I mentioned this above. I cant cone in from gate side as its deceptively offset which you can't see on camera and also the mini is parked straight back so I have to go in at an angle otherwise I run risk of catching something. I cone up street from left of the photo then carry on to the right just so back end is level with the tree as to the right is a dead end,full lock to swing front round then go straight back at an angle while watching both posts and his car as well as our mini then put gull left hand lock on to swing front back round once I'm on the driveway.
The annoyance is after speaking to neighbours is he never parked there when previous owners were in this house but in the designated parking 4 car lengths to the right of the picture.

I always thought you lived in a bungalow for some reason.

I was expecting more damage from how you described it. Still bloody annoying I'm sure though.

£150 repair at a decent back street bodyshop. I'd look big and get it done because as is, it'll be another old Focus shitter.

Plan is to find a second hand bumper,I haven't got 150 spare at the minute and won't have for the foreseeable. The colour is quite common on the st170 and an St bumper is for sale for 30 quid on ebay but again though that's down to what condition it's in in reality not the description as the seller may lie.
