Aha, rather than changing your driving habits you now drive over the hoops :lol:

Well, I won. £150 cheque and £50 grocery voucher. Just goes to prove that challenging these "get out" notices in car parks/ car washes are worth it as long as there is a clear, and provable case of negligence. Suggesting I had photographic evidence was a risk; but evidentially, it collapsed their case.
So thanks guys - and remember, always carry a cheapo, one-shot camera in your glove box. I will.
A Pyrric victory, though. Tmorrow's my fourth day of bodywork repair (weather, wind etc not to good for spraying). And in only two weeks time, I'll give the damage a final compounding and polish.
And hey, that cellulose has given me quite a buzz.
:P :P
