Hello and please help.

Post by Jerrypelter » Fri Dec 30, 2016 4:09 pm

Hi friends, my name is jerry and a happy new year to you all. I am glad to have finally found this forum. I am a qashqai owner and I don't know if any one can relate to this but am sick and tired of cowboys(no offence to our good farmers) who happen to hit peoples cars while parking :x . I live in London and this week alone i have been hit twice without any one leaving their details. I am thinking of perhaps installing grill guards/bars or frontal and rear protection system if such a thing exist. After researching, all i could come up with is that they may not even be legal. Any advice please of something that could protect my car whilst its parked outside and where can i get such a thing or who fits them. I know am reaching and any answers would help.

My car is 1.2 accenta premium reg 2014(new shape)

Thanks.

Jerry, basically you have to get onto the Web and play around with your Wishes such as on Amazon, eBay, AliExpress etc. just to get you going here are a few websites for you to look at. Do not forget as you mentioned be careful on the Safety Aspects and what is allowed for Pedestrian Safety. Make sure they have the EU Documentation some do not need adding to your paperwork, well at least here. Naturally there are the expensive and cheaper versions available - Best of Luck Dave :)

Sorry to hear of your woes.
You could employ an independent garage to fit these:

Would need to advise your insurers.

Hi Jerry, I feel your pain, the world is full of these idiots! Accidents obviously happen but I tend to try and avoid parking near cars who look like they are not looked after by the owners and then head for the parent and child parking spaces where possible..

I'm pretty sure Automotive Enhancement in the UK carry front and rear nudge bars and side protection. I've bought a few other things from them and they're a decent bunch!
