More Parking Damage :(



Knew I shouldnt have parked in the space, but i made sure i parked right in and even either side and the stupid driver next to me still managed to scrape it, Im guessing it was the dark BMW next to me with Reg number PAM in YORK Thank you very much PAM

Only had my car 4 months and I've had 2 battle scars, my old car in 8 years only managed 1....is the R unlucky for me

Not unlucky, you just seem to attract damage. I've had one door dent in 18 months but there are a couple of very light scuffs starting to appear. They all look like they will polish out though. Hope you get this repaired, or track down PAM and have her stump up some money..

Even though I only have CTS I always make sure where possible to park away from any other car. Would feel sick if that had happened to me.

Hope you get it sorted soon mate.

You've got the worst luck ever mate...

I had something similar happen to me in Keswick when I had my previous car. I parked in a space when I came back a transit van was parked next to me with a women leaning in the side door getting a mountain bike out. Her bike shoes caught my door and put a massive scratch down it. She turned round and said "Oh sorry" and continued to unload her bike.

As daft as it sounds I never felt the same about the car after that.

Yours doesnt look too bad though and I think it would be a simple repair for one of these smart repair guys

The car obviously means a lot to you and you clearly have love for it, which is why you feel after what's happened.

You could have parked far away as possible, and it still could have happened! So don't kick yourself over it. Keep it clean and when it's fixed it will look just as good as it all ready does. Failing that I'll clean it for you!

I scratched my boot today, any chance you'd pop over and clean mine?

Lol, its a bit different when you inflict the damage, but to find someone elses incompetence has caused you bother it really annoys me.

the car park was jam full and it was the only one we knew too....parking away may also not be a good idea at times, because it may attract people to your car to have a nosey, no win situation

We shall see Lvy :P i might have to get you to work your magic, by the time you finished detailing it, cars might just slide off it :P
