This morning when I looked at the right hand side of my car I saw the worst thing I could have hoped to have seen. Some mindless imbecile had decided to scratch nearly the whole right hand side of my car, starting from the front door along until the rear panel. It's heartbreaking to see!

I went to my dealer, who are just fantastic at offering help to me for any little thing I ask them, to see what could be done. The pictures don't show it too well but the scratch is too deep to polish out. They have told me that it will cost about 3000pln ( about £600 ) to have it all resprayed.

This means that I now have to contact my insurance company, leasing company and when they finally give the go ahead I have to be without my car for about a week and I won't be getting a courtesy car as it's not written into my insurance policy as it's not exactly standard over here just yet. The whole thing is going to take an age to get down and I am so angry I think I will have to change my avator to 'unHappyman' ;)

Oh Dear, I am so sorry HM. ( THE ******)
No comfort to you I know, but £600 seems reasonable.
Surely, as you have a good relationship with your dealer, they will lend you a car for the duration.

I'm working on the owner regarding the courtesy car ;)

It is just so time consuming to arrange everything but the dealer has been fantastic and offered to help me with the assessor from the insurance company as over here insurance isn't straight forward when you make a claim and so any help you can get from the dealer is very greatly received.

I just can't understand why anyone would want to do it, really I don't!

That's sad! I think you need to place a sticker on your Civic. Something like "You touch my car — I break your neck!" ;).

Man, that is really sad! I hope you're sorted soon.

I would cry rivers if I found my car like that in the morning. If I knew who did it I would be calling my boss telling him that I had to work from prison next coming 10 years :)

Next few nights you will probably be sleepless.

Stand guard at your window, with a gun, and other useful anti-A-hole items


Really really really feel gutted for you, would hate for someone to come along and scratch mine ¬_¬ would be in rage mode
