Isn't it annoying when some hits your car.

Hi there peeps how's it going?

Am a bit annoyed to be honest my blood is boiling, some nana hit my car in the car park and damaged my front splitter and bumper and I don't know who it was.

Plus some of the wrap got damaged. I am soooo angry. If I knew who it was I could stamp on there head

My bmw has been hit 4 or more times now because of other drives error.

I hope your cars are fine

Ash

Not good.

I must admit when I park my car I look for the widest space, park a distance away or make sure I parked next to cars that appear to take care of their car.

Nudges in the car park are very common.

Nobody ever leaves a note.

Yeah that's what I did today and that's what I normally do like you. Look to park next to nice cars

I know your pain. Here's what happened last week to my fiancée's car - luckily however it was a taxi driver who declared himself to the police the next day. Still, lots of hassle!

I religiously park away from others and next to nice and expensive cars

Still didn't stop my car being damage 3 times, offside panel now has a bit of a scratch, bumper had a hole put in it, and a tiny dent by the drivers door now. Never been left a note..

I don't want to sound like a total d*ck, but I now, when I have to park in an 'unsafe' area, Ipurposely park like a complete bell, to try and get people to park away from me, or give it a load more room - as long as it stops me having to fork out for other people's mistakes then I'm a little bit happier.

This sort of thing absolutely infuriates me!!

Last year I parked up and went into a shop, and could see my car from the checkout as I loaded all the shopping on to the conveyor.

I watched in horror as some absoulte moron failed a reverse park 3 or 4 times, got closer and closer to my car, then hit it, got it out, rubbed it a bit and began to drive off..Dented the front bumper, huge scuff mark and the headlight...

I couldn't beleive it..

Needless to say, someone else tried to flag them down, by which point I had left my shopping, ran out the store and threw myself at them as they tried to leave

Possibly stupid at the time but I thought what the hell..

They coughed up eventually because I went legal on them, but they had no intention of stopping or doing anything. Assholes.

So to solve this, we take the wifes car shopping now!

Yes, one can wonder about that... Costs about 6.000 EUR to repair, at least I don't have to pay for it.
