Morons in my parking garage......

People have no respect for private property. When I had the E90, they hit both the stock front and rear bumpers, leaving scratches and indents in them. I have been hit in the front bumper of the E92 as well in the dead center, which left a couple paint chips on the bumper. That wasn't a big deal. However, when my detailer (Matt @ Luxury Details) was detailing my car yesterday, he pointed out to me that some moron created a golf ball size dent on my passenger front bumper as if something like a baby cart or a shopping cart have hit it.......

I know the feeling Kev!!!

I repainted the whole front bumper as well when I installed my Hartge lip, integrated the whole damn thing since I wanted to repaint the bumper anyhow! Someone backed-up dead center, nothing major but I knew it was there!!!

Thank god the M-Tech bumper is coming soon, so that's gonna ease the pain quite a bit.

put the paint protection film on your bumper when you install your M-tech.

I know it gets yellowish in time but it protects you from getting minor scratches.

I saw a couple of cars hitting my front bumper while they were parallel parking in front of me but I didn't get any scratch

Thanks for the advice. I guess I'll have to look into that with the way these morons park..... Check your PM about my new crazy ideas

i struggle with the same in my garage.. two brand new door dings courtesy of the person who parks next to me.. unbelievable..

i should take a picture of how close this woman parks her truck.. for being rather large in size... im amazed how she managed to get thru (probably explains the dings...)

Should install a camera facing that direction to catch her in action, then file small claims.

these morons are not just at your garage....they're everywhere

the damages, dents, scratches on my car are all caused by them...not by myself

I'm planning to claim insurance sometime next year and have my entire car re-painted.
