Angry ding ding round two.



Washed my car properly at the weekend and found a ding in the tailgate. Going to try and pull it at lunch time. There is also a scratch on the tailgate, so I'm thinking it's a car park incident.

NOT HAPPY !!!!!!


I'll take pics at lunch time and add them to the thread.

I know, I know.

Going to try a suction puller on it. Similar to this but smaller.

I have no idea when it's happened. But seeing as I simply have not had the time to wash it in the last 3-4 weeks I have not seen it until Saturday afternoon.

I got a ding on my decklid after the first week of ownership. I now found another ding over the left rear wheel. And I drive around forever looking for the best parking spot away from all the retards. The parking absolutely sucks here and I hate people and their general disregard/lack of respect for cars.
Im to the point that Im going to do a walk around inspection of my car before leaving the car park and subsequently kick in doors if I need to

suction puller didn't work, as I suspected, so I guess I need to call the lease company tomorrow and see what they want to do about it.

Oh well, bye bye to my nice car for a week or some, so some little prat with no idea can spray the wheels bright pink "for a laugh" one lunchtime. I know that they won't care about the car as it's a lease/company car and therefore I don't care about it either.

Argghhhhhhhhh

I appreciate what a pain in the a*se it is, even if the car "isn't" yours.
You're still paying for it and want it to be pristine

Hope you get it sorted.....

And please don't comment on the cleanliness of the car, I rinsed it on Sunday having washed it on Saturday and within 10 minutes it was covered in bloody tree pollen again.

The lease company inspector is coming to see it next Wednesday morning. Ho hum.

If you removed the boot-lid lining, is there a chance it could be rolled out from behind?
