  • A McMansion but no regular lawn care or lawn service
  • A luxury car but base insurance with high deductible
  • A luxury car but no garage space to park it
  • A luxury car fighting for a street parking space instead of paying for valet secured parking

Instead of hating on everyone and everything, pay the full freight if you want to 'live large'. Otherwise, get a Ford Focus or Hyundai Elantra and buy some peace of mind.

JMHO
Do yourself a favor and don't worry about what other people do.

This logic is part of what's wrong with society. "Don't be mad a the person who vandalized your car because he can't afford one. Just take extra measure to ensure it can't be vandalized." Thats like saying women should all wear nun's clothes to help guard against rape. I have news for you, if i had a Ford Focus or even a Hyundai Elantra i would STILL be pissed if someone egged it or vandalized it.

But according to your logic, if i have a $20k car I should be OK with it being vandalized. But if i have a $65k car i should keep it under lock and key and only valet it? Is this right, are you effing serious? Some of us actually like our cars. And while it is just a car that can be repaired, i do find it offensive when someone randomly vandalizes one weather it be expensive or average. There is no place for this crap in our society and there is no excuse for it.


Envy is weak and pathetic, and shouldn't be celebrated or rewarded with respect.

Not sure if they new each other cause the vandals were roughly 18-25 and the guy was in his 40s. Yeh toronto is full of dicks, my mom parked her car at foodymart to buy some shopping and some dick banged his door against my moms car. The door car was dented in. We didnt see tho but we saw a door chip mark on the paint and the door was also lumped in.

It also could have been an older benz, OP never specified.

I live in manhattan. The lease on my car, if I leased, would be around 400-500 a month. Want to guess the rent for a parking garage in my neighborhood? 400-500. For the price of a garage I could get a second car.


Just because I enjoy a nice car doesn't mean I'm "living large". This isn't an M3 for Alpina or w/e. I don't think it's too much to ask for others to respect personal property. I don't see why instead of blaming the vandals, you choose to blame the owners. It's like "what a woman got raped? Oh it's her fault for wearing a skirt and actually going outside without bodyguards."

On topic, I found bootprints on my hood and roof this last Sunday. Someone had decided to climb onto and over my car. Luckily no dents.
