Mmmm... the day i put up my ST184 for sale @ carsales, this happens on my way home from work. The worst hail storm of the central coast's history happens and gives my bonnet and roof quite a few.. err.. speed dimples :rant:

Someone at my work took a few photos, these hail-stones were sitting for at least 10mins before being picked up... So they were LARGER!

Thanks to having only 3rd party insurance, I get to pay this out of my own pocket :thumbsdow

nah didnt break any glass fortunately, i dont feel so bad compared to others cars. Most of the damage is to the bonnet (pin size dents) and a few on roof, only 1 on boot.. I was lucky I was only in the smaller hail at the start of the storm for 2-3mins where i pulled off the road into bunnings warehouse supply shed :)

Heres some pics of someones car who stayed out in the storm the whole time:
