My car is already messed up but I guess someone decided to top it off. I walk out of my buddies house to find this

I was kind of pissed off but I said screw it I'll probably never find the car that did it. We went to get some beer and when we came back, I had an urge to check this van that was parked like 5 houses down. And sure enough

The paint from my mirror went from the front fender of his car all the way to the very end of it. :brick:

Looks like you got proof for one hell of an insurance claim there. Do file a report with PD

yeah, I had a similar instance. Found a car that parked near me with my paint all over its mirror

Had a police officer come down, make some notes, call the owner of the car and politely informed them that they would have to pay for the damage to my car

problem solved

Yea , I got a police report and their insurance right after I saw that. Now I just need to get some estimates from the body shops.

Sorry to hear what happened.

That's great that you are taking action. I want your car to look like it used to! One of the cleanest on ctech.

Thats what I was thinking. Believe it or not, people are so clueless, absentminded, and completely involved in their cellphone conversations that they would swear up and down they dont know what your talking about until you show them THEIR OWN CAR!!!!

Here's a tip I learned. Always park next to people with expensive cars or brand new models. Drivers in worthless early 90's minivans and trucks dont care at all. Stupid sloppy assholes.

I had the same thing happen, but never caught the dipshit.

The car is getting the radiator support pulled out right now. Hopefully I get it back tomorrow so I can get some estimates on the fender and mirror.

I'm sure they wouldn't question the hood which had a meeting with mr sawzall. :hehe:

I got a little luckier than my friend a year ago, he never found the person that hit him.

That about compares to the damage my 5th gen sustained. first it got totalled from behind with a milk truck and about a month later some jackass completely fucked the front end by running up over the hood, then turning and driving off the passenger side.

Oh yeah, and did you figure out if you're gonna need any front end parts?

LoLoLoLoL....<<that was for the stupid people in this world that do stupid things, and park 5 feet away from the damage they do...just like the people who rob stores then come back the next day trying to buy something from it ...haha...sux man but congrats on finding the doosh bag who did it and hope you can get it repaired soon...

isn't it amazing how the mind works? How it told you to check that van? Good that you cought them though, at least the damage wasnt bad, but still I'd be pissed. What happened to your friends car is just messed up cuz that back end is messed up bad....

agree fucking 100%. i drive to work during rush hour, and its amazing how many fucking RETARDED drivers are out there in the morning on the phone. WHO THE FUCK COULD THEY BE TALKING TO!?! iTS FUCKING 8 IN THE MORNING! god damn get off your phone and drive. its bad enough you're half asleep, drinking a coffee/ eating breakfast, but you have to be in a fucking full on deep conversation with someone at 8am? give me a break. im waiting for the day some dumbass drives in the back of me. hello new car!

It was some really old guy.


Oh yeah, and did you figure out if you're gonna need any front end parts?

I basically got everything taken care of except the front bumper and battery tie down. The bumper I'm going to leave alone for now, the body shop told me the bumper can be fixed. If you have the battery tie down that would be great.

Bout all that remains of my 5th gen are the headlight shrouds. I don't even think I had the battery tie down when I had the car. It was just kinda... duct taped... ssshhhhhh.
