I normally go through your stages 1 - 2, then have a 3rd stage .... Revenge.
Sorry to see that but at least the repair isn't to expensive even though it should be them paying for it.
This is the main reason why I'm going to get a front and rear dash cam with a parking recording feature. Some people just really don't see that as damage because they themselves wouldn't care and it is really frustrating to see the result of your hard work treated like that.
Here are the Five stages of my CX-3 being hit while parked.
I cannot be 100% positive but I think my neighbour hit my car.
There cannot be damage to my car, it was parked in my assigned spot outside my condo.
I can't believe the way 'those people' park.
Hit my car will ya' ? I'll get you for any 'perceived' wrongs , past, present & future.!!
It doesn't look too bad.
Just that small fender piece, no one will ever notice anything happened.
I'm sure it'll be fine.
It's not only that small piece, the one behind is also cracked.
It'll never be safe to park my car anywhere, ever again.
Why spend all that money on a new car ? people don't care and will ruin it for you.
Oh well, what's done is done!!!
New fender piece $ 26.32
New shield (the piece the fender screws into ) $ 28.04
Labour (in a condo, -30 C , let the dealer do it ) $38.99
Taxes, shop supplies, etc total cost in the end $ 104.27
Got off easy - The second piece screws into the bumper piece , which is one piece all the way across .
Nice to see it wasn't expensive.
