Out in car today and noticed another dent where someone had opened their door into my car:bang:

This brings the tally to 5 - none of which were my fault.

Getting really p****ed off now as I'm thinking of trading my car in and this is going to start hammering what little value it has.

My next car is going to be a Challenger tank (with optional bodykit and remapped ecu of course).:D

I wouldn't, they're noisy as, and their cosnumption is shocking, plus that it'd cost you about 1500-2000 quid to fill up at your local shell :eek:

I absolutely hate it when people dent your car because they arent careful with there own and what they do, really winds me up :mad: .

Especially when you are parked in a supermarket and someone rams a trolley into the side of your car, and then runs off, costing me £200 to remove the dent on my previous car :cry: .

I now always try to park in spaces either a bit out of the way, or if i do have to, next to a nice new car which the owner cares about. And i watch those family wagons as well where 5 year old kids slam open the door :eek: .

Joshua I take it you shop at Tesco'$ in Goole then? There are some right t0$$pots that use that car park.. :mad:

then again i recently had some stupid woman attempt to let her Nissan Almera mate with my Grande punto in those parking bays behind Iceland. Fortunately i heard a crunch as i came down that road down the side of the Halifax and caught her as she about to drive away a quick bang on the roof and a not so polite way of asking if she was going to stop and leave me her details que :cry: and the fact that her husband was going to be mad at her never mind how mad i was however every cloud has a silver lining and she had actually hit my towball and wrecked her number plate and front bumper not a mark on mine :D

Ive been in tescos at goole a fair few times, but luckily never had any little dents or bangs happen in there. Once i was sat in my car (this July), waiting for my mum to get a few bits of shopping for our party. Just sitting back and looking out of my skyroof (which i had open and it was very sunny), next thing theres this loud bang.

I looked forward to see that the idiots in this clapped out old Astra had bashed there door into the side of this 3 year old Mondeo, leaving a large visible dent. I though imagine what i would be like if they had done to my car. So i took down the Astra's regestration details, and waited until the Mondeo driver came back. I havent heard anything since.

My trolley bashing accident happened in Somerfields car park in Selby, about 2 weeks before christmas, I had only nipped in for about 10 minutes to grab a few essential office supplys (tea, coffee etc), only to walk out and find this massive ding in the side of my car. I hate shopping trolleys now, why cant they have soft foam around them.

Also people with large bags with buckles/zips etc really pee me off if they try to squeeze between your car and the next often catchin gsomewhere on either my car or the one next to me. :mad:

My last car before the Stilo was a Seat Leon sport tfsi. Within 2 weeks of owning it some Pr#cK had opened their doors into mine and caused a really annoying dent. Wayne Kerrs.......:cry:

I was thinking about this this morning (so distracted was I that during a service I forgot to put the customers undertray back on) anyway.......supermarkets make how much profit a year (?) surely they can afford to have a 'warden' at each branch (and giving someone a job) to take pics of damage done/stop folk parking in disabled bays etc...imagine how much more pleasent it will make your shopping trips be (i'm not allowed shopping cause I just buy crisps) and you will return there again (y)

There's places in my home town (not where I live now) tht are patrolled by traffic wardens since a new company took over. They really are wannabe-coppers with a grudge against the universe. We went from about 15 cars ticketed in 6 days to over 1000. The sit in a shop doorway, wait for someone to park outside on double yellows while they pop in to pick up a large item (when the store has no parking) and while they're inside for 30 seconds clamp/tow/ticket their car. There's actually a group of shopkeepers been set up trying to have their contract terminated. One shop saw sales plummet by 60% within the first week of the new wardens being on duty. MAybe these muppets should be on duty at Tesco and no-where else. Never thought I'd see a gung-ho traffic warden!
