So street parking in Brooklyn finally bit my *** this week. Some jerk backed up into my car entering/leaving their driveway and left. Someone witnessed it and was nice enough to leave a note for me with the plate number of the offender. I didn't get an official police report since they were unable to interview the witness. The car that hit me was a Lexus RX350 with a rear bumper guard that wraps around the corners. It looks like this vehicle has a history of backing into things because the whole rear end and metal bumper guard is covered in scrapes and dents. I have multiple pics but won't post--I will share them with my insurance though.
Geico ran the plates for me and the other driver is also on Geico, but they were unable to reach them and they will probably deny anything happened.
I am totallty bummed and eating a very large cinnamon bun right now to lift my spirits. A little over 4 months old and less than 1100 miles. This is my first new car and first Audi. I love this damn thing.
Do you think this will hurt the resale value and has anyone had any bodywork done similar to the damage below? Cost? Do you think it will pound out or will a new paint application be needed? It's Cuvee Silver, so how readily available is that for repair?
My cinnamon bun isn't big enough.
