Default Crap...I just got my first door ding........crap....crap.....did I say crap

I always park at work on the end of a row so I can cheat out alittle farther so that there is no way the car to my right car open a door and get me, at end of roow there is no car on right.

Well i had to go to another building yesterday for training.....There was no "end row" position but I did park between a nice bmw740 and a new saab. I thought i was safe.

I was able to look out from the 5th floor during the day and saw the saab gone, and a big white chevy pickup in its place. I forgot about it untill I just went to lunch.

I have a white scuff mark now and scratches go up and down where they guy got in and out of his truck and move the door up and down.

I can buff most of it out.....but you will be able to see it still. It was bound to happen.....the car was perfect for 9 months....now it will never be the same to me.

Sorry to hear. Go to your dealer and inquire about "paintless ding repair"

Default Use some polish to get rid of the paint, wax it, try not to look at it

Wait until you get a couple and then consider a dent repair session.

Kinda could give a **** though - it's just a leased piece of metal the importance of which pales in comparison to the rest of the week...................
