    Absolutely gutted...

    Just come out from tesco to this...



    There was no car parked next to me when I left it and the car that was parked there when I came back did not do it as it was parked to far back...

    I've got a feeling someone has rammed a trolley into it... I am absolutely gutted as I like to keep my cars pristine and this was no exception before tonight. :-(

    I parked where there were no cars, that's the thing that pisses me off... I think it's a jealous person that has rammed a trolley into the side of my car...I could cry...

    im going to have to treat her to a mod now to cheer me up... :-)

    Go and speak to the security and see if there were any cameras pointing in you're cars direction. Might get lucky!

    Hopefully it's not too costly to sort!

    Save the money from a mod and get it fixed or buy a baby seat.

    Not many people would ram there trolley into a car with a baby seat in it

    Oh, I'll be getting it fixed at the same time. Gaskell motor bodies is right next door to GNJ Motorsport so I'll get them to just drive it round.

    You need some paint correction looking at the picture Nathan! That's a good place to start

    Know exactly how you feel mate. Had the same issue some years back with a Kingfisher Blue A4. Had it just two weeks (from new), and like yourself tend to park away from other cars and trolley parks. Came out to find a trolley sitting up against the front wing. There was a dent the size of a half golfball on the wheelarch. Thankfully paint wasn't broken.

    Thought however that yours might have been caused by something else going by the broken paint and shape of the dent. Just another jealous a**hole with no respect.

    Read somewhere that only 3 out of 10 cars are privately owned therefor leaves 7 company owned so are not concerned who uses them or what happens to them, sods law it will be the owner who looks after their car lands up with damage you see them unload the trolly leave it and drive off cannot be bothered to place it in the trolly bay morons, and a lot of them about.

    It doesn't bud...
    The car is immaculate paint wise, no swirl marks/scratches at all... Which is the reason why I am so gutted about it.

    when the photo was taken the car was filthy... That's just an optical illusion.

    Ouch.
    That would bug me until it gets sorted.
    People who do such thing should be named and shamed.

    Hopefully not malicious! Probably a runaway trolley. People who just abandon trolleys without returning them are just plain lazy.

    And then people like me are left struggling for a space to park where we can open the door wide enough to get the baby seat out... nice one.

    Do you know this sh1t is getting worse. I would have no qualms dropping a flagstone onto the head of any f88kwitt that does this to cars & pisses off

    It really really narks me. Only last week i boll88ed an old coffin dodger at costco who loaded her boot & left the trolley right at the arse of my A5. Luckily i was coming out. The trolley bay was literally 20 feet away. I went totally nuts and told her she may lose a bit of weight if she walked back with the trolley

    Then get another quote. I've got something very similar to this if not a little worse due to the garage door flying in to my bootlid at the weekend, I've been quoted £90 +vat by one of the body shops in town (recommended, I work at a dealership down the road). Do it off the books and even cheaper...no vat.
