    From Pulp Fiction - a classic quote:

    Lance: Still got your Malibu?
    Vincent: Aw, man. You know what some ****er did the other day?
    Lance: What?
    Vincent: ****ing keyed it.
    Lance: Oh, man, that's ****ed up.
    Vincent: Tell me about it. I had it in storage for three years, it was out for five days and some dickless piece of **** ****ed with it.
    Lance: They should be ****ing killed. No trial, no jury, straight to execution.
    Vincent: Boy, I wish I could've caught him doing it. I'd have given anything to catch that asshole doing it. It'd been worth him doing it just so I could've caught him doing it.
    Lance: What a ****er!
    Vincent: What's more chicken**** than ****ing with a man's automobile? I mean, don't **** with another man's vehicle.
    Lance: You don't do it.
    Vincent: It's just against the rules.

    That's not good Especially if it's happened before. I always try and park on an end bay and tucked right up to the curb so at least only one side is vulnerable to attack as oppose to both sides.

    Sorry to hear,I hope it was a key and nothing sharper as a deep scratch isn't an easy fix.

    I don't know what I'd do if I saw someone key my car - I think I was scary enough when I interrogated some woman who opened her door into my brand new S3.

    do you think one of these dent removal guys will be able to paint these in? instead of going to a body shop.

    second photo is worst, as it quite deep.

    its not fair :(

    I'd actually rather that someone tried to nick it. Keying is just mindless bull**** and they should be shot.

    In fact, when the revolution comes, they're first against the wall.

    I hate to hear of this kind of mindless damage of people's property, that decent spuds put all their care and hard earned into, just for some jealous barsteward to come along and do THIS!!! Makes me so mad, it really does. Hope you manage to get it fixed without too much trouble, dude and I hope doing this to your lovely car made the flukker feel good about him/herself, ..NOT. :( x

    Don't know where you are but some of these smart repair guys could make a good job of repairing it. My father in law had a chips away guy fix some awful scratches on his car and you would never know it had happened. These guys are hit and miss though so try to get a first hand recommendation for someone in your area.

    Going on the pics I doubt that could be fixed by a detailer. The scratch looks too wide so the process of softening the edges to avoid light reflection wouldn't really work. If you ask me it's a fill, wet sand and polish job rather than a full panel respray.

    I feel for you. Not nice to have this happen, especially when you suspect it could happen again after getting it fixed. It's probably little consolation but it actually looks like an accidental scratch as when people key they usually go right along a panel.

    Sorry to hear that pal!
    Unfortunately we can't always pick who we work with.

    I had my front bumper damaged in the work car park and that was only two weeks into ownership.

    Had this happen to my old car a few years ago, but the scratches went the whole length of the car. Thought I could live with it and around as if nothing was there but had to get the whole sides resprayed costing me an arm and a leg :-(
