    Feel your pain, I had to have a dent taken out of my passenger door after some tw*t in the office car park did the damage but never owned up. Cost me £40 for a dent company to take it out. Hope you get it sorted.

    sorry but this is exactly why i take two spaces up when parking whenever i have to go to anywhere like a supermarket
    or in the car park at work
    fed up with people damaging my car and not being decent enough to own up to it

    People are scum and genuinely don't care about other peoples property. Combine this with the scary number of people who simply cant drive and you end up with some nasty results. If I have to park my car in a busy car park with tight spaces, shopping centre, etc, I take photographs of the cars parked close to me and inspect the car before and after. It's pretty sad that I feel the need to do that

    Theres not a lot you can do when this happens cos its a civil issuenot criminal.My son asked his insurers for advice when this happened to him onhis pristine S3 and they couldn't help and said they would have to reconsider his NCB as a result.He also uses the Bora now to go shopping.Everyone Parking over 2 spaces might help someone revise the min size regs.Some need bigger cars as they get older and less mobile

    I left space for the kids to get out of the back safely as they car next to me was sitting on the white line. Came out of the swimming pool to find a parking ticket on my wind screen for parking beyond the parking space! Council find anyway of getting money out of you.

    This is the very reason why I park over 2 spaces at the furthest piont to the shop entrance. When its a car park where I have to pay, I buy 2 tickets and put them either side of the dash.

    Guys, it's probably best not to openly admit to causing criminal damage to peoples cars on a public forum.

    I've edited and removed the relevant posts, thanks.

    I parked across 2 spaces at my local shopping centre about 6 months ago because I know it's a really bad car park for door dinks and people pushing trolleys in between parked cars, and bearing in mind it's a free car park, I came back to find a big yellow ticket for £80 on my windscreen!! Never paid it and had a letter through the post saying it's now £145. Still not paying though!

    Simple solution, park at the far end of the car park away from all the careless/selfish/idiotic chumps. Works wonders for me.

    Regardless of the why it's done, parking across 2 spaces is just as selfish and wanging your door into someone else's car. Come on you lot, leave that sort of antics to the BMW brigade...

    Pfft, I park over 2 spaces almost always. Like I said, I buy 2 tickets and put them either side of the dash. I find that no matter how many times I park at the furthest part of the car park, some plank want to park next to me, even when there are loads of spaces.

    I already have. I get over it. There's no point shortening my life stressing about what other penarses do. Do all you can to proactively avoid the situation occurring ie by parking as far away as you can. I would almost wager the fact that parking over 2 spaces you are far more likely to get you door keyed deliberately than accidentally, or you'll end up on that Piss poor Parking facebook group mostly populated by Mercs and Porsches.

    Society unfortunately is circling the drain. People don't give 2 ****s about anyone else's property anymore, as has been said above it's a civil matter rather than criminal if damage occurs in most private car parks. There is nothing realistically you can do unless you are lucky enough to be able to throw money away on a lawyer for such a matter and have hard evidence. I, like most normal people don't which I guess is why I'm writing this reply in the A4 subforum as opposed to the RS4 subforum.

    Don't get me wrong, I regularly get proven wrong and random acts of kindness do restore my faith in humanity every now and again. Also I do take pride in the appearance of my own car, and do detest the state of affairs we appear to be in, hence I do everything in my power to avoid getting my car damaged by other twunts. However, it still happens and maybe I've been lucky not to have any serious damage done in that respect I've lost count of the new marks I have found on my cars over the years from bloody car parks.

    Actually someone reversed into my car whilst I was stood next to it. I got their details and such like, but when I got some quotes for repair I realised all car repair places take the royal piss. So I tried polishing it out and lo and behold all the paint from his car came off leaving a couple of creases in the rear arch. One quote was for £350. I had the chaps insurance details but you know what, for the risk of the repairer doing a bodge job (I've seen far too many red re-sprayed panels fade to pink over the years) I've decided not to pursue it and chalk it up. I'd rather live with the crease than risk the repair even if someone else is paying. In the end though, life's too short to stress it.
