Nice big ding behind the front wheel. ************* WIPED THE DIRT OFF THE CAR around the scratch and then didn't leave a note or anything. Looks like it might have been a shopping cart or something similar.

******' pisses me off. That side of the car was pretty much perfect before this, and now it's got a huge blemish.

that sucks- my first miata got a key dragged down the side of it in a parking lot before it was even two weeks old... back in 91. Not sure which is worse, premeditated or accidental and then the decision to run.

I know the feeling. I had my 02 for 1 week before someone opened a door into the pass. door on my car. Luckily, by process of elimination, i figured out who did it (someone at my work) and made them pony up the $115 for paintless dent removal.

That's a ding! I thought it was a marking for a side marker light.

**** suckers, one of these days i would wish to catch them in the act. I had a big long scrape on the side in a parking lot, looks like some idiots was to lazy to park further away and tried to squeeze beside me and then noticed after he scratched the whole side of my car drove off...or someone just keyed it. And im going to college this sept, and ive heard alot of bad stories. Either im buying a car cover and always putting it over or talking to a principle or parking right in front of the cameras lol.

I once left a foot long scratch/smudge on a Magnum while parking a Buick with a gnarled side. I went inside, found the guy, showed it to him, he looked at it, rubbed it off with his thumb and said "Meh, don't worry its the company car."

PHEW!

it looks like you have one of those JDM/EU fender signals. why not pop over to CR and pick one up, plop it over the ding?

damage sucks.
