some little arse decided last night would be a good night to key the entire side of my car and 11 others down our road... :evil:

could be worse (trying to be positive) as other cars had their wing mirrors broken off as well...

second time it's happened to us in the past year, now I'm not normally an angry person but this has really got my goat, what I'd do if I could catch the preson who did it - off to chop some wood as i need to be violent :twisted:

am regretting having a £300 excess now as it's not worth claiming :cry:

I know exactly how you feel.

Some tw@t did the same to my '05 Ibiza a month ago, all 3 panels down the offside, tw@ts.

Should really get it done on the insurance as I have protected NCB.

one of the reasons I have a car worth less than £500. I couldn't give a sh!t if somebody did that...it would just add to the pre-existing scratches.

...just as well as my last £500 car got nicked.

wasn't worth claiming off insurance :roll:

still, can understand why you'd be hacked off with a newer car.

i never understood why those little f*ckwits randomly decide to f*ck up everyonelses stuff, i'm into bangernomics aswell, cheap car means it wouldn't upset me too much if it was scratched but keyed,that's deliberate wankerism, to quote vincent vega "you just don't f**k with another mans automobile!"

a while ago my brother went to get in his car and found 2 tyres slashed along with 3 others cars in the street.

unfortunately the little sods who do it have nothing better to do and think it is fun/funny and they haven't gotwhat you got so decide to ruin your stuff. my attitude is that they should prosecute the smaller crimes very harshly to help stop the small crimes becoming bigger crimes later in life.

I had one of those "feel good" moments last year. 3 Muppets posted an youtube vid of them repeatedly running over a car and stage diving on to the roof (it was a soft top). It quickly made its way back to the marque owners forum and all the other motoring sites. Within 48 hours on the site they had identified the perpitrators and with the help of a few police friends on the site handed over the evidence to the police (including their names, Adresses and their Army numbers!). It ended up getting some national press coverage.

Nice to get one back! Oh but these weren't "kids" - morons (avoided using the word "adults" ).

The mindlessness of this kind of vandalism really irritates me.

my car cost £600, its an old golf and i love it i have a disclock on it and it came with a cobra alarm, the only problem i had was a kid rode into it on his bmx and scratched it down the door, i went to a bodyshop and was quoted £240! gutted. i had a £75 escort when i started driving and two kids nicked it and happily enough ended up getting locked up- great! its just something we have to live with. kids damaging cars are little cowards cause they wont do it in front of you, but if i ever did catch one i dont know what i would do........ :wink:

in fact my lady is about to sell her car she got on the never never and buy a mk1 toyota mr2. she says its too risky to have to pay for a car, and try to keep insurance costs down, just for it to get done over.
