damn I feel you I had 8 of these things

Front Bumper Spoiler Damage From Parking Or Other---scraped more than a few times going to close to curbs, and speed bumps, it was repainted last month
Rim Curb Rash / Bent Rim---went on a curb which caused a couple bent rims
Body Dings / Dents---a few in various places from people opening doors too far and hitting other cars and visa versa
Cracked or Broken Headlight or Fog Light---had to get one replaced after it cracked after going up on a curb
Front or Rear Bumper Scratch / Scuff Marks--and one time I hit a cement pillar light post that was sticking in front of my parking spot which put some scratches on my front bumper, suprisingly it didn't get bent or deformed, just a little white.
Rock Paint Chip Damage--all over the hood, front bumper, I got some touched up
Interior Damage (Explain Below)---I ran over a skunk, didn't even touch it, lucky guy, and it sprayed a foul odor which lasted days inside of my car, the passenger seat squeaks like it is broken, my ML sub has blow twice
Other (Explain Below)--suspension damage from bent rims, garage door only opened half way, went to pull out, and clipped my sharkfin and scratched the roof

This was all that was wrong before this thread, the day I checked this thread, I got this
Vehicle VS Vehicle Accident-lady flew past as I pulled out of parking lot
had it since Oct, 9500 miles, she's been through a lot

wow.. after reading this thread, i feel much better considering i only have a few surface scratches on the passenger door and stone chips infront of my bumper and hood. I hate cleaning my car because once i finish drying her up, all the "new" scratches start to appear..

Only 3000 in 7 months?! im assuming it would be around 6000 or less by the end of the year... wow

Also, look at the garage, it looks like a showroom... +++++

My car is in perfect condition, Purchased May 25 2007 :-p

It took six months and now I have a ding from a shopping cart, people can be so careless. I spent a few hours trying to get most of it out (Dent King - as seen on TV), but in order for it not to **** me off any more I am going to have to have a pro take care of it...

EDIT: I had the ding removed today. $100.00 including a tip, because it looks as good as new. I used a comany caled the Dent Doctor for those in CA and NV. Well worth the price.
