Unhappy Sad Day

My beautiful blueberry got sideswiped in a parking lot today. 😢 Luckily the person who hit her called the military police to report it and we exchanged info so her insurance will be paying.

Sorry to hear that. These situations can be incredibly frustrating.

She came in at 40mph or what? That's not just a small nudge.

Jeez... that's quite the side swipe - sorry to hear. At least she reported it and didn't do a hit and run. Good luck on the repairs!

Thanks everybody it’s always heartbreaking when your baby gets damaged. Yeah she was clearly in a hurry and tried to pull into the spot quickly otherwise she would have just nudged most likely the bumper. Since I’m in Germany I’m trying to figure out who best to get it taken care of. Lexus dealership is about and hour and a half away but there is a Toyota nearby and they said they should be able to take care of it so I guess I’ll trust Toyota to do it should be about the same as Lexus.

Hate to see that, I know thatís a bummer to say the least. Good to know it was an honest person though, just something to thankful for. Surely, Toyota can get it taken care of for you.

I decided to just have Lexus in Frankfurt do it. They are going to do all the work dealing with the insurance and the labor etc. They were already doing the TSB for the turbo regulator too so 2 birds 1 stone.
