That would be my worst nightmare.
I always always take 2 spots. I get funny looks but don't give a sh$t.
And don't take my car out on these busy holiday seasons.
I feel you, man. I'm disgusted.

ughh sorry someone did that to your baby. Luckily I have no dings, but I did get two very slight marks on the car, each time by some chick I was with ><

Some people are just careless. The other day I was leaving home depot and this jerk was about 20 feet from where they keep the shopping carts. Instead of walking his lazy *** over there and putting the cart back he tries to shoot it across the parking lot. Needless to say, I'm watching this all unfold and he totally misses. The cart was headed straight for a new BMW, so I ran across the lot and stopped the cart inches from the car. Turned around to give the guy a dirty look and he just waved, smiled, and walked away. I should have flipped him off...

OUCH! Sorry to see, hopefully it can be made right without too much hassle, that one may not correct with one of those dent wizard guys unfortunately, the metal is probably too stretched to straighten out easily.

That is what I was thinking. I see a fold in that metal which DS may not be able to get out.

Holy Crap. Sorry to see such a horrible thing... I dont know how id manage in that situation. Id hulk out and destroy the town... Did you happen to park relatively close to security cameras? I always try to do that so if i get something, i can try to talk to security about it if they dont leave anything..

I feel your pain. We've had 2 of those already. Looks like the same spot too, right on the body line.

thanks for the well-wishes, i will never worry about parking next to a fellow challenger owner

i asked a couple PDR places and they were not very optimistic about being able to pull the dent. sucks to think money i could be spending on air suspension or strut braces will be used towards "restoring" its factory appearance.

i don't think anyone would do this on purpose because they had no reason to. i was parked directly in the middle of a non-compact spot. i think someone was just in a hurry and cowardly re-parked somewhere else.

oh well, that's the price we pay for driving big cars and caring about keeping them in mint condition. i just hope it doesn't happen again or else

Ours was about $600 to repair. PDR was not an option. Good luck!
