Vandalism

Anyone have issues with this?

I've had my car vandalized twice now. Today I went shopping, came out and there was chewed up candy bar all over, smeared into the paint, and gum streaked all over the windshield.

Is it jealousy? I don't get it.

Its in my user details. I live just outside the city. I didn't take any pictures of the mess. Other pictures of my car are in my build thread though. Check my sig. Just went home and washed it all up straightaway. I was planning on washing it that day anyway so it wasn't a really big deal.

Oh, and yeah, I do. I never double park or any of that BS either. Dunno.

Its jealousy! Couple of weeks ago I parked outside a mall far away from all the mini-vans like I always do. Didn't take up two spots or anything like that and when I get back to the car a truck parks so close to me drivers door that I can't open it to get in so I have to go in through the passenger side. There is a note on my windshield asking me why BMW drivers think we are special. Really? There was no other cars within 50 yards or so. All I did was park far away so I wouldn't get accidentally hit by a shopping cart or door and someone has to do that? My question is what is wrong with some people?
I feel for you!!!!!

Might just be the fact you drive a really nice car and people can be retarded. Luckily I haven't had that problem, especially at school. *knocks on wood*

I've parked away from the crap minivans and lifted pick up trucks and find some dumbshit in a beater park next to me. I know they do this to piss me off. Worse yet is the idiots who drive across the parking lot and don't bother watching for other vehicles. I almost got nailed in a Target lot by some soccer mom yacking away on her cell with a boatload of rug rats in back. I'm glad I had my driver side door closed or she would have drilled it.

Basically, we're damned if we do park close and damned if don't park close.

All the more reason to shop online instead of the mall whenever possible.

I wouldn't park out in the middle of nowhere, it just makes your car (no matter what it is) a target. I've seen people pissing on a vette parked out in the middle of an empty mall parking lot.

Honestly, if you can't deal with the normal wear and tear that comes with driving your car in a city, don't drive your car in a city. Or, get a different car. LOL, a friend of mine and I once saw someone parallel parking in front of my car and they bumped into it a bit while backing up. She wondered why I wasn't upset by this. Bumpers are for bumping, whatever. If I couldn't handle my car getting bumped into, I wouldn't have parallel parked it.

It is a case of jealousy.

I went to Meijer's one night with a buddy and came back to a bbq sandwich thrown and spread out all over my front windshield and hood. It's a shame, it really is. I don't bust my ass to go out and disrespect someone elses property, but unfortunately, we live among assholes and idiots.

I can sympathize. I recently put up a thread about something like this. In my situation, it was less severe than yours. But I parked away from all the disrespectful idiots not taking up multiple parking spots and came back to find a greasy hand print on the front fender just above the wheel well.

I disagree with the poster who considers all of this normal wear and tear for living in an urban environment. It is not normal wear and tear. There are those of us who like to keep their stuff nice. I treated my Focus almost the same as my 135i...granted I'm more anal with the 1.

I also have had issues with my Ducati when I first got it. Random people would just walk up to it and proceed to touch it and what not. Really irritates me as I don't know if it'll escalate into someone climbing on my bike or inadvertently knocking it over. It has happened to other riders.

That is not normal wear and tear. Driving down the road and your car gets a chip in the paint from a truck throwing a stone is normal wear and tear. Some idiot that pushes they're shopping cart into your car or bangs their door into your side when they get into their car is not normal wear and tear IMO.

Hey, I expect rock chips, scratches, road rash, EVEN nicks in my door from people smashing theirs into my car. These are all minor, accidental or unavoidable things. I get more upset about finding a new door ding, but I've been guilty of it as well. It happens. I'm not sure I've ever seen someone do it on purpose. In some really tight car parks are tough to avoid it. The city is like that.

All of that is what I would consider normal.

Someone hitting your car while they park is not. Nor is vandalism. There's never an excuse for it.

The ONLY way to give a flat is to pull the valve stem. It doesn't ruin the tire, it just leaves the owner in need of a compressor. But even that is wrong.

I don't like the door dings either so I park a few spaces beyond the other cars. Not WAY out there but not in the pack either. I've still gotten a few nicks but nothing major that I am sure of. There is a dent on a back fender, however, that might just be funny formed metal but it looks like somebody could have slammed their fist down on the fender at that spot.

Why people do bad things is a proverbial question. It is because they are messed up. If they didn't do what they did to your car they would do something else stupid. Many of the punks that do this would nearly wet themselves if you walked up and challenged them in the act.

That last paragraph is resonating. Stupid that this has happened to OP. His car does look sick.

IDK about overt vandalism like that, but I've gotten more door dings in 12 months of ownership than any other car I've owned (all over 5 years) and probably more than all other cars combined

I'm terribly sorry to hear that Alex. I can't believe people would do crazy things like that.

I also park far far far away from everybody so that I can avoid door dings or dents from careless drivers. I guess doing that can also cause problems. Damn if you do, damn if you don't. This is just sad.

We try to take good care of our things and keep them pristine as possible. Somebody intentionally vandalizing other's properly is just wrong.
