    Default well after all this fun...... i give up !!rant!!

    After spending the last 4-5 months actually enjoying my car. All plans for future mod's are scrapped.

    After recently having the pleasure of lump giving the car a good clean. Many Thanks

    and the change of window seals to black rear lights front lights and a few other mods.

    After someone running a trolley down the bump strips the day after lump cleaned it, that was bad enough

    Cleaned the car friday afternoon. With brand new jetwash, and snow foam. Many Thanks to Auto Brite, and of course Lump.

    I came out to it saturday to find someone has pretty much scratched every panel on the car. Front bonnet looks like someone has dropped a bag of pebbles or someone has sat in there car in front of mine and wheel spun for half hour. Even windscreen now has tons of small chips.

    Roof slightly scratched. u wudn't even think i had took it to Lump.

    So i guve up with the trying to enjoy it. Gonna keep it for work and thats it.

    Unfortunately that also leaves me with a set of 19" VXR alloys. Which there is no chance in hell i'm risking putting on the car.

    They are currently being refurbed in anthracite.

    Owned them for 3 ****ing weeks.

    On the other hand if anyone has a shotgun for sale, i will be waiting for them to try it again :-)

    I can imagine how you're feeling mate, you must be on a complete downer. I'd wait til you've calmed a bit down before you make any decision on your wheels.

    Like KS i too hate reading posts like this...

    I swear someone in my road is scratching my car too.. every day i get a new scratch or scuff!!

    It beggers belief why people cannot respect others property..

    Only a year ago i nearly had a scrap with a guy down the road who decided to enjoy his can of wife beater whilst leaning against my car.... He could not fathom why i was asking him to get off my car!!

    Grrrr some people..

    to hear of this type of news & do feel for you. I do think you should pursue this type of senseless vandalism as much as possible. Little or no respect for other peoples property is just getting out of hand but it’s us who have to chase the authorities for all we are worth or ask if you have one ‘The Neighbourhood Watch’ hth ...........

    If you report it,Then you get the response,"safer not saying nothing to the culprits as it makes them worse"

    I can only imagine how bad you feel matey, one of the few pleasure's I enjoy in my mature years is my car, I regard it as my main toy (You gotta have your toys) lol.. which is why I decided to buy a Insignia.

    Its one of my biggest worries when I leave the car parked up that some **** will try and re-design it to his own tast, I just don't know what's happening to the world honestly. A lot of people should not even be on this planet, they have little respect for people's property, and I doubt they even know the meaning of integrity.

    I must admit I am lucky that I now live in a area which has very few issues with any sort of vandalism, mainly because we live in the sticks. However I do remember well, the hassle and damage from mainly younger teenagers and kids when we lived up in Lancashire. You just could not leave your car outside without some passing yobbo deciding it would look better with a long key scratch down the length of it.
    We used to spend hours cowering behind curtains peering through the windows everytime we heard noises outside in case someone was up to no-good, and the area was supposedly the posh part of town if you like. (hope that doesn't sound snobbish..lol)
    In the end we had a large garage built, which at least stopped the car from being damaged. The trouble is.... you cant keep it wrapped in the garage all the time.

    I feel really sorry for the guys who treasure their cars and have to park it on the street at night, especially if its part of a estate with a lot of young people about. I was brought up on a council estate when I was young, but we never damaged property or damaged parked cars. Pure vandalism was rarely heard of, afterall what was the point, unlike a minor theft which may gain you something which I can understand while not condoning, vandalism gained you nothing so it rarely happened. Sign of the times we live in unfortunately, a product of our too liberal society and lack of effective deterents.
