Bet your neighbours love you taking pictures of their cars :p Anyway, I see a running theme there, though to be fair most cars over 3 - 5 years old will bear those sorts of marks. A mobile smart repair person would have a field day. Don't suppose there is a concrete pillar in your car park with all those colours on it?

Yeah you do see rather a lot of this when you go looking for it. I doubt they've all got them from collisions with the car parks concrete pillars.

Usually from car park mishaps as that's where people misjudge the size of their car the most. Gives a car character in my opinion.

I remember the photo Niel put up with the cat on the car roof. The car park down there looked a little cramped in my opinion.

Out of our 5206 members there must be some who have these kind of battle scars on their bugs.

I had this on my 107 which wasn't my fault. I didn't inherit it though someone scraped against me while I was parked.

Image

A few months later I reversed back carelessly and hit a wall causing this, I didn't claim on it though was going to get it seen to by a body shop and pay for it myself.

Image

Then as fate would have it I totalled it against a concrete pillar which meant the bumper needed replacing anyway and this was an insurance job. By far the worst of the lot.
