Yesterday I parked my car to do some shopping when I returned to my car I heard the alarm beeping and saw the lights flashing, what the f**k?
turns out some truckdriver couldn't make the turn to the right and ran in to my car with his metal bar at the back of his truck.

:-( why is this happening to me? always careful where to park my car especially never next to a car etc. etc. and now this..

I am very sad and hoping that they can fix this damage properly (new rear sidescreen and maybe a new door? I don't know I'll have to wait and see..

I recently had 2 smacks like that in my Toyota Sienna. One I did. I was backing out of the garage and being very careful to try to avoid hitting the benz on my right side that was already backed out. Didn't know I could cut the van so sharply, but as I was watching the right hand side view mirror, the left side was heading toward the garage door opening. Then the crunch.

We got it fixed at the shop and you can't even tell it happened!

Then my wife went to another person's house and pulled into the left side of there driveway. Just as she took the key out of the ignition, the SUV in the driveway on the right started backing out and didn't know she pulled in so he steered to the center of the driveway. Made ding that took off the door handle and dinged into the sliding door.

Once again the body shop made it so you can't tell it has been fixed. Did a nice job of matching the metallic paint too.

So I suspect they will be able to fix it up nearly as good as new.

Sorry to hear of it. You do your best to use common sense to give others room and this occasionally happens. Sometimes I think nice cars are "idiot magnets", it sure attracts enough of them.:( Hope you get it fixed soon.

Ouch! That sucks benz. I hate seeing the pics, I can imagine you hate seeing it in person.

Hopefully you get the same type of folks to work on yours as mtiede.

I just got a small ding out of my door, and the paint touch up is still an issue (since it was very, very small ding). That big of a ding, the body shop can fix. I hate the fact that I also park away from everyone, walk the extra distance, and some truck/suv insists on parking as close to me as possible. I think they are jealous!

Recently I was pulling into my local grocery store when a ford expedition suv cut in front of me. I began following it and then realized that theres no point in confronting the careless driver so I just waited behind him until he parked so I can park my car. Next thing I know he puts his car in reverse and gives it a generous amount of throttle. He ends up driving on top of my hod tearing part of the front bumper and denting the hood and completely destroying my left headlight. I got it fixed and my car is looking good. Driver said he was extremely sick and couldnt see that I was behind him. He was extremely sorry for hitting me and was trying to explain to me that my car suffered minimal damage and that I don't have to fix it. I guess he thought I was stupid. So, I told the insurance company to repair all they could, and that price doesnt matter so I got a new hood, a new front bumper, new headlights basically a new front end. The bill was around 4500K when I could have fixed it for around 2300$.

Sorry to see that buddy.

Its repairable just make sure it gets done by a reputable shop and you will never know it was there.

That hurts looking at the pictures. I have to see mine in the garage everyday as I wait for parts to repair the damage from a suicidal Bundes Bunny almost a month ago. 4,000 euros damage from that early morning incident.:mad:
