Is that that no matter how carefully one parks your P&J some complete dork who shouldn't on allowed on the road may reverse into one's parked 993 . . .

As happened to me this morning in a car park on Stratford upon Avon.

Not sure if I can get this fixed before the Jolly Boyos Outing on Thursday.

I was Blackballed by the Illuminati some years ago now . . . but I could be the leper of the party rocking up with this . . .

Careless bastards. Great that you've retained your sense of humour.

I think that just about sums it up.

I hope you can sort it painlessly. Sickening.

really gutted to see that pic and hear about your misfortune Sad

It really gets my back up how careless folk can be in car parks.

A couple of weeks ago a commuter from our local station and the chappie usually first off the train and into his car and off - Le Mans start style - managed to smack one side of his car into one of the very fixed and unforgiving pillars, such was his haste to the exit... I think most folk in car parks only ever have two goals - park quickly or leave quickly and this is often at the expense of having all the requisite faculties engaged, sadly...

Looks like that was done deliberately, the other car being equipped with parisian parking sensors, although they didn't realise the height difference between the two cars.

Do you have a good sprayer?

I am gutted at that pic, i think i would have had an ***** pro lapse and faint leaving a stink cloud.

I watched my car be driven into twice, once parked outside my house on the road, the other last week.....on my driveway!!!!!!

There's nothing worse....but to do it to a 993...they will burn in hell.

My daily is covered with these. Amazing how inconsiderate other drivers are.

No need to be precious about it on the Wales trip now Phil. Not that you would have been anyway Thumb

Kim, I'm still grieving!
That lifted my mood a tad. I can hardly bear to look at it....
I doubt however that my conversation with the f@&king idiot would have been quite so civil....
