Good luck man, I know how annoying that feels, this same thing happened to me more times than I care to remember. People have no respect for other people's property.
I've had paintless dent repair before on my Talladega. This time it was a foot long crease, not just a "door ding". There was no way someone with a paintless dent repair kit was going to fix that.

It went into the body shop the next week and was done within a day. Paint matched just fine, too.

Some people suck. Sorry man. I always try to be careful who I park next to but you never know.

For those people who are completely cluesless I guess we can get back at them some day, and realize they don't know any better.

Last year at SOC in Devens a fellow SAAB'er put a nice door ding in my back pass door and I guess they figured I wouldn't notice. Nice.... I could have hunted them down because the color of the offender was obvious, however I chalked it up to DRUNKENESS, and I know that my Dent Wizard friend wouldn't charge me much. It cost me a 12 pack of Newcastle

Always good to know a good paint shop and PDR facility.

I know the feeling of all this all too well. The entire 3 years that I owned my 05 Focus, I wasn't particularly careful about who I parked next to or anything of that sort. Never had a scratch, dent, ding, crease, etc on it anywhere. The paint, though a bit dull from being out in the winter weather, still looked brand new when I sold it to a friend.
My Saab, however, managed to attract 3 key marks on it within a month of having it. Unfortunately, they're all 3 down to the metal and would have to be rebuilt. They're not huge but they stick out rather nicely from about 5 feet away. And a nice blue ding in the driver's side door. And 3 or 4 chips in the hood that have been color keyed but not filled.
Some people are just so jealous of other people's nice things that they have to vandalize them to make themselves feel better. Other's are just plain careless and dumbtarded.

Didn't mean to dig up an old thread but I thought this was funny.

Looks like Jack is from the old school of the 3 R's: reading, righting, and rithmatic. Spelling came later...nice penmanship though

Funny thing that this thread came back up, my 90 vert airflow just got a very unwelcome hit and run last week. Scratched my new front rim, cracked my front airflow wheel flare in three spots and scratched my front bumper along with a nice scratch on the side panel. Baseball bat will swing if culprit is found on his/her car at least.

A simple doorbell ring and a "sorry I hit your car by accident" would have sufficed. Would probably not have wanted anything monetary since I'll do the repair work myself. Decency is a rarity these days.

First day driving my 9-3 to work it acquired a nice door ding. I was impressed.

My 9k.... I don't even want to TRY to count how many it has

The Goat, thankfully, has been generally spared the door dings. (I've jinxed myself, I know)


But the sand-blasting effect on the hood's leading edge is pretty wicked. It will need a respray soon.
