People, in general, are dicks. Went with my girlfriend's parents to Home Depot once, in her dad's brand new F250 HD edition, and came out of the store and saw some guys park near the truck...one guy turned around and peed on the tires. WTF, piss on your OWN vehicle, or better yet, walk thirty feet inside the store and use the proper bathroom!
(no sheetmetal damage but it is still sickening)
I feel your pain. I bought my pristine beautiful SLC two weeks ago and I've been hit 3 times in the last 8 days.
Two times were by uninsured drivers as 100% their fault, the 3rd time the fender got smashed as it was sitting in the parking lot at school.
There's either something very wrong with drivers right now, or this is a crazy summer, or I have horrible luck.

That's a dumb commercial.
Brand doesn't come to play in this.
It's disturbing that these ppl go out of the way to just personally F with you by damaging property you work hard to acquire. They can't just live in their own bubble. That's not the way they roll. They have to destroy and ruin everything and anyone that they choose to cross paths with.

this is my fear with any car ive owned (except for my first car, a 1996 ford explorer i had in 2007) . I like to keep my car clean and some people just don't understand that. this is why i'd rather daily a pos mk3 or toyota or something so i dont have to worry about stuff like that.
I bought a nearly-new, 07 Impreza with 16k mi a few weeks ago.
I drove it to church this morning. Walking back to the parking lot, I see a Toyota Land Cruiser, with a woman hanging out through the half-way open passenger door, guiding her husband as he's reversing out of the spot next to my car. I walked closer and saw they had about 6 inches of space between my car and their spaceship.
I waited for them to back out, and assessed the damage: wifey slammed the door creating one nice dent (with paint transfer), and slammed the door again and removed some of my paint in an adjacent mark.
I'm going back next Sunday with a note for the Land Cruiser.
I always drive beaters, usually with rattle can paint jobs so I'll park anywhere, go ahead hit it with your door, you'll care more about what happens to your car than I will my truck. Loved it when I was driving my old C10 because it took quite a few new car doors, left a mark in the dirt on my truck and would leave a ding in the lip of their door.

It may be slow, but at least it's ugly!
