Just been keyed... 48hrs after a respray. Is this a new record?

Recommended Posts

Sorry to read this James.

Report it to the police as criminal damage and insist they look into it, explain it will cost £5000 to get a respray. They will check the camera's for you.

However, much of the time, even if they can see the person they may not be able to indentify him/her.

But its worth a punt, equally to get revenge and ensure they can't do it again as to get the money for a respray.

Possibly save your life. Check out this website.

Thanks for tips guys,

I might try pursuing the CCTV route, just out of interest - but I imagine I'll get something along the lines of: 'we can't show it to you 'cause of data protection' or 'we can't retrieve the CCTV videos because they're held by an off-site agency', or 'we'll release them to the police' or something of that nature... I'll give it a go though - see what happens!

I could have been a trolley, but it's so low down height-wise... it's almost as if someone would have to stoop to even key it.

There's a paint guy not far from me - I'll see what he says about it, or failing that I'll get back in touch with the place I had the respray.

It's nothing more than petty jealousy, done by the kind of imbecile who will never be able to afford something so lovely due to their lack of intellect and ability - so they try to stop the owner from enjoying a beautiful thing they have worked hard for.

These creatures are recognizable by their reversed baseball caps, which hide their lobotomy scar - very similar in function to a hoody.

The best we can do is report anything we see happening to the Police and be prepared to act as witnesses.

I actually caught three dimwits trying to scratch the bonnet on my Esprit with the aid of a packet of crisps - using the sharp edge of a crisp as a scraper. I was the best laxative they had ever known.
