First got keyed....Now THIS

so im sure a good number of you who have red through the forum's past posts saw my thread about my box getting keyed... kinda sucked.. but now i have a new problem on my hands...

- this one is a little worse, now due to the fact that i will have to get a new bumper. It plays out that after i park my car in the mall parking lot, someone who was next to me attempted to pull out of their parking spot and failed trying to, sideswiping my bumper and leaving it fully skinned and with a huge dent, then leaving the scene as if nothing had happened... I havnt heard back from insurance yet to see if they would cover the new bumper or not.. but cmon.. this is the second incident in two weeks with other people doing serious damage to my car.. this really blows!

Maybe you should consider moving for the sake of you Boxster.

If the paint is not damaged, many times you can make it look at lot better by heating the dent with a hair dryer and working the dent out.
