That scene from Pulp Fiction comes to mind. He says it perfect.

Really sorry to see that. Cameras in the lot?

Some people need special torture.

Just look forward to a nice, new respray of the hood & bumper. This is what insurance is for.

Really sucks. Can't post the words that come to mind....

Sorry for your misfortune. Hope the pics nail the perp.

That hood is going to need more than a respray.

Oh man, that sucks. Someone backed into my Mercedes the other week and left two gaping holes in the rear bumper cover (20-year-old urethane shattered, after all).

I think at this point, the dash cams are ABSOLUTELY necessary...keep it on when you're parked so you have indisputable evidence...

sent you a PM.

Someone did the same to my wife's 993 -- not as bad as yours,
but the thought of trying to match 20 year old paint is scary.

That is my worry, but everytime I go to look up dashcams I am overwhelmed with all the cheap junk out there and I give up. Someone should make a DIY on this

Good luck with the surveillance video, I hope they catch whoever did it.

Sorry that happened to you. Not that it's a fair comparison, but many years ago I came out of a store to find the door of my Golf caved in. It had to have been full on deliberate. I know it was just a Golf but it was my only car and had no body damage until then.

And last summer I met a friend for a smoothie. I left my helmet and leather jacket on my motorcycle, as it was in plain sight of us. When we went to leave I walked her across the parking lot, still within sight of the bike and maybe 100' away.
When I walked back towards the bike I was just starting to get that "hey, something is wrong here" feeling. A guy was standing nearby and said, "hey was that your jacket?"

A woman had been parked near by in a white van and she had stolen it. I was prepared to follow her but the direction she went forced me to stay where I was until I saw which way she turned. I got on the bike right then but she had disappeared. Never again will I leave my gear on the bike.

Just because misery loves company, I'll tell you that first of last year I was at the track enjoying a DE dinner on Saturday night when I came out to find my boxster dented on the side by the fan vent hole. The dent was exactly shaped like a bumperette. A fellow Porsche driver did the damage!

No note. No visit from a driver the next day. $1,800 worth of damage.

I made lemonade out of rotten eggs when this happened to my beloved miata. Not to mention, I didn't have comprehensive insurance at the time so I bought a fender from japan and painted it with my dad
