TOTALED ( well kind of .... )

The car must have some how rolled back when I got out, or I was an idiot and did not pull ahead enough. Yes I do have a string and a tennis ball but the kids ripped it down the other day .... maybe i can blame them ? haha

all in all I am not a big fan of garage door handles

going to visit a local body shop that supports our pca region see what they will charge if I leave it on or take it off the car.

The bumper was not perfect to start, the PO had touch up painted a ding on the rear and a woman must have bumped into me with a shopping cart because i had small xxxxxxxxxx marking on the one side. so its not all of a loss I get to fix up those and get the rear bumper pads painted at the same time.

When this is done I think I might just cover everything in the garage with bubble wrap

Sorry to see that but this kind of thing happens to all of us at some time or another.

I was called out back to inspect the scape down the passenger side of my wife's BMW 325i this afternoon - less damage than yours and it looks like it might buff out but its hard to keep cars in pristine shape!

Fintro11 you ruined it!!!! Hand over the keys jk.
I was thinking this was going to be real ugly. But trust me, you can fix that in photoshop in no time at all.

I think its still driveable by the way.

I have had identical marks on two of my cars. ...slow learner. Now I have a little padding material duct-taped to my garage door hinge.

I'm pretty sure you would have no problem telling your insurance company it is totalled.

I disagree Randy, it is definitely not drivable Garages can be scary places
