Vandalism

Found out my brother's FR-S got vandalized today, went to the grocery store yesterday and when he came out a giant dent was in the center of his hood. As if someone punched it....


Took it to the dealership, gonna be sitting there for about 2 weeks, waiting for a new hood to come in and get it primed and what not...

Something's seriously wrong with people these days >.>

Anyways to prevent this in the future for him, and me as i am getting mine next week.

Is this a question?

There's no way to prevent this sort of thing. You can try to avoid it by parking away from other people, but there's no sure way to prevent it during the day. It helps at night to park in a garage; I rent one for several reasons, among them avoiding vandalism.

Yea but dude, behaviors like that arent acceptable in society.

I can only pray that whoever did that would have a heart attack, die, and burn in HELL!


*phew* just needed to get that frustration out

This would only cause more problems than it would solve. If you worry about every time someone gets close to your car you're bound to die of a heart attack.

Of course it's unacceptable, but as long as there are haves and have nots, acts like this will happen.

What I find ridiculous about these kinds of things is that people are jealous and feel like they're vandalizing/ egging some rich guys expensive car, meanwhile the Camry parked next to it probably cost a bit more.
