I left my F Type parked on a street yesterday, just a couple of hours, but came back to a dented front wing and bonnet! No note, no witness, no cctv. I’m stuffed. Just going to have to get the insurance involved. I think it will need a new wing for sure, and possibly a bonnet. It’s pushed in at the side and is out of line.

Bummer, gutted for you. There are some real scumbags about. Hope you can get it sorted to your satisfaction.

this is absolutely sickening and people laugh when we park at other ends of car parks to try and avoid muppets who simply don't care. hope you get it sorted without too much expense.

Gutting to see that, especially given that it was a 'hit and run'. As the others have already said, hope you get it sorted without too much aggravation.

That’s really frustrating and sorry to hear. :?

How was the paint work before ? Did you have any stone chips.

Trying to find a positive. You will now get a full front respray. Not what you wanted.

Nightmare! Hopefully your excess isn't too much. I'd love to strangle the person who did this!

Absolute scum. Some have no respect for other people's property these days.

I know your pain, my TT is spotless, only a couple of months from going, and 2 days ago some kids on a (probably stolen) moped crashed in to the back of me taking a big scrape out of the bumper and then scarpered. Thanks for the bill kids!

Muppet’ is a good description of the person that has done this to your car!

I'd like to think they’ll get caught out somewhere along the line or even strangled as Mr.Tea mentioned earlier!

Hope your insurance can resolve things quickly and that it doesn’t put you too much out of pocket.
