    Ya, I wasn't about to go chasing them down, thats a whole different ball of legal $hit that I dont wanna get involved in.

    Also, I think that they must have been using a sling shot or something, cuz it was much louder than my music, which was very loud at the time (first day with the new system installed ) and the damage isn't from baby chicken goo, but from the impact. It looks much like when you get shot with a paintball.

    My mom's car had a few small dents from some neighborhood kids throwing **** at her car (not eggs, but rocks she thinks). The insurance wouldnt cover it for her. About two weeks later a hail storm ruined the paint and dented every car outside within a 5 mile radius or so of her house, including hers. Insurance DID cover the repairs for that (and the old dents as well, naturally) to the tune of $2500. She was really glad she hadn't paid out of pocket to fix the previous tiny dents.
    Moral of the story: I don't know. But it sucks when kids throw **** at your car.
    So far the only problem I have had is a$$holes scraping me in the parking lot. It has happened three times in the last two months and IM ****ED. Im thinking of keeping a couple of orange cones in the trunk and putting them besides my car when parked.

    Sorry about your luck. I hope you get that covered or get some justice.

    what is it about new cars that attracts this crap? I'm so careful with my car and try to take care of it ... but there are no less than 9 dings, scraps, and the like on my car, only 2 of which are my fault. (and the first 2 of those happened a few weeks after I had it as well)

    it's like they target me. (us)

    I hear ya. I havent had my car for six months and it has so many scrapes and ****. I seriously am thinking of using some orange cones when I park. I am tired of non-driving mofo's who take to the road anyway.

    hmm

    I probably would have proceeded out of my car and beat some asses.

    This happened to me once except with a paintball, the little f-ers shot through an open windows and hit me directly.

    I stopped my vehicle and searched through a field until I found them pointing it at me again, to say the least his own weapon was used to beat him and his friends. Because this was out in the middle of no where I was able to beat them for a good amount of time, then I called thier parents.

    The teenagers were bloddied when thier fathers arrived, I think one had a broken finger (trigger finger, hehehe) and the fathers actually thanked me for beating them. I thought for sure I was looking at a lawsuit, in my rage I didn't stop to think I might get in trouble for this.

    Tell me about it! The stones on the road on the way up to Mt. Hutt are a nightmare. I have to be very carefull on the throttle and when behind the buses. I am tempted to get one of those stone protectors for the bonnet that I see on American cars for skiing trips. I think there is a place in Auckland that might import them.

    I don't think anyone has respect for generic cars.

    HAH I was checking my email on my phone, and it didn't show the quotes, so all I saw was what is quoted. Had me scratching my head for a bit
