I woke up one morning to find a long scratch down the side of the car.

Now over the weekend someone emptyed a dustbin on the car roof and
scratched it again.

The car does attract onlookers and now drunk students. Thats it I'm changing it. Maybe a BMW. There's plenty down our street and nobody takes any notice.

Sorry to hear of your problems. I think you are taking the wrong action in selling up the 300C but if you think it will allow you peace and quiet then sadly you must go for it. Let us know what you finally do.
Cheers John

Problem is Stef that with a diluted police force and a government passing all the wrong legislation and courts with judges that don't know their ar$e from their elbow you would be the one to end up in bother - unless of course you did the job right!! :smashfrea until death do us part!!

People seem offended thinking its a expensive Gas guzzler.
I know I'll go and buy a 2.3 Mondeo 30mpg (0-60 10 secs) 223g/km

I know John, it's just so bloody annoying isn't it! I once had a 6 month old car sprayed from one end to the other with paint stripper, then a few weeks later it was hit by a 15 year old when he rolled 'his' car in my street!

Sorry to hear of your misfortune. I'm not sure that the culprits have sufficient intelligence to work out what is, or is not, a gas-guzzler. This may be of little comfort to you, but the cars that I know of in this area that have been vandaliised have all been run-of-the-mill family cars.

Heartfelt is all I can really say. People don't care nor appreciate that it's not only the damage, but the level of inconvenience, cost and lack of appreciation that you've worked hard for what you've got.

Really makes my blood boil. I'm sorry to say that I'm all for gated communities.

I'm for a restoration of crucifixion - but I don't think I will achieve my aims!! This works to a limited extent :nutkick: as does this :buttkick:but the permenant solution is best. Actually I blame it all on that silly bitch Elizabeth Fry and her prison reforms at Newgate. She was the start of all the problems and folk like Lord Longford continued in her footsteps. Then of course you have to remember that socialism has never been the friend of law and order - its very concept is alien to the purpose of Policing "To preserve life and protect property" Think I really should change my handle to Genghis!! :)

The price we paid for living in a "civilized" western country. In Singapore those who caught vandalising cars, public buildings etc. are canned. In Australia, those under age youngsters are getting away with almost everything apart from murdering someone. Even then they are put into a youth detention center which has better fit out than some hotels. Changing cars aren't the solution unless the replacement car is an old rag, perhaps find a secured parking spot may be a better solution. Thank God that I live in Canberra, most houses have garages.

I feel your pain, this is part of my post in December of last year. But I was fortunate, in some respect.

Unfortunately, it was not done with tape or even a brush, it was done with a key. Yep! Nice deep, uneven line from the taillight to the rear passenger side door. Bad news for the A hole that did it, I am a restaurant manager and he had come in to pick up some food to go. Two women were walking across the lot when he did it, took down his plate # and came in the restaurant and started asking questions and told what happened. The girl that waited on him knew it was my car, knew he just left and the women saw him walk out before he did it. I have his name and phone #, because he phoned it in and his credit card #, I have a witness, the car and plate. In california over 400 in damage is considered a felony. Called the cops and turns out the @ss is driving on a suspended License and has had 3 DUI's, what a turd. But his arse is mine and he doesn't even know it.

Invest in a CCTV camera and recorder. My mate's dad owns a security company and when my mate's car was broken into and vandalised repeatedly he got no help or interest from the police so he 'borrowed' one of the small B&W cctv cameras and a 24hr video recorder from the security firm. Next time two punks broke into his car they were caught in the act. This time the police came round to his place that evening to view the video footage. They knew who the punks were so picked them up that week and found one of them still had the implement they used to shatter the windows. Funny thing is that whilst the police were there watching the video footage the recorder recorded a young mum with a push chair walk up to his car, pull the tape off the shattered rear quarter window, unlock the car and have a look around inside. She stole a packed of sweets from the glove box... all this while the police car was parked right behind my mates car!!!! shocking. After that his car was never touched again.

Even a dummy camera might work?

Several years ago I had the same thing done to a new car of mine. Eventually we caught the kid and pressed charges and the parents were held responsible. Rather than me applying paint to the keyed scratch, the police suggested I get the car fixed at a dealer of my choice. The dealer told me to fix it myself as it was minor, but when I explained the kid's parents would pay the police and the police would pay the dealer, I got a new rental and they took the car and 1400 dollars later it was fixed. The kid never keyed another car. I wanted the kid to go to jail but the OL wanted kindness for the kid. So we comprimised.

I just got my car scratched at my schools parking lot. It looks like someone tried to key it but they didn't have the nads to go through with it. They still left a large scratch my drivers side back door. I wish I would have caught them in the act. I don't know what the problem with people is.
