Man, okay, you guys are making me feel a bit better, thanks.
I am also feeling a bit worse for all you guys who have been in some serious
accidents with these cars, such terrible things to see all these damaged babies. :(

So, I took some photos of my damage, but now it definitely doesn't hold a
candle to any of these other people's posts, but to me, no matter how insignificant it looks, does NOT take away from how crappy it feels to see it and know what happened. :\





thanks again for the words guys.
and really hope your cars are going to be back in action asap, and lookin' good as ever!

On the fourth of July of last year, my baby (Pontiac G8 GT) was all detailed, ready for a nice long summer of driving enjoyment, I had all my modifications that I wanted done, and tuned to perfection. Then on my way to my cousins BBQ, some idiot made an illegal U-turn in a highway entrance ramp, and darted out accross the street I happened to be driving down. Mind you, my car was flawless before this, I kept it showroom fresh all the time, I put over 8 grand into it and was finally looking forward to a enjoyable summer with it, ready to break into the 11's with my modifications. Then in a split second, everything was ruined.

Here was the result...




I didn't get my car back until september. I lost the entire summer with my car, and when I got it back, ended up selling it a few months later. I can't tell you what I wanted to do to that son of a *$(# piece of $*(% ($*&@ mother $*(%(@ idiot.

Point is, stuff like this happens. Can't do anything about it. It sucks, I know, but you gotta keep your head and go on. There's more important stuff in life. Not to sound like a geezer, just saying, takes away some of the pain. Maybe...

Wow. this is painful to see, I can only imagine how that must've felt to have gone through. I am so sorry to hear that, it's soo true, no matter how smart you are about keeping your car the safest and best looking you can, somebody else out there can always ruin it all in no time flat.
it's just incredibly unfair in the grand scheme of everything, but apparently, unavoidable.


What made you sell after it being rapaired? what do you have now?

Look up a Paintless Dent Service like DentPro or Dent Guys and/or look for referrals. There are some bad outfits out there as well so do some homework. Besides Dent removal,some of them also do Urethane Bumper repairs with OEM Paints. They can do some amazing repairs when there is no major structural damage involved. Don't ask why I know that. Sorry to see and hope you get it fixed to your satisfaction.

Yeah, yours would crush me too, and more.
It's not just the physical damage, it's much more than that to me.
I don't take lightly to my simple fault that occurred when it ended in the fact
that I injured the car. It could always be worse, but it still hurts.



Did yours get fixed up okay?

the way i get over things like this is to think that this isnt my last car and i can eventually buy another one if i go crazy enough over it. Not immediately buy one but eventually buy an updated model of the car.

I just bought it the first week of march,
To 'ladybug', that's very sad to hear, I hope you
Get it fixed like new, and it doesn't set you back
Too bad.

Thanks for the replies guys, I am trying
To figure the best and quickest way to make it
Like it never happened, I just know I will have
A hard time getting over it after investing so much
Into actually getting this car, to have this happen
So soon after acquiring my dream. It's a bit
Bit of a blow to take in.

I TOTALLY feel you. Mine got obliterated in the hail storm we had here a few weeks ago. Just as you said. I take pride in my car and any imperfection is not acceptable. She has been in the shop almost 2 weeks and I am going crazy. I do feel your pain. Besides being upset I would beat myself up over it and never let it go. Best of luck!

Sucks, i know how it feels. Most of us do. Got my first door ding within 30 days of owning. It was fixed and yours will be too. Anyways, it will be fine and if you drive it at all regularly this stuff is going to happen. I will give props to anyone who has all original paint on this car after say a few years. It's pretty flimsy. as myself and many others have learned.

I pretty much back into all spots if i am going to be there for a length of time and really backing in is safer than going forward since the back end slops upwards. Id rather scratch my mufflers than pull my front end off (neither has happened yet lol)

I only had about 2K miles on mine when i hit a deer and it did over 4K in damage. Atleast with yours its pretty easy to fix and much faster. Still that is a horrible feeling.

I found your post. I'd say that could easily be handled with a little bit of filler and smoothed out easy enough. A new cover runs $300 and all new paint and clear would run a little more than I mentioned in my PM, due to having to primer as well. That could run you close to $1000, plus shipping of the cover which runs $140-$150. your cheapest route would be to have your existing cover repaired, an hour tops in labor to fix the scratches, plus paint.

You bought a car and you can't afford to repair a small ding?
