    Come back to the car today to find not one but two dents in the door & a paint chip, I could have cried. :( In all the time I had the MG I never got one dent.

    Some people just don't any consideration when it comes to other peoples property. :mad:

    Not so long back I watched a woman drive her SUV into the side of a car in a Sainsburys car park, she backed out the space & drove off & looked me straight in the eye as she drove off! So I wrote her reg down with a small note explaining what happened & left it on the car.

    Ho hum, anyone used the company ChipsAway? Are they any good?

    Yes I have used ChipsAway before, a man call Ralph Moffett based in Essex and he was very good. He then decided to move away (ruddy inconsiderate that) so I was left finding a replacement. Came across this wonderful Chinese guy called Wayne *Smart Tech* who is an absolute marvel on paint chips & scratches, alloy wheel repairs and leather trim repairs. Been using Wayne for almost 5 years now :bigsmile:

    One thing though Loz, if you see a ChipsAway guy then go directly to him, grab a card if you see him working or jot down his number if you see his van drive by.

    ChipsAway charge a hell of a premium to go through their call centre for you to make the initial contact, after this though you can then get his number direct and cut out the middleman ;)

    That sort of thing really bugs the hell out of me,i always try to park away from others especially 4x4 as they usually have kids in who just wang the doors open against what ever is beside them,i know they dont know!but it is still annoying,shopping trolley dinks are a pain in the but aswell!!

    Any CCTV around? If there is tell them you need to see it for insurance reasons then once you see it and get the number plate, hunt them down and put a dink or two in there head! :blink1:

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! He's back! [​IMG]

    It's a Virgin trains owned carpark run by NCP, I imagine to getting CCTV footage will probably cost me more in fee's that getting the dents repaired. :amuse:

    Report it to the police. They'd probably class it as fleeing the scene of an accident.
