So at first thought, I didnt think too much of this guy at all and proceeded to drive. he gets closer and closer, does not make any hand/wave motion and keeps his arms at his waist side, nor does he say anything. Going at around 12mph he walks up to the very side of my driver door as im passing him and im thinking to myself, he is just doing one of those arrogant keep-on-walking the road to-barley-miss the rear end of the car, kind of pass. the second i fully pass him, he punches my rear windshield and ended up putting a small hairline crack at the top.
So details on my car, 330i zhp, rouge engineering exhaust. Its really not that loud of an exhaust. Background on myself, 7 years of driving and zero speeding tickets, zero accidents, not a day of wreckless driving.
Anyway, i slam on my breaks and roll my window down only to yell at this guy by asking him wtf his wrong with him. he yells back while walking towards my driver side window, saying i have an illegal exhaust. This is the continuing convo:
me - so you decide to hit my car because of that???
him - Youve been going up and down this neighborhood with that illegal exhaust all the time! (which is not true), i was trying to get you to stop but you almost ran me over, you know that!
me - well what kind of idiot walks in front of a car because of an exhaust?!
him - you know have to yield to pedestrians, you know that right!?
me- well youre an idiot for purposely walking so close to my car like that
him - (mumbling) well you have to yield to idiot-pedestrians
me- well i'll make sure i'll yield to idiot pedestrians like you next time...
him- great then, i have your tags so im going to report you to the police
me- go right ahead and do that (i didnt really care for his threat)
him - okay fine! (looking confused)
---I then immediately drove off irritated.
Basically would like to know who is at fault here?? even if my exhaust is illegal, can anything be done from a report? (if he actually does go thru with a phone call report) I dont care about reporting him as i dont want to waste the energy, time or if need be, any money, but im pissed he actually put a hairline crack in the rear windshield.
So im left with having to possibly hear him bitch again the next time i visit my mom or, I encounter him calling the police on me before i can leave the neighborhood. I really dont want to deal with this guy again but from the looks of it, i may have to put my stock exhaust back on, which i really do not want to, or feel like doing. Any advice appreciated.
