rear ended the 4th day I had it... very very very very minor damage (right next to non-existant)

and then broken into at my work, which dented the driver side door around the door handle slightly

Not sure if I should have added scratching it yourself like when pulling out of garage or driveway, backing out etc.... and the venerable wheels got stolen, or actually the car got stolen.

I hope everyones luck is much better.

Year 2000 - My e46 was keyed... TWICE!
July 2002 - my e46 was keyed... again!
August 2002 - my accord was t-boned by some stooopid-ass cabby

Talk about bad luck

Just starting modding.

Yea I know, it sucks.

But now things are back to normal and you can't even tell it was in an accident. But now its back to the modding.

I once hydroplaned a 320i, slammed into the guard rail and spun out of control going about 130 kph. That was fun. Hence, the quote I frequently hear from wifey whenever she feels uncomfortable with me speed of travel (see sig).

Angry

Some idiot pulled a U-turn right in front of me 6 weeks after I had the car. It took 5 trips to the paint shop and the paint still isn't prefect. Argh!

The majority of people drive OK but it's those couple of idiots that seem to follow me around.

One time a bicycle fell and hit the front right fender. Leaving a pretty big dent.
One other time a dog jumped onto the front passenger door and scraped it up.

Heres a pic after I filled the scratches with paint. It was sanded down and rubbed/polished afterwards.


And of course the scratches on the rims that lead to repainting all 4.

All I have are the few road chips...HOWEVER

On my way home from my BMW Performance Delivery I came across this flat bed semi on the highway. I was in the left lane and it was coming off from an on ramp into the right lane.

The semi rolls right over a whole PATCH of little stones and rocks on the highway and he pelts me big time. Sounded like a freaking machine gun with all the little stones nailing the side of my car. I slam on the gas to get away from all the carnage.

There isn't any major damage visible but there are a few chips on the hood of my car (small but deep, I think I see bare metal ) , maybe they came from those damn rocks! There are a few very small pits on my front bumer as well.

How about egged? My car was egged about a year ago. I washed it off immediately when my neighbor told me it happened. The egg shells left circle chip marks in the paint.

2002 325ci...

Edit: The person who hit me was a white male, senior in HS. However, the kid looked older than me, as he had a scraggly red beard and hair halfway down his back. Straight out of woodstock....
