What have haters done to your BMW??

Seems regardless where I park, someone will park their SUV\pickup or POS next to you... door dings guaranteed..even if you park 1 mile away from them... Is there some "fascination" of parking next to a BMW or damaging it??

http://www.tuningemotion.com/forum/s...5&page=1&pp=10

Heard of fellow BMW's have their MTech lights cut and stolen, 5th set of valve caps, 5 sets roundels, dents on roof, scrapes, loose wheel nuts, and all have taken care not to park in non lit areas... List your hater list of annoyances..

>> They should have "designated" parking...

You don't want to get me started. I two new dings already in the past 2 months. Pisses me off. I try and always park so that one side of the car is next to the curb so I miniize my risk. I even park far away from cars and just like you said, when I come out some idiot is parked right next to me with a million open spaces. What can you do? I read that post about the fogs. My last car had 3 sets of fog lights stolen. I got a grill to go over them and never had a problem after that. Some people just have no respect for other peoples property. Oh well, I guess that why they Dent Removal companies. Just hate spending $50-100 for some idiot who just doesn't care.

Over the course of 6.5 years my car has accumulated 2 nearly invisible door dings, and my roundel valve caps were stolen one time.

Don't think it was "haters". Getting dings is inevitable if you drive your car and the roundel valve caps are nice little curiosities.

This is one of the benefits of living in a nice suburb of L.A. An E46 is nothing, and most people have new cars anyways and don't want their cars scratched. I I have had my car for 2 years and (knock on wood) never had a door ding or anything. The first 3 months I had my Ram it got dinged to hell.

So far the only problem I have is during Halloween as my car seems to always get egged.

I had 2 of my valve covers stolen...only one side..i didn't get it, but I was pissed nonetheless since they weren't the stock crappy ones.

Another time, this 60 year old woman was getting out of her car and then i ran over and put my hand in between her door which was travelling at 20mph and my car to prevent the ding. I told her to be more careful...

Last week after having my car for 8 months now I saw a quarter sized dent on the left side next to my hood. It looks like someone just put their elbow straight down on my car. So pissed. I know door dings are inevitable but this looks completely on purpose. Just like a couple of the previous comments I also get way more compliments than haters.

Damn that's harsh. All I've experienced are a couple door dings.

BBS valve stems were stolen but other than that nothing *knocks on wood*

Someone hit and run but that really isn't hater related.
