Okay, I know this is an old post...but I'm really interested in what you guys have to say about this matter, because im fed up.
I posted a while ago about my AU II Futura, about 4 months in our hands now, that has been keyed numerous times and had doors slammed into it.
The paintjob was almost perfect once and was one of the reasons we bought it....but some indiot/s have not only scracthed the car again, but have also slammed another door into it. So now we have a blue mark and a white mark, and many scratches...
What honestly should I do? I catch the train in the morning, which is why this is happening, but the train to too far to walk from and my bike would get stolen in a heart beat if I rode to it.
I want an XB coupe that im saving for in a few months, but there is no way i'd ever let that be keyed....
Should I buy a really cheap car? Should I invest money in building an instant teleporation machine?
I spend a lot of time choosing where I park and who I park next to......
BA'1.5' Pursuit 290
Lightning Strike / Reflective Orange Stripes 'General' Dog - AP's German Shepherd and Best Mate - 02Dec1998-15Dec2003.
'Pepper' Dog - General's and My Little German Shepherd Sweetie - 1996?-02Apr2006. 'Sako' Dog - My Beautiful and Pretty German Shepherd - 2001?-23Aug2006.
But Sigma's suck, they use more OIL then PETROL .......... hehehehehehe
lol my astron II unleaded 2.6L 5spd RWD sigma owned... at least it owned my mates VK on several occasions. Cost me sweet FA to run, spent 300 bucks on mech fixes, 280 of that just because i thought it was important although you could have left it.
Still.... I can't really afford to buy a car that I take to train stations and supermarkets because by doing that, we wouldn't really need the futura that much. If it was a Ts50 then thats a completely different story
However, I will investigate safer places to park it...
i really do feel sorry for u guys that have this happen to yas... i cant imagine the anger id feel if i came out to find my car like that... all i can say is living in the country your a little bit less prone to these sort of happenings, but im not saying it dosnt happen!!! i just hope that when i finally get my P's and start drivin round that noone decides to key my car just because they feel like it or that their jealous... i dnt think id hold back if i caught them. but anyway i think all u can do is if u have to drive, try to find a safer place! best of luck. cheers
