Someone keyed the turbo!

Yep, that's right. Down to the metal, two nice lines from the front of the right hand side of the car all the way to the back. Not nice at all, my brother is spewing. Any ideas how the panel beaters will treat this, will it be a full repsray on that side of the car?

One f&*cked off me!

Re: Some keyed the turbo!

treat them as racing stripes as it will probably be a bare metal respray on that side of the car.

Re: Some keyed the turbo!

I'm not freaking impressed, the more I think about it the more I want to scrape two lines down the person who did it. What the f&&k is wrong with some people. Honestly, I can not work out why they would do it.

Because there are people on this planet who are so pathetically lacking in intelligence, maturity and respect for anyone/anything, that they would do such a thing without a second thought. I would consider scraping a lot more than two lines down the person if I caught them. I feel for you.

Aaron, you have 3 dings now? Don't tell me it has been more women in statesmans...

Re: Some keyed the turbo!

Thats why my XR usually stays at home and rarely ever see's a carpark. It has been keyed once when I first got it (only minor fortunatly, the idiot who did it wasnt smart enough to do a lot of damage) so now the wagon does all the shop carpark trips. If I HAVE to take the XR, it gets parked out of the way where it's not worth their energy to walk over to it to damage it.

I hate the scum that do these things, I'd beat them if I caught them, even if it wasnt my car. Even if it was a HOLDEN!

Re: Some keyed the turbo!

FF Lynch Mob job???

At supermarket car park, I pull into a park. Chic pulls in next to me. She slams her door open, and bang, straight into my passenger door. Big scratch and dent.... I get out, she gets out - I just stare at her. She shrugs and says "sorry" and buggers off. I am speechless. Thought about chasing her but figured I would beat the shit out of her, so I just bit my tongue and walked off.

Should have done something I guess.

Buy keying, that's another thing altogether. That's deliberate vandalism!!! People who do that kind of shit dont deserve to be allowed to drive!

Re: Some keyed the turbo!

Hi all,

Father in Laws 2 day old Teriroty Ghia parked in golf club car park on local High Schools sports day, keyed to the metal on PS front door, two days old.

He was Pi**ed.

It nearly killed him, he had 6 bypass's done on his heart not too long ago and he nearley lost it, all I can say is Scum like that deserve to have thier Knee caps broken, several times.
