Re: Ferrari rear ends me- while im standing there watching!

I guess you can never really tell how you'll react until you're in the situation... not trying to pour salt in the wound, just my first reaction to reading it. I city park on the street, so I've had to grow some thick skin when it comes to the WK and people's parking skills.

Re: Ferrari rear ends me- while im standing there watching!

sorry to hear that tilla...at least you didn't get out of the car and have him deny hitting you and try to leave...I almost got into it with a guy that hit me in a parking lot while I was in my car parked! I get out and he says I did not do that, it was already there. I said you muther fawker look at the red paint on my bumper and the white on yours...he kept denying it and multiple people called the cops cause I was in his face. Cops came and threatened to take us to jail haha but I made the cop give me his info and got it taken care of. Sucks but there are a ton of idiots in this world.

Re: Ferrari rear ends me- while im standing there watching!

maybe some Ferrari paint rubbed off and added value to your rig

I hope it gets fixed and fixed RIGHT!

i think i may have drawn an awkward picture for you fellas, this was in a parking garage, not the street or highway so they "damage" is not worthy of spectacle but i was just heated that i actually saw it happen when i least expected it- thats all.

this how it happened: he going like 5 mph closer and closer to me i see him so i watching the ferrari.... i think hes going to slow down right before my bumper but nooo... he just collides with my bumper still going 5 mph and since its not a collision status impact- after he made contact with my bumper he literally started to slide in and up underneath the passenger side of the bumper (mm's away from my exhaust tips!!!)
when he initially made impact the passenger side was dipped in about 5-6 inches. he couldnt back up cause he would rip off my bumper so i had the parking guy drive my car forward a bit while i lifted the right side up so it could clear his bumper.

he cracked the passenger side rear fog (from behind- 3/4 of housing is cracked) the two clips are broken off, and the holes to them are stretched to where its loose after i put in a couple new ones i had handy in the car.


im honestly a picky and stubborn guy and treasure my car like most of us do, it kills me to see any kind of damage, minimal or dramatic. unwarranted damage is just that "unwarranted damage"

yeah this guy is good for it but all he has to do now is "cut a check" i have to go and get numbers and shit and jump through hoops when all i want to do is drive.



EDIT_


might i add, are you wondering why he didnt hear the impact? he had music blasting in the car!!!! when he opened his door- the sound was blaring out like no tomorrow- no wonder the piece of shit didnt hear it. he actually got out and thought i was joking with him- he said- i said joking mother phucker!! i aint joking wtf do you think this is!!! look!! he says to me i saw you going crazy from inside but my censors didnt go off and i didnt hear or feel it so i thought you were joking......

what a joke!
I resent that statement!!! Are you trying to insinuate something about prius drivers??? LOL

Re: Ferrari rear ends me- while im standing there watching!

cheers fellas!

im going to try and get some proposals after work but hoping it doesnt rain.


update- my garage told me that the guy went to other garages looking for a new spot saying my garage damaged his ferrari!!- (hes got some balls this rich guy) they called up the manager and told him that he says your guys messed up his car last night--- of course the manager was pissed off now cause this rich guy is making up lies and etc behind his back to the very same company he works for.... WOW!

the manager begins to tell me how hes doesnt like that shit and is waiting for him to come back in to give him apiece of his mind about the whole deal last night. i mentioned how could he even blame it on your guys when he drove it himself and not for nothing one of your guys saw the whole thing and before i can even say anymore he interrupted me with.... "yeah the guy told me all about this morning and he told me how pissed you were, and i know you and your car, its sad man, really sad"

i said yeah, just for the hell of it, give me his last name just so i know he didnt try to pull something on me knowing that hes now looking for another parking garage to park in...


and the saga continues!

Sorry to hear about that and i would be so pissed too because i like everything of mine perfect and the littlest thing gets me mad, i would have been soo pissed off and even that i saw it, but i think its better that you saw it rather than coming back to a messed up car with no car in sight, that wouldve killed you

Re: Ferrari rear ends me- while im standing there watching!

If you would've said this happened in Manhattan in the street,I would've said I've see it all the time but in a parking lot. When my son was in a children's rehabilitation center on 6ave my wife asked me,why we don't drive one of our newer cars there. I called her down as soon as the car in back of me moved. Like it was on que,a shiny phantom pulls up to park and proceeds to play bumper cars until he's in the spot. When he gets out the car,he looks at us and says hello and goes on his way.

Re: Ferrari rear ends me- while im standing there watching!

SRTILLA - I think you got a little out of control on this one. first of all you did not get 'rear ended' someone merely bumped into you (slightly) in a parking lot - big deal. I would have belittled the moron in a rude way for not being able to control his vehicle but you apparently got up screaming and yelling at this guy like a child. You still haven't posted pictures, I bet the damage isn't even visible.

Meanwhile this Ferrari guy is just laughing to all his buddies about how some random guy pathetically lost total control over a MINOR incident in a parking lot involving a Jeep.
