:cry: I don't know if I am just over-reacting but I was very upset to see a dent in the back of my new "E". I speculate that an errant football was the culprit. I spent the week thinking that I could get over it. Not!
Great news though. After a visit from an expert dent removal technician it is gone. Whew!!!!!!!! I feel much better now. I don't want to worry about the "E" all the time but at 1000km on the odo. it seemed a bit too soon to start bashing it up. If your thinking about removing a small blemish from your ride I highly recommend calling in a Pro. Have you experienced any dings in your new "E". Lets share our horror stories here and find strength in eachother :cry:

:eek: well... good to see that no one has had the same sad experience as us. If you need to share a sad "E" happening, :wink: I will be there to soften the blow. :wink:

Not a dent but about a 4inch scuff on my back bumper form someone parking behind me. The scuff isn't that bad but to me you might as well have ripped the bumper off. My wife didn't notice it though

I've been driving an old beater complete with urban camoflauge for a few years now and I've never had so much as a scratch. Before that I had a brand new Honda Civic that was backed into three times in the first year and seriously dented in the side while parking at a grocery store. It was painted twice on the same side before the car was 2 years old! It's just the curse of owning a new vehicle. I know how annoying it is to see that first blemish. This is something I am not looking forward to when my baby finally arrives. I guess I will need to re-aquaint myself with the far end of parking lots. I feel your pain......

I have been parking on the bottom floor of my parking garage at work as far away as possible from others and in a stall where no one can park beside me. I don't want to hurt my Elsie.

I suppose that this is fairly normal for any new car so I should not feel too bad. My "E" has to have the damper assembly replaced -under warranty of course- due to a horrible creaky sound heard while steering back and forth. Has anyone noticed a similar problem? Or God forbid an even worse problem? The parts are backordered for about a week or so. :cry:
