Angry My new X1 damaged in a parking garage

Unbeliveable.. I have had my X1 for 3 weeks and today I found out someone must have hit my car while parked in a garage, and dented my passenger door and in front of the passanger door under the side blinker..
Cannot believe who would do these things without even leaving a note. Same thing happened to my old car 6 months ago in a different garage.
I called the garage and asked for photos / videos, they told me only the police could get that. He also told me I was like the 10th caller with the same problem today..
I called the police, they told me I had to come down and report it first. Sounded like I would be wasting my time.

Sad day.. pictures to come of scrathes and dents..

Just hang in there, take a breather and go to the cops. Whoever did this must own up.

That's excessively annoying. Frankly I wonder if it's not better that you did NOT see who did it and stop him or her before he/she could flee.
I know I would be very unpleasant with the runner I would catch before he runs...

May I suggest you clearly explain the parking attendants that they must save the relevant CCTV sequence for police inquiries, even if they cannot provide it to you. Threaten to sue them if the footage gets lost or messed up.

I had a similar situation a couple years ago, and I had to threaten a bank manager of a lawsuit, coz he did not want to hold on the footage more than the legal 30 days -expiring less than 72 hours later- , and I knew the cops might not get a court order that fast.

The lawsuit speech did the trick, and we got the tape....

Anyway, sorry for you bro... Hope it will look even better when fixed..

Hey, sorry to hear that Can you not get your insurance to threaten the garage company?

I had more or less the same incident nearly a month ago, what is more sarcastic is that my car was under dealer's responsibility and they had no surveillance cameras where they left 10-15 bmws! You should definitely go to the police station if the garage security has the footage. You might have insurance and might not want to deal with that but If you don't, that idiot will probably do the same again and leave recklessly without even writing a note. I'm so sorry to hear that and can imagine how upset you are.

I know exactly how u feel demojac, mine was backed into by a rubbish truck two days after taking delivery... it spent 3 days in the panel shop and a small fortune to get its smooth lines back

Gut wrenching stuff

and some F.Face reared its tow bar into my X line front spoiler lip just yesterday.. an instant marble sized dent..

Report it to your insurance company!
But first you need a police report/claims number, and make sure you tell them you weren't in Te car at the time, so then your not at fault and ur insurance won't go up.

And then beat the crap out of the guy who did it, once u get the footage!
Lool I'm just kidding
