Default 2nd Day of Owning an A3 and....

well, I couldn't have been happier. Yesterday was the first nice spring day of the season, and I picked up my car-- a 2007 2.0T 6spd S-Line in Ocean Blue. Today, the weather was the same. Just a perfect day for being out and about.

So, I go to pick up my dry cleaning after a trip to the mall, and wouldn't you know it-- some granola hippie lady, named Eilat, hits and scrapes up my rear bumper while trying to park her Toyota Matrix.

2 days into ownership, I thought I was on top of the world, and now I have to go through the motions to take my car in and get it fixed.

Gaffnova-

Sorry to hear about that! [] Life would be far better without hippies. They want to save the world, but all they do is smoke pot and smell bad. A combination of body odor and patchouli oil, specifically.
Hang it there, it will be fixed soon...and I can only imagine how frustrated you are with the whole thing.

I yelled at her pretty bad. I was pretty profane for the first five minutes, sulked for the next 10, and in a destroyed manner told her it was "okay" when she incessantly apologized before leaving.

The good news is that her insurance company no doubt takes the liability. The bad news is obvious. Not even a week with my new car before I have to take it in... Oh well... Good things come to those who are patient I guess.

Damn hippies...

Hope it wasn't too bad of a scrape and it gets fixed good as new! I usually park well away from other people to avoid incidents.

Well Gaff the only reason why I even got a new A3 was because someone totaled my 01 BMW 530. As the old saying goes.. "Sh** happens." Just be glad that it wasnt worse. It still totally sucks never the less! There should be like a $500 inconvienence fee when someones at fault

Tell her the bumper can't be fixed and replace it with a S-line or some other after market bumper.

Ouch... My wife always tell me to exercise, so I always park as far away from other people as possible but once you close your car and leave, you never know who is going to park next to you… Good luck to you.

I'm sorry and I feel for you. I've owned mine for a year, but haven't driven it in the last 3 weeks while it sits at a body shop being repaired from a freakin Asian woman driver who admittedly, without being on the phone, or putting on make-up or any other distraction, still couldn't stop in enough time to avoid causing the three of us ahead of her from being rear-ended. Fukcing biatch!!! Sorry if that sounds a little off color, but Asian Women Drivers are the worst drivers on the planet. AND, everyone of my Asian lady friends and there husbands will agree. I gotta move to Texas soon!
