    Gutted m8.

    There really are some numpties around that simply shouldn't be driving, and as for parking well... No way.

    Hope you can get it repaired and it don't cost too much.

    If im parking parralell to a kerb, I always angle my mirrors downwards so I can see where my wheels are going and to avoid scraping them.

    I always park right at the back of a car park well away from other cars, If Im forced to park near cars I look out for babey seats in cars, there bound to dink your door. As for your alloys, our lass, has scrapped mine loads of times, nothing you can do, I just touch em up until there ready for refurbing again

    yeah but it looks like poo, and isn't the main reason we are concerned about damage to bump strips/doors because we want our cars to stay looking good?

    That's just one of those rubber cable strips.

    I give up trying to keep the car ding free. Tesco's car park, bloody 10 acres of tarmac - I park in the middle of nowhere, come out and there's some **** in an Escort or some other shitter parked right against me. I mean, there's 60,000 other spaces, why the **** do you have to park right against me?!?
