OP if it makes you feel any better my father in law let his 911 turbo roll out of the garage into his brick mailbox because he didnt set the parking brake well enough cause he didnt want to "yank on it too hard"
sounds like something a porsche owner would say. hehe

Wow that sucks!! My buddy had the same exact incident with his M3. However my GT350 when I bought it wrecked looked like this one but now its back to 100. Hope you get yours back to 100% soon.

I was hanging out at my Dads house in the early 2000's, my Dad had just bought a Z4 and I guess came inside to read the manual since it had so many features. A while later he's screaming to see which one of us kids (I was an adult) F'd with his car... He forget to set the parking brake, somehow the car got enough momentum from the semi-flat driveway to roll up a few feet of uphill slope, then a few hundred feet down a hill through scrub oak and into his newly installed fishing pond. He ended up getting a body kit which insurance installed and painted for "free".

That situation always sits in my mind, to the point I will wake up and run downstairs to check my parking brake sometimes, it's happened to me for almost 20 years regardless of which manual car I've owned.
Had a VERY similar experience. I'm scarred for life lol.
