    Quickly glancing at the photo, it looks like there’s a chunk of bumper missing.

    Yikes. I’d say the odds were pretty low for it to happen given how little you drive it.

    Idiots work fast.. clearly. Your Hyundai will be forever untouched. You could probably take it through a brush car wash and leave without a single swirl but you take the Stang out and someone swipes it.

    For sure. Lots of “other ones” around here. I’ve never been around so many people that just don’t care about personal property or responsibility if they damage it. I miss Myrtle Beach daily in that respect.

    I’ve still had similar stuff happen back home but generally people are more cautious and courteous if they knowingly break your crap.

    My previous car was a Subaru Tribeca. Parked it out of the way at a mall. Some asshat keyed it so hard he/she creased the metal

    So parking out of the way is good, but not asshat proof

    Well if it helps...

    Yesterday someone fcuking keyed my car. Intentionally and for no reason other than they think it amusing.
    I was in a new city, staying in hotel overnight and woke up to my car having been keyed.

    I've gotten used to dropping people off at the doors, and then parking in a galaxy far, far away.

    I get some good points with other people for dropping off and picking up my crotchety, aged mother that way.

    Honestly, I'm not much of a fan of having a brush guard on a car, but if it'll help keep people away, it might be worth it.

    Sucks that this happens but such is life i guess. I was at a stop light Friday and some dude took his foot off his brake and rolled into the back of my 3 week old 2019. Don't even have a 1000 miles on it. The license plate holder on his F150 left some scratches and 2 grooves in my back bumper right around the license plate. I was livid. To make matters worse, he tried to blame it on my by saying I rolled back into him. Now i'm stuck dealing with insurance stuff, the insurance info he gave me and my insurance company is bogus so I've got a 3 week old car with cosmetic scars on the back bumper and am looking at going out of pocket if less than deductible or using my own insurance to get the car fixed cuz people suck.

    Stories like this make me want to get all the dash cams covering every bit of my car. More and more, people are only ever nice if someone else is watching or it's convenient to their selfish asses. And I'm more and more glad I don't have kids to try and make it through this place when I'm gone because I only see it getting worse.

    Yeah! Shitty part is the Mustang is my 2nd car so not daily driven. I hadnt got a dash cam for it yet. My wife's car and my truck both have dash cams. I just ordered a front/back system from Amazon. Going to have to figure out if I want to hardwire it to the fuse box or if the rear view mirror will be able to support both the camera and my V1.

    Wait... Hold up.. What do you mean if the mirror will support it? Are there connections exposed or are you talking cutting and splicing?

    I used one of these to tap into the wires running into the mirror.
    https://www.amazon.com/Radar-Mount-...dar+detector+mirror+tap&qid=1571069274&sr=8-4

    They make similar one's for dash cams too so trying to see if I can run another one to tap the dash cam from there too.
