    I have 2 door dings as well. I don't hate those folks for that though. I assume those were not malicious.

    Thankfully, I can't see it from the driver's seat.

    I would retrace your steps with the car for 2 days and have a couple leg breakers (such as, Paulie and Carmine) keep an eye from a distance. Idiots tend to repeat behaviors. :D

    This angers me. The scumbag who did this is a miserable POS who deserves all the unhappiness in life.

    This is one of the reasons I ordered a new Roma. It doesn't look like an exotic car. I spec'd: Titanio (silver) no shields, aluminum brake calipers and cf wheel centers. Should be about as stealthy a Ferrari as you can get. Certainly more so than my Scud.

    Doesn’t cost that much to have the back re-sprayed. I had the front done a couple of years ago and have never been able to tell any difference. Good luck.

    This. Full PPF has helped me sleep easier at night. Well worth the cost.

    I once had a Corvette parked on the street with a car cover. Someone walked by the car, lifted the car cover and keyed the entire passenger side. It sucks. Sorry you had to experience it.

    That totally sucks. I once had someone write with their finger "Wash Me" on the hood of my car so hard that it left a shadow that I could barely buff out....I could still see it years later.

    I would have the scratch fixed (either fix it myself or get a local touch-up/dent guy do the work) as it would piss me off every time I looked at the scratch. Life's too short to be continually aggravated by this petty act of vandalism -- fix it, forget it, and enjoy the car.

    Sux and have been there. My X1/9 was keyed after it had just been repainted while I was in college.

    When the asteroid hits, or the Yellowstone supervolacno erupts, I won't like it any more than anyone else. I can never say, though, that we don't deserve it.

    With exceptionally rare exceptions, humans are bad. That's my rule number one. Rule number two is a variant of PT Barnum's quote - you'll never be wrong to underestimate how bad they'll get, especially when money is involved. Rule number three is humans can rationalize that whatever crappy thing they did was actually OK and the best they could do...

    Jealousy-it’s inherent in our way of life today- we have more than ever in our society today- and people are even more jealous of what they don’t have.
    It’s why you’ll never catch me at Ferraris Annual Experience big event in Portland Oregon this year. Can they be serious about staging an event like that at ground zero for lawlessness and daily riots? In their most recent emails about it they claim it’s outside downtown Portland and they’ve hired security - like a guard is going to put his life on the line to protect your precious vehicles. Yeah, and I’ve got Enzo calling me on the other line.
    Stay safe everyone in these crazed times.

    Can someone please explain this to me...

    Why do people hate the rich and yet are trying very hard to get rich themselves???
    or Why do they mock the rich for buying things that they can't afford and yet keep buying lottery tickets week after week???

    That attitude is why I sold my Fcars. Unwanted notoriety and the attitude of what the OP experienced.

    When I’m asked about the cars now I say you can drive them anywhere-you just can’t park them anywhere.

    sorry for your bad experience, I would try to polish it out. Good therapy even if it hides it a little.

    On a related note, would it be possible to have a 360 camera (ie. a gopro 360) that you switch on and leave on the dashboard whenever you park the car outside and if there's no damage when you get back you erase the footage, if there's damage you have proof of the crime? Has anyone thought of such a setup?

    I don’t think the people who hate the rich are trying very hard to get rich.
