This is why we can't have nice things

That really sucks. In my more than several decades on this planet, I've learned that there are a lot of very sick people out there, who will always continue to do bad things. Sadly, we have to constantly protect ourselves, families, and loved ones (and our things) at all times. Do you think the roof will pop out? I'm sure it will have to be re-painted. Will your comprehensive insurance cover it? Good luck.

I pushed up on the headliner and got most of it but there are still a few dings that will either require PDR or removing the headliner to bang them out. I'm not worried about paint because it's not very good to begin with, but I'm just heartbroken to see this happen right before replacing the nose and fender and having a presentable '02.

That so sucks!

When you get it repaired, make sure the body people know about the faint lines in the roof. My car had hail damage repaired and the lines no longer existed. That's why I ended up clipping on a new roof.

Maybe show the body shop a nice car so they know what it's supposed to look like.

I am afraid to ask, but where exactly was the car parked? Any idea of exactly how the damage was caused? Negligence or vandalism? Did someone jump on the roof or was something dropped?

Had someone stand on my hood. A good samaritan told me about it, claimed a drunk was trying to coax a cat down from a nearby tree. Didn't make me feel any better (there was a tree several 100 feet away from the car) and I replaced the hood.

If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

Nope, 2AM Club.

gawd that sucks. the 2AM Club is notorious. my nephew got the snot beat out of him once after leaving during closing time. guy was an ex-marine too, but had a few too many. no reason to pick a fight though. it was several punks against one drunk nice guy.

as Marin is further gentrified, i suppose the bored, spoiled rich kids have to act like hoodlums to try to 'fit in'.

this is an action worthy of Caning. Indonesia has it right.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
