This is the issue i was getting at. The less fitted the cover is the more likely scratches are.

i used a car cover on my previous focus as i had to park it outdoors and it never left scratches over 9 years of use.... just make sure it's installed properly.

ralck So an update to my story...

I was able to contact my neighbor and she actually offered to help pay to fix the damage. She was very sweet and even told me about a small scratch she put in my side mirror that I didn't notice.

Anywho, I took it to Mac's II body shop (located on Town-Line road for the Rochester folk) and 10 minutes later they had polished away all but one tiny little spot! You can't even see that spot unless you know where to look.
They gave me a quote for the side mirror, and even said I might as well try a touch up pen first to see if I'm happy with that.

So all worked out in the end. I actually feel bad at the thread title now; everyone involved (including my neighbor) has been so kind to me and so helpful in getting the car looking showroom new again.

And for anyone in the Rochester area, I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Mac's II shop. They were very helpful, super quick, and really friendly there! Check them out!

ralck Do I expect them to admit it? Probably not, but they do seem like a nice older couple, so maybe they have some integrity, unlike most of my generation. If nothing else, maybe it will remind them to be a little more careful in the garage and nothing worse will happen.

When it comes down to it, it's not _that_ bad of a blemish, it's just right in the center of the door! And I didn't think I would have a scratch on the car this quickly since I'm not driving it during Rochester's salt season.

Some people redefine "jerk" to a new level as well.

A few weeks ago, I parked out at the end of a store's lot, everybody else was parked by the main door. Some jackwipe almost sideswiped me to get the primo parking spot I hadn't seen, so I thought I'd park more distant...

When I got back to the car, another car had parked next to mine. Their driver side was facing mine and the distance between both cars was about 2 feet.

I didn't see any signs of damage, and I took great pains to open my door without hitting theirs... but there could be scratches I'd not seen. The chances of Twiggy being the other car's owner and parking there just to psychologically twist me are slim, though it's possible that's all there was - a mindgame with no intent to cause physical damage...

But, then or now, there are always going to be unevolved jackholes... it's disgusting, but unless you leave a note, that reads:

"Please be conscientious of others."

then they're not going to care. Regardless of how polite or how twisted one could write in.

And the first scratch is always the most grating on our nerves anyway...

But, yeah, a lot of jackholes out there just don't give a damn out there, then they wonder why society is going to pieces... DUH...
