Someone keyed my MKZ 2011
So a maddening thing happened today. But my story goes back a couple weeks ago. I park on the street and usually I have no problems but one day (3 weeks ago) some Chinese guy asked me to move my car since he has a "big" car (Lexus RX) and I said why? He got mad for questioning him and cursed at me and spoke a bunch of Chinese mumble jumble. The next day he spray painted neon green paint on the sides of the end of driveway on the curb, but some of the spray got on my chrome wheels. I confronted him about it and he said he did spray the paint but refused to pay to get it off and it cost me $60 to get it detailed. Yesterday I parked about a block away but on the same street to avoid the Chinese d bag. I wake up this morning to check on my car and I see hug key marks all over the car. Literally there isn't a panel that isn't damaged besides the hood and bumpers. I am furious at this point and I slam on his door and confront him and he says he has nothing to do with it and I can't prove anything and you know what? The sad part is the stupid Chinese man is right. No cameras around and no one saw anything, so legally nothing I can do.
I guess this is where the semi happy news comes in. Since this was considered vandalism my insurance covered everything besides my $250 deductible and since almost every panel was touched and because they want to properly match the paint they are repainting the whole outside of the car. As I mentioned in the previous post my rear bumper and front bumper had some touch up fixes down which came put sub par at best since it's almost impossible to replicate tri coat paint on touch up kits and because the plastic bumpers had become discolored. So the good news is my bumpers will actually match the rest of the paint and I am getting a freshly painted car. The estimate came to $5300, but thank god for insurance. Does this sound right for tri coat paint?
