    Some inconsiderate, low life idiot hit/rubbed/scraped my Hellcat last night while walking at the park.

    Parked it in a wide, lit parking spot and come back to damage on the driver side front fender. The pic below is better than what it looked like when I first saw it. The transfer pant and dirt rubbed off pretty easy, giving CQF credit for that part.

    Only good thing is there's a small effect from the factory on the front bumper that I'll get fixed if the body shop has to repaint the whole front clip.

    The scratches are more like gauge marks so doubt they can be repaired. And yes I will fit tooth and nail to make sure I get OEM bumper if it comes to that.

    A*@hole probably knew I'd kill/mutilate them if they had stuck around. But still, they should of took their beating for being an idiot.

    Already had to replace the driver & passenger side windows due to scratches, luckily FCA is replacing those, and now this. There's a medical emergency in my near future if anything else happens.:(:mad:

    mine made it 4 hours from purchase into a ditch...only very minor front spoiler damage, but ended up tearing off front bumper and a whole new bumper was needed ($3000 in damage)

    dont feel too bad....its just one of those things....its going to happen to all of them......accept it, get it fixed and forget about it....i have forgotten about my accident

    Look right at bottom of the reflection of my hand. Looks like a bunch of scuff marks but some are gauges. Again looked A LOT worse before I rubbed the paint transfer off.

    I feel ya. Something jumped up and hit me while I was cruising on the highway. The sound of whatever it was hitting my door made me sick.

    Really sorry to hear that! I never park my (illustrious/attention grabbing) cars in public places or lots....unless it is a DD. As a matter of fact, the only time I ever leave such cars like the HC unattended, is when it's safely parked inside my garage! That's how ocd and probably paranoid I am.

    Secondly i am very sorry to say, but there are some really sick individuals out there who get sadistic pleasures by intentionally harming beautiful things/objects(and even people). Values, morals and ethics are not as strong in today's world, like they once used to be. Past/unfortunate experiences have forced me to adopt this ultra conservative approach.

    Hope you can quickly turn this around and restore the cat to it's full glory. All the best. Cheers!

    OMG ... I am so sorry! Good thing whoever did that was smart enough to get the HellCat outta there before you caught them! I hope that it will not be too costly to repair!
