    An [censored] crashed my 997C2 in a parking lot !!!

    I was standing still ... he didn't. End of story.
    His speed was about 20 mph (a little less than 40 km/h).

    14.000 km in 5 months without having any problem with the car (except a front bumper replaced after a "rabbit" encounter) and now this !!!

    I feel like I could kill the guy !

    Damage report: front bumper, signal lights (both the one in the front bumper and the one from the left side), front left fender, left headlight, both left radiators (air con and engine coolant) plus many little plastic parts.

    Repair costs estimated at 6.000 euros (about 8.000 USD).

    The good news ? All the parts will be replaced with new parts, no welding, cutting or anything else similar is required. Basically we are talking about taking something apart and putting it back only using a screwdriver.

    If I could I'd share with you a string of expletives a mile long. @#$%&*! Sorry to see that. Dang! UGH!

    Well at least it doesn't seem to be the serious sort of crash that will wind up on your car's "permnent record" or whatever they call that "carfax" thing.

    SOB!!!! Soooooo sorry to see that!

    Nightmare! Bad luck mate - whereabouts are you? UK? What is that liquid in the first photo?

    I FEEL YOUR PAIN

    THAT SUCKS - Sorry bro....

    Re: An [censored] crashed my 997C2 in a parking lot !!!

    I am located in Romania (we have bad roads so I was so happy for not having any problems with the car for the first 14.000 km - about 9.000 miles I think).

    The liquid is a mix from the green/winter windshield cleaning liquid and engine coolant liquid.

    Re: I FEEL YOUR PAIN

    Check out this nagging detail: make sure they use Porsche coolant to refill system. I hear that is a must.

    Re: An [censored] crashed my 997C2 in a parking lot !!!

    Pentium,

    Wow!! I'm very sorry to hear of (and see) your misfortune. I always dread the thought of something like that happening to one of my pride-and-joys.

    I think you are right to be optimistic about the repair if it is all done with new bolt-on parts. It should be good as new when finished.

    Good luck to you in your later travels.

    Re: An [censored] crashed my 997C2 in a parking lot !!!

    I'm very sorry to hear that, everybody's nightmare, at least you weren't hurt.

    Re: An [censored] crashed my 997C2 in a parking lot !!!

    Wow--sorry to hear (and see) about your accident. Sounds like they'll be able to get it back to good as new.

    Re: An [censored] crashed my 997C2 in a parking lot !!!

    Pentium,
    When I crashed my C4C, there was also that fluo green liquid on the road, I have been told it was brake fluid.
    Is the windshield liquid also green?
    Get your brake checked just in case you know.
    I think they will check it anyway.

    Re: An [censored] crashed my 997C2 in a parking lot !!!

    ...or coolant!

    Re: An [censored] crashed my 997C2 in a parking lot !!!

    My condolences

    Re: An [censored] crashed my 997C2 in a parking lot !!!

    Oh, that sucks ....hopefully all will be just like new soon.
