    My new Carrera is keyed

    hi all to share the sad news.. my brand new carrera S got keyed today by a somebody with lots of hate and no soul.
    ANy idea how to remedy the long scratch !!

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    In Dubai? What?? Feel very sorry for you, very angry at this cowardly behaviour and shocked that it's happening in a relatively crime-free place like Dubai where luxury cars are ubiquitous.

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    woops!

    I typed something I thought would be [censored] but it wasnt [censored] so I had to edit it before anyone saw.


    That was [censored] close

    How annoying - you will just have to go and get it repaired - what else can you do?

    So sorry to hear of your misfortune. these mindless idiots seem to exist everywhere.

    If the scratch is long AND deep it looks like a bodyshop job. It's really the only way to get a totally invisible repair. Hopefully your insurance will cover it.

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    Sorry to hear the sad news. FWIW, I think I'll probably put a NRA sticker on my window. That should scare off any UAW members here in Michigan from damaging mine once it arrives.

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    Thanks all,
    amir you are in dubai.. you have 997 ? which one? are you a P. club UAE member?

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    That really annoys me - deepest sympathies - I've had many teenagers walk past here in Dubai saying "nice car" - and had felt this was a low risk place ......do you mind saying where it happened ?

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    suuuucks. But sounds about right. Didn't the dealer tell you? This car comes with an invisible "Vandalize Me" sign attached to it?

    I only have a couple of places where I park my car with ease. Everywhere else I figure it's gonna get *ucked sooner or later.

    Just think of it as parking an expensive and unique show car: lot's of potential aholes will quite casually ruin it for you IF IF IF they think they can get away with it.

    In public areas always park in a conspicuous place if possible.

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    Hi spinder.. in al wassel road .. in front of my dentist clinic !!

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    yikes ......not far from my home !

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    All I can say is...

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    hey jimmy,
    yup im in dubai and noi dont have a 997, i have a 987s and on the list for a 997t.
    2) i dont know if im a member of the U.A.E club, they sent me letter saying that i had 1 years worth of complimentary membership and thats as much as i know. :-(

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    Sympathies on this unfortunate event.

    I say locate the person(s) responsible through recorded satellite imagery and have the bastage(s) ELIMINATED.

    The world doesn't need any respawn of that scum.

    Best of luck, hope you get it repaired in short order!

    I like the NRA sticker idea!

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    Jealousy is a cruel mistress - From the mouth of Clarkson himself.

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    Oh wells. I've resigned to the fact that my 997s will eventually get keyed. Every car i've had here has been keyed. So i'm bracing for that day.

    And remember, its only a scratch. Won't affect the performance or the overala beauty of a 911 in motion.

    jimy,

    Very sorry to hear about your baby! I hope it's fixed as good as new very soon! And I hope the pond scum who did it gets their comeuppance!

    I hope you're able to celebrate your special day! Happy Birthday!

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    Don't they cut your hand off for keying a car there?

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    ha ha ha ha ... you made my day -- flap... cut hand .. I wish but not true....

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    Sorry to hear this bad news. I have just got my car back from the body shop today after it was jumped over a couple of weeks ago.

    Re: My new Carrera is keyed

    Jimy,

    Sorry to hear your news....That's so weird that it happened in Dubai! I lived there for around 4 years (left in 03) and never heard of any kind of car crimes. I guess that's one of the growing pains associated with growing into a commercial city.

    Shame, I feel Dubai has lost so much of it's charm in the last few years. Too many people, too much traffic, too much polution and not enough time to relax with your friends and family.

    I'm still there a lot, but it's certainly not the tranquil, secret gem it once was.
