My IS was parked in my friends driveway. I go out for the night, leavin the car there. Come home the next day, look at my car, and YES....THERE IS A HUGE F*CKING DENT IN THE RIGHT FENDER. Its about the size of 2 basketballs. No note, no nothing. The residents of the house DENIED backing into it, and now i am stuck with nothng but a huge dent. Do you guys have any suggestions, any aftermarket items i should get to replace it? My hood my be off line too. Im pissed.... :pissed: :pissed: :pissed: :pissed: :pissed:

That SUCKS dude!

Did you call the cops and have them investigate it? they could always look at the neighbors cars to see if they have any of your paint, and you theirs.

Knowing how soft the IS paint is, it should have left some on their car if they in fact did it.

I don't know of any aftermarket fenders for the IS at all, sorry I can't help you.

Good luck, and keep us updated!

Parked up a driveway- and a dent that big.... it had to be them backing into ur car and denying it. I'd blame them until sum other krazy explaination is uncovered. Guilty bastards :-?

I don't know about US laws, but in Canada, we can file a "hit & run" report. The only thing we would have to pay is the deductible... and since it's a comprehensive claim, the insurance rate will not be affected. How much do you think are the damages? More than 300$??

Anyhow, good luck!!

Hello ISsard22CU

I am so sorry to hear about your accident. Lest week, some guys shot BB guns at my IS, broke the rear window, took my radar detector, etc. I know how you feel.

You have auto insurance don't you? I hope you do. This is what I did.

I called the police and he did an investigation. That night, i called my insurance company to file a report. The next day, I called Lexus and left my car at the body shop to have it repaired. The body shop would send the info to the insurance company. Since my deduct is 250, I only pay the 250 and the insurance company pays the rest.

If I were you, I would use factory parts and not use after market ones.

Good luck!

dayam chris, that sux bro!! sorry to hear that... at least no one was hurt... and trust me, i know the feeling all too well... its just apart of life... you gotta take the good with the bad... you should see if they can fix your front grille piece under the claim.... and if u have any other pieces that need painting... (engine pieces or eyelids, etc.) get them painted under that claim too.. good luck bro
