Assuming all of the previous assumptions could possibly be true, I have one just question. How, under what circumstance, does damaging a customer's property put the dealer in the right? The dealer's defenders are acting as if the dealer has been wronged.

What if the OP took a sledgehammer to a car in the showroom and then offered to fix it himself? No harm, no foul, right? The dealership should gladly take that deal right? I should also assume the dealer wouldn't claim diminished value when he sold this car at a reduced cost, right?
I didn't say the dealer is in the right. If the car was damaged under their care, they should bear 100% of the costs to restore it to the condition it was in before the accident.

By the way, if say the OP took a sledgehammer to the car in the showroom he should be prosecuted. That's malicious.
