Damn hit and runs... :(

Happened in my work parking lot, didn't notice until i came down to get lunch...



Oh and my alternator decided at the same time that it was too cool to hang out with the rest of the motor...



Today sucks a bit...

Does the parking lot have cameras? If so get the tapes and nail that asshole.

So that alternator left the party at the same time your car was hit? Or were they unrelated?

No cameras, just eye witnesses.

Unrelated I would assume based off of where I was hit, but it has been so could that you would never know...

F*CKING idiot.

A hit and run is about the lowest you can go. At least man up to it. Good luck in getting it all sorted out.

Threads like this always make me want to install something like this in my car. Then I could catch any idiot who hurt my baby.

Its bad no matter the extent of the damage. Contacted the insurance though so hopefully they pay to fix it.
