I too treat my ride like its the most precious thing to happen .. Sit and shed tears when i hit her somewhere at the same time feel like shooting the person who scrathes or hurts her in between the legs .. Off lately have seen a lot of scrathes on the right rear door , bonnet and the dicky .. Wonder why these filthy morons cant keep their hands off others property .. Wish i could get my hands on them ..

Scratches are a part of a cars life. You can't be driving your car everywhere without having a few bumps/scratches. I just accept it the way it is. You could protect your car to a certain extent but you can't prevent it from happening.

The white Vtec Adit picked up from here didn't have any scratches on it but, that car was hardly driven within city limits and would rarely be used (spending most of it's life under covers). But, thats not what a car is supposed to do, is it?

I try and protect my car from scratches but if they happen, they happen.

inch deep??

if sheet/base is visible then it needs serious repairs or if it is just skin deep, say, only clear coat and color seems to get damaged then it might be reduced with a rubbing/polishing effort!

if possible show us the scratch so that something better can be suggested.

The best policy is to act as if nothing happened and quietly repair the damage at your next service (maybe a paint touch-up job for the big, deep scratches). If you make a big noise, you will only attract more mischief about which you can do nothing. The security people cannot watch your vehicle all the time.

I learnt my lesson the hard way. Once while in Mumbai, a fruit vendor's cart came within two inches of my parked Santro. I reacted -- a fatal error. I told him to be careful, not to scratch my paint, and then went away. When I came back I found two deep scratches in the paint above the front wheel, and the fruit vendor nowhere in sight. Should have just kept quiet, and I would have saved my car from these scratches. These characters are perverse and illogical and you have to understand their perverted, illogical minds when you deal with them.

Precisely, I like your outlook. These things are out of your control and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Even if you nab the rogue, you can't touch him or do a damn thing to him other than filling a police complaint. Even there, the Cops will just warn the b*****d and tell you as they do in Bangalore " SWALPA ADJUST MADI , SAAR " ( Please Adjust a little, sir). Even the law doesn't help you.

My new black Victa had been scored with a pointed Cricket Stump from front bumper top rear bumper. That too on both side. I fretted, fumed and cried but all this inflicted more injury to myself. In the end it did nothing but more harm. So just forget everything and pray that their tribe doesn't survive for long.

So long....

Sometimes it is intentional, sometimes small kids playing in the gali make scratches for no reason. They simply like it! Its easy, grab a sharp stone and start writing your name and done! These scratches are not apparent on colors like silver but black! You can read the written name from 10 meters! I have seen many such incidences but I am yet to encounter a severe, intentional attempt.
