Just got vandalised!

Need some help guys, some MF just vandalised the boot lid of my spider,

Ripped out the rear badge and some damged to the paint and underneath,, al that is left is a bent bolt sticking out the hole

(No picture as yet) was just getting ready for auto italia on sunday,

The bolt seems to be maybe where the badge would screw into,

Can anyone help me with a picture of the rear replacement badge and maybe workshop manual so i can work out how to repair it,

As yu can understand, i want to kill them,,,

Man, so sorry to hear! What worthless pile of shit could do this? Any CCTV in the area? Don't the AFP do death squads? If you find him you could always sew a few drugs into his pocket linings and send him on a flight to Indonesia or the Philippines (they do there). Seriously, I hope you get it rectified asap and it becomes just an unpleasant memory.

That absolutely sucks. And those people who do that are absolute scumbags. Rest assured though that he is somehow paying for it, because his life is clearly shit and he damaging other people's property makes him feel better about his own pointless worthless existence.

I had someone crash into my Z4M and drive off whilst it was parked and another bastard keyed my M3 front to back all the way to the metal.

Living in a city, unfortunately, you're surrounded by twats and it's almost inevitable someone will fk with your stuff. You just gotta repair it, try not to think about it too much and move on.

And if you ever see someone doing that to another car, as a matter of courtesy, smash his teeth in.

Damage you described doesn't seem too bad though.

A bodyshop should be able to sort it in less than a day. Just gotta find a badge and I'm sure dealers will have them in stock.

Here's a pic of the rear end. Sorry can't get a better pic as my car is pretty far from where I am at the moment. I'm sure someone else will come through with a better image.

I just tried turning the bent bolt,, it spins freely,

Meaning that the new badge will have a bolt attached, and affixed with 3m with a nut that will have to be held secure after undoing the felt covering the boot lid, no doubt,

Not being a sook, but, screw me,,not what you need a day before showing...

Hi Ivan, I'm really sorry about the damage to your beautiful car. Such idiots... Where did it happen?

Did you try asking the guys at Gulson for help? They should be around on Saturday.

I hope to see you at Auto Italia. I won't be showing my 4c this year as I'll only be able to come in for an hour or so, with my 3.5 years old son. He saw your car outside the Fyshwick markets last weekend and loved the colour...
