C&G Curse?

8 posts in this topic

I got out of my house this morning to discover my car was hit and run. The driver's side of the car was sideswiped from behind, leaving a gash along the rear door, quarter panel, rear bumper, and rear wheel. More worryingly, though, is that the alignment is off; the poor thing now veers right. :(

The Passat has a twist-beam rear axle, and I'm guessing the beam is bent. There really aren't any rear alignment settings for it (I just had the car aligned a few weeks ago, along with new rear shocks).

Anyone know if a rear beam can be knocked back to spec, or am I looking at a new axle? I don't have collision insurance coverage on it.

You have to be kidding me. That sucks dude. Is this in PV? Prolly a drunk driver, if so. What paint colors were left?

No, at Oxy. Must have been some drunk students after yesterday's football game. The only colors I see are white on sheetmetal and black on the wheels, presumably from their tires. Unbelievable how irresponsible some people are, ugh.

Boo. Well, I don't know how big Oxy is, or how dense the student housing areas are, but did you report it? Might be able to track whoever down, though it's a long shot.

Ugh, yeah.:angry:

About the white marks: clearcoat appears white when it is disturbed. Are you sure it is actually white paint, or is it possibly just clearcoat residue that has accumulated from the scrape?
