I seem to be the unluckiest person I know when it comes to my car. I have always looked after my cars, I drive them very carefully and have never had a crash (yet).

When I finally decided to spend all my money on a half decent car, it seems that it has become a target for vandals.

I have had key scratched down my rear quatre, which I repaired, damage to my bonnet and yesterday I had people throwing large half brick sized stones at my car while it was parked outside my parents.

My brother and I confronted the gang of kids that were throwing them and they denied it. We called the police who got their names and I have reported criminal damage to my car.

My question is, if I wanted the get the dents and scratches fixed that the stones caused, would I have to go through my car insurance, or can I take other options to get it fixed (as I pay council tax etc)

Unlucky fella frown

AFAIK you need to take them to court (If the police think you / they have enough evidence) and get them convicted of it - then you can get them to pay.

Else its go though the insurance, or save no claims and pay out of your own pocket frown

Spoke to a police man, who says, unless someone saw the person throw the stone that hit my car, there isn't an awful lot i can do.

Wish we had battered them now.

I it happens again (hopefully it won't), if you know for certain who it is, you and a friend who bears no family connection to yourself, will see them do it.
