    Some fuckface decided to change lanes into me with no turn signal or even bothering to look to his right to see if there was a car right next to them, then they have the audacity to brake hard after the collision and disappear into the car crowd.

    I pull off on the first right I get

    No one shows up

    The damage isn't too bad, just paint, pretty lucky considering they almost forced me off a bridge which would've killed me.

    But as someone who spends 3+ hours every car wash meticulously detailing/polishing/sealing/waxing on my almost completely untouched paint this has me ****** up.

    Yea yea it's not a big deal and I might even be able to repair it to a much better level but dammit if it isn't a huge inconvenience.

    And to top it off it was another 9th gen civic that hit me

    u got any dash cam installed? or did u remember the license plate? These A hole should get penalized.
    another reason why i need to get the dash cam installed soon.
    Someone just did a similar fashion to me on this labor day weekend. i noticed there was a bimmer on my left in the two lane north bound highway. His bimmer has been very close to me for about 2 miles. All of a sudden, he's revving his engine, rpm up, and cutting in front of me with only half car length space in order to overtake the car in front of him. I was aware of this entire situation and slowing down immediately while he's cutting.

    That sucks man. From the pictures I don't see any dents so hopefully it will buff out with a little work.

    Sucks.....did the two cars just rub mirrors?

    The mirror should buff out but you could just buy a mirror cover if it doesn't turn out to your standards. The front looks like a bug splat. Not sure how you don't have any other damage on the bumper if the 2 cars actually touched.

    Jokes aside, that'll buff right out.

    Meguiars ultimate compound + meguiars ultimate polish

    Did it by hand, it doesn't look perfect but the untrained eye can't tell.

    Basically you clay it, then apply the compound, do 6 passes, spray with detailer then wipe it off with a microfiber, then apply polish 6 passes, rinse, wipe, then seal/wax
