2009 Nissan 370Z: Damage Update

September 09, 2009


We reported a few weeks ago that our Nissan 370Z was clipped by a parallel parker with perpendicular depth perception. A hectic schedule meant we had to live with these blemishes for several weeks. But no longer. We made an appointment at our local body shop and soon the Z will be looking good as new.

Little scuffs like this are a fact of life. It isn't uncommon for folks to wait months before repairing similar damage to their cars. Others never repair body damage.

Now, thanks to the anonymity of the internet it's your chance to confess. Are you the driver that must always have a pristine ride? Or are you the driver that considers cosmetic details trivial, allowing dings and dents to multiply unchecked?
