Long-Term Fit Gets Hit
November 29, 2006
Our long-term Honda Fit received its first battle scars in the war called Driving in LA. This morning as I was turning right into a Chevron station, a BMW 5 Series sedan ('97-'03 generation) nipped our hatchback's right rear corner. Mr. Bimmer was making a right on red from the side street adjacent to the gas station and evidently was in too much of a hurry to wait for the Fit to complete the turn...
He was also in too much of a hurry to pull over and exchange information, so now he's got a hit-and-run riding on his conscience.
I didn't get a plate number, but you can tell from the scrape on our Fit Sport's lower skirt that the 5 Series had dark blue paint.
