So I'm washing my Comp Rosso beauty and I get around to the rear passenger side and I notice that a hole has been tapped out of my tail light !!! I'm *ucking FURIOUS !!! The car is securely parked at work and this is clearly an act of vandalism.....:mad:

How can someone actually do that to such a beautiful car? I don't have a word to describe how I feel about people like that.

Get it fixed and show everyone it didn't faze you.

I'm sorry you have to go through this.

Grrrrr! Total @$$ holes. Do you have comprehensive by any chance? You wanna know how bad jealous and road raged drivers get? Someone stole my Ovarian Cancer ribbon magnet off the back of my Miata when I was parked at Back Bay garage for a meeting last year (my wife died form the disease). MAYBE I beat them to an opening on the expressway crawl earlier that morning? Completely safe, small and quick beats large and lumbering every time. Maybe they parked in the same garage? Or maybe they were just walking by? But who in their right mind steals a cancer awareness magnet off of someone else's car? I mean, MAYBE the car belongs to a surviving loved one? Maybe, ya think? Cruel and selfishly ugly. Hope your insurance covers it.

Death sentence!

Jealous fiend probably drives an old Prius, Accord, Corolla, pickup truck, or Mustang. Yes, I'm profiling. Please feel free to add your theories.

You dont want to make a small claim like that on a policy...will cost you more in the future...not to mention the tailight is likely to cost less than his deductible...

Yeah good point. I wasn't sure. It's not a bumper thank God.

So after my anger and frustration settled down, I carefully vacuumed out the water and broken lens fragments (it's the size of a golf ball) and used some clear tape to make sure no more water would enter the lens...I'm sure this corner lamp assembly will approach $1,000 if not more....I know that sounds crazy but it's LED and all that and so manufacturers can shoot for the sky....I'm going to inquire about cameras....the building that I practice out of has a curious demographic....there are many "therapists" in the building (both Psychologists and Psychiatrists)...Maybe just a depressed whacky soul...The other possibility...there is one other Dentist who is on an upper floor...Jealousy rearing its head perhaps (he drives a Ford Explorer)....:mad:

I'm so sorry to hear - some people can be so stupid. Hopefully the cameras will be able to catch the license plate of the vehicle that hit you or the person who did this!

I have not seen the mounting mechanism for the giulia tail lights, but on 90 percent of vehicles you could swap it out yourself in 10 minuets..
