THIS:

Upon looking for damage found this.



I'm guessing a shopping bugging did this, what would this cost to fix? It's deep.

Went into two store to see if there are outside cameras they claimed no.

Update:
Lowes hardware, SAMs clubs, Radio Shack, old Navy, Rue 21, Ross Stores, and a bunch of randoms in the shopping center. Only SAMs and Lowes have cameras and I've been told by the police that they won't pan that far, it's just a blur toward my car.

Guess I'll just contact my insurance, or suck it up and cut into my exhaust savings and wheels savings.

Words of the Police officer: "life sucks some times man"

Call your insurance company and see what this would be covered under. However, it looks like the damage is contained to one fender so I would guess the repair would be less than $1,000. And that's if you replace the entire fender rather than filling the dents on the damaged one.

There is a 99% chance the place has cameras unless its a no name place, but if its a big box chain, they have cameras, dont let them tell you otherwise.

Contact the police. Have them retrieve the video surveillance for the parking lot. Find the license plate of the car they got into. Get the ****ers.

It's probably more than $500 in repairs.. Contact the police and file a report. Date/time of incident so they can possibly retrieve security video from the store's parking lot. Hope you catch the perpetrator.

That sucks not matter how it's resolved though.
Good luck.

Serioulsly tho. I don't care how sorry they are or about the fact they can't afford to fix the damage they've caused. that's no reason to shift that burden unto you.

keep the note. it's evidence.

They only checked SAMs club cameras, and that was no good, this sucks.

Condolences on your loss. Just goes to prove that you can drive a nice car, you just cannot park it anyplace. Even parking way out in the boonies of the parking lot won't save you sometimes.
Don't count on the police or CSI to get the perp - they really do have bigger fish to fry - but, your insurance may require you to at least have a police report number.
Good luck.
