unfortunately "YES". That sucks on a new BMW. People suck.
I think a good dent removal place can fix it for sure.

BB or a pellet gun. With that sized dent, I'd say it was a pellet gun. BBs, i think, are very small and plastic. Pellets are a type of metal.

Hope you were able to notify the police and let them know where it happened

BBs are metal and can produce that dent depending on the power of the gun.

+1

I dread going to Tysons Corner during summer break, spring break, and the holidays. I steer clear and/or go really early.

Something similar happened to me in my previous car. 99% of the time it is teenagers with nothing to do.

In the age were BBs were also made of plastic. But since someone posted above, I do recall BBs also being made of metal as well.
