I think you did the right thing. She's going to suffer as a result of this and I'm sure she will learn her lesson. No need to go for a scorched earth strategy.

Compensating a heavy car with horsepower is like giving an alcoholic cocaine to sober him up...

You handled it right. Getting dragged down to her level would have made things bad for you as well. Once you get your car back you can sit back and enjoy the freedom she just lost. If your lucky, she'll be on the bus and see you pull up next to her at a stop light.

I'm not quite understanding some of the posts here when they read, "...she'll suffer," or "...her life is over," or "...her freedom is lost." Here are the facts: She is hardly going to suffer. What is a DUI in the whole scheme of what the OP has to go through? Nothing! The DUI is going to be nothing more than a slap on the wrist and considering both the video footage and what the OP stated happened, a scumbag like this woman won't abide by any restriction placed on her anyway. What, a license suspension and a fine? Gimme a break. She's not going to prison because of it.
OP, I'm not saying that you should have handled it any differently than you did, but forget about this woman ever getting her Just Deserts from the legal system.

I learned that lots of people drive with suspended licenses as the result of DUI convictions. Losing the license won't stop these shitbags from driving again which is why you should have thrown the book at her. Jail time is the only way.

Poor Car

Back in 1998 I had a new C5 Vette. Some drunk ran a light and f&*%d up the passenger side. I was sick, and even though they did a good job on the repair the car never felt the same to me.

I can't believe you're not using the rights that the government has spent so many time on creating. It's downright illegal to punch someone, drive drunk, and destroy other peoples property.

You did good not to hit her.. you only would've lowered yourself to her level but you should really let her pay for what she did. You can't make it worse for her and you shouldn't... but you SHOULD make her pay for the things she did.

I say:
Press charges for assault
Press charges for destruction of property (she kicked your car)
File a civil lawsuit

And Im a 4th year lawstudent... I'm in Holland so not fermiliar with American law but still.

Well I appreciate that you're enthusiastic about your M3 but saying that what OP is going through is worse than what the idiotic woman is going through is just plain ignorant. You seriously feel like being in the legal mangle is better than having your car damaged?

I mean come on.

Alex,
Any pictures of the damages from the kicking incident? I hope everything gets worked out with your car.

And for those of you that keep asking but don't want to read the thread, no she was not hot.

ARE YOU INSANE? To make a comparison between culprit and victim regarding the situation is definitely ignorant. As if the OP should be thankful he's only got to deal with a smashed in M3 because "at least he's not mixed up with the legal system?" Who cares what she has to go through? She made the catastrophic choice to get wasted, drive, smash into a car and pull a get-a-way. The OP did nothing to deserve what happened to him.

+1, lol... shit, +7,533,986... WTF did Alex do to deserve to have all this go down besides needing a sugar fix from 7-11? dumbest most ignorant post i've read in a long time, lol... either you know the Mercedes driver personally or you know that the OP forced her to get shit faced, smash his car, and then attempted to flee... oh and he forced her to kick the living crap out of his car on top of all that... only two reasons I can give where you can draw the conclusion that what she is going through is worst than the OP's, lol...

using your mentality I guess a pedophile has got it worse than the lil girl he molested too, hunhh? at least she gets to go home, right?

I need a smiley where he's smacking his forehead...

You need to make sure you press charges for battery. It is unacceptable that she would do it. You were lucky that she was twice as small but what if it had been an older woman or elderly person?

You need to establish a pattern, if every person lets her off then the state will have no idea that she is as big a nuisance to society as she really is.

Crazy story man....glad to hear you're OK and that it wasn't some psychotic maniac with a weapon.
This is not a laughing matter, but my thought exactly on if she was hot. I guess we all have a bit of TMZ in us. LOL

Seriously though, glad to hear you weren't hurt and were able to track her down, as well. You acted much cooler than I would imagine I could have been after her refusal to cooperate with you, etc.

GL getting everything resolved in a timely manner.
