I waited an extra hour at work and thankfully missed it! There was a collection at home saved from when it hit - in Rye.

That was me! I wrote about it entitled "Damn Hail". 180+ dents.

I just got my M3 back recently. Too many dents for PDR. They replaced the hood (aluminum and too difficult to get all the dents out), roof and trunk. Looks good.

Bottom Line: I live in fear of hail now but glad to have my car back. Insurance paid for everything and then some. Sadly the vehicle now has a CarFax record but what can you do.

OP: Good Luck, I'm sorry to hear of your pain but hopefully the PDR Guy can help!

Oh Man, I was hoping to NOT see a thread like this. They were coming down like golf balls for some time.

My dealer (Hassel) didnt waste any time releasing an ad for their body shop services.

There was a hail storm once here while my car was outside. Even though the claim is a comp, and your current insurer cant increase rates...the next insurance will raise your rates. So stay insured with whom you're with for a while.

Yeah, that was a bad storm and a lot of cars got damaged. I know of a few people who's windshields were also broken because of golf ball sized hail. It comes so fast and without warning, so you don't have enough time to find shelter.
