Default My 2018 Macan S damaged by a vintage Caddy

At a Concours during set up early yesterday morning, a 59 Cadillac Biarritz convertible rolled backwards off its trailer and struck the drivers side rear panel of my Macan. The impact drove the passenger side rear rim into the concrete curb hard enough to damage the curb. I havenít gotten the repair estimate yet but with cosmetic and suspension damage I guess it will be a long and expensive repair. Ordered my 2020 Macan S, my third Macan S since May of 2014, today...

Stay tuned...

Too bad!

Did the owner of the Caddy accept responsibility & you have his insurance info?

You will want a diminished value claim as well.

Iím trying to figure out posting the pics. Insurance is alerted, we had police at this event and they got all the necessary info and Iím also on to the diminished value claim. Could have been much worse with a 2 and a half ton missile on the loose gathering speed as it continued down the street. I think I ďtook one for the teamĒ...for sure it could have been catastrophic had it hit someone instead of my Macan. The owner was apparently there but neglected to say anything to me personally. Iím not sure what to make of that but I have an opinion Iíll keep to myself 😬

The caddy shoved the Macan against the curb so the wheel on the passenger side rear chewed into the high concrete curb there. Looks like minimal damage on both sides of the Macan but unfortunately the Caddy hit with such force there is suspension damage underneath. I really loved these wheels which were available on the 2018 in a 20 inch. On the 2020, they are only available in a 21 inch and for more than $3 grand. I picked a different wheel for my 2020 because I like the ride with 20 inch the most.

Really sorry, hope you'll get everything sorted.

"The owner was apparently there but neglected to say anything to me personally. I’m not sure what to make of that but I have an opinion I’ll keep to myself" O.o

I have an opinion too, I suspect it matches yours.
