What the f$%* is wrong with these tow guys? Are these cars so rare that they don't know how to remove a cap without ruining the bumper????

Tow car drivers = brainless or what
Well the asshole must have a insurance, so let him pay the painting of the bumper.

Also let us know what was wrong with your MY 0X? car.

I'm really sorry for these incidents, I would have got furious.
