Oooops….. Apparently a rock came out of my Mini-Z and took out the window of my Mercedes SLK… I didn’t see it happen, but when I went to take a ride to store a few hours after mowing the lawn I discovered the window. It is the only scenario I can come up with. The car was unlocked, we are in a remote area and were around, so I’m sure it was not vandalism.


The car was parked next to a steep hill. I come up the hill fast and need to make a quick turn at the top to avoid the gravel. I noticed after one turn that I'd turned in the wrong direction and discharged in the wrong direction, so I made sure I didn't do that again, but it was apparently too late….


Live and learn... :rolleyes:

Yep, unless the cost exceeds my insurance deductable. (Fortunate that it was my car and not someone else's.)

Te car is totaled now. I see and AMG in your future!
I don't think so... I'd miss the 28mpg... :)

PS: My primary reason for posting this was to make other folks aware of what a thrown rock can do.
