Well the lady who runs the parking lot looked at the footage, my Jeep was parked too far from the camera's view which could only see the sidewalks and some of the road... Lame, whatever I'll find the car i know I will.. He wont like it when I do.

Try other body shops some of them will pay some of the deductible

Stop in to all of the body shops in your area, with pictures and have them give you a call. If someone comes in with a broken tail light that that looks like a match.

The thing about the dmg now that i was looking at it more today, is its not just a dent on both door by the side panels. the rear passenger door on top by the roof rack isnt lined up anymore and sticks outward i can take my palm and push on the top corner and push the door in another inch or so.. Thankfully it isnt leaking as it rained BIG TIME yesturday.. and the front passenger door is bulging out up top by the handle..

Someone mentioned it was a BMW possibly that hit me.. I can see my handle is dmged and scratched.. My bet is someone was backing out of a parking space behind me.. didnt know how to drive and hit me with the corner of thier bumper and the taillight hit my handle and broke scratching the handle.. and so that would mean it should be a taller vehicle like an SUV or truck

The issue is i dont have $500 for a deductable.. We just bought a 2013 Camaro SS with the 6.2 Liter v8, so that money is saved toward the car payment.. I'll call shops and see if they offer to pay the deductable i didnt know shops do that

Check with the local businesses nearby the parking lot. Allot of places have cameras that may be pointing in that direction and could have filmed something. It's a crap shoot, but worth a shot...
