Dave, Very sorry that you had such a bad start to your break. FWIW, I'd say that the theory that there's been some sort of strike there is likely as surely, with your meticulous car cleaning regime, you would have noticed that damage b4 if it hadn't occurred on your journey? If it was a strike, that's not so bad re build quality as just falling off - I think.View attachment 7026
From the back.
As for the possibility of something hitting it- yes, it’s possible. There is a small scuff. I don’t remember hearing such an impact, but the shock of a piece of trim suddenly flapping around in my peripheral vision has fogged my recollection.
I’m pissed off.
