    Lol Triple_Salty. His ute is hardly shit, I'm not a fan of the Ute/SUV craze and I hate the majority of idiots in them but I don't get salty about it. I was just saying the guy is probably jelly he can't afford something like it even if it doesn't register for a high roller like yourself.
    I don't how know how people afford Rangers $50k+ when i struggle to afford this Blue Ute at $38k on-top of repaying mortgage in Auckland.

    Most utes out there are probably owned by businesses. So they depreciate them and all sorts of tax benefits. For your typical Joe Bloggs, buying a vehicle like that is just a really quick way to lose money as it depreciates so fast.

    Whatever the reason is, someone intentionally damaging your stuff - whether it's a beater or perfect - not cool.

    Are you sure? Commerial vehicles like utes tend to hold their value surprisingly well compared to most cars.

    The first thing to do is file a police report, the second thing to do is contact your insurer and lodge a claim, the third thing to do is to contact the employer of this muppet and send them this video.

    Actually utes and vans dont depreciate that fast, they hold value really well.

    Yeah, second hand utes are ridiculously overpriced.

    Fair enough, I haven't studied it that much. Was just basing it off what few year old utes tend to be listed for compared to new ones. I guess they bump the prices up of new ones each year which helps with that. Lose the most at the start like cars, which if you're paying 50k+ for a ute, isn't pocket change (for me).

    2018 SR5 Hilus - 52k, 2016 with 60k on the clock $35k, perhaps thats relatively not bad though? Still get some listed at like 49k, which just sounds like a ute that won't sell.

    Anyway, i'm keen to know how OP knows the elbow masters financial position to know that they can't afford a ute like his though.

    Utes are cheap new and expensive second hand. Compared to cars, buying new is actually a pretty good value proposition.

    Perhaps hes implying buying a brand new ute outright is a luxury most cannot. Finance is an entirely different ball game.

    Old mate in the hi vis probably drives a Porsche for all we know, but generally most unwarranted damage to someones car is financial jealousy. Generally.

    So? Utes are like road aids. Everyone has one and they are all shit (and 90% drive like shitheads). They're the new skidline for boy racers that gained age, but not brain cells.

    Nah there's actually names for ute people..

    Firstly we have normal ute owners who carry shit around in their stock ute because it's a ute and that's what it's for. Like myself and NoCash. I carry lots of portable fire equipment in mine. and I don't like vans because they are aids to drive long distance.

    Now we have "lowered ute retards" who simply are just boy racers who haven't grown up. - will probably also run a "diesel switch"

    and the top of the cake ute bundies are "lifted truck ****wits" who put huge mud tyres on their shitty hiluxes, skite about having a "diesel switch" and rip up public fields, destroy property and drive also like ****wits everywhere else.

    speaking of utes, Triton GL-S models have an electric opening rear cab window to huck things out at people behind you.

    Where's the dickhead tradesman option. So many of these egotistical dipshits to sit in right hand lanes on express ways in utes but also the classic van.

    Modern well specced double cab utes are the new Falcodore. It's the same demographic, with the same driving habits.

    Most post 2006 utes have a higher ride height and are 4 doors. So even though they drive well with loads of power, they're just not as user friendly as my OG courier king cab for loading roof racks or heavy equipment in the back.

    OP, what's your relationship to this fool? Can you indentify him to your insurance company with more than just a first name?

    It's missing these features:
    - incorrect speedo to drive over the speed limit legally
    - upgraded brakes so you stop safely when tailgating

    I feel like you don't actually drive anywhere. Because every type of driver out there does that at times. Don't let me get in the way of you crossing your arms though.

    I think he hit your car on purpose but he didn't mean to dent it. But does it matter? He did it.

    You are not entirely off the mark.

    Yes private owners like the others have said, the value of utes hold well for resale.

    But businesses including sole contractors like many tradies, depreciation from a tax perspective for deductibles is a factor in why they are bought/leased.
