    This may not be that big of a deal, but my car is 6 days old so it frustrates me.

    I was parked outside on a street installing the software update because I have no wifi in my parking lot. The guy in front of bumps me as he leaves his parking spot and drives away. I memorized his license plate and it was a white Honda.

    There is no damage to my bumper that I can see aside from a small amount of white paint on my black car.

    Like I said, it's not that big of a deal but it sure annoyed the hell out of me...

    Long shot: he said he was doing the upgrade so no sentry mode available?

    Ah yes. That would be really unfortunate timing, and a warning to others. Don't do software updates while you're out! Mind you, that's probably a good general rule in case something goes awry with the update.
