    Just what we (this forum and myself) needed, some comic relief. It's almost as if divine providence played a role since Andre (the vehicle owner) chose white paint. Those claws would have done an (obvious) number on darker paint (without a full body bra).

    All the swirls from the woodpecker... I would have killed it before it touched my m3.

    He must’ve gotten really impatient waiting for his VIN and just wanted a car now. Anyone ask when he reserved/configured? :p

    He was checking the fit and finish. At least he didn't peck to check how solid the doors are.

    In New Zealand, Kea birds like to strip the chrome trim off cars when they aren't pecking their way through sheep.

    That Suntek shield explains why he was so easygoing about the occurrence (other than the glass).

    That woodpecker must've really liked the wood trim.
