This Maryland Subaru WRX owner did nothing to deserve this level of vandalism on her car.
Harmless pranks on a car include post-it bombing the entire surface, putting the wipers up or replacing a blow-off valve with a duck call. This wasn’t a harmless prank, this was a downright crime done to an innocent Subaru WRX owner. According to Maryland resident Kasey Lynn who goes by the username @BlueBaru.WRX on Instagram from earlier yesterday (Feb. 22,2019) she shared what she woke up to on Friday morning, her pride and joy literally spray painted from hood to bumper.
Check out her post below including a video from her Instagram.

If anybody knows something, please let me know! This is not what i wanted to wake up to this morning! I am fucking crushed. . . #subaruambassador #subaruofamerica #subaruwrx #wrxsti #wrx #worldrallyblue #boosted #cobb #wrappedcars #livery #cobbtuning #konigwheels #rumblebros #modifiedchicks #ladydriven #dailydriven #carporn #cars #carphotography #toplabel #subiewoo #wrxnation #6staroileaters #strafedesign #subivibes #vandalized
The only reason someone random would pull off a stunt like this was because they’re clearly jealous of someone’s prized possession and just want to inflict suffering simply because they’re a terrible person.
Although she filed a police report, apparently they aren’t much help. Thankfully it looks like her Subaru is under warranty and hopefully, Subaru of North America will sort something out for her, perhaps sublet out the work to a professional detail shop who deals with this type of paint correction.
Off the top of my head, I do know that it’s not entirely impossible to remove spray paint from a car’s paint job. One of the jobs of clear coat is to protect the paint underneath. The best case scenario is that the spray paint is only surface top damage and can be removed just like this video below illustrates.
Remember, it’s always bad karma to mess with someone’s property when it’s malicious. These things usually have a way of working themselves out in the grand scheme of things.
I’ll be keen to find out how Subaru deals with this or if the police find some information leading to the arrest of those miscreants.
What would you do if you woke up to find your car spray painted? Let me know in the comments below!
