I am very sorry that your car has been damaged twice while parked on the street. I would be more than happy to speak with you about the parking situation near your unit and see if there is anything we can do. Please give me a call at 650-345-4852. I can also set up a time for us to meet so we can also talk about the constant tub clog and water issue with the maintenance supervisor to see what we can do to get this resolved.
