Aaaarrrgghh! UPDATED
#1
As much as I love my convex passenger side mirror it is really hard to tell angles and distance when backing up, especially as I back up by looking in the mirrors only. 
Add paying attention to the car that's parked in front while I'm trying to parallel park behind it and this happens. 
The final score is:
Pole: 1
Luxstang: 0

Very very very sorry to see this.   Hope everyone is okay.   At least the damage is in the rear...most people will think someone ran into you, as opposed to you running into a fixed immovable object.

I bet "scheisse" was shouted a few times very loudly! That really sucks.
I'm actually surprised you do not have damage at the panel under the light. How is/was your bumper attached to body?

I've replied to one of @WideBody's post, he should consider a rear camera.
Now that I see this... I think i'm gonna add one to mine in a not too far future.

I don't know how far the damage goes as I've yet to take the bumper off.
It looks like the mounting bracket could have suffered and I hope it didn't pass the shock along into the trunk. It doesn't look like there's damage beyond the bumper and maybe the bracket. And to my ego of course but that's why I posted it here. Consider it a way of coming to terms with my stupidity. Smile

Although it is weird that I never damage my other cars but I've backed this one into stuff 4 or 5 times at least. Always the passenger side corner.
Each time only the edge of the bumper hit the quarter panel and snapped back into place. I did repaint that quarter corner at least 4 times.
This time it was more to the center of the car but I still count it as passenger side corner to fit in with the picture.
And it's not like I turn into a complete idiot once I put the car in reverse. I can maneuver backwards with a trailer on a car so it's safe to assume I know how to drive both forwards and backwards.
It's only the Mustang that I back into stuff all the time.
Weird!
