Talking I want Diplomatic Immunity!

I always thought it was boring stuff like not being arrested for knowing secrets about SIS and such, however apparently not:
A Russian consul has claimed diplomatic immunity after driving a rental car into a river and refusing to pay a hefty repair bill.
...
While on a holiday, Russian embassy consul-first secretary Valery Martynov picked up his Ford Focus rental car at Hertz New Zealand Ltd's Invercargill branch on April 9 last year.

After several days of personal leisure activities, he called Hertz and said the car was "leaking and had failed". When Hertz had the car towed, a mechanic reported there was major damage, court papers reveal.

"Vehicle has two big holes in engine block, damage to lower radiator and oil filter and oil and coolant all up back of vehicle. Suggest vehicle has been in river and hit something then driven until stopped."

So who sells this "diplomatic immunity" cover so I too can act with impunity?
