    I'd rather my fingers go between the edge of the door and someone elses door that the edge of the door touch the next car. I would hate to have to apologise for any damage, because I know how I would feel if it happened to mine.

    I'm always checking my doors when I return to the car after being in a carpark. Its getting a bit OCD :givein:

    I'd have moved the traffic cones into the space next to me.

    I have my favourite parking spaces, which makes the wife very happy having to walk down from the top of a multi story carpark [​IMG]

    Cupra, there are some great roads. Also some shitty ones, but I doubt you'll get sent down them. We have a motorway and everything now

    Sidmouth is about 10 miles down the coast from me, I'm in Exmouth. That's just the tip of the iceberg with the Cornish to be fair

    I actually went round the car park twice. Then parked up to the right of that (closer to the camera). Then decided I didn't like it. So moved round onto the corner. Which I then realised wasn't a parking spot but thought sod it. They must have thought I was crazy because everyone else parked up the camera end of the car park, even when I got back to it 3 hours later.

    Spent all day on it Sunday! I've since realised that rain and fields aren't my favourite things!

    I always park as far away as I possibly can from the entrance to anywhere and especially avoid parent and child spaces. There are some right muppets at the gym so I park miles away. Corners are usually good especially if its curved and they have continued the spaces round the curve as you usually get a couple of extra feet either side.

    For Tesco I drop the other half and come back an hour later :bounce:

    I refuse to go the out of town NEXT near us unless I can get there way before opening time to get the only 'decent' or 'pretty' space as my gf calls it away from everyone else.

    No that's a good space - I used to get the comment 'couldn't you get any further away' but she is used to it now...
