I hate it when people who park next to you in parking lots etc. fling their doors open and it slams into your car... esp with coupes they dent easy (the part between the door and trunk sections)... it's easy for dents to happen like that... it happend to me once while i was sitting in the car parked at a take out place... i was so pissed off! ... lucky there was no damage! now i am extremely paranoid about leaving my car alone in places like dat i rather use the other cars we have when going to malls, movies, etc.. my friends and family say that i need help! i think i need a 24/7 bouncer 4 my car rather! ;p

Idea! ... instead of parking so far away and walkin... maybe all bimmers should try and park next 2 each other in the parking... cause we know we'll be safe and dent free there!... power in numbers

-When I park in a lot with shopping carts everywhere (Walmart Supercenter is the worst), I move every single cart near my car out of the way.

-When I park in a lot, I always aim for an end spot and edge to the curb as much as possible.

-In my driveway, I park as close to the garage door as possible, so when people walk by, they don't scratch the car.

-After eating at a restaurant with my friends, I make them wash their hands before entering the car.

-I try to avoid parking lots where there are no stoppers in the spaces. I've seen these huge trucks that park way past the line and hit the car in front of them. It's retarded.

-When I go into a restaurant or something, I always try to get a seat near the window, so I can keep an eye out on the car.

-If I'm sitting in the car, and the people next to me open their door, I give 'em the stare so they'll be cautious about it.

Anymore you guys would care to add to the list?
