How to property park your car

My wife always gives me a hard time or laughs at me but I can't help protect my Gillian. This was in Annapolis on Sunday.

How is that wierd. Don't all car guys seek out an optimal spot where no one can park next to them?

Yup we sure do! I always get mad when I park out far and come back and find people parked next to me.

I have no problems dropping off my passengers and then going to park the car, but I also look for the spots on the ends or even solo spots. They need to make more of those....its like the edge pieces of brownies. Can never have enough of that

Thumbs up

Next time you come to Annapolis look out for a clean as glass lowered Austin Yellow M4 (there's only * 1 * in Annapolis), and you'll see the REAL meaning of "assho1e bimmer-owner parking"

This is how I park every day at my office. They are my spaces so not as arrogant parking as it first looks. There's no way I'm risking anyone parking next to me.

Perfect spot. I usually just opt for an end spot and park as close to the end as possible, in the hope that the person who inevitably parks RIGHT next to me stays within their space.

Dash cam and 2 security cameras on it all day. Plus everyone knows it's my car and I pay for 4 spaces so not a big deal.

Out of all the brands within our class, Benz, Audi, BMW, P cars, etc, I tend to see more BMWs parked in the end slot or between pillar walls or even way out of distance relative to the entrance door, than any other make auto. As I drive parking lots looking for the above mentioned spots, it's typically a BMW that I'm competing with for these choice parking selections.

OP, Good for the many of us keeping those door dingers away from our pride & joys!

I take up two spots at work but then again I park far away.

My parking garage at home has 7 floors plus the roof and even though cars are rarely seen above floor 5, I still go to floor 7 "just in case"
