Hi guys,

I'm a e92 m3 owner who also have a f10...

Was wondering if anyone could help out with my problem on the f10

Here's the link

I do apologize if this is the wrong platform. Just want to get my problem solved.

Never heard of anything like this before to be honest.

I'd say practice until you get it straight?

I'd try with someone outside spotting for you. Maybe they'll be able to see what you're doing. Have them direct you to what looks straight from the outside, and then you'll get a feel for what straight looks like from the inside.

...or set something up with lasers

Is the width of the rear at the tires the same width in the front? If the car is wider in the rear by any amount, if you park straight on one side, the other wide will not be.

EDIT: Looking at the technical specs in one of the PDFs in another thread, it shows the front track at 1538mm and the rear track at 1539mm. The category is the "body" so I'm not sure if measuring at the tires/wheels will be different. I doubt 1mm will be noticiable in the OP's case.
