Ah, even more clever. Not using the neutral trick seems to drastically reduce the "clunk" but your method sounds like the icing on the cake.


Hey Ken, nice to see you posting? How are you? The picture at the bottom is just a regular old autobox right, not a DCT?

Von zoom... Aren't you a f*ckin self righteous c*nt then....? You are so clever pointing out that the handbrake is actually called the parking brake in the manual !

What do you want, a fcking medal, or a sook on yer mammy's paps?

Don't forget:

If there is a curb, turn your steering wheel all the way away from it if you're facing uphill, or all the way toward it if you're facing downhill. If your vehicle starts to roll, the wheels should stop the vehicle at the curb and prevent it from rolling downhill.

This method works best where the curb is relatively high.

If there is no curb or a very low one, whether you are facing uphill or down, turn your wheels all the way toward the nearest side of the road. If your vehicle does start to roll, it will probably roll away from the street and traffic.

I believe in Colorado it is a law to turn your wheels into the curb when parking on a hill.

I'd just leave it in neutral, fully lift the emergency brake then turn off the car. Doesn't it automatically go into Park when this is done?
