Thumbs up I'd Like to Thank These Truck Owners From Last Night...

... For being "great patrons and parkers".

When I initially parked, it was between a 5 series and 4 series.
My wife and I went to see John Wick last night and upon walking to me car, all I could see were the '2 front ends' of these massive Trucks! I was like ohhhhhh noes! Often times these drivers park any which way they choose. Because your door opening will hit their side steps at best!
But to my utter delight, they gave me and themselves, plenty of room to open our doors! So awesome job guys! I wish there were much more people like you that respect and appreciate others propert y like you do your own and mine.




*edit*
They make my 7 look tiny as frack huh?

My girl always leaves the visor down too. I don't know why that bothers me!

Haha! Same here...

Those truck owners were awesome! Very cool of them to give you that space. If everyone did that I wouldn't have to park so far all the time!

+1 on the visor. Even after the dealer told her the battery was dead for a VERY SPECIFIC REASON related to visors.

The visor was down, and the mirror left in the open position, which operates the vanity light, which if constantly left in that position drains the battery over time.

I will admit, even though she will leave the visor down, she does always close the light to turn off vanity mirror.

Indeed. Because I have seen them pull in to spots any kind of way and just say "F it. No damage to me."

Garage List
2011 BMW M3  [5.00]
I tend to avoid spots with people near them in my truck. Just makes it easier. If I absolutely must, I try to find a spot where one side is next to the curb or something, so I can park as close to it as possible and allow the person next to me plenty of room.

I usually always fold my mirrors in too, since they are at about head level for most people.

Pretty rare, especially when 2 truck owners did that.


I had two incidents when truck driver parked stupid next to my car this summer.

^^ Nothing pisses me off more than when people who park in handicap try and be perfect between the lines!
But that person above did the opposite??? Wow...
