Re: spotted in a fb parking group

To be fair with the 1.4 the second picture isn't unreasonable it's an absolutely annoying experience parking the damn thing sometimes. If there is loads of room in a car park I'll just chuck it over 2 spaces

Not Brands. Though I've not been for years looks more like Snetterton.

The S beige on the first photo looks like mine but by the registration it's not me

You can always spot a car that's been consistently well parked by the scratches on its wheels that it hasn't got .

Since I got my wheels powdercoated I've been so **** at parking, always end up like 6" away from the kerb for fear of damaging the finish!

Haha I've been known to open the door and hang out the car to make sure I'm not too close. I get no further than a solid foot away from the kerb. On average. 50% of the time.
Okay I basically abandon my car.

Re: spotted in a fb parking group

In defence of the second parker, it could be that the cars to the side of when it was parked, forced it to park like that.

Later, the other cars moved off, leaving the 500 looking stupid.

Regards,
Mick.
