This past weekend, I went shopping in the Jersey Gardens Mall.

Since it's the holiday shopping season, I needed to be picky at where I park my Infiniti G20t.

So I parked far away from the nearest mall entrance and away from SUVs, crappy looking cars and vans. I found a nice spot between a Nissan 350z and a later model Maxima (what are the chances!).

As I was shopping, I could not help but worry that somebody would ding up my car, steal it or worse.

Does anybody else have the same phobia or is it just me?

I was like that with my 240. The G20.. eh, not so much. Still try to avoid crappy cars and people parked "on the line" but I won't go to the extremes you described...

thats my everyday life with both cars i dont even pick wisely who to park next to i dont even park somewhere that anyone else would park at all..

my wife use to be like wtf why do we have to cross the street to go to the supermarket... cuz theres no carts there!!!

in the end i been like that for so long now people are used to iit and they are looking for spots to park when i'm driving ..

i do it not to be vein its just that if i walk out of the supermarket and see the side of my 330ci dented and scratched i would lose my mother f'n mind i would stomp in the car next to me ..

i would fight over that.. its sad but i would....

I just park at a safe distance... as long as the people parked next to me are parked in the lines and i have enough room to move arround with, i'm fine...

The problem isn't the actual car hitting you most of the time. It's the fat guy who kicks his door open and manages to push the edge of his door into yours creating a "ding" or dent. Most of the times he will just walk away. Sometimes, when he really hits it, he may stand and stare for a minute, maybe even say "oh shit" but nevertheless will close his door and walk away like nothing happened.

In NY we have even better scenarios. There are a particular ethnicity of women (I will not say which one) that can only parallel park by hitting both front and back cars to determine the amount of space they have. Oh, and not once, but repeatedly. There are also those idiots that come out of parallel parking by putting the car in reverse and SLAMMING the car behind them.

All IDIOTS, the lot of them.

I know what your talking about but i'm just saying.... I have a 1994 that i drive every day... i wont be anal about it because if i am, then i wont drive it anywhere... its a car, its a means of transportation, and it isn't the prettiest thing out there. I am not saying i dont like it, but i'm not going to try and do everything i can to protect it, because no matter what, one day fate will take its course....

It's actually women of all ethnicity...most of them (esp. the old ones) are ignorant who will say "that's what bumpers are made for" when they hit your bumper when parking...

I park my car in a parking garage every night at my school. I usually try to find a spot next to one of the support pillars so I can park way far over in the spot next to the pillar so the person on the other side of me won't damage my door if they fling theirs open.

No, usually at strip malls, they only have the "Expecting Mothers" and "Handicapped" spots.

My office is in the same building as a payday loan/check cashing place.
The 1st 3 days of the month is crazy, I hate parking anywhere near here.
I only get concerned really when my wifey is driving the car, shes pretty good though so I only worry just a bit, mostly about curbing the rims.

When I had my old Pathfinder, I came out of Lowes to find a big white dent in my driver door. I see the two people from the white car parked next to me going into the store. Needless to say, I was not careful in opening my door.....repeatedly.

The Pathfinder wasn't special but its the principle of the thing ya know. People just have no respect.

An SUV backed into my hood a while back when it was still my mom's car. Hate that dent. It's impossible to hammer out too... :dead:
