It sucks but during holiday season the amount of door dings that happen, I would also park like that...That is definitely a scumbag move but hey some people just dont show any courtesy and watch other people's car. My friend Alan with a hooked up F10 just had this happen to him this weekend...A door ding that PDR would not even perform the job for him.

Unless you're WAYYYY away from everything (clear isolated & separating your car from the masses), that's how your car gets key'd

+1. If there were no other parking spaces, i would def be tempted to key those mofos. If i were them, i would just park very close to the curb.

Forget about the door ding, that tree looks pretty scary. I don't think PDR will be able to fix damage caused by faliing tree branches, or the tree itself.

This. I think your risk of damage is greater parking like that because of vigilante parking enforcers. I always find an end spot far from the building and park as close to the curb as possible, leaving tons of room for Neanderthal door-openers.

I know exactly where that place is and all the way at the corner of parking lot so I don't see what the problem is. Here it is on Google Maps.

I usually just find an end spot and park half an inch away from the curb.
