We're not the only ones who can't park

The garage is usually pretty light on a weekend but I still had to give him crap for this.

FWIW, I've driven that car, it's a 2005 with the F1 transmission and it made me really appreciate the BMW DCT. It gets a lot more looks but I think the M3 is a more enjoyable car to drive.

Actually he's a cardiologist. That is his DD Ferrari. He and another Cardiologist also went halvsies on an F430.

All the 6 figure cars belong to Cardiologists and Neurosurgeons. I'm particularly fond of the Aston Martins.

I think taking up two spots is allowed when you own a Ferrari.

I've only seen him do it on the weekends, when the garage is 90% empty. Otherwise he'll pull into any spot.

Besides, this area of the garage is usually filled with guys who have a healthy respect for a decent car.

I get upset with this , but.... Certain cars do get the hall pass. When I see a $100k+ car i usually understand. Or a truck that doesn't fit in a normal spot ( I know most big trucks could roll me over haha).

Never said there was one. He's a work friend and we talk cars all the time.

I just figured people here would appreciate it since there have been plenty of pics of M3 douchebaggery parking jobs.

Probably because most norms couldn't tell the difference between an M3 and a 328. All they see is a BMW aka douche. Although around here there are so many "luxury" cars that they don't really stand out very much.

in your OP, you sounded kind of mad at him when you said "I had to give him crap"
I guess I read it wrong then.

Care to take pix of the inside? I love that Ferrari.
