Do you glance back at your car when parked?

Just wondering... I find myself glancing back at my BMW every time I park. (Not Range Rover, I never think twice, yet I don't know why)

Almost all the time...I love how my car looks (I normally back into my parking spot at the office, so I get to see the front as I walk away).

yes, and i find myself often walking a little to the side just to see a different angle... and then i look to see if anyone's watching me, because i probably look like a giant d-bag doing that.

Haha I do this too I have no idea why but it's just a habit. I usually do it when locking my door so it doesn't look like I'm checking out someone elses car .

I look at my car sometimes after I park. Only for a brief second though. Still it kind of makes me smile inside just a little.

I absolutely look back at my car, normally numerous times. Ofton times my girlfriend gets angry and says I never look at her that much and then I'm in the dog house

I do it constantly, but even more so if its freshly detailed. Then I usually park far as hell away so I can stare at it longer during my walk

I always look back. And I have a bone stock non-sport plain ol' 335i xdrive lol... I think I'm gonna be obsessed once I lower her and put rims and body kit etc... Don't even get me started on reflective buildings either, I'll try to see the reflection off a bald guys head that's walking by if I can. It's pathetic :-/

oh and I love driving with JUST the parking lights/halo's and fogs on when it begins to get a little dark out before having to turn on my headlights...
