I never parck near anyone in a parking lot.....grocery store,wal-mart,hardware store etc. Even though she is 6 years old I don't want to get any door dings if I don't have to.

H***...I even have a special parking place at work that has plenty of room on both sides and everyone at work respects that!!!!!!!!!!
same here. the last car that gave me a door ding is missing a driver side mirror and two wiper arms now. wonder what happened to them?

How much did you get for them on Ebay????
Was it enough to cover the repair??!?!?!?!?!

You scare me lol.
so you would be happy when someone parks less than a foot from your drivers side door and dings your car (it was a beat *** 80'* lincoln town car nonetheless)? my 5'9 270 lb self could not even fit between the cars

Of course I wouldn't be happy...in fact, it has happened. I was parked at a bank and waiting in the passenger seat for my husband to come out. A beat up old 80s chevy pulls up, and parks pretty close to us on the passenger side. He then gets out and slams his door into mine. it didn't leave a mark, but it was so hard it rocked the car with me in it. The guy looked right at me and smirked, and walked away. He was darn lucky he didn't damage my car (yay for plastic moldings :P ), but what a jerk.
