i got it...bmw should make an invisible forcefield around the car that spans 3 feet in every direction except the bottom of the car, of course...that way nothing can hit you. and if they hit the forcefield and fly off into oblivion.

Going to Dubrovnik in Croatia later this summer and will bring back some land mines. There are litterally still thousands all over the place.

I think that will do it

Sorry I didnt take the time to read all of the responses but I just felt like ranting. So yesterday I went to the store and I swear some people cannot park. Didnt take pictures or anything but someone drive a taurus quadruple parked. They actually parked in 2 spots next to each other and the two right in front of them. I wanted to key so bad but I held myself back. Not that Ive ever done it before. And as with parking I hate how people park with enough gap to where you can almost fit a car but you cant and it just leave a gap there when they could have parked correctly and opened up another space up.

Also I have recieved a few dents from people who dont know how to open their doors. They have to open it all the way for their huges a**es to get through that they put dents in my car. I just hate it when that happens. Resulting from that i have a few little dents on my doors from people like that. Im a good guy but why do bad things happen to my car??

Buy a beat up car and leave it in the car park 24/7. When you come and park your BMW, go and park next to your beat up car and put it within inches of it. If someone sees how close that car is to your nice BMW, there is no way they will park next to you for fear of them being somehow blamed for causing any possible damage!

Could work

I was surprised at how many of them were not expensive cars, and not so surprised at how many hummers that were the a$$holes

I was seriously considering it, but then I wouldn't want to deal with fixing whatever got busted on my baby in the process of running it over... Not to mention the cops...

If you do come up with a mod similar to trailer hitch, I would be most interested..!!!

When I visted Paris, I remember noticing that NO-ONE leaves the handbrake on, and they park even closer. They just nudge each other enough to get in/out of any space. Scarey.
I also did not see any cars without dented bumpers.

I note in your photo is that your MASSIVE 3 series is pretty much up to the white line at either end, with what looks like < 500mm length left over.
Your local council must really be trying to get bang for buck on those parking meters.

Actually a private company watches over the parking meters, and they're making a fortune, believe me...

Also, parking slots vary slightly in size, though I have yet to come across parallel parking slots that allow more than 2ft. on either end of my MASSIVE 3 Series, unless I park in slots reserved for tour buses...

Re: buttheads that take up two (or four) parking places with their "precious" car: I usually put the passenger side of my car about three inches from their driver door, lock my car and go about my business. Force the inconsiderate bastard to climb in his passenger door if he wants to drive away.

Of course, I do this when I'm driving the POS Eclipse, not the Bimmer.

And that reminds me of a joke ... what's the difference between a guy that parks like this and a porcupine?

With a porcupine, the prick's on the outside.
