I don't care if they take up as many parking spots as they want.If they park away from the building it does not affect me.
I park as close as I can get.
My cars have so many dings on them that a couple more won't matter.
LOL, you drive ding magnets.
I try to find good spots, not necessarily far away, I "try" to avoid two door cars, big SUV and trucks, but it's hard because even if one does, the cars on both sides of you may leave and those same ones you avoided, may end up parked next to you anyways.
I think it is unhealthy to be so paranoid about an inanimate object.
New cars never stay new and there is always an initial christening.
All cars will become old and very few will escape the minor fender bender or dparking lot ding.
It is a natural course of the life of a car and to anguish over the exterior appearance is lunacy.
I do think a good-looking car is a good thing and we do not need to expose them to unnecessary dangers.
Parking far away and walking is also a healthy habit.
Keep your cars looking as good as you can because in 10 years or so I will buy them on e-Bay.
Maybe - you don't know for sure!!
