So I bought the audi and it’s parked outside my apartment. I feel the humidity in the air when the females walk by and the envy when the bros pass along - obviously im kidding but the car is nice. The one thing that is bothering me is the fact that i am paranoid of someone bumping into it or some college kid deciding to scratch it for the hell of it. Anyone ever experience this?
I don’t know about all that. But the very first place I went after I bought my brand new Mazda Tribute nine years ago was to a restaurant. I parked under a tree so it would stay a little cooler.
Big mistake. When I came out, I had a new paint job. I had the car a whole hour before birds shat all over it.
Life lesson - Don’t park under a tree at a restaurant.
Have not experienced it. My car is parked on the street too and nothing has happened to it so far…hopefully nothing will…knock on wood joant.
^You drive into work at all? Also - you ever consider installing the s-line exhaust system?
I’ve driven once because I had to move my car for street sweeping and couldnt find a spot…my parking garage is $400 a month so no way I’m driving in everyday…I take the T. If I want to drive in it costs me $24 for the day. I’m sure yours is similar.
Is your apartment near bars/clubs? If not, probably not much to worry about.
Supyogov…LETS RACE! somewhere…
There are bars within 200 yards of it
Ramos, i was waiting for this challenge, I accept. I need to install the exhaust system first before any true racing
ah yea that is kinda sexy…i never thought about installing though.
Another reason why I don’t like buying new cars…
Nothing you can do about it really, but I would be a bit worried about drunks giving it a kick in the wee hours of the morning.
If you are parking on the street, it will get dinged at some point. It’s just going to happen.
Dammit, I’m not a father but to me this sounds just like “your daughter is going to get f’d at some point…” I might need to install a third computer screen strictly to show live video feed of my car.
Should have thought about this before u bought the car.
^I couldnt pull out, it was too sexy.
Aren’t you in NY? Why are you parking on the street? Isn’t ASP a PITA?
Buy a car cover so people know which car they should go out of their way to mess with…
Better question–if you’re in NY, why have a car at all? (Not trying to be sarcastic here, I’m really curious. It seems like it’s more hassle than it’s worth.)
lol, been there.
where i live street parking is pretty much unavoidable even in nice areas.
unfortunately i would echo the sentiment that getting dinged will happen eventually
I’ve had my Q7 for just over a year and have already had a scratch along the side.
It’s just a car, not a human being. The best way is to just not care. It may be a lot of money now but you’ll make more and more as the years go by. And you have insurance. So who cares? It’s like that saying from fight club, “The things you own, end up owning you.” Just don’t give any fucks.
