I've always wondered if a hood deflector ever help in preventing/eliminating debris from the road from hitting the hood/roof of the car. Maybe it's worth it to invest in one...

And let's add this here:

Yesterday some dipsh*t in a dodge minivan is parked like 8" from my drivers side when I come out to my car.

I inspect the drivers door and sure enough there's a 1" long scratch from his passengers door. :evil: :evil:

I think I can get it to buff out but it still sucks.

Why do people in non-compact cars think they can park in a compact spot?

so sorry to hear that raitchison!...i agree, i hate those people with gigantic vans, even damn escalades or aztecs who park in compact spots...i think every parking space made from now should be regular size no more compact parking. hope you can get that scratch out man tell us how it goes!

I think people should get special permits to operate such huge vehicles! It's ridiculous but so many people who drive large Super Urban Vehicles, full sized trucks, and full sized minivans don't know how to drive those vehicles safely. And what's worse is that some of them don't give a flying rat's ass about treating other road goers with respect. When the space says "Compact" it means "Compact" It should be against the law to park a huge vehicle over a compact space, just as it's very rude of a person to park over two spaces.

I always try to find parking away from old, large, and/or heavy vehicles. I usually like spaces right next to curbs or if I'm with some friends, we try to find parking spaces where we can box or buffer our cars away potential trouble. Also, when I have passengers in my car, I always make sure that they have enough room to get out and that they treat any car I'm parked next to, with respect. Last thing I need is a friend to ding someone else's car. Usually, the blame, if suspected or caught, goes to the owner of the offending car.

I don't want to be apart of this club :)

Sorry to hear about everyone's dent & scratches :( I find that it is usually the piece of crap cars that don't care about their own car, or SUV's that carry kids around, who swing the doors open without a care about the car next to them.
