So I came back to work from my lunch break and right when i pull into the parking lot i notice a nice looking black Evo MR with a vacent parking space next to it. I normally would park next to my buddies STI or off in the corner away from everything. I chose this space next to the Evo because i believe that...

Subaru > Mitsubishi

and i couldn't resist showing off ;D

I'm a big fan of parking in no mans land. Isn't it kind of wierd that everyone absolutely HAS to park next to the brand new car even if there are 6 spaces open all the way around it?

I park as close to the pillar at the end of the parking lots (passenger side closer to the pillar that is....)

I also usually park at the back, especially if it's a busy area. I find it's faster to go in and shop than searching for a spot near the front that can take forever. I really don't care who I park beside.

I try to find secluded, but safe places to park. If I can't do that, I try to park next to other "nice" sedans, in hope of their being conscience of others when opening their doors. I never park next to coupes. Their doors are longer and heavier, therefore more likely to hit the side of my car.

yea but the problem is also that even if you park next to a nice car, he might drive off 5 min later and a bad driver can come take the spot

Don't even get me started on Parking positions! My girlfriend HATES how much time I spend looking fora good spot, and USED to bitch at me about the fact that I always parked at the back of any lot, until she read that it was a good health choice, like taking the stairs instead of an elevator.

I manage two cell phone stores, and ALL of my employees know that they are to fill any vacant spot next to my car, and are fully accustomed to me parking .5 inches away from them. IN FACT, you can see some evidence of it on Google Maps, Street View.

Notice the OVER the yellow line Parking job on my 2006 Mini Cooper S, parked next to one of my employee's cars!

That is great. We can see your car. I still think that is a little creepy that they are doing that. Does anyone else think so?
