Dinged Doors


Recommended Posts

I for one selectively park like you wouldn't believe - I'm not proud of occasionally parking in the kiddie bit at the local supermarket (though I wouldn't abuse the Disabled spaces).

So I started doing a search on the net to see if there was a cost effective solution:

Some are crazy (but probably totally functional):

http://www.eurobumperguard.com/product_door_protection.html

Can you imagine how a Lexus would look with these things on 'em?

It's a shame that you would have to impair a car's looks to fit one of these - they're more suited to a yacht or cruiser ;)

There was a photograph on here recently of a Ferrari 360 at the Nurburgring when a few people off here went and it had a metal cage surrounding the car. Almost like a private alotment.

Pretty cool and I don't blame the owner!

I think I'm at least as paranoid as you...and I confess to having already bought something like the topoftheline product listed above. :blush:

I haven't actually used it, but it is in the boot should I feel the need! I'm driving down to the French alps for a week's skiing soon, so I'm thinking it might have to come out for the pack-em-in-like-sardines car ferry trip.

Do we not think though that the use of these aids to protect our pride and joys attract the attention to the reason for these aids.

In the sick minded world we live in, it gives people the idea of damaging your car because you don't want it damaged and have fitted these parking protectors, some people are gonna take offence and think you are critising ther parking skills and there ability to open the door of there cars without damaging others. I think i would rather take the risk of parking it next to the islands in the supermarket car parks at least one side is protected?.

It is an over crowded world we live in and i can guarantee you that where ever we park be it in the middle of a field in the middle of know where, you can be sure that within half an hour there is a ropey old banger parked next to your 'baby'!!!!!!!! You know i m right!!!!!

Laters Pumatron :D
