Parking etiquette for Focus's

Suppose you pulled into a lot with another Focus, would you park next to it? Would you leave a space between? If you do leave a space and a Civic, Mazda, or Corolla parked in between you and the other Focus would you be offended?

yeah i got this idea from the Corvette forums

As long as they don't hit my car, I don't care what's parked next to me.

If it was on the back side of the lot, and they parked all by themselves, yea, I won't park next to them. But in the front of the lot, its free game.

Park next to the other foci.

It gives the cars something to talk about while you are away...
