do not attempt this manoeuvre at home (but if you, make sure your friends tape it!)

I thought it was a pointless exercise?

Meh. I could have done that a hell of a lot quicker without some stupid technology for those that can't drive.

I thought that was interesting. Mine can get real close to the curb and I thought it was using the curb to detect how far to go in... but she had no curb, just the 2 objects that it must have been measuring.

Very cool!

That was quite cool. Should have used a left-hand-drive!

Pretty cool! I have it, don't use it a lot, but it's cool when I do. Something they should have on SUVs and Minivans. Most people can't park, this will save my car's bumpers at some point if some other have and use it! LOL

I thought i could parallel park in my sleep while in my old car (rav4), but once I got this baby, it's taking me forever to relearn the dimensions of the car, radius, and thus parallel parking.

But you have to admit tho, that tech like that on a car like this is quite impressive.

SO, it WILL work with the Titanium manual focus! I know several people here were asking about that...

It would have really been interesting to watch if she had tried to paralell park it herself!! LOOK OUUUUT!

Third.

Didn't really see much point in the challenge. Now, when they started, had they released a hive of angry bees in the cab at the same time and she did it. I might be impressed.
