not that BM drivers have a reputation...i did smile at this remark.....

'For the next step, I had to use the turn signal to indicate the side for the parking space, a nice feature to alert people behind me of my intentions.'

next step....note in manual to use the LH stalk whilst turning :roll:

Someone I know showed off their Pious' auto parking. Did a grand job of it, if you ignore that the car was 2 foot from the kerb!
