how big are the gaps it chooses? can't wait to try mine out!
Not sure, but today's was quite small!! It does cut it quite tight, swinging in past the car in front. Bit worrying at first!!!

I don't have the park assist. But I question the rationale...

If possible, I always park as far away from anyone else as I can. I don't want any other careless driver denting my bumpers, etc.

By using the park assist to get into those really small gaps - don't you increase the likelihood of other drivers bashing your car, as they try to get their own cars out of a space which is too tight?

Because of where I live, I park in tight spots half of the time. You would generally hope that people would not purposely hit you whilst trying to get in and out of parking spots.

I've been parked in a few times, and I have to manoeuvre myself out very carefully so as to not hit my car in the process.

I can't wait to try the park assist out on my new car. Sounds like people are getting used to it?

Ditto!! I don't park in small spaces for the fun of it ;-) I live and work in central Bristol and although I'm lucky to have my own drive, I often have to parallel park in smallish spots. I'm a pretty good parker myself, but I'm also a gadget freak and so couldn't resist speccing it :) I'm glad I did - I thought it would be a novelty but I've used it more than satnav so far!
