Hi Porsche people.

I have to park the car in a building around the corner from my house (don't have a garage). Its a good carpark - assigned space, security camera etc BUT every time I drive into it the front touches down and scrapes audibly (also feel it through the wheel). Now I'm going in super slowly (pretty well at a crawling pace) and I've tried different angles of attack but always with the same result. I looked under the car last night and saw scrape marks on the underside of the very front of the car. My question is ... does it really matter? I mean i HATE the sound/feel but it is really going to do any damage to the car in the long term? You can't see the scraped bit unless you are underneath it so its not an aesthetic question. It would be a bind to move carparks as this one is inexpensive and secure but if i have to I will. Any feedback you guys have would be appreciated.

Thanks

Steve

If it's only superficial scrapes, it won't make a difference, until it eventually wears all the way through.

If you have a couple of photos of the particular driveway, we might be able to tell if it could easily be corrected with some minor cement work (cheap, and with the building's approval of course).

Regards, Maurice.

You could always carry two 2 x 10 by 4' long. This

could just be the secret.

I use two 2 x 10's when I need to put the car in the garage.

Yes my car is parked in the driveway all year. I live

in California.
