My first attack curb? Montreal, backing into a space on the street. in my 88' 944T with RUFF 17" wheels.
Back right, 3" half moon scratch. You never forget. As my car therapist tells me. It seems like just 8,395 sleeps ago.

You wonder if one shouldn't install the "curb feelers" that were popular back in the '50's and '60's.
They are still available, would look pretty terrible unless they could be deployed only when needed.

How about it Porsche, it could be made as part of the parking assist and just think of the money to be made as a $2k option?

It's a little car. You don't have to hug the curb.

And also what mirrors are for, the passenger one tilts down for a reason!

Close call and glad for you there was no damages....but Captain Obvious would say “self inflicted”.

Yes yes. Busy street. Running in to get a package. Would have been totally self inflicted.

Wow...funny this thread hit...I did this last weekend pulling into the underground parking garage at my local grocery store when someone "pinched" me as I was turning in...I though I hit the hips and almost threw up...this was bad enough. Took it to my dealer, I can't tell it was ever damaged...After pics after the weekend, I am heading to Bloomington for the IU vs UVA game...

Thanks...I was SERIOUSLY impressed with how it looks...not that I am going to run about smashing my wheels, but it is good to know this can be fixed. First time in 18 years I have used the "wheel insurance"...
