      At least I can see plenty of buttons and knobs. Not a big fan of screens but this seems tolerable.

        >screen is half the length of the dash
        >tolerable
        NO
        The only tolerable screen I've seen on a modern car is what Mazda has
        It's not huge and it's not a touchscreen

    Frickinnnnnuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhh spatial awareness? Although much of it is innate it can al also be trained via repetition and practice.
    Also, avoid parallel parking like the plague.

    Just don't crash lol
    there are always driver AIDS now, if you really want to use them, but I think those are going to make you even more neurotic. Maybe clearbra the front of your car to prevent rock chips

      >clearbra

        I have PPF over the entire front of the car, near wheel wells, top of rear bumper. It was expensive as hell, but well worth it.

    >intentionally scratch new car
    >you are now no longer worried about scratching it and can drive it freely or park it wherever
    Or just buy a shitbox so you don't have to scratch it yourself. Or just be worried about it until it naturally becomes a shitbox anyways.
    Unless if it is rare or collectible who cares.

    Install protecting wrap everywhere possible, install seat covers and plastidip rims.
    Leave car further away from entrance at parking lots to avoid fat people ramming their doors on the side of your car.
    Have a two second buffer to the car in front of you on road to avoid stone chips.

      is this something a novice can DIY?

        Sure you can DIY with some youtube guide showing you how its done but the expect the outcome to look like its your first install.
        Imo you should start small with wrapping inside plastics like center console or other often scratched up trim pieces like trunk lip.

        I recommend you to pay professionals at local reputable place for best possible protection wrap installation on outside of the car.

    Take a knife and scratch it under the bumper. Otherwise fate will decide where the first scratch will be. (fate usually does this with a Black person and his shopping cart)

    Always park away from everybody else, but not so far away that some idiot cruising through empty parking spaces will hit it while doing donuts.

    They're the same tips on not crashing or damaging a used car. None of the tips or advice in the world will help you because there are millions of other drivers on the road ready and willing to frick your car up.

    The biggest thing is know the space your car takes up. Every car is different.

      This is why it helps if your car is no more than 69” wide. It fits everywhere with room to hoon to spare.

    see all the other drivers on the road? just don't run into them. it's literally that easy.

    also park on the empty side of parking lots so you won't get door dings. plus the walk is good for you.

    Cars today are loaded with so much safety tech you should mainly be worried about someone ELSE fricking your shit or your tires failing during a critical moment. Parking? Sensors both ways and at least rear camera if not 360 camera.

    unless you have a garage small nicks and scratches from public parking are inevitable. some people just don't give a frick and you can't do anything about it.

    Just embrace the scratches. Nothing in life is perfect, flaws are a part of life.

    Never use a drive thru wash. Go to self wash and use soap and rinse. Drive on highway to dry.

      that will make a fresh layer of dirt adhere right back on the paint. dry it by hand with a microfiber.

        I have not experienced this. I will use microfiber to remove water spots though. I like the blue sponges chemical guys make.

    Do not ever park your car at a grocery store, costco or sam's, or mall, or really any parking lot that isn't your driveway. npcs have no respect for other's people's property and will not think twice about hitting it with a shopping car, accidentally scratching it, with their purse, keys or their own car. Also never take it somewhere kids may be near it.

    If you use the car eventually it will get marked sooner or later. short of shelling out for ppf it's gonna happen no matter what.

    Steal 2 traffic cones and practice parking/moving quickly around them without hitting them.
    They will simply go under the car if you get tall skinny ones no harm no fowl if you commit. So low stakes practice slowly gaining SPACIAL AWARENESS. LEARN YOUR BRICK LIMITS.

    How to prevent other people from scratching your car in parking lot?

    I lost my license for a few years in my early 00s so I kinda know this feel. Its just going to feel awkward and uncomfortable for a bit but you'll get used to it again. Just drive at a comfortable pace and leave plenty of room, its not that hard. You dont have to be in sport mode at 5k rpm riding 6" from people's bumpers and changing lanes like a maniac. Cruise around some residential streets for a bit at slow speeds

    buy a beater and frick up the shit out of it

    then when you get it out of your system, buy a car you want to keep in good condition
