    Talking Is your Car on Google Maps ?

    Is your Car on Google Maps ?

    Mine and my Wifes is !

    Heres my Dynamik, me in the red T-Shirt and my Chippy

    I made an original thread of it but this thread is for others to share there Google Map pictures of the car too.

    Me my Dynamik and my Chippy on Google Maps ! :)

    A few people have suggested i make this thread so here it is.

    Probably a good idea to avoid having the part that says where you're car is parked I.e home address. You know what the thieves are like these days

    Please share your screenshot of Google Maps with a picture of your car on it !




    And the Wifes A5 Cabriolet !

    Here's my RS3 in the background (parked as far away as possible from the door dingers!) at Sports Wales in Cardiff. I was only visiting for the day and saw the Google camera van drive past. I hadn't thought of that again until I saw this thread, a quick look on Streetview and sure enough there was my motor!

    Because all the cars are parked at the furthest extreme of the car park, away from any others! And if I was making it up I'd be choosing cool shots like yours not crappy long distance car park shots!!!

    Here's mine. Took the screen shot from my phone. I reverse park 99% of the time, but obviously I parked forwards that day which is a little gutting as I prefer the front. It's pre lowering and new wheels too. And it was close to when I serviced it as I had the new oil in between the front and back seats.

    Totally agree.

    Need to be really careful what you upload to the web, you wouldn't post your mobile/house number on here for all to see but your HOME address!

    Be websafe!

    No problem, just saves them eyeing up nice cars and the address being on a plate for them

    OK, don't laugh... but here it is. It doesn't get parked there anymore - and it's a crap car anyways so no one would want to steal it!

    It's disappointing to say the least - back end has stepped out on me more than once when I wasn't even giving it some beans.

    Mind you, I had a Lupo GTI before it, so I've been spoiled with something that handles like a Go Kart. I miss the loop - so much fun to chuck around!

    Still, S3 is next on the agenda. Purely because quattro would be handy in snowy weather. No other reason... Honest...

    Haha. Lupo GTi's are incredible fun.

    Not surprised the back end slips out, bet its running 195 tyres or something?

    Surprised how many people trust there car's on the road, then again I suppose there's not always a choice, mine's hidden well out the way as seen (right of the Ka, although that's my old house it now can't even be seen on google maps haha).
