    6.6" Width Restrictions with high curbs

    I hate 6.6" Width Restrictions with high curbs!!!!!

    Whats the point in having posts for markers if the curbs are within the markers!?


    I curbed a wheel the other day on such a curb and I have to say i wasn't a happy bunny.

    In my old car MG ZR 1.8 (it was a perfect package for me when I was 19) I went past these restrictions without slowing down. But now I have turned into a little old granny and I have to say its getting embarrassing.



    I think the A3 is partly to blame as I can never tell where the passenger corner of the bonnet ends.

    or

    it could just be my being crap.

    I have to drive through a very similar-sized narrow gap to get into the business park where I work, and every time I cringe as I go through, hoping the wheels are okay - so you're not alone!

    You are not alone! Although some people on here have advocated rear parking sensors, I find no problem reversing in to gaps (yet!) but often get out in supermarket parking bays to find the front end further out than i had estimated - luckily no scrapes yet!
