I have knocked my door of the car next to me, but on checking have never left a mark. So I've always wondered how do people manage to open their car doors so fast and hard that they leave a dent?

They just sling them open.. really. Imagine you just open the door and throw it open as far as it will go. I saw some (I have to say dumpy, scraped-hair and gym-gear-and-tracksuit clad) girl do that in a car park, straight into the side of something. It's almost like they use the other car to stop the door, rather than the door-strap doing the work.

I have seen old people open their door and place it against another car and using it as leverage to help them get out the car.

This is why I park as far away from the entrance as possible

+1. I even force the mrs to park miles away which she moans bitterly about. I just tell her it's good exercise
