156 selespeed parking

hi all

Can anyone tell me whats the best way to park the 156 selespeed especially outside the house, confined parking space, as what i am expereincing is that when i go forward in 1st the car just takes off and constantly slamiing on the brakes avoiding hiting cars in front same thing for the rear is there a better way to park the car sooner or later i'm gonna hit a car in front or back,

Help desperately needed, if not gonna severely dent my pocket.

Re: 156 selespeed parking

Your selespeed probably needs re-calibrating. Mine used to do that but was much better after re-calibrating. You will need to go to a dealer. In the meantime suggest you left foot brake to avoid hitting nearby parked cars. GL

yep, calibrating, left foot braking and very VERY gentle throttle (i.e. toe movements rather than ankle movements!)

Just be a lot gentler on the throttle, i'm guessing you're new to the world of sele- it just takes some getting used to. Mine can be a bit lairy in this way under very cold/damp conditions, but thats just personality!

Still check the calibration tho.
