I take the other car if going to a car park except at work where I get in early and bag a good spot. The curvy panels do allow thinner metal to used like those big old fridges!
Our other car is corrugated down one side from a park and run in my wife's work car park with deep grooves along the full length. Unbelievable
Oddly I thought that they were pretty good. Our Mito seems to be much worse. I managed to open my GT's door on the front wing and thats left a big vertical line and theres two on the rear wheel arch where doors have been opened on it.
If you have to, go for a distant corner space, apart from a 50% risk reduction as your only exposed on one side, people are lazy and don't want to walk further than they have to from their car so will usually park in nearest spot not the furthest corner (unless you meet me in a car park that is )
I think there is some truth to the theory that G's are more prone to dinks. I've had about 4-5 dinks fixed by my local guy (a true genious), and according to him, there is an overrepresenation of Giuliettas at his shop.
I think it,s the shape of the panels which show up dings more than on some other makes,the 147 showed them badly because of the swage line which ran front to back,and the giuli shows them because of it,s delicate shaping on it,s panels.(none on my bella yet)
