i keep touching the fron bumper of my car against the parking thing :(

#1
i have a volvo s60 2005 i just bought it a like a week ago but something that is driving me nuts is i cant calculate how close i am to touching the parking thing

i drove a bmw 1995 318is before and with the other car i did not have to worry about it because the bumper would never touch it even if i hit the parking thing with the wheels and i was able to see the hood from my drivers seat but this car is bigger and i can barely see the hood

by parking thing i mean the kind of triangular thing on the floor kind like stone that usually says guest or reserved i dont know the name of that thing

so i think i have 2 options

1.raise suspension

but i dont know how to do it or if it is expensive to get someone to do it for me
and i touch the ground in some other places that are low such as bumps and railroad tracks

2.learn how to park the thing somehow lol which is almost impossible i scratched it like 3 times already and i fear i can mess my front bumper

what can i do to solve this damm problem?anybody have a similar problem?


any help,tips,advice is appreciated

I think you just need to learn how far you can go into a space without bumping it. Imagine you had a supercar or something, you'd need to do the same with it.

Just imagine where you would normally stop, but then stop like 1 foot before your instinct.

I think you should put bubblewrap over your bumper until you learn to park properly. It will look atrocious so you'll learn quickly

Bumpers are only designed to withstand a 5mph collision, so it doesn't really matter if you ruin it or not, it ain't saving your life in a head on collision. As for what you need to do, look at where your car is in relation to the other cars, if your mirrors line up you're good, stop accelerating.

you my friend are a genius that is one of the simplest solutions i never thought of that i just went out to check the car the bumper is still a little low but i got to try it out see if it works that's a great suggestion

k i try that but when i park next to suvs and cars that are touching the thing with the wheels is really tough to get an idea how far im fron the thing

the bumper if i dont park right gets stuck on the thing and it kind of pulls it so im worry i might pull front bumper one of this days
