While living in Florence one year we lost both outside mirrors to passing trucks and more than once we were forced to climb through the window to get in or out of the car because the cars was packed so closely in the car park......I suggest you invest in a protective film such as XPEL Ultimate to help protect the finish of your beautiful new car.I'm glad to be here in this lively forum.
I'm from Florence, Italy.
Not bad parking, hopefully you don't curb your wheels!OK
You want it, you got it.
Here's my NX parked in Florence.
Side mirrors still in place.
Here in Italy Lexus sells only hybrid models, no gasoline.
Selling rate YTD is 100% up thanks to NX model.
NX is the third best selling hybrid model after Yaris and Auris.
Some people can even get into really tight spots, just depends on how good of a driver you are and how well you use your mirror and any other aids for moving your vehicle around.That parking spot sin't as bad as I thought it would be and your NX looks awesome.
I have a fear of curbing too so I stick those circle mirrors onto my side mirrors for a wider angle view.
That point is very true, i'm noticing it more and more, new roads that are getting built have MUCH more space on them. Older, smaller ones built decades ago have buses and trucks struggling stick in their lane. I even notice this with horrible drivers.The 80's... Those were the days.
Anyway... Florence, as you know, is a medieval town so not quite suitable for today's cars.
Your struggle with side mirrors is funny but is the truth.
Today's cars are a little bit larger than those of the 80's but the overall situation is not changed very much.
In effect NX -as many SUV- is still oversized and a 2,10 mt (82,6") width doesn't help.
I was in Rome last week and it has been a war to get out safe from the traffic, but Rome is so beautiful, so majestic.
