    Not sure that the perimeter warnings caught the trashcan infront of my car...
    I reckon I had 0.5" to spare here :)

    For side clearance I do manage to get between cars & other things with my mirrors about this close on each side. I was actually just looking at the mirrors and considering cutting a custom set of mirrors shorter to make the S a little narrower. Don't think I've seen that mod ever?

    The inches are pretty accurate. I've measured them. But, I would really prefer some WHITE YELLOW RED indicators on the screen for backup and would prefer if in the parking phase (which the car can certainly understand) it would slightly reduce throttle response to allow more managed creep.
