    Just a friendly reminder to always check for obstructions while opening your doors!

    Was at a supercharger the other day waiting for a spot to become available and there were two X's charging side by side. One had the FWD open, the other went to open theirs unattended and the wings *ahem* touched tips.

    California problems. :D

    We don't ever have clogged superchargers out here (Midwest)...have never in my trips been on an "A" stall when someone was at a "B" stall and vice versa...

    Hah yes, this was at the Burbank location which they tell me at the store is one of the busiest in the world with only 6 stalls. Luckily they're installing a 20 stall charger right down the street.

    Here's a pic from my first ever supercharging experience at the Santa Ana location. While there was no line when I got there, this pic was shortly before I left with all 12 stalls filled.

    I have more issues opening my FWD when backed into tighter parking spaces where the doors can easily touch adjacent car's side mirrors.

    Ouch I would cry! I thought the sensors would prevent this but I guess not.
