Didn't take balls lol. Tried it for the novelty but I've been parallel parking more than 30 years - I'm much faster than the car

I use it from every now and then. First time is weird, parking in parallel is easy just be careful with rear right wheel (use your side mirror, move down) sometimes system is not perfect and you could scratch your rim, still a big help. Don't forget to step on the break all time (little by little)

I tried perpendicular parking. We don't do parallel parking here.

When the steering wheel started to spin wildly, I turned off system. Never tried it again.

I like to be in control of my machine. Call me a control freak. I'm ok with that.

Tried parallel once to test it out. Only thing I thought could be better was it parked a bit farther away from the curb than I would have liked, and was sticking out a bit compared to the other parked cars. But otherwise, I thought it worked pretty well and better than I had expected.

I never park close enough to another car to need it.

Nope. No interest in even trying it as parking has never been an issue.

If it allowed me to do a power slide/spin into a parallel parking spot in Ken Block fashion, I'd have more interest in it as that's much harder to well on my own.

Nah, if I can parallel park our Excursion in Downtown Fredericksburg I definitely don't need the assistance :P.

I was intrigued by how it was accomplished with an M6, but never found out.

Thought about playing with it but only that far.
Now when Apple creates the app I'm all in.
