Our cars are parked in the building during the day where there is little shade and in the office in the night where there is lot of dust as there is construction going on.
We are shifting soon but even at the new house, 2 cars will be parked in the porch where there is a shade and the remaining in the underground basement parking where they will be washed regularly.

Accord, Matiz & Indica in parking at our place.
Astra is outside close to compound wall under cover. I used to park Astra at our old place sometime ago (about 200 meters away) however twice someone removed air from tyres so now a days prefer to park it here.

I park my car in the open space provided in our building.

Luckily we got rid of the other two Vehicles, had a was tough time finding parking space. Now i don't have to worry about parking anymore. The vehicles used to be either parked in the office or in the road.

Now I keep my car covered at home and in the office its parked in the open under the burning sun.

at office my car is 70% of the time in hot sun, at home i park it in the driveway with a car cover on it. A thick/good car cover made of 2 layers rugged cloth lined inside with platic for water resistance should do the job well of protecting the car from nature. The color of the front bumper has actaully faded a little due exposure to hot (hyderabad) sun.

I park my car....

...on a steep slope
...right next to the community garbage can
...under the tree which is continuously shedding leaves, flowers and branches
...which is also a prime spot for birds to pirch and drop their droppings
...and the cats love the garbage can so they chill on my car with their dirty paws
...the dogs like to chase the cats, and use the wheels for ...

But this is bombay so i have no choice! I'm fortunate enough not to have to hunt for parking on the road everyday!

My vette stands in the garage and the G35 outside in the driveway...i wash them almost regularly and then wax them to protect from the sun...

my cars are in good condition and then after soo much i just dont worry, cuz they are meant to be driven in and driven in hard...

The cars in India stand in front of the house, there is no garage there, but the next home we build, we will definetly make place for a garage, as of the now the 2 benz are covered as soon as they come home...well now 1, since we sold off the S, so technically 1 left until oct..

all the others stand outside just like that but there they are washed everyday, so you dont have to worry too much.. and no one car park next to them its all good there..

Right now, the car is parked in the garage. There was a time when we had our Accord, Nexia and the Skoda all at a time. So the Accord and the Skoda were parked in the garage in our house while the Nexia was parked in our neighbours house. And now since the Nexia and the Accord are sold, there is enough parking at home for the Skoda and another car which hopefully we'll b getting soon

At home, 3 cars in the car park inside the house. 2 cars have a roof and one car without a roof. Our 4th car the Maxx, outside the house next to the compound wall on the street.

In my office, we have 2 covered car parks for mine and dad's car.

At my other office in the centre of the city, on the street without a roof. As soon as I park the car the office boys put the car's cover on it. It protects it from the scratches as its a very congested area.
