Re: What are you quirks regarding your car?
I drive an automatic, and i ALWAYS put the car into neutral first, then pull the handbrake, let go of the brakes, shut off the car, then step on the brakes and put the car into park.
When I'm about to go, I ALWAYS put the car into gear before releasing my handbrake
If my AC is on, I ALWAYS shut it off about 1 minute or two before i get to my destination, and just let the fan blow. My sister says if I don't, the next time i turn on the AC, it'll smell... And you know what? I think she's right.
If i'm in a traffic jam, I put the car in manual mode and select the gears so I'm always hovering at about 2,000rpm. So when there's room, I can just jet off. Also, i HATE the kickdown mode.
When i park my car on the streets, I always fold the driver side mirror in. I dont care how wide the street is. I developed this habit because I live in the Sunset District of San Francisco, where 90% of the resident is Asian. [I'm Asian too, and I know how shitty we drive, we lack common sense and most of us just don't pay attention and, well stupid when it comes to driving]
I also put the M logo facing me when i put the key into the ignition.
