Usually when I look for a parking spot that's next to other cars I'm checking the front wheels for brake dust. I know that sounds strange, but clean wheels usually means the person takes care of their car, and thus will be less likely to ding other cars around it.

Ever see a car with black/brown front wheels and nearly spotless rears.... don't park next to them.

I do notice other cars of the same make / model, but I usually try not to park near other cars.

Just you man.

I park in the middle of nowhere if I'm driving my mustang, if I'm driving my focus, I park as close as possible, sometimes I even park inside of where I'm going.

Not a bad idea, but some cars out there, the first time you step on the brakes, the front wheels are black.

Own a car with a set of brembos, you'll see what I'm talking about.

Other mazdas park next to me, but I don't make an effort to park next to them if they aren't modded.

I try not parking next to anyone, or I try parking on the left of an area that is unparkable so there will only be one person on my left, and if that person is alone they will open their door to their left and door someone else

+1.

Parking near people normally means scratches, dents, dings, whatever else you can think of.
