Of course the car is well sized and well shaped plus has the tilting passenger mirror option available etc. but do you have a 1M or another 1 series? I park without a problem since 21 years but 1M is sometimes surprisingly difficult to judge at the corners. I seriously blame the fat fenders. By the way, I did not curb a wheel in 1M yet but I feel it is very possible, especially if you are in a hurry and on a poorly designed street/curb.
