By the way, where I work the streets are like Brooklyn, narrow with lots of jagged and uneven curbs (due to tree roots pushing them out of the way), so it isn't all that easy to tuck the car up to the curb without risking a little scraping...
I unfortunately heard that sound twice before installing my mud flaps.
