It looks like I need 1.9m height clearance and 2.6-2.7 m horizontal clearance to be able to park my car and open the doors.

Question, I have only had a chance to see the show car for 15-20 min but have never truly study and inspect closely. I find the doors of the SLS to be surprisingly practical and more so than my California when opening, it needs so little space between cars. Since the Dihedral doors open upwards and outwards, I wonder if I will be ok in most situation in car parks. There are always cars beside you and I also wonder if I don't swing out the door fully upward and outward in case it is tight, could I still scoot out? Any worry for any potential owners?

Looks as though you need 682mm (Nearly 27 inches) gap, but does depend totally on the line of sweep - can image someone parking close just for the hell of it.

When I park my nice cars, I'm much more concerned about the person who parks next to me, not vice versa. However, I am a bit concerned about the vertical clearance in my garage.

kindda a big risk till I get the demo to my garage and try

I will have to make sure I park carefully. Some people may just wanna park so close that I can't even scoot in.

The 458 has more usable doors in this sense I bet...

SLS is very practical and 458 has long doors but the best is sliding doors like those on Alphard.

Let me try to measure the distance between my car and the SUV next to me, could be problematic as I need 0.7 m of space.

Can anyone confirm if I could get out with doors half swing up?
