not sure if its just me but but i find it very difficult to park my xh and getting close to gutters. not sure if it is because im not that tall or cant see in the mirrors properly or im just paraniod about my rims. also i think the turning circle sucks

I was thinking this myself the other day. Im fairly paranoid of damaging my rims which would explain the long walk to the foot path.

they are pretty long in the snout and cuts under making it hard to judge. and yer the turning circle is s**t.
