    does any body have any suggestions on a way to have a camera for the front spoiler that would work with the factory camera? those cement parking blocks can be a hazard.

    Yup, back in.
    Not only to get out faster, but to get out safer.
    It's a pain in the butt backing out of a spot when so many people drive big trucks and SUV's
    You can't see past them, so you are backing out really slowly hoping somebody isn't driving fast down the isle and whack you as you are backing up. I know the sensors help alert you, but still.
    Back in, you know nobody is behind you, you can use the reverse camera to know when to stop and it's easier to pull out of spot.
    If you HAVE to pull in forward because there are cars behind you and you can't back in. Just stop well short of cement block.
    And always park further out. Don't be a lazy slob and sit there waiting for the closest spot.
    Just park away from the crowd, find big spot (corner spot is preferred). If you have too, accidentally, ahem, park over the line and take up two spots. Don't park at a 45 degree angle like a Dbag. Just accidentally pull over the other line and take up two, just looks like you are a bad driver and can't park worth a crap. People won't be mad if you do it that way, and do it near the back of the parking lot. The walk is good for you. :)

    Hehe! I just take 3 spaces and that way I can escape from various directions. :D:D

    Disclaimer...I only park out in middle of nowhere and do not take spaces that are precious commodity to the public. If there are limited spaces, I just don't go unless it is street parking and on the end.

    I wouldn't know, but...

    1) The car is easier to maneuver in reverse

    2) It's safer to pull out going forward (easier to see)

    3) My 2010 SRT8 still has the front fascia fully intact. :)

    You can never go wrong if you use that handicap access spot in the sidewalk and just park on in front of the business you are visiting. If they don't like it tell them their competitor down the block doesn't mind and you'll take your business to them from now on. Easy peasy.

    I can't reverse in at the parking garage for work...not allowed. Plus we have speed bumps which I hate having to drive over...I emailed superintendent and asked to remove the speed bumps and cement curb stops. Didn't get me anywhere but I tried!

    Lockpick or RAX Jailbreak will give you inputs to display a front camera that you will have to install, but wont be "factory". You can set the Lockpick to automatically display the installed front camera below a set mph.
