Of course

Front parking sensors are playing up, and the Audio control buttons on the steering wheel have stopped working.

So nothing I'm worried about, but they're being sorted anyway.

L-R Parking Sensors

You don't have these worries in a Defender. The Rear and Front parking sensors are Analog. When you see the vehicle behind or in front beginning to move a bit - you've gone far enough

This barsteward parked behind me last year. Hasn't done it since (sorry fella, musta rolled back a coupla inches, how close were you?)

I've an Old Unc who has lived in London for the last 40yrs. He's never been too precious about his cars. When blocked in, he gives them a nudge fore and aft to produce enough space to escape. He refers to it as 'London Driving'.
