Garage parking with precision

It’s easy to misjudge your garage and cause a tiny but expensive scratch. To avoid this, get a friend/relative to help direct your car into the best position possible. Now attach a tennis ball to some string and hang it from the garage ceiling so the ball hangs just above a target on your windscreen. This could be a small sticker, or the rear-view mirror. Next time you enter the garage, drive forward until the tennis ball rests on the target. This might even free up extra storage space in your garage.
