|Lckitty||I wouldn't do it. As said, damage is too costly. Pay for a spot in a garage.|

|greginportlandor||Very helpful to know not to parallel park. I’ve been to the Powell’s garage before and agree very tough to park there — probably the worst in the city. Most of the other garages are much easier. Sounds like street parking downtown is out but maybe garages are okay.|

|Scott Bowman||We stopped at Powellís City of Books a couple years ago and parked in their garage. It was the steepest, tightest garage Iíve ever been in. Donít know if it is typical of other downtown Portland garages, but I would check things out before driving in a facility you are not familiar with. As already noted, you donít want to try to parallel park a Lotus.|

Yes, never parallel park an Evora or Elise/Exige. A small bump will crack the fiberglass and it is very costly.
I park my Elise in the underground at my work. No issues in 10 years but it is not a public lot.
I've parked overnight at various hotels and again no issues.

Just a general warning - do not EVER parallel park unless you are at the front of the line. You will certainly get backed into. A f'n Tesla backed into me once. They have more sensors than just about any car, but a stupid driver is a stupid driver, no matter how smart their car.

Any troubles with street parking in downtown Portland?
I'm considering buying an evora and live in Portland. I've never owned a nice car before and was wondering whether people have had any trouble parking in downtown Portland for a few hours during the day or at any of the parking garages?
