I try to park in the largest possible space. In my building there are spaces that are larger than others - so if I can get those I do. I don't park by myself as it draws attention like you said (not that the car doesn't draw attention anyway!) I also don't park where another car could park nose to nose because most other cars are huge SUVs and I've had one drive into my hood once (not in this car but in a previous one). Their high front fenders end up denting and scratching the front hood. So I always avoid that.
