@ R32, before i can afford to take Dippy's side or go against it, i honestly wanted to know what made him to compare both. i'm not against him or this thread because he may have started this just like that because he was eager to know how many go for car and how many for love. but all i wanna know is why car VS love(the choice given by Dippy)/Girl(the choice 'compared with' by many)
and yes, R32, you are diplomatic at the end in revealing your choice and also holding the car ...

dont you guys feel that the discussion is inclined towards car VS girl than car VS love?
Dippy is clear with the poll question. Its left to the individuals to mention their loved one against their cars (and majority ended up with mentioning their gf's)

Oi Dippy. Keeping in line with this poll, what's the next one you plan?

"Do you love your girlfriend/wife more or your mom?"

And the results shall be announced & incorporated into the next episode of "Kabhi Baans Bhi Kabhi Badboo Thi", now showing on Faart Plus.

This, of course, shall be written by a certain Shyam. Shyambhai Kapasi.

@ surprise, to make myself clear, i never blamed Dippy for anything or never told his question was not clear. of course, its an individual's wish to opt between the choices. All i asked was why car VS love/Girls and why the comparison between the only two

editting my post - i got it completely wrong

when i am alone with my car - its the car i am more worried about.
when i am with my GF - its her that i am worried about.
when i am with both - i will give more importance to my girl rather than the car. because she is my responsibitly when i am driving.

ps: this thread is actually very interesting. i think it makes perfect sense to compare a car with girl - in that way one will be able say whether he gives more importance to his girl or the car in a particular situation.

@Rekha... you have to understand that there are only a few things that people are passionate about. 2 of them happen to be car & love. If one is passionate about cars, it is difficult to be passionate with love also, hence the question.
