Your friends get pissed when you don't let more than 5 people in the car, while the other guy has 8 in his M800.

What about:

1. The nightmares when the women drive your cars with their foot on the clutch. Or are totally oblivious to the existence of any gear after 3rd.

2. Spending the entire afternoon cleaning alloy wheels, and then having some smart alec tell you "Whats the point, they are going to get dirty anyways?". I mean, dont they shower every day then?

3. Friends and family getting pissed with you for taking the best stretches on our station trips and handing over the drivers seat only when you enter city limits or bumper-to-bumper traffic conditions

Firstly you try to ignore and try to make his mind divert from the car but for sure there are some relations you cant say no to but i can tell you(though there's no need) the moment some1 else is there on your (driver) seat , the heart starts beating faster and faster and you pray that the drive comes to an end sooner than later and not to forget , while going back you tell him the shortest route possible and once reached you ve a big sign of relief on your face and suddenly the smiles are back ....
Totally agree with you infact i dont even feel like giving my good old 8 yr old zen into anyones hands but still have to give it to near and dear ones or then sit and face the music.
