So true guys.
What about when our parents think that the Palio 1.6 GTX is just a small car and give it to a relative to use and it comes back all scratched up.
Happened to ours.
I would rather make my sister learn to drive in my dads merc then my passion (Our lovely Palio).

good one, me being a woman, would surely like to stay away from a woman who drives her car at 40 kmph in the righ lane on a highway. I know that women are not good drivers as men are but then not alll women drive like that.

it is mostly when women are not confident of their driving that they end up driving like this.

I agree with this 100%. I too believe that its the confident that lacks in some women drivers.

i agree with u as i am always too scared to give my car to any body except for my family members. that too they get the key only after listening to ten thousand instructions, by the end of which they think, why the hell they want to drive my car.

and then once they drive it, i start praying it comes back safe.

I can totally relate to most of those. One from me :

You finally buy the car that you dreamed of (and thought that you would rest in peace and be desireless) .... but find that you're still as thirsty as before.

Default Awesome Thread !!

RTech Hats off to you for a great discussion..

One from me too..

- When you take your friends for a long drive and they are busy talking amongst themselves or over their mobile phones, without involving you in the conversation.

- When you show off your car with pride to your relatives and they start comparing your car with their neighbours, but when it comes to borrowing a car they prefer your car to their neighbours..

- When you get your car back from the mechanic and when something just doesn't just seem right.

- When you get your car back from the mechanic and you see oil stains on your steering and your seats smell of grease.

- When you are travelling at 70MPH and suddenly come across speed-brakers/pothole on a curve.

- When motor-cyclists try to overtake you in narrow lanes.

- When a cyclist doesn't give you way to overtake him in a narrow lane.

I can go on and on man..

Cheers,
Manish.

Better than showing her the print outs, give her a trip of the site, show here that there are also few women around here and surely she will understand that logging onto this site is so irresistible.

RTech , had u thought at the start of the thread that it is gonna get this kind of response.
