i drive my car myself cos i love doing so and even if i have to accompany my dad somewhere i prefer to drive his car rather then let the chauffuer drive.

but there are times when i m not in mood to drive then i ask the chauffuer to drive me around. but this happens rarely.

No, I didn't buy the Baleno so that someone else can have fun and get paid for it too.

Cars I'd have chauffeur driven are the ones I can't enjoy driving.

Being a newbie to driving, I love to be on the wheels. Not sure what will happen once I get tired of it. I could not say whether I love driving or not, today's answer is yes, but may be not the right one.

If I love driving, I hate chauffeur

when you guys get older you'll see things my way :-) after having a DL for about 30 years now I dont care to drive unless the average speed exceeds 80 kmph. I wont use a chauffer on the autobahn and if go to poona without my family i let my chauffer use the passenger seat and drive but other than that why bust your head in traffic if you can afford not to.

well I voted no , I like to drive but the real answer would be combination of that and "no, I cant afford" lol and my car isnt really one which fits the chauffer driven car level..

although I know a guy who is driven around in his....wait for it.....................Zen :s

5 days a week go to work in my office qualis....hate it since I can't drive....

Get to drive my car only on the weekends and don't want to loose any chance to drive it...hence don't prefer a chauffeur...but then as Haryan mentioned, they are very handy when you are not in the mood to chauffeur your family around

Cheers!!!
