    I bought my wife a car so that she has no excuse to drive mine. She knows that I don't want her to drive mine and she's fine with that surprisingly.

    She has a bad habit in her car where she rides the clutch while changing up gear and accelerating sometimes

    That's exactly what my wife says.
    "It's only a car. Why have you just spent 4 hours cleaning it, it will only get dirty again"

    The other thing that really gets me is the car park tickets, she just chucks them on the floor 😡

    My ex :keule:she kerbed my week old 18's then when I looked at her she went mental like it was my fault she couldn't drive properly. Funny hhow I managed to drive the car for 4 more years without adding to the damage.

    lol make sure it stays that way:lmfao:

    My other half doesn't have any inclination to drive my car (probably because she hates the colour and the fact it's an audi) and that suits me fine:)

    no one drives my car thankfully so i dont have to worry about that thankfully but my ex used to always blame me for being so obsessed with the car cleaning it twice a week when i can, or after washing it and it rains i quickly dry it up again (not scratching the paint obviously :) )

    My wife Kerbed my brand new a4 19" rotor wheel within a mile of her driving it on the first night. After multiple swear words and a few minutes of silence, I got the "it's only a wheel" response. Some more silence involved and almost a tear down my face

    This is me (not your GF obviously) but having a horse etc. lol I have an Audi convertible and my ex gets so disgusted with my car that he still washes it now and again but he has OCD as far as his car is concerned.

    My wife only admits to anything car related once the actual car has been sold, which is a bit worrying at the moment as my s3 is going up for sale in feb!

    My kids only let on recently that my Wife used to race the local boy-racers in their souped up spoiler holders every time she used the RS6.

    And to think how much she moaned about the cost of the AMD stage 1 tune.

    Oh, we've got a Q7 now and she kerbed both drivers side alloys 'cos she's too lazy to park on the left and cross the road!

    I, on the other hand, kerbed both the left wheels, much to her amusement.

    Easily remedied this,
    Jack prestigious automobile up and remove wheel,
    Call nuisance wife to dark secluded area of garden,
    Show damaged rim to offending said woman,
    Listen to lame excuse and count to 10,
    Beat said ungrateful woman within an inch of her life with afore mentioned alloy device!
    Job done, recycle said woman!

    and relax, :ninja:

    Nope... Luckily as I cannot afford one Thank God.... The RS3 is expensive enough as it is without the added expense of a wife or g/f bleeding me dry of cash. Also, no-one not even my Dad is allowed to drive my car unless in an emergency.
    Mum has driven it once when been away at relatives & I had gone out to a football match with my Uncle and she needed to go shopping with one of her sisters.
    Luckily, she has driven automatic before & she is a careful driver. Just annoying that she is very short and leaves seat & mirrors in wrong position just like the Audi Dealerships! :banghead:

    The reason "failure to adhere to audi driver etiquette and car care" should be added to the list of legal divorce criteria.

    Mine is not bad around town, but on the back roads or the motorway she is painfully slow. When I drive I constantly get the "your driving too fast, your to close to the car in front". I now just turn the radio up.

    My son, who had not long passed his test, was giving my wife a lift into town to meet her pals. Due to roadworks they were running a wee bit late so, when he stops behind a truck, she says what are you stopping for, the car will fit through that gap. He's not so sure and doesn't want to damage the polo that i had bought him but reluctantly does what the experienced driver tells him. You guessed it, loud scraping of fns wheel. Lucky you don't have alloys says she with a laugh, actually i do says he with a tear.

    In short, she managed to trash a wheel from the passenger seat, that takes some doing! Don't even get me started about squeezing in between 2 sheds to get 10m closer to the supermarket.

    Don't set me off on parking 😡
    I parked last week in a shopping center car park, The car park was empty and I parked away from the door. When I returned an hour later, already grumpy after being trailed around the shops guess what? Yes the car park was still empty apart from the 2 cars parked next to me, and they were so badly parked I had to squeezes to get in

    Me and mine have been driving together now for 45-years; I do ALL of the car cleaning and maintenance, and she does ALL of my cleaning and maintenance - for which I am 100% appreciative. However, when it comes to damage, I pay for mine and she pays for hers; and that's always worked well for us:
