come on, it's not her fault..............it's purely an accident of birth :rolleyes:

When I hear stuff like this it just reminds me of the advantageous effect on my blood pressure, the decision never to buy new has been :)
You know where I fear females most..............supermarket car parks ;)

feel for you mate, but that's life

She can't see why I am so gutted ? I can understand the light rear scuff she did not kno about but to chunk the tyre and alloy you would kno !

Make her pay for the damage out of her shoe and handbag allowance, but this is normally the point where you smack yourself on the forehead and realise you have a joint account lol :)
But normally with my car its opening the door on to a brick wall and looking at me and giggling thinking its going to make me forgive her, that really grates at me.
Or, getting in the car, putting the seat all the way forward so there is a 1 inch gap between her kness and the glovebox lid and then her mobile phone rings and she pulls her handbag up through the gap with all its metal buckles making deep groves in the glovebox lid, grrrr !!
And theres the usual foot marks on the dashboard and windscreen, mascara marks on the ceiling where shes doing her eyes and i go over a bump ( but then some how its my fault for going over the bump!) and to add to the wound my seatbelts always turn orange from the foundation she puts on like a mask!
But when i go on her new laptop and apparently 'bang' the keys too hard all hell breaks loose!
Urghh rant over lol :)

Get the alloy refurbed for around 50-60, it'll look as good as new. Wouldn't bother with tyre unless its dangerous.

Tyre mate just ripped the protector but no metal showing and can't tell unless close - may get refurb eventually but I may calm down in a week or so and realise not to bad ! You wait till I scuff her high heels on her shoes and before you ask no I won't be wearing them lol

Haha well... if you have 'fully indepandant control blade multi link rear suspension' you've got to test it out somehow lol, jokes!
But if you do decide to get them refurbed' i would suggest waiting till after the xmas period as having such low profile tyres you are more likely than not, to hit them in the snow and ice know matter how carefull you are! (not wanting to jynx you ofcourse.)

Not a bad idea, if you have the spare cash of course.
But you could still probally get 100 for a slightly scuffed 18 inch alloy, if you sell them on ebay.

I love how you guys are moaning about girls driving them I'd prefer my mum to take my car than my dad last time he took it to work (race marshal at oulton park) he used it as a safety car for the day ie with the lights on the roof etc the poor thing came home with its tongue hanging out. Old sod that said though my mum has bashed the rear passenger side alloy in but there all corroded and curbed anyway ... how i miss my jobless days cleaning my mk1 :(

Swearing is not allowed on FOC, and starred out letters are treated the same way as if you had written the word.

Its not just my girl friend then.When she gets in the car I tell her not to touch anything.She says she gets bored. Lipstick on the sun blind,closing and moving the air vents.Even put her feet on dash the last time so boots touched the window and dirt from boots on window.I went mad on that one.

Yes but mate to them it's "JUST" a car !!! You only have to watch a women wash a car to see what she thinks of them ......... 😉
