Im the same way with my cars. On my other car (BBC 72 Nova) I have a hidden switch where I can choose between rev limits, so I have one setting under 3K whenever I have to take it in to get the front end aligned. I came back to pick it up once and one of the mechanics said the engine was missing. So I yelled at him " were you doing driving my car around!? On the lift, off the lift, no more! "...

Had my dad's friend drive my car with me in passanger seat. I wanted to see how it feels when you stomp on 3.0L I6. I can say that it gave me goosebumps. Now, I understand why my gf keeps telling me to accelerate slower

I let just about anyone drive my car. I think it is dumb to be anal about that kind of stuff.

few days after i got my car, i let my wife take it. I remember it was a sunday beautiful day here in los angeles. I was watching her back it out from my front yard as she let the front right side tire drive off a 3 inch curb and scratch the bottom of the the bumper , wright below the fog light , since that day i did not care no more and now let everyone drive it who wants to. Now i am waiting to get the new body style m3 in year, and wont let anyone drive it

So far, only my parents and me. I don't let my sister drive it because she doesn't really slow down on speed bumps and stuff like that. My parents drive really slow, so i guess that's fine with me. Other than that, one close friend, and that's it!

I'll let any of my friends drive any car I had if they know how to drive 5speed. Except my old riced out jetta because the bumper was so low to the ground.

My dad drove it for the first time a few weeks ago. A week later he lays this weird passive-agressive trip on me: "It's wonderful how smooth your car shifts and drives . . . it was particularly exciting for the people behinde me when I tried to get started on that hill when I was trying to distinguish reverse from first from third! And the alarm that went off when I used the key to open the door - it eventually went off after driving for a while."

Jeeeezus - never again.

I used to be REALLY cautious and my cousin was the only person to drive it. But now I realize its just a car, who cares. I beat the sh!t out of it daily and it's still running strong, so someone redlining it once or twice isnt really going to hurt.

Cool

Nobody drives my car. Not because its anything too special but none of my friends can afford to fix it if they f**k it up. Not even my girlfriend of 3 years has driven it. If she messes it up I have to fix it. Plus a wrecked car can ruin a friendship. My car is my *****!!

Ditto same here. Only two CLOSE friends drive my car. They can afford to fix it. And plus, on of them has a hopped up Mustang GT which is faster than a bat out of hell, so it is a win-win for me in that situation.
