    Questions:

    1. Did you have the car before you met your Mrs?

    2. If not, did you choose it together and share it, or is it yours yours?

    3. How much do you use your back seats?

    Statements:

    1. If your mrs thinks for ONE minute she can get away with calling you too old you should see that as a green light to be as childish as you want all the time until she comes to her senses. MY GOD! Imagine you telling her she was too old for something she wanted? WOMEN!!!

    2. Tint the windows so all the people she's worried about seeing it (for whatever female reason there could be for that!) can't see it.

    3. CAGE!!! 150 bangers.

    Questions:

    1. Did you have the car before you met your Mrs? Yes I owned it before we met

    2. If not, did you choose it together and share it, or is it yours yours? It’s mine mine and she’s never (not allowed to drive it)

    3. How much do you use your back seats? Hardly ever, mostly to dump stuff on

    Think I could sway her :smile:

    Just don't tell her, see how long it takes to notice.

    My girlfriend didn't know I lowered the car, put new wheels and spacers, even after I pointed it out....

    Bright orange wheels are hard to disguise especially seen as I had them in the living room

    BRILLIANT!

    Right, you've started something there mate. If that was me I would SO want to know what the biggest most obvious mod I could get away with before she noticed was! :smiley:

    When I told my wife I'd ordered bright red wheels for the Clio & said it would really make the car she said she didn't know that the wheels weren't red already! I never told her about my lowering springs & she's never noticed them.

    Brilliant snapshot of the chat there Chris!
    When I got the Mk4 my gf said ‘please don’t ever dare lower it, the last one was so uncomfortable’
    Not a peep since I fitted the Cooksports - I just told her it was ‘suspension’ when the box arrived, and she knows I take the car to my mate’s to fit track related parts.

    Ask no questions; tell no lies :wink:

    Nothing major to report (that means no cage)

    The Clio has been taxed for another 12months :smile:
