    Clearly, to many, for example those involved in motorsports and touring, cars are more than mere means of transport.

    Long time! :wave:

    More comfortable and mos def safer than a bike, Car is preferred for adventurous activities. Me thinks!
    But yeah I have yet to understand why some men are so crazy about their cars? Lolz

    My best friend in high school (basically a Ferris Bueller before the movie came out) had a ~1983 Alfa Romeo Spyder (well it was his dad's - no doubt he was a "The Graduate" fan). Cool looking car..but that was about it. I didn't feel it was particularly fast (actually it was pathetically slow and the shifter was in the dash, the car would lean in curves, and the brakes sucked) Plus it was only a 2 seater so this wasn't going to be a "grab the gang together and cruise" car. It has a not-so-great reputation for tons of problems.

    It did influence me into a Need For Speed attitude.

    What is the Islamic punishment if your wife ruins the car seats by spilling drinks?

    Any easier option? Petrol prices are enough already to deter this.

    Vacuuming out the whole car in a French Maid outfit. :D

    Alfas were good designs but made horribly. The Graduate made the image just like what Boorman did for BMW adventure bikes.

    That could be just the start. I need something more deterrent.

    Unfortunately i never owned any of them. I was on a working class student budget, couldn't afford the insurance/fuel for these.

    When i could, decent ones are rare to find. If i ever don't have a long commute, i will buy an E30 325i.

    Using a product like Spot Shot gives great results on upholstery:
