Sympathy with you there mate.: My Dearest had trouble when we first got our Sele.' Sometimes she wasn't sure whether she was coming, or going with the gear selection. She kept thinking it was a manual box I reckon!

Even on a corner, a good Dentwizard-type guy can do amazing things if the paint is unbroken and the metal not stretched. Check it out before you go to a bodyshop, you might get away with an 80 fix.

Tsk Tsk too bad. Just teach her the proper and safer way of driving. But shouldn't you be glad that she's still alright...

Re: Never lending my car to my wife again!

Sorry to hear that Goonersele

I am usually on the other end of the conversation, wife says that whenever I drive I am highly likely to get into trouble with the car

Bad luck, I'd present her with the bill if I were you - or tell her she has to be nice to you
