my son is going to cost me £100 because he had a go in my m5 (with out me knowing) and put a hole in the left rear tire he told me that he was just moving it out the drive so he could get in the garage and hit a bolt this story was sh1t because I had a mpg of 22.4 when I left to go on holiday and when I got back I had 18.4 so he must of been like shit of a shovel to get a mpg like that new come friday

When I have children and a M5 (I plan on getting the M5 first), my children will never get to drive the thing. The M5 is too badass to be driven around by anyone's kids.

Don't tie him, make him hold onto the trunk's deck lid lip where it meats the rear whindshield.
Do it once every year, untill he can hold onto it after he gets his\her liscence, then he can drive it.

Install a secret code thingy in there too like the transporter had.


Hide your keys, young drivers + an assfast high preformance sports car= BAD!!!
I know, I wrecked my dad's 80,000 jag because I underestimated the supercharged V8 and hardcore LSD in the back on bald tires and a wet fucking road.
I'll post the pics if you guys wanna see, I power slid into a truck during a fishtail.

Haha, I've never driven a car with LSD even. I wish I had one too! Kaaz has a good 2 way LSD conversion for the stock LSD in later differential models of the e30. But yeah.

me?

my car's the white one.



more here the guy in the business clothes is my dad, you can obviously tell he's pissed just by his stance...

BTW, my dad did the skid marks on the garage at an earlier date, left tire needed some air :P
Also, it's all fixed now, it was just body damage, thank god.

I underesimated it's real power, let it loose, and fucked up. Don't let your kids fuck with a car with more than 200 horeses to the wheels unless they are with you for the first time in an empty parking lot or a track, Get them experience BEFORE they experiment on their own... Besides, it'll be a bonding moment.
If you do get a car for them with more than 200 horses, be sure you are able to wire the traction control on permanently (IE: remove the button and hide the wires to the button, and re-install it after they know what they are doing.)
Completely fair, they have their engine power, and they arn't allowed to burn\spin out.
I was lucky, I could have been dead, I could have killed other people, other children, I could have killed someone else and I stayed alive and be charged with vehicular manslaugher for the rest of my life... Oh, and I could have totaled the car :P

Yah, I'm definately not saying be a hardass parrent... That's your choise.
If you give em 250 horses, they could kill themselves if they try to burnout or drift. At least take the ability to turn off traction control. They can still accelerate, but it's a lot harder to break loose and loose control.

Then teach them how to drive without traction control in a controlled environment.

when I have a kid, hopefully a son, I'm going to make him build up his car himself, so he'll have some goddamn respect for it. I put almost a whole year and $6000 into my first new car and I practically had snipers posted to take out birds who flew overhead, lest they might shit on it.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

Don't punish him directly. Because he didn't directly ask to use the car.

Remove one of the wheels off his car, or go do some mad donuts in it and yell at him for buring off the tires. And ground him for a month because of that. Then sometime at a later date when he's like "dad can I use the car for prom" be like "nope, because of that one time you took it out and got a flat tire.
