My parents have borrowed my MINI today. I feel as I would imagine a parent feels on their child's first day at school!! Is this unreasonable??!!? I just know i am going to spend the whole day on tenterhooks in case anything happens to my precious boy!

ARGHHHHHHHHH

Seems perfectly reasonable to me. :) ;)

When my wife took Mini for the first time (after two years of owning it, since it was my car :D :D), I spent the day worrying she (the car, not my wife, lol) would be safe. I worried that nobody would ding her in the parking garage, and that my wife could handle shifting during stop and go rush-hour traffic, and that my wife didn't try to do anything crazy with the car while taking on-ramps, and.... (I wasn't very productive that day.)

Hopefully Mini and your folks all came back safe and sound. :)

Don't get me wrong, I love my wife dearly. It was just that after she got all of the new cars in the past 14 years, Mini was by her own admission my car. And I know my wife is an excellent driver and that should something happen, Mini would keep her safe.

hehe, yeah I'm exactly the same :D

Although in your case at least you are aware of your parents borrowing your car. Mine just disappears for periods of time, along with my mother :rolleyes: :eek:

She always get the lecture too about parking it in a safe place, drive it steady, it's my baby etc etc etc.............prob why she just takes it now without me knowing lol

Glad to see I'm not the only one who is/was so mini possesive :D:D

She's already informed me that when the MCSC shows up, she WILL be driving it more than once every two years, lol.

My wife's folks are coming in a week - in the past we have given them the keys to our car. Yesterday my wife says, I think we should rent a car for my folks. I was thinking it, but never would have said it myself.
