My GF has a mini cooper. She never revs it over 3,000rpm and generally potters around. She regularly tells me how she'd like a Cooper S!

Its not just women though.. A few people on here ask about converting their 318d to an M3!!! Sacrilege!

I'm sure there are more than a few people on here whose wives/girlfriends have a car on the basis of you having chosen it. For example the guy who just added a BBK to his wifes 335i - I doubt she would notice the difference!!
doesnt the "guy" you speak of, own a custom exhaust fabricating, and vehicle modification establishment? How would you doubt that she wouldnt notice? She could be a better driver than you.... but then you probably would doubt that..... Hmmm phillip?... philli pie?

She could well be - I just remember he said he does these things to his wifes car without her minding too much. Its his hobby (or profession) not hers.

funny thread I find that my mrs gets given way out of side roads etc etc more then i do when shes driving either the x5 or her 335. Strange that lol, but i reckon she just smiles!! (although she hardly takes the X5 out).

The other funny thing she actually said was when she is in the 335 most blokes want to race or tailgate her!!, but shes not exactly shy with the right pedal lol
