When you turn wide in parking lots and avoid full lock on pavement( with the 249).

"Scrap it!"
"That's a waste"
"you can't keep it"
"Why not? I'll keep it in storage"
"No! That's stupid!"
"Why? If I can afford to keep it around why not?"
"It's STUPID!"

It pretty much ends up that's the only argument she can give lol.

Our relationship with vehicles is something most women will not understand.

I solved this one a long time ago by stating that my right to own multiple vehicles is akin to her right to own multiple pairs of shoes. When she brings up money, I double down by reaching for other accessories (handbags, jewelry etc.) I win every time, she doesn't even try anymore

When doing city driving and have passengers always ask "why do you drive with one foot on the brake and one on the accelerator?"

When your oil leak marks your parking space. Alright, this is mostly for the I6s, and I've fixed my leaky valve cover. Lol

What!? All it took to fix the oil leaks on my 4.0 was to replace the oil pan gasket (silicone), timing cover gasket and front crank seal, valve cover gasket (silicone), transmission cooler hoses (just the rubber), rebuild the power steering pump, replace the steering gear, both power steering hoses, new trans pan gasket, new trans pump seal, new trans rear seal, new engine rear main seal, new AC compressor, new radiator, reseal the differential, and new wheel cylinders. Not too bad for the last four or five years.
