Keep or sell ?

Post by miller1098 » Mon 11 Mar, 2013 00:46

I'm feeling so confused , just dropped my daughter off at collage it's approx 1/12 hours away so we rolled down in the Z,any excuse, lovely drive.Ok so far so good ,but now things started to fall apart,I don't know if it was being amongst a lot of young people but I had the feeling that I was 20 again and drove accordingly .i chose the scenic route home ,and for some20 minutes I drove the Z as fast if not faster than I've ever driven the Z.I feel so bad I never usually drive like that,the trouble is I enjoyed it so much that when I stopped to put the most expensive shell fuel in , I pulled out of the filling station And tested the 0-60 time .five minutes later I was in Burger King "I don't really do burgers"took it out and sat in the Z because I'd much rather sit in there than in bk ,forgot to pick up napkins ,dropped fries all over ,greasy hands on everything,really didn't care.Drove the rest of the way home in much the same way,haven't felt so young in years or so connected to a car,since I had a Mini Cooper in my youth.Now the problem arises,this can't go on,I've tasted forbidden fruit and I don't know if I can resist it,I may have to sell the car.What do u guys do?

You go steady Miller 1098 or the next symptoms are that you start playing continuously with an expensive IPhone and start wearing those low-slung, hipster trousers that show yer underpants! :D

Don't worry about it. By the time she's been at College for 3 years, you'll be so poor that you'll have to sell it! Dilemma solved.

Indulge yourself, I play with mine as often as I can :D

Go out on a cruise in a convoy of Zeds and then you'll really feel exhilerated. Even if its not a quick drive its great to look in your mirror and see a line of Zeds and see Zeds in front as well.
You know you want to so just go out and do it. :D

Thanks guys but i dont know if your helping here, however they say confession is good for the soul ,I think driving the Z is but in the spirit of "iv started so ill finish"as I was nearing home last night I drove into the car park of an unit my friend has and switched the traction control off "you know there's gonna be trouble " and left 1mm of tyre and 2 lovely doughnuts outside his loading bay.whats my penance for this sin?
