    Talking How do you convince your spouse!?

    This thread is 50% for fun and 50% serious.

    I was curious on how some of you sweet talk your significant other into getting new parts ect ect?

    I've been working on my wife for 3 months trying to get an exhaust with no luck.

    Any tips or tricks that could help fellow members would be greatly appreciated!

    Buy her a necklace/earings/ring. Sweetening the pot typically helps me a lot.
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    You don't tell your wife you got car parts. End of story. What she doesn't know won't hurt her.

    Turbo swap and EWG is a little hard to play off once you get on the throttle with her in the car. lol

    Yeah it's too bad my wife works at a bank and has her eyes on the account at all times.

    I've found it's even easier to do neither.

    Find your balls and use them. Seriously.

    My wife knew I liked car parts before she married me and that it wasn't going to change.

    Those wives that consider modifying cars a waste of money aren't incorrect. It's a fun hobby but they're right, it's not free and it's frequently not cheap.

    Bring the exhaust home with a bow on it as a present for her and when she refuses it, ask if you can have it.
