Just for FUN!

1) Do not turn off the car w/o turning off any electrical components (i.e. A/C, Radio)

2) NO FOOD only Drinks (YOU SPILL YOU CLEAN IT)

3) No Slamming the door either when closing it.

and finally but not least...DO NOT MESS WITH MY CAR

and the MOST IMPORTANT ONE

DO NOT LET THE WIFE DRIVE YOUr 6.



What are your PET Peeves?

I just put my girlfriend and best friend on a food restriction while in my car, drinks with lids only for them. I recently cleaned my interior and found an M&M ground in to the carpet in the rear passenger seat footwell. I managed to get it out, but still

So:
1. Food and people being careless in my car with it.
2. People that rub the paint when the car is dirt or write in the car when damp.
3. When my friend puts his dirtyass shoes on my dash board.
4. People that mess with the vents... I like having them set symmetrically! I'm OK if you need the air pointed a different way, but if you're not using, don't move em!

I hate the dog hair that gets inside it. Black Interior and white dog don't mix.
My dog rarely rides in the car, but the hair still manages to transfer from my clothes and get stuck to the seats.
I love them both, so I guess I'll just have to keep dealing with it.

I hate when people leave trash in my car that's probably my top one.

And I know that the A/C controls can be a little tricky to someone that's never used them, but I hate when someone gets in the car and is like "how do you adjust the temp in here" while they're turning all of the knobs.
I'll answer your question, then you can mess with the knob... but don't ask the question, if you're already on an Indiana Jones hunt to find the answer.

You can't kill me because I have perfect hair.

Trash bugs me too, but is included in food for me because all the trash I find is food related.

Oh, and why is this post in 'Why The 6?' Time for general forum...

A start... I have actually had relationships end over my car.

1) People who put their feet on dash, windowsill, or door panels.
2) Opening or closing the hatch using the spoiler.
3) Not clomping off shoes before entering
4) Clomping shoes off ON THE CAR before entering.
5) Carelessness with food or drink in the car.
6) Channel or CD track surfers.

Nando, are you telling me to turn off the climate and radio before turning the car off? That would drive me nuts.

Hmm, I'm pretty laid back person but don't f w/ my car!

1) Never EVER touch my stereo. If you want to play w/ the stereo get in your own car.
2) Don't touch my AC/Heater. If I'm not hot/cold you shouldn't be either.
3) No eating in the car. (Does not apply to me since I'm not a dirty ass slob)

Not sure that I have any others?

1) People leaving trash in the car (pick your shit up you lazy heartless bastards!)
2) People bouncing around and horseplaying when riding in the backseat
3) People spilling stuff and not saying anything about it (I'd rather clean it up right away than find it later)
4) People screwing with the vents, I'm like Mazda_Gremlyn with the symmetricalness
5) People who change the track or station when a song I like is on (this warrants instant death)

1) Wipe large debris off your shoes before entering (like leaves and twigs).
2) Symmetrical vents
3) Passengers must wash their hair regularly and have a healthy scalp. (I can tell when they don't because their dandruff shows very easily on black cloth!)

1. Never slam the doors of my ride.
2. Never push open the doors with your feet in my ride.
3. Never offer me as a free ride to others in my ride.
4. Do I need to say this? NEVER SMOKE IN MY RIDE!!!
5. Never use my rear view mirror as a "mirror" in my ride.
6. Never speak ill of my ride, while in my ride.
7. Never drive my ride because if you do, it will not be my ride. It will be our ride.
And my ride can't have that... Can it?

RESPECT THE RIDE AND THE RIDE WILL RESPECT YOU!

Don't Drink the Kool Aid.

2-4 absolutely! As for 6, well I'm the only one that ever touches the radio unless I specifically ask someone else to do it. The spoiler thing drives me nuts.
