I'll start us off with two.

Colleague at work who firmly believes their 92k mile Saxo is worth approx £2000.

Another colleague who tells everyone all BMWs are 2.0 litre, its just the power output thats different...

All german cars are RWD - fact.

Oh and the Alfa V6 engine is problematic.

Alfas break down and fall to pieces.

"Are they paying you too much?" No, my car is worth considerably less than your 18k Focus diesel.

'You with your flash cars (!), you get paid too much'

Nice 20k Mondeo you've got there. Worth much now?

I get this all the time when they hear I have an M5. Dont you realise its worth half as much as your Focus/Golf etc.

I think it's economy related too; if you dare drive anything that does less than 30mpg, your name suddenly becomes B.P Esso McShell.

I've no knowledge of the set up myself, however...

non PH type colleague with a MINI. Has run flats and a tyre pressure indicator. Everytime the tyre pressure warning light comes on, there is a reset button, which makes it 'go away'. After about 2 weeks of doing this daily it turns out she actually has a flat tyre.

What do you need a car like that for? You can only go 70 miles an hour.

Bought an N/A car recently, after telling a friend this he said...

"You're not going to fit a dump valve are you?"

Facepalm.

Don't see why you bother washing your car every week, it's just a box to get you from A to B. (His was a box, granted, but it rarely managed to get to B)

"Your spending how much on tyres" when I mentioned that I am fitting some decent rubber rather than Nankang Ditch Finders for 1/3 of the price.

I get it most days off the wife.

My latest response is; "What do you need 30 pairs of shoes for? You've only got two feet"
