Would you accept a new car as a gift?
Posted 16 February 2004 - 02:10 PM
You say you have enough money to buy a basic type of car but they're talking about the BMW. Would it make you happier (certainly make hubby happier!) if they paid the difference between what you were planning to spend on a car and the BMW? Then, hubby gets the car he wants, the PILs feel like they've helped you out (even if you don't want or need it), you get the car (doesn't really matter what kind it is?) without hurting their feelings by turning down their "custom".
As you're parking it on the street, the BMW might actually be the better option in terms of alarms and security devices.

I'm sure its some trolling virus thing trying to get us to go to the websites at the bottom of the post.
FWIW - we are two cars, two kids and a new apartment away from 2004. LOL!

I thought you'd managed to revive some old members there Nat. I was wondering why they hadn't ventured any where else on the forum! LOL
Exactly what I thought!
