I think I messed up...

I think that I have lost my brand new jeep for good... I taught the other half how to drive stick over the last couple of days. Now she wants to drive it constantly! What am I to do? I really can't complain considering that my other car is not a POS, it's a BMW 330ci. It's not my jeep! Any ideas on how to get my jeep back guys?

X3, although the stickers a good ideas too!


The rubicon is a 29 km. river in northern Italy. "Crossing the rubicon" is a popular idiom meaning to pass a point of no return. Originating from Ceasaer's 49 BC crossing of the river, which was considered an act of war

It's an E46. 72k reasonably trouble free. The only major repair it has needed was a steering rack about 12k ago due to the lovely potholes all over philly that she can't seem to avoid...

On another note, I need to get her either on the trails with a group or to jeep beach so that I can justify all of the mods I want to do!

Bring her out to the "nubie ride" this coming weekend. Check the Northeast section for details.

Lift it, so she wouldn't be able to get in easy on a day to day basis.

However, she made me buy her "must have" vehicle instead. But it was well worth the price

Don't feel bad, our JK is actually her JK, I only get to drive it if she absolutely HAS to use to minivan to cart around extra kids or her grandma or something like that. I tried the whole "lift it" trick and it didn't work, she loves it more and she's 5'11" so I guess I need to go about 6" lift instead of 3"......
