She asked me to include her on the car insurance and has driven it a couple of times in the country since I bought it ten days ago.
Yesterday she asked if she could take the 'wee car',as she calls it, to work (in London). I agreed and she returned last night with the 'wee car' intact.

Her comment was - 'it's like having a wild animal on a leash!'

So no more taking the 'wee car' to work!
Excellent.

Hmmm...

First of all welcome from Canada....and glad you both are enjoying your wee car.

A couple of things occur to me (based on my limited married life of 30 years..to the same gal I might add).

Condolences on being replaced (wild animal on leash...); try harder!

Often when wife's appetite for wild animal on leash has been whetted, there is often a fringe benefit that accrues (refer to above, and take advantage of the opportunity).

IMHO - encourage her to drive it!

...Canadian and occasional resident of St Johns Wood, NW1. See you for a pint some time?

Good to see you back on the ground Der Flieger hope you didn't get caught with all those 'porn mags' that Air Canada are finding stuffed behind the pilot seats..it was probably when they found the sleeky black SLK pic that was the last straw...disgusting!!

As for the topic of wive's driving the car..I say go for it, the more you have the other 'arf' the more into open top driving they will become...but there again you are already married to woman who appreciates the open road and open top.

Hey! How's the booze biz? Just back from SW France doing research for you....
...and btw, the porn they referred to was stuffed one pic at a time behind the escape rope hatch/door (over one's head). pretty immature is the kindest thing I can say about that.

Agree 100%...let your spouse at the car as much as possible in either seat. SLKing is all about time together, moving down the road, top down!

Ok, ok. Enough about the wives. My husband won't even get in my car. Gripes the entire time about the wind when the top is down. He keeps telling me to stop spending money on that old car. (If he only knew). Little does he know, his pool table is getting kicked out of the barn so my old car can go in and I can buy another one. Seeking for SLK 320 in California!

I see you have the stick in your 230; will you be looking for the same with the 320? I test drove one once; definitely a real hoot to drive. Good hunting...

In my heart, I have always believed that sporty little convertibles should be manual transmissions. I can't imagine driving an automatic! I got a super deal on the 230 because the guy had shown the car to 50 people before me that couldn't drive it. - still hunting
