I am a car nut as well and I do drop hints here and then to warm up the waters

I do have to slow down, in the past 4 years ... 4 cars have lived in my garage (a Jag, a M3 and 2 Z4's they are now history) two new once are there now and I must say they get along fine with one another

I had to be very nice to my wife on the phone (when I got my first M3) I needed her to arrange for a cash transfer form my bank and ship my plates from a previous car I sold I too could afford it, otherwise I would have not done it.

At that point it was entirely at my discretion what to get. If I'd gotten something highly impractical or outrageously expensive (e.g., if car cost > wife's vacation home cost), it might have been a problem, but otherwise I got a blank check.
Sounds like you can have your cake and eat it too ... great position to be in

Way to go, like I said before when I was on a project ... phoned her told her I got you a nice gift .... and went on oh btw for myself I got a M3, oh she said what's that? a car I said ... she in an angry voice ... not another car, oh it's a 2 year old car and you can drive my car now when I get home ... then quickly changed the subject ... I'm such a devil yes I know

Well you are half way there then, mine would never leave me and if she does I'll keep all the cars
