ummm hi :wavey:

I'm currently planning to get my drivers license. What do you think is the most recommendable car to do the practical lessons with.

any tips which cars are comfortably easy to handle? :angel:

Well, the latest Ferrari Modena is a bit rough when going around corners, but otherwise a sound car. The Koenigg F-50 is a nice all round ride, or if you're looking for an ultra lightweight contender, have a look at the Lotus Range.

But my personal favourite is the Super Sport 1100, 1971 model Skoda.

The Big Boss is the MTF car-dealer, send him a PM.

Hope this helps :wavey:.

The car I learned driving with was an Opel Vectra, it was a nice car. After I had gotten my license I even asked my teacher if I could have it but he said no. :sad: By now he has sold it and has bought a brand new Mercedes. Exactly the one that I'm getting in November. I wonder what it's like to do practical lessons with this car...
Actually every car is comfortable in its own way, you have to find out which one's best for you plus, you usually have to stick with the car that your driving teacher has.

Maybe you find a gorgeous guy who is willing to take you for a ride in his beautiful sportscar.

:hug: There are many people don't know how to dry in their whole life. If I'm still living in Hong Kong, I doubt I will know how. ;)

And to answer the thread, where do you live, RogerRocks? I may recommend a Hummer but not sure it's available or not.

With a Hummer, you can mow down everything on the street without a scratch ;)

Except when you need to learn how to parallel park :D

:haha: no I've never seen a Hummer in germany. You think they're available in US driving schools? I think they're really ugly :o

Serious, RR...I encourage you to learn to drive in a manual transmission/straight-shift. I know things are a bit in Germany (I'm presuming that's where you are) than here...most driver's education is taught in the high schools (for free...and sadly only in automatics).

Just remember, easy on both the brakes and gas...and you'll be fine.

Good luck!

Parallel park is a total different set of technique, so RR can learn using another car, like a Mini ;) :angel:

thanks, yes I guess I will learn in a manual car. Actually I was told that's more fun.

I was just comparing different offers today and it seems to be impossible to get the whole thing done for less than 1,000 € here :mad:

I'm not sure if I get what u mean. I was only talking about the driving school, not about buying a car. There won't be a big price difference between learning in a BMW or in a Peugoet

I have to start learning to drive sometime, but my butt problems are preventing me from doing so! And i have had the same problem for two summers, so it has put pay to that!

I did go out a few times in my dads car with him, but i crashed into a wall and wrote the car off :help: also knocked the wall down :D Luckily we were both ok because i was only going about 10 miles per hour trying to turn round :lol: But i havent been in a car since that awful day :eek:

Oooh I know, it cost me a fortune, its so expensive here too (netherlands, a little more than 1,000 euros :rolleyes: ).. But its worth it :)..

LOL and about the car, as long as it drives, its good enough :).. Doesnt really matter what car it is, a drivers school will checked on every once in a while if everything they do is correct, at least if its not an illegal school or anything lol.. hehe but I understand you wanna drive a comfortable car :)

I guess you people are right. I will take whatever car I get. A nice golf would be cool, I think :)

Why should you see a car that eats 40 liters per 100km on German streets :lol:

are they allowed to drive a Hummer in germany? Obviously Germany is by far more sensitive about ecological issues than the USA, so I could imagine it's not easy to get a permission for it.

I have already seen a Hummer in Germany. In my little village it'd be impossible to drive a Hummer because the streets are too narrow.

I drive a Honda. I'm glad for the fact that my car is a low-emission vehicle-good especially if you live or work at a place where emission levels are checked to make sure pollution problems are kept at a minimum.

finally I had my first lesson today. I got a Mercedes A class. I love it so much :hearts: my teacher said I am rather wild. I think his most used words today were "a little slower, please" :D. It's so much fun to drive. My next lesson is in 2 days. Then he will teach me to look into the mirrors :D

Your driving teaching is going to call his insurance agent and ask about life insurance :devil: ;)

or maybe he'll come up with some american football padded uniform for the next lesson :D . No honestly, I'm being very respectful with my co-passengers. Everyone can sit next to me and I will carry them safely. :angel:

I had my 2nd lesson last thursday. It was cool. we went up to 100kmh :D .
I did parralel and backwards parking and so on. I think it worked well. Only I choked the car twice when I accidentally changed from the 1st gear directly to the 4th :tape:
I have my next lesson on tuesday. I hope we will go on the autobahn :)
