Hi guys
I have driven a large chunk of my (close) friends cars and they have driven mine.

What is the edicate in asking or should you not ask?

Also what is the thought in taking each other cars for drives?

Just don't ask... If they offer they offer, if not, bad luck.

Also... Edicate?

I think he meant etiquette.

On the question - ask away, whats the worst a mate could say - 'f*ck no - i think you're a clown'
C'mon, do it!

With my close friends its never questioned, if I need to borrow or drive their car, I ask and get given & vice versa.

Personally I wouldn't ask people if I could drive their car, especially when the owner has worked and saved hard to buy their car

I think if someone were a true mate they wouldn't ask to drive their mates exotic if they knew it would make them feel uncomfortable.

What etiquette?  Isn't asking this like saying "I don't really know my friends that well"?

Dont ask at all , if it's offered and you want to drive it take it down a straight piece of road around a corner then hand it back and don't drive it again, it's not yours.

Please pass onto my "buddies"

Insurance has messed it up for me now but I've let several people drive my car in the past.  Ash drove my first Gallardo on our first Sunday run I think.  He was very careful.  Up in the NT, he took the wheel again and delighted in passing a bunch of caravans like they were standing still (back in the no speed limit days of course), only to immediately arrive at the servo to face them all. :o

Waz drove my SE on a Sunday run (the Blanchtown run?) and quickly discovered just how fast a Lambo is - it would be great to find the vid of that.  He also drove the Murci soon after I got it.

Leburbor drove my M5 up the freeway with me and on the way back, took an exit, got a bit sideways and nearly cleaned up surprised a  cop who was stopped on a bridge.  We kept just peddling and fortunately didn't see him again.

Then there was the time I dropped Ash at the Heysen tunnels with a video camera - but I'm getting off topic now.

Ah, memories.....   :D
