Last Friday, as I was riding around in a Volvo S90 with a few coworkers, one of them told a story about his B5 Audi S4. In short, he lost a girlfriend over it, because it was either her or the car. As he’s happily married now, I can assume that he chose right.

Has this happened to you? Was that one mod the straw that broke the camel’s back? Did the car break down one too many times? Were the bucket seats just too damn uncomfortable?
