No and no.
No no no no no no and no ..................................
i hate to be ****** but stf please, there's an identical thread in the OT section
"OK valet guy...if the car won't start pull fuse three then crank it. Let it die then reinstall the fuse. Please make sure it is not in gear when you crank her over as it will happily jump forward on you...wait a sec...give me those damn keys back...I see the wood down there."
No/No and mine is JUST a 308
Remember "Feriss Buellerss day off" .....................
Yes, never had a problem.
i think you should read what happened to DrStrangelove's 348. just the thought of that happening to my car makes me shudder
People can barely drive automatic, let alone stick.
NO $*&%$@! Way
No way. As a matter of fact, nobody apart my wife can drive it. Let alone a complete stanger.
Just to be plain, when the car was serviced the mechanic (whom anyway I fully trust) had clear instructions NOT to run the car when everything was finished.
I went there afterhour and tested the car myself.
I do NOT valet it... but I do let my mechanic drive it.
I park it myself, tip the Valet and if they insist on the keys they get my "Valet Key", one that was left over from one of my cars and has a Horse on it. Comes on a nice Ferrari Keychain and makes them happy. They can not even get in.
Don't forget to give them your phone number in case they have to move it!
Well, every once in a while, my mechanic let's me drive my car.
Definitely a no no!
pay a lil extra and park it yourself in a nice spot...that's what i always do.
I do. Generally they only back it up to the front door so they don't go too far anyway.
I might...if the Valet tips me.
When I get mine, well, it depends if the lead valet is around. They're the one who will give the most consideration to your car. I worked for FoD as their only valet so I've had my fair share of f-cars to park/drive but I wouldn't let most of the valets I know park my own Ferrari, just because the car is so different from the Boxsters they're used to.
Hmmm let's see - should I let a total stranger drive my $300,000 car with F1 transmission that emits the distinct smell of burning clutch at creep speeds if you edge it along too slowly? That's a tough call.
i would not let someone valet my pickup truck let alone my 308.
Remember Ferri Bueller's Day off movie??
Yes, but only at familiar restaurant. At my dad's favorite restaurant the valet hit a car he said pulled out in front of him. Bumper/area around wheel well need repainting.
Still valet it though! (well, usually, they don't take it far. They might just leave it out front for display...
Both of my sons, in their early twenties, have extensive experience as valet parkers in S Calif.
I never did let anyone valet my cars, and after their stories, I now know I was absolutely correct.
For example, valets seem to somehow know that car "X" is faster than car "Y".
