This is how you am too. Everyone has been respectful about it.

I am more careful these days. I used to be pretty relaxed, but after a few bad experiences, I don't offer and take requests case by case. Usually stay close and keep a close eye on things. That usually keeps everything safe and friendly.

Sometimes you do have to say no. Had to tell my Dad "no" when I first bought my car. A few days after getting it home he called and said, "Hey I need to come by and get your Lamborghini. I am going to drive it over to a friends house for the day. He wants to see it." Me: "Uhhh.... no Dad." Explained to him insurance concerns and the fact that it was a really big request. Felt a little bad, but come on Dad. He has driven it many times since, but he doesn't get to swing by and take it whenever he wants.

I'm "always" getting the request for people wanting to sit in my Murcielago. I don't get it, I would never ask if I could sit in someone's most prized possession for fear of scratching or damaging something.

If it is a kid and they are wearing clothes that won't scratch the leather, I don't usually have a problem with it.

If it is a woman, same thing if they are not wearing something that will scratch the leather.

Dudes that I don't know, sorry you aren't getting in it.

Basically I just say sorry but the leather is delicate and it is not an easy car to get in and out of without scratching the leather if you aren't familiar with it. They seem to understand and are fine with that.

I charge each of them $10 to sit in the passenger side and $15 to sit in the driver's side. If they want a photo, that's fine. If they want a ride, it depends on how long of a ride and how hot or not, with higher prices for longer rides and lower prices for eye candy

I try not to say no
as long as someone is polite, they can't hurt my seat by sitting in it. They get way more out of the experience, so why not

When I was 16, I met an owner of a Murcielago at a car show. I struck up a conversation with him about the car and it turned out we were both on the same Lamborghini forum (me as a dreamer). After spending quite some time talking, I asked about sitting in the car, and he let me. I can say that experience definitely help motivate me to become the person I am today.

This thread reminds me of the Lotus forum I used to be active on.

It's a car. Let an 8 year old sit in it and be happy.

People buy these cars swearing up and down they didn't do it, in part, because they like the attention, bask in the attention, then get irritated at getting attention.

My biggest problem hasn’t been strangers asking. I was with my best friend at lunch and when we came out to the car a woman was walking around it. I had told my friend that he could drive it back to the office, so he was by the driver’s side door while I went to the passenger side. I was only partially paying attention when the woman asked my friend if he would take a picture of her with the car which is no big deal. But the next thing I know he’s opening the door and ushering her in “because it will be a better picture.” WHAT!!!! This woman had been waiting at the bus stop and she smelled pretty bad and was quite disheveled looking. I’m sure you know the end of the story....I’m still looking for a new best friend.....haha.

That's a great story and I completely understand. In my comment when I said "dude" I was referring to a full grown man. Someone like who you were at that time I don't really have a problem with as long as they are not wearing anything that will scratch the leather.

I just have a problem with a full grown man that I don't know asking to sit in my car. I guess it's just me but I find it weird.
