On my son's one month birthday, I decided to introduce him to the world of ///M Power. :biggrin: I took him over to the M5 and put him in the drivers seat.

:thumbsup: He seemed pretty excited!!

I spent the next couple of minutes explaining the instrument cluster and how the orange lights go away as the car warmed up. I showed him the trip computer. He seemed pretty interested!!!

I then had to tell him that he was too young to drive. He didn't seem very happy. :sad1:

I had to break the news to him that he wouldn't be able to drive until he was 18, and that it would be a while before he could drive daddy's car.

He didn't take it very well. :crying2:


Although I did order him one of these today:

:byebye: Cute kid and great post.
I'd cry too if you told me I couldn't drive "the family car" for 18 more years!!! Torture
In a year or two you could buy him one of the battery operated children's cars! :M5launch: They sell those at the dealers. Cute story by the way!!
Great story, I have a 6 month old daughter. I also had to break the news to her 18 years until she drives:D
hehe, classic.
Speaking as a dad whos daughter started driving last year, enjoy the next 16-18 years. Once your kid starts to drive, you can look back and reminise on how worry free life used to be.

Take this on faith, in 16-18 years you will know that faith was not misplaced.
Man, your son looks like a natural heel+toer - I think he's practicing the steps there to get the muscle memory going.

Sweet :)
Cute post.
Kids look cute around cars! for some reason.

I have a 3 year old niece and she is affixed with the colour of my car!
Congrats Nadeem - cute baby!

Reminds me of when my oldest son first got behind the wheel....

Thanks Nadeem!!! Great pics and story! And it proves you've become an expert diaperer too--no leaks on the seat :haha:

Thanks everyone for the comments. My wife and I are really excited to be first time parents.

(Although those 2:30am diaper changes are tough)
Cute pics and story......don't worry, another year or so get him one of these. :haha: My son is hooked and watches F1 races with me on the weekends! Gotta start 'em early :M5thumbs:


PS - Congrats on your first child! We just had our second, and she's 3 months old now. Totally know what you mean by middle-of-the-night diaper changes :) Let me warn you, should you have a second, remember 1+1 does NOT= 2 (more like 10) when it comes to effort, sleepless nights, worries, etc. But it's all good....all worth it when you see their smiling faces! lovelove

Great pics, and wonderful captions to go with them! My poor dad got a bit gray hair the day I passed my drivers license exam, and then went bald when I got my pilots license... hiha He kept mumbling something about "you used to poop your pants and now you drive cars and fly planes..."
