My wife had an operation a few years ago and we had to use a wheel chair for a month or so and the amount of pricks that park in these spaces to save them walking too far or because they value their car is disgusting.

If your not disabled then you deserve to have your car keyed!
Nobody deserves to get their car keyed, that's a real chicken **** thing to do , if you haven't got the balls to stand toe to toe with them walk away.

Just out of interest did your wife get a disabled badge for her temporary disability because it took a long time and a lot of forms to get one for my mother in law.

When I was about 25, I was in town (Bolton in case you didn't know) and these two girls saw this car go past and literally wet their knickers, 'ohhh, look a Lancia!!'. So I got myself a Lancia Gamma Coupe and none girls ever wet their knickers....

Mine was a cool Gamma, the ones the girls saw was a crappy Beta....

Are you actually disabled? If your not disabled then you deserve to have your car keyed!
Somebody keyed my car I guess I know who it is now. I am not disabled. Thankfully I am a healthy 26 year old man. Actually this was at the secure parking at Holiday Inn in Dijon. There were no spaces when I arrived late at night. I asked the reception and they said it was fine for me to park there until a non disabled spot became free. Usually with the big QP6 I always find myself looking for parking for atleast 15 mins. This is a big beast at 5.2 meters long and 2.1 meters wide.

I had a 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham, it's was 19' 11" long, that extra inch for 20' irked me and I could have done it with a Lincoln Continental spare wheel boot, but I was already on the edge of US tackiness, so I left it.

I've been finding myself watching Henry Catchpole video reviews and looking at these just this week. Great VFW and well done you for choosing. I think they are great. Just a bit too pricey for me at the moment 2nd hand for what I want to spend unfortunately.
I do think they'll hold their money quite well , the facelifted car is pushing 50k now which can only lift the values of the pre facelift cars.
The price has gone up because the 1st gen didn't have all the driver assist **** so only got a 3* ncap rating
Noting to do with how it performs in a crash

I didn't say I would key it! I know keying a car is disgusting, I just said someone who takes up a disable space would not have a foot to stand on if it was keyed for this reason. My wife actually worked for the council at that time so she probably knew which strings to pull to get a temporary disabled badge.

I'd never key a car even if they did park in a disabled spot. I personally wouldn't park in that spot just in case someone less able than me reuired it. I'd walk because I can.

That was a joke no body keyed my car. Like I said already I arrived late night to the Holiday Inn and the parking lot was full. I'd paid for the secure parking at the hotel, so obviously I am going to park in the secured parking lot of the Holiday Inn. The reception gave permission for me to park there till a non disabled spot was free. I am not going to obviously park my car in some side street off the hotel premises, especially since I've paid for parking at the hotel.

As far as I'm aware there's no such thing as a temporary disabled badge , I found that out when my wife had Guillain-Barré syndrom in 2013 , because she was expected to recover and wasn't in receipt of any disability benefit being paralysed didn't qualify her.

However there are people that decide they're disabled because they have a broken leg so park in disabled spaces even though they're not entitled to

Perhaps they should get their cars keyed also

I can see at least 4 they've missed.

We'll be on to hyphens next (sit-down meal...). <Rubs hands together>
