Car Insurance

If, like Bernhard Stadlinger, you are feeling lucky after a night out on the town, and manage to get it on with a young lady you’ve met at the disco (well, he is German!), then you may well face the same problem as him.

After all one black VW Golf looks much like another, and if, like our 24 year old Bavarian chum and his unnamed lady friend, you choose the wrong one, you could be in trouble. When the middle aged owner of the car came back and found the windows a bit steamy, she called the police, and poor old Bernhard found himself with some explaining to do.

Now if only he had fitted a smart bodykit, mad exhaust, bling alloys, and some window tinting to his car he would have had no trouble finding it. You’ve got to wonder, though, how it was that, according to the press reports, his key fitted the locks on both cars.

    >i was at a freinds wedding in germany once, and after a vodka face off with the (russian) father of the bride i was a little worse for wear. i dont know what happened for the rest of the night, but i woke up in the back seat of some germans VW polo 10 miles away. slowly realising my conundrum, i shuffled away nonchulantly away, only for a huge boxhead to get in the car moments later. you could see him sniffing the pungent air, wondering why the polo was unlocked and the radio on. i can only assume that my golf keys must have fitted, either way i put my suit jacket back on and retired to a park bench for the morning.

    >It happened to me, too, about 25 years ago (when keys security was a bit more lax then than now). In my case it was my 1973 Ford Cortina Mk2 in a multi-storey car park and I forgot where it was, and found my key fitting what I thought was my car – and then the lady owner came back just as I was getting in. Very embarassing, but she believed me, luckily!
