If you have self confidence, act like a man and treat her well it won't matter if you drive at all!

Give it a shot!

The bigger and the more gadget-filled, the better; one that will conjure up the image of luxury car. E.g., most women really neither know nor care whether you have a 260hp V6 or 340hp V8 under the hood, but they do notice your car has nice, soft leather seat that blows cool or hot air from the tiny holes with the push of a button.

After thinking this over, I guess a Z4 could do the trick.

I can't remember the last time I saw a guy driving a car with the top down. It's most always a female thing. They see it as a joy toy.

Well, I do get jealous everytime I go to the clubs. MY friends and I are the guys at the back of the line. Then you see some guy in a nice car driving up, getting valet parking, and out comes a model looking girl. I bet many of you all get that same feeling.

Well, you've already told us what kind of girl you're looking for. Now you just have to determine the price.

I don't remember the last time I drove my convertible with the top up! (in addition to my BMW, I have a 1965 Buick Skylark GranSport convertible).

Okay, but if you took a poll, overwhelmingly-females outnumber males driving convertibles. They just like 'em.

I'd prefer if they didn't see my car first. My rule of thumb: if she likes you because of your car -> she's expensive.

Side note: I only take dates to restaurants where meals are less than 15 bucks. If you gotta throw around the cash, you're doing it wrong.

Shes probably a rental....the woman I mean. It is vegas after all.

I take first dates out in my 89 toyota truck, and to a cheap local meal. Only a few dates later does the bmw show up.

Lol... honestly i've gotten woman off of the car I drive. Then again I don't need my car to get them either. But there is some truth to woman being attracted to guys in attractive cars, anyone who thinks otherwise must not be driving something that attracts females.

But you never want to take a girl seriously that you attracted with your car alone.

How do you know what she's attracted to? Your car? Your money? Just you? Can you believe anything they tell you?

It usually comes out at some point where she says "that is a really nice car" or something along those lines. Any girl that i thought was attracted to my car was probably a one night stand type situation after a party or something. No money spent on them or time invested just she saw me getting in or out of my car and wanted to talk to me because of it.

Best thing is keep everything a secret. No car, no job, no financial situation until you are satisfied she likes YOU and you alone. Then, you can show her the other stuff.

I used to meet my girlfriend using public transportation. I didn't reveal anything about myself for quite a while. She and I got along fine. So we got married.

Who wants to be Donald Trump? Does he lie awake at night wondering, "is she attracted to anything about me as a person or is it all about the money?" He will never know. Maybe he doesn't even care.

I think any BMW would impress a lot of females. And if you buy one used, they won't know that. A lot of 2007 and 2008 3 Series cars look like new cars. Most females don't know a 328i from a 335i.
