Every young man and woman out there that has a burning passion for cars knows that when purchasing his/her first ride they have to go through a tedious process, one that might seem redundant at first but has it’s logic behind it.
The thing is, being a rookie behind the wheel is no joking matter. People die everyday on the road and some times, it only takes a millisecond to turn an average road trip into a drama. We all want a fast and powerful car the moment we have a driver’s license in our wallet but that’s not necessarily the way to go.

Some people learn faster than other and soon, the rookie that barely learned how to drive will become better and better behind the wheel. That’s when the real problems start.

In some cases, the confidence is justified but on other occasions, some kids are over confident, leading to dangerous situations. If you’re one of the former, you’ll want to get a faster car to have a little more fun.

Then the parents step in. They might be extremely protective and won’t allow you not only to drive a fast car but to buy one in the first place. How do you get past that bump? Well, the guys from Vehicle Virgins might have an idea or two.

They put together a rather funny clip showing you how to convince your parents to let you drive your dream car (and possibly buy it). The key in this whole equation are post-its.

You know, those little pieces of paper with glue at one end that everyone uses to leave messages on the fridge? Well, it turns out they can have other uses as well, such as masking the car you’re actually driving.

As you’re going yo see below, the idea is to cover the M5 on the trunk boot, the M logos on the front doors and so on so that nobody knows (especially your parents) what you are actually driving.

It’s a funny idea that will never work for a couple of reasons. One of them is the engine this thing has. In the video below you’ll hear the legendary S62 4.9-liter V8 that the E39 M5 used to come with. Unless your parents are deaf, you definitely won’t get away with it, even if you completely strip the badges off your car. That's only the tip of the iceberg, though, as the guys also provide a couple of nice excuses for you in case you ever need something like that.

Another solution?

Maybe the best solution would then be different. Maybe if you saved up your own money and bought your own insurance, such headaches would not exist. And that’s a big maybe!

In that case you probably won’t go that fast anyway because you won’t have any gas money... Still worth a shot, though.
