Changed the car today; same type and model but younger and fewer miles on the clock. We loved the old car but it was showing hints that expensive replacements (whole steering rack, fuse box) were on the horizon.

Hilarious moment, well I found it hilarious; he's frustrated:
He has a super-modern smartphone, the car has an internal phone system. Will his phone and the car system link via bluetooth? Not on your nelly!
Mine is an ancient Nokia that is never switched on unless I need to call for a taxi when I'm out or I text the daughter to tell her that I'll phone her in the evening from the landline. It is capable of being web-enabled but I've never bothered to choose a server. You get the idea.
So we went out for a meal, I texted the daughter to say I'd phone later and I left it on in my handbag just in case she replied.

Meal over, we returned to the car. He switched the ignition on and INSTANTLY the car display screen sang out its tune and displayed Searching for Phone and within seconds it happily linked to MY phone. "What? What's Merciful Death?" he spluttered. "That's me. It's MY phone," I laugh. We called the daughter using the car system, now paired with Merciful Death, lol.

It's still ignoring his phone. He's not a happy bunny.

But he does like the car :D

Edit: He's been on t'internet onto his phone provider site and had to jump through hoops but now, his phone and the car are talking to each other, ah.
