The stereo parts seems a bit extream. I'd be more worried about having friends in the car...All the stats show teenagers are about 10 times more likely to have a serious accident if they have other teens in the car... Especially at night.

True, and fortunately that's a law here in GA. Must have her permit for a full year before she can get her license, and the first six months after that means no friends in the car and no driving at night. Of course I'm a little stricter than that. And on the stereo thing, haven't you seen teenagers dancing and rockin away while behind the wheel? I mean full on slam dancing with the seat, windows, wheel, etc. Dodging them is something of a sport around here, most random drivers I've ever seen. A car is a weapon, not a place to rock out, and she's going to learn that.

^this. I literally thought this one guy was going to get out of his car and savagely beat me because I stalled on a hill when I first got my ltw flywheel and new clutch.

Default Re: Teaching my teenage daughter to drive

the first time my then 15 yo son drove a car on bitumen was in my euro M3...on a racetrack, and got well over 100mph on the 2nd lap
it was a driver training day, and I am an instructor with local BMW club, and he had plenty of experience in a paddock in his E21 manual prior

I learnt to drive when I was 5, in a 1926 Buick we had while my father was restoring a 1927 Buick (which I still have)

I let my wife give it a few goes on my clutch. She did okay and now drives the V8 standard S4 as her DD.

Default Re: Teaching my teenage daughter to drive

Yesterday was fun. We went back to the big church lot and practiced stop/start and parking. She still doesn't quite have the hang of parking...good thing the lot is empty. After a few practice sessions she got a little cocky with the clutch and started letting it out way too fast...stall stall stall stall... LOL. I finally got her to slow down and yes, slip the clutch a bit more. Also worked on hill starts and she finally got a good smooth one after a bunch of stalls - I told her that's the toughest one to learn and she cheered when she finally got a good start.

Only hiccup was a combination start/turn (simulating an intersection). She had a little trouble getting rolling and forgot to turn...managed to stop with the front spoiler about 6" from the curb. But I loved the fact her instinct was to slam the brakes and not freeze, great job. Otherwise a good hour of practice, we'll go back out today. She says she loves learning a skill while her friends are learning to cruise. I'm really proud of her. And if the clutch gets burnt or the spoiler gets munched, so what. Just means I get to buy new stuff.

I told her once she really gets the hang of stop/start/turn in the parking lot, we'll tackle the neighborhood. Maybe in a week or two.

Manual = busy hands and feet = lots harder to do stupid things like text, dance, party, whatever. Driving means paying attention to driving. BTW that also means NO STEREO in her car, and if I ever catch her with her iPod rockin' out, she loses the privilege.

But if she does well, she will be able to drive an M3 or a 308...sometimes. I think that's a decent tradeoff.
I am with you on that. I drove 2 seaters from the getgo for a reason (besides having a small one to compensate for), i didnt want distractions in the car with me.

My little princess already told me the M-ster is hers when she gets a permit in 5 years. I wont have too much of a problem with her in such a small car with a stick, making it tougher to do all the things you mention, and nearly impossible to haul a few drunk freinds around.

She will be like the "uptown girl" in vacation, only instead of your 308 she will be in the m-ster. I am scared!

Autox, and DE are on her calendar whether she likes it or not.
