“Out of desperation tears in the eyes: shame, I’m really going to take away rights! And suddenly the COP turns to me and so with the squint asked: “And Fyodor Dobronravov know? Can you call him?” Was not a fan of mine, and Fedin,” says the star of the show “6 shots” Irina Medvedeva.

To change your BMW-three years I decided just because the woman in Moscow it is better to go on a new car with a warranty. If the car more than three years, it starts to break down, has to disappear in the services, and I have no time for this… well, deciding to change the “three-ruble note”, I was trying to figure out what I want. Not a sedan, all wheel drive, diesel, bright interior and below the level of comfort, as in “treshke”. I remember that was shocked to find out that the high beam it turns on automatically!.. And color wanted not black. My first car, a black Audi A3, was never perfectly clean. You just left the car wash and got stuck in traffic — and more to wash… And I knew that I wanted not an ordinary passenger, and something higher. But the big jeep will not fit: torment to Park! I went to the BMW dealership across the street. And immediately saw the mini-SUV BMW X1. Small, but maneuverable: easy to fit anywhere, easily fit at least a curb and just will not spin during a snowfall. It and decided to buy it. Ordered a diesel engine to dramatically picked up speed and maneuvered. And now, after four months come, show me the car, and I see that the engine is petrol. Maybe the guys thought I was all the blonde, do not understand… But when they said that diesel will have to wait another four months, I gave up and took what is there. And now, two years enjoy: elegant, sustainable, control of the brakes on the turns, no slipping… feeling that good feel the car, I’ve always had. I remember my father’s “Moskvich”, “Zhiguli”, Renault… all his life He repaired the machine himself, friends, neighbors… Then I gave him the first Volkswagen Passat, and last year, on the anniversary — Nissan X-TRAIL. More modern and comfortable.

My driving experience is 11 years. Remember, struggled to get right and while studying at the University, and between filming and rehearsals were always busy. In the end of the 25 classes was only 10. On the right I took in Belarus, because they had citizenship there. What passed at the first attempt, it was my incredible luck on the exam I realized that as should not driving. But as they say, life will teach you everything. My husband and I have had one for two Audi A4, and I slowly gained experience on their own.

I remember all of my first crash. But they should be. As they say, thought love, but no — again experience. One day we went to refuel. The boy-tanker came to lead, began to show, as I get closer to the column, and I ran into a box of sand. Since it on your own: there are sensors and a camera. Incidentally, this was my first accident. The second happened because of my excessive confidence. I went out of town. The food itself I admire: wow, how did I drive the car like maneuver and keep speed… we Taxied around the corner, the traffic light suddenly, hit the brakes — too late! Hit two cars, and behind drove into me. Looking at the dented bumper and trunk, I cursed my pride. Since then persecute even the slightest thought about how I drive.

But without a car can’t, it’s my antidepressant. You no longer have to sit behind the wheel, I really do. Since the car spend a lot of time, I have everything you need: in the trunk — a few packages of water in the glove box — a sweet table: almonds, nuts, waffles. Supplies really help when standing in a traffic jam on the highway hungry or too lazy to stop for lunch. I, for example, to relatives in Belarus always go by car. 700 miles for me is no big distance. The first one was scary, but then fun. Love the track on which to accelerate. Sometimes the reckless driver in the city. I confess: fines for speeding are coming regularly. I’m a very energetic person, so does the car I drive: twitch, move along the road “checkers”, ahead of all. Fortunately, the cops recognize me and sometimes are in the position. Especially when I explain why in such a hurry. But not always lucky. Once was in a hurry to practice in the “Ice age”, the speed went to overtake and… crossed solid. Of course, I stopped. I started to explain that it is very late and I have tables. One policeman smiled and was ready to let go, and the second began to fill the paper. I was scared, in the face of despair the tears came: it’s a shame, he is really going to take away my rights! And suddenly the second one turns to me and so with the squint asked: “And Fyodor Dobronravov know? Can you call him?” Was not a fan of mine, and Fedin. I dialed the number I he on the set, but picked up. Saying, “Fyodor, I have the right to take” — give the phone to the policeman. He listened, then said, “Well, of course, release you!” Returned the phone, saluted the Nerves… of course I was on edge. The car is my second home: I don’t know how she lived, take away from me this chance to drive…

By the way, next year I decided to look for something new. Still mini jeep with all the convenience for me is really small. I think you look to Mercedes, Lexus, Infiniti. It would be nice of some Golden color. I have blue dream: Bentley, and I purposefully go to it. The life you have, I want to try everything.
