    In/with/by your car

    Hello all!
    In sentence blow, if we use "with/by" instead of "in", is it wrong? Please.

    Did you come here in your car?

    With would mean "accompanied by", which would be an odd situation but grammatically correct. By is not possible there.
    I am not a teacher.

    If you remove "your", you can use "by".

    Did you come here by car?

    Most of us would say "Did you drive here?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
