No one would use another īs car without permission - so you īd probably say
"do you mind if I borrow your car?"
Otherwise of the two examples you wrote - the first is the best -
do you mind if I use your car

If you had already started using the car then you īd say "do you mind me using your car" Not very likely, because how īd you have got the keys! but hey, could be your Dad īs.

Sometimes people start borrowing things without asking permission

"oh, sorry, Mum, do you mind me borrowing this dress?" - as you walk out the door wearing her dress!

HTH!

Hugs from a hot and sunny Barcelona!

PS. oh and by the by: Villa you are a star!!!! Way to go!
