Anyone else finding new car designs uglier than older ones? I feel like the old models that were blockier and sharper were far more aesthetically pleasing and elegand rather than newer concepts. Pic related to prove my point.
If you want to compare models at least use the same models from their periods. Not an M5 and some random 5series
Are those two even the same model line? The one on the right looks like a GT or hatchback if you look at the rear end.
What went wrong /o/?
Good cars if you can afford them new. Nissan blended style and performance well in the 90s and that is pretty much all you could ask for from a luxury brand.
Paddle shifting twin turbos isn't my idea of fun but it could be worse - you could be a nigger in an Acura Accord.
sup /o/, going to upgrade my headunit soon, i'd like a double din with lcd but not sure if i need GPS features. I need to have bluetooth for my phone and usually use google maps from phone through bluetooth. Is the built in GPS worth it? anything else i should know? going to go to a "popular" audio shop close by
The only reason to get one with GPS is for the large screen. Double din units w/o a large screen look absolutely horrid. But you will probably keep using your phone because it will be quicker, more accurate and more intuitive to use. Do you have ios or android? What is your budget? There are some awesome android headunits out there but they can be pricey. And you are going to be paying more and limiting your selection by going to a local shop. But if doing it yourself isn't an option (it is really easy) then I would ask the local shop if they would install a unit you purchase online
Wanker memes aside, why would you want an RX-7?
Best car ever?
I had one.
Very low miles. Very well kept.
Bought it from a honda dealer. Certified used.
Was the biggest pile of shit. Fit and quality is terrible across the whole car.
Traded it for a SW20
Corollas are better cars
tell me a story about your shitbox while mine cools off /o/
>just realized i overfilled car with like 2 quarts of oil a week or two ago
>horse is still running strong
who /stronghorse/ here
We can all agree that this was the best car in Initial D right?
What's the best way to clean my driveway? Redid it a year ago and all these black and yellow spots have accumulated.
Get some epoxy paint/sealer stuff for concrete, paint it with that. Be sure to get the stuff with the little bits of grit in it though, so it doesn't become super slick.
Stuff is great, seals it, makes it waterproof, you can just wipe up any spills without staining, and you can still walk on it in winter without immediately falling on your ass.
all around the world?
Or is it just Europe and America where they have weird attitude issues when encountering drivers?
They are a problem in Japan
Bakuon!! had an entire episode dedicated to cyclists being cunts
does anyone on here DD a car with a torsen differential?
What is it like and how is it in the rain
makes driving easymode. in the GT86 it lets you drift like a champion, or drive completly neutral with all available grip, depending on your throttle input.
far as rain goes, your tires does 99% of the work there.
>not doing a FWD conversion on your Miata
Is the Golf Sportwagen S 4Motion a good car? I'm in the market for a new car in that price range.
What's /o/'s opinion on the diesel Fiat Punto?
Nice try mjet but you cant fool anyone in this board now fuck off.
hey guys its been awhile since I post here. I plan on doing something a little crazy and like your opinion.
I plan on buying a military Humvee from a auction site fixing it up a little and driving it on the street.
Does anyone have any experience with them? is this a good idea?
oh and I plan on making it to look something like this.
What's the worst accident you've ever been in
>Ran a red because 0 hours sleep
You think it'll never happen to you but it will
>there are people who actually bought new Mitsubishi's this year
>had 2008 Lancer GTS
>great condition, bought it for 8000 CAD
>guy I know from basic training buys a 2016 Lancer for 18000 CAD
>literally the EXACT SAME as my old Lancer except it has the weaker 2.0L making 150hp, no foglights, no spoiler, no sound system, no sunroof, uglier fascia
How fucking stupid can you be? I mean, he IS an Armyfag so I don't expect him to be smart. But still, heavy price for a decade-old shitbox.
>car freshly vacuumed and cleaned inside, fresh vacuum drive-marks on the carpets, everything smells fresh
>washed, waxed, polished
>your old shitbox standing in front of you like a brand new car
>buy "new" shitbox
>drives like a wet noodle but you know the potential
>change everything you suspect being responsible for the wet noodle
>suddenly, car drives like a sharp dagger
>buy 240k lexus
>replace everything that makes it drive like a piece of shit
>give it a paint job
Looks okay and rides good its still a shitbox but for once i own a car wherein there's a point/result of washing it and detailing
Has there ever been an automobile that has gone back to a previous design it use to have? Im not talking about retro bullshit like the mustang and camaro of recent years, but more or less gone in complete reverse and fellback on an older design after a new one failed?
No, they're not gonna make the FD ever again, you nostalgic fuck
Are these things really all that unreliable?
My car is nearly worth what I make in a year, and though I love it to death, I'm afraid to push its limits or track it.
I once passed up a mint-condition 2001 ZX2 S/R for 1500 dollarydoos because I cared about what other people thought of me (and I didn't like the interior). I feel like if I had bought it, I would be vastly richer AND be having more fun since I could beat the snot out of it and not care. Sadly, I got nowhere to put a 2nd car, so I guess I'll continue enjoying my non-poorfag car.
Anyone else wish they had a crapclunker?
Ive had a second beater car or truck for a few years now. Wouldn't call it a beater cause i keep it in good mechanical shape though. 89 chevy 1500. Just ugly. Its nice to fall back on it incase my DD fucks up.
I have a precious shitbox that I'm pampering but no other shitbox at thbe moment.
Im afraid of wrecking said shitbox because its rare and in good condition and ive poured a ton of money into it.
Im afraid of even driving it in the rain due to more rust forming under but that will change once I pull out my rear end and scrub all the surface rust on it and under the car and spray some rust primer and undercoat under and inside the car.
And get a new tank since this one is rusty af.
has anyone ever thrown up in your car?
how did you clean it up?
Yes my cat on the fucking driver seat while I went out to buy some curry.
Yelled at it. It sat quietly head turned down. Felt bad later man :(
Okay so how did I clean up. Since the puke was small compared to human sized, I sprayed a whole can of chink deodorant at the puke spot. What else I could do?
>Buying a vert corvette
>Tell me why I shouldn't
>Inb4 ppl look at you, well no shit i have driven a convertible b4
Don't know much about cars but its this one

Are 125cc sport bikes the most redpilled form of transportation?
What is this /o/ ?
My grand father died and gave me this. He was a mechanic and made it as his masterpiece.
Looking at ls 430s
Found the perfect version about 3 hours away.
After doing some vin checks i found it had reported frame damage.
The car has 45 service records from the Lexus dealership including the 90k service with timing belt
Currently has about 135k miles. But last recorded lex service was done in 2012
I'm attaching what I THINK were the frame damage repair info from lexus.
Please offer some advise on wether you think this car is safe or not.
Car had 113k miles at last lexus service 4 years ago. Since it's only got 135k at the moment, i figure not a lot has happened. This version is oerfecy and i want it badly. Just would like some non biased opinions
I read that frame damage os a huge issue.
Title is not salvage and i think lexus repaired it. If that's the case, my assumption is there's no need to worry
why do people get so mad at tailgaters? we aren't going to crash into you.
give me a legitimate reason to be upset for me driving behind you too close
>we aren't going to crash into you.
Yes you fucking are. And I'll put the rear foglights on until you back off. That doesn't work? Whoops, my foot lifted off the gas.
Keep doing it after slowing right down? My suspension's better than yours, so I'll run over shit and kick it up into your car.
>Driver's seat has "normal" wear
Let's say you wanted to start a racing team, sponsored by your own company, and do well enough that the company breaks even on it (post-tax), how would you start, or what car would you pick?
>I personally was thinking an RX-7 to start
Picture is unrelated, but it's the first company car I'd by myself if I could
