Hey guys car noob here. Looking for a car that is around 20,000 USD give or take a few thousand. Gets good gas mileage and is not boring to drive. I have to drive a lot for work and my Nissan Altima is a fairly boring car. Currently looking at a 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI. Seems to meet everything i'm looking for as far as being good on gas mileage and a peppy car. Appreciate all suggestions.
>Appreciate all suggestions
What about a smooth af luxo barge with not so great gas mileage
Nothing like a smooth V6 or V8 to make you feel special
Have you considered the used luxury segment?
Lexus IS350 could be right up your alley.
Is there anything good that comes from FF V6 cars? their weight distro its so fucked up, maybe if they were AWD or RWD they would be better, but as of what it is, i think there is no advantage to having a V6 in FF layout.
More weight on the front wheels means better traction though.
A better question would be why front heavy cars never seem to be specified with bigger tires in the front, to match the weight distribution, but we all know it's because the average driver wants the same tire in every wheel.
Besides, why not a V8?

>b-but german cars are reliable
>y-you just have to f-fix it every 5000mi and pay 3x the cost for parts
>w-when will you m-memers get it
The best Fords are British
I don't know if EuroFords are really just British; I'm sure I heard somewhere that ford Germany had more of a roll in some of the greats than people really credit them for.. Also the engines are frequently American.
The cars themselves, though? Yeah, fuckin' GOAT.
Let have a g/o/re thread
here some OC from an accident last night
Its a turbo too, bought it about 6 months ago
coming home from work last night
trying to impress BMW coupe behind me
slam on the pedal, turbo boost to 50 in 35
roads are wet, lose control
start understeering, fuck it up
hit a boulder on the side of the road
Post some gore niggas!
Ford blatantly copies Aston Martin styling, crysler blatantly copies Bentley styling. Makes cheap econo cars focused largely on the domestic market, get destroyed by foreign competitors due to shit quality.
Convince me American brands are different than Chinese car makers
>fucking mid December
>no fucking sign of snow
>no fucking sign of cold temperatures
>70 FUCKING DEGREES TODAY AAAAAAAAHH I AM FUCKING SWEATING IN DECEMBER
WHAT IS THIS BULLSHIT

>Extremely fucking uncomfortable
>Get out to working on car
>Literally the best day
Suck it up OP.
>There are people on /o/ who already put up their best cars
>They couldn't forsee how good the weather was gonna be
Hehehe hairdresser lolololol
Is there really any alternative to the Miata? For the roadster that it is, it seems like there isn't anything like it in terms of price, looks, and driving feel. Are there any roadsters that come close or should I just buy one already?
Will boxy cars ever make a comeback?
Post a bigger meme car currently on the road
>pro tip: I doubt you will be able to
i was thinking about designing a car /o/
it'd be electric, but get this. you know how batteries really make it pigfat? well my batteries aren't like that. instead it utilizes nanowire ultracapacitors, increasing its power desnity several times over. this shaves the weight to about 40% of conventional lithium batteries. so lets take a known EV like the tesla and look at its weight and how much of it is contributed to batteries.
You have the Tesla Model S, which weighs about 4,600 lbs, and how much does the battery pack weight? 1323 lb! that's more...

>How do I into CDL?
Community college, independent schools. Get a grant or loan before you sign a contract with a company offering to pay for school.

What music do you guys listen to when driving? Post links. Gonna rip some CDs.
my coworkers base model cavalier. he's currently throwing a tantrum at work
i have a 01 nissan sentra gxe, these lights on my car are dead
what is the technical name for them? are they cheap and an easy replacement?
sorry i do not know shit about cars
That car has no lights there. Those are blanks for where fog lights would go. They are usually not easy to replace because the bulbs should just about last the lifetime of the car. You only use fog lights in inclement weather such as fog, so you shouldn't really worry about them.
fuck i thought they were regular lights
i am asking because i cannot see shit at night even with high beams on, i replaced the bulbs of he headlights... maybe they aren't strong enough?
