How much should I be paying for an aw11 mr2 with no serious rust or mechanical issues, running and driving?
Should I get one, /o/? It'll be a bit of a financial stretch but I have enough income to afford it. Whaddya think?
I had a dream and someone smart told me...
>Everyone should drive inline 6
It was implied that the configuration of the drive wheels and engine position (FF/FR/RR/RF) were personal preference as long as you drive an inline 6.
The first letter tell the position of the engine and the second tells you which wheel are the drive wheels (which moves the car)... F for front and R for rear.
FR would be front engine and rear wheel drive...*
TL;DR: Discuss inline 6
Yes, the first letter in engine/drive acronyms are always engine placement and second letter is always drive wheels
And yes, everyone should drive an i6 at some point in their life to know how glorious of an engine design it is, especially pic related

What is the very first car you go and buy with your reward?
is it reliable enough to be both funcar and daily commuting box?
I scratched this part of my car. Do you know if it is possible to purchase this individual part of my car and what is the name of it?
Help is greatly appreciated.
this is also my exact car, it seems removable. Like it isn't part of my bumper.

Are fram filters really that terrible o?
I see everyone always saying they are absolute shit but today i went to autozone to buy oil and a filter for my turbocharged car which requires synthetic oil and the only brands they had where fram, k&n, bosch and duralast or whatever the autzone brand is
Fram and duralest where the only ones that had filters that specified they were for synthetic oil so i ended up buying a fram
So is fram really shit or is it just a meme?
They didn't have fucking Wix? They don't have those on the shelf, you ask for them. If you split a Fram filter open you'll see it looks like something Macguyver made out of bathroom supplies. They're fine for shitboxs. If you have a fancy turbo car running synthetic spend the goddamn money for Wix.
Is the ae86 the best car ever made?
No, it's a meme car and the whole show was based based on Kakumi having to overcome the shortcomings of his shitbox. Kyoichii basically made a fool of him and showed him that his engine is a turd.
The lowest TCO $ cars are now hybrids. Did environmentalism give us all better cars?
Yeah I fell for that meme. Now my hybrid is falling apart at 200k. Computer shit going wrong left and right. Only Toyota can fix it. They issue out a buttload of tsb and fuck you when the cars old enough to get those problems. Out of warranty of course. Everyone's solution is to yell and be a prick until they honor it.
How the fuck could they know the cost of ownership on such a new car?
Lets share some facts about platform sharing and parts bin specials, where you can get decent bolt-on upgrades for your car by using OEM parts off another car.
Example: Though the share almost NOTHING, the Huge Brembo brake calipers from the second generation Cadillac CTS-V bolt right onto the stock spindles of an American market Chevy Sonic. With no modifications.
Unsure. Probably. look it up. Volvos had sister cars among Ford and Lincoln so it's worth looking.
Example: The Volvo C30, Ford Focus, and Mazda 3 all share the same platform. and have numerous interchangeable parts.
The Ford 2.3/2.5 Lima engines.
Famous for powering the Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe and the Ford Mustang SVO.
Did you know you can do a DOHC 16 valve conversion by using the cylinder head from an unrelated Volvo engine? The Volvo engine in question with the compatible head is the B234F.
It's not a complete molt on but the amount of modifications for it to work is very minor and cheap.

Could i buy a 200w power inverter that plugs in your cigarette lighter and hook up a PC subwoofer to my car. than use a aux splitter to hook it up to my car speaker and phone to play music. just a thought i had because i have a random polk audio sub which i dont use and ive been thinking of installing it in my car. is this a good idea or am i retarded, thanks /o/
Sup br/o/s, 30 days ago I bought a 2016 Focus ST. Tomorrow I'm having a stealership fix my factory recall for software updates. Of all the performance vehicles I've owned over the years, this vehicle by far handles the best. Power wise it's meh but what do you expect from 250 HP? It'll put you in your seat a little but nothing to brag about. But I digress. I wanted to start a Tricks n Tips thread for any vehicle out there. Have a question in regards? Ask away. Know of anything that should be given to the public? Post here.
For myself I'd like to know if I can install projectors into the standard housing for the ST? I didn't buy an additional package because I really only wanted the turning lights with HIDs. Fuck everything else. The standard cloth seats are far more comfortable for a viking sized man as myself. And who needs a 4pt headrest?
I too have a focus ST.
as far as i know, and I have done very minor research, you can't really just put the projectors into the stock housings. what you'd need to do is buy the projectors, housing and all, and install it that way. I imagine this means including any extra harnesses/wiring not provided with the standard head lights.
The cloth seats are relatively comfortable but on long trips they do cause a little fatigue in the legs since it has somewhat of a weird angle, pointing your knees more up.
The ST2 package seats with partial leather are the best compromise and for the price it does come with a lot of nice goodies buuut you aren't missing out on much.
What is the best window tint?
I got a quote for $160 Llumnar ATC, $209 for the ATR and $250 for the CTX. Car is a 2005 Mustang. Are these fair prices? The installer is very reputable.
Does /o/ keep a gun in their car?
That seems like a really retarded place to keep it unless there's a lock I'm not seeing.
I don't ATM but strongly considering a CCW when I can find the right place to take the class. The fucking St. Cloud mall stabbing happened a goddamn hour from where I live. That is not supposed to happen in goddamn minnesota. None of this BLM nonsense or ISIS shit is supposed to happen in Minnesota. I will not be a victim. I will not be at their mercy.
Just how good, is the ae86/gts? Also, post other cool 80's jap cars.
Owner reporting in, worst vehicle ever, absolutely terrible, never buy one, just the shittiest possible car that was ever made in history. Don't listen to anyone tell you that it's fun, just an overpriced memebox on wheels.
>Don't buy one
My brake pads are centric from rockauto - $14 a pair
My oil is supertech 5-20 conventional - 5qt for $10
My oil filter is bosch - $2
who else /cheap shitbox/ here?

So with the new acura nsx and toyota supra lookin to be pretty big let downs (not sure how the rx-7's gonna come out) is the new toyota 86 our last hope at having a loved car from the past be brought back in at least most of it's glory??
>seemingly useful technology/cluster

how does the miata stand up against the ferrari enzo?
My brake pads are only making partial contact with my rotors. It looks exactly like this picture. They are brand new slotted rotors and brand new pads.
My calipers didn't do this before so it can't possibly be that. The new brakes stop fine - hell even better than my old ones by A LOT but I'm worried about this. What could it be? Should I just give it more time to bed in and flatten the pads? I've driven my car about 80-100 miles since I put the pads in. Half of it being highway.
Must be the pads that haven't been assembled that well, this happens all rotors this? If yes, give them a little time, you can't go hard on new pads, specially with new rotors too. Give them some time and brake soft and slowly. After a week or two, or maybe a couple hundred miles drive to a decent speed and brake hard.
Name as many reasons as you can telling me why I shouldn't buy a 1990 Eagle Talon TSI AWD, except the typical it's unreliable bullshit.
Is it worth installing, /o/?
How/why did Subaru become the hippy dippy feel good brand? They can easily market themselves as a Japanese version of Dodge but they don't. It puzzles me.
>they can easily change people's perceptions of them
how did Trump become a blabbering orange racist idiot? he could easily campaign as a smart, savvy businessman who's a political outsider
