So I am going to be buying a new car. Here's the criteria::
>Have $15,000 budget
>Commute 50 miles back and forth to work
>Has to be Japanese
What care should I get /o/?
Preferably something with enough room for 4 big guys. (when I'm rollin with the squad) But still looks good.
FUG! I knew I was missing something.
Has to be 2010 +
How many horses does a horse have?
Any hints as to what would be a good long distance, heavy-ish hauling and most importantly reliable and efficient car that can be had for peanuts? I need a music gear (drums, amps, guitars, not so much people) hauler that I can regularly take halfway across Massachusetts fairly regularly without stabbing myself in the wallet like my SUV is doing to me. Bonus points for it being actually fun to hoon in.
Pic related, was thinking of one of these guys in manual, reportedly gets something like 29mpg on a good day and may or may not be Toyota reliable
And you still didn't embrace the fresh wave of progressive car design yet.
Why still driving in 5th hand rust boxes with 30 years old farts in the seats when you can be a progressive car enthusiast?
New cars are for faggot little pussies. You have to build a purpose built street/ race car nowadays from a collectible old popular platform. If you don't want fart seats you buy some new racing seats and bolt them in. Then you can driver around getting stink faces from "progressive fags" like OP when you smoke their new car that they think is good.
What is the most engine ever made?
There are people on /o/ right now that don't know
>the W in 10w-30 stands for winter
>the T in T-tops stands for Targa
> the R in 205/55 R17 stands for Radial
Bought the '91 version of this as my first car, how fucked am I?
I was recently called out by a coworker of mine that I drive a "childish" car.
It's not the first time I've heard that comment or something similar from people I know. So I've decided to conform and say fuck it and get something plane, boring and just purely a tool to commute and do my errands with.
so what is the best "boring, mature" car?
Come to think of it, when you're past a certain age, it's unbecoming to drive a Civic with a fartcan and a wing unless you're Mexican.
What are your requirements aside from "being boring".
>it's a manual thread
>"hey guys how do I shift into first"
>302 replies and 17 images omitted
>no consensus whatsoever
How is manual supposed to be superior again?
neither are superior they both serve different purposes for different types of driving
if you really wanna do boring to and back from work daily commutes in a manual, more power to you, i'd rather a comfy auto
if you wanna have fun on the weekends? manual is your only option. there is no "driving experience" to be had in an auto.
Your top 3 favorite/dream cars?
My list, all of them are reasonably realistically attainable:
>1. R32 GTR
>2. Viper GTS
>3. FC RX-7
>Shelby Cobra 427
>1970 Plymouth Roadrunner
Trabant P60 Limousine Deluxe
Trabant 601 Pickup
What's your favorite factory sleeper?
Looking into boosting a b18cr, I know it has a higher compression but I can't get any b18c4's where I'm located...
What setups would you recommend while trying to keep it under 4k.
Boost whp goal: like 250-300
what the hell is an engine knock?
That is when a rod (connects piston to crankshaft) has been bent or something equally fucked has happened and it's "knocking" on the cylinder. The engine will run for a bit but it's fucked.
How long before the Chrysler brand is phased out in favor of Fiat in the U.S.?
Anybody on here that has owned both the C5 and C6 Corvette? Pros and cons of both? Love my C5. Drove an auto C6 one time but not long enough to be able to tell the difference and it was a while ago.
