>it's 50 steps long, takes 2 hours, requires 15 different products and a fucking $300 water softener that attaches to the hose
Why is this allowed? What ever happened to soap, water, a rag/sponge, and glass cleaner if you're feeling lucky?
some people can afford to make their car look nice OP, get over it you poor faggot.
Been looking at 2010+ ford focus as my new daily driver.

Any better ideas than that?
Looking for free or cracked software to simulate and modify an engine. I'm an engineering student and just want to learn more about modifications to combustion engines.
lamborghini, what the fuck are you doing

I got in it earlier with the a/c on and on full settings and it cut off and came back on after a few seconds. I kept driving it like normal.
Let it sit an hour or two doing stuff then went to go back out and now it won't work at all. No fan blowing the air out. I can feel the engine when the compressor kicks in and no air flow when sitting still with key in but engine off and with engine off.
It's not low on freon to the best of my knowledge and no leak I could see or fluids under car or oily residue on interior.

My brother gave me his 2013 A4 2.0T quattro before he moved out of the country a few months ago.
I already have 2 cars but I want to have fun with this one...
Any tips on making it a bit faster? It isn't slow but I think it would be more fun to drive.
Don't want to spend more then 3K
I finally re-registered it last week.
It only took 5 fucking months for Audi to mail my brother, then my brother mail me the proof it's paid off
Gentlemen, I present to you The Ford Falcon
>Supercharged 5.0l v8
Why do auscucks get all the good cars? They cant even drive them to their potential without getting them impounded and crushed.
from that side, it really does.
we get the ecoboost fusion
they get the falcon
Hey the fusion looks pretty decent to me. This had a nice sporty touch that is pretty recognizable, unlike the Chevy SS
When does a car crossover from simply being "sporty" to a full blown sports car?
Is there ever a situation where converting FWD to RWD would be more worthwhile than converting to AWD?
Awd can be converted to Rwd by a flick of a switch so I would root for awd in any case
But to be honest the whole converting would cost way to much than just buying an already rwd/awd car
There has been cases where civics got converted to AWD, I reckon only die hard honda fans would consider this.
What's the general opinion on Fieros? There's one for sale right by my house and it looks flawless. I figure that it could be a fun-ish daily driver. It's an 84-86 SE. Right now I DD a foxbody, so...
Introducing the all new 2017 Civic Hatchback™.
Built to Inspire.
A: I know next to nothing about cars.
B: I inherited a 97 Subaru Legacy a few months ago. Manual says it's a 97, google shows me nothing but outbacks, but it's a sedan.
I put a new battery in it and it ran for a while, but now it needs to be jumped every so often. I'm assuming it's the starter, but idk. Also, a deer took out the right mirror and dented said side so the door pinches. I can definitely fix the mirror; the cords and port are intact so as long as I can secure it well enough I can fix it. I'll maybe just bang out the dent for now....

That's not the starter, that's the alternator. REALLY easy to replace. You can do it yourself. Just pick up the haynes manual for it at your local autozone and a starter craftsman ratchet set from sears. Literally 15 minutes. Part is maybe $100-140
I used some headlight restore stuff on the right (or in this case, left) headlight and the results were minimal. Is there another effective way to restore them to make it look like the other one? It looks much worse than in the pic
Anybody have suggestions for a vehicle that will fit 3 car seats without a third row? My wife is pregnant with twins, and we have a 2 year old already. No vans please.
What's a good two-tone colour combo?
Can you give me a history of this mem?
What's the best new subcompact crossover around $20k?
I went to walmart at 1am last night in new jersey and saw a matte black Bentley GT in the parking lot. It had California plates.
Anyone ever see one of these before? Are they just luxurious or are they great at performance?
Every so often, I see Bentleys near Bergen community college. They do pack a punch and manage to look good at it.
I guess it was a "satin wrap". It looked cool.
I live in a shitty New Jersey area, so there are no fancy cars there, so this guy being at walmart at 1am with the methheads stuck out like a sore thumb.
>passenger opens the door before you turn off the engine
Just got this yesterday. Didn't even realize I was near a get until I looked down.
Post your gets.
Bonus points if you know what shit box I'm driving
I'm trying to build a crows nest in the back of my truck. Does anyone know CA laws if this is allowed? If not I'll still plunder em. What restrictions would I be facing? Like Height? Stability?
>I'm trying to build a crows nest in the back of my truck.
Would you a NOS pillow?
Tell me /o/ what made you love cars?
Cars made me love cars. Isnt that why everyone loves cars? Because they exist.

So, I bought an Evo 4 in Southern Ontario. Insurance companies are like "no" with trying to insure it. I bought it because it was $2500 and needed a T-Case. I was just going to flip it but I kinda wanna drive it now instead. Anyone in Ontario that have a RHD that have got decent prices for yearly.
Pic related, my evo.
Why do people hate on GM religiously? Their cars are on par with the others. Like really wtf? Need proof? VW = Worst German car, Toyota = Worst Jap car. I don't get it. My Chevy (one of the "worst" ones too) outlasted many other brands. Why so much hate?
I don't get it either. I have 430xxx miles on my lifted silverado and all its needed was a few front end parts here and there and new clutches in the rear diff.
Alright, so I'm planning on buying a cruiser, turning it into a bobber and selling it with a profit.
Apart from changing the seat, handle bars and mirrors/getting rid of the front mudguard and chopping the rear. What else can I do that doesn't cost much but improves the look a lot?
What make and model? Don't forget exhaust, trim decals, included helmet that fits the bike theme. Slap a storage unit under the seat with 12v car charger port for your target customer. Paint should either be overtly "look at me!" Or subtle badass like the silent 80s action hero. Void space on the frame is a no no, two tone engines are back in so keep chrome to a minimum. Keep leather dark brown, but not black.
If american, we love complete package deals that look like they go together.
I'd customize a Yamaha Virago 535. It ain't a big engine, but I'm in Europe so what do they care.
I thought of a sleek British racing green color with chrome accents. Brown seat and brown handle bar hand grips.
Do you know how to get a two tone cylinder DIY style like in the OP pic?
>Remove a bunch of shit off and ebay those parts
>Straight pipe exhaust
>Sell it at a higher cost
What's up /o/, i was trying to find a solution but nothing i tried works, so maybe you guys can help me out.
I bought these rims for my Ibiza a couple of months ago. Now i've used them for a while, the outside of the rim is covered in brake dust. I can't get it off with any detergent, the carwash doesnt help and a high pressure hose does nothing either. is there anybody with a solution? I'm a bit afraid of using a scourer since that may harm the rim.
