bought an FF car instead of na miata
what a god damn mistake
After I got a motorcycle I kinda lost a need for a fun car, because I guess nothing in reasonable price won't get me such primal feel as riding motorcycle.
dat fucking hot metal and oil feel and smell
now i feel all i want is a reliable dd, not some crx or mr2
it's an abstract kind of feel ;_;
how to live?
What went so right?
Also general euro shitboxes-thread.
First time posting here
What does /o/ think about buying a car vs leasing? I am at the corssroads right now
Buy new or used honestly. Lease only when you work for a company that will pay for the car or you're in an executive position and cannot roll places in a car older than the girl you raped the day before. Buy new if you want the satisfaction of being able to rely on a warranty. Buy used if you know how to play people or find good deals on cars worth a shit.
So I found a shop online That rebuilds turbo's and I called up the guy he came to my house (my car doesn't. Run) and he picked up my turbo and I gave him 250$ to start and I needed rush for fixxfest12 but is been a week now and I keep calling and he doesn't pick up he reads my text but doesn't reply. I went to the website and it has no address for the shop all I have is his # is there anyway to get an address or info? Plz help

918 is fastest in drag as well, followed by Bugatti, then P1, LaFerrari, and Huayra.
>Pic related, the only part of the 918 the others will ever see.
Can anyone explain to me the threshold for diesel engines struggling to start in the cold and how to work with it?
I'm thinking about getting a used pickup truck, and I like the benefits of diesel (efficiency, longevity, torque, the smell and sound), but I'm not sure if it's viable for me.
I live in the northern USA, close to the Canadian border, so it gets cold where I am. Also, I have to park in a parking lot at night for most of the year, so I don't have access to an external power supply like a wall outlet.
Should I just stop considering it altogether...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
All diesel cars/trucks should have ability to be started by running compressed air through them.
Just imagine having a diesel truck on a cold snowy morning.
>get compressed air tank
>hook it up to the engine
>watch the engine be forced into life.
Winter's almost there... are you ready Scandinavian warriors ?
where can I get fog lights like these?
I honestly don't know. these are old Cibié I found brand new... but they're 30 years old. Look up on Ebay maybe
MKIII Supra, do you like it? Why or why not? I'm considering buying one, because I really like them, but my buddy had one which he restored and modded and tells me they're not as fun as they look.
Is shoveling necessary when you own an AWD?
If you want to track snow in your house, build up a huge layer of hardback that takes forever to melt and turns a gravel drive into muck when it does, no.
I have a plow service do mine, fuck shoveling
I'm gonna go look at some outback sports this weekend. Anyone have any tips on what to look for? Common problems?
I'm looking for a practical, fun daily driver. Anyone own one of these? Would love to get some insight from you guys.
Headgaskets. The 2.5 Sohc in these used an inferior headgasket and it's known to be a problem. It'll be fun in the snow and you can use almost all the 2.5rs or even some next gen wrx parts on it as the chassis Is very similar
Hey, any saab 900 owners here?
I got my drivers license 2 days ago, and am looking for a 'reliable' car under 1000€ and only cars that really fit that are either Volvo's or Saab's.
Tomorrow I'm test driving a 1989 saab 900i like pic related. Anything to look for/ask the owner?
It's currently driven 300k km, one owner, perfect service book etc. Am I making a mistake?
that appears to be a non-turbo.. which means a bit slow, but that might not be a big deal to you.
one good thing about the non-turbo is that if its a manual, the transmission isn't stressed. The manual transmissions pinion bearing is weak, and will got to crap at 150k to 200k for a turbo, not sure about a non turbo.
So I would check for timing chain stretch and service of the pinion bearing.
if its a one owner car, with all service records its probably been taken care of.. and should be o.k.
Owned a few, not fun working on the front of the engine which is against the firewall because it's longitudinal but backwards. Why?
I'd go with a volvo, much easier to work on and at least here in Murika easier to find parts.
If you get a saab go with a 9000 much nicer and maintenance isn't as difficult
9000 aero>9000cse turbo>900 turbo>900s>900
The local dealerships in town are offering 0% APR for 72 months.
What's the catch? Besides paying for 6 years that sounds pretty awesome. Low monthly payments and no interest right? There has to be some secret jewing going on that I don't understand.
>praising overrated/overpriced japanese car
>while Opel Omega is basically the same
I mean srsly
