So I am thinking about buying an rsx type s. I just don't know which year to get. Anyone have any input for best year?
look similar to this, why don't you just get this
>when a guy in an objectively better car than yours pulls up next to you at a light, give you a thumbs up and says 'nice car man!'
>unseasonably warm fall day this week
>not hot, just right
>fuck it call in sick
>spend the whole day driving on empty backroads
>fall leaves blowing everywhere, top down, eurobeat blasting
there is no better feel
Welp...Looks like I'll be getting the Mazda instead.
So I recently bought a 1979 240D. The car was certified and the dude drove it for like 3 hours to sell to me. I just recently tried to start it and the engine turned over, but only for like 5 seconds and then a ton of diesel smell (I think it was diesel anyway) came from it and the engine shut off. I tried started it a few more times with a longer glow plug time and it didn't turn over at all. Any hints as to what could be causing the problem?

The Car and Driver in my bathroom has an article comparing the Mustang and Camaro. The Camaro beats it in nearly every measurable category except price.
Too bad the Camaro is so fucking ugly.
what's a cheap lightweight car that has a boxer engine?
A couple of weeks ago I reserved a 2016 Mustang Ecoboost stock,
I choose the stock since the premium package is almost out of my budget.
It was difficult but this will be first car
Any advice? Am I doing it right?
transmission? performance pack?
the premium is stupid. 4 grand (3 grand potentially from buying existing stock) is not worth a bigger screen with a pre-out-of-date nav system, partial leather seats, and cooled seats that have mediocre reviews.
the base still has backup camera with steering lines, bluetooth audio, USB ports, leather wrapped shifter, boot, and steering wheel, power seats, auto headlights and blind spot mirrors.
Sup /o/, I'm new here so I don't know if what I'm saying is massively retarded or not cuz I don't know anything about cars but I was wondering; What is your opinion on the Toyota FJ cruiser 2014 model? Is it a good car? Is it trash? I'm looking for something that will do well in the snow (I moved to Denver recently) and I'm looking at either this, a 2015 Jeep Patriot, or a 2014 Jeep Wrangler, which of those is the better car and why?
Thanks for the help /o/.
I have a DMV appointment on the third to get my permit and I have 530 dollars put away on my PayPal for my first car. I *can* be patient and save up till I can have like a 2000 dollar budget or some shit, but I'm an impatient sunovabitch. There are no good deals on Craigslist right now and I've found these two cars on Ebay:
1997 El Dorado
1986 Toyota Tercel
tl;dr Convince me to either keep saving or buy one of these cars. I'm in a rock and a hard place here.

Any car you buy for $500 will need thousands of dollars in work in its immediate lifetime. There is no fucking double about that. 2k-3k is the prime spot to be able to find a well maintained, non POS car, that you don't need to put so much money into.
Really, buy a $500 car and put in 2k-5k in repairs.
Save up for 2000. 530 dollars gets you the most piece of shit there is on craigslist, or something that does run which will cost money to get it running. With 2000 you can atleast get a car that runs.
LS swaps: meme or mandatory?
Is anyone here actually not a fucking loser and actually drives or works on high performance cars?
Anyone here actually look at spending a few thousand on bottom end parts? Think in cam timing? Port and Polish their own cars? Have enough power to worry if the power will bust through their piston walls? Power adders are things to be stacked, not debated about which one is best?
This thread is for you.
Real niggas only.
Does idling an engine charge the car battery?
Yes, but quite slowly and you shouldn't use it as a method to charge a battery low on power as it can be harmful and might reduce the lifetime of the battery
When an engine idles the alternator turns backwards draining the battery faster than just using it with the car off.
If you're sitting anywhere for a while using the stereo make sure to turn the car off.
Is there any hope?
How bad of an idea is it to buy an rx8? I have never owned a Dorito motor before but I am positive I can handle apex seals and other big jobs. They are pretty cheap around here.
