NEIN FOUR FOUR
Anyone on /o/ who owns one? How is it like? Is the moneypit rep fair?
Assuming both cars are brand new:
>2015 base trim Honda Civic SI sedan manual
>2015 base trim Volkswagen Golf GTI coupe manual
I'm looking for a "hot hatch" type commuter car.
Two doors is annoying as fuck, but the GTI is "fancier" than the Si. I like Honda though and it will probably be a lot easier to maintain. The Si is also made in Canada so I'd get some patriotic...

Both are really good cars. I had trouble choosing between them too. Although i wouldn't really consider the Si a "hot hatch".
I ended up buying a 2012 Si coupe and i absolutely love it. They make great commuter cars since most the power is at the top end. Just driving around on the highways i usually make 30mpg.
>not waiting for the 2017 MS3 with AWD and 300hp
Is Lexus expensive to maintain, get spare parts for and so forth?
>tfw cant drive stick
I'm buying a 2006 Mini Cooper S, what is /o/'s opinion on these cars/ Mini Coopers in general? Pic related.
>Posts a gen3
OP I had an '06 non-S for five years, it was great.
Gaskets and hoses will leak. 06 is the best year to get. Go lurk at NorthAmericanMotoring, it's by far the biggest and best mini site, really helpful. I just sold mine for a BMW but I'd own another in a minute if I could keep two cars.
Pic related, my former ride.
the '06 S has literally the least amount of problems. None of the turbo issues of the 07+, none of the trans issues of the CVT in the non-S Gen1 cars. Other than motor mounts and leaky thermostat housings and oil pan gasket it's a pretty safe bet.
Okay, /o/, please give me your absolute favorite driving music, all genres welcome.
I really, really liked all of OutRun, anyone know of similar albums in style?
looking at getting into karting.
kartfags, what are noob mistakes to avoid? any gear to avoid? what gear should i get? is a neck cushion good enough? or do i NEED one of those plastic full neck brace things?
motorbike helmets are fine for karting? i already have a good motorbike helmet.

Is there anyway to for the Apex Seals to stop deteriorating?
saw this downstairs, took some photos.
What does /o/ think about black-box insurance schemes and telematics in general?
Well, most cars nowadaysdays have telematics recorders as part of their ICE systems.
Soon every car will have them and there's nothing you can do about it if you want a new car, save from ripping out the ICE equipment.
I bought a tercel, went to register it and the previous mileage is 210,000 miles. Fucker said it had 130,000. What can I do. Guy wont respond or anything, wanna go fuck his shit up but im beta as fuck.
So I keep seeing meet threads for basically every US State under the sun, I think it's time we had one of our own.
Anyone up for this?
Any ideas location wise? Thinking maybe Manchester or Birmingham. Maybe London but it's quite far south.
Alternatively we could do the Evo Triangle or something like that.
I don't want to pay for a ferry so let's meet on the isle of wight
Are there any good /o/ related games for android?
Preferably for smartphone not tablet.

What's a reasonably fast, reliable car I can get for about £10-15k gbp?
It's purely a weekend/pleasure vehicle that I won't drive a whole lot but will be lavished with care, love and tasteful performance mods.
>wants to buy a front wheel drive hatchback
To my understanding used Lotus Elises are stupidly cheap in the UK, surely you can pick up a decent one for fifteen thousand quid. Be careful about wrapping yourself around a tree though.
What is the brightest/best halogen bulb on the market? The ones I have right now are shit tier
Got these from a local retailer, they light up great, look great, have had no complains whatsoever, specially with all the dumb niggas retrofitting xenons illegally.
Don't ever listen to some idiot like this.
Best bulbs in the US are Philips Xtreme Vision 100 and Osram Night Breakers. There are a few others, but they have to be special ordered so I wouldn't bother.
