post the last song that played on your way home tonight
Been waiting years to find a decent clean type r shell and was able to bring this home today. Just needs paint and my motor swapped over. 1998 Acura integra type r #352
Stupid, stupid question.
I picked up a ford fiesta SE, not an ST.
The stock 1.6L engine puts out 120 hp...
I was wondering... and again stupid fucking question.
to my understanding, the ST has the same stock engine, just turbocharged?
To the point: I was wondering if I could get more from the regular fiesta engine in a not-so-expensive way.
maybe spend $1000 bucks for a 20 horsepower increase?
engines now days are designed to run lean and anything you do would probably end up causing you to lose power if its not tuned afterwards. even highflow air filters and small shit like that.
I'm trading in my benz for an older jag. I'm saving myself 5000 a year on payments.
Will I pay more than that a year on maintenance?
are you retarded OP? euro cars are crazy expensive to maintain and have low resale value. you just left the frying pan into the fire by what you just did. if you want a good car that is easy to maintain get a honda faggot
Hold on, don't listen to this fucker.
You're looking to trade it in for an X308 jag, right? 98-2003?
I can't vouch for 2004+, but these cars are VERY reliable. Not quite as reliable in the engine as their predecessors (which I own), but that is easily fixed, and probably HAS been fixed by the owner.
You'll want to make sure the secondary timing chain tensioner has been replaced with metal instead of plastic. It's about a $1000 job if you take it to the shop, much less...

What car do i buy under 10k?
i want sporty, and preferably decent mpg, and something " normal", aka not a 83 mercury capri with and ls1 swap, or peugot or fucking 90s ricebox or something
Hey /o/ I have a question
My 2005 honda accord lx has a very frequent problem, my o2 sensors keep going out.
I replaced my downstream AND upstream sensors 2 weeks ago and they are already out again. What would be causing that? My car isn't a piece of shit by any means but it gets 18 mpg when it should be getting around 30.
TL;DR why do my o2 sensors keep going out?
I posted this yesterday that i just bought this mustang. Was driving with icw cold a/c got a wiff of gas. Got home and kept looking for a leak and i found it. :(
Is this a good first car?
>location not listed
>wrong wheel orientation
why are srt4's so expensive
also is there anyway to get rid of the neon's headlights? i want to make it more incognito
have nothing against it's great face, but the headlights are dead giveaway
For a point a to point b car not bad but he doesnt even know its fwd unless he did some huge drive train swao to awd. But anyways i would go for if i wanted a car to go to work and go get food in and save for a real car.
Do you think it's worth it buying ex rental cars/ company cars? Super high mileage but new models for cheap, people tend to rag the shit out of rental cars, full throttle dumping the clutch etc, but is it a good deal with the huge price cut?
Hertz President's Club member here. I baby cars, but I've been in cars with coworker, family, and friends and witness the abuse first hand.
Ex Fleet cars can be okay. People generally use them as point A to Point B vehicles, and while the trim can be a bit bare they are generally OK.
Anything owned by a formal rental company is a skip.
I've watched people drive first gear at highway speeds "because". Trust me.
Hey guys, im deciding on getting a 1987 celica gts for around 2K and I was wondering on what your thoughts would be about it?
What do you think about the car? Is 2K a good deal? Im thinking on getting one this weekend and I just need your ideas.
What is so bad about these? Nothing?
Seems pretty decent to me just from looking at it. Maybe the world isn't so bad after all.
Dumping some pics of a biyearly get together a guy my parents house puts on for whoever wants to show up.
The theme is rare and unusual cars as that is what he owns (many of them I don't have pictures of).
I only stopped by for 15 min, as I did in the spring (tight schedule both times unfortunately).
Next Spring I'll plan on staying the whole time because lots of people come and go throughout.
These are his Robins; he had 4, just sold one, these two run and he has a total project in blue. He plans on selling the early one in front and...

common misconceptions thread
it depends on how well you mod them. stock they handle pretty well. good luck getting over 60 with stock motor though.
pic related is mine with SPOA, 31s, and a 1.6L swap. handles like a dream on the highway.
thinking about acquiring pic/link related.
>swap in new head ($750)
>swap in new head gasket ($60)
This will be my first Diesel car, would this be a bad purchase if i could get it for 1k or maybe even under 1k
Its niggered to fuck, done a fuckton of miles, it has tons of issues, missing parts
>This car is not fit for tour average or even moderatly mechanical individual
Sounds like he is speaking from experience
Never buy a car from someone who has spent more on "SICK CUSTOM MAWDS" than actually unfucking fucked shit
I give up /o/. I've been sharking craigslist everyday for the past couple months trying to get a miata for under 2k that is not "tastefully modded bro" or just wrecked in general. I hear shit all the time on here about how people get good running miatas for a few hundred dollars. How?
Also post any really good car deals you have ever jumped on.
Because you need to get one that is modded, beat to shit or wrecked. Jesus anon you are buying a car for under 2k it is going to be a piece of shit. The reason people buy Miatas for this cheap is because even piece of shit Miatas run.
I sold my '91 Miata for $800 a while ago. It needed a new transmission, the paint was completely fucked, and it didn't have a top.
You have to pay to play, OP.
I think of used phateon - 2003 23 000zł (5 377$)
