Why would this not be something that disconnects automatically when the airbags deploy?
AFAIK it does, but the automatic disconnect might fail. It's a Tesla, after all.

Can kids your age even drive yet?
They're too ugly, beat up, gas guzzling. Just get a jap econobox my friendo.
>For college yes. You can grab one for pretty cheap. If you want to keep it around for awhile, I would recommend you try to find a 2006 and later Mercury Grand Marquis. The 2006 and later replaced the intake manifold with an aluminum one (where as the 2005 and a few years earlier were a hardened plastic type deal that has a tendency to fail around 60,000 to 80,000 miles.) That alone will save you about $550 in repair costs, or about $250 and your time spent if you just buy a Ford performance intake online. If you are commuting highway to college, you can expect about 22 mpg if you snag a decent one. Consider these cars are made to last and take a beating. This includes the body of them. You get into an accident, you are probably going to be fine with a few aches and pains if it was at a decent speed. That and a used bumper or fender which will cost you around $30 to $70 from a scrapyard. They are easy and relatively cheap to repair, and upgrade. Parts are plentiful. As you can already probably tell, Grand Marquis and Crown Victorias (panther platforms) are my passion, and they are basically all I buy, and I've had more than a few. If you can get a Mercury Marauder for a decent price (1,500 with a few problems - 4,500) You buy that thing. They hold their value and you will be glad you did. Don't garbage it up with big useless rims. you will crash it running rubber band tires. These cars last easy up to 300,000 with regular maintenance.
Yes. I just fell for the panther meme and got a cvpi from an auction to use for a daily beater and I love it already. Its the smoothest riding vehicle I've ever owned. Soaks up every bump. I used to not care about that shit but I guess I'm getting older (28 year old boomer) and it's nice to get in something to ride home in that is comfy and soft. Also they're reliable as fuck. Fuel economy isn't bad at all on the highway considering it's a big car with a v8. I actually am a full time student myself. Sold my truck to get out of the payment so I could afford going to school.
>greentexting that entire paragraph

Only 360 TLX ‘handmade’ PMCs being made and you get a paint job. It is a nice paint job, but you think they would have thrown in a twin turbo or a V8. And look at those fog lights... still the gross circular ones of this year. C’mon Acura, why would I buy this when I can get a Sentra Nismo for half the price??

They have a TT V6 type S coming. They've said so already, so you just gotta wait
>not investing in multiple rare Nismo Sentras while you still can
Really hoping they make a 6 speed MT type S or at least have a the new 10 speed Honda auto they’ve been touting
that's a buick v8 that some british faggots ruined by attaching it to a shitty vehicle then sold to the japanese

Is it really the worst car ever made?

Nobody payed a premium for Priuses though and Tesla is popular worldwide not just hollywood. if people see something as premium then its premium. remember, people actually pay lots of money to drink coffee made from beans that was pooped out by an animal. its seen as a luxury so it is, ignoring the physical properties. Tesla wouldn't be the first car with shitty build quality people considered a luxury and exclusive buy.
>see: 80s Ferraris
Imagine buying American... ever.
HAHAHAHAAH this is what happens when you let mobile phone tier fags make cars
luckily my versa is the 4-sped automatic pre 2012, how fucked I'd be if I had a 2012 with a cvt, which would of failed before reaching 100k miles
>Nobody payed a premium for Priuses
I remember when those Pri-i showed up and the dealers around here had them marked up already and they were still selling for well over 30K. 'Go Green', and all that tree hugging bullshit.
Pretty sure the Echo was still kicking its ass in MPG at the time and you could have that shitbox for a whopping 8K out the door. Isn't that why Toyota changed the Echo to Yaris, cause they knew the Echo was a better MPG bucket but they couldn't allow it to out do the precious Prius.

Personally automobiles really isn't my field but because I have British bias I thought I'd ask what /o/ thinks of Vauxhall and perhaps some other makes like Jaguar and Land Rover.
isn't this a buick? are they sharing a platform or something?
Isn't that an Opel/Holden? Yes they are sharing the GM E2XX platform.
It's all of the above. Really, they should never have called it a Commodore in Australia.
Owned by Peugeot now. It boils my piss when adverts for them point out its been a British brand since 1909.

This might be a dumb question, but in the state of Georgia, is a motor vehicle receipt the same thing as the vehicle registration, or would that be a different document?

I just want to make sure my documents are all squared away in case I get pulled over.
>is a motor vehicle receipt the same thing as the vehicle registration
Why would you even think this?
The registration is proof you've registered the vehicle with the state DMV or tax collector.

Because I got this and nothing that directly stated 'registration'. This has basically all the registration stuff on it, so I was confused.

I figured out the mystery, though. The registration was attached to the top of this and I guess I must have thrown that portion away. It's been a long week.

Georgia is such a backwards inbreed state, I would high tail it to Mississippi as soon as possible.

The paper that you got your plate sticker from is your current car registration.
Imagine having to pay tax every year based on the current estimated market value of the car you've owned for years

Hello my anons.
I bought this truck at an auction, was listed as a flood vehicle.
At the time I was 17 and had 3.5k saved up. Old man went up to me and said "Anon ,Ill double your amount if you want a truck."
So we ended paying around 6k for this salvage vehicle.
Took me two whole years to replace transmission, clean fuel system, buy new batter, and buy new calipers.
During those two years everyone shitted on me for not having a car, that I bought a piece of scrap metal. My social status dropped thanks to my former friends stopped hanging out with me calling me "dead weight".
When this truck was finally finished I realized it came with a nice exhaust system and alpine sound system, the engine sound made everyone' jaw drop.
This truck normally costs around 18-20k where I live.

Could I have done anything better?

Damn, that's a shame. Sounds really neat regardless. If I could have any truck, I think it would be that sort of setup, but on a one ton frame, CCLB, with SRWs. And working 4x4, of course. Any idea what happened to it?
Hey, it took me 4 months to swap the motor on my zx6r. Looking back it isn't that hard, but it's stressful
no idea, we were just sort of acquainted, had a few mutual friends, but didn't really know each other well. I haven't seen the truck since high school but I've heard he's in the area as a diesel tech for a local trucking company (and I would guess he's somehow involved with the scrap yard too, it's something like a family business)
What happened to the truck anon?
>Why didn’t you buy a running truck for 6k?


>Then for 2 years not be a loser without friends.
>No body cares that you drive a ram 1500.
>No ones going to hear the sound system.

I know fuck all about cars but i love to look at them and watch them, but i went to a car meet with a friend and can't join in the conversations or identify the cars. How the hell do you even get into the car scene?

Make sure you have a reliable car first and now buy one that semi sporty and wrench on it thats basically what i did besides having an already reliable car and im decently into cars I am no expert but I can appreciate them more now now that I have worked on one.
These are pretty good. Also if you like a particular car or if you have a car, look at the different trims and identify what makes them different from each other.
Wrenching. Nothing worse than posers who can't wrench, but have all the time in the world to recite shit they've heard or watched while sitting in passenger seats on their way to car meets.
10 years ago I'd have told you to get a subscription to sport compact car and find a dedicated online forum, now I have no idea.

>Are you expecting major repairs on a yearly basis?
you can get a upgraded turbo or single turbo 335i car for 15k, well sorted too. itll have an updated high pressure fuel pump and injectors more than likely because those fuck up if youre running old parts on 600whp. those cars just need the power at a tame level if the engine is not built and tires and oil changes

Should I get a slightly used BRZ + Edelbrock S/C or a slightly used 230i + LSD + tune?

Particular BRZ I'm looking at:

Holy shit how did you fuck up this bad? Spend like 2 minutes thinking about it. You're compressing 500cc of volume ~10 fold. Would it make sense to mold a completely different rod or shave the pistons a little bit to achieve the compression for a certain engine sub model.
Pick the car that has more than 200 hp
I own a FRS and it’s fun, I’d go for a brz that hasn’t been modified. Its not fast off the line but you can drive it fast and keep quick during cornering. A lot of people dismiss the car that haven’t even driven one before, it’s really a lot of fun.

The 2017 BRZ manual has 205 hp
The 230i weighs quite a bit more but it also has a better interior than the BRZ. So I guess choose BRZ for sporty or 230i for comfy. Tough choice.

Oh sure, go to iloveevos.com I'm sure they will give you unbiased information regarding the evo.
Far better than a forum where nobody here has or ever will own an evo.
Up to you to sort out the asskissers on the forum with genuine advice.
Yes? They own and drive EVOs unlike bus riders on here.
Places like that will actually go into the nitty gritty of whats shit about that particular car.
Don't buy one from a rust state, they rust like a 1970s Datsun
Expect 15-18mpg
Expect lots of cars with salvage/rebuilt titles
Expect broken ACD pumps
Timing Chain was revised in 2011 models (prior would stretch and could jump timing)
DCT is kinda shit in MRs unless rebuilt (Kozmic or Dodson)
+200lbs over a Evo 8/9 without feeling like a total shitbox
Fuel starvation is a issue if being tracked/over 500whp
They're better than most people give them credit even without the 4G63 meme engine
Its definitely better than any Subaru

Are Chery and other chinks coming to stay? Here in hueland they built factories and are offering awesome sedans and SUVs cheaper than the competition and in some cases, better quality too. Plus a 5 year guarantee in case it blows up.
Can someone nuke the developing world or will all the truck drivers kill everyone before that happens?
Geely make decent cars. Have a Changan CS15 and it's really nice. AISIN transmission, Bosch breaking system, I don't rev or race so the rest is irrelevant.
Won't sell in America. Then again, most American car companies use cheap chink parts and build them in other countries. But at least they pretend to be American. China has a long way to go before it is accepted by the car buying public. Honda and Toyota were considered a joke back when they first came, and now they are some of the best car manufacturers around. Personally I just don't see China being capable of that.

Lol hardly. I drive big trucks. You want to see a blind spot? Try not even having any rear windows at all. But because I pay attention to the road, I don't have to worry about it. Just use your mirrors.
blind spot monitoring is fine - designing cars in a manner that makes it a necessity is not

How much would /o/ expect to pay for replacing the gasket on the oil pan of a 03 mustang GT given you have to drop the K member

I got quoted 650, does that sound like way too much?
300 plus parts tops

do it yourself
Do it yourself for like, 50 bucks.

Drain Oil
Remove motor mount bolts
Lift engine or use 2 floor Jacks to lift engine upwards
Remove oil pan bolts
Remove oil pan (engine may need lifted higher for clearance)
Clean surfaces and replace gasket
Reattach oil pan
Fill with oil and change oil filter,
Reconnect motor mounts
Triple check for leaks

You really cant unless you are a mechanic with an engine hoist etc
