What are your favourite iridium (or better) spark plugs for your vehicle? I've been thinking about getting the new-ish NGK Ruthenium spark plugs for my Buick. But I'd like to hear what you guys like.

I put those plugs into my Datsun U20, still haven't gotten it to run and good and it used to. For the money I am not impressed at all.

Unless you upgrade the ignition system with a MSD unit, then copper NGKs are the way to go on a Datsun.
Had the NGK Irridium plugs on my 280zx and it ran like shit so switched back to the copper ones and it's much better.
Old engines from 40 years ago need the increased surface area of the copper plugs and not the fine point of more modern ones for a better fuel combustion ratio.
Datsun is awesome.

The best spark plugs are new spark plugs.
Just get copper/oem and stop buying meme plugs.

My father traded in his Camry for a Highlander.
He lives alone. No grandkids to haul around. No pets. Nobody has ever sat in the backseat of his car.
So why did he buy a $40,000, 3-row, 8-seater SUV?

No ragrets. It's a fantastic crossover, has taken 190,000 km in 4 years with nothing but standard maintenance. It's reeally not a car for people that love cars.

I hope you die on your mother’s birthday

So I'm finally at the point in my career where I can afford buy a luxury sedan by the end of the year. I know this topic has been beat to death many times over but I'm just so torn. For reference, my current car is a VW Jetta. I have to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed it, as it is manual and all around a pretty fun car to drive. Now, it has had it's fair share of maintenance issues, and just only passed 120k miles this year, but I can't help feeling that German vehicles are more driver oriented, fun to drive, and I personally enjoy the more simplistic/modest designs. My first car was a toyota avalon, and although it's been a while my preference remains.

I am looking at either the Audi A5/S5, or the Lexus GS 350 F Sport. I have driven my friend's A4 and found it similar to the Jetta albeit more refined. I suppose I should test drive the Lexus and see if it does it for me, but I know I am already heavily biased. I have driven an older model Lexus, and found it was a smooth ride but all too rigid. My problem is that I am trying to make a wise financial decision. I am not leasing my next vehicle as I do not wish to be jewed by interest and high insurance payments. We all know the meme that is German engineering breaking down and high maintenance costs, however If you look at the JD Power Dependability ratings you find some German brands near the top. At that point, why not just buy a BMW or a Porsche? My main question is pretty much this. Are the maintenance costs really that much more for German vs the Japanese brands? How do they differ from each other ie. Audi vs BMW? And lastly I'd like some input from those of you who have owned one of these brands, or even better both at some point.

I have indeed. Read lots of how Genesis customer satisfaction is high along with typical Asian reliability. Don't see them on the road very often but do have to admit that they catch the eye. Like how the G70 is offered in manual, will have to consider giving it a test drive as well.

No, I'm saying that the government should stop protecting the spurious property claims of people who technically own property and yet have done absolutely nothing to use or improve it.

I'm also saying the BLM is not a good thing and does not have your best interests at heart. If it sold off even 5% of federal lands, it would absolutely tank the price of land to the point where just about anyone could buy a plot without even needing a loan. What you'd see is not a concrete jungle, since that's a side effect of cramming lots of people into small areas. Instead, we'd get deurbanization as people leave cities they can't afford to live in to claim their homestead.

Adding turbo to a modern fuel injected car is expensive to make it reliable, you're better off getting a turbo car stock.

What's the best bmw forum? I don't want to keep spamming up the board with my project car questions.

Since I've already made this thread though, I may as well ask. Unfortunately I don't have a picture, I'll take one tomorrow when I go back to the garage, but I bought this e36 325i. So far so good but the previous owner put an M3 bumper on it and it is clear to me that it doesn't fit correctly. The bumper is about an inch too far forward at the wheel well and there is also a gap between the inside of the headlights and the nose panel.

I'm thinking about just picking up a stock bumper anyway, but I wanted to see if this is a common /known issue with a simple solution. Maybe M3 bumpers have different mounting points than 325i bumpers and need to be modified. Idk. Just asking. Thanks

My thought process is; people in my economic level pay 400+ for rent, but I have the option of just living with my parent for free or room with my brother for 200. Instead of paying rent I could just pay a car loan, build credit, and have fun.
