Is owning an 10-15 year old, or even 20 years old german car really that bad and/or expensive? Is it that they break often, or that it's just much more expensive to fix them when they do break or need maintenance? How much should someone have in cash for maintenance per year?

>it’s imperative that you don’t buy a car that’s been owned by a shit head
This and LOL @ Italian tune up. Also, when you look for one pay close attention to what kind surroundings the car pics have. If it is an upper middle-class to downrich rich mansion subdivision that's the car you should look at. These are the rich boomers that baby their cars.

Lies, working on a merc is harder than a toyota.
>>
German cars (or any European cars really) are mostly built and engineered with focus on the European market.
4 cylinder and diesel engines are their regular engines and most of them are very reliable and dependable. There are tons of aftermarket parts for those cars in Europe and that makes German cars cheaper to maintain than a Toyota or a Honda.

In America people buy a lot of V6s and V8s, especially when they buy a expensive premium car. For the US market those engines are just regular engines. In European cars a V6 or V8 are considered "exotic" or premium engines. They are not built like a regular engines, they are very complicated and high tech, not easy to maintain and parts are very expensive.

Depends. We own a second hand VW Sharan. It doesn't have had much repairs over the years, but there is always some annoying small shit happening, like the ashtray falling out the mounting place in the door, front spoiler falling off and difficult to rearrange because everything is made from shitty plastic with retarded type of mounting it, battery empty over night because of some minor electricity fuckup and such things more.

Before that we had a 1994 Jeep Grand Cheroke and in comparison it had less annoying occurrences.

What is the point of buying a hothatch?

I don't mean making one, taking a cheap econobox and turning it into a sportscar sounds like the coolest project, I mean paying money for factory riced hothatches.
You are still driving a crappy econobox, but with a bigger engine, sold for BMW prices

the point is for if you're a single 20something and appreciate styling that's subtle but still cool and fast (but practical) AND you can make it faster for relatively little money compared to the base price. sure you can get an 80k mile shitbox and turbo it but it's not going to be so much fun when it's in and out of the shop especially if you only want one car as a daily.

How fucked are your car laws in your country? I'll start
Australia:
(Keep in mind it varies from state to state)
>car can't be lower that 100mm at ANY point
>wheels can't be 2 inches bigger than standard
>nearly all mods require a certificate
>losing traction (burnouts, skids, drifts) will have your car impounded
>limits on how loud it is
>10 kilometers over the limit warrants $300 fine
>drinking/eating while driving is a $300 fine
>over 0.05 BAC is over the limit
Probably more but I forget, if any Aussies want to add more feel free to do so

Switzerland here
Everything you change need to be written in a special paper (even if you just wanna change your rim size of 1 inch). And everything needs to have approval by some official authority which cost shitton of money.
If cops gets you, they'll fine you good, and send you back to vehicle inspection
literally no fun allowed

Are any of the aftermarket big break kits dailable Brembo, Stop Tech, etc? If a woman is using it too?
Is it simply a matter of using less aggressive brake pads that don't need to be glowing to work?

Is there a noticeable difference between using 4 piston rears VS 6 piston rears on a pigfat 3500lb coupe? Assuming 6 piston on the front? Saves about $1k.
