Greetings /o/
Do any of you have experience with a product like this? A local oil and lube shop offers to do headlight restoration for $45, and I've seen kits like this for sale for about $30. I don't have any experience doing this myself, but I'd like to give it a try if it's a viable option.

Oh. A pair of headlamp assemblys for my civic were about $60 on ebay. Even so, better to replace it.
Dont forget to soak your sandpaper

Hard to find

It's a secret

Research and try green container turtle wax

Its magic

Trust me
Depends what you want OP, you want it done right and not fading again? Take it to a detail shop where they can restore them then install a film to go over the headlight to protect.
I second this, or try Flitz polish and paint restorer and work it on with a polishing pad on a drill

Boomers raged that their race car transmission wasn’t smooth enough at traffic lights and now BMW won’t even develop a new DCT, manual, or an SMG. Thanks for the torque converters boomers.

PDK/DCT is good because its not as jerky as SMG's pump at traffic speeds, its just not good on the track only because its heavy, not that it really matters for hpde, and if you want to go the opposite way the DCT thinks you do its not so fast anymore.

Not that its ever as slow as a manual.

Doesn't really matter, because DCT and manuals are dead, and SMG is very dead.


All hail slushbox autos.
You think planetary autos, but with a clutch, like AMG transmissions are gonna get popular?
I explained it because for a DCTs shift time it matters how you measure it:
>no gear engaged
0 ms
>time after disengaging clutch and before engaging next gear
negative time
>total time the gearbox is doing something
Pretty long, probably half a second or something
>time where two gears are engaged at the same time
VERS short time
yes, primarily because BMW drivers are becominng normies and normies want to know why their $100k BMW m5 has jerky shifts.

BMWs ZF8 has a torque converter just for launches almost as a response to SMG hate.

I think Gm/Fords 10 speed has like 4 clutches on a planetary gear system?

Again, in todays market normons who have the money want 'sports' cars but not actually sporty cars. Smooth shifts are key. Fast shifts? Why?.

AMG is smooth and slow but who tracks an AMG? I've literally never seen one show up.

it makes a huge difference if youre on an imperceptible roll too, less to overcome. theres actually the '1 foot rollout' as well to think about when comparing to stock times.

i'd be interested to see these cars from a 50kmh dig or something instead, less variables.

might give it a try, but i guess you need to wear a gopro or something to film it on a stick shift.
This V8 is running REALLY de-tuned.

If you compare it to >>20430929 and >>20430938
It should be somewhere between these two, but it's slower than the 9-5 which is some 2-2.5 or whatever liter engine.
You guys are slow as fuck

Stop my dumb ass from buying a fucking Chevy.

Budget: 26k, preferably less-- much less honestly
Need: Something fuel efficient that can take 15-20k miles a year for the next decade and not bankrupt me at the gas station. My secondary concern is no CVT or turbo with egregious lag or anything that doesn't handle nicely-- not really interested in something that's fun to drive just something that's not completely uninspiring, I'm going to be spending a lifetime in the damn thing.

I've test driven a 2018 Malibu Hybrid and it's got a pretty nice demeanor, handles nicely and responds quickly to the throttle.

I'm looking to test drive a Camry Hybrid soon, I don't know what to expect but it'd have to be a damn sight better to be worth the amount of money it costs over the Chevy.

I'll one up you there anon.

Yeah the modern tune ecu is also an app, gg on reading my post. Now go post onsa in dbt
Used to be and (?still is?) that the crank sensor in a distributor less ignition dont give a fuck if it is the compression or exhaust stroke and, therefore, fires the plugs after every upstroke.
ECU, the ability to look at a datalog after a run is invaluable.
Magneto is a best.

if you dont tell them, then yeah, youre a cunt

desu though youre right about the price (provided it didnt have a crash and the gearbox isnt totally fucked)

goodluck selling it over a VE SS though, theyre around the same price

Nissan said their target market for that was middle-aged mothers who'd grown used to SUVs and CUVs and who's kids recently went off to college meaning they didn't have to haul kids around anymore.

Okay, so most people know that Keyboard Cat is old VHS footage of Fatso the Cat created by a guy named Charlie Schmidt. What that footage was originally used for was the intro to a skit comedy show that Schmidt and his friend Gerry Cook pitched to Comedy Central back in the 90s called Earl's TV Repair (with music by Fatso the Cat).
Charlie and Gerry met working at a TV prop & effects studio in Spokane, WA in the 80s. They did motion control photography for commercials, channel bumps, etc. Gerry did the old pinball machine Monday Night Football opening. If you watched American TV in the 80s-90s you've seen something they did. On their off time, they made an independent short film called Only a Buck, in which Charlie played this awkward guy who would come up with all these weird inventions, basically he was playing Gerry. His character drove a beat up blue Manta that was, you guessed it, actually Gerry's Manta (and still his favorite car to date). After they finished it, they rigged up a box van as a camper (picture related) and toured around the country.
While they were in Los Angeles trying to line up press spots, they were in a traffic jam and spotted Rob Reiner a few cars over, so Gerry shouted "Hey, Meathead!" at him to which he tried to ignore, but Gerry is not to be denied and this lead to a cross traffic shouting match with Rob Reiner.
I know this because I used to work for Gerry. After he got out of TV he ran a small photo studio doing motion control product photography and I was his post-production supervisor for a while.
The h-body has no European dna besides its pininferina design concept
>TheChevrolet Monzais asubcompact, four-passenger automobile produced byChevroletfor the 1975–1981model years. The Monza is based on theChevrolet Vega, sharing itswheelbase, width and 140-CID (2,300 cc)inline-fourengine. The 1975 Monza 2+2 was designed to accommodate the GM-Wankelrotary engine, but due to mediocre fuel-economy and emissions-compliance issues the engine was cancelled, and a fuel-efficient, 4.3-liter & 5.7-liter V8 engine option was substituted (Wikipedia)

So much for the American education system failing me on late 70s sport compacts, why bring up such Reddit European condescending shit anyway?
That's a epic story man!
