Well actually I think that serial productions of Bugatti started in Alsace wich was German territory during war and then go back into France possession
It's shit
>founded in 1909 in the then-German city of Molsheim, Alsace
Well, Bugatti is mixed French, German, and Italian. For now, it is determined to be a french car engineered heavily by Germans.

Why are car prices rising so fast? Today a fucking small city car like a Yaris costs more than a Chevrolet Captiva 4x4 SUV a few years ago. Wtf is this clownworld?

As other anon said, financing. Consumers only care about the monthly payment, not the final cost.

Cost of the car becomes less relevant when you can finance for 84 months. Just wait for the next global recession in a year or two and cars will be cheap again as auctions and wholesalers get flooded with repossessed cars. More people are underwater on auto loans right now than at any other time in history.
Most bought cars are around 10-15k. We are really poor compared to the west like germany

>upgrading an electric car
>Model 3 Performance will be under 20k

They're not exactly common so I can see them being overpriced for being rare
You're still going to pay out the ass for a bone stock model in 10 years. I'd say around 80% of them I see are heavily riced out.
>upgrading an electric car
I'm not sure what the problem is that you're having trouble getting your mind around. This is fairly easy. Buy a cheap high-mileage used electric car. Take out the old battery, and controller. Put new ones in that offer reduced weight and higher performance.

>Model 3 Performance will be under 20k
Unlike a lot of other performance cars people are actually buying them to drive them, there's going to be a lot of them with north of 100k miles that are still perfectly fine mechanically but seeing depreciation not much better than a gas car with those kinds of miles.

There's already companies doing this for older EVs, as well as performance upgraded EV conversions.
Model 3 is selling like hotcakes so there's going to be millions of them on the road making for decent aftermarket.
The cheapest on autotrader is £7k, it will be worth pennies in a few years

Right off the bat, I know nothing about cars. All I know what I’m supposed to do when looking for a used car is to look for low mileage, and to check if it’s rusted to shit. Now that that’s out of the way, I want to hear all your opinions on what is considered a “reliable” car.

The cars I’m looking at so far are (in my opinion) the best looking cars for my price range and personal preference.

My options:
>1997-2001 Toyota Camry
>1997-2001 Lexus ES300
>2001-2002 Toyota Corolla
>2001-2003 Subaru Impreza

One of these bad boys are what I’m probably going to settle for since they’re cheap, and don’t take premium gas.

Any buying tips, recommendations, and information would be greatly appreciated.

You should finance a new Mitsubishi Mirage or a Nissan Versa if you have any credit at all.

U ok

Do you want to replace your shitty from factory headgaskets? If yes, go for it.

If you're not a car person, you cannot go wrong with a Corolla or Camry, they are the ubiquitous cars for people who don't give a shit about cars.

Fuck reliability, fix it if it breaks. Get a BMW E60 535i or an E90 335i, dirt cheap if you find one that's beat to shit and minor mods can get those fuckers to over 400hp. Also, people who complain about the reliability are retards who never owned one of these. It's expensive, but it's not that bad, usually $600-$800 a year if you do the work yourself.

would you mind if you saw this while driving?

>makes use of already ugly infrastructure

Boy reading sure is hard huh
Yeah I would mind because wind turbines become useless pieces of shit after 15 years. What's the point when the street lights already have power going to them? These would not make enough power to bother backfeeding it into the grid. This would sort of make sense for remote lighting but then a solar panel does the same thing with no noise and bird rekking.
>They wouldn't make enough power
>Bird wrecking
Oh a liberal environmentalist no wonder your post is retarded.
Something that size would run the two street lights. Wind turbines have shitty size to power ratios. I don't give a fuck about the birds but libtards will. Birds like making nests on top of the lights so you can just imagine the shitshow these things would generate.
This is the sad reality, all our nuclear infrastructure is designed around perpetuating waste to build bombs. Which is why we haven't built any of the modern reactors that could actually clean the problem up.

Well maybe it's not so bad with a high end 8 speed but torque converters sound bad, I want to hear the sound of the engine directly coupled to the driveline.
>09 ISF
>This car is supposed to be my nice cruiser
The IS is an uncomfortable pile of shit, what the fuck made you choose it for that?
My 30 year old 4 speed sounds just fine idk wtf you're on about
I know exactly what you mean, a manual will always sound better as you get that pause on the gearshift whereas auto has that kinda sad drop in engine note. It’s not too bad on this car, high rpm sounds almost sequential-like

Old autos are worse for it usually, but yeah having a torque converter doesn’t make it sound inherently bad

Which one have you driven?
It’s not as comfortable as my 300zx but it was fine on my last 4h trip
Yeah this was another concern. I’d want to be able to revert to stock for when I sell

The Reliant Robin isn't a car. It's a motorcycle, legally.
They're also why my dad got his car license. My mother rolled their Reliant Robin on a roundabout, and was so embarrassed by having done so that she browbeat him into getting a proper license and proper car.

Looking at things now, she should have continued on and made him get a proper driving instructor, and she also should have learned to drive something with three wheels herself, considering she's rolled her mobility scooter the same way.

We live in a society

I’m quite tall around 6’7” and am looking for a good used first car.

I originally had my eye on a 2008 Honda Pilot for around 5Gs.

Until I went to a dealership and sat in a 2011 Honda CRV to see if I could fit and my knees were like an inch away from the wheel meaning if I turned the wheel my fingers would get jammed in between my legs and the wheel.

Would I possibly fit in a 2008 Honda Pilot or is it the same size as a 2011 CRV?

If not then I might settle for a 2003 Toyota 4Runner. That I hopefully will fit in.

Anyone have any other recommendations too? I mainly want a Honda or Toyota that I can fit in.

I had a 6'8" friend who drove a mid-2000s Renault Mégane with no reported issues.

Chris Greener, pic related, was 7'7" and drove a converted mini (note lower case spelling).

What's your excuse?

Honda Element maybe? I feel like the Rav4 is just going to be about the same as the CRV for you.
Think is also depends on if youre more leggy or torso. I'm 6'5 mostly legs and can fit in a corolla, its a pain getting in and out but I manage
>VW Golf
One of the old "New Beetles" would be a shockingly good fit. Had a '99, there may legitimately been 8 feet of headroom.

You're statistically less likely to die in a self-driving car than a human-driven one. Just because self-driving-car fatalities have more coverage doesn't mean the opposite.
>Citing statistics for something that has been out for a hundred years versus a decade at most
Also a self driving car should be zero. It has already failed.

They currently do that in the Dominican Republic, fucking based!
