Isnt this shit just begging for you to get hijacked? All someone needs to do to steal such a car is stick a wide piece of cardboard on the road at night and wait for you car to forcibly stop even if you don't want to stop.

A gas chamber might be more efficient but nothing is more entertaining than loading up a T*sla with undesireables and crashing it into a wall. Now that I think about it electric cars are literally built for genocide since they cremate the bodies after the crash in a nice hot lithium fire

I had 95 Z28 that would do something similar. I gave up after a few months and let my uncle fuck with it. He said he messed with some wiring under the dash and it seemed to fix it, but he didn't explain exactly what he did. My cousin has it now and I don't think they have any problems with it anymore. Has a coilpack conversion on it now, too.

Who even needs that grip? Hundred years of racing and they haven't figured out how to really race, like the Japanese did.

They say drifting wears out tires more. Why do you even need tires? Just run bare wheels. And you should just put 3 wheels on a car for more drift, or better yet, rotating shopping cart wheels.

>>22613484
Put a self tapper in the frame and run a “whatever gauge” you have around wire from self tapper to device and you have a definition reference point for ground.

But I wouldn’t even worry about that, all your cars equipment is grounded, if you’re plugging in some aux bullshit you aren’t gonna fry anything.

>>22613546
Not sure if it exists for other car makes as it's made for a Mk5 Golf/Rabbit but I just searched for a "golf 5 aux" and voila! Pretty sure there must be an equivalent for your car.
>>
>>22613484
it looks like the yellow cable is ground, so it is grounded via radio
>>
>>22613484
You don't need one, it's a plastic housing and the input itself is earthed through the connector that goes into the radio.

Eurofag here,

Looking into buying a 2 seater sports car. Not really into jdm cars, pretty much only looking at German cars.

From what I have considered it comes down to a tie between a Mercedes SLK and an Audi TT.

Which one would you pick and why?
(any other suggestions are also welcome)

Used SLKs are all falling apart. They are owned by women so they werent maintained and they are Mercs so they are shit. Do not do this

>>22615091
Lmao what? I can understand you being butthurt because you see middle age women driving a car that is more luxurious and comfortable than what you will ever be able to afford, but now you’re triggered by the Cayman GT4 too? Does Porsche only produce the 911 Turbo S? Is that the only Porsche? Piss off Faggot.
>>
>>22610755
"Porsches are boring and for boomers" Well then what would you suggest? OP asked for a German car two seater and an Audi, BMW, or Mercedes are 10x more boring and are even more so for old men than Porsches are.
>>
>>22613000
Have you seen the 992? If anything Caymans and Boxsters are more true to 911s of the past than any other modern Porsche.

There's your problem.

What's the issue with budget gas like United Oil with the same octane as non-budget gas? If it has filler, what is the filler? Google is not giving me specifics.

Ethanol and horse cum

>>22616137
There isn't any difference.

I go to the expensive gas station in my area because it's well lit so there are never any niggers there

How much would you pay for the last year of the last generation Honda Prelude with less than 5000 miles on it? It's even the Canadian market only SE trim which was only offered in 2001.

THIS
but seriously this

So i'm pretty sure this happened to my 2012 impreza, 92k miles:

https://www.thedrive.com/news/30776/toyota-and-subaru-face-class-action-lawsuit-over-fr-s-brz-valve-spring-recall-fiasco

I had the recall done about 3 weeks ago, and since then the check engine light has come up 3 times

the first time they said the spark plug cracked when they rebuilt it

the second time (after replacing that spark plug) they said they didn't' really know, but they 'hard reset' (or some such shit) the computer and drove it 12 miles and it was fine

I pick it up today and drive it twice (like 7 miles home and then 5 ish miles to the grocery store and back later on)

on my way back, right around mile 12 of having the car, it starts bucking like it did the other times (in second gear, stick), the check engine light comes up and oscillates between blinking and steady. also cruise control and anti traction lights (also like the other times)

I'm going to bring it back to Subaru tomorrow but I wanted to get some feedback if anyone has some?
