There are differences in cars and driving style matters more on mpg than fuel energy content.

I think FWD gets too much hate. You can have a lot of fun in a FWD car. I've gotten into watching TCR racing recently.

Why didn't diesel cars ever catch on in America?

Typical mk4 jetta/golf tdi will drive like 1000 to 1200 highway km on a tank. (600 to 750 ish miles). Will generally last forever or at least longer than the body/frame. Have usable torque. (can climb hills without having to downshift)

Comapre to your average civic, corolla etc. Will go 4 or 500 miles on a tank, engines start burning oil at like 200k miles if you're lucky. Constantly need to downshift to stay in the power band.

What is the big benefit of gas engines? Quiet? Less smelly?

Disclaimer: I'm a burger who has driven tdis my whole life and then bought a civic a few weeks ago

ELECTRIC FOR THE CITY

DIESEL FOR THE MOTORWAY

PETROL ("GAS") IS POINTLESS

Verification not required.
>>
US 70s-80s Diesels were smelly, noisy, and loud. Many like the Olds 350 were durability and maintenance nightmares. You had such vehicles like the Chevette Diesel that made 51 HP where the engine was so heavy the subframe sagged after a few years. You had things like the Lincoln Mark VII TurboDiesel that made 115HP.

They gave Diesel a bad name and nobody wanted that shit.
>>
>>25923335

To be fair a Gas v8 camaro 5.0 only had 140 Hp and a v8 mustang only had 120 hp back around 1980 and those were mostly paired with a 3speed slushbox that drained away a lot of power. so the 115 hp mk7 diesel would have had similar performance inspite of having an L6 with half the displacement

New render is what it should have looked like, the mk5 does not look like a supra, i always hear squidward bodykit thrown around on here but it's true. Cars have faces and changing the face is like changing a person but calling them the same name. I expect them to at least look related, but the new supra just looks too alien.

>Cars have faces and changing the face is like changing a person but calling them the same name
Exactly man. If you look at a first gen Porsche 911 from 1964, it has the same face as the current gen. And Porsche's are beloved by everyone. No one looks at a new 911 and says "that's not innovative" or whatever the fuck. People saying you have to radically change the look of a car each gen because "muh innovation" are retarded. Not saying you can't do that, but if you stumble upon a cool design that works well and is appreciated, you want to iterate upon it, not replace it completely.

first order of buisness is to find out what you want and need out of a car. after that the rest should be easy.

What's with the stigma against vertical headlights? It seems like every car manufacture is shifting away from them.

Never owned a motorcycle myself but I've heard that you can start off by getting a cheap carb bike and wrenching on it to learn how to work on engines. Affordable, simple, and it gives you a basic but good enough understanding of combustion engines.

don't have a car. my family never had car(cuz poor). bussed around in america for a longggg time. finally get a job that pays enough that I can fully afford a used car at the very least. know nothing about cars. no friends so can't practice on their cars(my state has a ridiculous rule where you have to complete a stupid amount of hours to get a license). insurance is a mystery to me. can't trust used car salesmen. can't trust individual sellers because there is no protection/warranty after the sale.. fuck all of this man. why is this so hard....

It takes time but only buy a car from White or Asian who live in a good neighborhood. Your chance of getting a well-maintained car is significantly higher.
Since you are young, use your puppy face to ask older people for favors. As long as you act like an upstanding young man, they are inclined to help.

Also get a Toyota or Honda as your first car.
