What do you call a drunk guy trying to start his car?
A lyft. Friends don't let friends drive drunk.

New Teslas don't come with a new car smell
They come with an Elon Musk.

While driving to work, robbers jumped into my car and stole everything.
They were pirates of the car I be in.

My last relationship ended because I didn't open the car door for her.
Instead I just swam for the surface.

I picked up a hitchhiker last night. He seemed surprised that I'd pick up a stranger. He asked, "Thanks but why would you pick me up? How would you know I'm not a serial killer?".
I told him the chances of two serial killers in a car would be astronomical.

Let's talk about the next season, expectations, rumors and the like. We have some official information:

>Renault will become Alpine F1, with 2 times world champion Fernando Alonso returning to F1
>Aston Martin returns through the Racing Point F1 Team, with Vettel Leaving Ferrari and joining them, but losing Sergio Perez.
>Ferrari loses Vettel but has signed Carlos Sainz
>Haas loses both drivers
>Mclaren will sign Ricciardo, who left Renault, they are also switching their renault enginges with mercedes power units.

I'm a bit stoked for the Alpine team, Alonso was my favorite driver as a kid, although they are keeping the same engine so there's little chance for a victory in 2021, 2022 new engine rules are being introduced so maybe there's some change.

I cannot detemine if this is a deep stratch. I tried checking it with fingernail, it doesn't get stuck when i move across it but I can still feel a slight difference. The red paint is from another car that I scratched. I tried toothpaste method, at beggining it made stratches dissappear, but when it dried out it was simmilar to before, maybe just a slight improvement.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Milwaukee 2767 high torque 1/2”, you can get the tool and 5.0 battery on sale for $250 all the time. Don’t waste time with the M18 Fuel mid-torque unless you already have the high torque, you will regret not spending $50 more. For the ratchets and smaller impacts, M12 Fuel stubby impact, honestly you can run a 1/4” hex with socket adapters and get a lot done, and they have deals on M12 stuff with free tools like the ratchet at Home Depot all the time. The cordless stuff is so much nicer to use, especially at home where you don’t have a big 240v industrial compressor.

You will never hit full power specs on most air tools with a 120v compressor. There is only so much power you can get from a 15A breaker, plus you’re tethered to a hose and won’t be able to help out a friend in his driveway or when somebody breaks down in a parking lot.

There’s a reason why tons and tons of mechanics are switching to electric, even in shops where they have good air supplies.

>at home where you don’t have a big 240v industrial compressor.
Do poorfags really?
>>
>>23248673
Lots of people have 240 in the garage, but less have $3000+ compressors.

240 is good to have, but it’s still not worth it for the compressor when cordless tools are getting so good. I love grabbing the impact without having to go deaf from the compressor and unroll air hoses, makes it so fast to pull off a wheel and check on something, plus a 4.0 battery will hold a useful charge for a year or more.

Do Jap cars have thinner metal than American?

If I buy a Jap car I'm certain it'll rust right through faster. Sure, an American might have cheaper small parts that break, but they're cheap to replace and at least I'll actually have a car/frame to still drive, rather than disintegrating. Rather than "so reliable" Jap than having it fade to dust, even if its still going.

This applies to all cars of all times. Pic related is a so called Japanese "luxury" car, I saw one in person, and the metal was hilariously tinny.


Id rather have a big engine and and strong metal at the expense of cheap plastic interiors and little things.

German cars are the best quality wise, but all that electronic over engineered fuckery makes them less reliable, even if physically the cars are good and that's too far off the deep end.

BMW's new design direction for some of its current models is controversial, to say the least. Models such as the X7 SUV, the 7 Series facelift, the new 4 Series, M4, and the recently-unveiled iX flagship electric SUV have been criticized for having massive kidney grilles that look completely out of place. And now it looks like BMW's giant grilles are inspiring car designers in China. This isn't the first time Chinese carmakers have borrowed styling cues from BMW, and it certainly won't be the last.

The Hongqi H9 luxury sedan recently went on sale in the People's Republic and it bears more than a passing resemblance to the BMW 7 Series.

Buy a new panel and replace.
Theres no way to clean that. Only option would be to redye, but that kind of plastic won't accept being redyed very well and the damage will end up always showing through.

So I've been driving a Mazda 323F BG and the stereo shit itself a while back, so i decided to get some nice sound for the car. went to the local autohifi store and came out with:
1x pioneer mvh s420bt
1x Hertz DSK170.3 6.5"
1x STP Black Silver Bulk Pack noise insulation

I've now installed it and calibrated the equalizer with some pink noise. The sound is great, but I feel like I'm missing a bit of low end compared to the genelecs i listen to at home so I was considering installing a small subwoofer off the built in amp(2x50w@4ohm + 1x70w@2ohm(22 and 30sth w rms respectively)). I have decided it would nice to put it in the backseat behind the armrest (limiting the size to about 8'') but looking at the subs I've found that their frequency responses don't actually hold up to some of the standard 6x9'' speakers.

so here comes the question, am I missing anything obvious in why a sub 8'' would be significantly better then a 6x9'' speaker?
been comparing the Hertz CPK690 6x9" and Rockford Fosgate P3SD2-8 / B2 Audio RAGE8D2 if that matters

I'm not very tempted to buy any kind of amp since I don't listen at a high volume.

If this is the wrong place please redirect me

you need displacement and power to hit the low <30hz region
have you considered powered subs?
>>
6x9 speakers are a compromise and either require you to use stupid spacers that make it sound like shit, hack up your parcel shelf or if in a hatchback make up a thick solid wood mount in place of the plastic tray in the back so it doesnt rattle itself instead of producing clean sound.

never try to run a sub off your car headunit's internal amp. its not powerful enough to drive them and it doesnt have a low pass filter so instead of a clean signal your sub is going to get all the frequencies instead of just stuff bellow 80htz and sound like shit with whatever little sound you do get out of it.

if you don't want ghetto levels of bass then an all in one underseat sub is fine as long as the built in amp has a low pass filter or your headunit's aux out has a low pass filter option.

size was limited to ~8'' so 10'' is not really an option, I also don't want to sacrifice too much trunk space.

>>23246431
I head to the cottage with my friends about once a month, its a 3h drive so music definitely helps.

>>23247137
it was because of displacement that I was considering the 6x9 instead of the 8, the hertz one promised down to about 35hz which was quite a bit below what the 8'' ones could provide. powered subs seem like a hassle and i'm not really looking to get volume out of it. if I wanted volume I'd get some 4channel amp and get the speakers and a sub the watts they can handle.

>>23247178
the entire back seat is mounted on a big piece of 11mm(I think) plywood so I figured that would be good enough with a shallow tall box mounted right on the backrest in the trunk space and probably some mounts to bolt it to the floor of the car to keep it well planted.

The specific headunit I have does have an LPF and even if it didn't I can just mount an inline capacitor with the right specs.

underseat unfortunately isn't an option since the cushion sits right on the gas tank(I think)
