Ford or chevy is for sure the way to go for a first classic. Lots of chevys you can practically build out of a catalog. Anything by Mopar, AMC, Studebaker, or other wacky ass companies is guaranteed to be a parts nightmare in most cases.

Nobody? I was taught to do this as well but I'm too lazy to, I only do it in extremely heavy traffic. You should actually be thankful when people do this. They're making a buffer zone in case the person behind them wasn't paying attention and slams into them at high speed. That way they have a gap between them and you, as they are both forced forward from the impact, and might have enough room to not hit you. Of course they don't really give a shit about you when they do this, and it's just so the insurance is less complicated because they only have to deal with one collision and not two, but it still benefits you when people do this. You could fucking drive away without a scratch instead of being rear-ended. Be thankful.

You..... Have no idea how insurance or driving works, do you?
>>
>>23473219
Based fucking retard

Stop when you ought to stop and stay stopped. A normal safe following distance is enough.
You should be able to see the tires on the car in front of you if you're scared about being pinned in or something.
'Doing something nice' is how traffic dangerous, that's where the term 'wave of death ' comes from.

All you need to do is what's expected of you an literally nothing more

Majority of new cars sold today have very poor visibility outside and most of all it is nearly impossible to figure out the dimensions of your car because of the shape. It's easier to reverse a van or box truck, because the car actually ends where it ends in your mirror, unlike on a Qashqai or CX-3 for example

Why are new Audi/bmw/mb cars so goddamn ugly? Are there really people who unironically go into a dealership and pay for these cartoonish cars?

>>23467503

MB has completely lost it, all their cars look like featureless bars of soap on the outside and RGB-laden screens and cheap-looking design on the inside. It is absolutely staggering how shitty they've gotten.

BMW is teetering at the edge, everything they make is pigfat and their newest designs are some of the worst I've ever seen. My neighbor paid nearly 60k for a 430i and I want to strangle him, the dealer, and the designer of that car.

Audi still makes good looking cars and has the best interiors in class, but jesus christ are they edging towards having absolutely nothing fun or interesting in their lineup. All their offerings are so muted compared to what they could be. Still currently the best of the three.

So you are saying that they can remain at optimum engine speed forever in a drag race, and always beign the fastes around? That sounds awsome, why would you not buy them?
>>
>>23472334
They are all made out of glass.
>>
They can do that with the proper tu ing, of course. But now we have karens complaining the car doesn't shift and they all make fake shifting whici intentionally cuts power so it seems that it shifts, kind of defeating the advantage if cvts.
And also the reliability is still a big issue, no one wants a car that grenades its cvt at 100000 km and which costs a lot if money to fix - that's if anyone will touch it.
>>
>>23472588
this and they only put them on boring engines that sound like shit

Does anyone here have experience withs mercedes GLE’s? When I speed up, this icon of my car comes up to my display dashboard and the hood blinks red along with a beeping noise. I have no ides what it is and can’t find any information about it, can anyone offer any advice?
>>
it prolly thinks ur hood isn't latched. maybe something with the sensor that checks the hood latch? u still have warranty?
>>
>>23472790
It only happens when I speed up so I doubt that its that. Thankfully I do, but it’s 22:00 at where I am and cant call anyone or do anything about it and I need to drive home
>>
Check the hood, slam it hard and see if the error still appears. Most likely some stupid sensor of the hood is dirty or went bad. How old is the car?
>>
Lmao
>closed hood sensors

I get that the engine needs to suck air through a filter, but how does putting it inside a box help? Seems like it would reduce airflow, making the performance worse?

Also I've seen a lot of images of turbos without any filters. That seems like a very bad idea to me. Wouldn't dust get into the combustion chamber if turbo is free to suck whatever it wants?

How you liking the GMMG? Considering it for my 350 TPI turdgen. Got just a Borla muffler on it right now but it's incredibly quiet.

Also get some tubular LCA's and panhard rod with poly bushings, they make the car so much better :^)

Swapping out the rear end on these cars is easy.
Undo control arms on axle, undo shock bolts on axle, remove driveshaft, remove panhard rod off axle, remove brake lines, remove parking brake lines. Can be lowered out with a floor jack.

I'm considering buying a VW golf.
Only problem is I'm 197CM (6'4) and 100kg (220lbs).
I don't fit in my mums Carolla which I've been driving ever since my car broke down.
Do any of you have any relative experience with this?

Unironically can fit 4 adult males at 6ft or slightly over with very little issue or if a fifth needs to sit centre. It opened my eyes to how dumb crossovers actually are as a design philosophy when I got an MQB platform hatchback

what years/gen should be avoided? iirc mk6 golfs and gtis had loads of little engine problems

Mk5 golf has plenty of room. I've driven my 6'3 friend plenty of times and he fits fine. You should test it out beforehand regardless though.

I'm 6'4 both mk4 and mk5 lots of leg room. Lots of head room. Lol at passenger behind.
