Just realized that the average car on the road in my town seems to be a 2016/2017 model year car or newer, and that my car (2009) is really old compared to 80% of cars I see in traffic.

Not sure why I ever assumed that car is somewhat newish being a 2009 model year car. Maybe it's because I was thinking of 12 years in human terms and not in terms of the age of a car. I'd almost forgotten than 12 years is definitely on the old side for a conventional passenger car, and it's always been this way. It doesn't help that American consumer attitudes towards cars is "but a brand new one every few years kek"

>Anon, how old is the average car on the road where you live?

in my medium sized mexican city is like late 90`s to mid 00`s are like 60% then like late 80`s to late 70`s are like 25% old as fuck 10% new ones 5%, in bigger cities you can see more newer cars then when those car get older they move to poorer parts of the country and they are driven until thay fall apart, but Funny thing the muscle cars are now being restored many young people prefeer to restore old muscle cars that buy an entry new car.
I'm mildly blown away that my 2010 mazda cx7 is now considered old. This has factory Bluetooth and backup cam too.

How can I buy a cool car being Slavic Europoor?

Can confirm, it's nice to have small hands with either Z but the 31 is much more civilized. There's some repairs that can be a bit annoying though. Some I've come across are the ass-backwards placement of the rear washer pump, if you try to install the washer fluid reservoir with the pump installed then it'll break off the plug on the brake booster housing. If your rear washer pump goes out, fit it to the reservoir, install the reservoir, then plug it in.

The second would have to be the alternator, which is seated directly under the passenger side valve cover. It's a pain to remove if you've only got floor jacks since the entire job is under the car. Besides that, if the valve covers ever fail for any reason, your alternator takes a shit after a very oily bath.

I'll admit, I had not heard about this one. I'll have to give that a try, my driver side top just started leaking last night.

The Miata would be easier to work on, but not by a huge margin. As for room, unless you're excessively tall or overweight you'll fit comfortably in a z31.

There are two sides to this coin. Porsche forums for '80s models are absolute shite, because the clueless boomer was able to afford a fucking Porsche in their 20s. It's the same with old Bang Olufsen stereo equipment, just old wrinkly assholes that say to throw money at the problem, or leave it be, "because it was made that way", completely disregarding possible solutions. Fuck I'm mad.

Youth is a mindset, I suppose.

Bob at Camp Chaos Chronicles on youtube is a pretty based boomer though.

While you're growing up, you might as well skip the gooksoi and buy a real sports sedan with the correct amount of cylinders and a proper transmission.

Good god….today at work, an owner of a 2006 Ford Taurus brought their car in for inspection. The rocker panels were completely rotted out. The subframe was so brittle that I could shoot my index finger clean through the metal. Owner insisted I still try to inspect it and I tell them if I put that on the lift, it’s gonna shatter into pieces. He drove off and guess what happened! His car shut off because apparently the rust was so bad he also had ground issues. THAT was what finally convinced him to junk the car.

Tfw can't use the lift point because it's not there
No but it's what I'm used to. It's got air bags and shit. How fucked am I if I get in a collision with them?
Rocker panels keep the car from collapsing on itself. If you were to get into a crash with rotted out rocker panels, basically you’d get squished potentially. Air bags won’t save you in this scenario.
The frame & body & reinforcements doesn't do that?
Dude with the shitbox here. Rocker panels *are* the frame reinforcements between the wheel wells.

Hey, i lurk biz a lot but came over here due to an interest in cars. Why isnt there an ability to just swap entire shells of cars? Kind of like a plug and play with car doors, seats, shell, etc? Like why couldnt i just 3d print a lambo shell and put it over a toyota engine physically? Im not a faggot who cares too much about authenticity so is it doable?

>and is not considered "safe" to the current standards of automobile collision.
Looks pretty good to me as far as actual impact capability.

Better than only trusting sheet metal to protect you.
Cars aren't built as "shells". The chassis of the car is the body. Creating a universal standard would be impossible. Within certain manufacturers, it is possible to drop all the suspension/driveline/etc and more or less bolt it up (Subaru chiefly) but that's not normal and even then it's not a straight job.
"Sheet metal" is folded, stamped, cast etc and reinforced with crossmembers, it's not a beer can.
I’m quite aware, I’ll still take a thicker steel ladder beam frame supporting a vehicle that also has sheet metal stamped, cast, and reinforced with crossmembers over just the cheaper non frame supported options.
Yet, here you are, not contributing shit, just like those retards you're bitching about

hands that are malnourished cuz yuropoor typed this
substance abuse.
all the other fags missed it, this is the primary distinction between rednecks or hillbillies and trash. while a redneck might (or socially must) partake in alcohol and tobacco, white trash are usually into harder shit like meth, and it reflects upon them personally.
you can physically tell the difference usually, white trash are fat or pasty from sitting around inside doing drugs all day, with weak, poorly defined muscles, premature aging from drugs, and sunken eyes. the worst will be covered in scabs all over their face and arms. they are very impatient and rude people even though they have nowhere to be and nothing important to do.
rednecks tend to be tanned from working outside, maybe aged a bit from smoking tobacco, but bright eyed, and incredibly patient people. they might not be book smart but they're very intelligent problem solvers in any task.
Obese retard.

Hello /o/ brethren.
Recently, I have been doing an in depth field investigation into the source of the Hyundai shilling.
Risking life and limb, I traveled 8000 km and am currently reporting live from the scene of central Korea.

What I have discovered during the course of my investigation may shock you:
>99% of Korean IPs I have tried have been range banned.

Based on this evidence, it is my belief that the N shilling originates outside of Korea, that it is actually a false flag operation hosted by Japanese motor makers to try to muddy the waters.
Furthermore, I believe new-moot, being the Patriarchal Jap that he is is complicit with this conspiracy, range banning all of Korea to keep them silent against this operation.

is downshifting a few times before a red light a bad idea? I like to hear my engine but don't wanna break something. Started driving manual a couple months ago
101 replies and 15 images omitted. Click here to view.
There are going to be a lot of people who can't rev match who say it damages your clutch and gear box.
Anyone who has raced a manual car is fairly well practiced in down shifting.
I heel toe basically every stop light and corner I come across.
Am I perfect? no.
Is it about saving brake pads? no
It keeps me in a gear in the power band so I can effectively control the car if the need arises.

hm. ive rarely thought about it but i think a habit ive picked up is to just begin to brake, gradually applying more pressure the closer i get to needing to stop

the clutch only comes down either through looking at the rev counter and clutch fully depressed when its close to idling or, if i cant really glance at it and need more focus on the road, by listening to the engine when its close to chugging/idling through brake pressure alone

emergency stops i got taught you just brake hard first to kill the speed and get the clutch down after, think in the uk thats what they assess if you have to do an emergency stop on your driving test (or did, i think they may have actually removed that part of the test altogether in a revamp)
I don't even think about it anymore.
I rev match kick the throttle and downshift to lights.
It starts with trying it once, and once you get it, it becomes the new habit.
It's a lot of fun learning the nuances of each car.
My CRX, Camaro, RX8 and NASCAR all drive completely differently.
Rotating mass, transmissions, drive configurations, etc
If you aren't having fun, just get an automatic :P

How not? Lern2metals kiddo
it's legit in that you should rev out your engine from time to time yeah. it help clears out gunk buildup. I don't know about the 10 seconds thing exactly, but going all the way to redline from time to time is definitely a good thing to do.
my mom has a diesel she only drives short trips and never revs over like 1800rpm, and she gets problems because of this.
It's used to blow out carbon deposits from old sports car engines that were grannied their whole life, despite being engineered to be pushed to the limit.
