How do normies do this? Just walk into a dealer and tell them they need tires? How do even the most destitute of people not take the time to see if the $30 difference will make or break their tire choice?

>buying from the mexican tire place
just buy from https://www.champtires.com/ (or any other decent online place that has good pictures) and get them installed, balanced and inflated from walmart or do it yourself.
those mexican tire places dump tires illegally all the time and store them outside and are usually fronts for drug running.
Just get Toyos, or whatever else is cheap and good

Anon, don’t let your dreams be memes. Pic related was “my car” until I took a hard look sold my shitbox and made it happen IRL

Life is too short to drive cars that don’t give you a shit eating grin

I'm looking at buying a used RAV4 in the 10k price range. I'm in Europe and for that money I would get something in the range of 2008-2012 at about 130k-200k km's. It seems that many of the models where used by construction workers or farmers and seem pretty abused on the inside.

What would recommend looking out for with these models? I think they are still quite pricey, even in less then ideal conditions. But if they are as good as people claim, how much millage can I expect without major issues? Would you dare going for an automatic at this age? I would highly prefer auto, but I understand that it's a huge gamble with used cars.

Any alternatives aside from the obvious ones Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester? From what I see the RAV4 is probably more reliable, but the others are significantly cheaper. So I don't know.

Well at least everybody here is leasing Audis, because they are incredibly expensive. We are talking like 80-120k on average here. So they don't give a fuck if they break down, everything is insured anyways. But ask a car mechanic what he thinks of them. The whole VAG holding is fucked, but Audi is among the worst of them. The best part is that they charge you double if not triple per hour and parts are all way more expensive and they have planned obsolescence parts, that can easily be replaced but cost way to much for what they are (like little windows things and stuff).
You will probably find this out soon enough. Even the balkan retards start noticing that this brand is completely shit.

Btw. my gfs father had these Audis as company cars. I think all of them where automatic A4s from around the 2010s. He basically got them replaced three times in a row, all with motor damage. I was sitting in the last one when it started breaking down. He was so fucking mad, screaming around and try to keep the drive alive until our destination. Sure this might be bad luck and a bad production line as well. But he never bought an Audio after that as you can imagine. He is driving Porsche Cayenne now, which might not be much smarter, but what can you do.
I don't think Europe got the V6
Opposite here, Audis are fucking dirt cheap and maintenance is cheap (Cheaper than BMW and Mercedes) and every company fag has boats of them as fleet vehicles

standard A4 automatics are only 34k pounds brand new, so I guess it all depends where you are living

Any special reason you're looking at the RAV4 in particular? 10k€ seems like a lot for a 10 year old car that's nearing 200k

My biggest gripe with the RAV4 and things like the Hyundai Tucson, Skoda Codiaq is the engine, 150-200hp just seems really weak for something that big.
wtf are you on about? 150 is fine for daily driving, its torque that matters anyway, the 2.2 diesel makes 340nm of torque

Anyone else here who just hoards tools? I started hoarding the top tier brands ever since I started wrenching on cars and the Chinesium tools my dad bought when he was a homeless poorfag working on his shitbox kept breaking.
What do you guys do with the crappy tools that you inevitably have to take home because the boomer you were lowballing insists you take it all since they're moving to the retirement home?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Now that I think of it, the chinkshit sockets are actually worth it for hammering in bearings, they're soft pieces of shit so less risk of marring up my workpiece, and usually they're thicker to compensate for the shit steel.
just use the chinkshit ones until they all break then stop buying shit tools. otherwise, just haul them to a scrap recycling place and get cash.
Why use the shit tools when you have better ones?

That’s the problem, I have a bunch of channellocks (name brand and knockoff), but there’s no reason to grab them instead of the Knipex on my work bench so they sit in the drawer and never get touched.
I don't understand people and shops that use expensive tools when you can get ones from people like OP for free or next to nothing and just replace them endlessly from your stockpile.
seems like a waste of money, desu.
Because super cheap tools will fuck up shit and waste time and then break and cost you more money in the long term, especially if you’re on the clock.

You don’t have to go full Snap On everything, there is a good Taiwan middle ground, but the cheap generic Chinese stuff just sucks to work with.

It's actually a 1928 to 1931, not a Deuce (1932), and a Tudor, not a Coupe. 1928 was the first year for that new body, and the vertical seams on the rear (alongside the full width vinyl roof, the seam running across from the C-pillar being the only remainder here) disappeared in 1932.

Model A, not Model B, for the aforementioned reason. Easily mistaken.

I don't think you understand some of the basics.
There is a always minimum weight rule, usually to control the cost of preparing a racecar.
When regulations allow for both RWD and FWD cars, (and they are otherwise equally prepared) RWD cars are always forced to be 20-25kg heavier than FWD cars to make up for various advantages they have. This is not due to the extra weight of the RWD drivetrain, but to balance the different drivetrains.
This has been the case for Class II, Supertouring (incuding the JTCC variant), Super Production, Super2000, BTC-T, NGTC regulations. Basically any touring car series since around 1990.

Advantages of an RWD racecar
>better traction at a standing start and corner exit due to dynamic weight distribution (car accelerates, rear goes down, weight moves back)
>Current BTCC cars with RWD also have to use a extra tall 1st gear and limited boost in first to reduce this start advantage
>more even tire wear due to power going through the rear wheels (ofc)
>better weight balance because the engine sits further back and there is more weight in the rear
>depending on regulations you can move the engine even further behind the front axle.

Advantages of FWD
>better traction at a standing start and corner exit in the wet (not enough grip for dynamic weight distribution)

forgot to add:
I wanted to explain that rear wheel drive is not superior in every regard. But if you look at the winners of the last decades there seem to be more victorious RWD cars, especially when you consider they are usually vastly outnumbered by FWD cars. BMW vs anyone else basically.

This one is a favourite of mine

>This german racing series is a whole weekend with one make championships, DTC production touring cars, Formula 3 etc
>DTC was my favourite due to the variety
>a bunch of FWD hatches with 4cyl engines basically, and a few BMWs mixed in
>those BMWs were running 2.0 6cyl engines, so unlike the other cars they were allowed to rev to 9k (to make up for the extra friction inside the engine)
>6cyl are also noisier because the go through 50% more ignition cycles each revolution

My N54 runs HOT. I'm tracking it this season and I'm ordering a 5" FMIC to help mitigate the high as fuck IAT. I really wanna add 2 hood vents to each side of the hood. Nothing gaudy because I genuinely want to cool down. I don't give a fuck for looks because it's my track car. Any reccommendations to anyone who's done something similar? New CF hood with vents are around $600 and I could use that money for a cage and harness so I'm gonna hold off. Mainly looking to bandaid the problem for my first track events since I'm already gutting it. Pic related but I'm only going to do either 1 at the top or 2 on the sides. It's garaged so I don't have to worry about rain and like I said IAT is already hot af and so the engine bay is relatively set for driving in the rain. Regardless like I said it's not a daily.

also a FMIC will really only help reduce your charge temps and reduce knock however reduced charge temps won't really help your oil temp.
>tfw dad wants to give me his 135i but I don't want to fucking deal with hpfp issues + turbo issues

>My N54 runs HOT. I'm tracking
Something is seriously wrong with your cooling system. I can rape my 6cyl turbodiesel in mud bog with radiator caked in mud and it'll not run hot.
Driving on road at high speeds with insane airflow there's no way engine will run hot unless something is fucked up. Since it's bmw it's probably hairline head crack.
Have you considered methanol or e85?
>Something is seriously wrong with your cooling system. I can rape my 6cyl turbodiesel in mud bog with radiator caked in mud and it'll not run hot.
diesels run colder than gasoline cars do. Also tracking a car is not "driving on road at high speeds. He's on the throttle for the entire track save for when he's braking.

Are the savings from buying used over new that significant?

Yea dude, that corolla started a 17k brand new.

Also don't buy from a rental car company that car had the ever loving piss beaten out of it. That car not from a rental place should go for about 13k. 11.3k makes me think it has an underlying issue at only 27k miles, it wasn't serviced properly or something else. See if its been in an accident.

Got from point A to point B and back without a scratch. People can be real assclowns, OP.
Point a gun at her and tell her to stfu. It will work, trust me
>my mom was like that, so the thing to do is to distract her, get her talking about something that really takes her back to it. Use low quality bait to get her hyper focused on it. Drive how you want.

Sounds pretty smart, I'll try that one if she asks me to drive her again.

Did you tell them anything about it or just endured the storm for the whole trip?

Make them drive. It works every time.
I told them off but it doesn’t really stop them, unfortunately.
