I’m 24 and want to buy my first car.
I live in the balkans, but my family is doing well, and I earn more than twice the average wage in the city I’m currently living in.
I work in IT, and currently have €14k saved up, and buy the end of this year I’ll have more than €20k.
Our family has a few shitboxes that we use to commute everyday.
This car that I want to buy for myself won’t really be a daily commuter, more like a weekend/occasional commuter.
From what I understood, the budget for a car should be my wage times 6 (half a year of waging), which is around €9k (~$10600).
Which car would you recommend me to buy?
I’d like an executive sedan, or an SUV, but I’m open to suggestions.
I’d prefer a european car, as parts should be easily and readily available, but I wont say no to a car I like…

Consider a Volvo with T5 or 2.5T drivetrain, it's really a 2.4 liter engine and makes good torque quickly. Won't get more comfortable seats than that, either.
that pic you posted… one can dream to own such a beauty
I’m considering these.
Was also thinking about a Superb III in a year when prices will drop a bit and I’ll have a little more cash to spend.
It’s 10k total, for now
For SUVs I was thinking at mk2 sportage fl or an xtrail. Wish I could afford a nicer Q5

Any six-cylinder E90 BMW, maybe. Definitely in your price range, very nice to drive and good interior depending on which one you get, and maintenance isn't too expensive or complicated in Europe.
They have 3 liter engines, though. But, shit, if I can afford it without a job, you can afford it for sure.
I'm in a very similar situation except I would use it to drive at least 30 minutes everyday. R8 my shortlist:

Opel Insignia 2008-13
Saab 9-3 2002-14
Lancia Delta 2008-14
Alfa Romeo 156 Crosswagon Q4

is this some new hipster trend? how the fuck do they keep that clean?
They park in a garage
that’s pakiwear look for the stolen children in the back
They use a washing machine. Something you should try doing
>how the fuck do they keep that clean?
As long as there isn't a rain, it will be fine with a gentle cycle wash once per month to get rid of atmospheric grime buildup. And an occasional vacuuming to pull out dust that obscures the look. If it were on my SUV, I'd swap it out for the Honda logo cover when the weather is rainy or the roads are muddy, and swap it back once the weather is sunny again.
>look for the stolen children in the back
pakis are white now?

Yes, my car is my property, I can part it, I can destroy it, and I can sell it for scrap if I want to. You'd feel the same way if you actually owned a car. Now get out. >>>/n/

Absolutely stay the fuck off strangers' fields, but it doesn't do any significant damage unless you hit the same spot so much you dig a big dip into the field with your tires. The little ruts disappear in one pass of the disk.
its amazing how butthurt some people are.
still not your trucks :^)

I'm seconding that and wanna extend that to wider wheels. You are dealing with more unsprung weight and roll resistance, shittier rain handling and so on for that one occasion where you find yourself in a endurance race. I think people are way underplaying the cons for wide tires and wheels under the wrong assumption, that adding width equals adding grip, which is blatantly wrong.
>that adding width equals adding grip
the nuance here is sometimes it is done for big brake kits, or to enable you to go wider and softer leading to more grip without sacrificing tire life. But most go to a larger wheel then put the same line of tire they'd have on the stock rims.
As for unsprung weight, I understand the math behind it, have tried some suspension tuning myself, have tried from shops that 'supposedly' know how to do it, but it always felt either worse or no change at all even without bringing in the cost. Only exception to this for me has been swaybars where I can easily feel the difference.
tldr looks mostly, doesn't do much of anything unless track vehicle, and even then you'd sooner be stripping the interior than adding wheels in my opinion.

It looks like something Razer, or Gillette would design, same goes for the current Civic and every other Lexus. Interior is nice though.

Unironically, I want to start reading more about cars: different models by year, why some are historical while others aren't, etc. Any suggestions? Coming as an F1 fan if it matters
just find a car you like and research the piss out of it. I know someone who did that with z31 300zx, and I did it with XV10 Camrys, and a few other vehicles

Post your favourite Citroëns if so. mine's the Citroën C4 from 2004.

? of all the interesting cars citroen has made you chose a fucking c4. I understand you probably have/had one, but that is as boring as it gets.
I know, but I can't opinate on cars I've never driven
if I had to choose one of the cars I did never drive, I'll probably choose a DS or ID. they look so futuristic!!
their current lineup is utter shit
I actually just recently bought a 2005 C4 Coupe.
French cars have a terrible reputation in my country, so the second hand market is 50/50 "should just be written off" and "enthusiast owned vehicle which is cheaper than all contemporary vehicles due to the reputation it doesn't really deserve"

It's not very exciting, but I like it.

This is good cause for breaking the principal defense act between America and Australia.
If you weren't an idiot then you'd know a "truck" is any vehicle designed to transport cargo or passengers. Legally speaking, everything except motorcycles and roadsters are trucks.
That's the same word though just spelled differently because it's a different language. We don't call them a different word.

I have a M3LR, and I love driving it, but all the stories about houses burning down because of overnight charging catching EVs on fire makes me scared as hell.
Chances are he's driven more cars than you.
I thought that was just the Bolt and Kona EV with LG batteries?
