You know who also has great credit? My boomer parents. They live paycheck to paycheck and have multiple credit cards and mountains of debt. They couldn't handle an emergency vet bill when their cat got sick.

My credit is 659, but I have no debts, $10k in the bank, and my household income (take home) is just over $12k a month. Going to buy myself a really nice piece of automobile in cash in a couple of years. (what should I buy?)

Don't play the happy merchant's games.
Get a honda accord or a camry for cash, they're nice enough but not gonna bankrupt you if it needs repairing.

Got t boned by a Mexican national in a Ram 1500 in my 2010 Tacoma. I had to crawl out the passenger door because the driver side wouldn't open. He was insured and it was an I4; so he kind of did me a favor. Timing was inconvenient though.
Tried to make it through train tracks as the gates were coming down, got rekt like a fuckin retard
insurance still paid out more than i paid for the car :^)

i just cut the windshield out, pushed the frame back out with my feet, bondo'd, repainted, and had a new windshield installed for about 200.
the soft top was a bitch and i broke some of the trim in the process, but i bent that back into the right shape as well and it works. leaks a bit now, though.

Have any of you guys purchased from a used car dealer? I’m about to check out a car from one with -decent- ratings and was curious about what to expect.

What were your experiences like?

Stay away from salvage
Where you buy it doesnt matter. Its history does. If they are too cheap to provide a full carfax fuck em. Carfax may not show everything, but look at what it does show. Regular service.

I purchased aused car from a high end used dealership. I told them i was pre approved. Showed them the financing yadda yadda. They were cool about having a pre purchase inspection done. Flew to the city. They picked me up and the airport. I signed paper work and drove home.

Good advice. I also think you shouldn't buy the car if the dealer doesn't let you take it for a thorough inspection at a mechanic of your choosing.
First car was from a used dealer, second one was from private sale. I'll never buy from a used dealer again, car turned out ok but not great, about average reliability but the thing guzzles oil, i should've listened to my instincts when i looked at oil but i was in a rush (also very bad while looking for a car).

Second car boring but super reliable, it's been over a year and a half and i have not had to do anything at all besides basic maintenance. Got the car for way cheaper than possible at a used dealer, and got to talk to the person who actually knows the car's history.

Honestly OP, unless you live in a small town or rural area with few craigslist/facebook market options, you're way better off buying private sale. It'll be way cheaper and you'll be less likely to be fucked over. Used dealers job is to get good at polishing turds, you may find a diamond in the rough but even then you'll pay alot more for it.
Some old cars can get a salvage title just from being keyed or a cosmetic dent in the bumper or something like that. It can be fine if it's one of those situations but you have to know what you are looking for.

dumb nigger logic, i expected nothing less
UK used car market is probably the cheapest in the world. The next most important thing is that BMW never sell their cars at sticker price in the UK. When that car was new it probably went with 20 percent off the sticker price.

Example: BMW M2, brand new, for £38k on the road from Stratstone Leeds. Mate of mine bought it. £44k sticker price. No negotiation, they just lopped that off.
Why are they so undesirable? Isn't that obvious? Who wants a car that lives on the bed of a truck? Who wants a car that needs repairs every 2,000 miles? Who wants a car that will empty out their 401k every time something goes wrong? Of course it's undesirable. It's BMW.
The real question is ... What does this mean for the Supra in America?

Because that's when the maintenance costs ramp up.
fuck off europoorphag. We dont need your stinkin bmw that will break down by 40k. Shit lasted that long because all of those shops hours put in those shit fucks u fuckin phag
Only maintenance required for a Toyota is the oil, fluids, and brake pads. Eurofags don't understand that their oh-so-precious BMW is viewed as unreliable trash outside the Union.
Import a Euro-spec BMW then, if your police state allows it, that way you can drive a BMW that will actually last you for a long time and you can avoid hopping into a Toyota

Has anyone gotten their car repainted?

I have a 6k car with the correct engine and general good condition but its the wrong color. I think its gonna be a keeper for me and ld like to install a decent bumper kit on it too.

Tell me all the reasons why lm retarded for wanting to drop some 3k on repainting a car thats worth only about 6k itself.

Don't fucking do it. Not worth it by any fucking stretch of logic.

You are right, though, about the price of doing it yourself. I've rattle canned a few trucks for less than $300, including prep materials. They look like shit, though. My advice is to look into auto hobby shops nearby and see if anyone is looking for practice painting jobs. Offer a couple hundred bucks on top of supplies to someone with some experience doing it.
Would you wrap it
How much l look at it? Quite a lot of course. I often daydream how it would look in red when l see it.

Wrapping? I feel thats a nice temporary solution. But definitely wont have the depth of a good paint.

A student job is not a terrible idea. Its a rather modern shape and l dont have any graphics so could be easy enough for an amateur. I would like to do it properly to metal though so if they fuck up it needs to be a complete redo from metal again.
does it make you happy?
then do it.

If this does not work, try making a block off sandwich plate for the egr valve on the intake plenum side. my egr valve was letting too much exhaust gas through it. good luck.
Only asking because I've had problems with those cheap china IACs. Sometimes the plunger doesn't extend all the way, or it doesn't seat properly or it extends once and stays closed after. You check for vacuum leaks?
Bump, heading to the parts store now
Guide on how to do that? Not to be spoon fed but most of the videos about these old trucks are turbo boomers who don’t show you how to do anything.

Will be doing so after i get the gasket
What engine?
I would just leave the battery disconnected for a minute or two. The ECU almost always stores its learned trims in short term memory, and will reset to factory trims if it loses power

I'm one of those drivers and I'd much rather drive something similar to a EMV Solo. I don't care if it uses gas or a battery pack to power the motor because my commutes are less than 50 miles. That and I don't need to haul large amounts of stuff when I'm just shopping for myself. The boot's actually bigger than what I truly need.
I hard agree when it comes to Harley brapmobiles and crotch rockets at their million rpm redline flying down the highway

Looking to get your CDL? Trucking school if you can get a loan or have money, Prime, Roehl or Knight if you can't. Avoid Swift, CR England with their 3 bunk trucks, US Express, Western Express and any other mega that pays you shit wages in lieu of training and sticks you with a driver-facing camera which most of them do. You WILL get stuck with an automatic restriction if you train with a megacarrier, which can be removed at a later time.
