Doesn't matter, the beige Mercedes you see around are old taxis imported from germany. It's one of the ways you can tell you live in a shithole
It's plaque build up, you need to brush your car 2wice daily or else it'll begin yellowing or worse developing rust.

What’s up with the new Tahoe/Suburban/Yukon/Escalade rear independent suspension?? I saw one today and the suspension bits are a few inches off the ground. Looks like junk compared.
10 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Towing, kinda obvious you would want the handling and capability of a solid rear axle when you buy a TRUCK based SUV??

Not to mention better serviceability, better flexibility when you leave the pavement, able to handle much greater loads both static and dynamic, big aftermarket, better tire wear, less parts to fail and therefore cheaper to own long term, easier to service, and capable of being lifted and off-roaded when needs require such.
Four wheel independent performs better offroad as well, militaries have been doing it for decades
4 wheel independent performs better at high speeds off-road, not in cases where load is required, and not in cases where uneven terrain wouldn’t allow a wheel to leave the ground - ie the majority of off-roading for Americans.

Also if we’re talking off-roading, independent suspension (particularly the rear suspension on attached Tahoe) isn’t upgradable like solid axles so many independent systems cannot go bigger than 33s which is quite the hindrance when everyone else is running 37s.
The new Tahoe has a higher tow rating than the old one
Holy shit you’re dumb

Just fell after practicing going knee down on my bike. Messed up my new riding shoes I got yesterday and ripped my pants. :^(
It's my fault for not investing in knee pads though. Good news is I'm all good and I now know why my body wasn't allowing me to turn in just a little harder.

How else am I gonna learn if I don't practice? I already admitted my stupidity and knew the risks beforehand. I'm gonna buy some knee pads and new gloves tomorrow though.

Well there are plenty of ways you can practice knee down first, before going straight for the road and endangering yourself. Pic unrelated

It happened in a large and empty parking lot.

Zoomer cringe.
I don't see anything wrong with that?
I am doing that to my daily because I don't ever plan on getting a new one since this one fits all my needs
Might as well make it as good as it can get
Just keep it to a basic remap mate and make sure your brake and suspension components are in shape. Don't bother upgrading the intercooler or messing with suspension and mounts, stuff like that can drastically alter the car. Keep it to a simple, fairly conservative remap and you'll get good gains.
I used to be all about the crazy stuff when I first became a driver but now I just wanna be able to overtake as fast as I can haha
Nothing too fancy just like you said
go for it, go all in, im not joking diesels beg to be tuned just dont use the cheapest kits best if its tuned on rollers.
but keep a savings account for when that high pressure pump fails, its a costly repair and happends just as likely on stock tune.

An electric BMW/Merc/Tesla is the ultimate status symbol because not only can you afford a 50k+ it means you also own a home otherwise you wouldn't be able to charge it. When a whore is trying to decide who she will fuck that night the guy in the 4-series or the guy in the luxury electric car most of the time she will pick the guy in the 60k-70k EV. Because not only does he own a nice expensive car he also owns a home. And a nice home in a good expensive area is the biggest status symbol you can get.
>When a whore is trying to decide who she will fuck that night the guy in the 4-series or the guy in the luxury electric car most of the time she will pick the guy in the 60k-70k EV.
Whores don’t choose you faggot, you buy them. Even then a s class or lc500 will gain more attention than any gay electric go kart

You absolute basement-dwelling lolijerker.
the only electric car that ((may)) make a slut interested in you is a Tesla model S since everyone knows all Teslas are electric and pricey.
I can't disagree.

I work at a cadilliac dealership and escalades are all sold out before they even get onto the lot no matter what trim model otpions etc, XT5's are probably second followed by the XT6 CT's the least popular models for sure however I kind of like them but nothing beats the comfiness of an escalade if you have enough time and money to repair it every month lol

Lots of people were running higher boost and aftermarket turbos tho.
Second this, I bought an s2k and it's ac went out, headgasket went out, and bunch of oil leaks everywhere. Be ready to deal with some dumbass repairs. Buy a 2017 brz and save yourself the headache.

It doesn't wreck cars by itself but if you have shit already wrong with it like a bad alignment, shitty tires, a shitty exhaust, or bad fluids blasting 80+mph for hours at a time will definitely fuck your car up. Poorfags are usually too overworked and busy to get their shit checked out or fixed and end up wrecking their car because they didn't know what was wrong with it or how close it was to breaking. Doesn't help that some car owners are just hilariously oblivious. Knew a guy that was new to driving that had a horrible alignment that needed to be fixed and was told a bad alignment wears down tires faster. His tires were old so he decided to just keep driving with the bad alignment because he assumed "wear tires down faster" meant it'd wear the tires evenly and not just a specific spot of the tire and he was told they realign cars when installing new tires. Fast forward a few months, his tires explode while he's driving 80mph on the highway with bald spots the size of basket balls. Guy genuinely thought that his tires would just wear evenly from the bad alignment.
Just stop speeding, it's that simple
You're not a cop, stop trying to act like one.

It's people like you who initially cause stop-go traffic btw. There's no reason why a freeway would ever be stopped if people actually knew how to drive. It might slow down to 25-35mph during busy times, but there's no reason why it should ever completely stop apart from accidents blocking lanes or something.
Those dipshits are driving UNDER the speed limit.
"driving like a retard" pretty much requires driving at least 20 over- and that's not even a guarantee you're driving like a retard, depending on conditions. I'd sooner call driving 55 in a 60 in normal conditions "driving like a retard" than most average people speeding. Studies show people drive safely on their own- 'safely' often being a tad over the posted speed limit [in the US, because we're retards with our roads and make them wide as fuck which psychologically encourages higher speeds].
Why don't you just take the bus if you got enough free time to go the speed limit?

Is it easier or harder for hobby mechanics to work on diesels vs gasoline?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Yes. Diesels are a lot dirtier to work on than petrols.
This sort of.

Modern diesels have a ton of emissions bullshit that likes to cause issues, but gasonline engines to as well. They’re also normally turbocharged so that leads to a lot more piping and such under the hood.

A modern diesel is probably about the same as a modern turbocharged direct injected engine, but there’s a learning curve because they operate a little differently.
Much much harder, mostly due to the high pressure diesel pump. Getting air out of the lines is a nightmare and they won't run properly if something is just a little bit off. Gas Cara just need spark. So much easier. I am replacing the injection pump in my TD land cruiser right now cause I can't figure out what's wrong with mine. The pump is like $1000 and you have to pull the radiator, fan, and t-belt to install it, then spend 5 days bleeding air out of the fuel lines. I love the way diesel engines sound and the torquey feeling of driving them though.
The main thing is that you can´t half-ass diesels. On gasoline engine you can get away with small corner cutting, not on diesel.
easily harder on diesel.
there's less stuff on the engine and the engines are simpler, but everything is built tighter and more precise because of the high pressures in the fuel system and general high compression nature of diesel engines.
So you have to really know what you are doing working on diesels, but they are typically very reliable and you don't have to get your hands dirty nearly as often as gasoline car owners.

Wait you could do that? Literally just tske their clothes?
If a family would bring in two suits; they'd often ask me to just "get rid of" the second one. I have quite a few nice, designer jackets from the '70s and '80s.

It would also give me an insight into who had passed and would be having sales where I could pick up a new pair of pants.

The most extreme example was the lady who I bought the old Dodge truck from; I got her late husband's Vietnam field jacket and a pair of boots he hated because they were brown. For what it's worth, she offered them to me. Though, it was still a little bit odd driving a dead man's truck while wearing his jacket and boots.
Is it really that much of a job for freaks?
It takes a weird person. Normally not a goth; they wash out when actually dealing with the dead, but the autistic kid who hates talking to people and always seems stiff/wooden. The normal response is "I can see that" when one of us becomes an undertaker.
Interesting. I suppose that comes with most professions. Left over items that are just going to the trash anyway. I picked up a brush bar for my crown vic and a truck box for my dad that way.

Definitely would be an odd thing to be wearing a dead man's clothes and driving his truck at the same time. Not sure how I'd feel about that.
