The hatchback, I didn’t make it clear but were talking the Type R here. I didn’t like the Sedan rear end either but that was only because of how similar it looks to a VW, but the actual look itself I don’t mind.

the channel that OP linked to records regularly, not 24/7 but still enough footage for regular uploads. there really is no shortage of stupidity. although some people are more careful to keep the bow wave from going into the grille
I've noticed those mercedes vans and most bmws do not make it through. Although most of those are hitting it with way too much speed. I would be very curious about what damage the bev that are hitting these are getting. No way with all those electronics something isn't getting fucked.
Dead giveaway when you see the car jerk to a sudden stop on the way out of the water, perfect demonstration of hydrolock. Or when they think they've made it out only to be greeted with the clatter of bent conrods and the puff of white steam out the exhaust pipes on the other side of the ford.

Mechanics in that area must be millionaires, all those engine swaps.
One thing that would be interesting to see is the aftermath, most of these cars pop the hood like it's going to do something. Would be neat to see the newly created viewing ports on the cranks of these cars.
It's almost 6 o'clock and they were going to the local Mercedes dealer.

Couple months ago I get my car to the dealership for oil change. They said I had a timing cover oil leak and they want to charge $3000+ to fix it. I declined the service but I've been worried about this shit everyday since.

I checked my driveway every day and I don't see any oil on the ground so I don't know what the fuck is going on here.

What should I do /o/? Are they trying to rip me off?
Nigger how hard is it to look up what timing cover means and then take a visual inspection in the engine bay?
It takes less time to learn what a timing cover is and how to identify oil leaks than to post on this shitty forum
You pissed me off so muchI won'teven tell you how to identify the timing cover
I know nothing about cars. I just want to ask for some advice on what to do here
look under the hood and see if anything's leaking
If it's leaking, buy a new bit and put it where the old one was.

I've seen the memes, read the stories, heard people tell me their stories, and so on and I've noticed one common factor to all of them; their cars. From my limited understanding, depressed car enthusiasts latch on to their cars as their only source of joy. I wouldn't call that healthy but then again, therapy isn't cheap nor is everyone in your life a 24/7 emotional holiness. There is another common factor to all of it: loneliness. Most depressed car guys seem to suffer from loneliness.
The origin of the Lonely Drivers meme is from Initial D's Sileighty arc. Originally played for laughs, the joke becomes something profound by the end of the arc as we witness Iketani cope with the loss of what could have been his first love. Of course he moves on from it rather quickly as that love never materialized in the first place.
Most of us aren't so lucky. Some of us struggle to move on from loneliness or a broken heart. We won't get over it as quickly as Iketani did. We may not have the emotional support so we latch on to our cars. We perform a variety of activities with our cars to help us forget, distract us, make us feel something.
For me personally, that isn't cutting it anymore. Maybe I never loved my car. I don't want to think that. But driving my car, speeding on my local touges, sitting and admiring her, it just doesn't do it anymore. I can't feel anything anymore with her and that has me concerned. L I can't lose that coping mechanism, not now.
That's the point of this thread really. How do you cope with your car? What do you do with your car to forget everything? Advice is always appreciated. Venting is allowed too. Pls no zoomers with lonely drivers stickers pretending to be sad.

i saw that video. that guy is retarded and doesn't actually like racing. Unless you enjoy the countless lonely laps it takes in order to find true battle you end up like that loser.
No, what you said is true. Taking care of your car does not relieve you of any ails. It doesn't even distract you really. Forget loneliness... all the other problems have been amplified. I've never used my cars as coping mechanisms before. Trying to use them as such only hurts them and makes everything worse. Sorry anon, you got an unlucky (You). You got problem dumping anon at 4AM.
All this time I've taught that cars were the ultimate escape. The ultimate cope. The one cope which makes you forget all your problems. That's not reality. It's a fantasy. My problem is incredibly cringeworthy. It's understandable that people will make fun of it from an outside perspective. But this isn't fun at all. It's relieving discussing solutions but the actual problem isn't fun at all.
I want to be like everyone here. I want my cars to distract me but they can't. The poor things can't. I want to know what's it like to just drive and forget everything. Tell me to touch grass all you want, I've been doing that. I've been making my own efforts. But it's so pathetic. The last bit of dignity I have left I'm throwing it away here
You seriously need medical help
Seeing two therapists and a counselor. My money could be going towards other things but here we are

Someone was asking the other day about crazy car financing stories and I remember this one guy I knew bought from one of those buy here pay here lots and it had a keypad in it and every two weeks he had to come in and make a cash payment and they would give him an unlock code, which he would punch in and have his car work for another two weeks

This was in like 2005, so I imagine these places have gotten more advanced and venal

Anyone else here make some bad financial decisions and want to confess?

I'll start. I lived at home far longer than I should have, but if I didn't I would have been taking the bus instead of owning and driving my first couple of cars. Does that count?

i somewhat often splurge on oem parts that are ridiculously expensive even though i dont really need them. e.g. coolant reservoir or windshield wiper bottles

Europoor here.

It’s essentially a score by which the bank determines how trustworthy you are before giving you out a loan based off your history. If you’ have a shitty score then you’re going to get shitty terms or they won’t give it to you at all.
Oh god man me too, one of my weaknessess when shopping online for car parts is the acronym NOS
For someone who daily drives a 41 year old car, NOS OEM parts are like crack cocaine, I'll pay anything to get at them.
i've been lucky so far. lots of the more critical parts that would be NOS, aisin makes them as aftermarket products so it's just as good as original toyota. more often than not it just has the toyota logo ground off. bought a set of 10 year old spark plug wires that came with the clips and everything off some dude in hawaii who didn't try to rip me off either. bless him

I feel styling wise, this is the last full size luxury sedan with an old money aesthetic. It doesn't have the gaudy wheels of an S Class, the overly sporty styling of a 7 Series, or the intricacies of a Lexus. The G90's styling harkens to elegance with presence. Its presence stems from its elegance rather than its gaudiness. Shame it's Hyundai though,

Yeah, but if you're on an adventure bike you're also on the road. The TW is not as capable on road, even as slow as the Himy is. The TW also lacks the comfort of the Himy.
>weight difference
My himy might be 440lbs or so, but it's quite capable for any average offroader. The TW is fantastic in bogs and fields otherwise. The difference in ground clearance is about an inch, and a TW200 would not have bottomed out and got stuck here, but I've done that again and have learned from that experience and no longer get stuck.
looking into them now. thanks. really like the tw400. planning a cross country back road/off road trip.
i’ve had bikes. not problem working on them. planning a cross country trip, mostly off road.
