So much for living off-road.

Get a used 4Runner.

I recently bought an aftermarket exhaust for a 22 Brz. Its an MBRP catback. It sounds great and it has a nice, deep tone but its absurdly bass-y. Like during cold starts and below 3k RPM it makes a really low sound that vibrates the air inside the cabin and the windows in my house.

Picrel is what the catback looks like, it has two mufflers on each end but no resonator in the middle. I think the BRZ comes with a small resonator before the catback, but the stock exhaust also has another resonator in the long piping section of the exhaust. Would adding a resonator remove the bass vibrations? Or would I have to add a muffler? I really like the sound so I don't want to fuck it up, but the vibrations are annoying.

I have a manual transmission. From what I can tell its not drone. My friend who is much more experienced with cars and exhausts (he has a Type R and a supercharged 14 Brz) said it wasn't drone.

The bass vibrations only happen during low throttle, below 3.5k rpm, and during cold starts. When cruising on the highway at 2-3k rpm in 6th gear theres no vibrations, and when you let off the throttle the vibrations stop. Its only really noticeable when accelerating.
leave it alone you little bitch. sounds hot asf.
>3 inch exhaust on an engine that makes 200hp
the larger diameter is unironically big part of the problem
a resonator would probably help, but what you really want is a side pipe / helmholtz style resonator with the correct length to target the loud low frequency that you are hearing
fabricating that for your car will take a bit of work, though
Basie was overrated.

I remember a car sticker album from the late 90s and this is what the entire "future car" section looked like

Hyundai and Kia are GOOK cars. They are shit and crap. Fuck op aka gook shill
molds are dreadfully expensive, and they don't last forever.

you're looking at thousands upon thousands of dollars for shitty button moldings, hundred thousands for bigger parts like dashes.

on the super quality side of things, the common 2x4 lego brick mold USED to cost ~200k euros for ~100 million pieces before wearing out, more intricate parts go upwards of a million per mold.

touchscreen has nothing to do with being high tech, it's just another way of reducing costs
I'm guessing between 0 and 1 other people in this thread have ever had to pay for an injection molds. It's stupidly expensive up front and then wears out anyway. It may seem like small peanuts compared to the volumes and expenses of auto makers but it's still a lot more than buying a batch of panasony samtachi touch screens and slapping them on a much simpler mold and calling it a day. Physical buttons are by far more expensive.

I don't think I'll get tired of doing this. Most you seem to enjoy it.

That makes a lot more sense. People love the Pontiac G8 GT, Chevy SS, Pontiac GTO, etc here, at least now.
Back in the day it was DPF related, if a diesel had DPF it didn't need downward exit pipes, if it didn't then it had to exit down. Since DPFs became commonplace it's largely aesthetic, with the exception of some high performance, high emissions cars.
>diesel need downward exhaust pipes
For what purpose?
>nothing else though
those have carbon fiber roofs.
to be fair you can't use real suede in a car interior, it would shrink and curl up in a day.

2 days ago I bought a used seat leon 1.0 tsi for €15k with 68k km, so far so good. I tried it and it didn't give any problems or anything so I bought the car, the thing is that today I was going to hang out with a friend and before starting the car I saw that the epc light and the pollution light were on (pic related) . Has anyone experienced this? The car is goes well, except that in the city at traffic lights and some stops the car would not start, I mean, I slowly released the clutch and hit the accelerator at the right moment and it did not want to go, it was not as if it stalled, the engine just stopped, after some time no longer happened, also the car told me to use the start-stop manually in that tiny screen

I'm living in California for two years (school) and the used market is garbage. Should I just lease instead?
7 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
If you'll only have them for 2 years I doubt any of those cars will need more than oil changed
And even if for some reason it needs more maintenance than that even if it ends up costing as much as a lease would have (it won't)
At the end of the 2 years you will then have a car you can sell
But if you lease you won't
Any money you spend is gone and can't be recouped
buy a 22-23 civic hatch and sell it for what you got it for new in two years.
>roommate had several German coupes and a STI

Get a Jap car and just give it a good inspection. 2 years is nothing and cars love the dry California weather.

i love vehicles with CVT
10 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Wife's car has a CVT (Toyota) and I love driving it, it's just so smooth if drive it gently. If you stomp on the accelerator then the engine will thrash but if you just drive it like a normal car then it's incredibly relaxing, like a rubber band, and it always gears down to ~1000rpm for cruising around at town speeds so it's pretty much silent. Closest I can equate is to an EV.
Only one I've driven is a 2020 impreza, honestly pretty good. In "sport" mode it's absolutely haram, tries to simulate gear shifts and just ends up behaving like a typical subaru auto (shit), but if you just leave it in D then it's smooth as silk and gets you going pretty quick given how little output the engine has. Only real issue is hills, it will try to target a low rpm for economy and will hunt back and forth as you try to maintain a constant speed since the power curve of an engine is not linear.

>They seem to think the gas pedal is an on/off switch and since off is the brakes they are constantly accelerating and the braking over and over
That's literally how you're supposed to drive, coasting is wasted road and lost time
I have two cars with CVTs, both act differently, but both are great.
Wife has a Toyota CHR. It's dumb and ugly but she likes it so whatever.
Drives smooth as fuck. Rpm goes up to 1500 and will stay there under acceleration, then spool down to 1000. Can't even feel it running most of the time. Quiet and smooth.
I have a Subaru Crosstrek, which will rev to 2k until the clutch locks up and drops to 1500, and will stay locked unless it's coasting. Once cruising, it sits at 1000-1100 and does the boxer rumble. "sport" mode just keeps a higher rpm, and keeps the clutch in a locked state at all times.
I know it's bait but you still made me mad

I've been living out of state for a while and am going to be moving back home but it's quite a long drive through several states and my sticker is out. I did the registration renewal but home state won't issue a new sticker until I pass smog so it looks like i'm just driving around with a long expired tags. How likely is it that I get pulled over for this and what do you think worst case is?

pull over likely? or will plate readers say its all good?
