Hello /o/, I've not lurked here much so apologies if I break any house rules or etiquette.
Blog/ I've always liked cars, I managed to buy a shit high mileage pontiqc sunfire GT like an eon ago, it had a true duel exhaust and kmh primary speedometer, I killed that eounded bitch through use and life demanded and I acquiesced and drove trucks for years and years. Finally i was able to get in to my favorite car of basically all time, only rivaled perhaps by the gran turismo era skyline. This is my 2019 WRX, I'm startled by how much I have been enjoying driving it. It's a base model, I could have swung the STI or limited but I'm a jew.
So I guess all that's left is for you guys to tell me what a faggot I am and how shitty my car is.
I feel like the clutch just doesn't pop into gear very fast, and drives less like a sports car and more like just a regular car...
You mean the shifter? The clutch doesn't "pop into gear"
I think it's down to a poor cable transmission, AWD and the stock tune. I know what you mean though, last time I seriously took my car out for a drive on a canyon road before I sold it I felt like I was having to fight the transmission in order to shift fast like you can in any other car. It just feels very slow and sloppy, the complete opposite of what you want in a car like this.
Where the clutch pedal catches, I'll get the shifter into the spot just fine, but releasing the pedal it seems just really off when the pedal catches and engages the gear. Like I have to ride it in a sweet spot. It's been like that since day 1.
>>20272003 >>20271625 >>20271999 forgot to add, the drivability issues were why I sold the car. It was a complete chore to drive smoothly fast and around town. My 92 Metro with a lever actuated transmission shifted smoother and nicer than my WRX.
How do I make my front lights more "blue"?
I understand that xenon headlights have special equipment, but how do I do it on a normal halogen headlamp?
Only for low-beams as well, high-beams are fine as is.
>making front lights more blue instead of towards a yellow hue in winter above all >25 bucks for one of the few parts that makes you visible to others is expensive consider pic related
Hope you get ticketed for the shitty Chinese headlights your gonna buy.
Last thing we need is more blue light assholes blinding people.

I was hoping for a cheap legal alternative. I guess I'll just pass.
300 dollars on a gun to shoot yourself in the head, nigger. Blue headlights suck for visibility because it fucks with your eyes more than yellow. Keep that shit stock, asshole
I already can't see shit with low-beams, when driving with a half-shitty weather I have to guess where the road is when someone's coming the other way.
Now that the dust has settled, which is a better car for a 23 year old guy with 15k burning a hole in his pocket?
Can any other auto even compare to these two giants?
Ah yes, the 220hp GTi is much better
Obviously it'll have better in gear acceleration due to being turbocharged and having much more torque but it's not like a stock GTi would blow the 86 away.
the meme86 can't gap a polo GTI despite having a coupe shape, being rwd, having 600cc of displacement more and more hp (25). It's a fucking disappointment lmao
Used to own a '16 GTI. Pretty quick and handles real well with great tires. Outhandled and gapped a BRZ (could just have been shitty driver). Throw a tune into the mix with full 'stage 1' shit (intake, exhaust, downpipe) and you're looking at 280hp and over 300ft/lb of torque. Pretty solid cars and extremely comfy. The 'autobahn' package includes a ton of comfort shit as well.
>>20271933 >handles real well with great tires. Outhandled and gapped a BRZ
the factory tyres on the 86/BRZ are fucking shit to be fair, which is probably the biggest factor apart from the driver

WHEELS AND COILOVERS ON YOUR SHITBOX ISN'T A BUILD
Anyone have a in-depth project they are working on right now? Swaps/restoration/ETC
Pic related, been working toward my idea of a perfect Z32 for the last 2 years with a fully built SR20DET
What engine is that?
some kind of weird dodge stratus 2.4
In depth? Not really. It's more of a mechanical restoration. Just did the shifter linkage bushings and gate selector bushings on a '10 evo. Next up is the base bushings short throw, tightening the handbrake cable, all brake lines, rotors, and pads.
I am not totally sure on this but isnt the 4agze made stronger, so just unsupercharge it and slap a turbo on it
The GZE has oil squirters and forged pistons, but a lower compression ratio.
I’ve seen a lot of talk on Z31’s
Wot dos p/o/l think about them?
Are you comparing V6 and 4 cylinder Camaros or something?
1985 Nissan 300ZX 0-60 mph 8.0 | Quarter mile 16.1
1985 Nissan 300ZX Turbo 0-60 mph 7.3 | Quarter mile 15.5
1985 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z28 Compare Car 0-60 mph 6.9 | Quarter mile 15.0
1983 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 H.O. Compare Car 0-60 mph 6.6 | Quarter mile 14.8

You’re absolutely right, I just wanted to hear what y’all thought about it
The mk3 Supra and z32 are bothering better cars
Have you owned them? How would you know? O said that the station handled like shit but I drove one and it steered fine more feel than some modern cars had
Post the most outlandish shit and wildest claims you can find for cars, bonus points for stories of people who believe them

<<Apparently this scam is still going
its pretty crazy hey and not well known at all

indians are not human
3199 euros, claimed 280bhp - so there's probably no chance this is a 1JZ, cuz this is the 3L engine.
What do you think /o/?
Then why did you waste our time?
it's a very nice photo until you start imagining that the car is blushing with its blinkers

>>20271622 >Mk2 uglier than Mk1
Fuck off, you are completely and utterly wrong.
Don't you mean because? Mk3s a CUUUTE!!
Are you ready, /o/?
I did what /o/ told me not to do and bought an AWD car with winter tires because 90% of you fags either never leave the house or don't live anywhere it snows more than an inch at a time.

How am I meant to manage this? Do I just have to get used to getting fucked in the bass everytime I try to drive anyhere in a city? I mean, surely public transportation is better than driving in cities? How is it even possible to own a car in a city like holy fuck
This or Google Maps, if you don't visit the city often it's worth it to not worry about navigating all the one-ways and other BS.
>>20269595 >On the other hand, i went to Berlin, and the traffic there was beautiful. Loads of cars, lots of traffic, but it all went very fast and smooth, no jams, no accidents, it was almost perfect. Beautiful city too.
berlin doesn't nearly have the population of nyc or any other major american city but german driving schools are also just very good and german traffic signs/regulations are simple and logical
Yeah there wasn't as much traffic as NY, but considering how much traffic there was, is flowed very, very well, i live in a small country with nowhere close to as much traffic as berlin and shit here goes 5 times slower still
I live in a 1+ million city in a shithole Euro country with subhuman drivers and it's hell. I'm poor but if I someday have money and live in the same city I'm not even sure I would buy an expensive car. The pure stress of some faggot hitting me would be too much.
Because most of them are subhumans imported from Bangladesh by the boatload and the only job they can get is driving for Uber. Over there you just drive wherever the fuck you want. These mother fuckers put their phones on the window right in front of their face so they're literally blocking their line of sight.
