I wonder if that was the same rationale that ISIS had when they smashed up all those ancient statues in the Middle East.

I’m going to have brutal sodomy with your first crush in school, because she’s a prostitute now and I paid for her after all.

LX front wiggly bits for reference
Suspension parts =\= Same Platform lots of cars do this and isn’t even a bad thing.
and the JA isn’t even related to the LX platform at all, it was mainly a FWD compact platform.
Suspension parts =\= Same Platform lots of cars do this and isn’t even a bad thing. Yes it borrowed parts of the Mercedes parts bin but that doesn’t make It a Mercedes platform nor does it make it “two cars welded together in the middle”
and the JA isn’t even related to the LX platform at all, it was mainly a FWD compact platform.
Correction, JA is a mid-size platform.
That was a surprisingly good read.
Imagine if it wasn’t for 4Matic bin parts we’d have a FWD Chally and it would have been a disgrace.
Is manual gear really that uncommon in US? Everyone I know uses manual gear, I've never been in an automatic car in my entire life
>T. Eastern European
Yes, exactly, you fucking dumbass. Automatics are designed for the majority of driving people actually DO. If your faggot ass wants to wear out your left leg riding the clutch in traffic commuting every day, feel fucking free. Meanwhile, in the real world, that gets old very quickly, and since most people can only afford one car (let alone one new car), they buy the car that's the least effort to drive daily.
If you hate automatics so much and need a brand-new manual, just buy a motorcycle. At least then you can ride the clutch without worrying about burning it up.
I don't 'hate' automatics. They're most suitable for many applications. But where I live there's hardly any traffic and the roads are mountainous and winding. So, I have five manual cars and one automatic. Cheers.
if autofagic drivers hate cars so much why the fuck do they keep making threads?
i live in central florida and stick shifts are literally only common for people that drive sports cars (mostly miatas, challengers, etc.), and once in a blue moon a truck with a floor shift
like you have to go out of your way to buy a non-auto at every dealership i've ever been to if it's even available - and for the most part it's not less expensive in the slightest. even for VW,BMW and brands that you'd think would be the other way around are rare to find manuals unless it's 30 years old or someone's project
legit at my old high school the couple teachers who drove stick would leave their car open because of how no one can fucking drive stick, there was this one kid awhile ago that tried stealing someone's jeep and ended up trying to floor it in first gear
Ive met one other person in my generation (millennial) that drove a stick for reasons other than being a car enthusiast.
She had a 1994 honda accord with a manual transmission and it was a total POS, they had replaced the engine once already. I was like then why keep sinking money into it? Then I found out why, she was a drunk and would constantly damage the car.
Other than that ive never met someone that unironically drove stick. Theres just no reason given most people want a point A to B to car, and automatics, DSG and EVs all offer a much easier way to drive.

>800 credit score
>approved for pretty much whatever amount I want to spend up to 140k
I want to spend 40k or less. What should I buy? Looking for:
>Under 50k miles
>fun to drive as a daily
Pretty much open to anything with these parameters
I found this
you can probably find it for even cheaper on a better site
If you’re spending $40k to be in a used car it should be a V8 at minimum.
Then buy. Best decision you can make with these criteria.

G37 Coupe IPL manual
I see a lot of posts on here equating the electricity being used to charge an EV as being the same as running an air conditioner or some other high-draw appliance, but this is not accurate. When an EV is charging, it's pulling the equivalent of an *entire house going at full tilt*, and it does so continuously. This is totally unlike the power draw from an air conditioner, which only turns on intermittently, and actually draws much lower current than people realize 99% of the time. The same thing goes for an oven, stove, electric kettle, or anything else that uses a heating element - it's not running the element at full tilt for hours, it's running it for a few minutes to a half hour and then switching off. The EV charger pulls its max current the second you start charging and doesn't stop until you unplug it or the battery is full. Most houses in the real world pull about 40-50 amps during the busiest part of the day (everyone gets home and you're doing all the cooking, washing, etc), and less than 20 amps the rest of the day. EV chargers generally draw 30-50 amps depending on the type, continuously. So, if you charge your car overnight for 8 hours, you're using about the same amount of electricity that your house uses in 24 hours. I don't really care about EV's one way or the other, I'm just tired of the misconception that their current draw is minimal. It isn't. It's actually a huge amount of power.

idk we had radioactive pile of coal ash at company. dont really know how radioactive it was but everyone was told to not get close to that shit.
Could be worse, could be surprise tsunamied with all fallback cooling systems mysteriously going offline and the key control switch responding to commands from a foreign government until you can get a crew in to bypass
>>25952848 >everything is muh big oil
gaslighting commie faggot
Lmao you are beyond schizo if you think shutdowns of nuclear plants is due to some activists and parties and not other, much bigger interests.

>Bugatti Veyron tyres
$42,000 a set, can ONLY use Michelin pilot sport PAX tyres which were made specifically for the car and have to be glued to the wheel. You must bring your car in to have the tyres reglued every 18 months regardless of mileage.
Comes with Michelin pilot sport cup 2’s, any local tyre shop can order these in and fit them for about 2 grand.
Is this representative of impressive leaps in tyre technology or were Bugatti and Michelin running a nice scam to inflate prices?
Like I wouldn't adapt that to milsurp 37s first set it needed
>>25959074 >your bugatti if you are poorfag
>>25959064 >were Bugatti and Michelin running a nice scam to inflate prices?
Kek probably. Would be interesting to know what the real differences were.
What's even more insane is my tire prices DOUBLED in just 4 months.
Because I drive a older euro car in the states, I have to buy my tires online. On Amazon, they were $25 a piece not too long ago. Who is responsible for this shit?
Leaps in tech are really a thing. Jay Leno likes to talk about how a set of carbon fiber rims was more expensive than some current American cars equiped with them.

how come porsche doesn't innovate and create other styles of cars. its like they are peak german autists that refuse to deviate more than 5mm from any arbitrary point on the original body design. why not make a sick hatchback or 4x4
They should switch back to their old logo
>>25958856 >maskies masking outdoors
because they were not 1,5 meters apart from each other
Are you sure? They appear to be listed on the Porsche website, and are sold in dealerships bearing the Porsche badge.
You don't get it, Porsche doesn't get to decide what is and is not a Porsche. That privilege is reserved for people who drive a Ford Fusion.
In your opinion, what is the best vehicle for a doomsday situation? Something old without computers? EV? Mega 4x4 off-road monstrosity? I think an EV is the most flexible solution, if you have the option to charge with solar.
