Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Lexus interiors tbf are already nice, so you are kinda having high expectations already. but really a modern car that would fit these categories (to me anyway) would be a v6 camry xse, mainly the newest ones. sporty for a camry since 300hp in a camry ain't a joke, has tech that makes it feel up to date, and has pretty soft seating too. and you have the reliability as a bonus, since that is the reputation toyotas have.

dont really see how this is "curvy" 

 

and the ralliart sportback isint much curvier either 

image.png.436621c6cfef803c9fcd5d919d656401.png

the rear is curvy on the X gen... which kinda makes it look like some bodyshop did a good job about putting an evo nose on some other car.  at least the previous gen design language matched front to rear.

actually ... for a daily driver ... Evo x with the SST box is better than a Evo 9 

its a matter of preference... not really objectively better or worse... although any gearbox service other than changing the fluid goes far beyond what your average mechanically inclined car enthusiast is capable of.

Thats the thing though old Chysler Sebring had a nice interior that was comfortable and  allot of older cars had nice soft leather and cloth seats now they are all hard and made out of ruff textures.  I Have been in several Audis, BMW, Mercedes and im not sure if it was becouse I was in a base model or what but the interiors did not impress me what so ever. 

Honestly as long as it's not hard as a rock I'm OK. I don't have a problem with the BMW interiors (been in a 2013 328i, comfy and cool to be in.)

Caught up with some old co-workers from Toyota. They are having lots of off the line issues. 

 

Plus the FRS/86 recall has them worried, mostly because Toyota murders them for time on anything warranty. But thats unrelated. 

 

Funny enough, we had somebody offload a rav4 on us that has a terrible torque convertor shudder. The funny part of that is the sales manager didn't notice it when he drove it before taking it in on trade in. Theres a bulletin on the issue.

Well as a bit of an update to my endeavors of getting a car and a full license.

I've still been on my permit for the last 3 years, I haven't been able to really hit the road yet with my mom's trailblazer. I'm still technically not covered by the policy on it.

 

and I'm seriously thinking about getting a 2016-2018 Ford Focus Titanium, could care less if it were the sedan or hatchback. Frankly while I don't like the taillight design of the hatchback, I'd probably prefer it because it's the closest thing I'm going to get to a modern and cheaper wagon.

 

I'm specific about the Titanium trim because from what I've seen it's almost guaranteed to have the Sony sound system, which a premium audio system from the factory was ideal for me as I don't really wanna have to deal with that myself even if it means I could get even better audio

 

I really was adamant about the idea of getting a new 2019 Chevy Cruze LT with the Bose audio system, however seeing as GM is quite literally uninterested in the product and consumers as a whole are ditching sedans, I guess my next best option would be a slightly used Ford with the Sony system because finding a Chevy with the Bose system is a lot harder.

 

It's a shame too, because both the Cruze and Focus were made in America.

Certain Focus models will not be dropped from production. IIRC, they are keeping the ST and electric models, possibility of adding a hybrid.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Well as a bit of an update to my endeavors of getting a car and a full license.

I've still been on my permit for the last 3 years, I haven't been able to really hit the road yet with my mom's trailblazer. I'm still technically not covered by the policy on it.

 

and I'm seriously thinking about getting a 2016-2018 Ford Focus Titanium, could care less if it were the sedan or hatchback. Frankly while I don't like the taillight design of the hatchback, I'd probably prefer it because it's the closest thing I'm going to get to a modern and cheaper wagon.

 

I'm specific about the Titanium trim because from what I've seen it's almost guaranteed to have the Sony sound system, which a premium audio system from the factory was ideal for me as I don't really wanna have to deal with that myself even if it means I could get even better audio

 

I really was adamant about the idea of getting a new 2019 Chevy Cruze LT with the Bose audio system, however seeing as GM is quite literally uninterested in the product and consumers as a whole are ditching sedans, I guess my next best option would be a slightly used Ford with the Sony system because finding a Chevy with the Bose system is a lot harder.

 

It's a shame too, because both the Cruze and Focus were made in America.

 

Try looking at the Ford Focus ST  or the Fiesta ST  both are good sporty fun cars that are fairly well equipped

But if your looking for a car with a good sound system. The mini cooper comes with a Harmon Kardon  system that also pretty decent. Other cars with decent sound systems and features for the price  Lincoln MKZ, Infinity Q50, Hyundai Genesis/ Genesis G80

don't forget mini interiors are kinda cheaply made unfortunately. ppl tend to start having problems with them getting kinda ragged out and/or rattly around 100k miles or so

 

which is fine if you buy it new and dont keep it that long. but just something to keep in mind when buying a used one for sure
