Hello sushi, do you own a car?

I just bought Audi A4 B5 1.6 and it is mad fun.


I've had a e87 bmw 1 series for a while now, I think I'm going to take more hours and start to save up for an evo 10 or something in that area. Failing that I'll probs just keep my 1 series as my run about at get a cheap ass mx-5 to wrap around lamp posts instead.


File: 1516018547736.jpg (345.87 KB, 1000x562, 76237677888885.jpg)

I own a VW up with my sister. I only got my licence recently so I'm too spooked to go on any big roads so I'm just driving around where I live for now.
I'd like to go on long trips but I'm way too afraid of motorways or even dual carriageways.

I love driving around at like 2am though. It's completely silent and everything looks nice.

No. But I'm going to buy a scooter in spring.
Scooters are cool.


I've always wanted a nice scooter, seems like a lot less hassle than a car. Also the lower gases prices are a plus. You should post some pics.


File: 1516093259820.jpg (872.73 KB, 2326x3103, dupxzeb1wqnz.jpg)

Here ya go.
Yup, they barely burn gas. And the license costs less. And maintainance is easier and costs less.
It's like a bicycle 2.0.

I own one and as long as they are fine in a rural area, in a city with modern infrastructure they get outclassed by bicycles. And you can't drive them in winter.

Anyway, two photos of my Audi A4 B5.


File: 1516152990988.jpg (6.83 MB, 3456x4608, IMG_20171004_101149361_HDR.jpg)

Yus scooters are sweet. I have a Honda Ruckus the previous owner modified to hell and back, its super fun when it's warm out.
Yeah I go through maybe 4 gallons a week and I have a decent commute(20mi or so). In my state I don't even need a license for a 50cc, so that's nice until I get a car and all.


I have a license, but no car. Driving is scary and I'm easily spacing out/get distracted, therefor I prefer the passenger seat.


File: 1516402395565.jpg (40.43 KB, 640x480, BF150721_1.jpg)

yeah, 96 toyota granvia
is a JDM import, they're designed as passenger transport vehicles but i removed the rear seats to use a tradesman vehicle.

it has the same engine and likely drivetrain as a similar era hiace van, but drives nicer.
only bought it because it was cheap

living in new zealand most vehicles are japanese. both imported JDM and exported models. growing up all i knew was old japanese cars. the tuning scene here is big into vintage JDM and there are a lot of older jap vehicles around.

it costs very little to keep a vehicle legal, maybe 200-300$ a year. no compulsory insurance.


What I would give for no compulsary insurance. £1600 was last years total just for insurance.

Money down the drain…


Yeah but driving in the city is kind of scary, so I don't use it oftenly.

Not my back and it's a 92, mine pretty much looks the same though.

Am not a fan of pick-ups, but this one looks fine.
I know what you mean, I would vomit out of emotions if I even scratched my car.

I own a miata and love every moment of it
Planning on getting an S2000 as soon as I can afford it
Going to Autocross next weekend cause driving fast is really fun


File: 1518922952046.jpg (263.75 KB, 1000x1415, 1517417687095.jpg)

I've been trying to find a cheap used scooter/moped for a while now, but can't find anything (France). My only choice would be to buy new, and that costs at least in the 1300-1400 euros… a lot more than I can afford.

Scooters are definitely cool, though.


I got a skoda fabia, she's nothing special but I love her more than anything in the world. I'm at my absolute comfiest sat in my car with a bag of sweets and a full tank of petrol, ready to travel anywhere

An old Nissan sentra that looks similar to pic related. Car is reliable and comfy so I like it, but will have to upgrade it eventually due to
>tfw no air bags and have to drive 100km/h on open road to get anywhere
Just have to get enough money allocated for a new car first.


File: 1523093274600.jpg (5.34 MB, 3840x2160, DSC_0176.jpg)

Had some fun with this for a while but sold it because of how high maintenance it was and the ticking time bomb under the hood. Looking to get an older model Supra next.

Actually own 2, didn't learn my lesson with the '01 Jimmy, loved it so much I got an '03 Blazer to go with it.


File: 1523222332981.jpg (1014.78 KB, 2464x1632, DSC_0133_proc.jpg)

i drive my moms van :\

it gets me to school and work, which is all i need it for. also, i was able to drive across the country to meet someone recently. i deeply appreciate the utility of cars, i just wish i had something cool like a jzx100 or galant vr4


I would love to have a vr4. I loved my 02 Galant before getting the Blazers, that thing was a blast.


No. I'm too poor to own a vehicle and my motor skills are so bad I'll probably never pass my driver's test. I've only been trying for a decade now.

What car is that?


File: 1529003151301.jpg (45.54 KB, 640x442, 1512298910093.jpg)

I own a 1986 Honda Prelude and a 1997 Volvo 850R.


I used to have a Mazda Miata. However, it was really unreliable, so I traded it in and bought a boring sedan instead. People would always say "nice car" when they saw my Miata because they didn't know how bad it was as a daily driver. I don't regret getting a Miata, but I'll never own another one again.


Currently waiting on my Sonoma to die and hoping I can make an 80's Plymouth Turismo run well enough to make it to work and back.

Nice taste. Is the Prelude the one with twin carbs?

I want an NA. I had an NB but it got t-boned. I don't think I'd mess with this one as much beyond maybe nice tires. Parts cost too much.


File: 1545708138136.jpg (5.46 MB, 4608x3456, IMG_20181218_160003281_HDR.jpg)

I just got my NB a little over a month ago and I love it. Shame about the storage space though.


Thank you, my Prelude has fuel injection. The Preludes had twin carbs from 1982 to 1990 depending on the trim model. After 1985, Honda began to offer the Si trim level with fuel injection. Good luck with your Sonoma and Turismo, I always liked the styling of 80's domestic hatchbacks.


File: 1545765933606.jpg (249.24 KB, 1920x1080, image000000.jpg)

I've had my car for quite a while now, a 2003 VW Jetta. Lots of good memories and wild rides.

2AM drives on backroads is the best.


From the thumbnail your car looks like it is on fire.


To destroy all you've done~

Save for an older BMW in good condition. The modern ones are built to deteriorate once the lease/warranty period is over.

theres a 325e for 3 grand nearby, i wanna get it for 2. are E's really that bad?

Haggling the price shouldn't be too hard. The 325E isn't a bad car, it's just somewhat slower than the other E30 trim models because that engine was designed with fuel economy in mind. As long as it was maintained by the previous owner it shouldn't give you any reliability issues. The only other advice that I have is that if you can find European bumpers online, you should install them.


no i recently got my license. Just drive with my parents car. I hope i can one day buy a car with pop up headlights.




I have a Subaru BRZ. It was a lot of fun, but it's kinda slow, and if I drive a lot, the manual shifting makes my past shoulder injury act up. I'd rather live in a city with public transportation or ride a bike tbh.




File: 1549594361809.jpg (815.13 KB, 2048x1365, 1991_mitsubishi_3000gt_vr4….jpg)

You can find a variety of those kinds of cars for cheap depending on where you live and it's pretty entertaining seeing the reactions of people when you turn your headlights on.


Try finding a less popular model if you want to get a good deal. People are starting to charge collector prices for cars like the RX7, 240SX, and the MR2, but you can find cars like the SC2, Celica, and 3G Accord for less than $1500.

Can you please think twice before formatting your posts like this the next time you post? They kind of go against the comfy atmosphere of this board. Thanks.


>I'd rather live in a city with public transportation or ride a bike tbh.

That's unexpected from someone with a manual BRZ.


Thank you! I've also seen a cheap Porsche 924 with pop up headlights.

Just today i was driving in front of a miata and was kind of jealous of those headlights.


Don't get me wrong, it's really fun to drive, but considering I'm not taking it to a track, I'd be better off with a luxury sedan for the space, status, and soundproofness. But even then, I'd rather live in a city and not own a car since there's a higher likelihood of finding like minded people to be friends with, at least for me.

I own a Ural CT. Very handy as I have a tiny garage and no street parking. I've also abused work car privileges for longer trips in shit weather. Public transport takes care of the rest, I love taking the train!

>I'd rather live in a city with public transportation or ride a bike tbh.
I don't need a car for day to day stuff, but it sometimes is a problem to not have one. Like if I want to go to the hardware store or recycling center (not in the city centre) and buy something big… it's difficult. There's also a feeling of confinement because my ability to go beyond walking distance is dictated by other people. And I can't just go for a night drive or visit the nearest 24/7 place at 2 AM.


I'd like to own a motorcycle at some point. I'm actually saving up for a Honda CB400.


That's a good bike! Have fun, sushi.

Audi still works, had only one problem - leaking coolant, paid 12€ for fix.
Love driving this car, can't go 2 days without it.


File: 1551142331700.jpg (3.98 MB, 4032x3024, IMG_2546.JPG)

Have this one.


i have a 2005 toyota corolla that my dad got off of facebook marketplace. It has a manual window crank and the glovebox falls off if you open it too fast. and i think it might have a different radio from the one the car was made with.


nice me too


I don't own a car yet, but I'm thinking about getting one now that I am taking driving lessons.

So used to riding a bike and the great visibility I get from one. Any cars I should consider that doesn't have too much of my view blocked by pillars, tiny windows, and head rests.

Was thinking I could get an older A4, Passat, or maybe a Saab 9-3, but I've never actually driven those, so I have no clue how those are like.


Saab 9-3's are pretty comfy and a good choice for a first car.


File: 1555117761669.jpg (116.22 KB, 640x480, saab.jpg)

Saabs are great. The later 900 models are built like tanks and are easy to maintain due to some of the interesting features that are built in to the engine (like a spring loaded pulley that can take the tension off the serpentine belt with out stretching it) and the post 94 models work well for highway speeds and have a lot of easy to get GM parts. I had a 96 and drove it to 327K miles before selling it for parts due to me abusing it quite a bit. Still ran great when I sold it.

Depending on where you are, you could also find Porsche 944 in decent shape for cheap if you dont mind having no cargo space.


i'm planning to get a saab 900 for my first car (not the other sushi roll), i'm really excited for it!


you troll


File: 1555207339129.jpg (176.82 KB, 940x676, 944.jpg)

The 944 is a great car. Good for a lot of highway driving and is set up stock as good cruiser and its pretty easy to maintain as there were a lot of them so parts are easy to get and despite not having a lot of room in the engine bay, they are pretty easy to work on so long as you dont try to race it everywhere and warp the head and valves.
They also look great and feel like you are driving a jet fighter.


I've got a 2007 toyota camry which is still in really good condition. It was previously owned by my uncle who only drove it to work and back (he also has a minivan which he used whenever they went anywhere as a family). The car was also kept in a garage for its entire life, so the paint is in really good condition. I actually just recently passed 100k miles just last month!

My dad has a new 5 series BMW, and while it's a really nice car I wouldn't recommend buying one outside of the warranty period. These cards need repairs every year and they can get very expensive very quickly. It's perfectly fine to splurge on it if you can afford it as a fun toy, but it definitely isn't a wise choice.


2017 Toyota Corrola SE
boring, but it basically drives itself, which is good because I suck at driving


I happened to bump into this 25 part video series on youtube today and skimmed through it. Some guys rebuild a wrecked supercar, and I had no idea that something like this was even possible. It looks really complicated.


File: 1587838294206.jpg (83.82 KB, 850x850, photo_2020-03-23_15-16-47.jpg)

I haven't bought a scooter. I haven't bought anything. I haven't even got the license. In my state even 49cc still requires a license.
This year I gotta get a car license. Corona-chan says that being able to move freely and have a trunk to haul stuff in is better than a motorcycle, and great overall. I'm pinning this thread in the browser to remind me every evening that two years have passed, and I haven't done shit. And it's going to repeat if I don't act.
I can't afford anything remotely new tho. 3rd gen honda civic looks nice, and it's probably the best I could get in the near future.


File: 1588046588752.jpeg (8.2 KB, 319x158, index.jpeg)

I don't own a car, but I'm thinking of getting a black VW beetle. Is that a good idea?


2002 Honda Accord. Loud as hell because someone stole my catalytic converter. Hope they got some money from that platinum.

My lil MX-5 (>>5295) is still going strong, but with finishing at Uni and looking to starting work, I've been dreaming of a Volvo V70R as a main car. Loads of room for putting stuff, quirky 5 cyl engine with power and 4wd, a solid chassis setup, comfy, it's the ideal roadtrip/commuting machine (save for the terrible MPG).

Ganbaru sushi, few moments in my life have felt better than being 17 and driving out of the test center with my own car and license, free to drive wherever I wanted. I really love those 3rd-4th gen Civics, although I've never driven one, especially the 4wd wagon ones. Weird but cool.

It's a pretty comfy car


I have sentiment for those cars, as they were pretty common in my (rural) area. My godfather had Uno Fire, which was indeed 🔥. They look great, though they are way too small.


Two wheels good.


Too poor to own a car atm. I'm also considering the idea of living in a different country so I'm probably going to get something not too expensive. Doesn't help that I don't know too much about cars.

Currently considering 1st/2nd gen Mazda3 or a 4th-6th gen Golf. Wish I knew someone who can teach me stick so I can look into older cars.

I don't really know anything about cars but I like driving with loud music, I do it often on some back roads just to clear my head. I have a 2015 Chevy Sonic that used to belong to a family member. Pretty boring car I suspect but I'm not a car person and it drives, and the speakers work so I'm happy with it.


File: 1606894012997.jpg (296.05 KB, 1280x960, Hirsch_Performance_Saab_9_….jpg)

Neat to see Saab mentioned. I own a 2003 Saab 9-5 Aero wagon. I love it, I wouldn't want another car in its place but I hope I can see what a 900 turbo is like first hand.

Did you get one? Updates!


File: 1607097654632.jpg (3.42 MB, 4032x3024, 20201125_155227.jpg)

I sold my deteriorating Miata and replaced it with a Honda CR-Z hybrid! This car is so fun to drive, and I get 58mpg (imp) on roadtrips. As far as daily drivers go, I'm pretty happy with this one. Can't wait to waste invest thousands on ordering Spoon parts from Japan!

I was seriously considering a 9-5 Aero wagon, great taste.


File: 1607107752860.jpg (53.97 KB, 800x540, 2001_Saab_9-3_Viggen_31.jpg)

Just about to finish up my license. Took quite a bit longer than I thought. I think I should be finished around January or February.

As it looks now, I'm still sure my first car will be a 9-3 or 9-5. They tend to be in such good shape for their age and price, hard to pass on that deal. There are some nice older Volvos too that I'm curious about. Not so hot on the A3/A4 or Golf/Passat anymore, since the cheaper ones tend to have a fair bit of rust, but I wouldn't pass on a good deal on one of those either (assuming no rust, and in good mechanical condition).


I do basic maintenance on my car myself and really like to drive but I feel bad sometimes because it's always full of garbage and I can't motivate myself to clean it except when I have to take it to the shop. There's still some junk in the back from when I last moved a few years ago.


If you can maintain your car, you can clean it.


Man, that car was not having a good day. Hope he's doing better now.


Would you recommend one of these? I think they really look fantastic but was put off by how slow they are. Not really 'the new CRX'


File: 1608142861931.png (612.78 KB, 942x696, ClipboardImage.png)

Definitely not the new CRX SiR, more of a CRX Hf.

Honestly best I can say is see if you can try one yourself, it's not very powerful but when you're actually driving one it feels good, fun to rev out and has the low down electric motor push to spin tyres. It's still more of a handling car than a power car, coming from a Miata I have no regrets, but coming from a more powerful car you may not like it.

It definitely makes tradeoff between power and econonomy, and for me using it as as daily it sits in a nice medium, but if you're just in it for performance there's probably better cars.
Even if you supercharged it (180-200hp safe) you probably coulda just bought a similar age Type-R for the same power with a similar or better handling chassis, even if you lose that short wheel base fun and good looks of the CR-Z.


When I realize how much having my car cost me, I traded it in for a new Suzuki Swift. One day, I'll get a two-wheeler but for now, small cars are the go for my limited budget.



I never like the look of the crz in pictures. but whenever I see one i like them. But I'm still sad it doesn't look more like the crx
Hope you found a nice Saab
there are some really cheap used Scooters. If you look for old Hondas they also look quite good


If you want to save money on transport, make sure you have a bicycle as well.

Tanks are more fun than cars but their fuel consumption per kilometre is terrible.


>posting tanks in a car thread
Way to kill the discussion, mister!


I had/have an e87, 120d msport, one or two go faster bits.
Great car, but I got pretty sick of it over time. My partner fell in love as I fell out, and when we ended up moving apart for work she took it with her. I'm glad it worked out, I'm sure I'd have missed it if I sold it. It's also much colder where she lives so I get to take it for a hoon in the snow when I visit~

I'm with you here. Owning a car can be great fun, but owning a car you don't have to use is sublime luxury.

I had a first gen Mazda 3 and loved it. Comfortable, practical, cheap to run and super engaging to drive.
Not the fastest, but really great tactile feel and road feedback that always put a smile on my face pushing it down the back roads.

This too is a wisdom I recommend.

Since the e87 moved away I've been two wheels only and loving it.
Cycling is great, and for the longer trips and bigger cargo I have a 200k mile ship of theseus NC750.
People say they're boring bikes, I think they're just boring people.

I do love a chally, but if I had the money it would be a CVRT for me

These days the cost/fun ratio of bikes outdoes cars for me. If do end up getting another car it would be for maximum practicality.
I've often been tempted by a first gen Berlingo multi space, but the salty roads have almost wiped them out round here.


It's been 3 and a half years since I've made that post huh. I ended up getting an FA5 Civic Si instead of a Mazda 3. It's the most engaging car I've driven thus far but, just by pure instinct, I think the steering feel and road feedback falls a bit short. That said, the engine and transmission makes it so that I don't really care that much.


I’ve been using a Honda passed down since the early 2000s that’s still going. I like being able to drive, but I dream of the day where owning a car isn’t mandatory to participate in society.

Glorious bike lord, I envy thee

Tank you for being a friend


Ah, nice.
We never got the FA here, but I have friends with EP and FK civics.
I also had an absolute shed of a CN2 accord.
Fantastic engines and gearboxes, pretty decent suspension and chassis but average steering on all of them. Still great to drive, but definitely a weak point.


A bit late, but I never bought a Saab, nice cheap examples got sold before I could call. Bought a VW Polo instead and I loved it. Now I have a newer Mazda MX-5 which I love even more. The MX-5 is so much fun on the narrow and bumpy roads we have around here.


For sure. At least with regards to the suspension, and even the steering to an extent, that can be improved relatively easily. I'd much rather have a good drivetrain. Unfortunately it's so good that K20s are ridiculously expensive, not that I plan on blowing mine up. EP and FK's are great as well. I prefer the FL over the FK personally but I'd be happy with either.

And yeah Accords are great, if a clean CG shows up I would definitely try and get it. I looked up more on the CN2's and they look nice, especially the wagon variant. What happened to yours?


Those roads wouldn't happen to be near Swanwick would they?

Sold it on and bought the e87. I loved it, but my partner and I wanted to get one car that could do both our needs.
It was the top spec wagon with all sorts of silly features (Like a DVD drive just for loading maps onto the sat nav). Had a very hard life, but never let us down.


Central parts of norway. Even the main E-roads can be nice and twisty, but the more rural roads have less traffic.


>Had a very hard life, but never let us down.
To me stuff like that had always been a matter of perspective. It may have had a hard life but if something was made to endure that then on some level I think it's respectful to make sure it can fulfill that purpose. It's why I somewhat feel conflicted to see cars meant to be driven kept in unreasonably pristine condition.

Conversely, if there was a reason to get a different car that fit a different need then I can see why you had to sell it. That's just how things end up sometimes, as uninsightful that may be.
