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.
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.
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.
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.>>2851
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.
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.
Am not a fan of pick-ups, but this one looks fine.>>2978
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
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
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.
several months later and I've just bought this
can't wait to go on fun driving adventures with her
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.>>4822
Nice taste. Is the Prelude the one with twin carbs?>>4823
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.
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.
I've had my car for quite a while now, a 2003 VW Jetta. Lots of good memories and wild rides.>>2842
2AM drives on backroads is the best.
From the thumbnail your car looks like it is on fire.
To destroy all you've done~
theres a 325e for 3 grand nearby, i wanna get it for 2. are E's really that bad?
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.
ITS NOT BROOOOWN ENOUGH!
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. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hidden_headlamp#List_of_cars_with_hidden_or_pop-up_headlights
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. >>5011>>5014
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.
>>5012>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'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.
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.
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.
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!
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!>>4903
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 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.
2002 Honda Accord. Loud as hell because someone stole my catalytic converter. Hope they got some money from that platinum.
ewwwwww 1.6 wtf
have a b5 1.8t w some mods and she pullsssssss
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).>>7162
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.>>7184

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.
