What the fuck does /b/ drive, and a little bit about why you bought it!
Go go go.
This is my 1990 R32 GT-R. Well over 500HP, fully forged & rebuilt CP pistons 0.5 over size. Aftermarket con rods, HKS cams, 875cc injectors, rebuilt Apexi AX53b60 turbo.
Too much to name. I've built this car from ground up, a lot of time, research, and money gone into it. Best 26 setup I've seen, and still twin turbo with amazing throttle response.
Let me see your Corollas.
my jcw rally mini
1.8, and thats one of my few cars, and its 02, supercharged, underdriven at around 8 pnds. i also have an 05 bagged sube.
Nice man, is it turbo? I know heaps of the engines they have in them are turbo. What do they go like?
>inb4 truck in the city
This picture was only taken because I finally got a proper carwash. I live in the country
Okay dude hahaha
R33 was stock intermal rb25 tuned by myself to 500whp at 23.5psi. Poped that motor doing a powerskid. New set up is a cammed rb25/30
I drive a 1.8t beetle and a 1.6 miata
2012 STI. Can you say Ringland failure? Hopefully a built block with sleaved cylinders, turbo upgrade, and e85 in the future.
This is my beetle pushin stock 150 but feels around the same as the 116 miata because the power to weight is about the same on both
'93 miata: dropped 2", 15" enkei sr6 wheels, hankook ventus rubber. T25 going in this summer.
'96 powerstroke f250 7.3L turbo, 4" straightpipe turbo-back, manual trans, 4x4, stock now but getting 4" lift, 35's, flares, and brush guard this summer.
I go tiny and huge, no medium.
Looks like you replied to the wrong post.
But why would you need to camber to that extreme? At one point, the camber is so extreme that its bad for the car and it starts to scrape, the tires get uneven wear, and you probably get less grip from your tires because its at such an angle. Which is not very good considering you have an AWD rally car there.
On top of that, it looks stupid and in the future, people will look back and say "Wow. That was an actual fad?"
Kinda like the whole van mural thing or the bouncing hydraulic systems. Even the chrome tail lights.
Well I did drive this... But not anymore.
This is honestly one of the most fun things I've ever driven, like a go-cart on steroids.
This is kinda the same argument people make about tattoos. Yeah, it's their car instead of their own body but it's still their property so they can do whatever they want with it if it doesn't bother them. The culture itself is really about not needing an expensive-ass luxury car to have an identity and expressing yourself by getting a cheap car (usually an import) with an underrated engine and adding a personal touch to it. It's a great idea but of course with that much freedom of expression some people get extremely creative.
Only pic i got of the current wheels/tires on it. I need to go out for a shoot soon...
Had an '02 RSX til very recently when I got an '08 TL. It's amazing, i'm loving it. Pic related
A few, mainly Chasers, Supras, R32's, R33's, R31's, Cefiros, Laurels, Datsuns, RX3's, we have so many cheap imports.
I have a few friends in Brisbane and cars are so expensive over there compared to here!
But the difference is that people with tattoos only impact themselves. I've seen extreme camber cars jam up a mall parking lot right by a freeway exit. Guess who created a traffic jam adding 40 mins to someone's one work day? Not only that, but the bottom of the car can get scratched up and cause problems to the car that may leave that person stranded.
I don't give two shits if someone mods their car to look like a bird of paradise, but if their shit messes with other people's shit, then we have a problem.
My stance on this is if it doesn't affect anyone other than yourself, feel free to do it. Whether it be to paint your car bright neon green with chrome spinners or get piercings all over your face.
I also hate those stupid fucking fart can exhausts. The drivers who get those intentionally rev their engine thinking they're hot shit, only to add noise polution. Especially at 11:30-4:00am when I have work at 6:00.
Yea, kind of is just waiting to bite me in the ass, wish I had an updated picture of it, I'm planning to keep this one, the 1.8T engine with the APR ecu alone is supposed to kick ass, right now it's mostly fixing up the clutch, she has had 8 previous owners.
I drive a 2011 Scion TC. It's an excellent commuter that is still fun to drive. Also, I think the previous owner reflashed it and disabled the governor. I've had her up to 160 before. I'm told that isn't supposed to happen.
pic isn't mine, but is related
I get about 13-15 miles per gallon. Not the worst, definitely not the best, A better street tire would probably help, I have some of the more mild but nubby all terrains. Definitely want to go back to a more street friendly tire, they're loud as fuck. But I love the damn thing.
>saving up for supra, my dream car
found a fully moded one on tradecarsale in Tokyo currently $48.000 + $10.000 for import because I live in a shit country, I miss 8k more need to wait 2 more months.
Supra is fully moded: only 91.016 miles, RHD, twin turbo, 3.0, MT, petrol, 840 WHP, welded slip diff, 3.1 front camber 2.1 back, anti-lag, anti-roll, 5-5 brake ratio, custom HB, spring rate 12.38 to 6.34, full hammer shark body kit, interior completely changed but no back seats... that's all I know about the car so far, ill know more when I contact the company.
This is my 1982 Vw Rabbit with a 2L aba conversion with upgrade cam, lifters, headers, etc. All and all pushing maybe close to 200hp total and its light as all hell. Next step is coil overs. I love the aesthetics and its super fun to drive.
yeah not really because my country is a shithole and on top of those $58.000 in total I will have to pay at least about 4-5k more for checkup costs additional fees when I get the car in to the country because of some law problems with those kind of import cars...etc.
And I'm putting it to stage one this fall.
this was my BMW
before a Mustang lost control
and scraped my ride
Later this month I'm resigning from my job and won't be employed for a while.
Anyone wanna hit up some mountains? I went to Fort Mountain State Park today. Was decent, but roads weren't as tight as I would have liked. Too open and unable to push your car on most of the route without being 80 to 100+.
Any North GA/TN/AL/NC fags wanna hit up the Tail Of the Dragon route in a couple weeks or so?
I plan to map a route that is strictly rural driving to get there. I know a fuckton of country roads deep in Ga and TN that head towards the TOTD.
U32 sr20det swapped b13 sentra
Always wanted a Jeep, always wanted an old car I could work on myself
2001 vvt mx-5 Miata.
1.8 way torsten lsd
Track suspension, etc.
Nice man, OP here.
Reminds me of this - my mate bought this Pulsar as a daily a year ago and we SR20DET swapped it and put a GTi-R hood on it.
VIP-ish 94 Lexus LS400.
2003 Ford Taurus SES
It was cheap for how well taken care of it was, and parts are always relatively easy to find if shit ever hits the fan.
Have had to get a new alternator, few things with the brakes fixed, something about a god damn misfire in the engine and the underside where the plastic skirt things usually are is rusted to fuck.
1993 Mazda Mx-6. Not my picture, but this car in a a dark green color.
Hard out man, so much fun too. FWD power.
Pic related, mine looks the exact same.
Shit's fun. Never had a car to put a smile on my face like this little box.
Fair enough. Tbh I can't be assed to remember that 1st gen models for most JDM cars even exist since they all look the same. That'll be a sexy conversion though, I like how you're making small changes to make it better without drastically changing the identity of the Sentra.
I'm all about the OEM+ style.
The vvt mx5 is also mine. The red one. I just don't see the point in making it look like something it isn't ya know? And thanks man I appreciate it. That b13 is the most fun vehicle ive ever owned. And I've had several 450+whp cars that were neck snappers.
But this gal is seriously like a go-kart on steroids
Yea, Right now I'm just fixing up the minor things and a new clutch.
'11 Taurus SHO.
Bought it cuz I wanted something fast-ish, big, and decent looking. 365hp - 5s 0-60
So many faggots in here with Subaru's and VW's who think their cars are cool. Just like every other idiotic 20-something who still likes to entertain their childhood dream of being a race car driver while they siphon the trickling flow of money they get from their pizza delivery into their decade old piece of shit they've convinced themselves is cool
You sound like the kind of guy who goes around blowing those mid forties midlife crisis faggots who go out and buy camaro's because "muscle car".
1986 Monte Carlo SS with 427 LS7 swap. Naturally aspirated beast with full competition suspension and brake system. Still has the th400 turbo Trans for some fucking reason. 647 hp, 635 ft lbs at the wheel. 0-60 in 3.8, 0-100 in 5.2, and runs a 10 second quarter. Bought it from an old F1 engineer's wife. She found his girlfriend and sold it to me because I helped pack his shit.
I buy car. I tell salesman, "Make go fast." They saying, "Ok." I drive home. Shit self. 670 HP 2016 Mustang with Roush supercharger. FTW
Bought a 2004 maxima when I graduated from hs about 5 years ago. Been quite reliable tbh. I'm looking at an Audi for my next car hopefully an a6 but haven't ruled out the a4. Personally I don't understand the love for cars, if it gets me around and doesn't look like shit I'll drive it. Also buying a car off the lot is the biggest mistake you can make. If you don't have the cash in full don't bother buying it the only big ticket item you should ever invest in is a home. Pic related my car just picture it black.
My 1995 FD3S Rx7, imported it from Japan, it's always been my dream car, rotaries are also unique
>Best 26 setup I've seen
lol. dont know where you're from but thats fairly standard for a worked rb26, dont get me wrong its nice but still a dime a dozen. far from the best one ive seen. not even close
Ive been looking at an Mx-6 as a daily as I dont want to daily my Rx7, what do you think of yours?
Currently driving a BMW 335xi as my everyday car. Pic related
>thinks he knows about cars
I daily a laurel with a welded diff, you dont even notice it unless parking.
if you have a rwd car and dont weld the diff or get an lsd youre an utter faggot
1991 Audi Quattro 200 20v Turbo straight piped with open down pipe stock everything else.
Wheels are WedsSport SA-70's, 17"
(This photo was before i took the spoiler off)
How them apex seals? Any problemos?
I always wanted one of these. Rotary appeals to me.
Here's the old ladies car.
Obvious troll is obvious.
But to sate your need for attention, I prefer trucks for work and for pleasure. Can't tow a boat with a fancy car. Plus I'm 6'5". Fuck any car. Twice.
Was missing a headlight cover cause it flew off on the way back from New Plymouth, fixed it now though
Sweet, if sideways. Mine's not air-cooled though a buddy has a 993 I'd kill for.
Basically this. Decent gas mileage, 95k miles, gets me and the kids where we need to be.
Usually no drama but it's in the shop, needs a new door latch.
First of the M sport badge
Less made than M3"s
More power than a turbo skyline of the same year
The engine with a B7 alpina performance was faster than a Porsche 911 (which was said to be the fastest car in the world)
'08 335 vert. Once you get the fuel pump replaced they're awesome. Except for throttle tip-in, which sucks.
Here's my car. From 25 years ago.
That fucker was a lot of fun actually.
2011 wrx with a down pipe, blow off valve, intake, and a couple other things done to it. just over 300hp, but its my daily driver and im not an enthusiast. I bought it with the modes that are on it and i dont drive it too hard because i want to keep it forever. just enough to feel in control on a 25 mile commute to work. not so much that every car guy wants to race, its nice. dont have a picture sry
Pretty good on fuel and live in northern Canada
it's a huge piece of shit
selling it, asap
I wanted to like this car. Looks better than a Miata, but it about half the fun and twice the maintenance.
first car 99 Dodge Intrepid. 2.7 l engine blew up at like 150k. Drove a 93 festiva for a year until I sold it. Next was a 97 Buick Riviera with 3800 supercharged v6. just replaced that with a 2013 Hyundai Sonata limited. because I needed a car from this Millennium and I liked the looks and price.
rear struts are completely fucked, engine needs a rebuild soon, turbo shits oil occasionally, seats are worn out, 5th gear grinds like a desperate single mom and electrical gremlins galore
Yet I drive like a king. Engine output... I live in the Netherlands, what's the use of it when all roads are traffic jams. I did 260km/h in Germany, that's good enough. Acceleration is faster then average so I'm happy. And my sound system is pumped up, so I can just relax in traffic jam, and everyone around me can relax with me. Everything is automatic, all I have to do is steer and step on the gas.
>I also hate those stupid fucking fart can exhausts. The drivers who get those intentionally rev their engine thinking they're hot shit, only to add noise polution. Especially at 11:30-4:00am when I have work at 6:00.
I like this guy. Preach
first off i don't know whether to be confused because i'm missing something or amazed at how retarded you are because no one mentioned fuel.
second, it costs 1.67 USD per gallon in my state
in conclusion, kill yourself
I daily drive a 2001 Honda accord and a 2008 Kawasaki ninja500r
I also have a 1991 Honda crx si project.
The ninja I picked up because the guy selling it was a complete tard. Bike had 3900 miles on it and I paid 900 dollars.
Trading that in for pic related on the second weekend of June, 2016cbr650f.
I fucking hate that accord too. But it does get me from A to Be. So I can't complain too much.
Swapping a 93 12 valve cummins in to my 79 ford super cab
Yeah, I don't trust Toyotas and blowers. Surprised about the other shit, but that cars gotta be 20 years old so I guess not too bad.
I had a C-55 for a while.
Yeah, i know the CRX. It's a souped up economy car with mediocore exceleration. It screams "I want a fast car but can't aford one". It's just as shitty as the RSX, Integra, RX-8 and all the other shitty import budget sports cars. If you want a fast Jap car get an Evo or a GSR.
That yours? You like? Caddy has really upped its game I must say - these look great.
My bro got a new SL. A real tank I must say.
It came with a 1.5 or 1.6 liter stock. You expect it to be fast?
Its also the father of the production of variable timing engines, has arguably the best handling for a non power steering vehical.
Slap in a b16a or any k series and you got 200 horse without touching the motor in a 1500lb car.
Mine is exactly like that one except for different rims and 5% tint.
Overall I like it, but it is a bit small for my taste.
I wish I would have bought the cts-v instead because it is not as fast as I would like. I have the performance package 3.6 which puts out over 300. I just would like more. The car is comfortable, and intuitive to drive.
I got it for rather cheap so I can't complain.
That Miata I had was about the funnest car I've ever had. I sold it and bought a Z28 Camaro vert 'cause I needed the back seat for kids.
That Camaro was a complete dull piece of shit compared to the Miata. Went like hell in a straight line, with all the body panels and dashboard wobbling. Don't buy a 4G Camaro - absolute junk.
'77 280z. L28et swapped. Boost turned up to ~10 psi. After market downpipe and exhaust. Removed bumpers and 5 speed swapped. Shits on more people than are expecting.
That Mercedes probably costs twice what my caddy did. I don't really have an opinion on Mercedes, I like the way they look but I haven't owned one, or even been in a newer one.
I owned one of those, they are decent little trucks for putting around. The only complaint I have is that they break traction like a mofo when it is wet.
88 corolla gts
Don't know why I bought it but I did
>made crazy amount of money every week
>never had a car cuz parents were poor
>saved 12,000 in 4 months
>got hot girlfriend
>felt stupid for not having a car
>bought 2010 mercedes c300 (2 years ago)
>blacked it out completely including limo black tint
>love it for what it is, feel like if i could go any faster than 150mph i would have killed myself by now
>currently saving for cls 63 amg
>got a lot of pussy
>still destroy faggots in street races but mainly just enjoy my luxury car
>get the satisfaction of saying my parents never bought me a car
one of these, 5 speed, has some dents and dings. Gets me where I want to go.
Generic google image, but pretty close.
It's a neat little car, bought because it was cheap and I wanted to save it from the PO.
Had a C-55 years ago, when they were new. Great car in most ways, just not very fun to drive.
I too have gotten a lot of pussy. Congratulations.
In the future, do not black your car out. Makes you look like a faggot tbh. Subtle is better.
98' 528i stock, (except for the fucked up shite alpine stereo some douche before me installed. 4th owner here.) Love this car, drives like the first day it had the ability to power itself.
196BHP (not much, but you would be surprised how fast this 17 year old fucker can go if you stomp the pedal.)
NOTE: not my image, just one of the same make and color of mine.
destroy them in my 2010 c300 mercedes. no need to look up stats. i do it everyday. a lot of people get these around where i live. I would say my 6 year old car is nicer with confidence. ive been inside them and even driven one. not bad. but not great
I was 18 i would never do it again. But it is different out here in southern CA. and i got everything done really nice. but i agree i would never have a blacked out car when im older
C36 amg, blast to drive, awesome sleeper, /comfy/, my baby.
You seem to be an industrious young man of discerning taste. Carry on anon!
i dont drive a 16 year old piece of shit car that girls laugh at. I could have bought a old corvette or an old porche but instead i look good at my work and i get pussy. I don't need to race people in a shitty car. I live in a nice high class area. Driving a dumper of a car (bmw) 16 years old LOL what a joke. You would never tlak to a girl here in that car. go ahead
bmw= plastic parts, piece of shit engine. no class. I have taste. Im not a faggot white teenager trying to race and im not a trashy middle eastern. I have taste. i drive a car that grown men drive. you are not on my level gtfo pussy
No, You are right, I don't need to fuck teenagers... I have a wife...
And I don't need to prove to people I'm not gay, so I drive what I like, Not what others like...
Now take that 0/10 attempt back to the mercedes forum where you fags belong.
You normally need to defend your hunk of shit car before you type rekd...
I know, I work on those craphouses all the time... We know them as money makers because those pieces of shit spend more time in the garage than on the road.
Hope you have a warranty idiot.
never had a single problem with my mercedes. never spend one single penny on it for any maintenance. i know people think they cost a lot but in my personal experience with my one single car i havent had a single problem or complaint. I raced my friend in a 2015 for fiesta and absolutely destroyed him. I know the stats may say something differently but i run my car in manual like a boss. plus there is nothing compared to the sound or interior as the mercedes that i have . the speakers are top quality. the leather is nice. interior nicer than fiesta and it obviously looks nicer. i did not get my car to go faster than a fiesta. i got it because its better in every way
Not sure if serious, but if me I'd get a used Boxster. Unless you need room for kids.
Dude, Mercedes > BMW unless you have a manual transmission.
Allow me to end this BMW vs Merc debate
American mechanics learned mercs because its a fucking cash printer as far as repairs go...
They avoid BMW because true engineering is hard... and besides the basic herp derp shit, stuff does not break.
Done and Done.
if you are married than i have most definitely 100% fucked more women than you have. i am 21 now and have had relationships with 3 women 2 were my friends mom and one had fake tits and is a tiny petite blond. please stop crying. any one i know could have bought your piece of shit 156 year old bmw. i could have bought 3. nt impressed bye. i could buy one right now just to throw it off a cliff and make you shut the fuck up.
I can almost believe that. Drive them all for a week and I guarantee you'd change your mind.
Not my car, numbnut.
I was proclaiming RKT FGT on that guy who proudly owns a car that will lose it's ability to stop for something as simple as a software glitch or blown fuse.
again not true. the funniest part about this "debate" that everyone is ignoring. i did not just go buy a mercedes. I test drove and learned about every single car i could drive. I could have got a brand new lexus 250 f. i could have got an audi. i coould have leased a brand new bmw. i could have bought an old corvette. and old porche. and old anything. i chose my mercedes. it was the best choice. so any of your uninformed bullshit is ignored. the mercedes SOUNDED the best. the engine was the most beast. i dont care if your car goes faster and sounds like a crying rice rocket bitch car
Case in point, Get a used BMW (16 years old) and it runs without ANY matenance for over a year,
Get a merc, (6 years old) and it shits out within the month...
Fuck Mercedes, they are the reason germany got fucked in the sky during WWII...
no. i did not buy it on sound im just not gonna repeat myself. but for your dumb comment. i will. i bought my mercedes because its nicer than any other car i could have bought imn my opinion. i test drove a porche. a corvette. a brand new bmw. a mercedes c63 amg. a brand new lexus 250 f . and audi. a land rover. and i CHOSE my mercedes. because it is not only nice. its speedy. and it allows me to savve for the car i REALLY want. do i think the c300 is the best car? fuck no. do i think mercedes is the best? maybe. but not for sure. either way. this is my FIRST car. that i bought myself. you have done nothing of the sort so all your opinions dont matter
I don't think you've ended the debate. Pretty sure you did not even contribute.
I've owned 2 mercs and currently 1 BMW. The mercs were without a doubt better built. Porsche better built than either, and massively more fun.
false, you dont see old supped up mercs because they are MORE expensive to make better. dumb asss everyone makes hondas better because THEY ARE CHEAP PIECES OF SHIT. not because they are the best made fucking idiot
This might just be OC copypasta-to-be we just witnessed.
Thank you for proving my point. The people who buy mercedes are always underaged fucks who care about how much "poon" their car attracts, You are the same as faggots who buy a subaru just for the look... No appreciation for real cars, just what you "think" looks/sounds/etc's the best. No real understanding of performance or value...
Might as well be riding on a moped if you are concerned about pussy, because unless you are driving a fucking SLS AMG you are not getting any. Meanwhile I go to car shows and get complements on my ratty ass beamer because I fucking KNOW the car and why it was of value to me...
E39 mother fucker, look it up sometime and see for yourself.
are you? did you test drive all the cars i just named? no? then shut your uneducated mouth. all of you are butthurt about my first car but its funny because in 5 years ill have a 180k car and wont care about anything i heard on 4han when i was 21
