Why do people with tight budget buy 20 year old bmws and mercedes s-classes wich will barely work and will need expensive repairs constantly instead of a new Suzuki or Dacia?

I remember the 1.9D in an old Clio I had did well over 400k Km. But then again, pretty much all 90's diesel engines were reliable, the only exception I can think of was maybe PSA's 1.4D
Lol I drove both corsa b and duster. You wrot "my corsa".That's stockholm syndrome hitting you hard, boy. Duster ain't fancy and is slow, but hell, it's way above corsa b or even corsa c (drove this beercan too)

It looks fucking good. I don't agree with it either tho, especially since it makes 11 less hp than the regular z900. Dumb

it's definitely a turn-of-the-millenium FnF-inspired look, but I have to wonder who thought it looked good with all that random blue leather. The seats (suede inserts!) and carpet are fine but the shift boot and wheel make it ricey. Aside from that it's not any more garish than the black/red NA Special Edition.
Yeah maybe, maybe even us or japan, who knows. Theres a nice reputable japan importer a city over but it just didnt make any sense why there are literally less 1.8 miata NAs for sale than there are oddball cars like rr wraiths or fisker karmas
Rally style is my jam. Seriously considering a lightpod for my NB since I drive in the mountains at night, and I've got no fogs so I can legally run an extra pair of high-intensity lights. Dunno how a set of Rallyarmors would look on it though, even with a bumper cut. Some speed holes would probably be sufficient.

check ground points if everything else is wired properly

buy or lease?
31 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Best way is to use a 0% interest loan (credit cards/home equity line, family ect.) on a used car thats 3-5 years old, or 50k miles or less. Drive it for a few years and sell it. You will have missed the massive depreciation curve that occurs in the first years of ownership but still have the benefits of a relatively new car. The loan allows you to put almost no money upfront and spend it elsewhere. You're doing it wrong any other way. Cars are a liability no matter how you look at them. Smart money is on getting a bicycle.
I had to pick up my friend from the Dodge dealership last year and saw their advertisement of leasing a Hellcat for $450 a month or a Viper SRT for $650 a month. I talked with a salesmen for shits and giggles and just asked him out the leasing. He said to qualify for that pricing you needed extremely good credit, but he also said that it was the only way could move their two vipers. He said they had two Vipers that just sat on the dealership showroom for over a year with little interest. Once they offered a lease, they were able to get rid of them.

>Leasing a tool

Would you lease a chainsaw?
>0% interest loan
Add zero down as well and I agree with you. But you usually need good credit to pull that off.
Its 2018, credit card companies are literally giving you money to sign up for 0% interest credit cards, you have to be a goddamn idiot to have anything less than perfect credit.

Why were you in the left lane if it was an empty road? Moron
¿Why does it matter if it is empty?
Because a faster vehicle might come along and want to pass you. That's why it's the passing lane
Clearly wasn't empty since someone was wanting to pass
If they're going faster and should be in the right lane, and the road is otherwise empty, they will simply keep driving. Lane change isn't necessary to travel faster than another lane.

Never go by 'what the manual says.' Oil pans are equipped with dipsticks for a reason. Use it.

Ford once overfilled my ex's Fiesta. Checked before we drove away. Talked to tech, as I didn't know much tolerance that particular engine had before whipping begins. He brought that thing right back in the bay and drained it.
Too much oil will cause the crankcase to beat it all over the inside of the block and whip air into it. The oil will actually look light and frothy, as well as killing horsepower. What do you think happens when low viscosity oil that is 80% air gets pushed through an oil gallery into a main bearing?
Gonna push out the rear main seal and have a slow oil leak
No u

Yeah and after your 10 grand LS swap you're still stuck there because you're out of money. $40k car and it's just a dragster because you put a boat anchor in the front. Nice. You could have done that with a $4000 foxbody and had less weight to pull, and money left over for more power.

I'm looking into getting a new car and I came across a 2009 C63 Sedan with 71,000 miles for about $21,000. A W204 C63 Sedan is one of my dream cars and they're just now starting to be affordable.

Should I get it? What kind of reliability issues will I have going forward? What do you think about the car itself?
>open diff on a 500hp car
also head bolts.

Not too worried about the open diff, but I heard the head bolt problem wasn't that common and was kind of blown out of proportion.
it was just as common as the older BMW M5 rod bearing issue.
and when a head bolt broke you got $60k engine repair bills.

And how common is that? I haven't heard about it much.

This POS. it's small, not reliable, cheap and slow, very slow.
My buddy had one of these as his first car and said once: "watch how slow this thing is, i'm about to go all out." Then once he went "all out" i asked him if he's going to push it or nah, he said "that's what i just did!"

I laughed for 20 minutes straight and found out it had a whopping 45hp from a 1.0 4cylinder FedEx box filled with hamsters.
