I'm looking for small wheelbased cars with a decent amount of power and solid suspensions. I'd like aftermarket support but its not a must. Trying to keep the car small either 2 door coupes or 3 door hatchbacks.

I remember reading on his news feed a while back that he has battles with depression but also just his general life getting in the way of his stickers. Either way, if you're going to start a business to sell a product and just fall off the face of the earth from it, take a day or two to apologize, refund money, and shut down.

Sorry for the late shipment, guys. I had a bunch of people order holographic stuff and I only had a small 12x12 piece left. Orders are shipping out today.

Still no new designs since I've been busy adulting, but I'm still available for custom requests.

How do I cope br/o/s?
I genuinely loved my car. I've been a lonely loser for as long as I can remember and my car was my vent for that. I poured all my affection into her, spending hundreds of hours fixing everything that went wrong with it, and keeping it immaculately clean. Yesterday, some stupid fuckhead boiracer in a Golf blasted through a red light doing twice the speed limit and flattened the back end of my car. Insurance immediately totaled it out and towed it away. I walked away just fine. The shock of what happened didn't dawn on my until now, but they took it away. All the money and time and love I poured into that God damn machine was all for nothing. I feel like I've lost a close friend and I cried for the first time in as long as I can remember.

Has anybody gone through anything similar or am I just a dillusional retard? I feel like absolute shit.

Share your weird story´s of people reacting to your car.

I´ll start because happened 2 days ago.

I got my brand new bmw M2 lci a week ago (same color like pic) and parked at a gas station while talking to buddy who´s washing his car 30m away. Group of 4 young dudes go to the car, taking pictures etc.

10min. later I go back to car, dudes still admiring car, talk to them a little and say I´m short on time and get in.

They jump in their car and follow me.
Okay they like the car and have fun chasing it a bit, I´m cool with that.
They follow me all the way home and i decide not to park infront of my house because reasons.

What do? can´t park infront of a random house and walk right onto someones property to get rid of the dudes.

Drive out of my town and shake them off, then return home.

i really want to fuck the puegot, toyota, citroen, mazda and lamborghini grills desu

I don’t have the sticky for these.
I also don’t usually start threads for generals.
But I need somewhere to complain.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK, I JUST FOUND SOME SHIT OUT.
So i’ve Had my car for around three months now.
My shitty old Toyota Sienna never got the coolant changed or checked except for when it got oil changes, which, being the /o/ equivalent of a normie, I had the dealership take care of.

Well, now that i’ve Got the falcon, I find out that coolant is a monthly (minimum) thing that I have to check.
Why?
Because it started running hotter than usual.
I had been misreading the cap as 240 when it was actually hovering right at 190-200.
Not good, but not horrible either.
Well, I took her out to go see Christmas lights with my family earlier, and then came back home. I checked the cap itself on a whim because I know that the electrical readout is BS and I was just feeling a little suspicious.
It was ACTUALLY 240.

Gonna try and restore the interior, drop it an inch, switch from door mirrors yo fender mirrors, add a front lip, paint it red and black out all the chrome and trim. Those are Caroll Shelby wheels, will probably sell them and find something that goes with the color I'm painting it.

How come a lot of the manufactures before 2000 had both V6 and straight 6 options at the same time?
Like Nissan having the RB engines besides the VG engines.

But at present time. There is almost only V6 options available across all the manufactures?

That's because those engines are objectively superior.

The V6 is the CUV of vehicles.

Tons of trade offs to make it the best "all rounder" so it actually turns out only to be OK at some things and excels at nothing.

Then explain why the V6 is the winningest engine configuration in F1.

Can we have a cheap part discussion?

Got my first job and need a reliable car for it. I took out $500 of credit on paypal to pay $500 for a 98 honda crv from a family member. It runs great. Engine and trans are good. Ac/heat/cruise/windows/etc all that stuff works.
The only downside is that it has a bad shake on the highway unless you're not maintaing speed or accelerating.
It has a bunch of thunk sounds over bumps and feels swaylike. Also some humming noise.
Im not a mechanic like most people might be but Im pretty sure it probably needs stuff like ball joints, wheel bearings, tie rods, maybe struts and shocks.

Obviously im broke as fuck still but i want to make the thing safer to drive especially with winter here and we usually get some shitty snow/ice conditions.

Stuff like Mevotech/Ultrapower/SKP i'm looking are $15-25 where moog/acdelco are like $60+.
I want to replace everything in one go on of my 4-6 day weekends and cant afford to buy all moog/honda/acdelco. I see a lot of rbad reviews for the cheap stuff saying "only got 40-60k out of it in a year or two before i had to replace it".
Isn't that decent for a $20 part? If I could get a year or two out of the cheap stuff I'd be fine because by then Id probably be in a financial situation where if it needed replaced again I could afford the moog stuff or whatever.

Im at only $240 in my cart replacing everything wheel bearings, tie rods, sway bar links, control arms /w ball joints, etc. Using the cheap stuff.

Try to use the mevotech ttx ball joints they are 30 and 40 upper and lower per side. But they will last you way longer than the 20 dollar trash. Balls joints i would get mid tier stuff it isnt fun to redo them. For the rest of the things you can afford to cheap out. But ball joints pretty much hold your shoes.
>>
Everything I've gotten from rockauto has been the cheapest parts, but is higher quality.

Centric brakes are better than acdelco and shits a fraction of the price. My brake pads are lasting forever, my rotors don't look disgusting yet, and they never squeal (paid $5 more for shims).
