Sup, /o/, here's the story.

I'm euroanon, i'm 30, i live in the city, drive daily, got a decent job lately and i plan to upgrade my car.

My first car (current) is a slow shitbox-sedan. I have a family, so i'm okay with sedan body in general, and i hate hatches.

Now i consider three variants on what to do with my carlife, i'll post it ITT, and i'd like to see your opinions after three more posts of mine.

>fun
Anon, i'm really considering this. But living with this. The mechanic /local ourguy who do rx8 for life, and who will rebuild it/ said that in general i should consider new suspension (about 700 euros) and ignition modules, that are no cheap either.
But as far as i can see - it's manageble to live with RX8, it's just a matter of balls.
>>
New Focus. If you are toting your family around, you'll likely want a) safety and b) reliability.
>>
>>18072030
Thank you, the inner voice of logic, for your responce.
From the one point - the thought of nofun eats me alive.
From the other - i can have some fun even in my shitbox so things shouldnt be as bad.
>>
>>18072059
I have a Focus SE, and while I haven't really had any other cars to compare to (aside from an Elantra while in the shop from accident), its still a fairly fun car. I can still hoon it around and put a smile on my face.
If you are that worried about fun, though, might wanna consider an ST.
>>
>>18072070
I'm too poor for an ST, but even given that amount of euros - i'd rather have a Mazda6 new 2,0 base.

Show me a better looking vehicle.

What's something good to keep in your car to throw on the windshield of people driving like total assholes? Like ones trying to run you off the road for no reason or running lights that have been red for 10 seconds.

Needs to be stable (non-rotting), require no prep other than throwing out the window, and the right density to be able to throw more than a few feet without being so heavy it breaks their windshield and kills them.

Yo. First time making a thread on here, if there's a general I should be in or something, apologies in advance.

Currently looking at cars. Undecided about whether or not to buy. Deadline is 7 AM tomorrow.

>Saw a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer.
>129K mileage, nice modern radio/DVD plaver installed, good room in the back, comes with four snow tires.
>$2500

>Gas pedal is hard to find and it's awkwardly tucked away in the corner. Worried if this will cause problems when at a green light or when I need to speed out onto the road during heavy traffic.
>Felt awkward in the drivers seat in general.

My dad says I should get it, but when I called my mom, she said no and to keep looking. That's how I feel, too.

Anything I should know about 2004 Trailblazers? Any dirty laundry on them before I slap down $25K?
>>
>>18071003
I've never had an issue with finding the gas pedal on trailblazers/envoys when I bring them into my shop to work on them. I have pretty big steel toe work shoes too.
>>
>>18071011
Yeah, but I did both times. I'm used to driving sedans, but I don't remember having difficulty with putting my foot on the gas pedal. I should have tested it again by forwarding the seat,but I'm a tall guy, so I need to feel comfortable with a lot of leg room.

I'm not too attached to the car, so it won't be a big loss.
>>
Why would you waste 25k on a sub 10k shitbox? Even the SS version isnt worth 20k. Wait here.... Are you an Eurocuck?

I live in Kansas and there are 3 radio stations here, rock, country, and Jesus). Every fucking time I turn the radio on there is a fucking ad about some $60k truck trim package aimed at boomers. "You've worked hard all your life, now show it with the bla blabla edition fucknugget prime!"
The luxury truck is here to stay for the next decade and then will live on as the transportation of many a Mexican roofer with a poorly installed custom sound system.

So I'm pretty dead set on getting a 2013/2014 Genesis Coupe and unsure of which trim I should get.

There's two Rspecs near me, one with the 2.0t and one with the 3.8, both manual. I've heard that the 2.0t is underpowered but I plan on modding eventually, so wouldn't it be a better idea to go with a car that had a factory turbo?

First owner is 10y/100k, 2nd owner is 5y/60k or some shit.

Idk. I like the chassis and interior, that's why I want it
>>
If you *really* and *truly* plan on adding power, then yes, the 2.0t is probably the better route. Otherwise, go with the 3.8.

I like my 2014 3.8.
>>
stock 2.0t = ~240 whp

intake + catless exhaust + sfr 1.5 = ~300 whp (the difference this makes over stock is insane)

evo turbo + Evo manifold + injectors + custom tune/haltech = ~400-500 whp

trans and blocks have been taken to 500 hp reliably without upgrading the internals and over 600 with a built and stroked engine

>Lambda V6 is nice
>makes 350 horsepower yet is slower than a 300 hp mustang V6

The engine is shit on power delivery along with being coarse and unrefined. Have you driven a 3.8 genesis? A 370z and mustang make it feel like trash.

The issue with the car is that on paper, it looks great
>limited slip diff

However, none of it adds up in reality. You get a half baked car reminiscent of 2000s Hyundai

My dad worked in a UAW plant growing up and he'd always talk about the garbage they'd pump out. He worked on diesel engines and they would have ridiculous failures out in the field due to retarded workers and incompetent quality control.

Their Japanese competitors would build better machines that were cheaper, but the American brand stayed afloat thanks to large government contracts. Since then my dad's retired and they've moved all the plants down to Mexico. They make even shittier products now, but the CEO still gets the contracts and now gets to use Mexican slave labor. The price of the machines is still the same.

It is like you want to be slow...

Today I noticed a problem with my car, it’s my first car; a 2010 Renault Clio Extreme.

When I reach about 15mph, the car begins to make a thudding sound that increases in speed and rhythm the quicker I accelerate. When going around 50mph it’s no longer a thud, it’s a vibration.

It doesn’t do this when breaking.

The thudding/shaking is less noticible when accelerating

It is only when I let go of all the pedals it becomes very noticible

It’s a manual car

It appears to be from the front end, my friends think it’s the left wheel, I think it’s the right.

There is no steering problems, besides the steering feelings fairly loose/easy to turn when not moving. (The wheels do all move accordingly though and are very responsive)

I haven’t reversed fast enough to hear it, I have to reach about 15mph before I hear anything noticible, but I will give that a try

>>18069680
The sound goes away when I break and back to complete silence. Also the sound dies down when I accelerate aggressively, it’s only when I release all pedals I can hear the noise in true form
