Twin Turbos are usually too expensive for what they offer. Cool looking cars though. Too bad most of them have t-tops. Those are the worst part of 80's and 90's sports cars.

For a decent turbo, you're looking at clean US E36 M3 money, and the m3 is a lot better handling car, no t-tops, less divisive styling...

why are pre-2000 volvos so fucking cheap? (in yurop at least)

I want to buy one but I don't know if they're ticking time bombs. red-pill me on them

Even Ford Volvos?
>>
>>19301315
I've read the thread but still have a question for all those knowledgeable.
I almost exclusively like cheap, unique "shitboxes" that may be most peoples idea of a beater, that will run all the way through the apocalypse. Volvos have always appealed to me immensely but I've never bought one because I'm not sure how good of an idea a cheap volvo is. All I want to avoid like the plague with any car is having to tear down engine or transmission due to catastrophic failure. Nearly anything else is okay for me.
Are Volvos for me /o/? Asking about any model from the 70s through 90s.

>>19308479
yes. they're just as expensive and even less reliable.

Make sure you check the steering for play, new steering racks can be expensive. Make sure you have a long drive and get it warm, then work through the gears to see if there's any fuckery from the synchros. You should also work through the gears when the car is cold and not started. The m90 box is very hardy, but the weak point is the third gear synchromesh. People generally don't understand that you don't slap your hand on it and just push down on the lever like the back of your girlfriend's head when she sucks you off. That's the sole weak spot. If you get problems with getting third gear into the slot, you might be looking at either a rebuild or a new gearbox. Also ask when the oil got changed in the diff and gearbox, check the spark leads for integrity. Plenty of volvos still have the factory ones on and you'll want to change them out asap.
Try and listen if there's any rumbling from the driveshaft, that might mean it needs to get new u-joints or the rubber spacers got worn. (I can't remember what they're called in english.) Other than that, it's pretty much the same as with buying any other old car.

You did not get a factory new Leon in sport trim at base price for EUR20k as was the original goalpost, bucko.

If we start talking about special offers and buying up outgoing models (like you can do with the Focus now, and get warehouse models from 30% less than they were just a year ago), we'll arrive at rather interesting prices.

If you compare cars bought at standard price in a single country, VAG is always more expensive for an equivalent engine choice than the competition, and is known to be less reliable and have more manufacturing defects. Here in Austria, you won't even get a baseline Octavia for 20k. I'm aware that Eastern Europe has lower prices, but to put it lightly, the market there is not as demanding, and you can gut the trim to lower the price for those weaker markets. Even then, the absolute price levels will fluctuate, but the VAG will always be relatively more expensive for the same size, displacement, and trim. And it will be a VAG product - although Suzuki Swifts and used VAGs are notoriously popular in Hungary for whatever reason, even if their owners confess to their shitboxes having embarrassing faults.
>>
>>19307756
Ahaha, I bought the car with 3km on the clock in 2016, so stick your outgoing model argument up your ass. Yes, an FR showroom model with added 18inch rims, paint, winter and sound pack, full LED lights, so all in all at least 3K worth of extras on the house. All that with an engine option not even available in Austria (1.8TSI). Even with €1400 NoVa, it was well under the price of what I would have to pay here, yes, Im also in Austria. So keep crying, bitch nigga. If you dont buy a fully loaded showroom model, and are actually waiting half a year to overpay, you are shooting yourself in the foot.

>how come skoda are literally vag but are superior in terms of reliablity according to multiple surveys? i thought all vag things are based on the base engines and parts?
People buy VWs and don't service them and romp on them all day long.
Similarly, Lexus cars are reliable because owners take them to get serviced at the dealership when the light comes on. The average buyer of more mainstream brands doesn't.

Can't say I know what it would cost to import one. May need to find a good home for my Scorpion soon as I've been gifted a '75 Toyota Crown from my late dad so depending on how the chassis rust inspection goes, I may need to choose which one to build and sell the other...
>>
>>19309217
I don't really have the money to import one right now. I have 4k saved up, the conquest has been broken for a while, and I'll be starting college in August. Kinda want to fix the Conquest and sell it and get something cool, like a ST165 or a GVR4. I do like driving the Conquest, fun car.

Good choices, I'd go with the celica if I could find a good one. Keep the Conquest if possible, a classic car has a special feel to it

Are you sure the cars in AC and real life were set up the same? Most road cars are set up to be on the understeery side out of the factory because it's more predictable so I'd be surprised if they didn't feel a bit heavy.

Can somebody explain what the point of SUVs are? The majority of them literally look like sedans that have been stretched upwards in autoCAD and don't really provide much advantages over a sedan besides height.

Once I sort out the top end on it, have to do the valve cover gaskets, and I'll probably put my headers on and ported intake manifold while I got it all apart, but it's a riot in the twisties. The Mazda V6 open headers sounds like an old 60's Grand Prix car.

Pic related was after 3 days of owning it and all the shit I had to fix on it, timing belt, water pump, AC lines, I will never buy another white car ever again, it's a good thing I'm painting this one when I'm done.
