Urus is the first V-8–powered Lambo since the Jalpa left production in 1988. But while the Jalpa’s 255-hp 3.5-liter V-8 was an independent Lamborghini design, the Urus is a product of the Volkswagen Group and leverages the assets of the massive corporation. So the Urus’s engine is a 641-hp version of the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 used in high-end Audis, some Bentleys, and the Porsche Panamera. Lamborghini vaguely claims that demon tweaks including specific cylinder heads have been applied, but the V-8 is assembled at a Volkswagen plant in Hungary and shipped to Lamborghini as a complete unit.

i was kind of sad that they decided to go with a cuckover instead of giving the rambo lambo the second chance it deserved.
If it was made at a relatively affordable price point and wasn't a total italian shitbox it could have been a legit competitor against range rover, the new g63, lx570 instead of being another bland cuckover.
First 2 letters are wrong to describe that
>relatively affordable price point and wasn't a total italian shitbox
Why do you hate the Fiat Panda you bastard?
literally a rebaged tiguan
It has a twin turbo 4 liter which puts out almost twice the HP @ 641.

Anyone out this side of the woods willing to be useful tonight and share some sauce for manuals. VW golf 3 to be specific
and i'm still looking for this saxo haynes manual
I don't think you need to read a haynes to take the mentioned cars to where they belong - to the scrapyard. Just hook them by any of their towing places put on a trailer and take away to be scrapped. Simple.

There is no need to make vehicles every single year.
It is wasteful.

Resources are limited. There are over 300 million vehicles on the road in the US and over a billion that could work that are sitting idly by, rotting away.

Buying a new vehicle is perhaps one of the worst things for the enviroment. It doesn't matter if it is a Tesla or what.
The only reason people do it is for status. Reusing a fuel inefficient hummer is better for the enviroment than buying a new fuel efficient vehicle.

Unless you have a valid need, say a work truck for a business, you should not be allowed to purchase a new vehicle.
There should be a moratorium on the manufacture of vehicles, a furlough, limiting manufacturing to only a few basic models every few years. Say a 2020 or 2025 model rather than this yearly shenanigans.

Meat still has a higher energy density so a whole cow goes a long way. The other parts of the animal also get used to make the seats in your Tesla and the feed in your cat food. Just calculate how much land you'd need to just feed yourself on a vegetarian diet. Now do you think that's really viable for the rest of the planet or even just North America?

I drive a old 4banger shitbox which technically makes me more "green" than some faggot yuppie that gets a new Tesla or luxury hybrid every 2 years.
Sounds like a good way to fuck the used car market
Some people view freedom has having access to cars cheaply and anywhere. Other people view freedom has having alternatives to the car for getting around.

This series actually seems pretty good. I think I'll give it a watch.

How do you get a license plate for a car when you buy off a private buyer? Can I buy it beforehand without the title? This is driving me crazy because I can't find an answer. I live in ny if that matters

>How do you get a license plate for a car when you buy off a private buyer? Can I buy it beforehand without the title? This is driving me crazy because I can't find an answer. I live in ny if that matters
this is true
this is false
The law here says I can drive a vehicle home from the purchase without a current registration.
Last time I did that, I got pulled over 2x in 120 miles, state trooper and county mountie, showed them my license, handwritten dated receipt, pointed to my wife who pulled over ahead of us, and proceeded home.
Just attach a registered plate from another vehicle and drive it uninsured and unregistered
Good idea, you should also hang a pistol from the rearview mirror and throw some "back off" Yosamite Sam mud flaps on there.
>Your first stop after the purchase should be the DMV.
Depending on where you live you can be more or less lax. I bought a car in Chicago, drove it down to St Louis, and drove it for a week before I got any sort of tags on it and had no trouble with it. Probably don’t do that, but don’t freak out if you get your car on a Friday and have to wait through the weekend for the DMV to open or something.

How bad for the clutch is it to use the biting point as a brake? I've been doing it for around 2 months now on my first car as my commute has a lot of stop and start traffic on inclines, and it's easier than using the handbrake over and over, but my friend just told me it can fuck your clutch.
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
should say, this holds true for all stops, not just on hills. Your driving instructor should have told you all this shit though.
I was gonna say do I still use footbrake on hills or always handbrake.

He probably did, but I passed almost 4 years ago, and I've just got my first car and a job which is an hours drive away, so it's like learning all over again.

Nice one for the advice though.

I've done this for years and never needed a clutch replacement.
R&r of most transmissions cost on the order of $900-$1000 in labor alone. Brake jobs usually cost less than 200 and don't require expensive tools.

Do you want to pay that grand in a few months or several years from now?
You must enjoy driving with a glazed clutch.

What is this? The latest CR-V?
t. Drive a 2,2L 2004
The full sized SUV's have/had decent room in the back row. Some modern minivans do but you have no cargo room with the 3rd row up.
No, it isn't Justin. Only a true minivan's 3rd row seats are the best. A 3rd row in a crossover is just a marketing scheme.
People usually don't use these with seven adults anyway. The third row is meant for minors in families with four or five children, or for carrying your children's friends every now and then.
My father recently started looking at buying a "fullsize crossover" and is currently considering a Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot.
I honestly have no idea why. He lives by himself. He never has more than 1 passenger in his car.

How do I talk him out of it?

Sup /o/

Need some help, for the past week or so when ever I'm in boost/on the throttle there's a high pitched whistling noise coming from the car. My airbox lid was jacked up so I thought it was that at first, but after replacing I still have the noise. I've tightened every hose clamp I can find (including all the intake piping and intercooler piping), I even ripped out and plugged the sound symposer (p.o.s.), still have the sound.

At this point I'm suspecting it may be a leaky wastegate or maybe a leaky waste gate actuator. I'm holding good boost still (25+ PSI consistently), no negative corrections, and AFR is 11+. It's driving me nuts. I can't pinpoint exactly where the sound is coming from, and it also doesn't make the noise while in neutral.

Diagnose my issue please /o/!
Is that a turbo with a supercharger?! Damn

How reliable is an electronic emergency brake?

Post your scopes with a socket on top then. Surely you got one when they're only $80.
All cars with electronic parking brakes should also have features to engage and disengage them automatically. Might as well have the extra convenience.
I can confirm in the Volt, it works like an emergency brake if you hold it.
I pull mine to hard
it broke a few months ago and i haven't bothered to fix it

IIRC manual suggested having front tire pressures around 16 psi to mitigate this.
