The Great Turbo Yaris Depression

If Bilstein could ever get this shit together I'd use this whole episode as an excuse to get this - https://www.ajusa.com/shop-by-brand/bilstein-b12-pro-kit-suspension-kit-46-220318.html This looks like a good price for all of that. Definitely. Unfortunately that B12 kit has been backordered for MO...

2020 Supra-Why I think it is half assed.

Actually now that I think about it. This isn't the first time Toyota did this. What about the gt86/frs a toyota that used a Subaru engine, but then again Subaru has the same model. Also while I agree that it needs to be stepped up. The BMW engine vs the previous Supra engine has one thing in common...

2020 Supra-Why I think it is half assed.

But still for it's time, it was a pretty stellar car, even though I partly agree. It was an overweight GT car. It was only made stellar by tuna lovers figuring out how stout that legendary lump of iron under the hood truly was - and Toretto's fanbois. :dat: Not that I've ever driven any of them, bu...

Car talk tré: Carpocalypse Now!

That ZF 8-speed is a pretty versatile tranny. Oh, totally. It's just interesting to see how much crap GM gets for offering a slush box in the Corvette, yet Toyota can do it with the ZOMG Supra and it's all amazing. To be fair (I think), that particular trans in the Corvette gets shit on because shi...

If I walked up to you and said "I want that car, motherfucker, how much?" What is your answer?
$14000 takes it as-is.

Whelp. I had an appointment at the dealership this morning to have the passenger side end link swapped out on their dime, and this time it was actually installed properly. The little clinks and clangs I was hearing are gone, so that's a positive. I'd heard a bit of squealing from the front brakes ov...

Re: Car talk tré: Carpocalypse Now!

In high school a friend of mine who worked with me at the supermarket bought a brand new car. She was a bit older than me. It was a Daewoo Lasagna, you know the one they were giving away 2 for 1 because they were so shitty? Anyways, she told me that her engine was making funny noises, I asked how m...

$18k opens up a lot of opportunities.

C6 Corvettes, E46 M3's, NC Miatas (maybe even some ND), FurzBurz, and on and on.
I get it, I'm :wrong:.

Why not just buy the same year Miata for less than half the price? S2K's make zero sense.
I like what I like? Only Miata that really interests me is a ND2, so ~$30k for a base Club.

Re: Home chat 1.0

We generally pay roughly 1.1% on the assessed value of the property. Fuck. That might be the cheapest in the country combined with the lack of assessments keeping up with real market value... No wonder everyone wants to own CA property. Don't sell it Max, rent it out. That's all of Indiana. Constit...

Kamry XSE impressions and further updates

My advice is to truly just give up on cars as a fun hobby or thing. Get a straight up appliance automatic Jap car that can get beat to absolute shit and you won't care (if you need a car at all that is). Living in a city can be fun and a good thing, but it can also drive you absolutely insane if yo...

Right. 0% until you sell. Makes no sense if you're in a place you're happy with. Might as well just stay put. I mean really it's a 0% return on equity regardless. If you buy a $200k home and sell it for $250k, you walk with that $50k regardless of whether you put $0 down or $40k down. We love the p...

Fingers crossed you're right. Don't know how you can go wrong. Economy is on the verge of recession, interest rates increasing, consumer sentiment is sure to drop, property values are going to weaken. Doubt they'll tank, but it's a great time to rent something if you already cashed out. See where t...
