Thanks!

I think that the second photo is his favorite too. He liked it so much he is going to use it in his portfolio. I also admired it alot, so i decided to get it printed as a 20"x30" poster; i printed two and gave one to him for helping me.

Lets see. FlowTech Afterburner w/ dual outlet. Euro tail lights...not Altezza...100% clear/chrome, no red dot. Bed rails and Kenwood MP-628. Had a smoked tag cover, but po pos didn't like that. Goin to court next month to contest the $105 ticket for it though...should have been just a fix it. Next thing is cold air intake, and the I will get 2 15" subs with amps, projector headlights, ground effects, blackout windows, maybe lower it, debadge and paint it next summer, and bigger rims...maybe 20" Sorry for bad quality, only have camera phone

I've always wondered, in your wierd cars [the ones where you drive on the wrong side], where is the turn signal, column shift/windshield wiper controls. Are the same as they are here in the U.S.? What order are the pedals from left to right?

We pretty much never have column shift gears so that's not a problem (even automatics tend to have the controls where you'd expect the stick for a manual box). Indicators (what you would call turn signals) tend to be on the left stalk, wiper controls tend to be on the right stalk. Pedals are unchanged.

What about the gear pattern on manual cars? Is first gear to the right or to the left?

I think you get used to it very quickly. It takes me 2-3 shifts to get used to doing it the other way round when I drive a LHD car (on holiday). 6 gears (and reverse being in a strange place) takes a bit longer, although I'm used to it now my own car has 6 gears.

Does any one ever use the tipronic/steptronic/automanual transmission thing when you drive you car.

I rarely do. Its nothing like driving a standard. No clutch, you don't have to take you foot of the gas, it won't let you redline, and it will auto downshift.

The only time I use it is occasionally for highway passing. If I shift down before I pass its faster, smoother, and more fun. :)

The TL has it, but i haven't used it ... it's doesn't seem right, but i could see where i would want that immediate downshift (passing). It doesn't allow you to use it till its shifts into 2nd. It's nice to have the option though. The auto tranny shifts quite nice. i went to pass on the freeway yesterday ... 60-100mph with no problems; quik and smoooooooth. :D

My car has StepTronic and its nothing like a manual but it can be fun.

I use it for burn-outs because it locks the torque converter, I can get some wheelspin that way. Having a torque converter locked in 1st gear while driving around residential areas without traction control while keeping the engine in the 5,000-6,500rpm range is quite fun. The car reacts to any input very violently (as in, it makes your neck hurt after a while), its awesome.

I've never used it for passing, I simply use the kick-down switch for that.

The StepTronic manual mode is most effective when traction control is disabled, once again because the torque converter is locked. Drifts and powerslides happen naturally.

Normally there is annoying lag during shifting but I've found that if I lift my foot off the throttle just enough, the shift will happen very quickly and smoothly. Same goes for downshifting. If I downshift without giving the engine any power, the car will jerk forward, the tires will screech and the car will begin engine braking. If I give the engine too much gas when I downshift, the car will jerk backward as if it was getting ready to catch some speed as the engine revs to 5K or so. If I give the engine the perfect amount of power while downshifting and get the timing right I can make the car downshift like a manual with a nice throttle blip. Its great. :D

I want my next car to have SMG, but for now StepTronic does the job.

My Rover has an adaptive automatic transmission with the automanual and sport settings. The adaptive transmission is supposed to adapt to your driving style to shift at better times. I haven't really noticed any difference in the shift patterns though. The sport mode is fun too for accelerating because it shift the when the engine gets to a higher RPM than normal.

I do like the automanual for the highway passing especially in an SUV. It makes it faster and smoother.

My 2001 Rangey has the coolest shifter ever. Its called an H-Shifter. One side is 4WD High and the other is 4WD low (its always in 4WD). When driving it up a steep slippery hill in the winter is so awesome. Just stop the car, throw it into neutral, listen for two beeps, shift it over into Low Mode and select gears any of the 4 gears.

Bah. That auto stick [Chrysler terminology] or whatever you call it is a waste. It's an auto....theres not much fun to be had with one of them. I wanted a stick....and was going to get one, but that dealer packed up and left and I was stuck with an automatic. 1 2 3 D is good enough, you can't really shift up [other than from 3 to 4 going into D if it feels necessary], but you can downshift. Just make sure you don't go 1 too far and hit 1 while goin like 40....they don't tend to like that... ;)

I think the roadster one is pretty good looking, but I hate the little box thing. It looks like a Scion xB or whatever it is called, another refrigerator on wheels if you ask me. Okay that was slightly harsh, the Smart looks better than the Scion by a lot, but I still don't care for it.

That v6 roadster though, Brabus, would be quite fun for many a reason and the economy should be pretty sweet too :D

Those Smart cars are way too pricey, though. They all are for what you're getting.

Another car you guys won't be getting --- Hyundai Getz. Blast those Accents or whatever you get in Canada and the US right now. When are they gonna get the upgrade? Even 5 adults can fit into my car. That's not to say that my engine is powerful enough to go fast with 5 adults. ;) Also, the UK version of the Getz isn't as good as the Aussie version.

It only comes fully loaded, although ABS (which you don't really need where I live in Australia) and alloy wheels are optional. Everything else is included, even for the lowest model. And after paying all fees and taxes, I paid AUD $16700, CDN $14900, EURO 10500, £7100, USD $12700.

Oh, and I luv my car b/c its purrfect, LOLZ!!1!on!e!!

- Fidanza aluminum flywheel
- Injen cold air intake

This is pretty much how it looks now:

OHHH Range Rovers, my personal favorites. Nice 20" wheels on the both of them. I hate that orange they have though, quite ugly and eye attracting IMO. The RR sport is supercharged i see. Bentley is nice too, but I like the flying spur version more.

That must be, $350,000 worth of cars! With all that money spent on cars does he have a garage to put them in (just noticed they were outside)

what does he do?

Yeah they are pretty cool :) As far as i am aware the Bentley cost his £160,000 thats $280,000!!! as for the RR im not too sure. Garages?? HAHA he has 3 on the main house and another 3 further down the driveway. The ones down the driveway has my cousins appartment built on it where she lives (she is 15).

Well my uncle owns a telecom company which is based up north. It is pretty successful....too bad he hasnt bought me the best Mac or a Bentley :(

Well it was get this or I can have a huge party when I turn 16 (not like the winey people MTV type 16 but still big) So I choose a nice GT over a huge party. It is VERY fast and I have driven it a couple of times....not legally though and my parents really don't car if it do, but I can't go very far. It has a stick shift so it is once of the most fun cars you will ever drive.

Mine is the Black VW GTI.

It has a 2.0L 16v from a 90 Jetta, with a chip, and performance exhaust. It was able to pull a 14.3 in the 1/4 mile, and gets ~32MPG when driven lightly. Nothing like it for fun power to weight ratio, old school looks, and good fuel economy!

My Scirocco S taken the week before I picked it up. This is a project car, and is awaiting a paint job. It was really fun to drive back from the Chicago area, and got 38 MPG! I am going to keep it mostly stock, and just lower it to European spec suspension hight, and slowly buy european spec parts for it.

I have the same feeling towards dodge, mostly because of the POS car we had that never run. My parents are really picky about how there cars look and run, but the A/C and power windows stopped working in it. We did get dodge to pay for some of of the repairs but that car was a total POS.

Kids are spoilt at all levels, not just the ones that get the expensive stuff. A kid can be given a cheap used car and if he doesn't appreciate it, simply takes it for granted and does not even say "Thanks", he is spoiled. Another kid could be given a $40,000 car but if he appreciates it and knows its value he is not spoiled.

Before i graduated high-school my dad pretty much just gave a 71 Chevelle he bought at an auction (my dad is not rich; he makes just enough to be, mostly, comfortable). I could have appreciated it more, but i still love that car (i have been putting off selling it for almost two years now :rolleyes: ) ... lots of memories with that car. It all depends on the kid — most young kids are somewhat bratty at that age anyways — some just handle it better.

I wish my dad made me do a little more for that car; then again, i wish he made me work a little harder for everything else too ... :o ... maybe i would have appreciated it more; who knows?

I know i like a nice car. :cool: ... just wish they'd run off of organics. :mad:

This is my third Acura hatchback. I really like the sportiness of this car, the way it handles, the nimbleness of it, the ease of parking and the convenience of the hatchback when I've got a load of stuff to carry. You can stuff quite a lot into this car when you drop down both the rear seats. As a one-person or maybe two-person car, it's great, but when time comes to carry more than one other person in it, things do get a little cramped. It's a fun little car and not exorbitantly priced, making it reasonably affordable for many people. Because of the Acura name, there is a misperception that this is an expensive vehicle, but in reality it's the leas costly model of all their offerings.

This is the automatic drive version, rather than the RSX-S model; I have driven stick shift Hondas in the past but the urban area where I live is so crowded and congested with traffic signals at every block that driving around here and having to frequently clutch-and-shift would be a royal pain. If I'd been out in the country I would've opted for an orange RSX-S.

I love my new electric blue girl! It's fun having a brand-new car after all these years.

Yeah i see your point...mabey i was abit harsh.....who know?? crap day mabey..

But yeah i guess i was slightly out of line for saying that but i still think that there is a certain point where that is beyond spoilt.

Yes I do, Ford is barely related to Land Rover. If they were closely related, my car wouldn't have been in the shop last week because the trunk lock was stuck. If Ford was really involved with Land Rover, there reliability would be much higher. Right now I think Land Rover has the lowest reliability of any consumer level car.

In 2000 Ford bought Land Rover. All I have seen from that is higher prices and for 2006 they are using Jaguar (also owned by ford) engines. In the early 90's a range rover cost in the mid $40,000s, in the mid to late 90's they cost around $60,000, then they jumped to $70,000, then to $80,000 and now they have an 89,000 supercharged version. Not to say there haven't been some special editions such as the Linley edition which cost around $150,000 (under 10 made). In the late 1960s/early 70's you could buy a land rover for under $2500. Hahah, of course Land Rovers were a little different then than they are now and things cost more now.

Although I decided a long time ago I did not like the LR3/Discovery 3 and the Range Rover Sport, they are both starting to slowly grow on me.

GMC all the way. Dodge's will last about 5 years, Fords are just...ehhh (although the built in trailer brake controller in the F-350 is pretty cool), and chevy now has that horrendous grill on the front of their trucks.

And of course, last but not the least (however the hardest to see ;) is the Apple logo. You can barely make it out in the lower centre of the back window. Also a RIT sticker on the upper right. I've since then added a larger RIT sticker upper centre of the back window.

Hah nice. Have you been to RIT since then? They've had lots of changes. New CS building, new Field House, and theyre building new buildings all over. Expanding like crazy. I'm not sure if I like it or not, but the only real reason why I'm going to RIT is because I'm deaf and they have good deaf support. I don't go to NTID, I just go to regular RIT classes. I've seen NTID classes... I definitely don't fit in those.

Actually it is a Scion, a division of Toyota Motor Company

It cost 1/3 of what your car cost.
If you own a 45,000 car. 14500 base for this car is WAY too high.

The interior was designed by Lexus.
I really wonder about that one but I cannot dispute it. Are you saying this because Lexus is another division of Toyota???
It has more passenger room than the Volvo S60.
It should, it's 20% taller. Yes it will seat 4 people comfortably, and 5 if you sardine them in. The Volvo S60 seats 4 comfortably, but it does it in style.
Best of all... it gets 34 MPG.
And the Volvo gets 30 MPG. 2 key points about this.
1: The Scion gets 103 Horsepower at 6000 RPM The Volvo however gets 208 horsepower at 5000 RPM.
2: It does it in STYLE..

The one thing you did not mention was the safety ratings.. I do not know the ratings for the Scion but I can guess that the ratings for the Volvo are much better.
.
All that being said, I am not really a big fan of Volvo. I just really hate when people jump on a high horse about a car.. It is a CAR. And a god ugly one at that...

I agree that the Volvo S60 horse is not that high, but it is still a horse and not the stunted growth donkey that is the Scion XB.

All I was saying is that when it comes to the 'bang for buck' ratio, find me a car with better fit and finish under 20K.

All of the parts inside the Pontiac Vibe say toyota as well, Does that make it a toyota? No it's a Pontiac. Lexus automobiles are made with Toyota parts, Does that make them Toyotas? No they are Lexuses...That being said The Scion is a Scion not a Toyota

All I was saying is that when it comes to the 'bang for buck' ratio, find me a car with better fit and finish under 20K.
To me both the Tc and the Xa are much better cars. My personal fav in the value wagon line would be the Toyota Matrix for just a little more than the XB . As far as good value cars for under 20K you are right, they are few and far between, and the Scion line is one of the better lines.

You say the Volvo has style....That is YOUR Style, not mine. The xB is a Love it or screw off car which means: I love it, SO SCREW OFF.
I am feeling the love, really I am.:) Actually I am not a big fan of the Volvo and as I stated in an earlier post I was out of line. Just had the spat with the SO and was out of sorts.. I apologize

Read Five reviews for the xB, and then Five reviews for a Volvo...trust me, the xB will fare much better...oh...and you just jumped on a high horse about yourself, and your hate for the xB...Which makes you a hypocrite.

I did read the reviews and from what I can tell it is the under 28 crowd who are the big fans of the Xb. Seeing as how I am 40 I can see how I do not fit the target age group. I apologize once again, maybe I am an old fart but I just don't like it. JMHO...

I can see what you mean, and this is a very controversial topic, but in all reality being that Oil is in its currently price I don't fell it right people ought to be wasteful and cause others hardship because of their waste. I mean some people are working at minimum wage and its $5.15 in Indiana so at say only $10 of gas a week, that all adds up... And to be honest what good (besides Ego Boosting, and the occasional use) would such a vehicle do for the normal American, I am not proposing we limit them in a way, but I feel they should just be a bit more respectfully to the less fortunate. Gas will probably never be cheap ($0.90-$1.50 per Gallon). Also that is MORE pollution, and its all for waste. This is just my two cents...

Not really, because the police are almost always chasing from behind. And if they weren't chasing but had a front view, a rear view is usually soon to follow. Not to mention that most chases result AFTER the police have either followed the driver (and gotten their plate number), or pulled the driver over (and gotten their plate number). We don't have too many Mad Max drivers over here so it isn't really a problem not to have front plates.

I like Scions, they are made by Toyota. Often, they are sold at Toyota dealerships, right alongside other Toyota products. The engines in a Scion are shared with other Toyota models.

The whole Scion lineup is pretty stylish, obviously not for everyone, but the line has been an overwhelming success.

From a practical point of view, the Scion line does exactly what they were designed to do, and meet the needs of those they were designed for. Not only that, but they do it very well, with a high level of quality.

I can understand not liking them, they may not suit your taste, but it's just rude to berate people who do have one.

Nissan is going to introduce the Cube to the US market pretty soon, a whole lineup to compete with Scion in fact.

(She was overly paranoid after the accident, and went for the largest vehicle she could afford.) The 1999 Hyundai Accent L I bought with cash in 1999 when I got hired at Intel. (It was the cheapest new car money could buy, and I paid for it with only one month's 'spare' pay.) And our new baby, our 2004 Toyota Prius. We got that when my wife was pregnant, because neither of the other two were particularly safe, in reality. (Regardless of being large, the '94 Explorer really isn't that safe.)

I'm on my PowerBook now, but when I get back on the big Mac, I'll post pics.

I'll also find the 'before and after' pics of my ill-fated Ford Escort GT I had in college. (That was truly a frightening car. El cheapo American car frame with overly powerful Japanese engine. I should have known it would be trouble.)

Wow man I am officially jealous. I have a 1990 celica GT-S and I love it. Only has <90k miles. I want to do a 3S-GTE engine swap so my car can have 230ish hp. Thats alot of power for a fwd 2800lb car. As of right now it has about 130hp and can keep up with most cars I see in daily driving. Haha would you be willing to sell your hood on your GT-4

I have a 2000 GT-S. :) 180hp (dynos prove toyota underrated the HP and it is actually around 190hp) at around 2600lbs. But I think the main difference is I have almost 100k miles on it and my car is falling apart. :o They just don't make celicas like they used to (in terms of long term reliability).

OK, back to the Scion real quick. My brother in law and I got into an argument last night about this car. I am asking someone who owns one. For insurance purposes is this car classified as an SUV or a Wagon. I have searched the web and some call it an SUV, some a wagon, and I have even seen some say it is a mini van???

Old school - Datsun 510 (1600) Turbo

I love the 510! I want one for rallying :)

I'd place a bet that a scion will outlast a subaru in long term ownership. As far as quality goes, The interior of the WRX is just as cheap as the scion lineup.

You must not know much about Subarus. Subarus are known for there long life spans. I know tons of people who drive beat up old Subies from the 70s and 80s with hundreds of thousands of miles on them. They just keep running. And sure the WRX interior isn't that spiffy (well the newer ones are actually better now, but the exterior looks horrendous), but it beats the Scions in performance (though it costs a lot more). I don't think there's really any competition between the two. If you can afford a WRX you'd be stupid to get a Scion, and if you can't afford a WRX you'd be stupid to get a WRX.

I always thought these types of comparison were dumb (no offense). People tend to think that comparing a car/truck to an aircraft makes it look better, but I cannot figure out why.

It reminds me of a video of a motorcycle and a jet taking off from a standstill to see which one is fastest. Why does anyone care how fast a jet can do 0-60?

If it were a real comparison, let's see how the car compares in the long haul, say over 1000nm, and compare the times. Or let's see how each one does in warfare and compare the results. ;) How many people are comparing a car to a jet for a purchase decision anyway?

I don't think that show was comparing those two pieces of transportation on accordance of speed, but more of the maneuverability.

But, yes i do agree with you. I just thought it was kind of suprising that they compared a multi-million dollar attack helicopter to a mer $30,000+ sport compact race car.

Oh I know that video was comparing maneuverability. However, I've seen other videos comparing a car's speed to an aircraft, starting from a complete stop.

But would anyone really think that a military helicopter is supposed to be really tight in the corners? ;) I mean, all aircraft aren't as quick in the corners as a car. They are not designed to be that way.

They might as well make a video comparing the cornering of a bicycle to a car. Since the bike can make a much tighter corner, it must be better. :)

fuel economy, narrow roads and streets, more expensive petrol, there's loads of reasons.

i'd much rather have a mustang here than most of these smaller cars, like the puma, fiesta, civic, etc, but because of the left hand drive / fuel economy thing, it'd be stupid.

so, i've got a nice little car that'll return 30 miles to the gallon motorway cruising, while being nice and nippy - under 5 seconds 0-60mph. - it's had some serious under cover work done to it. i love that it looks completely standard, but basically that's because the only really original parts are the body panels... 2.5 V6, 190bhp? it's been tinkered to: 2.8 V6, 375bhp+, lightened & strengthened chassais, huge air filters, direct exhaust, etc etc. i spent £2000 on new brakes in december, when it proved that the rather large brakes there already couldn't stop the beast too easily - and were almost at melting point. ok that was from high speeds, but who tunes an engine to nearly 400bhp to wander down a road slowly?

according to a few reports, the engine can be tuned to beyond 550bhp - i can't wait to see what that brings :D

it goes like ***** off a shovel - i can outrun almost anything else on the roads in this baby.

there's a few pics here (http://www.failedsuicide.com/car/).

not bad for an eleven year old car!
