I bought a new (new to me) car last week. Finally came in to the dealership today, and I'm hoping to have it delivered and get some pictures of it next week sometime.

2002 Honda Accord V6 EX Sedan. It's pretty nice, I'm getting excited. I'm wondering where a good place to stick the Apple sticker will be. Any ideas?

I don't buy it. Your youtube profile (http://www3.youtube.com/profile?user=xblroyal) says you're 20 years old and you live in the USA. That ferrari is right hand drive, with UK plates. So there's problem #1. #2 any Ferrari owner knows that a F430 Spyder is a soft-top by definition. #3 if you could afford an F430 you'd be using at least a 2.0Ghz MacBook or a MacBook Pro.

Finding your youtube (or any other) profile took all of about 20 seconds. It was the first thing that came up in Google :D

I find it mildly amusing how you're getting all defensive and trying to portray me as some kind of weirdo, whilst YOU are the one that was trying to boast about your imaginary ferrari ownership and failed miserably :rolleyes:

Ferrari Enzo; I'd post my other cars too but I'd like to remain as modest as possible. I realize she needs a carwash, but I just haven't had time. Handling is great, but gas mileage could be better. Thinking of trading her in for a Smart Car in the spring...

EDIT: Incase you're wondering, my garage has a hardwood floor and I had a giant apple keyboard & mouse constructed for decoration. Really.

And why would you do all that crap over a Ferrari, someone has to buy them, their not that rare where I live. Just accept the fact I'm attending John's Hopkins Medical University (best in the world mind you) for my 2nd year and I'll probably get a Ferarri when I become 40.

You are in the right state to shop. I found many fine vettes in Texas when I was looking. If you buy new, then no worries. If you do get a used one, look for someone who did not have it as their primary vehicle and drove it in the rain, gravel, etc. I bought this from a Dr in Florida who drove it from his home's garage to the garage at his medical building.

I live in the Seattle area. So, the car never leaves the garage in the winter, or any wet day. I will drop the insurance in November. Then I will disassemble quite a bit of it, clean, refurbish, touch-up everything and get it ready for next year. In 20 years, I want to sell, or give it to someone who will take the same care of it.

Right now I am looking for a white 1973 Merdcedes 280SEL sedan and a 1959-1963 Porche Speedster.

Thanks! You can see more pics of it here:

2002 Elantra GT (http://usera.imagecave.com/FadeToBlack/Elantra/)

But yeah, the Accents are also nice cars. I swear, I'm blown away by the quality of my Elantra. Everything just feels perfect, all the controls, etc. I keep noticing more cool stuff. The Elantra GT (not sure about the other models) even has a central locking system where instead of having a power locks button, you just push the regular lock button and it locks and unlocks all of the doors. That's something that you'd expect to see in a really expensive car like a Mercedes or BMW and it's just really cool.

I have a 2004 Tiburon, my mom's got a 2004 Sonata and my sister has a 2005 Elantra and we all love our cars. I don't care what people say, they're excellent cars. Across all 3 cars, the only problem we've had was the power window motor in my Tib took a crap and a quick trip to the dealer got that fixed under warranty

That's awesome. Glad to hear it. My friend has a 2000 or so Elantra wagon and it has 128k on it with no problems, other than normal wear and tear.

I love my car! It's BY FAR the nicest car I've ever had. If something happens to this one, I plan on buying another Hyundai!

Here's a new pic I took of my car yesterday:

How in the world did that come into your life?

Judging by reflections on the glass. I think that came into their life by discovering the picture on the web, or walking by it with a camera while not in Canada.

I am not even 50% sure, but the reflection in the window appears to be in Russian or some kind of Slavic language. :confused:

I could be 100% wrong though!

The Elantra GT (not sure about the other models) even has a central locking system where instead of having a power locks button, you just push the regular lock button and it locks and unlocks all of the doors. That's something that you'd expect to see in a really expensive car like a Mercedes or BMW and it's just really cool.

You don't need an expensive german car for that :) . My 90 VW Jetta GLI had that function as well. They made that standard equipment on every US VW Passat in 1990, and the Golf / Jetta in 1993 (It was standard earlier on the GLI , GTI 16v models).

THe central locks also locked and unlocked the trunk, and the gas door pneumatically. VW did away with their central locking system when they switched to all electronic with the B5 Passat, and MK4 Jetta / Golf / GTI. I still like the old system better!

That's one slick Saturn.

I think it'd be one hell of a slick saturn if you de-badged it, removed the chrome trim, replaced the wood-grain inside with brushed aluminum, and it had a) manual transmission, or b) paddle shifters.

Yet, it is still a very desirable car, especially from an American manufacturer.

Thanks. The XE has a 4 speed auto, but the one I have which is the higher end XR has a 6 speed with paddle shifters. Look on the steering wheel and you will see the buttons that upshift and downshift in manumatic mode. And there is no way I am debadging it!

I thought it might have had paddle shifters after I posted that and was going through your pictures and saw the 'M' on the shifter. I love the colour of the leather, it looks sharp. I'm sticking with the de-badging however. I just find the Saturn logo so uninspiring.

Hmm.... you guys still have the last generation Vectra. The Aura is based on the current generation of the Opel Vectra. You guys have the current Astra though which will become the Saturn Astra( name is unconfirmed, just be clear that it is the Ion replacement). You also have the Antara as well( Captiva is the name Holden gave it). The Antara will become our Saturn Vue in '08 MY. So technically you have Saturns. Just under the Holden name. :p

I'll be honest, I don't really see the appeal of paddle shifters when coupled with a traditional automatic.

If you're going to go that far, why not just get the stick (provided it's available with the car that you're buying.)

Yeah, good point mate. I didn't realise it's based on the Vectra. That's an awesome platform. Are they gonna do an AWD one anytime soon? That could be fun.

I'm only just starting to see Captivas/Antaras on the roads now. They're quite handsome.

Epsilon I( name of the platform) isn't AWD capable. But, Epsilon II will be. EPII will be out in 2010. Still that is weird. You have all the latest Opels, but the Vectra.

The Vectra's been a bit of a flop here. That segment is just so well catered for, especially with the cheap Japanese cars (Japan's close and there's no LHD/RHD conversion needed), that the Vectra hasn't really kicked off. Now that I think about it, it doesn't really surprise me that we don't have the latest one.

Audis and VW's tend to pack on a lot of weight. And do any of their FWD cars come with an LSD from the factory? A FWD car without an LSD is practically useless. Way too much understeer. :o I'll take a chance and say that the ITR would most likely outhandle and outperform any FWD VW or Audi in factory configuration on a road course. It's basically a track car. I remember the earlier ITRs didn't even come with A/C to save weight. :p

And as much fun as torque from a turbo is, it's just not as satisfying to me as running a car to 8000+ rpms and hearing the motor scream (assuming both cars are similar in overall acceleration). But that's just me.

Audis and VW's tend to pack on a lot of weight. And do any of their FWD cars come with an LSD from the factory? <snip>.

Yeah, I know I started it, however I was just showing support for my brand, and also showing respect for the honorable competition :) . Regardless of what you say, I like what I like, and the same will be true for yourself. I give, and always will, the Integra, RS X, and Civics much deserved respect, however they are not for me.

I also don't nit-pic the competition online. I just show up at the track with my helmet, set my tire pressure, and go out to have fun ;) .

LSD? I don't need no stinkin LSD! My inside track does just fine without ;)

google "integra type-r"

1.8L naturally aspirated engine that broke the 100hp/liter mark.

Arguably the best handling FWD car to date.


My take on the best handling FWD car is the Alfa Romeo GTA (147 or 156). It also sounds awesome. Take a look at this little clip from Top Gear: http://youtube.com/watch?v=hF6F68i3OK8&mode=related&search=

It has more power than standard, but beats the even more powerful RWD BMW M3. 'nuff said.

And it looks fantastic. Too bad its not a factory standard car though!

I'm guessing the best handly FWD car is the Ford Focus ST or the old Focus RS. The standard Focus was always widely considered to be the best handling car in its class and the ST and RS models are supposedly even better!

Then again I've never driven an RS, ST or an Integra for that matter so its just a guess :D

Ok, let's just leave it at the ST then, which is very good :D

Congrats on the car and all the hard work you put toward getting it:) . Join a VW/Jetta forum and start learning about how to maintain it and keep it looking good. Just the little things like changing out your air cleaner, changing your oil, and changing plugs will save you $ and you'll feel great doing it.

Pretty amazing how many different cars the T-Bird has been. From roadster to luxo-boat to retro coupe.

Treat it (not her - it's a car) right? What's that mean? Hopefully you wouldn't turn it into a garage queen. It's a hell of a car and I love using it for oddball things when I can.

I drive it every day. That's what I call treating it right. :)

My dad has a pretty nice car, and it just sits in the garage. He gets it out maybe once a week on the weekend. I feel it to be a bit of a waste.

My dad's BMW (see previous page) only gets out once or twice a month. The heater doesn't work well and there is not sound, which might account for the lack of driving, but it still is fun to drive.

Thank you. I do drive it like it was intended as much as possible. A couple times a year you can find us blazing up and down the Tail of the Dragon (http://www.tailofthedragon.com/) - 318 curves in 11 miles of mountain road.

http://sarasotadetail.com/gallery2/d/6076-2/img_1275mc.jpg

I've also driven the entire length of the Blue Ridge Parkway + Skyline Drive twice (500+ miles of mountain road). Try taking a mortal car for a 500 mile drive in 2nd and 3rd gear. :D I've driven it from Florida to Maine, Kansas, & Baltimore plus the aforementioned trips to North Carolina.

Also, we get together with other NSX owners and the Honda S2000 guys a few times a year for country cruises. Florida isn't exactly excitement central when it comes to great driving roads, but if you look around you can plan a fun route.

http://sarasotadetail.com/gallery2/d/1522-2/P7173806c.jpg

So, while I appreciate other's alarm at my using my car for a truck (I'm not hurting it - really!), I don't think anyone who knows me would accuse me of not enjoying my car to the max.

I've heard about the Tail of the Dragon, my friends (I drive a Scion tC) tC lost control on one of the turns and ended up damaging his rear bumper :ouch:

But I'm hoping to do a bit more suspension work before I head out there.

That is really great to see!

I am annoyed by people that get cars as presents, and just let them deteriorate! I am saying that because I too was given a car to drive (new at the time) and I did what I could to take care of it. It is still in great shape, and in the family.

I am glad that you love your car, and you appear to be taking really good care of it!

And it is much nicer than a Plymouth Breeze ;)

A detailing recommendation
To get your headlights crystal clear again, buy a bottle of swirl remover wax from a good auto-parts store and use a terry-cloth to buff them clear again. The outer surface on many car headlights can turn yellow or cloudy over time, and most (especially Chrysler products) can be buffed out with a bit of elbow grease.

The best thing about it is the fact that your headlights will provide more light at night too!

I'm right with you. They don't even appreciate that somebody spent sometimes quite a bit of money on it and make it look like crap. I can barely watch "Pimp my Ride" on MTV (which I rarely watch) because some of these kids have recent cars and they have ran it down to crap.

Now, I'm only 15 (16 in August) and I'm looking to get a Pontiac Grand Am (recent), Chevorlet Malibu, or Jeep Wrangler and I would treat that thing with lots of care.

Thanks! I do love my car. And I do take very good care of it. I wash it at least once a week (usually more - I have OCD), and do a full interior cleaning on a weekly basis as well.

And it is much nicer than a Plymouth Breeze ;)
Yes, it is! I just loved the Plymouth Breeze back in the late 90s when I first got a screen name!

They are actually crystal clear - the picture makes them look yellow and foggy. I have my jar of Mag polish for such circumstances should they arise!

Nothing dollar-wise compared to the NSX above. Nothing special or dollar-wise compared to a lot of the cars in this thread, but I think it's a fantastically fun car.

Audi A4 Quattro.

I will take your word for it. I just know it is a common problem for any car with Polycarbonate headlights. That includes my VW Passat :( .

But my headlights are new now, I converted to HID's :) (and NO they are not ultra blue, or purple ;) )

And on that note.. My car before the snow started to fall in Minnesota!

I didn't see any Audi owners here so i'll have to take a few pics and represent!

'03 A4 1.8T Quattro

Fantastic car, bought it pre-owned but the remaining warranty and service i've had so far has been great. Gets good mileage on the highways (when i keep it at a normal speed <120km/h) Drove from Toronto to Boston on a 60L tank. It handles beautifully with the sport suspension and even with the 1.8T can still go when I need/want it to. Now all i need is some snow to put the Quattro AWD to work (and to go snowboarding here in Ontario...)
