I think cars should have one screen at most. Put the radio/infotainment/nav on the screen and that’s it. HVAC should have tactile buttons, seat controls should have buttons, wipers should be on a stalk, and cluster gauges should be analog with arrows and simple faces.
Was this thing even made out of metal? It almost looks like somebody made a body kit out of cardboard and rattle canned it with one layer of black paint. Nothing about this looks luxurious or fancy... people with money would probably rather buy a Cullinan or a Bentayga which are made by reputable companies with real…
Ah, that makes sense. I earn about $3200 a month after taxes, and my girlfriend earns about $4000 a month after taxes, and our rent is $1200 for a large 2-bedroom apartment in a nice, quiet area. Still feels like a lot of money to spend on rent.
156k miles is nothing... the majority of my BMW’s have had 200k+ miles on them.
Probably rolled a lot of negative equity in from a previous car... people seem to love trading in their nearly-new cars for newer cars even when they have no equity in them.
Where on earth is that
Fair point, I think they all use nasty cloth to clean. Not sure how often those get cleaned, but they’re always pretty gross whenever I see them.
Why anybody would take a car that expensive to a nasty automated wash boggles my mind... wash it by hand yourself, or at least pay for a hand wash— you can probably afford that if you can afford a new GLS.
Paying that much for basically a roofless (aka worse) version of a GT3 makes no sense to me. But I’m not in Porsche’s target demographic (I have $29 in my bank account right now) so maybe I just don’t get it.
The worst are the people with lifted trucks that don’t adjust their headlights accordingly and blind everybody... there’s a special circle of hell for those people.
That depends on how the tickets are treated in your state. In Arizona, the tickets are dropped after 90 days if you don’t get served, so there’s no effects to my credit or driver’s license. Not that it matters, since my credit is pretty crap anyways.
Do you have to pay those tickets? In Phoenix, the tickets aren’t legally enforceable unless you’re served in person, so the city that issued the ticket (Phoenix/Mesa/Scottsdale/Tempe/Gilbert) has to send out a process server within 90 days to serve the ticket for it to be legit. So I always throw those tickets in the…
Three cheers for Silicon Valley, reinventing and innovating new paradigms in living life! Heck, next they’ll disrupt breathing and introduce a whole new way to do it!
If I had to buy a brand new car, it would definitely be a Mustang GT with a manual transmission and no options aside from the performance pack. I don’t need the navigation system, I don’t need the Magnaride, I don’t need the active exhaust— I’d throw it on coilovers and put a loud exhaust on it the day after taking it…
I had an SN-95 for a while as well, so that is where most of my experience comes from, haha. I did know a guy with a 2015 EB Mustang and his interior started rattling a bit after only a year, but who knows, maybe that was a first-year issue with the new body style. I do think the newest generation of Mustangs is leaps…
I’ve gone back and forth between having the two, I’m honestly not bothered by aux-in. Plus with aux-in you can just hook up a cheap little Bluetooth receiver, problem solved.
I miss the days when Archer was in a vague cold-war time period doing all sorts of silly spy shenanigans. They lost me once they stopped doing that.
I would rather buy a base Mustang GT 6-speed than a fully loaded EcoBoost. Infotainment systems are silly and always look outdated— give me a simple radio with an aux-in. The leather that Ford uses isn’t that great, so cloth is fine. The interiors will rattle about the same in a few years either way. Extra cameras and…
NP... throw a nasty cam and headers onto it, cat delete, straight pipe, and take it to the drag strip. You don’t need a working speedo to run down the quarter mile. The automatic makes it easier to do burnouts as well, which is mostly what you want to do with a beat-up C4 Corvette. I had a beat-up C5 Corvette and 75%…
ARCO in east Mesa. Seems like gas prices out east are generally cheaper than in Phoenix itself... I used to live in Central Phoenix and the gas prices there were always way higher for some reason.
