The point of the thread was to be cheap.

Wrong.

he said he couldn't be bothered selling gt to buy gtt. So the thread is based on a misguided assumption that turboing an na will be easier than selling and then  buying a car, which is wrong.

oh man, settle down. cars are a waste of time, and money. lets all agree on that. 

Slap, you are enthusiastic. I'll give you that. take a breath and chill out. no one is trying to fight. let alone get on a plane to fight people (that you implied) .

You guys were clearly warned, temporary bans handed out.  When/if you return, try discussing like adults.

Bugga - I have 2 of the 5 listed, and owned 2 others in recent years. Never had a WRX though, and don't plan to.

I've had 2 out of that list too.. LOL

Owning a Skyline is like a disease, it just sucks more and more out of you and returns nothing.

Sometimes I tell the missus a meth addiction is cheaper, just not neccessarily as healthy lol. 

Owning a Skyline can be best compared to a infatuation with a stripper.

Sounds like the author of that article is a Hilux/4WD owner.

Modifying any car will cost you money. Not as fun though. But there are better ways of doing things.

Sell car, buy R31 and install VL turbo "kit" :)

Either that or....

People into Skylines in 2006 weren't into Skylines because they were Skylines, but because Skylines were the current cream of the crop, bang for buck, pretty stout car.

Now in 2019 they look for the same requirements, and are also 13 years older than they were in 2006, so their requirements change a little, and unsuprisingly, look for cars that meet those same requirements. It's the things the car does that people were attracted to, not the car or badge itself.

No real car enthusiast is only an enthusiast for one specific car, make, etc. It's always been about how well the car matches the activity the driver finds fun that makes something good.

I'm at this point now... Poured a lot of effort, money and love into a car and get f**k all back. Been a long time since I touched the car and the longer the time passes the more I consider getting 50L of fuel and match to finish the job

I feel your pain :(

But I did buy a brand new European car, and holy shit I've been missing out on life, wish I spent $0 on the R33 and sold the damn thing 5 years ago and bought a 335i lol.

I'm currently applying compound interest to online gambling and plan to blow the $100,000 on an LC500 and proceed to ruin that car as well

I'd get a Hyundai i30 N, if they came in wagon form.

Eh, what was this thread about again?

ZEN and the art of motorcycle maintenance.

Recommended reading

In the book, the narrator describes the "romantic" approach to life of his friend, John Sutherland, who chooses not to learn how to maintain his expensive new motorcycle. John simply hopes for the best with his bike, and when problems do occur he often becomes frustrated and is forced to rely on professional mechanics to repair it. In contrast, the "classical" narrator has an older motorcycle which he is usually able to diagnose and repair himself through the use of rational problem-solving skills.

In an example of the classical approach, the narrator explains that one must pay continual attention: when the narrator and his friends came into Miles City, Montana[4] he notices that the "engine idle is loping a little", a possible indication that the fuel/air mixture is too rich. The next day he is thinking of this as he is going through his ritual to adjust the valves on his cycle's engine. During the adjustment, he notes that both spark plugs are black, confirming a rich mixture. He recognizes that the higher elevation is causing the engine to run rich. The narrator rectifies this by installing new jets with the valvesadjusted, and the engine runs well again.

With this, the book details two types of personalities: those who are interested mostly in gestalts (romantic viewpoints focused on being "in the moment", and not on rational analysis), and those who seek to know details, understand inner workings, and master mechanics (classic viewpoints with application of rational analysis, vis-a-vis motorcycle maintenance).

The Sutherlands represent an exclusively romantic attitude toward the world. The narrator initially appears to prefer the classic approach. It later becomes apparent that he understands both viewpoints and is aiming for the middle ground. He understands that technology, and the "dehumanized world" it carries with it, appears ugly and repulsive to a romantic person. He knows that such persons are determined to shoehorn all of life's experience into the romantic view. Pirsig is capable of seeing the beauty of technology and feels good about mechanical work, where the goal is "to achieve an inner peace of mind". The book demonstrates that motorcycle maintenance may be dull and tedious drudgery or an enjoyable and pleasurable pastime; it all depends on attitude.

I rather Korean than German :) too poor to buy new with warranty 😛 .

Current LG front loader replaced Bosch front loader (electronics failure after 5 years). 5 years still going hard.

But yeah, not a VW fan but the Passat R-line is good looking and big. My current gen 5 Liberty GT still going strong after 251,000 km though...
