Me and my dad are looking at cars right now, I can't drive in his current car so we need to change (can't upkeep 3 cars, too expensive and no parking space). Went out today for the first time looking at cars. I must have gone through like fucking 10 cars before I found one where I could get my legs into a good position (really, really long legs, some cars I couldn't even get into with steering wheel all the way up and chair all the way back, you can tell they're designed by short Japanese engineers). Eventually, I tried a Suzuki Swift (1.3L 2006) pretty much as a joke, and it was bloody perfect. The steering wheel went up high enough and center console was so small and to the right that it didn't get in the way like in a lot of cars. Anyone know of other cars with a similar design? I'm looking in the moves-and-works-and-doesn't-need-repairs-in-a-long-while price-range (10,000€ and down) For people that don't live in Finland, we're talking Punto/Xsara Picasso price-range here. [editline]18th January 2012[/editline] I don't see what's funny about a person with really long legs looking for a car.
I was more funny-ing at "Xsara picasso" price range. Because I own one :v: What's wrong with the swift? I like them. Also, I think I have found my car: [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/286964/media.jpg[/img] I simply LOVE it. And £1400 insurance is very appealing. How that 0.6L engine with an autobox will handle pulling a bit of audio gear though is something I'll have to try. I REFUSE to buy a Deawoo matiz.

[QUOTE=NuclearAnnhilation;34284853]What sort of barren wasteland do you live in? It looks very...tranquil?[/QUOTE] Urban Minnesota. You cant see it in the photo but there is a major street that goes by on the left along with housing. To the right, A LOT (like a couple miles) of biking trails. Police officers and Bicyclists have gotten lost in there. Fun place.
Minnesota DOT and construction in general is pretty retarded. In Apple Valley they built a really nice new transit station and it was in use for about 6mo-1yr before they decided to rip apart Cedar Ave, now they have to use the old transit station again. Why rip apart Cedar? surely to extend the mvta light rail from bloomington? fuck no, they're just making cedar wider. WHY

It can be done but the amount of work involved is crazy and expensive plus reliability is straight out of the window. For NA Honda engines I've seen 290bhp out of an H22 engine with dynos to prove but, again, that was after replacing most of the stock internals and throwing a shit ton of cash at it. If you want 500bhp on the cheap then most of the Jap 3 litre forced inductions will just about handle it on stock internals, things like Toyota Supras, Mitsi 3000GT, Nissan 300ZX etc.
2.0? These are [i]1.6[/i]. Bisimoto's D16Z6 (The blue car, middle) is making 724hp on race gas and he drives it in Ontario, Cali. By far my favorite Civic ever built, and it's a wagon. :3c [editline]19th January 2012[/editline] You guys should check out the build thread, it's some good shit.

I hate the UK :v: Currently looking through the others.
