• Help choosing a sports car to buy?

    To put it simply - I'm a hardcore car enthusiast who is looking for a different sports car. I plan on doing tons of track days and events.

    To put it simply - I'm a hardcore car enthusiast who is looking for a different sports car. I plan on doing tons of track days and events. I've previously had a 350z and a 370z & I currently have a 6 speed Volvo S60R. I'm looking for a car that's focused around handling with a decent amount of power. I considered miatas, but I only like the 2016+ ones and those are out of my price range. I was looking for something close to the 10-15k range with 15k being only if it's *perfect*. I'm hesitant to go back to a 350z just because I've already had 2. I was considering the BMW 135i/335i because of the N54 engine and their tuneability and sharp handling (esp the 135i), but I have questions on reliability and maintenance costs. S2000s would be fantastic, but extremely expensive for how old and the miles they have on them. Any input would be amazing. Thanks.

  • What's the point of having a fast car?

    Best answer: It's not about speed, it's about acceleration. A powerful car can accelerate better, which doesn't necessarily break the speed limit.

  • If you had $50,000 to spend on a new or used car plus the extra money for license, registration, tax and fees what would you buy?

    Best answer: Probably an odd response, but I'd buy a brand new Chevy Express 15 passenger van although I'd look at the Nissan NV3500 too. They're around $40k brand new and fully loaded with a gas engine. They're over $50k brand new and fully loaded with the diesel though. Not really a fancy choice but I have a... show more
    Best answer: Probably an odd response, but I'd buy a brand new Chevy Express 15 passenger van although I'd look at the Nissan NV3500 too. They're around $40k brand new and fully loaded with a gas engine. They're over $50k brand new and fully loaded with the diesel though.

    Not really a fancy choice but I have a big family and the Express and/or NV vans have the space I need and the towing capacity for a large travel trailer. I currently drive a Ford 12 passenger and it works but its getting old.

    If I could keep the difference I'd buy one about 5 years old for around $20k and keep the difference or use it to upgrade my other car also, but if it had to be spent on the one car I'd get the new van.

  • Hello expert car drivers, How do you park close to the curb?

    Best answer: A foot away is much better than graunching your alloys. If you look around you will see that others park about a foot away too. There is no benefit in trying to get nearer to the curb.

  • Witch is cooler windows rolled all the up or 1 inch gap to a parked car?

    Me and my brother are having an argument. He says keeping the car windows rolled all the way is better than leaving a small gap. He thinks leaving 1 inch gap makes the car hotter. I believe by leaving the car with 1 inch gap in the windows would make the car less hotter. With the windows rolled all the way up... show more

So, what do you think? Thank for looking into it.

  • How does the 'C' gear work in trucks?

    There is a 'C' on the gear stick in trucks that have more than 6 gears, I was wondering, how does it work exactly? I heard that it activates/deactivates something. And anyway, if it was a normal gear then why would it be labelled as 'C'? So my question is, what is that 'C' gear?

  • Does driving get less stressful? Easily flustered by other drivers.?

    I passed my test 8 weeks ago. I'm prone to getting stressed in heavy traffic. Today I made a fool of myself and I am still really upset about it.

    I passed my test 8 weeks ago. I'm prone to getting stressed in heavy traffic. Today I made a fool of myself and I am still really upset about it. My parents asked me to pick them up from the train station but when I got there the car park was gridlocked with cars trying to get in and out. With hindsight I should not have entered the car park but I was already in with no way of getting out by the time I realised how bad it was. Then this guy drove towards me trapping me with nowhere to go and I had no choice but to reverse into the queue of cars behind me. I panicked,stalled multiple times, blocked the entire road and then nearly hit the car behind all while pedestrians were walking all over the place. My parents could see I was in trouble and my dad made me get out and he jumped into the drivers seat and drove us out because people were starting to honk their horns. I am glad he did that but it was a very humiliating experience that about 20 - 30 people witnessed :'( I am still very upset about it. My dad gave me a hug afterwards as he could see how shaken I was and he kept reassuring me that mistakes are to be expected this early....but it doesn't take away from the fact that I feel humiliated and fearful to enter a busy car park again and I can't help but worry what would happen if he hadn't been there to get me out of that situation. Has anyone else made any embarrassing newbie mistakes like this and do stressful situations get easier to cope with?

  • What causes trailers to break down while driving?

    I've seen many trailers on the side of the road with one axle in the dirt where it looks like the tire hub broke off. What causes this? I'm about to take my boat 850 miles road trip and I'm wondering what I can do to make sure this doesn't happen to me.

  • A friend of mine went 80km over speed limit in Ontario a few days ago in rural/farm area highway. Can he get a fine in the mail?

    Are there cameras on the highway/laser beams/point to point tracking devices? He's scared sh*tless because it was a car rental and for his future job he can't have demerit points. He won't do it again but he needs a peace of mind and reassurance. Thanks!
