Anyone else enjoy driving pigfat American cars? Pic related
Did you originally buy that new Anon? i didn't even know you could buy Escalades in Europe.
Don't they tax the hell out of those? seems like it would've actually been cheaper to buy a Land Rover or something.
I'm stoked that you bought an Escalade in Yurop. A big "Fuck You!" to all the uptight assholes who think of themselves as modest people.
What country are you in again? Do you live/work in an urban area? Or more rural or suburban?
I'm rich so who gives a shit. I'm actually an American living in Europe so I figured I would shitpost irl
You should lift your truck higher, cut your converter off, and blow stacks of freedom in their face
I have dual citizenship with the US and EU. Bought lots of land in Spain and got my citizenship that way. Now I live in Switzerland near Zurich.
>American living in Europe so I figured I would shitpost irl
Cannot stress the related pic enough. If i was there and had the Money i would drive a Viper around.
I'm not a nigger, anon. I do bump Kendrick Lamar tho
I drive like an asshole?
Yeah, even the taxi caps are S class mercedes.
They would try to fight you over German superior engineering.
>Thinking that you are the only one with a big murrican car in EU
I see Suburbans and Escalades on the Autobahn suprisingly often. Amazingly they're always also blasting along at at least 100 mph. Seems like once you can afford one of those you don't care about fuel bills either.
One time when visiting Belgium, for the second time in my teenage years, I happened upon a 70s land barge in the middle of Ghent. In-fucking-explicably driven down old tiny alleyways and in the middle of this square which looked like tiny euro cars struggled to get into.
No, someone simply imported an ex cop car. As butt tight as the Brits are about everything else, they really don't care about road legality and apparently even leaving the light bar on is something they can let slip.
>They use American cars as cop cars there?
No, they use small yuroshit.
I fucking hate parking. That's the only complaint. I was trying to get some Mövenpick Ice Cream over on Theaterstrasse 8 and all these Krauts just stare at you while they whisk by on their bikes.
Anyone familiar with Zurich near the lake on 17 will know exactly what I'm talking about.
There was this huge American landbarge near me for a long time, right in the centre of the city. Haven't seen the thing for a long time now, sadly, and never snapped a pic either.
>Not many people that care about cars around here.
this couldnt be more true. the only modified cars i see is shitty riced stuff.
its like no one cares.
A friend of mine has a 2nd gen pre-facelift Clio RS Cup with the sticker package on it, that thing's pretty hilarious.
Also there's EPS Uitlaten/USA Engines B.V. here up north, who tend to have some pretty unique projects from time to time.
That's pretty much it though, sadly. They're out there, but rare.
You could've gotten any other suv. A fucking fully loaded 4runner would be a better choice. But you ignored the better interior of the range rover, the better engine in the g63 and said "I want the biggest slowest ugliest least comfortable worse handling and the worst all wheel drive."
Escalades are white culture appropriated by niggers
I have one
My mom has one
I hate luxury SUVs but...
>worst all wheel drive
It's 4wd dipshit and at least the escalade is actually a truck as opposed to everything else you listed except the 4runner which doesn't compete with escalades.
You've obvioysly never driven a g63 or range rover. The 4wd in those two cars are better then the escalade by miles.you can't even lock the diffs in the escalade unlike the range and the merc which both have better ground clearance and approach angles. I love luxury suvs. But theres no excuse for buying an escalade over anything
Rather angry 454cid under the hood if I remember correctly.
I agree whole heartedly on the utility aspects of the design. Its as tall as a lifted jeep, the torque steer under hard acceleration is appalling, the doors HAVE to be slammed the driving position is too high in my opinion and the transmission handles the power well but has annoying shift points and when in semi auto, its slow to respond. However the amg interior is actually pretty nice. Mercs tend to have the best bolstering and lumbar which are adjustable which is nice. The interior can be fitted with carbon fibre trim but it looks terrible so go with the piano black. All that said. You can't compare an escalade to a merc or range. They're just not in the same league.
> In rich so I bought a big enough chunk of Spain for then to consider me Spanish.
> Now I fucking tear up Switzerland with my Murrican steel because fuck it.
You seem like eh pretty cool guy. Not really a jerk by American standards (except Occupy LOLtists).
Do many Euros think you're a jerk?
Do you have a gun?
What are Swiss plebs like?
Is the refugee situation having an effect on their lives?
On your life?
Have a pic of my Ameripleb shitboxes
1. No, they think it's awesome seeing this car drive around. To them it's like seeing some weird euro car driving in the states.
3.Swiss in germanbro part are awesome. French and Italian side can fuck back off. Especially the dirty French. They ruined Geneva.
4. Not really.
5. Only worried they might steal my shit. Don't really bother with them.
I'm not really a dick, I'm just playing it up.
>They would try to fight you over German superior engineering.
They can keep it. Look at this pic. No one would claim this is superior engineering. This is just excessive - that's American engineering.
bu-but muh German engineering
probably beer drinking normies.
and i still suck at getting my licence i had at least 25 lessons and i still suck.
that and also this bitch cant teach me shit.
This was last summer, when I took it to the Nurburgring.
Is this what you actually believe?
The eurocuck meme is real.
Meh, I'm taking way more lessons than I should because I might as well get the experience behind the wheel.
Also because I'm genuinely diagnosed with a mental disorder there's a lot of additional bullshit I need to pass before I can get my license, so that's always fun.
hey just because the Germans are too whipped to make an attempt
>your gf probably likes BBC too
That's why she's with me anon
>If the entire point in American engineering is to make things excessive and wasteful,
But what if its not? we make some of the smallest most compact performance V8s in the world some of which are smaller and weigh less while achieving the same amount of power as Nissan's V6 in the R35
We prefer lower horsepower per liter because we know its more reliable than high-horsepower per liter (on NA cars anyway) and eventually having to replace every little thing on the engine.
Its ultimately how a lot of our cars ended up winning European endurance races simply because we spent less time fixing our cars and more time actually driving.
>Ford GT40 (not american but american engine)
this sight has hint that a bigger turbo could be used due to a hot v combined with some funky manifold
The G65 is limited to 240kph and it pulls like nothing until then. It'd easily do 280, if tires existed that could cope (from a manufacturer's perspective, before you go all autistic)
Its the offroad suspension and offroad tires. Even at the correct psi which they were, theres just too much play in the sidewalls for me to trust on a top speed run. Unless i was at VAGs testing site.
>too much play in the sidewalls for me to trust on a top speed run
That's why I was talking about specifically made tires. The one it comes with are made so that you could actually go a slight bit offroad, I believe. As that's what it's being advertised as.
Exactly. If it was equipped with proper amg performance wheels and appropriately sized rubber i would have less qualms about maxing it. The torque steer on launch is another story.
OP here. Added this magnificent piece of car flare today. What do you euro fags think?
Believe me when i say dont do it in an escalade or any other giant suv. You will fall asleep at the wheel. Im serious. I drove an escalade 4 hours and i could not keep it on the road.
I like how fat and bulky the Trax is unlike Jap crossovers.
they had a supercharged Dodge dart here in Iceland back in the day. cops here weren't allowed to leave their area of service so it was a pretty big thing that people in Reykjavík would blaze it to the next town. however the nearest town is where that Dart was posted so it must have costed some driving licences
I know you're just a troll, but one of the reasons why Europe's economy isn't as vibrant as America's is because europeans tend to not buy on credit, and save their money. You could crash the European economy and it wouldn't be that terrible, it's really in the wealthier (more similar to America) parts that there would be problems, and they have much more responsible fiscal policies plus a much better culture with money.
Basically they'd do a lot better than us because they're not obsessed with buying shit they can't afford.
Still couldn't fight Russia for shit without us though, so there goes all that good stuff. What's the point if you let Putin cuck you?
TFW i go to the nurbuergerking every summer with friendos (pic from last year)
we should do an /o/ meet. this year i'll take a twingo MK1 for the lulz (yes, really).
That would be amazing. Although the 400km drive without A/C was hard but I was having too much fun to care.
/o/ meet at the Nurburgring? that would be amazing.. We should all go for a ride on the Ring together.. guaranteed crashes..
>cucking you fags
Lol we have escallades over here too, they're called range rovers
Also your clearly in the military living in germany that got his hands on the car somehow
Have fun risking your life for Isreal
>I live in Switzerland near Zurich.
This is the American/Swiss cuck defending American cars ages a while back saying "I'm Swiss" whenever someone would give an argument about euro vs america
>/o/ meet at the Nürburgring
my boy is ready
I have a friend in Norway who drives an Escalade, it cracks me up imagining someone driving a massive cadi boat in Europe.
You are a rad guy op, don't let anyone tell you otherwise
bruh it is a WR125 dualsport. no point in polishing a turd.
>tfw no 125cc 2t king of the peasant displacement
So he _can_ cut the green. Ripping hectic skids and getting mad air also results in stunt points, which can be used via the "boost" mechanism.
Your friend just has to do some serious sphincter clenching around the ergonomically designed switch to activate it.
Chilling at Devil's Diner talking about cars/bikes and taking in the glorious hurrdurrring atmosphere is fun too though.
until everything is set up i'll have my A2, I promise.
yeah, I live 40 minutes away (Autobahn) or if you take one of the multiple twisties it takes about 1 hour, depending on how fast you are (how much of a mad cunt you are to overtake in corners) and traffic obviously
What's quite hilarious is how GERMAN ENGINEERING gets fuckall fuel mileage and power from a fucking humongous V12 engine while murricans make the same more power with less cylinders and better fuel economy.
Celicaguy here, I'm up for it. It is a 400km drive for me though.
But let's do what >>14191230 says and go in summer.
So are you yellow Punto anon?
Didn't know you ride a bike as well!
>my gf insisted that we go get groceries, that's why I am late to answer.
Sounds great, let's hope someone actually starts a thread.
Sorry, but my car ain't italian.
There's always something so cringworthy about British people with yank cars.
Don't get me wrong, some of them are very nice. There's a dealer near me specialising in the pick-up trucks that look kinda cool.
No, the problem is the people that tend to drive them:
>40-60 years old
>Wears a denim jacket with patches of 50's rock bands
>Plays in an Elvis tribute band
>Thinks he's a hell's angel but really works in B&Q
>Dresses their kids up like cowboys/girls who tells everyone that "We don't like modern music, I'm only 17 but I like (Insert 50's band here)"
>Wears sunglasses and hats inside
>Loud and obnoxious
The cars are fine (Mostly), but the people...
>...one of the reasons why Europe's economy isn't as vibrant as America's is because europeans tend to not buy on credit, and save their money.
Yeah, and also you have one currency but not one government, and not all of the member countries are completely stable economies and they fuck with the countries that are. But sure, credit card debit probably also has something to do with it.
I love my barge desu, gif not related but sorta related to the thread
why don't you ever post in the /dbt/?
or do you?
Nope, I don't. Don't have a good reason for not doing so, now that I think about it.
I used to lurk them about a year ago though.
Are the circlejerk levels intense or tolerable right now?
