So I'm doing alright for myself. 30 y/o bachelor in a 165k a year marketing job. I've nearly paid off my house I bought when I was 24 so I'm now looking for a decent car.
I'm thinking about an Audi RS3 Sportback or an A45 AMG. Test driven both and both blew me away. I like the A45's daft canards and wing, bare bones interior, SLS interior pieces and popcorn machine exhaust notes, but I think the RS3 is a better car.
Also considering, if the bank will loan me the money, buying an NSX or F355 for investment purposes.
Wat do /o/?
Currently drive a 2002 Subaru Outback H6 with a manual, tragically it's the best car I've ever owned.
Comparing a shit Audi to a Mercedes (taking into account it's also a shit Mercedes. Only decent ones are from E on upwards.
F355 is a money pit, even while parked.
NSX would be a much more sane choice.
If you don't have suitable conditions don't even think about it.
No, your regular suburbia home garage isn't a suitable place to have a car parked "valuing".
>laughing at the idea of someone asking for opinions on cars on a board titled 'Auto'
I don't consider /o/ 4chan as most of us have jobs.
What's wrong with Audis? Audi did pioneer AWD and made arguably the greatest rally car of all time behind the Lancia Stratos.
Parts bin cars. It's just a VW with different clothes with a markup on price tag to jew shekels out from retards that can't see what they are not.
Audi have been marketed to be perceived as a higher product they are not.
Inventing a 4WD system is nothing out of the extraordinary. Many more brands have invented something themselves.
4chan is mostly full of kids and /o/ is a board that raves about Twingos, Miatas, and shitboxes. How would any advice coming from shitlords like that be valuable for cars on that price range beats me.
Go get your shit Audi you pleb cunt. And don't forget to suck a dozen nigger dicks while you wait for it.
Asking for opinions on construction builders lovers cars. A3s and Mercedes SAVs. And you call yourself a man.
What a faggot.
Audi didn't pioneer AWD, Spyker did. Audi just reinvented the wheel.
Anything on the MLB platform isn't Volkswagen. Sure, some engines might be, but anything over 6 cilinders is usually made or designed by a dedicated group of Audi/Porsche engineers.
Depends on where you live. If you're in Europe, I'd suggest a V10 RS6 with a sizeable emergency fund.
>The marketing jews have made him "think" an Audi is a good car
Chris Evans doesn't seem to think so.
Op I am a 31 year old auto tech who has been working at a German and high end specialty shop for 11 years now. My advice is to stay away from Audis. They seem to be the most failure ridden problematic cars that come in. Even with spectacular maintenance I have seen major problems with these, especially the newer ones.
Beats me, but watching him make a cock of himself on the BBC's new politically correct, diverse and feelings-safe Cuck Gear should be a laugh for the first few episodes.
Volkswagen Group (the holding) =/= Volkswagen (the car manufacturer).
It may be a platform owned by the VW (the holding company), but it's been designed by Audi(mostly, some stuff's from Porsche), and it's only used by Audi and Porsche. There are no cars right now on the MLB platform with a VW badge on them.
VAG mostly is owned by porsche, Porsche Automobil Holding SE to be more exact, which is owned by Porsche and Piech families as well as a saudi arabian
Yes, A FUCKING relevation to me as well a few months back as well, but half the german industry is actually austrian
Voting rights // Ownership
Two different things.
The owners of Porsche (the Porsche and Piech families) created a separate company (Porsche SE) for the sole purpose of managing Porsche AG (the car manufacturing division). And so, Porsche SE owned 100% of Porsche AG which is responsible for actually building the sports cars we all love. Porsche SE sold about 50% of Porsche AG to VW, but at the same time, Porsche SE (again, controlled by the Porsche and Piech families) bought a little over 50% of the entire VW Group. Years later, Porsche SE sold the remaining 50% to the VW Group but by that time, the Porsches and Pieches had already gotten a comfortable 50% majority of the entire VW Group. So basically, the owners of Porsche bought (the controlling majority) of th VW Group and later just allowed VW to take control of the Porsche brand which will be controlled by them any way. So I guess in terms of companies, if we consider the fact that Porsche SE doesn't really build cars and is not the "Porsche" we usually refer to, you could say VW owns Porsche, BUT in terms of stockholders, Porsche definitely owns VW.
Is this that fabled german autism?
Porsche is austrian desu
Go for the car that makes your dick hardest. Plain and simple. Having the car some bald faggot on youtube says is best is dumb as fuck. That said, what about other used AMG Mercedes? The A45 is horrifically overpriced.
Jelly from rebadged VWs for schmucks?
> is this bait?
The shared platforms and parts bin doesn't apply to every brand. In the VW universe it does though.
But from time to time it does happen to other brands too. For instance, Volvo V/S40 were a Mitsubishi Lancer or the other way around I don't quite recall right now. The current A class, with the 160cdi variant is just a Mercedes shell with a Renault engine. Some Chevrolets on the European market are just a Fiat in disguise, just like that Jeep which I don't recall the name right now. And there are many more examples.
How to spot a pleb 101.
Sorry son, but A/B/C/GLA/CLA are pleb tier Mercedes.
You have no idea about the maintenance costs for a F355 haven't you? Even parked that car is draining your wallet. I haven't said its a bad car. By any means it isn't. But from an investment pov, the NSX is much more sane.
And it is an horrific Mercedes. Have you ever sat in one? Hard shittty plastic everywhere. The metal frame on the doors is naked. That screen plastered in the dash is hedious. It's a segment made for plebs to cry about their "Murc".
>Some Chevrolets on the European market are just a Fiat in disguise
>Sorry son, but A/B/C/GLA/CLA are pleb tier Mercedes.
Says who? You?
I'm sure an A Class is much better than your eg hatch.
>You have no idea about the maintenance costs for a F355 haven't you?
Yes, I do. But on the other hand I don't compare it to a fucking NSX.
My sister in law wanted a GLA and her parents ended up getting a GLA, so I guess I can vouch for what I've said. On the other hand I've owned a W211 E, no longer on my possession, but from there you can extrapolate that no, I'm not driving an eg civic right now.
And no you haven't the slightest clue otherwise you wouldn't spewing out shit without any fundamment. Have I compared the NSX to the F355 or have I just said it is a more sane investment? Stupid fuck.
