I've been considering getting a GTI.
Up until now, I've only owned Jap econoboxes.

Is the common wisdom of German cars true?
Are maintenance schedules required to be followed more closely?

have a 2015 GTI, pain in the ass to keep running. No mechanical issues yet however it has a reciprocating ball bearing turbo so you have to baby the car when you start it up and when you turn it off

You've ever been tempted to run?

Just to see if you could pull it off?

cant outrun a radio

once they identify your car, face or license plate, you cant run. People who run are just increasing their sentence

Is the IS300 the best first car for someone who wants to get into cars?

If by IS300 you mean 3k civic then yes it is.

No. The IS300 is the best first car for someone who appreciates a good, fun, stock car. All the ricerfags don't know what the fuck they're doing and ruin the hell out of it.

If you want to get into mods and shit get a Saab. Those things are cheap as dirt and come turbocharged from the factory. Slap some Euro-rice on it, diverter valves and whatever the fuck else then have some dude tune it for $100. Blow it up then learn from that.

I dont think an unreliable shitbox will be good for a first time car buyer


Saabs are money pits

Why would a manurfacturer choose an I4 over a V4? Car makes who use V6s for packaging but then use I4s when V4s have superior packaging? Also unlike a V6 a V4 is a balanced engine design.

I4 is cheaper to manufacture
>>
v4 has two heads
>>
V4 is worse, the advantage is smaller packaging in exchange of being more complicated and lower performance

just like V6 is worse than i6 but because of packaging V is used now.

Does anybody happen to know anything about the electrical systems in old ambulances? Specifically a 1998 Ford f/e[?]350 conversion van with an ambulance system by Wheeled Coach/Rev Group of Florida? Thus far I've been completely unable to find documentation or even a perfect match on a model, but through dicking around with a 12v jump box grounded to the chassis, some ghetto-rigged jumpers, and the cut 80+ wire loom I've managed to get power to everything in the rear interior off battery (always on, they ripped out the switch panel before sale so we're going to have to make a new one) and jump some of the exterior lights on temporarily. Really looking for a wiring diagram if possible, they're labelled on the loom but not clearly and I'm not familiar with what all of these devices are called. Ideally I'd like to have flashers and sirens working just for shits and giggles.

oh and the horn

I made the horn work too, but not off the button on the steering wheel. If you put 12v to it the horn works, the aftermarket ambulance kit has the factory horn run through their loom for some reason. So we'll probably just put that on a switch too for the sake of simplicity.

What's the best Mercedes model from 2010 and up?
