is it a boy goat or a girl goat?
Do you think Partsbreaker cares?
Obviously the subaru is the best choice. The automatic gets slightly less mileage ratings, and 170hp is definatly enough but its no race car. Subaru's are 10x easier to work on, fix, and find parts for.
I question the Volvo / Volkswagen AWD capability.
Cock's drive Audi's.
Yes Matt, I totally agree on that.
"Cocks drive Audi's" according to Top Gear.
VW… well yours is showing a good example of its durability over time and why not try out a new company?
As for Volvo, they're just monsters in terms of how safe it is. If I were to be in an accident with a Volvo, I better start praying that I don't get destroyed while the Volvo driver will be able to walk off scratch free. They're tanks.
However their drivetrain isn't as well built as the FUBAWU's
As for the BMW option, Bimmer is nice and affordable, but at the same price range the Bimmer will have the worst interior and trim options. Unless you care more about having the BMW rep rather than comfortable and rich looking interiors for the price you pay, go for it.
As far as looks go, the A4 wagon just looks sick IMHO, similar fascia design to the R8
Good luck with the search. The older Subaru's look awesome and come with the subaru reputation as well.
09 looks cool too
Just to stir shit up (impossbile to buy in NA… me wants…)
it wasnt the highway, just a side road(50 or 70), i dont even think i had a chance to use the brakes.
if that thing had ABS all it would be doing when that F350 popped out infront of the tiny FOX would be making high pitched pulsating noise laughing at your doom and of course with a little final touch when the "BRAKE SENSOR LIGHT" turns on.
You have got to be kidding! If you have never been in a panick stop situation you have never driven much. How long have you been drivng???
So you've never been on an icy road and a deer jumps out in front of you? You've never been following someone and they have ran head on into another vehicle and both vehicles have spun into your lane? You've never came over the crest of a hill to find a semi trailer sitting sideways on the road upside down with no lights on it working?……..
btw the "drifting 18 year old" (NOT) here would like to recommend something called. SPACING, constant OBSERVATION and positive thoughts.
If all those three things happened to me, chances are I will probably not be able to walk again, with or w/o ABS.
with all due respect of course ;)
ABS would make this unpredictable as fuck.
If I just shelled out 30-40K for a car that came equippeed with ABS, I'd keep it.
However, having driven both ABS and standard brakes, it's much more predictable for me to just feather my brakes.
As for my car community, ABS is just removed as the entire unit as well as All wheel steering.
PS: connor, my driver license is good. The only difference from ATB? I got my class 5 a year and half ago when ATB could have gotten his almost 3 years ago.
pun aside, why do you feel the collider is a big waste of time?
it was kind of like a hill billy violating a goat to see if he could breed some axe wielding goat men but he just ended up with an infection in his urethra leading to amputation.
LOL…. Try this….remove that ABS fuse and slam your brakes on and try to turn a corner……Now reinstall that fuse and do the same thing….ABS isn't about stopping distances. It's about avoiding collisions by being able to steer during a panic stop on icy roads…
It's been mentioned in this thread, many other systems operate off ABS inputs including AWD syatems, TCM inputs, TCCM inputs, ECM inputs…etc… Bypassing an ABS system is ridiculous…Why would you bypass it??
BTW… If you're in an accident and it's found you have tampered with your ABS you will be charged with a faulty vehicle.
ABS does suck. Like Random Hero said things like those are for "n00bs".
I'm no stig or world's awesomest driver, but for people who enjoy driving ABS sucks. Your brain, legs and eyes are your ABS. DO bikes come with them? Hell no. Sure it's impractical for bikes because of the ABS system's weight but if you see people who crash all the time at whistler, it's either people who don't know how to control their brakes or drunk freetards putting in some last laps after some 5 dollar burger and 10 dollar pitcher (AKA 15 dollar dinner) at Merlins. Most of the time the freetards ride better after the beer.
