So I was talking to my girlfriend last night about cars. She's not cartarded, but she doesn't know a whole lot. She said for her DD, she'll probably just end up getting a civic. I'd rather her not be in one, mainly because of the dbag stigma and frequency that hondas get stolen/broken into around here.
I'd like to suggest a few different cars, they'll still be reliable and relatively cheap, but a whole lot nicer than a civic. I'll be helping/teaching her to work on the car.
All I can think of so far is an e30/e34 inb4lolelectrics inb4lolwaterpump.

>Manufacturers are straying away from RWD because a FWD layout is: Cheaper to produce, Cheaper to manufacturer, Results in more cabin room, results in less parasitic loss - More horsepower at the wheels, Higher efficiency, better fuel economy - Overall less loss in the system - Looks better on paper (more wheel horsepower, cheaper, better MPGS)
>Meanwhile, /o/ raves at how terrible the current industry is, how FWD is terrible, how new cars have NO SOL AND PASHON
Remind me again why you don't like the FRS/BRZ?
It's the turning point in modern car design. It's the car that designates the switch from FWD (that is better on paper) to RWD (which is better on the road)
FWD is subjectively a better platform for the average person. FWD platforms return a larger profit margin. Because of this, RWD economy cars are nearly nonexistent.
RWD is for enthusiast, the minority, a dying breed. Why don't you support the FRS already?
Perhaps other manufacturers will follow the trend of cheap and affordable enthusiast-orientated RWD vehicles.
Why should you have to drive a sportscar to enjoy the pleasure of Rear-driven automotive bliss?

new rider here, only been riding about 2 months, currently got a peugeot speedfight 100, looking to upgrade to a 125. and i know this sounds vain but i want something that looks nice, like an actual bike as aposed to the piece of crap ive been scooting around on (works like a dream but i look and sound like a scrote). ive been thinking about a cbf 125, and nearly every review ive read is outstanding, but what do you guys think? want some hands on reviews. cheers in advance.

ok /o/, i might have fucked up...
bought a used 4th-gen 94 prelude with some aftermarket work done to it...
all the aftermarket work seemed legit and used quality parts...
now that i have it, i'm finding out a rim is cracked, the tint is coming off, the car seems to rattle and shake a lot at 60+, nevermind the paint job and interior i was already planning on redoing....
at this point, i'm considering repairing the rim and reselling the car to get as much of my money back as i can (i only paid $2800 for the car and around $100 in title changes and such so far).
should i try to resell it and drop a bit more money on a stock car that is a bit newer (something 2000+) and use it as my project car? or should i just man up and use the money i would spend on another car to work on this prelude?
the prelude i got already has headlights, tail lights, mirrors, cool air intake, cd palyer, already wired for a system, 225-40 tires on 18in rims, and adjustable coilovers, so those are all the things i don't have to invest in.
picture kind of related. it's what i have, but not the exact car.
