Am I the only one that doesnt like the new Batsuit? Why does the suit have veins? Why are the ears so short? TDKR suit was better. It actually looked like armor.

@FireEmblem_Man: That looks more like an argument for why they're awesome.

Well, I was looking at the Fiat 500 Abarth Competizione but the reviews aren't glowing.

I don't know much about Fiat other than they make sports compacts kinda like MINI.

Playing Tomb Raider DE on PS4 makes me want a new Tomb Raider game. One with less of Lara falling down slopers and/or being blown out of buildings.

@clyde46: i've owned a renault clio 2.0L, it was great although a little unreliable.

had friends with honda civic VTEC, very happy with their cars. i like japanese cars for their reliability (and other things). toyota corolla's are awesome, however they can be rather bland.

manual or automatic?

Manual is ideal but an auto is ok if its good. There is a guy who comes into my work that owns one of only 200 Mugen Civics Type R's in the world. He loves it.

I was looking at the Abarth but the reviews say its ride is poor for a DD, the interior is sub-standard for a car that costs around £20K and the radio is seriously dated.

@clyde46: oh so you're looking at something relatively new. i'm not too sure then.

i'd probably just buy japanese.

in other news, my internet speed just got upgraded. apparently I'm getting 35megabits/s down, and 10 up. because it was about 17, 1.

Not sure I want a Japanese car. I was looking at a Ford Fiesta ST now.

Been looking for my first car lately. Current frontrunner is a Toyota Yaris. Mostly because it's cheap.

good reliable basic car the yaris (called Echo over here).

i'd get the biggest engine one I could, the echo comes as large as 1.5L - which makes for pretty good driving in such a small car.

#624 Edited by Demonjoe93 (9793 posts) -

I only have experience with older car shopping. My price range was $6,000 max. I ended up buying a 2000 Toyota Celica with about 127,000 miles on it for only $4000 after taxes and license and registration. I bought it from one of the only dealerships in Florida that doesn't do dealer fees.

I've had it for a little over four months and have put about seven thousand miles on it. It's a champ.

I hadn't realized the Echo was the Yaris. It used to be called that in the U.S. too. It was also a commercial failure here.

doesn't surprise me tbh. serious question - would you say american's prefer to buy american cars?

the 2000 celica, that's the one with a fairly 'interesting' shape, yes? i've heard those are good to drive if your model has toyota's variable valve timing (VVT).

excellent. almost the whole of this page of the lounge is about cars.

Most of us do not have a nationalistic urge to only buy American cars, no. In fact, I think Toyota is actually the number one seller here. We definitely seem to prefer our own trucks (like the F-150 and the Silverado) and our own sports cars though (like the Camaro and Mustang).

Yeah, my Celica definitely does stand out due to its styling. It's not something people are used to seeing when it comes to sports cars, as Mustangs, Camaros, Chargers, Firebirds, and even Challengers are more commonly seen here. I don't know if I have a VVT since mine's secondhand though.

#628 Posted by Demonjoe93 (9793 posts) -

Although we like the Tundra too. Other than that, I don't see a lot of foreign trucks.

Have you considered a Focus ST? Much tougher than a Fiesta.

lol. I enjoyed this, recorded it, and I'm going to be listening to it every day motoring. Hopefully this new artist can keep the flow and keep dropping tracks.

Will go to concert when they come locally.

If you're gonna get a Ford car, anything besides a Focus and a Fusion are a waste. Both have high resale value, pretty amazing gas mileage and are pretty durable/easy to maintain.

Hyundai i10 is where it's at, all hail the glorious Koreans.

You'd like the place I just started working at, surrounded by body repair garages so there's all sorts of nice shit showing up, saw two Nissan GTR's today both with douchey personalised number plates. Saw a Ferrarri last week as well and thought "Hmm, that looks a bit off". Turns out it was a Toyota MR2 with a body kit on it.

If you download the demo of Child of Light on the ps4 then buy it and don't restart the game, the game won't save your progress. While I was playing none of my trophies were unlocking, so I restarted it and welp just gonna have to create a new game lol the game is awesome though
