The Original Car Topic

Post by BlaZtek » 18 Sep 2013, 23:16

Oke...
So here is THE topic where YOU post pictures and give info of your car(s) and owner history, etc.

Let me be the first to show one of my cars.

Info:!:
Brand: BMW
Type: 3- Series E46
Engine: 2.0 Diesel
Chassi: Saloon
Production year: 2004
Rims winter: 17" original bmw
Rims summer:18" original bmw

I bough this car from a friend the spring 2012. It was imported from Germany. Fell in love with it instantly, and still is. BMW know what comfort is!

In Sweden we say that those are nice rims!
Blaztek's not so much. (no offense) I shouldn't say anything, I don't even have a car.

If I would have a car it would be this one: http://trialx.com/curetalk/wp-content/b ... Sti-3.jpeg
Subaru Impreza WRX STi 2010 model I think is very nice!

Axxu: Cool to see you also have bmw! Automatic or manual? 19" is a real filler, but is the car lowered?

Bjenn: Ye Axxu's rims are cool. In my picture there is those 17" winter rims you see :-P I have some better looking original summer rims :-) Anyways Id like to keep things original :-)

Hosp: Ez Volvo when can drive ;-)

Zworqy: Toyota is such a solid car :-)

Manual and not lowered. I like how the chassis of E46's look like, especially coupés.

Thank you, yes it's my gf inside. Holy shit I'm happy with my trade =) The comfort and luxury feeling in this is top notch!
It even has a built in 120 GB HDD which I can put music on and shit. And it has the pro audio package, much better sound than the original speakers.

I bought my first car ever some 6 months ago. 2006 Nissan Primera, not the best car but for my needs it's good enough for now. I don't drive very much and I would prefer public transport but small city so schedules suck. I might not keep this car for long and maybe get electric bike instead. Within city limits it might be faster a lot of the time and ofc it's cheaper / greener and I can borrow a car 90% of the time if I need for longer trip so owning one isn't super necessary anyway.

I'm glad that more and more people think this way. Me and my wife don't even have driving licences yet at 27 (though planning to do that sooner or later, would be max useful for renting cars and road tripping when travelling), I commute everywhere by bike or public transport when necessary, or taxi/uber if really necessary, and I feel 0 need for a car, especially given the traffic (I can get to most places faster or similar by bike than anyone would by car). Most of my friends have driving licences but only 1 has a car, the rest using bikes/scooters/public transport, and occasionally renting from car sharing if needed.

One thing I anticipate though is that when we have kids, it might simply become too convenient to have a car, and we'll yield.

What are others' experiences, do you also feel like cars largely stopped being a default target commodity for "our" generation (unlike for our parents, where it was the no. 1 goal), or is it just me? Obv in rural finland it's gonna be different, asking more the city mans =)

Depends a lot on the area I think. While my brother was living here in Moscow he had literally zero interest in cars (I believe we both were always bewildered by people's obsession with cars, even back in kindergarten), preferring public transportation or even taking long 1+ hour walks. But as soon as he moved to a small city in the USA he just had to get one as everything there is far away, there is no subway and buses don't come often enough.

Like him, I definitely don't plan on getting a car here in Russia. But currently I'm not optimistic about the idea of riding a bike either as the weather seems too shitty for it at least half a year, plus a lot of our roads get super dirty due to poor city planning (ground mixes with snow/rain everywhere). Also I've heard that Russian car owners generally hate bicyclists/motorbikers, who are basically considered freaks and a nuisance.

Still, there does appear to be an increase in people commuting by bikes/electric scooters/segways/etc. It's cool to see, although I wish there were more separate lanes for them, at the very least in parks. I mean, the reason I choose the sidewalk instead of the highway is to avoid fast moving vehicles but now these guys are kinda defeating the point lol. So I feel like the city is not quite ready for that stuff yet, although I guess it's a chicken-and-egg type of situation.
