Hi crunchyroll time poster. I need a recommendation for a car since I'll be starting college early in the fall =]


Type of car: Sporty, economy
Price range: around $15 000 - $25 000 is max.
New or used: New
Manual or automatic: Preferably automatic.........since I can't drive a manual tears.gif
Years of driving: almost a year
Cars currently suggesting: Genesis coupe, Mazda 3, Mitsubishi, Civic or w/e anything that look sporty
Other: Preferred a 2 door but 4 door is also good dry , navigational system, not that costly on gas.

Any car that look sporty and fall into the price range is good enough, and a navigational system preferably *don't want to end up lost .......or I can stick to a map, or figure out how to use the dam nav on my g1.


Honda Civic EX-L Starting at $20,855 then get the navigation option at the dealership for like 2-3 grand more.

Hmmm, I'm sitting here thinking for like 20mins now and I have no clue. I just went through this myself about a week ago x_X

I'd rather get a hyundai genesis since they are rwd rather than the civic which is fwd... Rwd is more sporty also the genesis creates greater horsepower and the twin turbo model creates similar horsepower with the 370z and are often compared with eachother. All of that and it still fits your budget.

coilovers tein,tanabe ? $1000+
before you get your paint job make sure that your body is clean. ^.^ $1000+ unless you know someone.
quick release ( too prevent your car from getting stolen kinda ) $250 for everything.
shift knob ( the nismo silver one or the long dildo one haha) $50-100.
jdm bumper and wing, ( make sure you get them first before the paint, so you dont have to paint two times.) $idk haha

goodluck and keep us posted on the kouki.

I hope you're talking about when you're gonna go park into a lot like at the store and such. The easiest way, at least for me is when I see the empty space, make a big turn into it so you can also straighten out without reverse.

Ex. (I was bored with nothing to do)

Go past the parking park you intend to park at, 1 parking spot past is enough. Reverse and turn in. Easiest way is to have the parking spot on your driver side, and you can watch your mirror as you reverse in.

Make sure no one is behind you when you do it, because they'll just take your parking spot when you go past it.

Everytime u buy a new vehicle theres a hand book (owners manual) where the maintenace schedule is set generally base on the odometer reading or months of use whicever comes first. If u dont know ur car well yet then better read it, all things u need to know to operate all functionalities, accessories, tires, what to do in case of emergecies not to mention towing break down car are all there.

I presume everybody agrees to LemonPanda practice makes perfect. However, when u do become a very good driver dont be a teenage brat reckless driver.

im considering your asking about parallel parking. Parking in between in line cars. Im not that much good in explaining but ill try, first align your car parallel side by side to the first car ( your parking behind that first car), second start slowly backing up ( caution is required make sure your clear and check all blind spots). If your maneuver seems not right try it again u can do lock turn. If u manage to that then third u wanna set ur parking straight then u can do it driving back and forth til its right.

Practice makes perfect.

By experience if u cannot afford to replace your car yearly - JUST DONT BUY CONVERTIBLES.

Speaking of parallel parking, here's a video for front wheel drive parallel parking ;D
(Not recommended but for fun)
