It also breaks the rule in my language, but q always makes the same sound as k, regardless if there's a u or not afterwards. There's a few exceptions.

Also if I recall the Qashqai is called Rogue in the US for the dumbest consumer base.

Every normalfag knows what a 4Runner, Civic, and Corvette looks like, and what their make is. Not many can do the same with a 323, E90, or A3. Even though for the past decade Mazda has tried to kill off the Miata name in America, everyone (that isn't some faggot who calls it an MX-5) still calls it that.

1c1588  No.17182


My language does not even have Q, W or Y…


I personally have no problem with numbers as car names. As long as you stick the year/generation/base somewhere in there. Audi A4 does not mean much, but A4 B6 is instantly recognizeable.

Mazda current naming scheme is a mess. While looking for the rear passenger light switch i had to go through a fucking catalog of older, different generation, different equipment tiers Mazda 323s, andi did not find my particular model. The local scrapyard had only one generation older 623 and stripped out older generation 323, the Lantis lookalike. And no, none of them had the same rear passenger light. They had one huge one between seat rows. And none of their generatios have even a definite name. VW group at least has the fucking B platform on which everything is glued on, and some 2 platforms for work trucks and vans.

And i am not paying for a new fucking rear passenger light switch, it's literally 2 centimeter small piece of shit thing that fell off when i was changing the bulb, and now i can't find it

On a related note, Alphanumerics.

I like names more, but I don't really care.

562b54  No.17199

Names by a wide margin. I'd rather own a Prelude, Mustang, Miata etc. Vs a 325i, GLC 300 etc. A car should invoke a feeling which the name aids with. A car named GTX 1070ti feels like soulless technology as it should.

Where would one learn skills to revive dead cars?

Is it possible to bring even scrap heap finds to working order with just your own skills and tools? Or is a car dead forever once it passes a certain point like for example a rusty chassis?

Pic is just for illustrative purposes, I don't think it's possible to revive that one at all, rip R5 Turbo…

CAD and 3D printing. No, really. That shit will revolutionize the restoration market by offering 99% accurate parts at a cheap price and immediate/ready availability. I've already seen small parts such as hubcaps and rear nameplates casted brand new for when the cars in question got too rare to source a replacement for, and when the technology improves we'll probably see more significant parts.

f22a22  No.17067


I doubt the technology will evolve beyond the practical point that it is in right now, and there is a small amount of parts you can replace with 3D printed ones.

Hubcaps, nameplates, light housings maybe.

Maybe even grills for some cars.

But anything that's part of the motor? Maybe individual components.

That has nothing to do with anything being discussed.


>Don't sage when the discussion is clearly far off topic.


>Porting the heads, lowering intake restrictions

Let's refer back to a previous post.

17153 "No shit if it has more airflow it can run better."

>using an intercooler with ice on it

So I get accused of being stuck in the 70's but the 10's are perfectly fine, I'll tell you right now I'm not gonna dump ice into my car before driving it.

Also while I've seen plenty of turbo setups with no intercooler I've never seen or heard of an engine that has an intercooler but no turbo because cold air intake exists.


That's just a tube, has already been done for decades as an aftermarket mod/ factory option, and isn't gonna increase the density by much driving down the road.

They're shit, your turbo setup is very inefficient if you don't include intercooling

I knew a guy that imported a GTR from Canada. He blew the engine and couldn't afford to fix it. Now it just sits there. Make sure you have money for parts since it might be harder to work on the car.

Mazda is abandoning the zoom zoom for the ultimate leasing machine, they put more money towards luxury material than luxury engines. They make signature models, not speed models. I don't consider them luxury either but that is what they are trying to change their image to. It just isn't believable for me because even an economy car shouldn't struggle to pull its own weight but their CUVs are close to that. I also don't consider Volvo luxury for the same reason. Luxury shouldn't mean an engine chosen for economical reasons. The engine should be more than what is necessary, that is why it is considered a luxury.

It looked like they were taking slightly more time than is polite to cross the road. And by slightly i mean "holy shit, i have seen people with 2 broken legs move faster". Also not a single person seen hit in those clips was on a designated road crossing. So the most you can pin on the driver is a whoopsie, small accident.
