Приветствую всех. Определился с тем какое авто брать. Так вот, подскажите через какого дилера лучше приобрести. Чтобы не было кидалова как с Kobe Commerce. А то нарыл инфу следующего характера:
"4 июля заключили договор с Kobe Commerce на покупку Honda Civic, —пишет клиент из Новосибирска. Предоплату в 145.000 рублей перевели нафизическое лицо (в договоре данные фирмы) со странной фамилией — МузыкаМаксим Владимирович. Фирма зарегистрирована во Владивостоке. Мы сталиждать авто. Информация поступала крайне противоречивая: то машина уНовосибирска, то еще на таможне, то ПТС высылать не хотят. Кормятзавтраками. С директором не соединяют. Одним моим знакомым несказанноповезло — машина пришла (настояли на некоторых изменениях в договоре: унас номер счета в договоре не совпадает с номером счета в платежке).Кстати, у них есть данные об этом самом Музыке. Если вопрос неразрешится в скором будущем, придется их обнародовать (а насколько язнаю, братка какого-то они обидели). И пока ситуевина имеет место быть— буду вести антипропаганду на самых популярных автофорумах России!" http://autolet.ru/articles/text/02_12_2008_13_00_51/
так вот, подобных вещей не хочется на себе прочувствовать. Поэтому поделитесь инфой о дилерах.

Доброго вечера всем. Собственно хотелось бы развить тему об авто, которые были утоплены. Зачастую слышал что для американского рынка - это норма. Но так как беру себе однозначно японца, хотелось бы узнать - там как с утоплениками? Натолкнули на эти мысли, инфа из статьи - http://autolet.ru/articles/text/28_11_2008_19_01_56/ . Но как всегда два противоположных мнения. У кого есть инфа по Японии в этом плане?

Слышал новость о том, что повышают пошлины на иномарки до 25-30%. Честно - я в шоке(с).


Вот интересно, на сколько у нас люди смогут к этому адаптироваться и переходить на отечественное авто?

5:10 pm - Polaroid GPS Navigation + Integrated DVD player for sale

Used only one week, this is the best navigation out there for the price. Features an LCD touchscreen with an integrated DVD player!!! I decided I don't use the GPS as much as I thought I would so I am going to get an in-dash player instead. I paid $560 in Target brand new and I am willing to sell for $450. We can arrange an auction on Ebay to make sure payment is verified and you receive your item. It is flawless and includes all accessories.

Comment for more information.

1:44 am - Curiosity killed the cat..........


I was just wondering if anyone who is a member here or who watches this comm is actually in New Mexico, USA. I only ask because I know a great place to get accessories and parts for you vehicles here in Albuquerque for good prices and for those of us who like to rebuild cars and really make them our own in every way possible this is definitely a plus!

Thought I'd just share the finding because I know how hard it is to get a good price on anything these days. Specially gas.....oy. So if you're in my neck of the US, give me a shout and I'll gladly share with you my discoveries in my personal adventures in playing with cars.

8:52 am - Design Project on the Jaguar XType


Hello People!

My name's Angeline and I'm a final year Mechanical Engineering student in the UK. Me and my mates are working on a design project for our final year group project. This MAY not be the right place to stick the entries in, but it just occured to me I could ask car experts/lovers like you for help! I would appreciate all the workable/constructive suggestions I can get.

(Please treat this seriously. Because it is causing a lot of stress just doing this project on top of my individual final year project and my computing assignment CFD. THIS IS A REAL PROJECT.)

My group project is to re-design/modify the bumper/front end of the JAGUAR X-Type to give better passive protection for pedestrians upon impact.

We've decided to modify the bumper, the bonnet (the hood), the windscreen with A pillars and the headlights/grille/license plate(hard points). The reason we are modifying those components is because we have identify them to be injury-causing factors for the pedestrians when hit at a driving speed of 5mph. (That's the speed that our car bumper is tested to and has to pass the standard tests).

Airbags in the front bumper and the bonnet springing up to cushion the head (as it hits the bonnet/hood) are all active systems and is not classified under my group's. (another group is working on the active protection bits).

(Engineering talk ahead:) We need several solution variants to get 3 concept variants and then decide the best among the 3 to deliver our design. We've been asked to follow the design process suggested by the book written by Pahl and Beitz.

Simply said, I need several ideas on what and how I can modify the front end of the car, keeping in mind manufacturing costs, repairability costs, and other issues/factors that would affect the marketability of the X-Type.

I really appreciate any help whatsoever. This project and my other assignments have kept me really busy that I have not been able to update my own blog, and I really do miss LJ. =( So this is kinda urgent!

Ok, now its official. The Lude is quick as hell. There is a device called a G-tech pro. It has been drag strip and dyno tested for accuracy and has proven itself over and over again. I know a guy named John who happens to own one. Last night we took the Prelude out and ran it with the G-tech. And it did not disappoint...

(stock specs)
200 flywheel HP
156 flywheel TQ

184WHP @ 7100RPM
135WTQ @ 7000RPM
0-60: 5.988 sec
1/4 mile: 14.158 @ 103 MPH
0-100: 13.791 sec
.877g at start.

To fill everyone in, I purchased a 2001 Honda Prelude 5spd last friday. And i haven't stopped smiling ever since. It's silver and it's bone stock. i'll post pics when I actually get some taken. Oh, and those quarter times would be slightly less at a strip because of the reaction time.

3:43 pm - Please don't hurt me!

Hi everyone!

I'm haizle and I'm new.

About me and my carCollapse )
I don't know much about cars, but I do know more than the average girl. I love my neon (although I really wanted a civic) and hope to do great things to her!

I am clueless about where to start with mods on a vehicle. Like I said, she's brand new so I don't need to fix anything. Does anyone have a suggestion? Wheels? Lights?

Oh, some jackhole at a rest stop on my way to Florida broke the front license plate frame of my car and I think he keyed it in two spots as well. Should I bother to get the frame replaced or get it taken off? And can someone recommend a nice, not too expensive place where I can get a paint job?

Thanks in advance!

I already ripped the seats out, and the old carpeting, and that's how I seen how badly the rust situation is...any help at this point will be more than appreciated, honestly.
Thank you,
