    Debating buying a clean, well-maintained 2000 540i with the six speed stick. Thoughts? Fuck fuel economy.
    Depending on price of parts in your area for it, go for it. Maintenance might be expensive though and yeah, fuel economy.

    Might be getting a '02 Volkswagen Passat GLS with 100k miles

    Could prob get it for around 5500 since I know one of the owners of the dealership and he said it would need around $500 in repairs which he would take care of. This'll leave me with around 2-3k to put in mods for the car.

    I'm mostly worried about the electrical system of them. I've heard they're mostly trash, but at the same time I've heard they're not a bother. WUTDO!?

    My dad has a '97 540i, and the repair fees are ENORMOUS for it. Fuel economy sucks too. Fun to drive.

    If a car sits for 2 years with gas in the tank, will the tank rust?

    Last time i checked unless the fuel has water in it, there's nothing to rust the tank with. Don't think gasoline has any of those properties.

    Edited:

    The gas won't be very good though...all the molecules seperatin n stuff.

    You should just spend more on a better car.

    Just be sure to flush out all the gas, because as Justin said, after 3 months, the gas becomes old gas, starts to smells nasty,slowly gets a brown coloring, and is not very good for your engine.

    Speaking of which, I've seen some nasty old gas in the Gas Boy tanks there was at one outfitting camp I worked at this summer on the anticosti island, oh god that thing was nasty, we were out of gas for the trucks, quads, chainsaws, electricity, wasn't cool, we had to run after gas

    I know that feeling.. My RC car decided to fly into a curb after i spent $100 on it, getting it running. That's why i am fixing it again. It did that against my will though, it lost signal.

    I just thought of the scene from Top Gear where Richard Hammond is like "But mine is better because... pop-up headlights"

    But...
    "Nope. Pop-up headlights."

    Because I need something that isn't a piece of shit single cam, something fuel injected, something with more common parts, something a bit more comfortable for someone my height.

    BMW 330i with 161k miles starting at $6,500. I'll be testing it tomorrow and assuming it's in good or better condition is it worth it? What can I haggle it to?

    If you got plenty of money for maintenance, get it. 161k miles is probably a bit much, you can try to haggle off a couple hundred dollars

    Alright, what do you guys think of Oldsmobiles? I saw this:

    http://richmond.craigslist.org/cto/2805321503.html

    Its hard to find different cars in my price range (preferably under $2k). I hate going to school (12th Grade) and being around town and seeing shit tons of people my age driving old civics and tauruses and cherokees. So anything different is cool to me, plus look at those door handles. I also don't have any idea how much fixing the EGR Valve or a coolant temp sensor would cost.
    "I just want to find a newer car" = Sick of this unreliable car, I'm gonna sell it.
    I know your budget is limited but a car not known for reliability, of old age with very high mileage? Wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

    Me and my dad are looking at cars right now, I can't drive in his current car so we need to change (can't upkeep 3 cars, too expensive and no parking space).

    Went out today for the first time looking at cars.
    I must have gone through like fucking 10 cars before I found one where I could get my legs into a good position (really, really long legs, some cars I couldn't even get into with steering wheel all the way up and chair all the way back, you can tell they're designed by short Japanese engineers).

    Eventually, I tried a Suzuki Swift (1.3L 2006) pretty much as a joke, and it was bloody perfect.
    The steering wheel went up high enough and center console was so small and to the right that it didn't get in the way like in a lot of cars.

    Anyone know of other cars with a similar design?
    I'm looking in the moves-and-works-and-doesn't-need-repairs-in-a-long-while price-range (10,000€ and down)
    For people that don't live in Finland, we're talking Punto/Xsara Picasso price-range here.

    Edited:

    I don't see what's funny about a person with really long legs looking for a car.

    I was more funny-ing at "Xsara picasso" price range. Because I own one
    What's wrong with the swift? I like them.

    Also, I think I have found my car:

    I simply LOVE it.
    And 1400 insurance is very appealing.

    How that 0.6L engine with an autobox will handle pulling a bit of audio gear though is something I'll have to try.

    I REFUSE to buy a Deawoo matiz.
