    Yeah, my problem was getting it going. I just don't like the concept of buying a car I'd have to learn how to drive
    Well it only took like one day of practice in my car for me to learn, teaching myself.

    Like I said before, 850 / S70 turbo

    230hp, 5 seats, don't attract attention, have mod support, not a civic.

    If that's the case, aim for an auto. Driving a manual is easy as shit, but if you have no aspiration to learn, and don't much care about cars; there is no point.

    The engine will be fine, the gearbox will be in bits though
    If you consider spun bearings and bent valves to be fine.

    I wouldn't say I have no aspiration, it's just not at the top of my list.

    I should mention that I would like to avoid doing work myself, I don't have the proper space/tools for it.

    I completely understand about not wanting to buy a car that already needs repairs. Like Second Gear said, just try some cars on and see what fits you.

    I wouldn't mind having a bit of repairs done, like on that Honda. I do have a buddy that can do all that for pretty damn cheap. I don't give a shit about moddability or easy access to the parts inside the engine block, because unless in case of emergency I don't really want to take a wrench to it.

    If I want to work on a car, I want to do like a complete rebuild of a classic or something.

    All he says is wrong is the alarm circuit is fucked, the ride is kinda bouncy and the exhaust leaks.

    So it's not like a tranny replacement or anything else major. I think it'd be a good thing to invest in.

    Edited:

    What about this guy?

    Looks a lot more icky though

    That's personal taste there, almost identical cars. But that hood is silly.

    I could live with it, but like I said, it's a taste thing. If the hood doesn't bother you it's still a good deal. And it's a true Si.

    I'm the opposite. I think old cars are underpowered and useless while manuals are just primitive.

    Came across a diesel motorbike last night. Pulled up next to a guy at the lights and could hear it clattering, had to ask him whether it was a diesel or a bit rough which I thought could have pissed him off a bit but turns out it was a diesel. Then the lights changed and he disappeared in a huge cloud of smoke.

    Surely a diesel kinda defeats the point of a motorbike? But he must be getting some crazy high mpg.

    There was a lot of experimentation and conversions during periods of war, to make it easy to supply fuel for all the vehicles (as tanks and such are diesel)

    Also, referring to earlier in the thread. Who the hell needs a tachometer to know when to shift. My car doesn't even have one

    Even if I'm driving a car with a tachometer I never look at it - I never looked at it while learning. Surely you can shift just by the feel of the power output and also the sound?

    That's true to a certain extend but I've found when you're shifting right on the redline it helps to have a tach in order to get it right without hitting the limiter which'll slow you down. But for every day driving you don't really need one.

    Track T-800CDI has an 800 cc three-cylinder CDI common rail turbo diesel engine developed by Mercedes especially for the motorcycle, and has a fuel consumption of only 2.4 L/100 km

    The Track Diesel motorcycle produces 45 hp (34 kW) and 100 Nm (74 lbfft) torque in between 1,800 and 4,500 rpm, delivering a top speed of about 160 km/h (99 mph) and acceleration from 0100 km/h (062 mph) in 6 seconds
    Doesn't sound bad at all
