Question All you slutz - let's see your transport.....

Bound to be other Gearslutz with an addiction for cars.

Got a couple of steeds on the Gogglehed ranch.

For lugging about (and Wifey's car) - an Insignia Estate.


My daily snotter is this - Porsche 996



What's everybody else running?

You mean there is a good chance of getting seasick when cornering?

Don't know what you mean. Experienced drivers don't have cornering issues.
It isn't a Porsche though, its a work truck.

The ladies love it, probably because it's a ladies car.

In Europe Cadillacs were famous for being so softly sprung and wallowy to drive that seasickness was a distinct possibility when driving on anything but a straight road (which we haven't got). :-)

That's funny. They should have come with a bottle of Gravol in the glove box.

No pic handy but my ride is a Kia cee'd. They don't sell them in North America, but for those who watched the British Top Gear a few years back when it was still Clarkson & co, it was the model they used as the Reasonably Priced Car after the Suzuki Liana bit it.

We have one iteration before that, a 328i from 1997. Great cars. Ours has almost 200 thousand kilometers on it and it's still perfect. Reliable, comfortable, a real pleasure to drive.

And I suppose you slutz are all riding with manual transmissions, right? You know, shifting gears and all!

I typically drive a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport (250k miles), but I'm paying for my better half's 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander.

The chances of me ever owning a manual again are zero and I haven't had one for nearly 25 years.

I rather wear out my fingers on my analogue modular than doing something completely pointless like changing gears in a car that is not on a racetrack.

On city traffic I'll concede that automatic is definitely better, but only there.

Once in a while I'll be crawling through one of the LA canyons at rush hour in the rain and wonder why I ever thought a clutch was cool. Last winter it rained way more than normal. I did way more than the normal amount of wondering.

Fortunately I don't have to comute these days, which I'd say it's double-fortunate because besides the fact that traffic sucks there's our public transportation system which is beyond awful. The city where I live isn't as big as LA but it's huge anyway with over 5 million people and the infrastructure doesn't help.

I've had one of those as well. E36 is slightly more reliable than the e46 actually, but I find the 46 a bit prettier. Either models are awesome cars though. Those straight sixes are some of the finest engines ever made.

I absolutely despise automatic transmissions. I hate the way the car feels disconnected from you somehow, like it has a mind of its own. It's also boring as hell imo.

Fixed it for ya!

With an automatic it is easy to control the the gearbox with your right foot and I have no idea why or how it could feel "like it has a mind of its own". Also manual is just annoying as f**k.

Seriously - driving manual cars now outside of a racing scenario is like saying "I hate progress and technology."

Personally I hate failing auto transmissions that won't change gear when needed, or are nigh on impossible to push start with a flat battery. Not to mention the auto option on my dmax was several thousand dollars more expensive.

Saying that, I do quite like toyota's CVT for windy roads in the countryside but it wasn't an option.
