I like cars, blood of my enemies and those two combined. My favourite car of all time is a weaponized Eclipse 2G GSX. No licence because i ran over too many people. No car because it broke.
On my way to get my licence and a Golf 4 VR5 4Motion.
19th September 2017
I’m starting to get used to it, but it’s so uncomfortable to drive too. The stupid carpet gets caught up in the pedals. And it’s the original carpet even.
I don’t like anything about it, really.
It had a tendency to throw you face first into the steering wheel when changing gears.
Corsa C is still my favourite. So smooth to drive. So easy. So relaxing.
In this pos i’m really tense, i barely pay attention to the road because the s##t wants to stall with any occasion.
Yeah, so, i don’t think i want to get a diesel first car.
Didn’t want anyway, but now i know i really wanna stay away from them… Unless it’s something really cool like a Ford Mondeo ST TDCI or a Golf IV TDI GTI, but not even those really.
Also, who says it’s easier to surf the clutch in a diesel? Wtf. It’s waaaaay easier to do it in a petrol car.
I used to start in the 2nd gear in the Corsa.
And even the instructor said to change gears slower. It was that easy to change gears.
In the A160 (basically A220) i need to go all the way down with the clutch, simultaneously pull up from the gas pedal, all of this done slowly for the car to not pull an engine brake on me (which it does 90% of the time).
What annoys me the most is that i can’t go fast in this one.
It’s way too hard and s##ty to drive to be able to pay attention around me at a speed higher than 30kmh.
I hope i can switch that car to something else.
I decided to start looking for a Jetta 4 VR5, but quickly realized there is no 4Motion variant of it, which is pretty weird, imo, considering the Jetta 4 is basically the same thing as the Golf 4.
Besides that, Jetta 4 Wagon doesn’t have 4Motion either, although Golf 4 Variant is based on the Jetta 4 Wagon.
And even more than that, the Jetta 4 Wagon has the VR5 and the GTI engines, but the Golf 4 Variant doesn’t.
It simply doesn’t make any sense.
I just thought of buying a Jetta 4 VR5 at some point and swap the front end with a Golf 4 one, because i want a Golf 4 Sedan.
Like, everybody makes the Jetta 4 Hatchback or Cabrio, but swapping the front end of a Golf 4 with the Jetta 4 one.
But i haven’t seen anyone do it the other way around.
