Yeah. I remember a few years ago my mrs was contemplating a Land Rover evoque. She was easily convinced not to take that route and thank...

Yeah I guess if those things are important to a buyer. However that gap is fast closing especially in the last 10 years. Think Lexus,...

As I said in the OP. When spending $100k plus on a car I understand, I get it. I’m talking about the mainstream, why would someone choose...
25/01/2022 - 14:13
Why would I still be considering a GTI. I got the i30 N instead. The pros of the i30 N were greater than the pros of the GTI. Namely the...
25/01/2022 - 12:00
Ok fair enough. Me personally I wouldn’t touch the Jetta with a ten foot pole, yeah the Camry would be more expensive upfront but very...

Hahaha. Similar fallacy to getting ripped. The only people impressed at the gym were other bros. I did a diet and bodybuilding comp back...

Since when I’m accusing someone that got an M4 as a poser. I just mentioned that I would happily buy one myself. Secondly I would never...
24/01/2022 - 01:40
Yeah there are examples of some that last decades. The thing also to remember back in the 70s and 80s the culture was different, it...
24/01/2022 - 00:02
Sorry I mustn’t have been clear enough in OP. My purchase of the stinger was based against similarly priced competitors and also...

If that was your reasoning for choosing that particular then no you’re not necessarily just choosing that car just for the badge. However...

Asian cars aren’t perfect. But the evidence is as a general their quality and reliability is a step above the Euro counterparts. It’s...
23/01/2022 - 15:11
A new car is always going to be miles ahead of an older car. The finish the feel etc. Comparing a new car to your current old car no matter...
23/01/2022 - 13:26
Yeah that was just an exercise by Aston Martin to get around the UK emissions regulations.
22/01/2022 - 21:50
Yes they did. Remember the X class? The prettied up Nissan Navara. Which started at $80k. Look how that turned out. If that wasn’t buying...
22/01/2022 - 21:07
Yes. When they’re are the high end variants. $100k plus range. Would it be the same for base models?
22/01/2022 - 19:40
I’m not a mechanic or work in the industry so yeah I wouldn’t have the detailed knowledge but just going by what’s publicly available...
22/01/2022 - 19:36
So would a base A200 be better to drive than a Mazda 3 Astina? And yes I have. Yeah they do bring a really high level of performance and...
22/01/2022 - 18:28
But there is evidence that shows that in terms quality at least the euro cars are inferior. Just look at the survey results for owner...
22/01/2022 - 17:58
Yeah I guess it’s whatever your preference is. But rationally speaking is a base A class gonna be that much better than a Mazda 3 Astina...
22/01/2022 - 14:32
Where would you draw that distinction? For me it has to be AMG anything below that there are just so many better options.
22/01/2022 - 13:02
I know that there are Asian shitboxes. But as a whole on the macro level the Asian cars just last longer. And obviously the more highly...
22/01/2022 - 12:12
Purely from an anecdotal point of view, I had mate that owned a 2005 Yaris, he abused that thing to no end, you couldn’t see the floor...
22/01/2022 - 12:07
Yeah but from my point above. Even if you didn’t maintain an Asian car it’ll still likely run fine whereas with a Euro you’d almost...
22/01/2022 - 10:34
Yeah that’s the vibe that I get. There’s this notion superiority even when they’re just shitboxes that have depreciated off a cliff....
22/01/2022 - 10:28
Ok maybe I get your point compared to the Cx5. What about the Genesis GV70? If you look that it’s very much on par. And again spec for...
22/01/2022 - 09:52
Agree there. You knew what you were getting into and was prepared for it. Isn’t it interesting though the point you mentioned. If you...
22/01/2022 - 02:39
I get your point when it comes to the higher end. But in the mainstream are they really that much better? Would a GLC offer that much more...
22/01/2022 - 02:32
Not with the Euro cars. Even when you stick to the service schedule to the absolute T it still has major failures. Whereas with some...
22/01/2022 - 01:59
Well the thing is I have a 2021 Kia Stinger GT. I was looking at en equivalent Euro and couldn’t justify it, the C43 and 340i x drives...
22/01/2022 - 01:37
Interesting. However the work there I don’t believe is major, things that you would expect with age although ten batteries seems a bit...
