  1. Hi all, As the title says, I've got a fair few cars in mind for my next buy, the issue is - I want to make sure its worth it. I currently drive a 2012 Ford Focus Zetec S 1.0 - 125hp manual (on HP) as my first car, and have been driving for over 2 years now. After putting around 60k miles on it, I have noticed that it does not feel as quick, or as smooth as I once thought it was (Due to driving experience, not mechanical faults) and I'm looking to upgrade. My top choice right now would be the 218d auto, as its cheapest on insurance, cheapest and cheapest on PCP (I'm looking to go down PCP route now knowing how quickly I get 'bored' of what I'm driving, got 'bored' of my current car after a year, though I do still love it), however I do want it to be a rather significant upgrade, and the 218d only seems to have 30 odd more horsepower. My question is, would the fact its an auto cause it to feel significantly faster than my car? For example the 0-60 of my car is 11.3 seconds, but do I do it in that? Probably not haha- whereas the 218ds 0-60 is 8.2 seconds, and its more likely that I'd be able to achieve close to it due to it being an auto. My next question is, if it would not feel significant, would an older 225d or a even older C220 be worth the jump, considering it would be around £100 extra a month in insurance? (I'm lucky enough that a car is my only monthly necessary outcome, so am happy spending the extra, but obviously want to avoid it if possible). I have factored in convenience, economy etc, just after the performance aspect, with this, a 90hp fiesta and a 108 being my only I don't have much experience with 'nicer' cars haha If you have any other sub 8.5 second (0-60mph), coupe/saloons, feel free to advise! Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello everyone! I would be very grateful if you took just 7 minutes of your day to answer the questionnaire on the link below on autonomous vehicles. This study is about whether autonomous vehicles can impact our daily lives. Your participation is extremely important and relevant to my study! Thank you https://qfreeaccountssjc1.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0MR5uT4hFcpEBV3

  5. Ok sooooo heres what i got going on... I just purchased a 95 cutlass supreme s series with 65k on the engine from my grandmother about two days ago, now the engine is stock 3.1 v6 and well im 20 and like to go fast... I know swapping parts on a 3.1 sounds like a waste of time but im bored so why not. My buddy Andrew mentioned researching into the cavz34 because it was the "performance" engine from back then to see if there are any crossover parts available but i have no idea where to start so any help will do with parts or other forums i could look into. I just wanna give her some balls yk. Thanks
  6. Hey i was hoping someone could help me figure out a slight performance issue. So i noticed some days my 2013 v6 automatic Camaro has a good amount of power while acellerating. When i give it some gas it goes up in RPM easily or downshifts quickly. But some days i hit the gas expecting the same thing but it requires me to step on the gas even further than usual to get the same power. Its like it wants to stay in the gear its in until you give it more gas. The car runs near perfect and the problem is subtle. In fact i often forget im not getting the right power until im driving and feel that burst of power from nowhere. It seems like if i rev the car to 4k or 5k, after that it drives much faster on subsequent acceleration. Its like it just wakes up. My initial thoughts are that something may be getting clogged until i give it a good rev and lossen up the fuel flow or airflow. I have a washable K&N filter and i try to keep it clean. Not sure if maybe this is the fuel filter getting clogged? Fuel pump issue? Maybe an airflow problem? I have experienced this issue on and off for a few years. Any help is appreciated!
