      Of their time: Bronze metallic cars

      Was it more of a 70s or 80s trend? I think it correlates with the trend of golden or bronze plated windows on office buildings in the 70s and the 80s. Here in Europe we have some mid 80s car...

      ^Yeah, I think the Mk3 is my favorite Golf, too. I particularly like their shape and styling, like the side creases they have. The Mk4 Golf looks too flat to the sides IMO. Thankfully, the Mk5 bought...

      It's real. I decided I'd like to buy a 90s car due to sentimental reasons (I grew up in the 90s and I remember a TV segment on German TV where there was a green MKIII that talked LOL). And the MkIII...

      Was the MKIII Golf really that bad?

      I see MkIIIs very often, they are everywhere in my home city and used as daily drivers. I would say based on that they have far longer longevity than the likes of Ford Escorts, Opel Astras, etc. In...

      Poll: I though I wouldn't but I like the MkIII way too...

      I though I wouldn't but I like the MkIII way too much, it's my favorite 90s car as it's the only 90s model that I still see very regularly in my city. Which means it's much more reliable than the...
    6. Any European (automatic) hatch from the 90s or the early 2000s for DD?

      I like 1993-2003 model year cars the most, but 2004-2006 are also OK. I like Peugeots, but old ones might have issues. Thing is I want a 90's/early 2000s hatch that looks cool, but with an auto box...

      Happy new year! I'd like to ask whether the 2001 Cabrio is any good? I like the Mk III shape better than the blob like one of the Mk IV, but I need a newer car. Would a 1997 Golf Mk III be a better...
    8. Any model years that you go for or avoid for non car-related/personal reasons?

      OK, so I've noticed that almost all the cars I like are model years 1992-2008. Those are the years spanning from my early childhood and up to and including my high school graduation year. I think one...
    9. Thanks to all of you for the advice! I guess I...

      Thanks to all of you for the advice! I guess I would avoid most of the visibly modded ones just in case. Where I live guys who do not even bother to remove the exterior mods are people very likely to...

      I'm an all or nothing person. Hence, I often upgrade quite late. I used XP in 2004-2013, Vista in 2010-2013 and 7 since 2013. I'll stay on W7 as long as possible. After that I'll most likely migrate...
    11. Why is the Android community so terrible?

      I have blocked all news websites on my computer. I find most people posting comments unbelievable. They bash everything, they use vicious insults. Especially now with the presidential elections. But...

      Seems like this scandal didn't matter one bit for the European buyer.
      I would most likely never buy a VW, but the reason is I just don't find them stylish enough (like a typical European I care what...

      Yes, especially Amsterdam is pretty annoying even for walking around. A driver is protected so a nutty or careless cyclist endangers only himself. However, when you have THAT many cyclists...
    14. Do you avoid tuned/modded cars when buying used?

      Would you buy a car from a person that likes tuning them? Would you trust the so-called boy racer type of person if you do not know them?
      Feel free to post your "I bought a lemon" story! ;)

      I...

      Along the loads of German cars in Eastern Europe you have loads of Peugeots, Citroens, Renaults, Fords, Kias, Hyundais, Skodas. If these sell that well, I cannot see where SEAT are failing. I am...
    16. Am I the only one who dislikes bicycles and cycling?

      I actually enjoyed it as a kid when I fist learned how to cycle. I had a BMX children's bike back then and saw cycling as a sport.
      But having moved to the Netherlands in 2014, I detest it. Here...

      OK, I know the French, the British and the Germans buy their national makes. Same goes for the Czech Republic and Skoda and Italians and Fiat I guess.
      But let's be less Western-centric here. What...

      Why don't SEAT cars sell well?

      I live in Europe and as a hatch and tiny car aficionado I love most little cars on offer here. But I've always wondered why even in countries where VW is huge people don't opt out for SEAT? I mean...

      It's good they retain the best bits of the Mk3 - the rear and the profile. :)

      How to beat Internet/forum addiction?

      It's really the only addiction I cannot get over. I've wanted and tried to quit foruming alltogether since at least 2010... but I'm still coming back to posting on forums. Somehow just reading seems...
