Husky

My First Car!

46 posts in this topic

Hey guys,you probably won't believe this but my dad just came home with a present.The car keys to my first car! For passing my grade and staying out of faguliciouse trouble. just now at this moment at this time, he just bought me a Acura R.l 5.30 . It's perfect for a first time drivers. Let me point out what its got:

- Everything is stock except the radio, and engine.

- Brand new leather seats

- Clean Carpets

- New windows

- New Engine

- New Tires.

Man this car is freek'n sweet!!! I havn't driven it yet. But its back in the Acura dealer for repair. The only thing thats messed up about it is its automatic trans-mition, brakes and lights. Man this is the greatest moment of my teen years. By the way here's a picture:

This car right here in this pic is not my car, I got it off of wikipedia. Well Husky's version of the car is the same colour, well everything that I've just said looks like this. When I get a hold of my car I'll post a picture of it in the correct topic to post your vehicle. Yay no more asking for mom and dads car keys!

Let me know what you think K thx bai!!

That is a very nice car. It seems like it's GREAT for a first car! Wait til you feel what it feels like to DRIVE your OWN car. Oh man, it's liberating, it's exciting. My girlfriend just experienced her first car. She got a 2004 Kia Optima LX. It's a nice ride. B)

Damn straight, welcome to the Honda/Acura family ;] I've always liked those cars. Lower it and put some nice wheels on it. Not like super racerboy or rice, something baller. Work, Volk, SSR, Advan etc.

Congrats Husky!I love Acura's, especially the RSX, how much does it go?

Man, i was excited too when my dad told me when i get mine drivers license, i would get to drive the Lancer(nope, no Evo here, 2008 Lancer)

My brother got a Mazda RX-8 that costed him all of his savings, unfortunately, i can't take pics of it cause he's not here with it.

But one thing fails in that car, it's automatic transmission, it fucks up when you're going in reverse and trying to go in 1st, also it doesn't give you the feel of driving a car.

sweet.

is that a 2002 model?

thats a pretty nice car to have for your first car, especially that your parents got you one :) i think ill have to save up for my own ... :( damn.

lol sherman, those wheels will look a bit weird on that car :P

volk te37? ahahahaha. those wheels will be pretty expensive too man. Just save up and buy a nice stereo (good headunit, some nice splits for the front, and a 12 or 15 (( or 2 12's)) for the boot. and some 6x9's in the parcel shelf :P you can probably get a decent stereo with sub and everything for under 1k aud so $500 usd u can get a nice one.

Ehh, you can buy used :P I'm on a forum where a lot of people have stuff like that on their Accord's, so eh. its not out of the ordinary, for me haha. I wouldn't think twice about dropping a grand or two on just wheels if I could swing it, they do make a car

Cool. I may also be getting a Honda soon, will also be my first, yes I know I'm several years late in getting a car but you all know I'm a lazy bastard :P

Almost got a '99 Civic the other day but some tool had already bought it when we phoned up and asked to view it :(

It wasn't a Type R though, not sure I could justify the insurance costs on one of those anyway, since too many dickheads modify the fuck out of them and crash them etc. insurance costs a fucking bomb.

BTW, WTF is the deal with Acura in the USA. Aren't they just re-badged Honda's? Do they actually change shit? I mean they look exactly the same to me. What a waste of time. Surely would be cheaper just to import Honda's as they are, like every other country in the world, no?

Hey, congrats! Nice ride man!

It would probably be even better if you pimped it out a bit with some NOS! :awesome:

Everyone seems to be a Honda fan here! Honda cars will always be my first choice when I can get one. :)

They're pretty much just rebaged Hondas, yeah. I'm not too sure what the deal with them is. It's kinda like the whole Toyota/Lexus deal. There's nothing wrong with a Honda... as long as you don't pretend its fast when its really not :P haha. Mine will never be fast.. maybe quick in the future, but it'll never see anything like 10's or 11's at the 1/4th.

WRX - I totally forgot about the year, its a 1996. Ah, my parents just throw me random gifts, like that sidekick I was complaining about last year.

Steam - From what I've heard the mechanic say, it goes from 0 - 80 in about 17 seconds. Very, very slow. So thats why I'm just going to change the transmission.

Chris - Acura's are nice and Honda's are the top ranked vehicles. I don't know why though. Acura's are basically for the Middle Class.

Sherman - I might change the rims, they do look kinda hideous.

Who thinks about the paint?

We... DO... have Hondas. There are a few Acuras that don't look like any Honda's I've ever seen.

Acura is a high-end Brand of Honda, much as Mercury is a high-end brand of Ford, or Infiniti is a high-end brand of Toyota. But the cars between each brand are different in many ways.

Go to Europe / Asia. You'll see Hondas that make you think Acura :P

@Husky: It's not gonna be a quick car, haha. Big and heavy. Why're you changing the transmission out, is it crapping out?

It looked like he said it was a problem because it was an automatic :P I don't think they even came out with a manual trans in that car :P Even if, it's not gonna make it THAT much quicker. Auto to manual is a pain in the ass anyway, I'm working on that in mine :/

Wut!? Manual! Fuck no! The transmission craps it self. I mean it just doesn't work properly. The engine needs to be changed. Do you think its a bad idea to change it to a faster engine on a 13 year old car?
