Car Talk Chat Room by Ikenna351(m): 12:10am On Jul 12, 2013
Hi all,

I realised there is a need for us to have a thread where we can say it very loud. Hence, the creation of this room.

In this room, we can derail as much as we want, discuss off topics, etc.

But please, no derogatory words, sales, adverts, spams or posting. Other than these, fire on!

*Note that this room is not for posting our normal car issues and seeking solutions for them. We have the entire section, outside this room, for that.

Moderator.

I am yet to fully grasp the regulations guarding this platform. I hope u know it is not possible to compare, argue, and discuss our car brands without talking of individual issues, etc.
All in all, it's nice to be here, weldone bro.

Well let me say something. I bought my camry in February and have been having cold feet driving it cos am just a beginner. But when I saw my pregnant sister inlaw who is about my age driving the same type of car with total ease, I vex jump into mine and started driving, short distances at first and mastery of reverse movement. I can say now that driving is fun. I dnt take the car to work cos of parking space but I jump into it every weekend and am loving it.

hi Ikenna!
been some time oh.
I think you should just allow the chat thread develop. I think I know what ur trying to do but leave the option open. Unless u wanna close down the chat thread and maintain those individual threads that serve as mini chats threads.
How have you been?

Lol! The baby is fine o!

I planned to travel to East 2 weeks ago when i commenced my Leave, but i had to cancel the trip to take care of a personal matter that needed urgent attention here in Abuja. Before that time, i was in a confused state. I couldnt choose which car to do the trip with. I even had to do tum-bum tum-bum. Lol! At the end, i choose the 505.

My daily driver, the D9, is a very quick car and more powerful than my baby, in terms of engine output. The fuel economy is very impressive.The other day, at 3k rpm on 4th & 5th gear on Abuja expressway, it was getting 8L/100 km. When i switched it to mpg, it got 39+ mpg. I was very impressed. This is a consumption some newer I4s dont even get, yet a 2000 model V6 could do that. But, the car could so too quiet for my liking on highspeed sometimes. Which was why i chose to do the trip with the 505. The 505 maynot be as fuel economical as the SV D9, but it gives one the feeling of the speed you do with its impressive noisy roar when on highspeed. It can be very fun, abeg! Funny enough, the engine torque of my Baby is more powerful than my SV D9 at low rpm. But what can i say, i love them both.

You can really be funny.
Why not just knock off the exhaust so you can get all the noise you want from the D9 grin grin
its ironic how the same car that has efficient fuel consumption and good speed is abandoned for a moaning old lady tongue tongue tongue... so when are you going East?

Have you forgotten that some guys prefer old ladies? grin

At least, my old Lion consumes only 70 Litres from Abuja to Enugu, 540 km, on 1 full tank, about 7k. So I don't think 7k is too much, considering the fun to catch on those hours on the highway. It average 22 mpg on highway.

Not sure when my next trip to East would be. It could be any weekend. I could just wake up one morning, face her nose to East and drive back the next 2 days. I do that often.

Why would you leave a wedding ceremony to go watch an exorcist? na you sabi sha.
The options are yours. I've never doubted the 505 though. The feel is heavenly and you can feel it returning your call for more power. am sure it's what you're addicted to. Those old cars were made never to get old.
