The premium and exclusivity of any mercedez benz cant be rivaled bro.

Even plastic premium pass plastic,you cant compare the plastic that TECNO will use on their device,with that of SAMSUNG.
I can only support him picking RX because of maintainance.

Happy sunday to you bro!

Happy Sunday, man.

MORE LUXURY: GLA.

If i'm to advice you on the ride to pick,i will choose LEXUS RX.






Loool, the GLA is neither better nor more luxurious than an RX. What even is this.

I drove a Friend's 2016 Accord EXL v6,omo I couldn't talk. The interior,the power and everything abt it beats that of Camry.

May be tempted to ditch my Camry for an accord

Thay generation Accord was just a lot better than the Camry.

I'm 28 and looking to get my first car. My budget is 2.5M to 5M max. I would like the gurus here to advise me on the car to go for. I am looking at Mercedes Benz or Lexus

Thank you

Forget Mercedes and Lexus.

Look at a 2012 Acura TL.
Or a 2016 Accord.

Good morning all. I am about paying for this 2009 Nissan Maxima SV from Canada. Please, is it a good one, should I proceed or run?

Why not just buy an Accord or something.

So you’re trying to make us understand that tinted windows make cars hotter?

You get time. Tint actually keeps cars cooler, no idea what that guy is talking about.

Befor even if am at 30MPH and pedal to metal it will speed up and overtake any car I set as target , trust me now if I pedal ,it will just reach 40MPH or it will be just be looking at me like mumu.

Could be transmission issues, could be a powertrain issue that means your car isn't delivering the power it should. Take it to a technician.

Good Evening All. Please I have question.

U know that situation when u want to quickly over take a car ,, within a short period of time and in a tight place or when u want to overtake a trailer. Then u press your throttle with force and to the end , the can will behave like it's over charged and speed up so quick to give u turbor like speed, I think it is called TurborCharged.

My car can not do it again.

I removed it from Over drive still the same thing what could be the problem thanks .

I really miss that now I can hardly overtake kekebus ,

Toyota Matrix 2004

You're referring to kickdown, where your car downshifts to the lowest possible gear depending on load. Keep your car in drive, remove any funky settings you used on the transmission, and try it. I'd say coast at 60 km/h, then pedal to metal.

The major mechanical difference between the two is that the gs350 is an awd while the Avalon is fwd. Other than that, the mechanical difference is not too much.

What I would like to know is why a special clamp down on fully tinted cars while driving and if anyone has experienced it.


Also are there different rules in different states?

Mention your state when you respond

My car lets virtually no light in. Anambra. They stop for it, but I have my ways.

Good morning bro, please I need your input between this two cars, I'm trying to buy car but don't know which one to choose between this my two preferential cars.

2013 Toyota Avalon
2013 Lexus GS350
They are of the same price bracket, which one from ur own perspective is good

The GS is superior by far. But also quite a bit more expensive to own.
Car Talk / Re: Can I Swap A 2008 Lexus IS350 Engine To A 1989 Nissan Bluebird? by HeavenlyBang(m): 8:23pm On Jul 06
Timblogga:
Hello all, I have a 1989 Nissan Bluebird in my village, and I have been thinking of building my own dream “classic” car.
So it’s a 1989 4cyl Manual tranny car.
I will be installing android navigator and a whole lot of other stuff. My main concern is with the engine upgrades and adaptability considering the car is a manual gear, I want to know if the IS350 engine can be adapted to it successfully. Thanks

The fact that you have to ask this means you're nowhere near equipped for it.

Just got a c300 2010 from USA, is it advisable I raise the car a bit? I will also like to know the recommended oils for servicing brake and power steering inclusive. Do I also need to buy any stuff to mix fuel for the car?

Generally, what are the maintenance tips for the car?

Yo. I had a similar issue with my car, which is a pretty low coupe.

I just used thicker tyres on the front, and I rarely ever scrape on anything. Don't raise ride height by messing with your suspension. Buy thicker tyres. They'll help protect those flimsy stock wheels too.

speedfreak:
Hey fam,
So I'm lowkey in the market for a new car, I have been considering the tri star brand (Mercedes benz) for a while since I've always been a JDM fanatic(still think Honda's are Gods gift to man), I wanted something German that wouldn't break the bank, moved to lagos so a BMW is out of the question, have a thing for Audi's but I cant afford an rs7 yet so Mercedes seemed like a perfect fit. Didn't want the regular c300 since it's pretty much everywhere and I couldn't stretch to a 2013 model budgetwise. Until saw this blacked out c300 or c350 coupe on 3rd mainland yesterday and I knew I just got to have it, got on jiji and instagram to at least have an idea of what it was going to cost me but apparently the coupe model is pretty rare besides I had always wanted a benz coupe since I saw heavenlybangs black beauty, pretty sure the e350 is out of my range tho.
so I'm creating this post to ask if anyone has an early model c300 coupe 2008 to 2011 for sale, preferably toks in black or gray, located in lagos or environs. Budget is just below 4m. The one I posted below is a 2013 i want similar just an earlier model.

No. The W204 didn't have a coupe model until the facelift in 2012. There's no earlier model.

Ladipo cannot fix that car. That body you see is not plastic but carbon fibre. The same type of material that's used in building formula one cars.
No mechanic in naija can fix that car, it has to be returned back to Maranello.

I'm pretty sure Ferrari mostly uses an aluminum chassis.

Hello good evening,

My wife is now using the 2016 accord, it is still a very good car with no issue as it was accident free and a single owner with low miles carfax verified.
No plan to get rid of the honda atleast for the next few years. I am a Honda accord person, have had 2002, 2008, 2013 and now 2016 but I just want to try something.
I initially wanted the 2015-2016 C300 but I gather that particular engine is a mistake and the C300 which is a V6 is too expensive for the price I am willing to pay, that was why I decided to step down to the 2013-2014 C300 or C350.

I think the engine in the 2013 C300 is same engine in the C350, W212, GLK, just that the one in the C300 was slightly detuned from the 302hp.
Yes.

Good day Ma'am. I have a 2012 Ford Focus that I just repossessed after being away for my PG studies. I noticed that when the car is idle and you engage the transmission in drive or reverse, there is this intermittent long vibrating kind of sound that comes out of the car. Sound continues when car is being driven and it's in first year but goes away once it changes to the second gear. I also noticed that the transmission fluid is way overfilled when I check the dipstick. Do you think I will be good to go if I drain and guage the transmission fluid or I'm looking at a bigger issue here? The car changes and drives fine. Thanks

Lol, that generation Focus is notorious for having a totally useless transmission.
