Nissan took all the 'drives like a videogame' teasing the GTR gets and ran away with it. Awesome!

Jalopnik article has a (machine?) translation of instructions to activate:

1) Turn the ignition on 2) Start a car 3) Activate the right turn signal for three blinks 4) Two click the trip odometer reset twice 5) Push the clutch five times 6) Rev the engine to 2000 RPM while turning on the left turn indicator

mahal ba OEM spark plugs sa Toyota casa? Wala ako makita na Denso w16exr-u/NGK bpr5ey plugs para sa revo ko. Yung OEM meron resistor yung nasa mga auto supply wala. Yung Bosch naman na meron resistor 1.0mm ang gap eh 0.8mm lang dapat

Bumili ako dati ng plugs sa Mitsubishi casa, hindi naman masyado nagkalayo ang price sa autosupply at El Dorado.

Had the same dilemma, decided that the Mazda 3 is better (although the missus saw the CX5 and will get that instead). It just looks better and more refined than the civic. My only caveat with the mazda 3 is that the new one is coming 2019 while the civic is guaranteed for much longer.

Lantis! I remember the first time I saw one of those was along McKinley. Was driving toward BGC for something but I ended up just following the Lantis for a while lol.

Didn't realize the Mazda 3 is now 4 years old. Still looks super fresh IMO.

Lantis is one of my dream cars in college, that one above is owned by the proprietor of Big Berts. He said he got it originally for P60k, but the parts are hard to find.

Maganda yung 3, masikip lang sa likod.

the current 3 and 2 is tight in the back especially in the middle.  but the front seats (especially the driver's) are really great.

showed some n00bs the way around the "tumana mountain pass" ... haven't done this in a while and i guess the extra grunt does help especially when passing them at unusual/unexpected spots.

Question:  To those who owns multiple vehicles.  What's your key holder solution?  Do you have all in one key holder? Seperate?

I tried to get all the keys on one keychain, it's too bulky (i put my keys inside my pocket), in the end I just separated them, and have a bowl on a cabinet near the door and all keys goes in there, just get the key for the car I'm using for the day.

Separate. Mahirap since my parents also use either cars. Its also a pain if you lose all the eggs in one basket.
