New vehicle approaching?

I was talking to my brother about all kinds of vehicles and he casually mentioned, that he propably could buy moped for a very low price and of course I got interested in. So now it looks like that I will start also writing about that project, as you have seen, my Citroen is not the best one to write about, as it isn't the most interesting one and it ain't older car which needs constant repairs or anything, so talking about other project would be alot more interesting to you. So, if I get it, it will be Derbi Senda 50, so what are your suggests about what I should do to it? What I understood, it's basic looking, so painting it and adding decals? Buying 70cc cylinder kit for it? For what purpose? For driving on ice or just for sale? So please, leave a comment, I'd be happy to see some comments on this blog :)

What happent?

So it seems there has been a month without a single post. Damn. Well, all I can say is that I've been busy, nowadays I have a new-used Pioneers radio and some random subwoofer with inbuilt amplifier, sound is not so great, but it's something :P I got both of them as a present, so it wasn't that bad for me. In december I also installed the wiring for subwoofer and also the subwoofer itself. So, I guess you want so see also some pictures then, sorry for bad quality, Iphone 4s provides it.

Plans for future

So now, I have few plans to what to do to Xsara. At the time, I have some random China radio (Denver) and I'm planning to changing it to Pioneer. With that, I'm probably going to get Pioneer's amplifier and subwoofer, because there are a discount package for 100 euros, which is quite cheap. And for looks, I got today one blue led to test into the interior lights. If it fits, I'll buy few more and replace normal bulbs with blue leds, which looks kinda awesome. For the headlights, I'm planning to put smoke grey tint on them. After that, I have no idea to what to do next. For now, I do not have any pictures, but untill next time.

Waxing the car and first snow in Finland

Few days ago, I decided to wax my car, just to make it easier to wash in winter. Took us few hours first washing it and then waxing it with four of us doing it, but the result is beautiful, sadly, I do not have any good pictures now, but I'll add one soon enough.

Yesterday, Finland got it's first snow on most parts of the country, so it was time to have fun on an empty parking lot, there were few close calls, but nothing bad happent, but there I noticed that Xsara was leaking petrol from underneath, so had to go back to friends garage and take care of that. After two hours and one jack Xsara was working fine again.










Wax drying up

Just having fun

Sorry for bad pic,but I got one pic from one of the close calls

Putting RCA cable to Golf

So today we had to put new RCA cable for my brothers mk3. Bon Jovi edition Golf, because the last one had its connector broken for some reason. Gladly, that didn't take long, as outside it is rainy and cold (and no, we do not have a garage or anything), but now it works again as it is supposed to.













And few pics of cleaned Xsara. Such a beauty, only corrosion marks are visible on hood and on the trunk, otherwise it is in good shape.

Some thoughts and info

So, the car which I drive now, is the Citroen Xsara from 2000, is pretty much solid boring car, which moves me from place A to place B. Nothing special, pretty cheap to drive and not so bad looking either. Before that, my first car was Renault Clio from 1995. What a waste, only 180 000 kilometers and it's tale was already over. It was very small car, not very good to drive, unsafe (Euro Ncap 2/5 stars back then and that model had airbags) and was overall alot worse than Xsara. It wasn't completely awful either, it was very fun to drive on curvy roads and on snow, besides those, wouldn't buy again.
Citroen is quite nice car, nice to drive, eventhough it has 340 000 kilometers and it is dated back to 2000, but it’s stable to drive and interiors are good looking and in good shape. I’m driving it for now, because as a student I cannot afford to have any better cars, but soon when I finish my high school and hopefully get full time job, I’ll probably buy myself either E30 BMW or w124 Mercedes Bentz, depends on which one seems more interesting when the time comes. For now, there ain’t nothing else to talk about, have few good looking cars which I’d prefer to have:


Start of the blog

So I decided to make a blog about my passion for cars. I’m 18 year old student from Finland and all I do for now, is write about what I think about cars and their parts.
What’s going to be on this blog?
I’m not sure yet, but I’ll be talking about cars and their parts, repairing them, tuning them, maybe something about their performance, all kinds of stuff related to cars overall.
I hope that even someone will find this blog somewhat useful for them and that someone would read my thoughts about my car and plans for future.
