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.

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.
