give more info : size/use, budget, what are your needs .. Don't buy one of those aussie Holden sport pick-ups
2018-06-12 10:06
bmw e46, audi a4 b5, mercedes w210, or vw golf 4?
2018-06-12 10:07
the golf has the lowest cost maintenance, don't underestimate it with old german cars a small summup for audi vs bmw (mercedes is too big and boring, doesnt fit the needs for a youngster) diseno-art.com/articles/bmw-e46-vs-audi-..
2018-06-12 10:11
+1 I have a vw golf 4 for over 15 years now, still looks really nice tbh.
2018-06-12 21:56
mercedes boring? who are you ?
2018-06-12 22:55
I dont mind the size but at most i can spend 20k AUD
2018-06-12 10:51
I really like the Audi A5. 2012 coupe version can be found for around 15k aud. Is it good?
2018-06-12 10:52
Yes. What's the mileage on it ?
2018-06-12 21:22
I don't know if #67 like just the desing , but i mostly heard a bad opinions about it. Like problematic engine/gearboxes. Best suggestion : Pick up a few cars that you like and consult with a trustful mechanic.

I said what i heard from people that owns it , never owned one to express my personal opinion. I'm glad you have no problems with it, and I hope you wont do it future.

just depends how u treat the car, change oil every 10-15k km and do other maintenance when needed or when the manual tells to do it. then u shouldnt have many problems with any car. just dont do that "longlife" oil shit what is needed to change every 30k km better for the engine to keep fresh oil in there, i change engine oil every 10k km

if he wants any actual advice that matters he would ask his family/friends or local aussie people who actually know the market and what you need in this country not some edgy european kids on an internet forum that probably drive whatever their parents bought them no I am not claiming to know any better but this is the wrong place to ask
2018-06-12 10:12
edgy kids will say "audi R8 lul" but you can also have good info It's not that complicated to pick the constructive comments Furthermore he's looking into german cars
2018-06-12 10:14
you'd be surprised last time I saw one of these threads I only say around 4 actual suggestions for what the guy needed from the 200 replies
2018-06-12 10:14
hltv in a nutshell
2018-06-12 10:15
Here in Aus it's standard for a lot of people to drive 50km or more each day from work and back (at least in my city) as the cities are pretty huge so for an Aussie you look at fuel efficiency, maintenance and reliability. Probably any 4 cyl hatchback would do the trick for this guy, would cost a lot more than a sedan equivalent but in the end goal it would be worth it because it's so cheaper to maintain.
2018-06-12 10:21
yeah that's true, AU is so fucking huge you don't have the same needs Like in the US
2018-06-12 10:22
What I don't understand are comments like #13 I simply DON'T UNDERSTAND them, like I want to but I don't understand how in any world they are 'good first cars'

like my old peugeot 306, a bit over 5l/100km + insurance was cheap af only had to swap fuelpump in 3 years, no other problems
2018-06-13 23:01
That's quite a lot for 1 day each day
2018-06-12 12:22
Not really, maybe for EU it is. AU cities are enormous so you get used to it. Living in South Asia vs Australia was just weird. 1hr drive there got us to another city to visit family but here you're just on the other side of the city lol. My city is renowned for being a 'ghost town' :D
2018-06-12 12:30
Are the gas prices fair? Here they get more expensive each day, and you know that our economy is tier1 shithole
2018-06-12 12:31
Mate gas prices are not fair anywhere :( Depends on your economic situation of course and if you are a retard that buys a stupid car that you really don't need that just burns fuel (I'm guessing most of HLTV)
2018-06-12 12:36
Today the bread went up by $0.15 in my city lol tommorow probably milk and electricity
2018-06-12 14:26
Well thats what i do actually , i am in the car industry.I'm not sure why you think that everyone in HLTV is below 14 but anyways. All i could suggest him is pick up some reliable car , but not something that will not come out of the service. This is my personal preference of course , because you know , we have a lot of work to do, instead of dealing with our cars all the time. Since a second hand is never certain, at least knowing that it chooses a suitable engine/gearbox for a certain model (A4 B8 is one good example that multitronic is not reliable and many people have troubles with it). The "reliable" thing is not only about us mechanics but for any car owner , im pretty sure that nobody likes to visit service regularly.But as you said better to consult with a familiar / family mechanic who can point it in the right direction.

i also have a 1.8 but with only 125hp, luckily it weighs way less than newer lancers (almost half a tonne less) so that makes up for it. bad part is if i crash im guaranteed death.

So this is a comeback? If he can fix all the problems with bmw at high milage then this is fine. I had a bmw as a company car between 2015-16 and would recommend them for that (factory new 535d GT), not for a private person with a 20k budget.

imo GT versions are crap The point being is that it's not a high mileage for a 3.0 6cyd car, also, either way, you need to consider the cost of services, oil change tires etc etc
2018-06-13 12:50

If you want a reliable car just buy some sort of japanese car. They are notorious for their reliability. If you are against japanese cars but you want a reliable car i suggest you buying some sort of volkswagen and believe me they are pretty good. Especially if you buy a golf. If you want to flex you can buy a Mercedes, Bmw which i won't suggest because when repair bills will start popping up you might regret the purchase. Anyway what options are you looking at atm ? For my first car personally i bought Honda Crx because i dont need practicallity and i just want to have fun. So a little hatch like that is perfect for me.
2018-06-12 12:31
I was thinking of 2010-2012 Audi A5
2018-06-12 13:02
Awesome vehicle. But keep in mind that you its not the most reliable car so don't spend your whole budget on it. Keep something in case something breaks. Good taste too :D
2018-06-12 14:54
buy a recent Golf or Polo. Good reliability and low fuel consumption and it should not be that expensive to repair if something breaks

Buy a relatively new car. You dont want to be spending much on repairs unless you can fix shit yourself.

All this BS. All you need to do is to find a car that suits you for your needs etc. And when you have done that you can start searching around for a specific car until you find a well taken cared of example. Doesnt matter if its 5 years old or 25 years old. I myself bought a BMW e46 1999 inline 6 2 years ago from the original owner, still going strong after 50000 km, only thing i have done is a radiator change. Its all about how it has been taken cared of. END OF STORY
