Canada sucks. I pay 40% on my paycheck so the government can give it to native indians, newcomers and to send money to Shri Lanka and bums on the sidewalk. Plus the weather sucks. BC is fine though

Did you ever get under Julian's car?

Sorry to say it was a rust chariot lol.. Not to a huge extent but it was there.

And why are you comparing m-tech e30s that get driving 2 months of the year to e28's with 500,000 miles and spotless undercarriages in Cali? Let's see how fast that m-tech moldings start to fall off at the first sign of salt

LOL you can be rest assured a very very small portion of that if ever is seen by the groups you mentioned. i've been to native reserves, they don't get jack. most newcomers fend for themselves. some somalians living on welfare are baby machines that you could have a grudge against. but a big chunk of that money is gulped down my corporations and top gov't officials' expense accounts.

lol. yup, Julian's car was a beauty, but had rust creeping out on practically every panel. California has 1970s civics with shiny silver facotry exhausts... nuff said. Look at that 528e's exhaust. So clean, and most likely the facotry original too

Ok, ok, i'm SORRY...ALL our cars are junk...we have nothing good here.
So why dont you move to the US then?

And this is a stupid argument to have, as we are comparing apples and oranges...I can tell you there are LOTS of shitty cars in California, more then in TO for sure...Just because TV shows the good parts, its not all that...

I don't see how it's apples to oranges, seems like a pretty fair comparison to me.

And to say there are more shittier cars in california than in TO is kinda retarded,

[quote=mirek;1299268]I don't see how it's apples to oranges, seems like a pretty fair comparison to me.

Let me explain it for you;

we are looking at pictures...None of us have seen the cars posted from Cali, we dont know how good they are under, how original they are, or if they have 500K, or if the even get driven daily! On the other hand we have cars that many people know in person.

The first post of the rusted out "canadian" cars...does it look like your average E36? I dont think so...

Yeah, if we pick the best of the best, and put it against the worst of the worst...it might look good.

I was in california, did 1000 miles of driving there last week actually. If you think the cars there are less clean then here.... well, you need some glasses Fil.

The difference is, alot of people don t care about their cars there, yet because of climate, they still remain shiney rust free and clean. Mechanicals aside, california cars > canada cars. Sorry
