"Why get a two door? four door is better because it's easier to get into."

They're not wrong.

 

I'll give you that, it's unarguably easier access, but in my opinion, four doors are a bit "family-ish" (Though, the Charger, Impreza and Lancer are the exceptions.) and a bit of space I don't really need at the moment.

 

However, I would agree it's better when it comes to convenience.

Strangely, many four doors have slightly higher torsional stiffness than two door coupés based on the same chassis. It's certainly the case with the BMW E36 and E46. They're usually marginally heavier but you can counteract most of that with weight reduction. That's why some saloons are more popular in racing classes than two door versions of the same chassis.

I´ve read on some forum with a similar thread,some guy said he saw some girl look at a red Hyundai Coupe and then ask her friend is that a Ferrari.

Some other guy in that same thread kept calling car bumpers spoilers.

Going all yokel for a minute. I haven't had a moment IMO of people getting cars wrong as such (just picking the wrong model or simply not remembering). All pretty trivial and inconsequential, however... When it comes to tractors it is nearly always a Deutz, even when it's a Deere or New Holland. Hell even Fiats and Fords tend to have their names or logos emblazoned, but the default is Deutz or Massey. It was fun when I was 3 but I'm 30 now.

It annoys me soo much when people say the Sultan is full Evo, the only things on it that are from the Evo are the rear lights.

 

Does the name Altezza or IS300 ring any bells? I guess not for most people.

A few days ago I´ve heard some dude say that moped is a Croatian word for scooter (both words are actually used in Croatian,moped is generally used to describe any 50cc motorcycle and skuter is Croatian version of English word scooter).

A lot of Norwegian teens seem to think that "Cabriolet" is the name of a car manufacturer... Oh, how I cringe.

I know,I personally only call motorcycles with pedals mopeds,but to most people here in Croatia word moped just became a synonym for 50cc motorcycle.I´ve heard people call scooters and even 50cc sport bikes like Yamaha TZR50 or Aprilia RS50 mopeds,despite not having pedals.Many people here also call any SUV Jeep,even if most of them knows Jeep is actually a brand,it just became a synonym for SUV here.Also,word chopper is often used to describe cruisers and touring bikes too,not just real,custom built choppers.

Don't know about Croatia, but in USSR/Russia, "Moped" was a category defined in traffic laws, with only requirement being engine displacement under 50cc. Hence it being a correct name for such vehicles despite etymological disagreement. I still would cringe at the phrase, "Moped is Russian for scooter," but if somebody asked me what to call a scooter in Russia, I would have gone with "Moped."

It's not drifting. It's just lift off oversteer. Drifting requires RWD.

Anyone who believes the highest number on their speedometer is their top speed.

People who think the slopbox paddle shifters in their Elantra or Dart are the same technology in an E-gear Lamborghini.

People who think the size of their tank (the amount of money spent at fill up) is relevant to their gas mileage.

I guess if the size of the tank is large enough, the weight of the fuel in a full tank could make a difference in mileage, though it doesn't seem like that would be very significant.

I know what you mean, but this one isn't necessarily dumb. It's the manufacturers incompetence that they wrote for example, 160 mph as the top speed but the car ends up only doing 120 max without the engine near busting up.
