Newbie here!

Hey everybody, so I joined this forum because I want to learn more about cars. If somebody could please give me some resources or start me off with some basics that'd be great! I hope to be as much of a car enthusiast as some of you one day, I'm really interested in modding but I don't know really know anything. I've been driving my parent's Camry and currently saving up enough for down payment towards a new car. Any help is appreciated, hope I can meet some of you and steer me in the right direction!

Since you mention down payment for a 06 TSX, my advice is do not finance a used car. The car depreciate faster than you pay the amount owing the bank.

Okay, thanks for the advice! You have any resources on how to mod cars? Because I would love to learn a thing or two

If you're new, why not start with a lower-value car to work on?
Mods aren't cheap. I know people with a ~15k car with mods that are easily into the couple thousands, and if you turbo/supercharge it that's when it gets really expensive. Of course it makes sense to start with a more valuable car to begin with, but make sure first that your budget allows it

And remember, newer vehicles tend to depreciate rapidly.
