Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

yay Terry is here!

 

I love the Acura TSX, aside from the illogical headlight switch my only complaint is the rear legroom. It's very cramped back there.

I don't think so...

 

Although I know very little on VERY old engines. Could be wrong

I remember watching something on TV about it. It looked something similar to the one you linked. A bit of research shows i was thinking of a radial engine. Not too sure what the difference is between a rotary like the one you linked and a radial.

 

Edit: Going off topic here, sorry.

Yay Bob345 is here! Another BMW person!

 

Nice car, btw. Any chance you know the name of that color? Never seen it before. looks interesting

edit: is it Sonora Metallic? #A32? probably not

 

Why do BMW color names have to be so confusing?! http://www.bmwinfo.com/23430.html

Serisouly, when we were buying our second e39, I tried to look up the color code/name e39 online, and there were like 5 different shades of silver that all looked exactly the same... 

I'm honestly having trouble finding the name too haha. I would have to check the door jam to check. It is a pretty uncommon color on any bmw it seems.

My dad drives a BMW 116D Efficient Dynamics. It certainly isn't a looker but it drives nicely.

So, I'm getting a (2006?) Rav4 (dark blue) (dad's old car), with just about 150,000 miles. What should I do to make it look better?

Wheels can make or break a car. 

 

Try to find a set that matches your car nicely. Should make it look a lot nicer.

 

Also, maybe window tint? Black out any chrome parts. And maybe even lower it a tad? You wanna keep it high enough for when when you go offroading  :P

Aye, it's not too bad. Shame he has the eco diesel. With a bit more power it would be great. Out of all the cars he tested this one was by far in a way the most engaging to drive.

... that must be really rare. It's not even on the website I was on which listed (apparently) all E46 colors.

 

I quite like it. It's like a faded Dakar/Phoenix Yellow. Not as shouty/gaudy but still very visible.  :P

Awesome to know that i'm not the only one that geeks out about cars as much as i do about pc's.

 

Here is a link to an ablum of pics of my first car. ( https://imgur.com/a/cy3hC ) She is long gone,mid 2011 a friend of my moms replaced the water pump,and noticed that the over flow tank cap was broken,and instead of replacing it with an OEM one(The stock one release the pressure after it gets to a spefic PSI),he replaced it with a universal one,which did not hold in the pressure at all allowing the liquid to boil,i think that mixed with the fact my mom decided to just put in water while she barrowed the car,all that caused the head gasket to blow,i spent a little over a month with a friend on week ends trying to fix it,and i had never done repairs this deep in engine before,and well after the repair,their was somehow coolant in the fresh oil agian,and she sounded worse than when i started the repair.

 

So i chose to sell her,i ended up selling her for $200,and what was worse is the guy told me all he was going to do was crush her,as soon as he left i went in my house and cried for about an hour,because that damn fun to drive, it loved to drive fast lol,and just going out for a drive in it help me out trough a very stressful time.

 

As for my current car here she is:

My realstic dream car(i might be able to get it in a few year if i work hard) in this:

I would want to pick up some base  impreza rims,and suspension to make it feel like more of a wagon.

Yeah, i think it is much better than the phoenix yellow you can get on m3's. That color is just way too bright for me haha. Ive been doing some research on the color for a little bit now and i guess it was only available for custom orders only, meaning that no cars where ever in that color on a showroom floor. That i guess is the reason that it is so uncommon.
