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

with some hope a car of that caliber will be my first car. How much did you get it for?

I paid £1800 with 70k miles on the clock. Had to pay a little more as i wanted a diesel as they are cheaper to tax, run and insure so it works out cheaper in the long run.

1600!? What the fuck?. 390 is the highest i've seen O.o And that's with 25% VAT

That's a scam. Back away. Look somewhere else  :o

omg, we pay ~120$ for better quality aftermarket parts like that, in germany. 

They are crazy. Even with the newest amg model, the part wouldn´t cost that much.

We got news back on our '03 c6 Allroad. We had to get the tranny replaced.. Since the bay of C6 Allroads is so packed, they had to take out almost the entire front end of the car to get to the transmission. $1k for the tranny, $4k for the replacement (original quote was $2.5, but they've run into problems for around 1.5 months now and prices keep on going up).

 

Oh the joys of owning German cars.

Dude that's wrong. Dont do that.

 

Are you planning on changing it yourself? I did it on our 03 E39. Took maybe a half a day the first time. The next month I had to do it two more times. Third time I did it in 15 minutes.

Found a video for you

^I have a playlist of these kinds of videos that I sometimes play at night to fall asleep to. I'm weird. :/

Best sounding IMO is Maserati's V8. Astons, Bentleys and Lambos also sound good too. V10's though. Not a fan of the Aventador. 458's aren't bad either. 

 

Dont get me started on older cars though, I'll go on for WAYY too long

 

as for favorite motor, probably our i6 in our BMW. That thing is a tank

Has to be a V10 for me, especially the Lexus LFA. That engine is a masterpiece.

This one right? Looks really badass, What's with the wires tho? i thought everything(both sides) was supposed to have pistons for efficiency, it must make one hell of a noise with an engine like that
