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

I would take the aston as well. Even though the 260z is a gorgeous car. 

Funnily enough 05-07 Astons usually go for about the same as a top condition S30 chassis car. 

 

On a sidenote. I may have decided on the Aston i'll get when i'm able

The V8 Vantage roadster

 

Auto

 

(Used astons can be had for as much as a specced out mini paceman over here) 

But running costs tho


Needs money for car parts :P

Really wish that would embed. That's a shame it refuses to. Let it sit there for about 5 minutes

 

You can see in that, the stock headunit. I can't wait until I can get a new one. It will be so nice

 

Anyone else have unexpectedly fancy parts to your cars?

V8 Vantage Manual 07 (Its sold from a honda dealership funnily enough)

€39311

John cooper works All4 paceman

€33468

So i was a bit off. But not by much. A more accurate estimate would be something like a ford mondeo vignale or Volvo S90-D5

i'd still wouldn't buy one unless they are a manual. i've always seen astons as cars that are not fun in an automatic.

but why the paddles? because astons are the last new exotic sports cars that you can get in a manual, really.

So i could put it in automatic mode for quick trips to the shops and traffic. And still wring it out on b-roads when i feel like it.

Eh. I prefer the v8 so i'll get the v8 

The v12 sounds good. But there is just something nicer about the v8

Still trying to find out the size of this speaker so I can buy an aftermarket one and find that clip also so I can add it to my Saab. Any suggestions?

IDK if anyone saw this on the last page, (another convo was going on and it kinda got swept under the rug)

 

But I love this way more than I should, you can also see my stock headunit and cassette adapter that I can't wait to get rid of next year, along with my broken hazard button that loves to fall into the dash. Can't wait to get this car all cleaned up and up to date. Touched up my wheels slightly with plastidip today because it was in the mid 50s so I could actually spray. Got that state inspection sticker from Missouri off the windshield too. Love this thing way more than I probably should

40k euro is about 60k CAD

 

Call me crazy, but I'd take a GranTurismo with the updated 4.7L V8 over a high mileage Vantage, no matter how much cheaper the latter one is.

 

MY09 vs MY06.

Just making sure you're aware of how much an aston costs. Especially being British and having a high chance of mechanical issues

Decided to record a quick walkaround of the 9-5. Was so awkward to be in front of a camera again. Last time I recorded any video was in January I think. Felt nice though.

 

Uploading and letting it process atm

I like the GranTurismo too. But there is just something about aston martins.

I've been looking into it for a while and i don't mind a bit of extra cost for something like that. And the post 90s astons seem reliable enough

They are reasonably reliable, but when something goes wrong it does cost you a lot more
