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 was specifically going for used cars...

The OPC ones are too expensive if you want one that hasn't been ruined by its previous owner. You can find a nice stock GSI for far less.

GM refreshed the Camaro and made it significantly worse styling. New gen Silverado 1500 looks hideous and still uses the same engine family while telling consumers to "not to look at fuel economy ratings". Roll out their christmas "buy like a GM employee" ad campaign, after laying off nearly 15k people. Then they puke out this garbage. Fantastic. Put a fork in GM.

didnt know it was actually the same size...hmmm interesting. i mean its definitly way less unique but i do like the quality assurance you get with vag. will look into it more.

Ibiza Cupra

also very intersting. classic vag. hmmm although like the polo they both dont have that unique flavor to them. the look and feel is just not all that exciting

Fabia VRs

cant really find it on the market here. only the rs and those are 4 door only and that not really my thing

 

thanks for all the suggestions polo and ibiza do look the most promissing of the bunch but also a bit more boring of a choice than the abarth

MINI Cooper S

yeah looked into it but a long time work collegue has for years chewed my ears off about how his mini is crap and the service is nightmarish bordering on abuse

Smart ForFour Brabus

really ? i should get a smart by brabus instead of a fiat because fiat is one with terrible quality / look and feel and reliability. nothing against smart but its definitly the one that says "i couldnt afford something better" - its basic

Alfa MiTo 155

i can get into it. not bad then again alfa is still italian. so are they any better? also the interior ...idk

Those are the mainstream options. There are a few weird cars like the Volvo C30 (230hp 5cyl?) but it looks like someone backed it into a wall in the factory. Or The DS3 (Racing). Then there's the Suzuki Swift Sport with 140hp. Toyota does a hot version of the Yaris, called the Yaris GRMN, but that costs over 30000€.

The c30 is quite heavy and big... I wouldn't count it as the same class as the others mentioned previously. 

Also it looks quite awesome... Especially the facelift r-design ones

You're right, I've never driven one. Just thought that it might fit, but I just had a look and they're almost 1500kg. The front looks alright , but the back is hideous. I know that they designed it as nod to the 1800ES but it just doesn't work for me.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
