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

oh the cap is just for the little pop on connector... I didn't even know there was a screw thread underneath those... I've only ever seen ones with a cap.

I guess the threaded ones are for if you have some kind of threaded nut on a wire going to the plug?

nope, all my bikes comes with ngk plugs stock, non of them have that cap. and you dont screw spark wire on it, you just shove it tight. i would guess that cap will make sense if the spark wire has some form of clamping mechanism, but no, you just shove it in.

 

model number, if you want to know:

size: m10x16mm

NGK CR7HGP, platinum tip. same size with C7HSA(nickel tip w/o resistor), CR7HSA(stock, nickel tip), CR7HIX(iridium tip)

 

Denso IUF22, iridium tip.


why everybody post the spec of their rig here? i dont! cuz its made of mashed potatoes!

It’s just a different style of connector, that’s all.

Also, this

I didn't read the whole article but may I just note that YOU CAN GET THE "EXECUTIVE PACKAGE" ON AN M3 CS WHICH IS MEANT TO BE A "HARDCORE" M3? Why bother adding an "Executive Package" (or even better, why bother MAKING THIS AVAILABLE FOR THE CS) when the CS doesn't have a center console nor the dual-zone climate control?

 

G fucking G BMW...

 

/rant    sorry xD

God I really hope not, it's been over a month, almost 5 weeks now! This new guy sounded a lot more confident, put me on hold to check stuff, and was significantly more helpful than the last few times I tried calling. 

 

And Thanks! just got it today.

I agree 100%, the A30/A35 looks great. It actually reminds me of the Saab 96 a little bit...

I can see where you are coming from but personally I think the Austin A90 Atlantic looks more like the Saab 96 (at the front).

that'd be one of my worst fears... sitting on track around a big group on a fast section where it's hard to avoid hitting you. 

Glad everyone was alright.

Hey guys, finally decided to pop in here and announce myself and my car. 

Had her for a little over 3 weeks now, but the last time I came into this thread I hadn't got any good pictures of her. 

 

She's a 2001 Mazda MX-5, second gen and basically entirely stock. I definitely intend on getting better looking wheels, I don't like the look of them at all. 

Also a new head unit is on it's way, the FM radio is dodgy (have yet to fiddle with the antenna though) and there's not even an AUX in the standard head unit. 

 

Haven't got any interior pics, but it's the black and red leather combo. 

 

And yes that picture is unedited, I've disabled the master AI feature on my P20 Pro.
