    Went to a car show today and they were out in force.
    Here's a few that were present including a really special one.
    Enjoy - I did!

    This old F100 my Grandpa restored. May be mine in the next few years. Its always fun to see people look at it when we drive by. He put new seat cover, painted and removed a lot of rust, and just made it look better. Not in the best condition ever, but I love it.

    My A8 passed the inspection, took it for a 200km warm up drive after sitting all winter. It's fun and comfortable to drive.

    Tread depth is fine, this is fine. Nothing wrong with this tire.

    I've been trying to get a clean E30 or E36 for the last 4 years, but they were either expensive as hell or in very poor condition. I wanted an E30 coupé but the 316i were already at 5.000€ and the 318is were for 8.000€ at least, so I switched to the E36, which was heavier but at least the 325i was a bit cheaper. There were almost none in good condition.
    Instead went for an E91 325i which I took care of really well, but it's not the same. This sunday I might be able to change my E91 325i for an E30 325ix with 90k km, which is amazing because even the ones with 200k km starts at 10.000€ in poor condition.
    Hope I can say goodbye to my baby
    And say hello to something I've been looking forward for many years. And it's not just a 18is nor a 23i, but a 25ix.

    Well, the Mitsubishi Pajero (or Shogun) is called Montero here in Spain because Pajero means... Well, it means "wanker" haha...
    Anyway, in Galicia cona means the same as in Portugal, yet it's still sold there
    And the Nissan Moco, Moco means "booger", it didn't help that the car was green
    The Lancia Marica didn't come to Spain, you can look it up too
    Unfortunate names, I'm afraid

    I already have a 500cc class bike, but wanted something to hoon around on a bit. Eventually there will be some dirt tires and other bits installed.

    Fun fact: Just like with the Toyota MR2, the name is really unfortunate in French. MR2=merde=shit, étron means turd.

    That's wrong, that's just the "standard" on the small, low-torque DQ200 gearbox. Everything above that has wet clutches.

    I´m learning, i think i was stupid enough to join the Tesla hype. 
     
    Needed a new car, the Passat were 3 years old, and it was time to do something, all taxes was removed from Electric cars in denmark.. (in a span of value, so REALLY expensive ones still are taxeted) and with the 150% taxation that is quite a saving..
     
    so a Model 3 LR fell from a "taxeted" cost of 760.000Dkkr to 460.000dkkr,  so i jumped on one, a new one delivered here in March..
     
    I don´t get people, i love my car number 2 a Petrol driven 200hp Polo GTI from 2019, i HATE my Tesla..
     
    * assembly quality is piss poor at best, and the fun part is i went through 80 cars on the lot, and all had the same issues, every panel is a bit off, not with the shutlines, which looks fine, but sticking out.
    * all bolts that are painted, has been touched at the Freemont plan, there are areas where brackets are, without paint, because the "trunk" was aligned after paint, doors where aligned and all other stuf.
    * my car was FILLED with black hands in the white interior, so it had to be deep cleaned by Tesla after delivery
    * crooked steering wheel needed a 4 wheel alignment, jumpy ride, got a new tire, and wheel alignment, did not fix it, had to go to an external shop to get it properly fixed.
     
    and so many more small issues, and the thing is.. it seems like i am one of the "lucky" customers that got a good car..
     
    No doubt Tesla has a really great software side, but the automotive part is poor, the fun thing here is, that this is not "lack of" ability to assemble a car, since it is systemic poor quality, it is obvious, that it is a design issue, of to many welds, that make the chassie skew, and generally just a car that is designed without the knowledge on how not to create these issues.
     
    fun the small things you also learn..
     
    * i HATE the navigation, not being able to run POI´s or multiple routes (and the Elon explanation of this is because he know better what "OPTIMAL" route i need to drive than i do, and of course i do not need to see other areas of the world) an example is us driving on vacation, "Elons" route 193KM, motorway 130km/h all the way, 10 minutes faster than the route i wanted to take, that was normal road... 90km/h 191Km .. the fun thing is here, that my route left me with 20% MORE battery left... 
     
    * And apprently i need to be a part of the TESLA "CULT" where i do not complain. 
     
    Trying to get rid of the car, and get a A6 55 TFSE. simply just hate it.

    Get a lawyer, if its a factory original part that is made for that car they dont have the right to bitch about it.
