Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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

Race car.

275 wide fronts and 325 wide rears, massive wheels 12 inches wide in the rear and they BARELY work on our tire mounting machine and balancer.

So the car is roughly a 2010 Vette, the drivetrain is all Z06 but the chassis is non Z06 since the aluminum chassis is one crash trash where as the steel frame can be repaired and worked on. Drivetrain is all stock right now so they can figure the car out on the track. I can get in and out with the steering wheel in place no problem which is kind of messed up lol.

Ricing up my car, my rivet nuts came in and M5 fits my wheel liner clip holes PERFECTLY. I ordered the stainless bolts and countersunk red anodized washers. I've spent a whopping like $20 on this rice-a-roni endeavor.

again with the questions for my car people here:

 

im just daydreaming about what my next car should be and thought maybe id ask around what other people think.

im stuck between 2 i really like:

 

the bmw z4 e89 i like mostly for design reasons. the long nose. the fact that its a roadster. the interior design including the big center console armrest. it just looks like its tons of fun to just relax and cruise. plus if you lower it and put some big rims on there it just look badass.

Bildergebnis für bmw e89 tuningBildergebnis für bmw e89 tuning
 
and then theres this little guy. the abarth 595. not the newset revision but the one before that mind you. effectivly also a 2 seater but very small and still 160HP and more. i do also like the exterior on this one especially again when lowered and some spacers on the wheels. this one doesnt so much scream badass but it just looks like it would be the most fun toy for grownups. also most of the ones out there come with an exhaust that honestly makes me a little horny hearing it. and its just the fact that you dont expect the performance and sound when you look at it. the interior i find a bit empty but absolutly love the bucket seats. plus you park anywhere with ease :D

:D hmmm apparently i felt the need to defend the 595 a bit more than i did the e89.

 

anyway which one would you go for? do you have technical reasons / knowledge about why to pick one over the other or just taste?

and please dont start with me about how both are crap and i should get this or that. im asking opinions about these 2. thanks guys

i know the 595 is pretty cool and sounds fiery and all, but i would stay away if you want your wallet to stay weighted. maintenance and reliability aren't strong suits so that's something to take into consideration. i would rather go with the bmw. tbh.

I stabbed myself with a pry bar today whilst doing brake pads.

Theyre surprisingly sharp

Needs money for car parts :P

I have not hear much good about the 595 reliability ... but i have not heard much bad ... so i dont know what to say 
E89 will be like a newer BMW ... Just dont get the 2.0L turbo 4 cylinder (the N20 engine has a few lawsuits regarding a well known reliability issues of it loving to self destruct) Other than that the BMW you shouldnt worry much about it as long as it doesnt have any electrical issues.


Overall i think both cars are decent options but i would go BMW personally ... cause its a BMW and i bet i wouldnt fit in the 595 xD

I need some advice.

I have a 2012 Impreza hatchback, very practical, but boring.

 

Do I:
Save money for a while and buy an additional "fun" car, like a miata, or maybe something even more interesting like a honda beat

Or

Buy a nice android auto head unit for my current car, bigger ssd for my computer, and a few other random things

 

I am torn between wanting a fun car, and wanting to buy other things...

Fun car is going to cost you more than the other things honestly. But is also probably the most satisfying lol

That is my dilemma. Fun car will cost money and such, but... fun...

Just save tbh. Android Auto is nice, but not worth the extra bucks. As long as the head unit has a nice signal to your speakers it should be fine. AA and CarPlay is nice, and good for navigation, but you're still paying for eye-candy. 

 

I'd probably go for the Miata. That usually is the answer. Honda's are OK, but I'd prefer a Miata any day. Miata's are probably the nicest budget car out there.

Honda beat is a cool tiny JDM car, but Miata is probably cheaper and easier to fix.
