Re: Zildor's Garage

I don't think he expects to run the AC via solar..... This is cool as hell ZIllhuge....best of luck with it! My point is that ac pulls a ton of power and would require a large battery bank and a large array to charge depending on potential duty cycle. Even if your ac only pulls like 600 watts, and ...

Re: Car Talk 4: Now with Park By Feel!

My very minimal experience would lead me to the same conclusion. A Mini Cooper S felt more fun with sharper steering and better handling than the 235i. 235i felt more premium, faster, sounded better, better place to spend time. Both rode a little rough. I tried an automatic 235 without bro mode eng...

Car Talk 4: Now with Park By Feel!

I'd like to try one along with a 228i but I'm kind of thinking that if I go with a used German car then I might as well just get an M3/Cayman like I really want, damn the extra running costs. If I could get :tits: to drive a god damn :manuel: then there would be so many more options. Been living to...

Re: Car Talk 4: Now with Park By Feel!

No auto available and I'm not paying for premium fuel. There are precious few cars that are small-ish with fast steering, decent ride/handling, a good automatic, and decent running costs. A3 sedan or :turboyaris: might be an option, amusingly I can't find steering ratios for VW/audi. The E90 M3 is ...

Re: Car Talk 4: Now with Park By Feel!

My brother has the new Elantra GT with the DCT. I think he got it for around 19k. It's fuck ugly but he seems to like the way it drives although he wants a :manuel: again.

Re: Dem bicicletas, doe

Velomine.com has cheap wheelsets, but for a single rear wheel eBay will probably be best.

Most expensive 4-banger ain't no BMW :doe: it's likely a Poorsche. Coxster GTS can hit $100k with options, probably the Macan too. :fullretard:

Not to confuse you any more, but only 3 pictures are working for me. Not sure if anyone else has the same problem or not?

Google photos is garbage for sharing. Last I heard, Flickr was the best option but I just use tapatalk because it is easy.

Re: Car Talk 4: Now with Park By Feel!

G8? Get the V6 with the 6 speed auto. Or is that too old? G8 is a big car. :dat: G8/SS is way too big. I also don't want an ancient auto that doesn't rev match downshifts - I already have that and it's annoying. The super short first few gears on the 8AT are really appealing to me as well. The non-...
