The Garage at Ballz Deep

And you don’t have to park in some foreign lot. A sports car is tough to own in your sitch. I had a dr. appt this morning so I got in late. The "competitive" lot in BFE was full, so I had to park on the roof of a 5 story parking garage (roof is only where competitive vehicles can park). By level 3,...

Car Talk 4: Now with Park By Feel!

have you considered a mini ? Pooper S with auto should be right around 12-13k. 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 dri...

Yep and they also sound exactly like those TurBRO Vapewagons... which I think is a cool sound, but damn, it doesn’t go unnoticed.

I don’t disagree but that’s kinda my point, BMW is a high strung car that will eat consumables more but it certainly performs better. The N20 is by far the best 2.0T I’ve ever driven. Better than the Focus ST, GTI, WRX, etc for smoothness, linear delivery, sheer powah. I prefer the fraud 2.3 .... h...

:iono: the 30k interval is crazy but an N20 also outputs more power than the 4.6 with 40% of the displacement and better fuel economy... so something has to give I guess. I’m actually willing to argue this one. You have to remember 4 speed vs 8 also a crown Vic is far bigger and way less aerodynami...

FWIW my R56 had a slight high-rpm misfire that was solved with a set of new plugs at just over 30k. Oddly enough my M3 which has a plug interval of 30k and $800, started running much smoother after. I wonder why BMWs are so tough on plugs. I go 100k on the crown vic and it runs smoother than any BM...

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:
that coxster comes with a 4 banger?
As of 2017 or so all Caymans/Boxsters feature a four cylinder basically Subaru WRX motor for $100k.

McQueen, how does your car handle destroyed roads? Philly’s road conditions are horrific and making me want to off my STI for something automatic and softer. I want something I can throw the bikes or a kayak on the roof and NFG drive around like a brain dead moron and if I hit a rough section of ro...

FWIW I average 27ish commuting around town in my 328i and it does quite well on the freeway, low mid thirties. The auto is better on gas too.

Granted I’m used to a bus and :poorvette: but my 328i even with M Sport suspension rides quite nicely and soaks up potholes quite well. I’d probably get some 17s/marshmallows if I lived in Baghdad, but I think it would work well. It’s a bit fun but overall just a nice commute machine that is rather...

My buddy Maxx let’s me borrow his :truk: any time which is handy... but it’s a Ranger he got for $1200. If I owned something like that I’d be happy to toss the keys to friends/family.

Starting to wonder if a #basic McQueen spec 328i or something would be a better pick for me. 2.0T Giulia, S60, etc. Anyone have seat time in both the sedan and the CUV counterpart care to share how they handle bullshit roads? I’d think less weight would crash less but more suspension travel may rid...

I managed to fix all of the issues on the 328i today! Replaced the plugs with $15/each BMW units and reset the misfire code, so far it hasn't come back and is running well. I switched the coil pack from cylinder two (that had the code) to one, so if I get another code it should be easy to diagnose....

Odd some work others don't. Also odd brakes on your car... looks like the bigger calipers but they are not blue :wtf: There are at least three or four different brake options for the 328i. I don’t remember the exact details, but I have read some threads on it and it depends on the year and which pa...

I agree I drove the Bang Bus in every North American metropolis and it was fine, over 20 seconds to 60 mph, literally. Power is fun but not needed. Not needed when you’re driving around a 20 ton manhattan apartment. It’s definitely nice... but anything sub 10 to 60 is relatively quick when needed.

Tellurides look like really nice vehicles. Seen a few around here and the styling is on point.
One of my good friends and his wife got one. I sat in it, it’s crazy nice... but man, I’ve never driven a Kia that drives all that well, somehow I doubt a huge one would be any good.
