:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

There are several V8 powered C classes. The last gen was the C63 amg (w204), i was extensively shopping them because I really liked the size/power combo and the fact that they were around 30k. 07-11 engines are basically fucked (if you like to drive them a lot), there are many issues, camwear, head...

:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

What was the V8 C-class AMG, the C63? Those things are ridiculous and I want one. Those head studs/bolts sound like a bad issue doe. There are several V8 powered C classes. The last gen was the C63 amg (w204), i was extensively shopping them because I really liked the size/power combo and the fact ...

:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

Oh wow these came down 15k since I was last looking. They are better inside than the 3xx fake sports. But in the fake amg trim they tend to be quite heavy, the chassis is also quite noodely and they are neutered by :225: tires in a near 4000# vehicle so expect terminal under steer. Other than that ...

:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

I've read nothing about terminal understeer in these cars but rather that they are actually quite good to drive. If Max has driven one however I guess that would hold more weight You can't really put :225: tires up front and not expect understeer. I have driven several C300s, and sport C300 and a C...

:plac: finds v2.0: Moar gold on the crangslist

Since I've been going through the usual suspects of S3, S4, and 340i's, I suddenly remembered the MB C43. I remember my dad checked out a C300 a few years back and I was pretty impressed. I didn't drive it but I thought it was definitely nicer inside than the equivalent 3 series. I don't know much ...

So far he is not budging on price even though he is 7k off private party kbb in excellent condition 3% of cars according to them ... He knows what he has. You're buying something of a cult vehicle.

The RX is more practical but the GS will be a generation newer tech/UI
Idk if thats a good thing. The Lexus mouse isn’t exactly an improvement on anything at all. I need to check one of these out in person.
The mouse takes some getting used to but it isn't terribad.

Well you has dogs... Is there a way to get the smell out? Or is it foreverdoomed.. also you must have missed the whole blown out clutch sitch. I’d expect most cars to require a clutch if you’re looking at high mileage used ones in the SF Bay Area. Dog smell. It’s mostly in there man. Lisa had a car...

$2k clutch job :( otherwise I would do it... I did like the :manuel: in this thing... See if that can be negotiated into the price, then you have a car with a new clutch. I didn't even know they made FJs with :manuel: , but down the line it may be worth something due to rarity and :derp: like mysel...

I hope you can get this one, I like it a lot, perfect combo.

Get the truck. Rescue a dog. Car smells like dog? Comes with dog ownership.

Ok so it's getting nearly 50hp bump... I don't know what there is to complain about .. Hype R doesn't have AWD and it also doesn't have the same HP. Golf R seems well positioned. I am happy its coming period. No one is buying hot hatches, it is SUV time man. Hopefully the way the Mk8 matches the co...

330 seems sufficient ... I guess. Although it'll likely be the least powerful again assuming the STI gets a big power bump. Hype R will probably put more power out too. There aren't many hot hatches left. :( Ok so it's getting nearly 50hp bump... I don't know what there is to complain about .. Hype...
