Re: Let's talk cars

Lol cars are on par with Kansas oceanfront property for solidity in investing (unless you can afford the real unicorn pasta rockets). Yeah there were a lot of old school parts but I had the car awhile ago. Most of that stuff was still in production back then. I don’t even know who’s making parts anymore other than Z1 and some of the universal companies.

Re: Let's talk cars

While we're talking cars, found out mine had its turbocharger die this week, after only 60k miles. The repair cost shouldn't be too bad because yay warranty, but still.

 

Apparently I used my car too much these last few weeks.

Re: Let's talk cars

@ImtheDevil hopefully you're not worshipping the 😈 haha but anyways yeah a friend did that seafoam on my car just like how you explained and it was like revving up the smoke in a race 😂
I use Techron but is Seafoam the same?

@Eddie I used Costco gas before and I wasn't getting good milage for it.

My little brother had a 94 Integra, and dang he put a JDM wheel and a big exhaust pipe, that thing was loud as a MF lol 😂 but good thing the law passed saying something about you can't have it too loud, I think that's stupid lol...

Re: Let's talk cars

I was thinking that too - I have 10 years experience wrenching on Audi/VW in that car scene and CHRA seal failure is really common. Can’t tell you how many charge pipes I’ve popped couplers off of and had oil just draining out lol. The most valuable lesson I got from it was that despite what I had initially thought, I definitely do NOT want a 2.7T. The stage 3 S4s are a riot to drive but that’s only like 45 minutes a month. The rest of the time that engine has a maintenance fetish that I would be unwilling to tolerate even in my most zealous car-wrenching days.

And that's what keeps me away from Audi's. There was a 2016 rs6 for sale here for the same price as my mazda new. I couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger because all I could think of was oil leaks and fi failures

Re: Let's talk cars

I had a 2003 540i M Sport. Loved it and hated it. It was one of the most fun steaming POS I’ve ever had. I only kept it 3 years and probably had to put $4000 into it in fixing crap (that’s with zero labor cost - I did all of the work).

Ah, Beamers. The most beautiful car, but I’ve had more than my fair share of issues with them.
