Not sure if you were referring to the furthest you could go... but yea... i live in Eastern PA.... total of about 8.5 hours away from Toledo.
Yeah it's like 3 hours from Toledo to Erie, and PA is a very long state.
Just post it..?
Is that the 4door or the 5? How do you like it? (no innuendo...)
Not bad eclap, is it the 1.8 125bhp?
yeah, that's the one
A friend had the same engine in an A3, pretty pokey for a 1.8.
my mate just bought a 1999 A3 with the same 1.8 engine. He got it a day after I got my A4... have to say I prefer the interior of my A4 to the one on his A3. A4 has a lot bigger boot as well. Which comes handy when you're lugging massive ice hockey bags around. The A3 is a bit faster to 60mph, but there's not a lot in it. It's a bit smaller and probably a bit lighter so... I remember even my 1.8l focus zetec felt faster than this A4. But it's no slouch by any means. It's faster than my 1.8l mondeo was, by quite a bit. and it's a lot smoother. Just had to put a new choke in it, the old one was causing erratic idle revs. it was a £160 job but now it's all sorted and it drives like a champ.
Engines are pretty bullet proof aswell, so shouldnt really have any issues there.
rainy day last summer
It is a V6 Holden Commodore 1997 Series II Executive which produces 147kw and handles very well with 18" rims. I have installed a 12 inch subbie in the boot and amp and plan on getting a performance exhaust system in the future for loudness purely.
Hahahaha, it took me like 2 years to finally take the first picture (I rarely carry a camera with me, and cellphone ones SUX) :banana:
I came across this blog caled Old Parked Cars, and thats basically what it's about.
eeh... my favorite car-related website is http://www.youparklikean*******.com.... cept replace the *'s with the spelled out version of a**hole.
Not mine, but will have one soon :-
VW Scirocco 2.0 GT.
Can't bloody wait
Kinda wish they had those over here. What engines do they have as options on them?
Really lookin at a 2011 Golf TDI myself.... just not sure if i want 2-door or 4-door...
I want a Scirrocoooo~
Took some pics today at Cars & Coffee. Hope this link works.
*random pics below
Stock for stock, a good driver in an M6 WS.6 can run 12.8s, a good driver in an M6 C6 can run 12.5~, it'd be a close race with "average" drivers.
A Z06 would spank a stock LS1 F-body though.
@Humonculus1987: As for the video i was supposed to post, Imageshack had a 10mb limit, and the video is 36mb, i'll try youtube. My car is 350rwhp SAE (sea level), nearly stock being: Headers, Lid, Exhaust, OR-Y, 3.73's and a Tune at sea level, which is nearly stock for these.
Car was supposed to be in a Calendar, but that fell through. here is the shot(3 Exposure HDR)
Exterior is done. Next is a 23x/23x cam, 3600 stall. should be at 400rwhp with a good tune. Running 12's@sea level, with some DRs
Make sure you get a leakdown before the powertrain expires.
I wouldn't touch the engine of that car until the warranty runs due to the crazy soft pistons in the 2.5 turbos.
/Why yes, i am buying a new motor
