Cars from UK are good i suppose *ahem* MG rover *ahem* anyway, yeah except for those cars, most from here are nice. All rounders. They need to focus less on rich people though.

they did.. but they didn't sell, hence rover.

True say. Vauxhall are doing alright though, i like the new astra (well, its not that new anymore.)

You mean the Opel Astra? I always thought that was German.

Yeah, its confusing.
I may be wrong here but i think Opel is the international/non-UK name for Vauxhall, so the cars are the same, just the badge and sometimes the car name.

For example, you get the Vauxhall Astra and a Opel Astra. Which is the same.
And then you can get the Vauxhall VX220 and the Opel Speedster. Which is also the same, its confusing and silly....to say the least.
NCP
Yeah, I never heard of Vauxhall.

I doubt a country will buy it. I think you mean General Motors. That doesn't change Opel from being German.

Muscle cars are pretty cool, i like the way some of the engines sit on top of the hoods
Mekstizzle
The engines dont sit atop of the hoods, its mainly either 1) the exhaust or 2) Its just a really big air intake bit.........
Im not sure i dont really know much about american cars.

BMW's are overrated. You haven't lived if you haven't been in a BOW. The Box On Wheels... a true American classic. I put 28 inch dubs and hydraulics on mine.

My favorite car is a Chevrolet El Camino. I really like the style of car it is. I mainly like the ones they made in the 70's. I cant drive yet but when I can I will try to buy one and if I have the money I will pimp it out.
BigBadJohn

Nah not really, my boss just got a bmw 545 for 51,000 and it does 0-60 in 4.0secs and limited speed of 155mph, also has most of the extras that bmw does, and i think it's kinda good for the price.

Yeah it sucks how BMW's and Mercs have electronically limited their top speeds.
*Damn Germans, they have no speed limit on thier motorways and yet they still slow down thier cars*
But.........its not that hard to reprogram the limiter. rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif cool.gif

It's cause of environmental issues or something, must be more toxins when your going 155mph, and chipping your car removes it, cause it's the cars chip that limits it, and the replacement chip just gets rid of it.

I liked that one episode on "Pimp My Ride" when they had that VW Bus on there. They gave him a 46" Flat Plasma screen TV with a PS2, Smoothie maker, and a Stop Sign (like on a School Bus)

Damn hippies......nah seroisly, its a good thing. Couldnt see myself wanting to go more than 130Mph on a motorway anyway, and petrol would just be pathetically drained. They need to find a way to make the engine more efficient, instead of alternative fuel's becuase really its going nowhere at the moment, and electricity/fuel cells is just removing the pollution from the cars and bringing it to the power stations etc...

Yeah suppose, my boss probably would though, I don't like been in the passenger seat when he's driving any car, he drives waay too fast.

And yeah all this economical bullcrap needs sorting fast, cause apparently theyve only got like another 20years of oil left in the ground for petrol.

Yeah I know, I like the split screen design, it looks much nicer than the bay window, but the split has its faults, including the unknown reason of why the front windows open, look at the picture, you will see what I mean. And unless the main side panel is on the other side, you have to get into the front, and then climb over the seats to get into the back. How do I know so much? My sister has a camper, and my next-door neighbour has one, and itís a total wreck, so heís trying to fix it up, without much avail. And one of its main problems is the brakes are rusted, engine doesn't run, and the steering doesn't work.

p.s. the big air filter on the engine is an extention of the super charger which i prefer over turbo because it is direct to the engine unlike turbo which can go of at any time

Yeah, of course superchargers will be better, but then you will need a big one, AND it takes up more petrol/gas.

But hey, assuming your american ill say ''Gas? Man, over here we got plenty of gas, and its cheap too!'' [/american] clapping.gif

A turbo only feeds the air into te engine at higher rpm, normally around 4000+
And a supercharger doesnt always need to be bigger to be better, a smaller supercharger helps some cars more as it allows just the right amount of air feeded in, a big supercharger just pushes loads of air through and makes the air/fuel mixture weaker, losing performance, which is why superchargers are usually only fitted on biger engines like 4.0 litre +

Dream Vehicles are:

GMC Yukon Denali
Cadillac Escalade (new model)
H2 Hummer
Any corvette model, they're all nice
GMC sierra
Lincoln Navigator
Ford Expedition
Old school Impala

My uncle is a crazy car guy and i noticed he had one sittin behind his house last time i was there. I asked him how much work it needed and he said he would fix it up n sell it cheap to me. smile.gif I think its missin some things, and thats pretty much it.
