Agreed, and I owned 2 cars with chevy v8s. The LS engines are fantastic at making power but they tend to sound raspy and rough IMO.
The CX-7 has a nightmarish reputation for reliability from everything I have read.
It's loosely based on the e91 (previous generation 3 series wagon) chassis, so it makes sense it would share much with those cars.
So it weighs as much as a 911 Turbo but has an extra 100hp/130tq.
The weights seems spot on for the equipment.
So I guess new Hondas aren't the theft-magnets they were 15 years ago, when every other person who bought an integra or civic si had it stolen?
Mix of a USB drive, CDs, and satellite radio (in my wifes car, my civic is the first two only.)
Do they service the engines (plugs, seals, filters, etc.) from the bottom? I can't really see any other way unless they take off the rear bumper cover.
I'm guessing a F1 turbo/hybrid gizmo they use to charge the KERS?
As others have said, look like a nice build, but I don't see $14k for it. Sadly, he would probably make more money parting it out and selling the clean shell with a JDM front.
It does look like a...
Granted my civic probably has thicker glass and more sound deadening, but I turn about 3500rpm at freeway speeds and it's really not bad in terms of engine drone. You also dont have to downshift to...
About 7 seconds. The torque makes it feel faster, though.
Some of those questions are pretty dumb.
I am practically counting the days until I am in the black on my Si (not much longer so yay for honda resale). The 2-series is on my short list for a replacement--hopefully I'll be able...
This car is most likely more powerful than the restrictor-plate cars driven at super speedways, too. Pretty sweet.!
The Stingray has to be damn close. IIRC, a base LS3 C6 could hit 190mph.
The SQ5 is really more of a competitor to the Macan S (which also uses turbos). Both have similar power/performance and cost about the same (without options, of course); while the Macan Turbo is...
My wife's current dream car is a Cayenne, but if for some reason we can afford to replace her EX with something in the $60k range (lol yeah right) I would push HARD for a Macan. It's...
I probably sound like an old man yelling at a cloud, but I'm not a fan of the trend moving away from console shift levers to rotary dials, push-buttons, and stalk-shifters. I know with...
