Who here enjoys concours exhibitions? Which do you attend?
The Bund Classic, China’s first classic car showcase to take place in Shanghai on October 16th to 18th 2015
I'm going there, most of the cars will be from the museum
As in a show for classic Chinese cars in particular? Surely there must have been some sort of classic car show in China before now - the place has a population of over a billion, for God's sake.
>Surely there must have been some sort of classic car show in China before now
No. China doesn't have a classic car scene.
China barely has any classic cars at all (At least those average peple could afford)
Are these things legit?
Sure, watching them spark next to a regular plug looks impressive but you have a giant chunk of metal there.
I would think that it might get in the way of the flame kernel.
In addition, OEM's develop their engines with the standard plug.
Is E3 pleb faggotry?
It's like a programming. It's either 1 or 0. Your engine doesn't care about what kind of spark that fancy spark plug will produce. It's either make a spark to ignite the fumes or not
Why do you think we replace worn spark plugs with out of spec gaps? Of course they still spark but you loose power and efficiency.
Replaced some very olds ones on my explorer and immediately it had a bit of "pep" that it did not have before. The old ones were covered in carbon and wayyy out of spec.
NOT binary otherwise we wouldn't need to replace them ever....
If you own a Ford with this piece of shit, you can download the 3.8 update to USB or visit the dealer. It adds a feature where holding the voice command button will send commands to your iPhone so you don't have to deal with the terrible voice recognition of the car.
Even if you don't have an iPhone it has performance improvements and bug fixes.
If you are looking to get a new ford get it with basic sync or the new sync 3. Save yourself the agony.

to the Porsche 911 Turbo S (a comfortable luxury car great for road trips that also happens to be faster than 99.999% of the vehicles you'll share the road with)?
Sup /o/. My new job requires a lot of driving (150+ miles/day) and multitasking - checking GPS and texts, etc.
My manual shitbox isn't going to cut it anymore, and I'm looking for a 2014 sedan/coupe <$20k
>still "fun" enough
So far its Kia Forte "Koup" versus Dodge Dart SXT both with the automatic options. Any other competitors?
Anyone here ever do any street racing?
This thing just fell out from beneath my steering wheel. Can't figure out where it came from.
Is it important or can I just discard it?
Alright, /o/; I'm currently living in Japan. As soon as I'm able to, I will buy a car. The thing is, it'll be older than 25 years, so I can import it into the States no problem. Now, what should I get?
Depends on how much you want to spend
Maybe a Mirage Cyborg if you can find one or R31 GTS-X
Hey /o/, gotta question for you.
Was driving in my 2010 535xi, suddenly got hi temp warning light and power to my engine was cut off. Parked pn the shoulder and checked under the hood, and there was some coolant leaking from the reservoir, not much. Checked under the front tight wheel well, itbwas drenched and some parts of the wheel itself. What am I looking at here? Is it a faulty water pump, or did I just not click the top well enough? Car is reaching 100k miles.
No idea, wasn't too keen on possibly scalding myself. It wasn't a whole lot of coolant, some wet areas on the reservoir itself and damp right on the cover, most of the drenchy areas i saw wad the wheel well and wheel
Is dis car gud?
I'm looking at a non-turbo version to buy in my area. I've heard bad things about Nissan's v6 engines...but isn't that most of their cars? I was just wondering if anyone had advice/tips/experience with these cars. Just looking for an affordable rwd coupe since I've only driven Hondas before.
I think 84 was the year the switched from the inline 6 the the v6 in that chassis. It took a couple of years to work the kinks out, but those are decent engines. It's not going to randomly blow on you. But it might have some problems seeing as it's like 30 years old.
Just bought this 2004 RX-8 for $7000. It's a 4 speed automatic with just over 100k on it. Did I get a good deal?
How fucked am I if I get a 2008 M6 with 80k miles? It's about $27k, so pricey, but dat V-10 is orgasmic
They are an awesome ride but pricey to feed and pricey to fix. If you can get a BMW shop to have a look to make sure it hasn't bin crashed and glued back together cheaply. They can also plug it in and see how badly its bin treated in the past.
You want that thing safe coz holy shit they are fast.
I'm wondering if any of you know what particular OBD2 protocol to use with this particular pin layout?
It's for a 2007 skyline 250gt type v
If I take it to a nissan dealership I don't think they would be happy helping me out in this sense, by being able to look up fault codes and engine info myself i'm effectively taking away some of their business.
Any help is much appreciated.
