Oh god why?
This looks so fitting on r/shittycarmods for some reason.
What a retard.

>tfw you want a CLK, but only have less than a grand
no it's climbing at red line i mean it'll use 450hp to get up the WCUSA at 30mph, 450hp can be achieved at any RPM i want, on the propane bus it gets 400hp at 5500RPM, the diesel one, (t420) at around 2000RPM, it all depends on the torque curve..
Jeez I haven't posted here in a long time. Might as well post something interesting
Recently bought my first car
Brought it home earlier this day.
I wasn't too sure about what I should get, but I think the 605 will definitely be a wise choice for doing load of miles.
I think it would look really nice with some better wheels
O yeah no worries lol. I'm just kinda short on money right now, but i'll definitely be getting some nice oem rims at some point.
It has brand new tires, so for now I'll probably slap on oem hubcaps if I can find any, or any 15" hubcaps that somewhat fit the car
Spray them black, they'll look better than they currently do. Hub caps probably wouldn't suit
Yeah the rear left one do look a bit rusty, but I'm sure these should do a good enough job at covering them
(See dirty photoshop for reference)
They were early 405's hubcaps I believe
Some first gen rims like these go for less than 50€ on average anyway, and uses the same size as the steelies, guess I could also swap the tires.
I do think they fit the car very well once cleaned up properly
Slam it on tarmacs and daily it
Don’t bother cutting the springs. Just remove them.
do you think u could do ports from cms18 idk if it would be copyright but id like to see a hell cat or something else come over or maybe the real thing no port idk
No hubcaps. Plastic hubcaps are ugly as hell.
Repaint the steelies black and let them shine. Proudly. It's perfect. I dig it currently anyway, even with the faded "ugly" wheels.
Don't lower it either.
Oh no, it such a comfy car I wouldn't do anything to its handling. It rides so smooth you barely feel anything. A great highway cruiser. There are a few broken bits here and there (Well actually only the front left foglight and the clock thing) , but it always slept in a garage. The paint is really clean, and mechanically wise it's perfect.
So no I'm doing any ricer thing to it lol. Keeping my daily oem
I'm not convinced by those rims either, they suit the black paint. Dunno about the silver
The Audi V8 Quattro has suddenly piqued my interest. I want one. I can't recall ever seeing one though.
The later ones got the all aluminum DOHC 32v 4.2 V8. 276hp.
The Audi's screen time starts at about 1:55. I really dig the way it sounds and moves.
You probably haven't seen them for typical Audi reasons. High maintenance, expensive parts, and relative unreliability have placed most of those cars in junkyards unfortunately.
Just basing this on experience with other Audi models, those could be super reliable and cheap to fix, I am not sure as I haven't seen them before either.
4.2 V8, AKA "the engine in the car being sold for below $1000 because the owner is done with this shit".
So true. Audis are the cars that I wish I had the willpower and patience to keep it on the road.
In Poland, it seems to be BMWs that have the shorter life. E30s and E34s are mostly gone, while W201s, W124s, 80s and 100s stay on the road.
Which brings us to the question: what cars last and what don't where you live?
Here, the long-life cars seem to be 80s VWs, late 80s Audis, Volvos and some Mercedes-Benzes.
What doesn't last is low-value, high-repair-cost 2000s diesels like 1.9 DCi Renaults or 2.0 TDCi Fords, and cheapo early 00s economy cars like the Fiat Seicento, Fiat Siena, or pretty much all Daewoos.
They still don't hold a candle to the Fiat 126p, which managed to become rare just about 10 years after the production ended in 2000.
