Camaro MIGHT be a diesel

  1. I don't know where EUB is from, but in the Netherlands, the M5 is more expensive than the Z06, like in most countries.
  2. In the M5's home market of Germany, the C6 does cost more in overall tax & insurance than the M5. 6842 Euro vs 6071, according to the numbers offered in the Sport Auto supertest. But a potential buyer might also want to consider the fuel consumption costs. The M5 is not good in that regard.
    The Z06's tax & insurance costs hold up better against the likes of the 997 Turbo, F430, and Gallardo, even in Germany.

    Also..."hot nun" that the same in Dutch as it is in English? <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  3. haha, hot nun in dutch would be hete non =)

    but anyway, if one can afford this kind of car, I don't think fuel consumption would be a huge issue <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/PnutSpecial.gif"></A>
  4. of course I only dream of buying an Aston Martin, I'm not rich, so theres no chance in hell that I would be able to afford one, but just cause you're a BMW driver (which isn't that impressive, so is my father), doesn't mean your better than me, which seems to be indicated in this post. I bet you dream of buying an Aston Martin, hell, I bet everyone here would.
  5. Yeah, a late 70's V8 would be ace. But that's a rather realistic dream.
  6. Stereotyping american musclecars and americans we come to the conlusion that:

    They love torquey engines.
    Don't mind low revs.
    Love to brag about making good mpgs despite of having a big engine.

    Diesel suits them.
  7. All cars are modified one way or another.
  8. Yeah, it really kinda does. It's a shame the sound is so...uninspiring.
  9. What? Diesels sound freakin' awesome if they're done right.
  10. I have yet to hear one that isn't merely loud.
  11. Apparently you've only heard stock diesels then.
  12. listen to a BMW diesel

    edit - damn I almost sound like beersheva

    i remember watching that
  16. post a vid/soundclip.
  17. Diesel is currently $0.40 more expensive per gallon than 97 octane here.
  18. But we're talking about the euro-market now =)
  19. I live in a redneck haven of jacked up diesel superduties, I'd be more surprised to hear a stcok diesel than a modded one.
  20. So then you know what I'm talking about. Diesels can sound awesome.
  21. YES, diesels can sound really awesome, but not traditional TDIs pumpe-dose made by VW, these really do terrible kad-kad-kad-kad, mainly when cold, but modern ones.. twinturbo jet BMW 535d with sport packet and remus exhaust sounds really almost like his petrol brothers, and looks like hell. And brand new is Jaguar XJ Turbo Diesel a very quite saloon.
  22. I am in love with the whine of a turbo diesel. My goal in life is to get one for a weekend car and take it to all the awesome off roading places around here
  23. No, they sound like death.
  24. You are so bitter. Go to a gay pub and get laid man
