My beloved e46 330i, RWD, manual, equipped with pretty much all extras available in 2004 (except for xenons, sun roof and skisack). It took five months of intensive searching on CZ, SK, PL, AT, DE and CH servers. In the end, i had to drive 650km over night to Germany to pick it up. I've had it for two years now and i still can't get enough of it :conduit:

About 5-8mpg  :aie:
But cruising along at 70mph on the motorway i can get around 40mpg.

I did get 147mph out of it the other night, and it still had more to give, just some cars appeared and i back off as you never know what they are going to do.  Razz affraid

Thats Scary fast.. :conduit:

There was a story on radio 2 the other day. Someone got pulled over in a really old style skoda and they where doing 80 mph on the motorway. The Policeman said to the driver do you know
what speed you where doing sir to which the driver said sorry i dont know officer my speedo has stopped working. When the policeman told them he was doing 80mph he was most surprised
the policeman then said I'm not going to issue you with a ticket this time as you will probably go away and boast about it lol!

Thank Heavens Skoda has moved on thats a great car love the colour too. :banane:

not really a daily car, but also I would like to share it as it is one of the reasons I was not recently around that much. Lot of personal issues but also one dream come true:

The ideal car for a family man, why did I not think the same myself?

One day you will tell us why your wife didn't kill you when you bought it - wait, she was likely too busy taking care of the childs lol!

I am affraid she´s got a bigger issue then a Corvette nowadays, but on the other she already enjoyed that V8 sound and rattle and approve that the car suits me well. So, middle age crisis at full throttle :D :D :D

Damn, two beautiful 'vette's there. I never really liked Corvettes before, but I'm reaching my 30's and suddenly they are growing on me. :papy:

funny..I always wanted some small british sport car like MGB...than one day tried the V8...and the Corvette C3 design is very specific, not much similar cars around and still quite a small car...so the ocmbination really hit me. And I was lucky enough that one proper piece of manual Corvette in great shape with low mileage come around at the right time Wink
if it was few month earlier I wont bought that, if it comes now I would also not buy...so right time, right place, right car, right mindset

C3 Corvettes have some kind of dodgy reputation over here. Often used by guys who 'persuaded' women to work for them, and the lucrativeness of that business was often represented by visual updates of dubious aesthetics... lol!

Nontheless, two very beautiful examples! Red never fails to make an impression, but that offwhite on the C3 makes for a very interesting change.

Both, but usually more on the car.


Sometimes also on customers, when they changed their mind about the negotiated prices, and other men in the same biz and their employees, when disputes over real estate can't be solved otherwise... :aie:

The first pic of the C3 in the gas station is very fitting - that's where you will spend most of the time :rigol:

There were a number of companies that modified MB bodies for special purposes, Binz being probably the best known for their ambulances (generations of german paramedics learned to hate them), that hearse looks like Pollmann. Wheelbase seems to be stock (Binz stretched the wheelbase), but that 2 door conversion with the big side windows looks like there was still quite some work involved. We are still looking at a unibody chassis...
