yeah, i wanna start an open food fight. about cars. more critique and open minds, less posing.  

As with most food fights, you seem the least qualified to start one, but the most likely. #thanksgiving

$70k question: M3/4 or Giuila?



post #19178 of 26994
I would like to weigh in on this question but need to drive the Giulia first

TPM monitor malfunction light came on in my M3. Just what I needed. A malfunction in a system that I never rely on anyway to force me to take a couple of hours out of my day to rid me of the nag light that comes on every time I start my car now.. censored.gif

You know Atlanta well. When I had my M3, the annual service when it had about 3k miles on it was at BMW of South Atlanta. I lived in Midtown at the time and as I was approaching my building after the service, the moonroof didn't close - and it started raining. Pain in the butt.

I've gotten a E-NET/E-SYS coding setup for the M4 to clear out stupid stuff like this. Cars are damn complicated with their modules now. On the E9x M, you could reprogram the slip angle for MDM for example. On the F8x M, you can control the slip angle based on how quickly the electric motor turns to apply pressure to the plates on the LSD. It's nuts.

Same as HRoi - though on paper, the Alfa should destroy the F8x M. However BMW actually makes cars. I've seen more 918s and P1s on the road here than 4Cs - granted zero 4Cs is easy to beat. The US spec 4C also ended up heavier and less powerful IIRC.

Also, as pictured, you might want to say which 90k car wink.gif. CCBs aren't cheap.

That is a difficult question I really like the look of both. Both are rare here as well, so that is not going to be a deciding factor either. I think based on nothing but videos and looks I would go Alfa and watch it depreciate like a wet rock.

I'm surprised M3/4s aren't that common in Denmark. Then again, you Scandinavians have more Teslas per capita than the state they're made in - shrewd people smile.gif.

$250k retail will make anything rare. Teslas have a bunch of tax benifits or had as they now are taxed like everything else here.

They still have insane benifits in Norway and Sweden.

buy either. as good as each other.
