Cars We Drive! - Page 166

Did I ever post my current car? I just cannot remember, have been lurking for so long...

2004 base Mazda Miata. Mostly stock except for some cosmetic changes, added safety gear and smaller diametre wider wheels.

One at rest...

One at play (but before I installed the bucket seats and harnesses)

Time tested enough that on the interwebz everyone can afford the Ferrari Enzo. Should I post a picture of mine? I also would think that M6 is a tad more than $60K, and I would also imagine that is out of range for a good 80% of this forum. A dime a dozen in my neck of the woods, but nonetheless a very nice car that many people would aspire to drive.

No, the idiot's argument is you can't afford it so you hate it. Quite possibly dumbest shit I've ever read on any forum.

Used m6s can be had for 60k which is easily attainable.

That makes more sense. I agree that the theory is dumb, but could see how it works with the anonimity of the information superhighway. Same theory that a maserati was an exotic. If a soccer mom drives it, it ain't anymore exotic than the driver!

You clearly aren't familiar with the minimum $250k small-timer salary we have around these parts.

Not really a fan of mixing the pre-Bangle cars with Bangle-era OEM wheels, I see it a lot on the streets - something doesn't flow to me. That and the OEM M3 knockoffs everywhere.

The BBS CH's are probably pretty heavy but I like them a lot, the original CH's were a very attractive design. I had some BBS wheels from that same era and they weighed a ton in 18"

I see where you're coming from, but it can work:

The wheels on my Z4 M Coupe are pre-Bangle and BMW's been using CSL style wheels on the E92 Competition package and 1-series M Coupe with pretty good results.

As for the BBSs, I thought about getting them refinished in silver, but the more I saw pics of them the less I liked them. What the Z3 coupe cries out for is wheels with some lip to them!

BBS-style wheels (like the CSL) work on a lot of cars. But that teardrop wheel just doesn't look good.
