Quadrifoglio is getting 500+ (w?)hp and manual. I think it's RWD too. That ticks all the right boxes on paper. Let's see how it handles in practice.



I think its absolutely STUNNING, far better looking than the Ghibli which it (more than likely) got its engine design from. unfortunately though, I work with a guy who's dad works at Ferrari of Toronto, and apparently they have some doubts about whether or not the manual will be coming to north america. That would be absolutely tragic if it only came with the manual. we're looking at possibly the coolest enthusiast sedan on the road, up there with the CTS-V and M3, so to not offer it with a manual would be a real shame.

I really like how Alfa's trying to change up their image a little bit, while simultaneously staying exactly the same lol. there's nothing more horsepower, fancy styling, and questionable italian reliability can't solve

Mate picked up a 350z yesterday. Chucked me the keys at lunch today.

Lovely car from a quick blast. Sound was stunning decent steering feel and nicely weighted. Stubby little change needs getting used to. Deceptively fast I would say but I only pinned it in 3rd really.

I want some 6 cyl action now.

I love the 350 and 370. my only gripe is it feels like you're driving a bathtub, the side sills are too high and visibility is shit. I could live with it but only if it wasn't my main car

I've always liked the look of the 350 and 370, and the Z series in general. I've never had the chance to drive one though.

Reminds me when me and my boss were driving back cars we had gotten and I was in the Z31 300zx. When we got back, he told me "Stop punishing our new products, and don't tell you frickin' didn't cause I saw the nose of that thing try and touch the goddamn clouds."

Good cars

Bought a new car. Ended up going with the Fiesta Sport with the ecoboost. 2014 model, 2000kms on the clock, got it for $10k plus my Impreza. Can't wait to take it on some windy roads to see what it can really do but for sitting in traffic it's so much better.

Congrats!

My friend may be getting the Fiesta ST or Focus RS when it comes out. Hope you'll write about your first impressions.

Friend of mine used to own a Genesis Coupe, 2010 pre-facelift 2.0T engine. That thing was great in the snow. The Gen is a very balanced car, just like the BRZ. It feels heavier, but it feels right. V6 isn't much heavier and doesn't ruin the car's dynamics, it only makes it potent. And it sounds gorgeous with a catback !

Just put some decent snow tires and better transmission fluid in it and you should be set.



As for my new car Xiao, I didn't have time to take any pictures yet. I've been moving to a new apartment, with a garage and sweet ass backroads to get to work, plus I got a new job that pays much more than the previous one !

Spoiler: It's a 2006 WRX wagon. Dark grey metallic. It has a bellmouth catless downpipe on a stock STI catback on it. Lachute Performance Tune ( Best Subaru Performance shop in the entire country...). Pulls way more than newer WRX's and it runs like a friggin champ. Body is perfect, except for a few rock chips on the bumper. New Stoptech brakes and Exedy stage 1 clutch.

I'm not especially stoked, maybe because I'm too busy to actually enjoy it these days, or maybe because it lacks any drama, or scare factor. I'd like some more oversteer with my boost threshold please.

I'm probably going to trade it for a mint SW20 Mr2 turbo or fully restored 280z... I'll give myself a few weeks and see if I want to keep it.

Depends on the system and your goals. I prefer a reference monitor style rather than boom and sizzle so a matched component speaker system with sub, mid, and high components are all engineered to work together rather than mix & match willy nilly.

Something like this:

Choosing something that actually fits your car is pretty important as well so it looks factory and not bodged-in. Crutchfield is a pretty good source for this:

having the 6.5s will let you not have to thump the sub so hard so you'll have a more rounded, better eq'd setup. Unless you're planning on being one of those jackasses that play trap music at beyond max volume, in which case throw your sub in the nearest river
