Where I work, there is a specialty "motorsports" dealer across the street. The deal in a lot of BMW, Porsche, Jaguar, AudI etc. and some fancier models of your typical brands like Mustangs and Tastefully Hopped-Up Imports. I just heard a 2013 Mustang GT scoot by the office, and thought, "You know, dollar for dollar, a Mustang GT has one of the best sounding exhausts out of the factory for a modern car."
Thoughts? Competitors? Does anyone particularly disagree? I'm not talking about a fresh from the dealer Maserati. I'm talking about a car that the "rest of us" could reasonably afford...
Sounds like somebody’s missing her mustang :). Could get an exhaust system for the Honda :).

Just bought a used smaller pick up for work till winter or so ..Tired of cramming stuff in crossfire and not driving the F250 V10 till it snows !
Its a Chevy Colorado 2011 2 wheel drive lowered a little :rolleyes: ..Owner said he drove it in winter with snow tires and sand in back !..Not so sure about that. I mean I believe he did as he was in a wheel chair and his new truck was lowered also ,but I think he drove it because of lack of choice not being the best choice !
Contemplating custom license plate options !
Here is his sales pic ,it is lower then it looks and he gave me all the original equip to return it to original if I wanted as it was professionally lowered ..
I like it low I think ? Kind of the hook for me ??:)

Oh yeah that’s lowered!! Come with a pair of fuzzy dice on the mirror? Good luck with it! That would get torn apart in the city. You could add air rides. Tune to low rider going through my head now.

I do but not for that reason. It was just an Ecoboost so no real exhaust note to speak of other than what they piped into the cabin. The Honda actually doesn't sound bad, and I like listening to the turbo "Pew" when it dumps :) No fart can for me, thanks. I did have a Magnapack on the MINI Cooper S. That sounded awesome and I miss the carp out of that car...

As winter begins to loosen its not so cold but wet grip on the southern states of Australia spring provides ideal conditions and the opportunity to get out of the suburbs and head for hills

Sounds worlds better than anything from Chevy, that's all I know :p.
Magicpenny75 In my opinion I think it's pretty pitiful when car companies know their cars sound bad so they feel the need to put sound in the cabin.

:eek:. You have some sweet rides.
Since you seem to be quite the Toyota guy, what do you think of the new Supra?

To be fair, it's a very efficient way of parking in tight spots.
Not as efficient as this.

I just park on the side of whatever...because Jeep. Ever hear of a Jeep Hug? It's an efficient way to park multiple jeeps in tiny spaces. :) I can't find a video and I haven't done it so I don't have my own photo to share.

But don't all Honda's come with an annoyingly loud exhaust ;)?

First of all, sir.... :p
Secondly, I actually think the SI sounds pretty good...for a Civic. I miss my MINI...
I am under no delusions about the SI being a true sports car...but it got 42 mpg on our trip home from the mountains yesterday so I'll take it over the 14 the Jeep gets lol. But Jeep Is Life. You either get it, or you've never had one.

Little torn on it but its always good to see a MFR come out with a sports car. Toyota really hasn't been the same since the 90s. The supra is essentially just a rebadged Z4 and mostly euro designed. There are faster cars for cheaper though from other mfr that would probably be a better buy. I would never buy a first model year car from any MFR so mabey a few years down the road when/if they come out with a TRD version or something I will look into them further but at this point I have very little interest in them.

It only seems like a re-badged Z4 because BMW and Toyota collaborated so closely on it. The Z4 is the more "raw" spots car (aggressive cornering, shifting, while the Toyota is "smoother and more fluid". So there are differences lol.
This is probably a dumb question, but you do know that BMW and Toyota collaborated on the Z4 and Supra right?
