Getz 1.6 DOCH GLS. Mine went from 110 to 167hp and reducing the weight by 25%, also with anti rolling cague and 185/90/14R on it, crazy acc, good balance and handling due to the weight reduction and redistribution, and specially funny as a entusiast starting car.

I have a little toy Trabant, and if I pull it backwards then let it go, it drives away with approximately the same amount of HP as a real Trabant.

Your bikea are all poverty spec models. For the price of one of them you could have had something worth riding.
>>
>>724802016
Either new engine
Or forged internals and turbocharges but even then its not very cost effective

>>724800843
Damn I researched it and this car actually exists.


There's a reason Renault doesn't sell a lot of cars.

>>724803232
lol no they aren't. The fixie is, but it's supposed to be cheap and therefore be locked up outside if need be. I wouldn't take any of those other bikes to be locked up somewhere. The seat cost me as much as the fixie.

Oh okey well mg has a terrible reputation. But it all depends on what your looking for

The trance has a basic fox 34 evo fork. Non kashima. The float in the back is the same, no reservoir

The trek has a suntour fork. Nuff said.

Rocky mountain have only ever made awful road bikes. That 10 year old thing only has Tiagra too.

Pound for pound, that fixie is probably the best bike you have.
>>
>>724803818
Best I can get in terms of specs for the price.. It's better equipped and faster than anything anywhere near the price... If I look after it well will it last me 10+ years?
>>
>>724804170
So all your bikes cost 5k+?

There's a serious drop in "pound for pound" at that level.
>>
>>724804871
I have 3 bikes, each worth over £5000. My tri bike is more like £8000. But then i work for a bike shop, so i only have to pay trade.
>>
>>724805308
Pics or it didn't happen
>>
>>724805308
What actually makes them cost that much? For that kind of money, I'd expect a bespoke build from a company who came to measure my height, weight, posture, shoe size, leg length, all that shit.

>>724806078

Any chinese shop or bloke in his shed can lay up a carbon fibre frame, but top frames are layed up like this.

You wont get a bespoke tailored frame with good parts spec for £5k. You wont get a beapoke tailored carbon fibre frame for less than £10k, thats without any other parts.

Tailored fit is overrated anyway.

Mercedes G 2016

I regret buying this car, should I trade it in for a BMW M4 or keep it????

Those will only appreciate in value. M4s will depreciate rapidly in a few years.

>reducing the weight by 25%
So what did you remove? Wheels are probably about the same as stock, thinner ones; chassis and brakes unchanged; engine unchanged; BIW unchanged; no changes to glass or closures; exhaust system is probably heavier as I'm guessing you put a dustbin-sized pipe on it.

So how exactly did you take roughly 250 kg out from it's normal kerb of 1027 kg?

Bought this Opel Astra Twin Top in 2014 with 140 HP. Stil my favorite car. I love it.

>>724803443
I own one. It's slow as balls, but I'll be damned if I'd call it a shit car. Cheapest thing I've ever driven, most reliable car according to a few mechanics I know.. But yeah, it looks like ass, rear engine, tall as shit and wind makes it drift across lanes.. But fuck me if I love that steering they put in, it can turn on a dime.

>There's a reason Renault doesn't sell a lot of cars.
Hum, I didn't see much of this model but there is 2016/2017 renault every fucking where.
