They’re aluminum too? That’d be nice, not having to worry about corrosion as much.


#1805

Just the top hats are Alum.

I saw red.
Now I only drive fast in games or on the autocross track.

looking into buying a Audi A6 3.0 TDI Quttro from 2012
anyone got some buying advise? What should i look for in terms of generall problems?


#1808

Can’t be bothered with most cars newer than 2010… Some cars are still simple but it’s so few it’s scary.


#1809

I don’t know much about Audis. I have buying advise, but I wouldn’t even know were to start. I’d recommend keeping us posted as your looking around. That will make it easier to chime in with our thoughts, like we’re doing with @KemoKa73.

Here’s the start of that conversation. Lot’s of great questions & replies.

A few of the posts.

Smart move.

Not horizon, I’ve been playing 6 and 7 last couple years.


#1813

Yeah and I’m looking forward to 4.


#1814

You interested in playing playing together sometime?

Anyways… Yeah, It’s crazy how good games are looking. I’m blown away with the detail in Horizon 4’s trailer (too bad YouTube doesn’t do it justice). I remember saying the same thing for Horizon 3, but this puts that to shame haha.


I’m so happy we get them on PC now.

A friend said there were rumors of it taking place in Tokyo, so I was a little let down wen that wasn’t true.


#1816

So what’s the deal with horizon, how does it compare to forza 6?


#1817

Not entirely sure. I’ve heard it’s more of an arcade style. Like the cars handle a little less realistically. Honestly I really don’t know much about the Forza series, so I could be way off. I never got it because it was Xbox only, but now that it’s on PC I’m interested.


Edit: Ah, @sgtawesomesauce there a lot more different then I thought.


#1818

Yes, more arcade for sure, but not as over the top as hearing that might make you think [aka: it’s not as bad as something like Burnout Paradise]. You can choose to turn on damage as well if you want; allowing you to kill your cars engine and such.

Any thoughts on the '09 Saab 9-3 XWD Aero sedan?

☐ Looks like a sports car

I’m about to buy one and was curious if there were any major complaints about these.


#1820

I have good news…


#1821

You just saved a bunch of money by switching to Geico?


#1822

Those ads are cancer.


#1823

Sooooooo?.. You got it?
