  1. Correct. Auto-rises at certain speeds or you can do it manually by pressing a button beside the handbrake.
  2. Finally waxed! :) Not flawless i'll admit but it's not that bad. http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20140420_202524_zps5be38457.jpg http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20140420_202536_zps07c2a833.jpg http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20140420_202620_zpsf29b0c45.jpg http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20140420_202604_zpsf0c7d210.jpg
  3. Took a few pictures today, nothing special, just because :D It is a dirty dirty car at the moment and in desperate need of a waxing. It litterally feels like a sandpaper when you touch the paint :( I feel so terrible about it, but i'll get around to fixing it maybe next weekend hopefully and i'll put on the summer tires then aswell! Finally! :) http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20140406_144914_zps71e96207.jpg http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20140406_144937_zps84401e6c.jpg http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20140406_151807_zps89bd114c.jpg I also noticed the summer tires in the shed so i decided it was time to weigh them cause i haven't gotten around to that yet :D So The Sortilége's with somewhat worn tires were: 23.0 Kg. I actually thought they would be heavier. The winter tires on the 18" Terrific rims where as i wrote earlier 22.3 Kg.
  4. Seems to be quite a bit of power loss in there tho. I've seen dynoed GT86'es that has had similar 160 bhp marks too i think, and they are only 200 bhp to begin with.

    Huh? Do you know like, at all what you are talking about? What does a clutch have to do with anything? As long as it's not slipping it's doing it's job correctly. Bigger cars/vans like the Sprinter has heavier clutches because they need to be a bit tougher than on normal cars, hence a little bit heavier, but not necessarily. If that Sprinter had a petrol engine the clutch would be just as heavy. It all depends on how it's designed. It's something you live with and accept when driving a manual.

    Yes because if a diesel has less than 1000 Nm it's a slow piece of lalalala......

    I know a guy in sweden currently tuning a 1.9l Peugeot diesel engine, completely rebuilding it and aiming for around 250 bhp!

    So why do you have a 550d at all? :P Why not a 528d or 520d? You could cut the monthly costs in half with that. --- Post Updated --- Anyway someone mentioned diesel sports cars?

    I was at a BMW Tour thing today where they let you testdrive various BMW cars. The most awesome one there that i tried was the BMW X550d with X-Drive and Steptronic auto gearbox. Dear god in heaven that car moved! It was so quick! It was just like, "i'm just gonna drop a few gears and try a little" and immediately you were at 100 mph :D Might not be a "sports car" as such since it's a big SUV. But it was fast like one. :D
  11. Don't need no Cold Air Intakes with temperatures like these http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20140113_162627_zpse1a19ec5.jpg
  12. People do that with entire engines here. Put the original motor in for MOT and then when they pass and get back home they simply lift the 800 BHP engine back in the car :)
  13. In Finland: New cars get a free MOT pass for the first 3 years. Thereafter it's once every year. I don't think they would fail a car MOT just because of tinted windows, as long as it's only the back windows. Front and front-side windows are not allowed tinting at all. They even complained to my brother for having a small tinted stripe at the top of the windshield (homemade, but professionally done, for protection against the sun) tho they didn't fail him, just a "warning" to get it removed.
  14. Yeah i'm not worried :D It'll take a damn sight more to wear one of these out! Not too shabby fuel economy there ;) 43 MPG! After another 100 km it dropped to 42 MPG tho :( Kept it mostly on the cruise control at 80-85 km/h. http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20131231_182628_zps6d146863.jpg
  15. Hit 50.000 km today while driving :( My poor old worn out RCZ :D http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20131230_160859_zps43b1d54e.jpg Also repainted the car to "Winter White" like every other time you move the car one inch... Rinsed the worst off afterwards tho. http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n62/Rx_37/20131230_171514_zpse09634ba.jpg
