If I can ever get the seat built, mine will look a lot like that euro version, just with small tires.
If gas goes to 5.00 a gal , they will sell like hotcakes.
Yeah, I did the math on my TDI and wasn't pleased with the results. Essentially a $6,000 premium over the 2.5L in the std mkVI Golf and during the time I drove it, diesel was consistently more expensive than gas. But it was a heckuva lot more fun to drive.I have never bought the MPG argument...
Thats great !I have to put 15,692.3 miles on the Z125 to break even.
Normally I would be horrified, but these engines are so simple I'm actually weirdly looking forward to tearing it apart....I expect few of us will see much over that before a top end rebuild is needed.
(I may have doctored that quote a bit.) Totally agreed. Even at half that with a 33 mile commute it takes me twice as long to get to work/home because I'm pushed off the freeway. Maybe I could justify it if I were riding some cool twisty roads but I'm risking getting run over by an inattentive driver to ride on crappy industrial frontage roads and spend twice as much of my life commuting... Forget that noise.If you have a 60+ mile round trip each day and you do it on a Z125, you're an idiot.
AFAIK Slushbox = An inefficient and/or poorly shifting automatic transmission. I believe this is a direct reference to torque converters but not certain.What is a slushbox ?
Never! Keep the forum weird!What if i just shut up now !
