Here finally my "Sport Car" - Mazda MX6

*Thumb no longer works, so click on it if you have interest in non-stretching mode version


I receive it in exchange to renovation work on our home long time ago. White was not my favorite color for a car and because rusty popup a lot more with time!



I taken the jOb to repaint it entirely to have a little personalization and like you see him not a purist in the domain, I cleaned it maybe 2 time only. It have a rain washer look...





I redone every white I saw










Rust start to bite it again, it look GoOd at first look, but dont look under!!
Soon I will have a Flintstones car

You re-sprayed the car yourself?

Good job, you did a thorough job it seems!? Did you blast it and treat the rust, then primer it, spray and seal with lacquer or did you just spray the paint over the top?

But DAMN you need to wash your car!

At the latest meet I went to, one of the guys was taking some photos which I managed to get a hold of!

Only small part details, I can but my father finally spray it, I did everything else...

About the color selection, I browsed 1 hour in 2 big book, after picked my favorite color, it was written under a BMW code, still great taste for colorblind eYes

Long time ago, when the dominance color was by far grey on every car, I tried to spot a nice blue (kind of standard/royal base, but 2 tones a bit darker navy "in shadow curve of the vehicle" but not too much & lighter blue in direct sun/light deflection)... One day waiting at a red light, I saw a jeep stop near me with this kind of color and it sealed my idea instantly. Few years later, maybe not the vast dominance color, but this kind of blue and more vivid color was definitely the trend...

Lol, definitely, I want the paint stay on the car!

Nah Rain is enough normally, but in the picture it have an overdose of mud. I will try to wash it at least once a summer.


I cannot see the picture - broken link?...

My 9-3 2.0 Turbo has been repaired in April 2012





A few parts look different but overall the 9-3 I is the same car as the 900II aka 900NG. Except for the performance.



I have yet again given it the same color sheme, orange stripes and orange rims but went a little further. In addition a self-made "Turbo" sticker using the classic Saab Turbo font and painted some interior orange . I have also tuned it to stage2 using more/earlier boost. I have spent a lot of money in the entire thing actually. (changed oil 4 times so far, the oilsump was dirty which could block the filter thus preventing the oil from flowing, had to repair gearbox a 2nd time, installed a new wastegate actuator and bypass valve etc....)

Some people may not even notice I'm driving another car. But at least I can tell.....it's hell a lot of fun Between natural aspirated 130hp and turbo charged 200hp (+stage2) are poles apart. I'm only driving it for some fun times.

Hey mate.

Looking Good
Thats a hell of a jump in power!

My little 1.4 ZR is 105 BHP I think.

Take a look at what you can get though... >Link<

Serious cash though! Some guys chuck a T-Series Rover engine in to the ZR's, which is a 2.0L Turbo and can be tuned to 250BHP for a couple of hundred pounds.

I do wish I had gone for the 160BHP 1.8 version, but I love my car and its low mileage so am happy. If I ever get another one, will be the 160

Tempted to get a remap done by "Z & F Tuning". They are ex-MG Rover mechanics who worked on creating the original maps, and have managed to get more power & economy and can remap your car. It also gives you loads more Torque low down the rev range (K-Series power band is around 3.5k + Revs. Tempting. Only downside is the price tag!

Nice and awesome evil looking car inf3rnus! 3,8l and V6 should go well together.
I could never afford that kind of mileage here in germany.

Perhaps you can find other workshops which can do that for you.

It's nothing more than plugging your ECU to the PC/Laptop with a cable, read data - modify data (either through Tuning Wizards, by templates or by hand) - write data...done.

I've done that with a guy I've found on the forums to my car. It already had power - however you (human) always want more. Actually the Saab suffers from torque steer, it "slides"/steers to either left or right under heavy torque. I've installed a steering rack clamp and brace to avoid that. Safety first. (but it's not fully fixed especially under very heavy acceleration at low speeds and wide tyres (245mm))

So I went to the guy, took the ECU out of the car and plugged to the laptop. He wrote the data to it and we installed it back again.
On the first test drive we weren't sure if it changed or not. "Maybe the ECU needs to adapt first?". Then we were like...hummm yeah maybe it's a little stronger now! Maybe..
lol Placebo much.
We went back and decided to push the tuning a little further. And had to notice that the first time we wrote the original, not the modified data back to the ECU. lol So this time we did it right.

On the next test drive we were pretty much constantly laughing (I knew something was changed the first few meters only by looking at the turbo gauge), wheels were spinning, torque was pressing. It was just so much more aggressive, even in the lower rpms

Mileage has not been improved. Most likely the opposite. But that is because I'm using the power more often since it's available and so enjoyable.. that kind of tuning of course wears down the parts much faster. Improving mileage cannot be the reason since you cannot save that much money to compensate for damaging the car.

Believe it or not, it's actually the body of an Opel Omega with a Buick engine in it. And mileage isn't that bad in it really. I get about 500km to a tank. Mind you the car isn't running so well at the moment and I'm reluctant to do any work on it as I've just purchased a newer Commodore. Still a 3.8L but with much less mileage on the engine and also a wagon body. I'll post pics as soon as I get it. Should be in a few weeks. The fuel consumption in my new VY commodore running a stock engine is at about 9 litres per 100km which is great considering fuel in Australia is at about $1.40 - $1.50 a litre at the moment.

The VT had 147kw (197hp) of power whereas the VY has 152kw (205hp). Minor increase in power but I'll have a much more reliable, not to mention practical, car that has a lot of potential to be worked. In a V6 sense, at least. I could supercharge it or strap a turbo on the front but like you said... Any strain on the motor will reduce its longevity, really. I'll probably just do some minor engine mods to give it a little more kick. I'm more interested in aesthetics of cars, anyway.

Well... my Backbox has gone! lol!

My centre section went a little while back as we had some serious floods and had to drive through some pretty deep water! (Not good when the car sits lower than most cars as standard!)

It did fine, but a month or two on and the centre started blowing. got that replaced, but now the backbox has gone, and gone BAD! lol.

So decided to bite the bullet and ordered a Stainless Steel backbox (made by Janspeed) which was designed for the MG ZR. Hoping to get it by this time next week!

Thought I would update this thread...

Still driving my MG ZR.

I'm commuting 75+ Miles per day now, so aprox 20k Miles per year.

I got my remap done in the end, and at a discounted price for organising a group remapping session!

Notice a bit more power across the rev range, not much but enough and its extended the power band lower down the rev range.

I've also been getting better MPG.

Thats also a link to my Fuelly page.

Whats everyone currently driving? Any changes to your cars?
I'm not sure what I've mentioned previously, but I've fitted a strut brace to stiffen up the body roll and boy does it feel good going round corners!

Still aiming to get footwell LED's done. I have the bits bought, and I started to get stuff done, then went to solder and the soldering iron doesn't work! So it's waiting for me to get that sorted. I've also got some OEM sideskirts to match the rest of the car (Should have come from the factory with them), just need them sprayed to match as one is Green!

Havent seen a thread something like this But ok.. i may not have any cars yet , but id like to have an example the Cadillac Fleetwood 1968 (there arent any of these in my country but lets just say that i have a wicked taste for 60' to 80' classic cars! ) Even the muscle ones and lowriders too.
