Starting it up on my way to work at 6 am is the equivalent to someone waking you up by screaming in your ear.
The car was supercharged and made about 600 horsepower which was awesome till stuff started breaking and I ran into a million problems. Eventually I was repairing something every 2 or 3 weeks. It took 2 months just to solve one problem that turned out to be a MAP sensor, but I almost replace the entire ECU because NO ONE could pin it down, so I just guessed.
Another big thing was how paranoid I was. When you spend 2 years completely customizing the car, and I mean COMPLETELY. Like, I repainted the entire thing, new spoiler, new front bumper, new hood, custom wheels that took 6 months to make, and all this stuff. I got really paranoid of leaving it anywhere or even driving it. I knew if anyone hit me or i got in a wreck, i'd be paying TONS to fix it and get it exactly how it was.
I couldn't drive it in the rain because of traction, and I could have fixed this by buying suspension components, but I was already spending so much to maintain it (dont forget the 8mpg cause of how rich i had it running), I didnt want to put even more into it.
If this was a weekend car or a track car, I would still have it, but I just couldn't live with it anymore. I had to get something else. I wound up with a 2008 BMW M3 and a 2012 Maserati Granturismo. If I'm completely honest, I wish I kept it. I miss the car. I shouldn't have sold something I put so much work into. Should've bought the M3 and kept the Camaro as a weekender
I'm not desperate, I'm just trying to locate it.
Doubt it. If you have proof, that'd be something to see.
So let me get this straight. You hate having a powerful car you can't drive in the rain. A loud car. A car that costs too much to maintain. So you buy a Maserati?
If you "have" the money, and you talk like you have a bunch, why did you get rid of it....r-e-a-l-l-y. Were you scared of it? I don't think the question of who buys a full custom superchared 8mpg SS and doesn't get on the site. I would ask who drives that as a daily when you have an M3? ONE if not THE most comfortable daily driveable vehicles with a maintenance program that can't be touched?
I hope you find it, but in the mean time, I do not understand this. I would believe a divorce forced you to for a court order, or being scared. That's a lot of money to dump into something just to walk out one morning and say "Ahh, it's too loud. Selling you after work today."
