  • You don’t get what luxury is.

  • I would like to see how Wizard modifies the oil pan baffle to solve the oil slash issue. The best way to avoid the oil starvation is the dry sump. Because the excessive G force on the track could keep the oil stay in the cylinder head. May be try deep sump with a better baffle if the ground clearance is not issue.

  • I’d put a BMW N55 straight six in that or a Supra 2jz engine in it just to be different. I think the car Ninja would be tested on the BMW swap.

  • GOOD. GAWD. 😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲😲

  • I changed my overhead lights with LED's. It made the inside look much brighter.

  • I have a 2019 Chevy Express Explorer Conversion Van

  • I just did the oil cooler seals and timing chain on my 07 Gl320. Cleaning up the intake runners and intake ports was horrible. Had it down for a month and this is not a fun job. You must ad a Provent catch can to keep the oil out of the turbo inlet and intake. You can’t imagine how much oily sludge accumulates in this OM642 engine.

  • It's funny there is an x5 on the lift next to it

  • 11:10 Seriously? It’s easier to replace a Holley carburetor than rebuild it? Holley is easy to work on. How cheap is a new Holley these days?

  • I love buying cars like this. That engine block isn’t special, so while a complete alpina assembly is expensive, the actual failed component isn’t. Same thing with rebuilding the supercharger.

  • Ive dun a bunch of these. N u all have fkd up. Wrong fluid wrong hole. Mark my words people! 😏

  • Anything used is "buyer beware", even a cougar. No, not the one with four wheels.

  • The absolute savages rejected love by car wizard. Hoovie says "i love you" Car wizard: that's nice take care and give me your bank account info to charge you.

  • Hey Wasn’t the 2005 Mercedes Benz owned or partnered with Chrysler back then? Chrysler are nice looking- but horrible reliability☹️. Remember how Ford owned Land Rover & the were terrible.

  • Could be the dealer figured "$6,000 911? Don't scare the guy off with the full estimate- we'll break it to him slowly as we go..." I avoid my local dealer unless I absolutely have to go, knowing they roll their eyes when I pull in with my 20-year-old Boxster. There isn't another car there within a hundred grand of mine. Would it help if I wore a top hat and a monocle and maybe twirled a cane?

  • You could have probably more than likely fixed this car with new seals 😂😂

  • Is there an aftermarket replacement seal that has a longer life than the BMW one?

  • SSB, good to know, they will never get my business!

  • My first car was a 96 Deville that my grandfather gave to me. Ironically, the engine was the most reliable thing on the car. First, the air suspension went and that was $1200 per corner. Then the brakes went. Then the transmission sprung a leak. Then the alternator died, then the blend door, then the compressor, condenser, and tensioner. Sold it and got a brand new Focus which ate two transmissions in 26k under warranty. And people wonder why nobody wants to buy American! Toyota/Honda/Hyundai for me from now on.

  • My 97 has a button to switch it to 4X4. Still my favorite vehicle. And funny enough my daily driver.

  • Why wasn’t the coolant flushed and replaced after the car had sat for approximately five years??!

  • It's Not the Car.. It's the Artwork... You See the 356 Porsche is a Work of Art... It's Not a "Car" as much as it is.. A Very Beautiful Creation of Art... ;)

  • It's called Mail Fraud!

  • My grandparents had a 1997 Chevy Suburban, blue and tan 2 tone throughout my childhood. Although my parent’s 2001 Durango was always my favorite, I have so many awesome memories in that suburban which cemented my love for the GMT400 series. The good news is the Suburban is still going strong for another owner

  • Sold my 96 GMC Suburban back in January. Bought a 98 Chevy Suburban 4x4 with 129k on it today for $3500. Just need to replace ps pump and put a radio in it. Here's to hoping my gamble pays off 🤞

  • lol not many left ??? I see a gang of these bitches riding around

  • wanna do me a favor and come over to my place and buy my civic for $100,000?

  • I bought a 2005 E320 CDI a few years ago and it’s the best driving car I’ve ever had very dependable also.

  • Great job!

  • I don't know what disease you have but I definitely have the same

  • 12:54 me and the boys rolling up to the party

  • Of course its disappointing. It's a Fiat product. It was a cute idea but completely and totally worthless. Can't tow shit. Can't haul nothing. Way way overpriced. Ugly as hell. Unreliable from day one.

  • These c2s are going for $150k+ in Aus.

  • Ls swap

  • The person who is reading this comment, I wish you great success, health, love, happiness and a lots of positive energy. 🖤😊🔥

  • Hoovie,, please change the entry music, something more vibrant😉why do you buy these decrepit cars..? BMW translation= Big Mother Wallet.....🙄

  • Just LS swap it lol

  • Lotus market today be like: "Oh boy 40 grand!"

  • I can't believe how many times I've heard that an old BMW isn't worth fixing because the parts are too costly. There is no way I will ever buy a used BMW.

  • File a complaint with Ebay as well as paypal.

  • I haven't gotten very far but I'm praying for a better LS to stay.

  • Cheap how much is cheap I've never seen a cheap Corvette ever ??

  • Zero chance that metallic is original 66

  • "I am bad with endings..." Tyler Hoover

  • Almost bought a conversion Suburban a few years ago, but it broke down on the test drive. My brother put over 300k on his, did his own work to keep it running that long.

  • Don't blame Frank for your problems

  • Tyler! 👋🏽 What is that snippet of music at 2:41 please??

  • Cool

  • Spider @5:50

  • Is that a Conquest TSI in the background?

  • Try evaporust! So nice this car, congrats!

  • So "a ton of problems" turned into not really too many problems at all. Click bait achieved.

  • Ha! Nice touch with the pink and owl duct tape! 😎😂

  • Girl trucks

  • Watching this channel is like watching me, enthusiastic but sorta clueless... then watch Vice or Junkyard...

  • What tha taste like weezerd, omg that was funny cupcake, kudos

  • Just do a giveaway

  • Real American Heroes. 👍

  • Who are the mechanics that work for $200?

  • I still love the expedition and excursion ford had.

  • Narrator from the future: “he did not take it as a learning experience, he never did follow that sensible advice”

  • Used to always want one of those. But.. dodge.

  • I've got an old Ford 302 that will go right in there.

  • You should never buy a BMW.....PERIOD.

  • If It was a Muncie it would be called a Stone crusher 4 speed they were ok back in the day. They just didn't like to take a beating to well.

  • how much mileage on those old cars before it starts to break?!?!?

  • A HRdownr who has a Rolls Royce Phantom and a Mercedes S Class and now just bought another car worth $15,000! How much does HRdown videos make you? Damn I am in the wrong country!

  • I don't care if people steal my Lamborghini Countach. I like newer cars.

  • POS

  • Keep the Countache. Its a classic and 25th anniversary. Please keep the countache. It is iconic and what made lambo popular in the 80s

  • Time to start a new channel called Pimp My Hooptie. Instant HRdown sensation.

  • I would definitely unload it and put the money toward trying to get a first-generation Countach

  • mistake was buying a Rubicon. If you are not a serious off roader then why bother? Sacrificing ride, comfort , towing capacity and fuel economy. I have the Overland version and I love mine. Had it over a year now, runs great, drives great, better fuel economy than my friends Rubicon version and I tow with it, go off road when I want, no problems.

  • These things were only $42,000 MSRP NEW back in 1999

  • I hope he fix it . Iam watching very close , good luck figured having lift helps

  • I grew up near Cuba...Illinois. Right down the road from Havana. Stopped in Cuba MO on the way to Anderson MO near Neosho.

  • I know exactly what you are talking about I've had four piece of junk North Stars never again

  • the diablo >>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • Henry Ford once demanded an itemized receipt for a 10k bill. Guy replied thusly. Chalk mark: $1. Where to put chalk mark: $9999. Ford cut him a check.

  • 1st world problems.
