: The Fantasy Tuning Thread

11th April 2007, 03:38 PM
Alright, thanks to a fantastic tangent off of the lambo thread, I decided to start a fantasy tuning thread. Based on the current car we have now, what kind of modifications we would do if we had an UNLIMITED budget. I'm pretty sure that we will be seeing a lot of FWD to AWD conversions... :roll:

Man I don't even know where to start... Chris got me all riled up with his wide-body kit idea... I think I'm gonna go play with photoshop and see if I can't make a wide-body kit for these cars...

GOGOGO! Maybe this thread will become a sticky! :p

Here is a question, how many people would pay for a widebody kit for a 9-5 and how much would one be worth to you. I know there would be a limited market for this but I mean like 4 to 6 inches on each side. I was considering this for mine :)

11th April 2007, 06:25 PM
Oh god... I could see that being very very spendy but I want it really bad! It would definitely be a cool look that wouldn't trash the car up.

...Why do you ask...? Do you have the means to build something like this...?

11th April 2007, 06:32 PM
Well I would build a initial one in maybe a month in my garage using fiberglass. This would be a DTM Touring style kit, not rice, but pretty authentic as looks go. If course if I do this I also need the Big Brake Kit and 19" BBS CH's.

I would love to be able to do this, but as of now money does not, and will not for a long time, allow me to do this. Being a college student I'm pretty sure all I can do for now is dream. :cry:

I'd get the 2 hail dings taken out of my roof and repaint my front lip spoiler. :cheesy:

Oh, and lambo doors too!

Hahaha you just can't get enough of that can you?

wouldn't a wide body "kit" for a 9-5 look extremely ricey? I mean if you were actually able to stretch it wider, say by 4 inches using photoshop that's one thing... but actually adding a kit to the outside... well don't let me rain on this parade.

my "fantasy" 9-5 isn't as extreme as a wide body, AWD or V8... in fact it's pretty straight forward.

03 Hirschized 9-5 sedan, suspension and bumper with clear corners and 300hp or so. while I prefer an auto I might consider a manual with a limited slip. silver with tan interior, a bit lighter than normal. light burlwood dash, steering wheel, shifter and door handles. soup up the navigation system to include dvd player and mp3 player using bluetooth. monochrome, the exterior would look similar to this but with different wheels (yet to be determined)

not all too radical now is it?

11th April 2007, 11:39 PM
Actually that's pretty close to what I would do as well. Hirsch body with the monochrome touches as well...make the interior graphite, the dash and knob in CF and make the manual trans with LSD pushing around 400hp. Nav, dvd, all that as well... Good stuff. Rims? I'd have like 5 sets to switch up whenever I felt like a new look. I love the 9-5 in that pic. Sooooo nice.

I'd like a 9-5 that got better than 18mpg around London. :cry:

Wide body 9-3SS

12th April 2007, 04:17 PM
I always go back and forth between hating that 9-3SS and loving it. Have you seen the pics of the intercooler? It so ridiculously huge, you just have to laugh. AWD conversion with the widebody would be very nice though.

My "dream 9-5" would be in black with the hirsch body kit, minus spoiler, gunmetal 18" RKII's with polished lip, GT3071R and associated sw and hw with FMIC, In-Dash touchscreen NAV/DVD/MP3 with bluetooth, WiFi, EV-DO and AutoEnginuity(for on screen display of boost, A/F, Oil pressure/temp etc etc instead of gauges), slightly upgraded sound system, full coilovers, ESP/TCS delete, LSD, Quaife 6spd gearset, tinted head/tail lights, color matched body trim, dual magnaflow exhaust with polished oval tips, black and chrome Saab badges with matching wheel caps.... thats all for now :)

And I'll get it there, eventually...
