      Hi Everyone!

      Is anyone here into their cars or motorsports in general?

      I'm a big fan of anything car-related, just wondering if anyone else here shared a similar interest?

      If so, do you wear plugs if inside a loud car or whatever?

      Thanks,
      Liam

      2 dirt bikes.... Always wear ear plugs. They're 4 stroke so they are not that loud. I carry my ear plugs with me everywhere. I always put them in in any potentially loud situation.

      I have a '69 Mustang. I've posted a picture of it here before:

      I don't wear earplugs, since it doesn't feel that loud. Though I do sometimes take out my hearing aids because of wind noise.

      Awesome to see that theres so many people here into their engines and stuff!

      Awesome Mustang man!

      I wish that F40 was mine lol, a man can dream!

      I have a fairly loud car but will be wearing earplugs from now on etc, is everyone else ok on here when they were plugs? I just worry sometimes maybe the low frequency noises may spike my T but what's the point in stopping your passion... You may aswell be dead in that case...

      Again awesome to see there are fellow car nuts here :D

      I have a loud car too, unfortunately it's just a civic with a dumb exhaust on it (have wanted to return it to a stock one even before I got T). Anyways, I wear my earplugs if I am going to drive high speeds for awhile because the drone can mess with my ears. But when I get a new car I probably won't wear them very much while driving, unless I plan to drive hard (like an autocross or something cause there are 0 fun roads in my region).
      Never quit your passion.

      Yeah, I dont wear plugs if Im in a friends car or family members car because unlike me they dont care for going fast or extracting more power from their cars lol.

      Different story with my own car though lol, I'm going to try and quieten it down though anyway as I'm sure it will probably get me in trouble with the law, I have a little 2 litre Turbo, but it's pushing close to 550bhp :D

      Cool man, you have good taste. After I start my career I think I want to get an m235i. Same class, similar price, and similar performance, stock at least haha. You should send me the link to your youtube channel.
