But before getting behind the wheel, I was advised to partake of another service one that enables absolute beginners to experience the circuit from the back of a taxi. It might sound a bit tame, but the Nordschleife “Ring Taxis” are 560hp, 190mph BMW M5 saloons with extra throaty exhaust pipes.

Focus STs are WAAAAY more fun than a 328i, and they sold brand new for less than 24k. Find a lightly used one for 15k and get way more practicality from it due to it being a hatch. Will also come with significantly lower insurance payments and exponentially less in maintenance costs. You can go less practical with a Mazda MX 5, those are fun as hell. I could go on, but I have a feeling that recommending other cars isn going to convince you.

The LFA was a very limited edition super car (only a handful were sold in a handful of markets Australia only received 20) and Lexus actually lost money on building each and every model of it despite its ridiculous asking price (over $700,000 AUD Down Under). In fact, this was Japan’s first proper re entry into the super car market since Honda stopped building the NSX in 2005

It sucks but it won always be this way, they are balancing getting sales and making a profit with all the expense of an auto manufacture while being a newborn automaker with tremendous growth. What they are going through right now is not easy and unfortunately for the time being some people are getting the short end of the stick while they sort everything out.

Finishes In bfakn.club an effort to keep things inexpensive, most importers stock a selection of 6 8 cabinet doors and styles/finishes. You can’t mix and match. If you are fond of the “Brighton” door, you had better reconcile yourself to the finish it comes in. The finishes are typically water based or use atypical solvent properties, so repair can be a problem if you need to touch up a scratch. It’s not uncommon for the finish to wipe right off with a rag that has the repair material on it. Stains are always applied with spray equipment as opposed to wiped on with a rag, an issue which often leads to color drift from batch to batch and different colors from piece to piece (such as a filler compared to a door). Glazes are applied with a marker pen as opposed to true glazing which is wiped on the whole surface and then wiped back off and left to hang in the profiles.

However, the person who first developed a rotor was Abraham Louis Perrelet (1729 1826), one of Switzerland’s greatest watchmakers of all time, considered the father of the automatic watch. He introduced the concept in 1770 and was way ahead of his time since the invention was better suited to wristwatches and Perrelet lived in the pocket watch era. Obviously, the watches couldn’t move in pockets enough to wind the mainspring, so the rotor system didn’t perform well. Another Swiss watchmaker, Abraham Louis Breguet (1747 1823) improved self winding watches and named them “perpetuelles” (the likely source of Rolex’s term). Other watchmaking greats of the 19th century advanced the concept. But it wasn’t until World War I that Rolex perfected its system and automatic watches became popular.

I would be concerned about keeping a nicer car safe being that your beater already got broken in to. I am a sucker for toys of the four wheeled variety, but maybe it would be better to just buy reliable transportation in cash right now and allocate your income to getting your down payment put together to get in to a house (assuming you’re going to continue to live in the area for a while)Car guy here. A civic is nearly as fast (if you not a car person you won notice the acceleration difference), handles better, and has way more luxury features than a 328i. The only two things the 328i has on a Civic is better ride quality and less road noise. If you actually looking for a car that is fun to drive, you can do much, much better for way less money. But seriously, another note on features, the BMW 3 series fully loaded has a serious lack of luxury features compared to all economy brands: Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, and Kia all have more and better features than 3 series BMWs.

I think so, waaaaay too big back to front. We didn’t get a chance to “properly” install it, we put the base in there, buckled it and I held it at the right angle (according to the bubbles) from the drivers seat while DH (dear husband) tried to put the carrier in. We couldnt find a way to adjust the angle otherwise and didnt have the manual. Once in, the passenger seat went back and smashed fully into the carrier and didnt “click” into place, so the passenger seat was now dangerously loose and unlocked. :/

That said, my wife forgot to charge my i3 one night and I was almost stranded. luckily I limped into a BMW dealership that had one and 10 minutes later I had enough to get home. not particularly a big deal, if it had been AC I would have left 30 minutes later.

You put off running an errand just so you can run it in the i3 instead of the old gas car. I got a supercharged jag in my garage that gathers dust, because frankly, I rather be driving the i3. And I say that not just because it cheaper although it STAGGERINGLY cheaper to drive the little electric car.

Not “only in South Africa”, even Gordon Brown is being hauled over the coals for spending too much government money on personal items. Seems all politicians are the same worldwide. We are kidding ourselves in voting for their election “promises”. Every politician of every creed only cares about lining their own pockets and then they incite us with their pretty speeches (never written by themselves)to turn against each other because of all the problems they have created. Booooo to all politicians and their greed. Good luck to every private citizen you’re on your own, mate!

Don forget your 140k is before taxes, you will also have bills like housing, food, etc.Buying a new car is more than just sticker price. You will have insurance, maintenance, sales tax, property tax (if your state does that), and BMWs are not the most reliable cars out there.Buy a used car with a reliable history, assuming you actually need one to get to and from work, and you be just fine.

Its also interesting to think that the Prius battery causes more damage to the environment during its creation, than a car does in 10 years of driving. I find it hard to believe we cant do better than this? Power from the spin of the wheels? power from the air gushing over the speeding vehicle, the rain that lands on it, the sun hitting the roof. And they cant use any of that? As you said, we have all these computers. laptops that can run for 7+ hours on a small battery. But our cars. Nope!

8) Amy Klobuchar. Her intentions seem good. Her execution was almost a parody of a politician. Her positions are kinda just a wash across the middle. I didn get a good feel for what she did or didn care about and it seemed like she just going with the flow whereever the wind blows. Pretty much the generic (D).

The second generation Eclipse (1995 1999) came with a number of different engines, both naturally aspirated and turbocharged. The RS and GS models came with a 140 hp Chrysler engine, and the GS Spyder came with a slightly larger (2.4 L instead of 2.0 L) Mitsubishi engine. These trim levels, in addition to the GS T (with a 210 hp 2.0 L Mitsubishi powerplant) came with FWD. All second generation Eclipses came with either a four speed automatic or a five speed manual for drivers who prefer to use both feet. Mitsubishi used smaller turbos in the second generation compared to the first in order to reduce turbo lag, so the boost from the turbo will come more quickly. Convertible versions of the GS and GS T were also built. Expect to spend anywhere from $3,500 $10,00 depending on the trim (it’ll be more for the turbo), mileage, and condition.

We have two Diono Radian RXTs and I’m not sure what the third carseat is. I’m thinking a Graco or Safety 1st? All three are across in the backseat. One Radian is forward facing my 3 year old on the passenger side, the other Radian is rear facing in the middle for the baby and the third car seat (which will not be in there all the time) is forward facing his 2.5 year old on the driver side. I have a Kia Sorento, but anyone will tell you those Diono Radians are super slim and work well in a lot of vehicles.

The 458 is also the first Ferrari to completely get rid of all stalks behind the steering wheel of the car and replace daily driver functions like indicating, turning the headlights on and off and the wiper blades into buttons on the steering wheel of the car a first for almost any mainstream manufacturer.

In the 1990’s there’s the Dodge Viper, which was radically different than anything being sold at the time. There was also the influx of Japanese cars that might someday be considered classics, like the Acura NSX. Then there’s cars like the Plymouth Prowler, which wasn’t very well received by consumers but might be rare enough to someday demand a premium.Norah Caseyposted 9 years agoin reply to thisI would love to have a GNX.

In regards to REx, everything will effect range: temperature, speed, number of passengers, interior cabin heat/cool, wind direction, most recent driving efficiency. I can depart for IU (55 miles one way) with a full battery charge showing 95 miles (and the REx usually slightly under this for another 85 miles) and arrive at the destination with battery at 10 miles at >56 mph) when it starts at 6% charge. To solve for this, you have to slow down. On most interstates with posted 70 mph, its not safe to be driving 55. My approach has become to assume that the estimated battery mileage will drop considerably over the trip, by 50%, and so the best plan is to finder a public charger at the turn around point. You can run the REx through its 2 gals, refuel and get another 30 miles, but again this needs to be at much less than 70 mph. When you get home, the REx will be screaming at you, hot, fans blowing.

No, you retard! I used the word that I did because it had the exact meaning that I wanted to use! How fucking difficult is that to understand that someone can use words that portray the exact idea they want to portray? Like for fuck sake, specific words have better uses in specific contexts. Stop trying to impart your own bullshit on me. I done with your terrible examples, just goddamned stop trying this. You are wrong, and always will be wrong, because I used the word with the exact meaning I wanted. Not the word that you goddamn want. The rules of language are very clear, you don get to decide them.

Obviously they woud say that it was a big setback so they can “blame” most things for it if the development would have gone wrong. As would do any other manufacturer. About the factory mindset, what the point in using MTEK for developing the car when BMW have Team Schnitzer that is a much more experienced, proven team in both car developing and endurance racing? What the point in leaving the WEC after just one season, when the road car isn even ready.

Instead, the real money can be made with Ferraris that have a racing heritage. Bonhams sold a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO in 2014 for $38.1 million, which set a new world auction record at the time. That was broken four years later, when RM Sotheby’s found a buyer willing to drop $48.4 million for one. A third 250 GTO exchanged hands for $70 million in a private sale.

This morning my MIL (mother in law) got into a small accident with DS (dear son) in the car. He’s fine, but now we need to get new car seats (might as well get the convertibles now). DS (dear son) is four months old and about 16 pounds and I’m not sure about how long he is, but he has short legs like we do. We want something that will keep him rear facing for a long time, so at least 40 pounds rf. DH (dear husband) has a 2002 BMW X5, I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant and MIL (mother in law) has a small sedan. She and I would share the our convertible as our cars would be used the least amount of time. What are your recommendations?

NSU was a giant in the motorcycle industry in the 1950s. For a time they were the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world. They had considerable success with racing in the ’50s, especially the Isle of Man TT races. They set many records and were highly regarded. The Fox isn’t a super fast racing bike; it’s a small city bike. It does have a nice look to it. I have a tendency to like sheet metal frames and springer seats though. It has a small 98cc four stroke engine and was know for being reliable.

I am almost positive we are going to get the Britax Roundabout 55 but just wanted to hear any reviews from people that might already have one. I’ve researched (until my eyes crossed pratically) about every car seat out there and there seems to be no comparison with the Britax’s safety record and reliability. We plan on getting 2 one for my car an SUV but also one for my dh’s car. He drives a BMW 3 series so the size is going to be important to be able to get it in rear facing into his car. Anyone want to give me their 2 cents or experience?

Watch movement is the mechanism that measures the passage of time and, in some models, also displays the current date. Movements may be entirely mechanical, electronic, or a blend of the two. Most watches today have automatic movements, which means the motion of the wrist and body cause the rotor (a metal weight attached to a winding mechanism) to pivot.

Three months after Ellison’s win, on May 6, the first press conference for the 34th America’s Cup took place. To an audience eagerly awaiting a clear direction, BMW Oracle’s CEO Russell Coutts reiterated that co operation, fair rules, mutual consent and independent management would set this new cycle apart from that of the last event. He went to great lengths to reinforce his view that the future of the Cup was for the Cup fraternity and its advisers to plan and not the sole responsibility of the Cup holders.
