15) Beto O All talk no substance. You absolutely could tell he way out of his depth, and had to rely on stories and being relatable. That great for a House rep, OK for a Senator, absolutely not enough for President. Presidents must have past results and plan for future results and a story is far from both. He didn even bother adapting after he visibly realized his strategy wasn working and just gave up.
Maybe get an older Mazda Miata if you want a sports car. Those are seriously a ton of fun to drive. Take the difference and put it in a mutual fund of some kind and maybe go on a vacation before you enter the workforce. Experiences trump things anyway..
Later if you must get an prestigious badged car (It arguable in SoCal if any of the big 3 german brands can be viewed as prestigious short of the $150k+ semi exotics), go buy an 3 year old CPO BMW for 50% of MSRP while still having 2 3 more years of CPO warranty coverage.
It was under warranty after all, right? I felt like I was an alien They are not used to people taking out their batteries apparently. They advised me to replace the battery and have it towed to the dealership. Which I did.I did learn something today. The tow truck operator used a jump starter and it ran fine.
If you don have a huge commute and rarely put on more than 20 30 miles in a day, that charger will work just fine.If you end up using up the whole charge in a single day though. and need a full charge by next morning. things get dicer.It takes this car 18 20 hours to fully charge from empty using the included level 1 charger, and obviously you can do that overnight.That where a L2 charger comes in.
/ Matthew SheahanEmailTwitterPinterestFacebookAs BMW Oracle Racing’s USA 17 crossed the finishing line for the second and final time on February 14 2010, winning the world’s oldest international sporting trophy had cost the team roughly $720,000 per minute. At least, that was the best guess by experts who have suggested that BMW Oracle Racing’s campaign for the 33rd America’s Cup cost as much as $200m. But even this extraordinary sum spent during three years of preparation for two races that lasted a total of 4 hours and 39 minutes didn’t really reveal the true expense. Software billionaire Larry Ellison’s crusade for the America’s Cup started with the formation of his team in 2000, yet despite being among the best funded, his 2002 2003 and 2007 campaigns both failed to get the team into the position of eventual challenger. If the costs of these endeavours were taken into account, the final tally for Ellison’s success could be as much as $500m.
So I hate to do this because I tried to use this exact argument as to how it not so much Tesla leading the charge into a BEV future, but governments, but so far (unless something had changed in the past 6 months) none of those countries have any sort of signed and ratified legislation those dates are just promises/pledges. Maybe they will happen, maybe they won It likely depend on the feasibility of actually banning ICE/PHEV vehicles at the time. I suspect those who set 2025 dates will push those back. I suspect those who set 2040 dates might be ok. That said, 20 years of more PHEV and less pure ICE is absolutely a good step and absolutely part of the solutions.
June 02 2017EmailTwitterPinterestFacebookDedicated BMW owners always knew. They have long and very happy memories when it comes to the big 8 Series coups of the 1990s, and there was always talk that Bayerische Motoren Werke would revive the Series 8 legacy, reinvent it. Now there is a powerful, beautiful new Concept 8 Series sports coupfrom one of the world’s great car makers.
It would be a shame, yes it a big car, but it only had one season. It takes more than a season sometimes for a car to reach it stride.There exceptions, some vehicles are competitive out of the gate, the Mustang in V8 supercars in 2019 (although Dick Johnson Racing/Penske generally does not mess around when they can commit), but it takes a while.
My real advice though: It doesn sound like you much of a car person, bfakn.club or really into cars all that much. Will the BMW really bring you enough joy to justify the expense? At 27 with that income you are in your absolute prime years for stashing cash away for retirement and building up savings for a down payment on a house. Get a 2014 economy car for 10 15k that will last you another 10 years while saving like crazy.
It’s not just that it’s on one screen. The Hearthstone UI and animations are brilliant and under appreciated in terms of how they help with understandability. Consider the animation when a new card is drawn, for example. It comes out and at the apex of its arc, it slows down quite a bit. That combined with a strong preference for brief card text makes it easy to read as it’s drawn. Same when your opponent plays a card: the card flips over for and hangs above the board for a few seconds so you can read it.
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.
PP (previous poster) are right though, you almost definitely have to move up to a 4 door for the post infant seat stage (which can come anywhere from 6 months to over a year depending on your babies’ height and weight. We just like every month we don’t have to pay for a new car. We tried some of the smallest convertible rear facing seats out and like PP (previous poster) said, it’s impossible to buckle them in there when you’re bending over. I do a lot of yoga, and I can’t imagine any way it will be possible. So, within a year, we’re probably in the market for a sedan with a big trunk, unless the minivan disease really takes hold.
Someone eventually pays for it.It was, as the experts here knew, the 12V battery. Replaced on warranty, and all is well.Lingering issue is the battery died in 30 months and 8500 miles. If that an expected life, I hope there a source for non OEM batteries at some point. Near as I can tell, no one else sells a battery that fits/works in the i3.Otherwise, this is a great car.
The charger itself is a $400 $600 item.Some people cheapen this process by using a dryer outlet that already exists in the garage and a slower (lower amperage) L2 charger that plugs into it (for around $300), but that means somewhat slower charging than what the car is capable of.
We’re actually in Southern Ontario but in the snowbelt a couple of weeks ago all of the roads in our county were closed for a couple of days. We’re new here so it’s been quite a learning experience. DH (dear husband) says nearly everyone he works with owns an SUV/truck. At least they do get paid when there are snow days.
I mean following your reasoning a couple of years ago I could have said my “attainable dream car” was a piece of shit 1999 four cylinder Accord, because I only had like $1000 to spend on a car and I wanted a station wagon and it was all I could afford. Do you think it would be cool if I made a post gushing about my “attainable dream car” in the title without specifying what it was, then go on to talk about this shitheap no one cares about?
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.
Despite having installed an L2 charger. I never actually needed that charging speed. Most of my driving happens close to my house (about 35 miles per day, if I average it out), and the car is pretty much always topped up when I jump into it in the morning.So. should you get an L2 charger? I still say yes, because fast charging is nice.
It virtually impossible due to the electric drivetrain to make an EV version of an ICE model and make the car desirable for the old reasons. The lineup has to be created again and would have to appeal at each price point for new reasons. Acceleration vs top speed, energy efficiency versus track performance, charge speed versus refueling, they can be electric versions of the gas cars. The cars need to appeal to EV people and they will appreciate the longer range for a less luxurious interior. To them the technology is the new luxury, not the wood trims, leather and many buttons. The drivetrain also allows more interior space for a given wheel base that usually determines segments of the market. The rules are different.
Accessories What makes cabinetry these days so different than it was 15 years ago is the interior storage items that are now available. Plate storage, spice pull outs, towel racks, mixer lift outs, and adjustable roll out trays have made cabinetry so much more user friendly and modular. With the imported cabinets, you will be forced to accessorize your storage needs yourself, hoping that the roll out you bought at Lowes fits the cabinet you bought from China. Any storage items that do come with your cabinet are of lower quality, typically a white coated wire.
See, that’s what gotten under my skin so darned bad. My panties (I actually wear Made in the USA Fruit of the Looms) are really in a terrible bunch because we’re at this place that we’ve gotten to where everyone at the bottom is simply an underachiever and should simply be someone thankful that a few scraps fall his way now and again thanks to all of the genious, and hard work of the guys at the top who, according to all accounts, are the ones who really make it all happen.
The issue is that some of the people who do abuse it are so incredibly blatant. They get away with more because they are actively scamming the system. It’s like a nerfarious version of what I do with airline miles. I find every program and loophole I can because it’s the only way I can afford to visit my family (and it’s legitimate). Because I am actively keep an eye on the programs and know all the rules/loopholes I get way more miles than most other folks who passively use the programs. I have personally known some welfare abusers and am sadly related to at least one. You’d think just by watching who brags, you could pick out the creeps. It seems most people don’t have the patience though. It’s a shame that there are people who use their benefits at casinos,resorts, in the Bahama, etc. Because it devalues the purpose of the system.
The way we currently look at productivity is so simplistic (and maybe with our system, it has to be). It amazing that we can get over out issues and move onto the bigger questions. These social issues really should not be an issue, and the fact that so many people decided that their hill to die on while we can accomplish so much more is absolutely ridiculous.
Usually, in vehicles that have a hatchback style trunk (with an open seat back) you will find the anchor on the back of the seat and sometimes in the ceiling (for the middle seat position). If the trunk is closed, you typically find the anchor spot behind the headrest. I know you will be tired, but installing the seat properly is very important. If the person picking you up doesn’t know whet to find the anchors in their vehicle, ask them to look it up in their manual as soon as they can.
The Gallardo is available with a 5 Litre V10 setup and the only one with the option of 4 wheel drive to give ground hugging handling on the road and the track and bellows a growl from its exhaust that’s louder than any Ferrari and is also available in the most outlandish colour combinations out there. With 0 100 KPH times quicker than the R8 and the McLaren, it is not the most fuel efficient supercar in its segment but has the feel of ‘passion’ and ‘zest’ which can sometimes lack in even the 458.
For me, it was in reverse. I had a souped up BMW, manual, special color, very tastefully modded, just they way I wanted it, dream car. I was gonna hold out for another couple of years, being that the BMW was the last manual 3 Series brought to the US (an F30), and I only driven manuals, by choice, my whole life (sidebar: I had an Honda Accord, manual, 220k miles that I sold before getting the Bimmer).
Other considerations Be sure to ask your cabinet retailer about things such as replacements, out of stocks, and damages. For instance, if your son breaks a door after six months and you request a replacement door, do you have to purchase an entire cabinet? Probably. What happens if your sink base cabinet is out of stock and you need everything installed next Wednesday? How long will you need to wait for the replacement?
Since trying an electric car in 2013 (a Smart ED of all things) I have never looked back. I am on my 6th electric car now, a Tesla Model S P100D. All the gas cars feel like a different century to me. Nostalgic antiques like steam trains, fax machines, and AOL. Huffing and puffing with all the heat and noise. A Rube Goldberg machine that wastes a lot of resources. It’s not just Tesla. I felt the same way about the Smart ED and our BMW i3. Tesla has just taken it the furthest without the legacy of 100 years of history and existing encumbrances. A true disruptor.
