BMW is one of the most successful marques in racing, from providing, probably, the most successful engine ever for Formula One (the straight four M10), through to decades of dominance on the road in touring and rally cars. “It is a company close to my heart,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, senior vice president of BMW Group Design. “Driving is close to my heart, too; expressing movement in metal it’s what I love.”
For example I was interested in a 2010 2013 Toyota Avalon. But when I looked up the TSB I found they have poorly designed routing for the hose that carries engine coolant. The hose rubs against the engine, gets hot, wears down, and eventually breaks open. Once it breaks open the car loses all its coolant and the engine overheats within 3 minutes. Destroyed engine in 3 minutes. on a Toyota. not something you EVER expect to happen to a Toyota. But this specific model and year has this problem.
I would tend to disagree while they don set lap times that are that much quicker than a GT3, they much harder to drive faster/better than a GT3. The GT3s are much more forgiving. I was in an IMSA race a week or two ago driving a GT3 and had to contend with GTE drivers who were slower than me in the corners, but (a little) faster on the straights, meaning they try and pass me in the corners, wouldn succeed, get bad exits from the corners then try again on the straight, get alongside me, try and pass, etc etc.
This particular kit comes with everything you need except engine, transmission, and paint. It’s designed around a small block Chevy engine, although a large number of engines can be squeezed in there. How about the 5.4l V8 from a Porsche 928 GTS? Coming with 345bhp, this thing will fly, and that’s before you start tweaking the engine. 500bhp is attainable!
My take on it? “Productive” to me simply means that everyone can do whatever they want to do, and that with that freedom ideally overall society will be more productive. Maybe there are less engineers than we want, but the ones that choose to be engineers are inspired and creative. Maybe there are more artists than we need and we can really understand their contribution, but hopefully they can contribute in their own way.
It takes about 16 hours to fully charge from empty, whereas a 240V, 30A takes only 2 3 hours.Always Be Charging. If you can plug in somewhere, do it. It removes all range anxiety. Any time you park at home, plug it in. Make it a habit. It takes all of 15 seconds when you park your car, and you never have to visit a gas station.
In the rare occurrence that a challenger is found to be invalid (in this instance, the Spanish Club Nautico Espaol de Vela for not meeting the designated defender requirements), the Deed of Gift that outlines the rules of the competition for the Cup dictates that the next valid challenger (in this case the GGYC) is the one to be accepted. No further yacht clubs can issue challenges and a challenger series does not take place. The Deed of Gift makes provision for such disputes by bfakn.club appointing the New York Supreme Courts as arbiters.
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.
More broadly, Heroes fans should consider themselves lucky. This game was a flop in the market from day 1. Despite this, Blizzard dumped money into it for 4 years. I sure the copious usage data they collected over those 4 years has them convinced there is no longer a realistic path to success for this game. They see clearly now that it will never be anything but an also ran in the MOBA market, and they not a company that makes also ran games. So they finally made the hard choice to pull the plug. If Heroes is your favorite game, or if you were trying to make a living from the Heroes community, that sucks. It truly does. And the way Blizzard handled this announcement seems to leave something to be desired. But all the entitlement in this sub from people who expect them to run a charity apparently indefinitely is pretty rich.
If you live in a single family house and have a driveway or garage that you can park next to a wall, get a 240V “EVSE” (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment, colloquially but incorrectly called a “level 2 charger.”) Unless you have a 240V, 30A electric dryer style outlet available right next to where you want to park, you need an electrician to install one.
It doesn really cost anything more in maintenance than any other car if you look after it. Track rods, filters etc will cost you about the average but you probably pay a bit more for tyres because they put out an insane amount of torque (the m54 engine in an e46 3 series puts out 168hp at someyhing along the lines of 155ft lb of torque on a what would be an even lighter chassis than mine in your 3 series), and it rear wheel drive so your car is being pushed rather than pulled.

Should You Buy a TT?If you are looking for a fun, powerful, stylish sports coupe that is also good in the snow, the all wheel drive TT is your best bet in this price range. Its sister cars the Infiniti G35 or the Nissan Z, both have rear wheel drive.
I think AC only is fine, but for me, the i3 isn a primary car it our commuter/secondary car. if lots of miles need to be driven, we drive something else/use different transportation. stopping every hour for 30 minutes would be a shitty experience (and you would have to know the stations exist).
From race officials controlled by the defenders to the ability of the defenders to accept or reject any challenger, the stipulations the Cup holders had written for themselves were seen by many as the most biased and unsportsmanlike in the history of the event. Under these rules, the management of the 33rd America’s Cup would be anything but independent. Certainly, it would not be fair. While it was accepted that the America’s Cup pitch was usually skewed to some degree, the AC33 protocol was seen by many as a step too far. The trouble was that few knew how to address the issue to level the pitch.
They can be done up so nice like you mentioned with the widebody kits. They can be tuned really nice as well. I definitely like mine stock and have no intention of doing any of that. Would like a louder supercar like exhaust I guess but its awesome as it is.
The media would have you believe Tesla is in trouble. The reality is the situation is dire for other car manufactures. They are years behind, they are struggling to get batteries and the batteries they get are sub par. They don have the numbers to train a neuronet the way Tesla can. Tesla has created a drop in sales for most auto makers many 10% loss and growing. Service centers and charging are growing by the day and the competitions charging options will leave customers stranded.
This is true of all cars, even Hondas of that era (specifically the Accord Traction Control pump). Things like that are NCT fails too.Do you know a good independent mechanic? If not, find one.For 2k, an E90 will have interstellar mileage at this point too.Ask about the Swirl flaps and if they have been replaced.
We just bought a new BMW X3. I have a Britax Marathon that my 2 year old rides in RFing. I use the RFing tether. I am having a hard time finding a good place to put the strap. Right now I have it on the track of the seat (where it typically goes) but the problem is that the point where I can get the strap around starts far up. Meaning that the passanger can not push the seat very far back at all. In fact, I am only 5’4, and I barely have any leg room sitting in it. If the seat is more upright, it can go further back, so you have more leg room.
I have the following seats available: Britax Advocate andMarathon G series (MFR dates of 2013, 1 of each), Diono Rainier, and Evenflo Sureride. Are any of these good for ERF in the X3 for YDS? If not, what is recommended? I’m open to buying a new seat for the vehicle if needed, but would prefer to avoid it if possible. The “extra” Britax seats are in MILs and my moms’ cars and I like having them there and available for the periodic use they get. I looked at the Britax ClickTights and DH (dear husband) loved them in the store, but it seems like the front to back size is roughly the same as the G series that I have, so I didn’t think it was worth the investment. Thoughts? Anything I’m missing?
That includes the price of tires and other consumables, which I have said several times I did not include because those are common. But if you want to do a mile per mile comparison of cost of a model 3 TCO go for it. If you take into account EVERYTHING I have done to the car, I am around $2500. That with Tires, coolant replacement, cabin air filters, brake fluid change, and I sure some other things I forgotten. No major “omg this maintenance is so expensive!” items. Hell the tires on our 3 will likely cost 2x what we paid to re tire our Prius, and will probably need to be done twice as often.
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!
I would think the gas cost savings of a non awd vehicle in the summer is lost by maintaining, registering, taxing, inspecting, and insuring a third car. Have you added all that up? Can he drive the van in the summer, and let you use the awd since you aren’t commuting?
You’re 100% correct. I’m just addressing the culture as a whole and how it’s limiting Tesla as a company. All brands have bad apples but in most cases it doesn’t have the kind of impact that it does with Tesla. At least in my opinion. Porsche owners are right behind Tesla owners. In fact, one thing I’ve come to learn since buying the GT3 is that most Porsche owners are Porsche enthusiasts, not car enthusiasts. That’s especially true for the GT cars.
That planted the seed of my interest and I was fascinated by them, and just learned as much as I could. Before buying my current car I studied up so I wouldn’t get stuck with an expensive BMW lemon that breaks down! So yeah just researching online, talking to our mechanic oh and I collect old magazines from the 80s and 90s so they have heaps of info in them, just reading up I guess and through experience learned with my own car. Thanks for the question Ashley and best wishes for 2011
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.
We 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 new here so it been quite a learning experience. DH says nearly everyone he works with owns an SUV/truck. At least they do get paid when there are snow days.
When you’re a conservative such as I am, it’s really tough to stand up and be for the little guy. Really tough. Because the fact of the matter is, as soon as you start to say, “Hey, the guy on the bottom needs a little recognition for his contribution too,” all of sudden the accusations begin to fly.
They on a race against the clock and it seems they didn play their cards quite right. Diesel took way too long to arrive in America and it basically just a party trick by now (they should have cut their losses), and SkyActiv X still requires some hybridization to get significant efficiency improvements which increases cost.
Assembly While the cam locks are somewhat avoidable in the import cabinets, there are a few that offer a true dado assembly and require glues and fasteners that are nailed or screwed on. Some even use pocket screws to hold the cabinet together. While this seems like a minor point, it’s actually huge. Over time, as wood expands and contracts and cabinet contents shift, inferior construction will almost always lead to separation of cabinet panels, cabinets peeling from the wall and other shocking developments. There is one American Made RTA cabinet (made by Conestoga Wood Specialties) that even offers a really unique sliding dovetail technology where the wood panels (top/bottom and sides) dovetail together so that the cabinet literally cannot fall apart once assembled.
Then enters the ATS, It had 1 owner who put less than 10k miles on it per year and was everything seemed basically brand new. It was in a much better condition, had way more tech, AND it was a few thousand dollars cheaper than the BMW, it was a no brainer. These are the types of cars that I love to buy because they are such a steal on the pre owned market. Now, buying these brand new is a different story but I never do such a thing with most vehicles.
Thank you for your reply Nightstorm_NoS, my budget was 1/2 off that, and I know people are going to say that if you have a low budget you should steer clear from a BMW, electric or not. Every one in my neighborhood it seems has now taken delivery of their model 3 has they are all over the place. It a cool car but it is by no mean a city car, which is what I need. We have a ICE Suv for long range, for now. I have taken delivery of the i3 REX and I can say for sure, I would have been frustrated but the Bev version. Consider it cheating but the Rex extender has proven so far to be worth the extra $$. I coded the car and I have driven with 174 miles of range, light foot and taking advantage of steep downhills with battery Soc hold. I can charge or I can pump, having flexibility is sure sweet.
