On these lines, I was driving my son’s roadworthy, licenced and MOT’d but very scruffy car near my home and got pulled over by a rude aggressive arrogant wanker who strutted round and round the car trying to find fault, examined all my documents to try and find fault and eventually gave up and ‘let me off with a warning’ for nothing!
But it is the post 1969 bikes, built after BMW moved motorcycle production from Munich to Spandau in West Berlin, that are attracting both touring riders and collectors. “Before the move to Spandau, BMW motorcycles were expensive to produce and not sold all over the world. Each bike was assembled by an individual engineer, asystem that was not financially viable andalmost bankrupted the company,” explains Peter Ardron, chairman of the UK based BMW Airhead Fellowship. “But production changed completely after that, because the plant shifted to more efficient build methods while retaining the existing standards of quality. That’s when BMW Motorrad really took off.”Ardron cites the R90S as one of the most sought after classic models, around 17,500 examples of which were built from 1973 to 1976. Featuring an 898cc engine producing 67bhp, a small “bikini” fairing and a neat “ducktail” seat, the bike had a top speed of 125mph, effortless cruising ability and distinctive looks, thanks to its “smoke effect” paintwork insilver grey or Daytona orange.
Hardware Make sure the glides are of a good quality and are soft close (a standard these days). Ask your retailer how they handle requests for broken glides and hardware a year or years down the road. As for hinges, are they self closing? Are they of good quality? The hinge on your door actuates a lot in the course of its life, and you do not want to be constantly adjusting the hinges or replacing them.
We thought about a crossover too but when you need as much room as I do, the size of crossovers becomes deceptive and you don get the cabin passenger space of a large sedan in a CUV until you start looking at the really big ones and my wife didn want something that big. The big sedans are also a bargain right now because no one wants them there more than a few pretty nice models to choose from and you can get killer deals on 1 3 year old models with hardly any miles on them.
I’m a car seat tech btw. In my opinion, the hardest sedans to fit 2 car seats in are Subarus. Any mid size sedan (other than a Subaru) should be fine though. Volkswagens tend to have very roomy back seats, and the Passat has very high safety ratings. The BMW 5 Series has a good back seat.
Backstory on how this huge post was conceived. I was initially researching the history of Mazda participation in Le Mans as part of a secret project for YouTube that didn pan out. One of the main points that I was about to look into is why the Rotary engine was “banned” (Spoilers: it wasn “banned”).
The Kurdish Peshmerga fighter decided to invest in an armored car, but he had little clue the vehicle would end up saving the lives of dozens of people.After shopping around, he settled on a bulletproof BMW, and paid $10,000 for the early 1990s model at a car auction.”My friends were very happy when I bought the armored car,” he tells CNN. “We started driving in it to the front line near Kirkuk, not worried about ISIS drive by shootings or roadside bombs.”Abdulrahman, 32, lives with his wife and four children in Taza Khurmatou, some 23 kilometers south of Kirkuk.On October 21, dozens of ISIS militants carried out a coordinated series of attacks on the oil rich city, targeting security forces and civilians in several neighborhoods; 64 died and 86 ISIS militants were killed.More than 100 civilians and security personnel were wounded; many of them were left stranded because of ISIS militants’ indiscriminate firing, while others were trapped by the terror group’s snipers shooting from rooftops.ISIS sniper fireAbdulrahman knew he had to act.”I told myself, this is the right time to help people, this is the right moment to do it. I am a fighter and I have a bulletproof car, shame on me if I can’t help,” he says.
Really? You never used the facilities at a gas station? Let be real, we all know what we talking about here. Gas you can pump quick and get 300 500+ miles of range (I would routinely get 550 miles highway on a tank in my manual Accord), EVs are not there right now.
Starting from 2019 there are special regulations for lane changes in the EU. A BMW lane Chance assistant was deployed in the 5 series and X3 which is on par with the Tesla system, performance wise. With the X5 this system isn available in the EU anymore (only US and China).
It’s hard to deal with comments, but try to have some compassion that you have not been shown by them. It’s really hard to be struggling when you do work a decent paid job. When the economy gets bad, many people turn on what they see as physical manifestations of what is being taken out of their pockets.
I need REAL advice/suggestions on a carseat for our first LO. I though that after months of research we’d found our perfect infant seat. The Britax Chaperone. but two things now force us to regroup: 1 its the only seat that Britax now makes in China ( though we will still go with the Boulevard for our next seat, since its super safe 100% made in the US, but too big for an infant )
Gas Trips The money spent at gas stations. This includes gas expenses, air freshners, filling air. Now, these expenses are hard to track and I used mint to pull the information. The money spent at gas station might have been spent on chips and gum as well, and there is no way for me to know now. And so while the gas trip number may not be exact, but it is pretty close. I always use Premium 93 grade.
Can I just roll on the throttle earlier?It going to be interesting to see how much I can improve in a short amount of time just being aware I driving a RWD and not a FWD!Going in for another training session! Thank you!Turned out, TC did a world of difference! I really thought I had remembered to turn that off before.Anyway, I saw an immediate improvement (after the 3 4 slower laps getting used to the handling).
Type of thing happens all the time, I found it happens a lot less at 10k behavior. However, regular toxic players still exist at 10k, or rather people who are just generally negative, but it seems like they intentionally throw less and abandon less. I even a little bit toxic when I start to lose but I don talk shit, I do happily point out obvious mistakes like maybe hit more than 1 with Echo Slam pepega sometimes get snow flaky, if you queue off lane and rage when your pos4 leaves the lane to gank mid and you feed, you a fuck, and if you pos5 and get bitchy when asked for wards you a fuck too.
Competition success quickly followed, with now legendary drivers such as Derek Bell, James Hunt, JackyIckx and Niki Lauda all racing Alpina tuned BMWs to victory in events between 1968 and 1973. But in 1983 it becamean official manufacturer that owners couldcommission to modify their cars to Alpina specification an expensive business, since it involveddiscarding standard engines, gearboxes, suspension units and wheels in order to replace them with theenhanced components.
Took the CarPlay option for 3 years but it is not good value for money, meaning for my next car I will not buy it and stick with the default connected drive ui.There are some finicky UI issues: when using the buttons in the car to go to CarPlay menus or screens it will just go to the active CarPlay screen depending on your location.
Starting in 1981 there’s the DeLorean DMC 12, which was pretty much a classic the moment it came off the line. Then in the mid 1980’s there’s the Buick Grand National (and even better the Grand National GNX). A black muscle car from Buick that is sure to be desirable well into the future.
Here is the interesting part I have paid $21000 for a car and another $18000 for repairs, insurance, maintenance, registration etc. I am quite blown away by this number. Is this normal for a car? Or can I chalk this up to the joys of owning a German car?
Some Final ThoughtsThe above cars represent only a small portion of the kit cars and replicas that are available to buy these days. These are however amongst the best and not just because of the car they are, but the amount of time, energy, thought and money that’s spent on developing them. They are truly amazing cars and in comparison to other cars in the same price band, so much better value!
First, press the “learn” button on the back of your garage door opener mounted on the ceiling. (The learn button, located on the back of your machine, will be square if using a Liftmaster machine. Craftsman, Liftmaster, Chamberlain are all the same. Their learn buttons are square and usually yellow, red/orange, or purple. If using a Genie, the button says “learn button.”) The single press of this button should be brief and firm. Do not hold this button down. If you do, it erases all of the programming in the machine and you’ll have to re program all the remote controls that you have, and that’s not a fun process.
He watched the cameras as the Graze entered the hangar and settled into one of the racks intended for Garm Rodis. It didn’t look like any Graze he’d seen before. It must be some new prototype they were working on. He shut the blast doors again and called for the hangar crew to bring a medical team to the docking bay. Then he took another sip of his coffee and turned the sports broadcast back on.
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.
I bought the Peugeot because it was within my price range and is a soft top. Since I cannot afford to buy a bike and all the paraphernalia that goes with it at this time, I figured that a convertible would at least give me some of the fun factor back.
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
He’s also looking at getting a RWD BMW diesel to use as long as there is no snow on the ground. Unfortunately we can’t keep the Jetta as it’s dirty diesel and a few weeks ago gave him an asthma attack that sent him to the hospital in an ambulance and he missed two days of work.
Zao is not a good choice for ranked this season because you most impactful when maximizing your concealment and either lurking 4 5 km behind your DDs or flanking and catching cruisers off guard with AP volleys and farming BBs that have their guns pointed elsewhere. The problem is you get hard countered by a CV because they can permaspot you once your location is known, and your AA is pretty bad (not that any solo cruiser can defend against repeated CV strikes). Henri is better because concealment is not a big deal, you can use IFHE to burn down BBs incredibly fast, reload booster is OP, and it much faster and tankier.
That the name of the game. They did their best to make it competitive, and have been on several occassions, even in its first season. Besides, when they first unveiled the car they sought to make some aero changes to make the car more low slung, and a (yet unnamed to my knowledge) competing manufacturer at the negotiating table vetoed their ability to make such a major change to the car at such a late stage, setting them (their words) 6 months behind in the development curve.
It’s not too badly priced, either. The basic kit starts at 16,000, but you will, of course, need to spend a lot more to get those kind of figures. Some people say you should invest about 60,000 in a new Ultima, and like the Factory Five Racing GTM, carbon brakes would be a nice addition.
5. Lexus LFAOkay, so it might not be the cheapest compact supercar around, but it definitely has been the most striking in recent times, especially when one realizes that this is a car which took almost 9 years to produce since it was conceptualized and that the company which made it was known for its stylish and clinical looking family cars.
The circuit that will be used for July’s grand prix was opened in 1984 and measures a more manageable 5.1km. Some have deemed it “dull”, but these are mostly people who haven’t had the experience of racing on it. Virtually any racetrack seems on the mild side compared with the Nordschleife, which forms the major part of the original Nrburgring as it was inaugurated in 1927.
Absolutely, we are in a totally difference place now or we wouldn even be considering the BMW DH had a large increase in income and we over half way to debt free. We could buy a BMW cash with the sale of the cars and money we have saved, but would rather not plunge for a more expensive vehicle until we bought a home.
If you aren an asshole all the time, and are generally positive and a friendly player who doesn tilt and tries his best, reports do not matter for you. I have between a 9 10K behavior score at all times and when I have a bad game and make too many mistakes and my team decides that it my fault and I need to be reported, I couldn care any less.
