My 12 year old recently went on a camping trip with some of his dads friends. While on this ‘camping’ trip the following happened. The old ladys grand daughter was ‘upset’ so the woman gave her car keys to my son and told him to take her grand daughter for a drive. I find it really dangerous, and normally I tend to break and start driving really slow whenever I have one of those “stickers” behind me. does anyone know how much it would cost to paint a Peugeot 205 GTI?What car did you learn to drive in?by Renee S 6 years ago
I really didn think it felt like a RWD since I didn feel any sign of losing the rear end under power, only under braking (and thought I read something about “taking advantage of the FWD”, but that must have been the last car I drove, lol). I think I need to downshift later as well, too aggressive downshifting wont help with the rear in a RWD.Ok, straight line braking it is! Turbo lag is a problem I think, I don have a clutch pedal (yet).
Being English, we don’t have Thanks Giving, but I wish we did. We make up for it on Christmas though. I go to my moms for Christmas dinner every year and every year it’s the same annual goodness. We always have turkey, pork and some special sausage (can’t remember what it’s called) with apple sauce and cranberry sauce on the side. Roasted honey glazed parsnips, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, peas and sprouts. Boiled and roasted potatoes and home made gravy. A glass of sparkling wine to go with it too. It’s so good!What is a product you can’t live without?We all have favorite products that we swear by whether it be that wrinkle cream that actually delivers results or a favorite cleaner (mine is Windex) that powers through the messes in your life. What is one product that you personally can’t live.
I want you to take note that my issue is with the idea that PHEVs aren part of the solution. Not everyone can afford or practically use a BEV right now. As above with my truck example, I make that sort of trip 5 12 times per year, so I need an ICE or PHEV. I much rather an PHEV in that case.
A friend of mine had two Grand Nationals, and they were incredible cars. Both were stolen and subsequently wrecked. I’ve had an ’84 Camaro that I built up from nothing and an ’04 GTO (my first car was a 1980 Jeep Wagoneer), but I think my true interest remains in the pre ECU General Motors muscle cars.
I want to have an idea of what to have my husband look for, for my 2005 BMW 3 series sedan. Also, I’m thinking of POSSIBLY getting 2 car seats, to easily accomodate hubby and I. He has a Lexus E class 300, which is a lot roomier than mine and shouldn’t be too hard to get a seat for.
A “money race” is a race you run in Real Racing 3 once a day, to make as much money as possible off that one single race, that earn a lot of money, but is not too demanding or too difficult to win. This exploits the “daily double”, the 100% bonus you earn as the first race of the day if you race 5 days in a row, and the ability to hire the manager (either free, or 1 gold) to double your winnings. Both bonuses can be used together to quadruple your R$ winnings that one race.
3) Pete Buttigieg. Now I going to preemptively defend his 3 slot by saying, I don think he in any way qualified to be President. That being said, he the top contender for VP. He carries himself extremely well with very desirable VP traits. He friendly, humble, charming, charismatic with solid understanding of a surprising range of issues. His few solutions were mediocre, but he seemed pretty washy on taking hard stances anyway. It obvious he doesn have the experience of many people on the stage, but he a solid campaigner from a very critical state; which is the dream scenario for a VP pick.
[WP]When you reach 18, you get put in a database which ranks you in different categories (ex. 207,145th in the world for most bug kills) You lived on a ranch and never used tech. You had to go into town after bfakn.club your 18th birthday. Everyone is staring at you. You finally decide to check the database.
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.
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.
Alinghi had chosen to build a 101ft super lightweight catamaran, while BMW Oracle Racing opted for a 114ft trimaran with a giant solid wing mast in place of a more conventional sail. Both boats were impressive in their own rights and could sail at three times the wind speed, but BMW Oracle’s USA 17 particularly so, its wing taller than the total wingspan of a Boeing 747 at 223ft, the largest rigid wing ever built. Indeed, the technology on display propelled the event into completely new territory.
The Verdict: In addition to the fantastic engine, the Celica has all the practicality of a hatchback. It is also front wheel drive. Although this is less fun than an RWD sports car, your parents (if you’re still in high school) and insurance agent will probably appreciate it! Another thing to keep in mind is the legendary reliability of Toyota cars. You can count on this lasting well past 100k miles without anything more than oil, brake pads, and tires. If something does go wrong, the parts for this car are cheap.
Hot take: universal income is a radical strategy that may actually provide some ideas on things we can do. In that ideal society where people can become engineers, artists, teachers, or whatever they want, people still need means to live their life. People that are satisfied chilling out, casually meeting with friends and doing simple work should have the means to live. There should be an award for working hard and really testing yourself, but it should all be on a spectrum.
BMW’s designers draw inspiration from areas such as architecture and contemporary interior design. It is a prodigious effort of creation, relaying back to Munich every advance observed in new technology. Sometimes ideas arrive as “old tech”, sketches in a notebook from someone’s travels. All this input is refined by the design team.
They use the 8 series for marketing reasons it the car they want to sell with that program. This has been brought up many times before. What the point in spending millions on a racing program without a plan to get a return on that investment?Trying to get a favorable BoP? Thats what every team needs to do in a BoP class.
What cheap shit do you predict exactly? EV buyers won overlook what makes a hypothetical future EV compelling, that where their value lies in the tech that makes them perform, go a long distance, charge fast and the software tech to interact with the car. It won be the engine note, it won be the leather (they might demand no leather in fact), it won be the 1000 buttons, it won be the manual transmission, it won be old style dashboard materials like wood and stuff like analog clocks.
This part is a no brainer. You find a car, you buy a car, then you drive it away. That should be easy, right? Well, not exactly. But before we get into the red tape jungle that stands between you and the road, you’ll need to know where to look for your dream machine. Apart from the obvious dealership auctions, it is worthwhile checking out the online portals. The largest online car portals are listed at the bottom of this article. But for the best bargain, the brave go to eBay’s German car auctions. Believe it or not, eBay in Germany is the second largest in the world and it has an impressive car section for those willing to take a chance on the auctions. My BMW was bought on auction there and I got it at a bargain price. Mind you, all of my German friends shake their heads in disbelief when I tell them where I bought my car. So the question you need to ask yourself is:
What we should have is elevated mass transit only systems and compact cities with the entire groundscape both green and scaled to human life. But being that the most powerful companies on the planet are all dependent on the wasteful paradigm of sprawl, ineffecient cities/buildings, and automobiles, this is what we get. That is the problem with monopolies. Industries that do not have to compete become stagnant. And actually in a lot of ways I think you can see the same thing happening with computers and electronics.
Non Mini dealerships won’t do a good job servicing your vehicle. I took my car in to a local repair shop to deal with a couple small issues, as well as get an oil change. They couldn’t fix the issues I had with my car, and missed a very critical issue that my dealership found months later. So don’t rely on a non Mini dealership/repair shop to take good car of your vehicle.
I drive a 325. we have 2 Britax Marathons installed so neither is in the center, DS (dear son) 1 who is 3 sits behind the driver (DH is 6 3 so that seat needs to be able to go all the way back) DS (dear son) 2 who is 11 mo sits behind the passenger RF. But we leave that seat pushed almost all the way up. I drive the car most of the time, and not many passengers, if we do all go out in it DH (dear husband) drives, but I am short 5 4 so can handle the passenger seat being pushed up. Before we had DS2 in the graco snugride on the passenger side. But now with the july baby coming it looks like I am trurning in my car. very sad.
Starting off this list is the first of two BMWs the best version of the Z4. Gone is the convertible and coupe option all Z4s from this generation have retractable hardtops. Despite the upped power from the 3.0L I6, the Z4 isn’t a purist driver’s car by any stretch of the imagination. The car has softer handling than some of its competitors, which makes it more of a weekend cruiser than a hardcore sports car. According to Car and Driver, the Z4 smoothly delivers its power and has a comfortable ride, but its steering and suspension don’t inspire confidence in the driver at the limit which means it fails to achieve the mission of a true sports car. However, if you are looking for a quick roadster for Sunday afternoon cruises, it’ll deliver great acceleration, a comfortable ride, and a sporty exhaust note.
BUT. We never see a gas station on the regular (before you get stuck on nitpicking, I mean not a gas station because the thing doesn take gas, but also primarily mean equivalent SuperCharger, as in something you HAVE to stop at in order to refill energy). Until our first roadtrip, and we own two, count them, 2 M3 LRs for a combined 12+ months (one for 8 mo, the other for an overlapped 4 mo), we had never been to a Supercharger.
On top of that, all the circlejerking about Blizzard in this thread is also really aggravating. “After Diablo Immortal, this is the last straw. Fuck you, Blizzard, I out.” Blizzard has all but said publicly they working on Diablo 4, but that not good enough I guess. They also have to not work on anything else you personally think you might not like. If they are working on Diablo 4, but aren far enough along to have anything to show, but they also paying a third party developer to make a mobile game, and that mobile game is much farther along, why shouldn they show it? And every idiot Diablo fan in this thread talking shit will fucking download it and play the shit out of it, too.
On the used market electric cars are a steal for the same reason to. A new gen leaf will be a top contender for me if the prices fall dramatically when lease turn ins flood the market. You get cheap commuting/errand driving within your electric range. You get the same go anywhere fuel anywhere road trip capability. Cost splits the difference between EV and ICE, but you still get a fairly large tax credit. Also, you can make 5 PHEVs with the batteries it would take to make 1 BEV, which is noteworthy in the face of no reprieve in sight to the limited supply of raw materials, as well as limited supply of manufacturing capacity (this is mostly a human issue not enough trained professionals. not readily solved by just “build more factories.”).
We are traveling in May with LO (little one) who will be 18 months. I am planning on taking our Sureride for the flight (he has his own seat), and installing it FF on the plane. Not thrilled with FF for the flight, but I’m ok with it, and knew that would have to happen on a flight with this particular seat.
I don know how much on average you are spending on your Tahoe a month in repairs/maintenance, but from what I can tell, everything costs more on a BMW. I take a look at some average maintenance costs owners pay on BMWs per year, compare them to your maintenance cost on your Chevy, then add that to your monthly cost. My guess is that add around $200/month on average. If you are okay spending an additional portion of your disposable income on a car instead of other things like vacations, dining out, etc, then go for it.
