With BMWs unless you want to play the repair game (DIY as much as possible, save up for catastrophic repairs), it best to budget accordingly, and look for a lease or used car with a third party warranty. Definitely at least until you done with car payments. You don want to to be paying for your car at the same time you get a $3K+ repair billThat isn necessarily a bad thing. A Civic is a small, reliable vehicle. One of my biggest complaints with small cars up until the late 2000 was that everyone assumed that you wanted a bare bones vehicle. If you look at my post history, for example, we have a Mazda3s Grand Touring, and an Acura TSX. We want small cars that are easy to park, relatively inexpensive to maintain, etc. but that have nice features like upgraded stereo systems with Bluetooth, leather, blind spot monitoring, a quieter ride, keyless entry and start, etc. It relatively light, so it easier on the brakes and tires which last longer than if I bought something bigger, we almost always are in the car alone, or with one another. Very rarely, we will have a 3rd and/or a 4th passenger, which our cars do just fine for the once in a blue moon that someone does actually use the back seat.
But as I said I never driven it so I not sure. Both are fairly even matched in terms of pace though.I just hijacking this post here to make a quick point for anyone else who is considering jumping into GTE first;Have you ever done multiclass racing before?If the answer to this is no, then you should not be in a faster class until you are competent at driving in the slowest class, IMO.There a lot of people in iLMS who jump into the GTE class after racing in IMSA without having experienced a faster class before, which leads to.
But I was in their face and calling them “pigs”, because they were. A broken nose and red knuckles proved I fought back. So my arrests,,,, were a badge of honor, and I taunted them to keep me longer and get me a lawyer!! I sure as hell never claimed innocence as a defense, I claimed power to the people.
I didn do that but I was probably one of the lucky ones to have a paid off car and financial security without having considered it back then. Should you? Depends on your goals, but I say no. Buy a more modest used car and wait a few years before splurging on a BMW.Take advantage of the low cost of living, live frugal the first few years, and build a nice nest egg, money for a house, or other goals down the road.
And part of drunk driving law is that, if you are found driving drunk, you are obligated to give a blood sample to confirm this. There is no requirement for a warrant in that law. Requiring some bullshit extra formality in this case makes no sense whatsoever, and it has no point beyond pleasing some overly concerned citizens.
People like you make finding a job where you can feel relaxed about what you say, near impossible. It took me 15 years to end up at a place where people like you don exist. And it has been heaven. Now go away where I don have to deal with how excruciatingly fucking dumb you are.
It typically not well recieved in this sub, but I fully support your notion of spending extra on a car. I earn a similar wage in the midwest, and driving my dream car for three years was absolutely worth it. I drive a lot, so I wanted something I enjoy a lot!
The above of course has the normal disclaimer. Most certainly a professional must be consulted for diagnosis and repair. After the guy put everything back together, the guy tells me he lost one bolt. First he says don’t drive the car, then he says as long as it doesn’t over heat I’m good. How dangerous is this?What causes a car to over heat?by Moipone 7 years ago
I believe the glue that holds the whole thing together is DNVGL. They are the trusted, assurance provider that take away the anxiety from things like working with a Chinese company, an unknown startup, or onboarding new tech. In Vechain’s case, all 3 points are valid, so it would take A LOT more than just great tech and partnerships to onboard western companies like BMW. It would take someone that’s respected world wide, has a tremendous reputation of providing certifications, and trusted to deliver on their promise, and that party is DNVGL.
1. Convertible (Cabriolet)Convertibles, also known as cabriolets, can be converted from an enclosed car to an open air vehicle. Earlier versions of convertibles were fitted with manually detachable roofs, but modern convertibles are fitted with fully automatic hydraulic or electrical actuators. These modern roofs automatically fold away into the trunk of the car. Soft roofs are usually made of soft textile, vinyl or canvas, whereas hard roofs are made of steel, plastic, carbon fibre or some other tough plastic.
When we bought this car, I was in the midst of the throws of infertility and even with the tiniest glimmer of hope that I’d ever get pregnant, I didn’t think there would be any issue with fitting a rear facing car seat in the back. After all, the back two bucket seats both have the latches for car seat systems. ) is the smallest one I’d find. With my passenger seat in its very most foward and upright position, I literally had to use my body weight to click it to where it would stay put without springing into the dash again. Is it possible that this sales associate was correct in telling me that this is the smallest car seat available in the United States? I want to believe that she’s wrong.
In 2000, Mitsubishi rolled out the third generation Eclipse. This generation featured more angular styling than the previous generation and did not include any trim levels with a turbocharger or AWD. The suspension was altered to provide a more comfortable ride, and they changed up the engine options. RS/GS Eclipses came with a 2.4 L motor that made 150 hp. The GT came with a 200 hp 3 L V6 while the GTS model carried an improved version of the same V6 that pushed out 210hp. Mitsubishi also made convertible versions of the GS, GT, and GTS trims. You can pick up a third generation Eclipse for anywhere from $4,500 $10,00. Again, pricing will depend on mileage, condition, and the used car market in your area.
But GM did say last month it expects to spend $1 billion more for commodities like steel and aluminum next year. The price of those goods rose since the Trump administration imposed tariffs on those products in an effort to help US mills. Even US steel and aluminum producers have raised prices because they no longer face as much competition from overseas product.
Want to read your engine fault codes on your own? Most modern cars have Engine Control Unit (ECU) computers that monitor engine functioning, and you can connect to the computer through a standardized port called an OBD II (OBD2) port. First, determine if your car has an ODB II port, get a OBD II reader, connect to your car and you can read any fault codes to find out what the ECU is reporting. You can easily Google those codes with your car make/model/year and find out more information about what other’s may have reported as the likely fix for the problem.
Should you have further questions or need additional information, you may reply directly to this e mail. Not to the optimal levels like you would doing a precondition but there is some residual warming. So my point was, if you are plugged in, and start conditioning for say 30 min, when you unplug the battery will be in a better state and range than if you simply took off cold. That has been my experience anyway, simple climatizing while plugged in helps your range vs cold startsWe had pretty bad wintery weather here for a week or two, so I parked my i3 and left it plugged in for that time I drove my other vehicle which is more suited to deep snow. I had also turned off all my scheduled departure times so as to not waste power warming the car up when I wasn’t going to drive it.
My advice would be to wait an try to score a great deal. I looked on the internet almost everyday for 3 4 months before this car popped up. It happens a decent amount at luxury dealerships, from what I understand, where a person will come in and buy the lower end 3 series and then want to upgrade a month later.
I don think they expect to sell a lot more BMWs to teens and 20 somethings, this is about creating an attachment to a brand for the future. In 5, 10, 15 years some of today esports audience will have the income to afford a BMW. The auto industry tends to have more brand loyalty and switching is less common, so someone that has the means to get their first “dream” car and picks a BMW is highly likely to buy a BMW again in the future.Another way of looking at it advertising towards a 25 year old potentially creates a customer for the next 50+ years. Advertising towards a 55 year old (that might already have strong brand loyalty elsewhere) only gets you a customer for the next 20+ years.In any case we don know the value of the sponsorship deal or what financial projections this was based on, so it impossible to conclude whether it a good investment.
It could be a BMW thing. I have heard BMWs are some of the hardest to get a good install in. Was he installing it in a side seat and not the center? No car seat is safe to be installed in the center of a BMW (sedans I know for sure). The European sport style seats are not compatible with a center installation. For us, the seat just moved more than he would like, so we are getting help. When meeting with a CPS technician, they ask that you have installed it to the best of your ability ahead of time and they will check your install and help you learn about a proper install and your seat. Our appointment is an hour long and it covers our seat installs and complete car seat safety.
Have you ever done multiclass racing before?If you haven I heavily recommend racing in GT3 before going GTE. It sounds like you own the Ferrari GT3, so you done so GT3 racing but only in the Ferrari challenge series. IMSA, in either GTE or GT3, is a completely different beast.If you do a season in the GT3s first, you will gain skills needed to drive the GTE cars later.
This problem started for me on Monday, but was resolved yesterday. When I started my car after work and tried again to add a new CarPlay device, the option was unavailable. I rebooted ConnectedDrive by holding down the volume button for 40 seconds, and after rebooting, CarPlay was available when connecting a new device. FWIW I had been doing this every day since the system failed on my way to and from work, and CarPlay didn actually become available for me until yesterday afternoon.
Tools for the JobMost of these tools are pretty common in a toolbox. The only ones that I would recommend buying are 1) the 02 sensor socket, part 95045 at Harbor Freight for $7.99 (use the 20% coupon and free flashlight coupon in the paper to get your money’s worth) and 2) a wire stripper; sorry, no tips as where to get that cheap. If you don’t want to use the 02 sensor socket, you can take off the heat shield, held on by five 6 mm Allen head bolts (and one 4 mm I believe), which will give you 카지노사이트 enough room to work an adjustable wrench down there.
Just like having the engine running on a ICE car. So if the 12 battery is too dead to fire up the controllers the HV battery can be energized and therefore can be charged either. So the battery is likely not dead enough to have the car be completely dead (no door locks no nothing) but too dead to pull in the line contactor for the HV battery.
This car you will look forward to driving. This is just something that happens with a Tesla. You will want to drive to work just to drive. I driven many types of cars and this is the only one that made me feel like that. Reasoning i think is 1 it is relaxing with the minimalist interior and autopilot. It is exhilarating when i want it to be with the handling and power. I drive when i want and it drives the boring stuff.
4 years ago I discovered Bogleheads and since then, I’ve followed the 3 fund passive index funds approach and turned all my attention to improving in my professional space. It turns my stomach thinking back how much more savings I would have today if had cashed out at the top or even if I just stuck to 3 fund index investing from the beginning. Today I still have over $100k in carried over cap losses I been writing off in my tax returns $3k at a time for many more years to come and I consider that tuition from the school of hard knocks and reminders of my hubris.
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?
Should I go for it or not?Maybe they have better colors in Abu Dhabi as they get a lot of those “Individual” colors by default but what a lot of people don realize is any car bought from BMW Abu Dhabi does not have the ConnectedDrive features so things like being able to control your car and locate it via the smartphone BMW Connected app doesn work, and live traffic feature doesn work that a big deal for me as the GPS will offer you an alternative faster route should it detect traffic congestion.
The Mazda Miata earned its spot on top of this list for one reason: It is the best “driver’s car” of the bunch the one that dominates Autocross events nationwide and single handedly resurrected the old fashioned British Roadster concept. The Miata is anything but practical, and, for those living in northern climates, it won’t be particularly great to drive in the snow, but the handling and rear wheel drive brilliance all summer long will more than make up for it. In fact, many Miatas in northern areas such as “Minnesnowta” and Wisconsin have been summer only cars since they were first purchased. Therefore, you’ll be able to find a purist driver’s car with relatively few miles on it (considering the age) on a reasonable budget.
My asset situation is i have about 11k in my 401k, about 7k in checking and 25k in savings that im specifically using for a down payment on a house. (hasnt happened yet because property prices keep going up and i dont know if im ready to own my own place yet).
You can have a great driving experience with modern convertibles. These are basically small cars with large, retractable sunroofs which are made up of high quality textiles. Cabrio coaches were very popular in Germany in the 1930s. These cars are a little less expensive than full convertibles due to their single body frames.
The 5 series is a real drivers car and feeds road data better than the Benz of the same years.The Porsche is brilliant for parts delivery straight from the factory and are a delight to work on if you love fine German engineering.I have rebuilt a 911 carrera motor in the middle of the Northern Territory jungle.
