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).

We were looking at them because we wanted something roomy and comfy on the road that had memory seats, heated seats and wheel, and a big moonroof and I still like a big V6 over a turbo 4 the LaCrosse was one of the cars that ticked the boxes. Cooled seats, seat massagers and a HUD were options that came with the Premium trim and I glad we got them I turn the massagers on every time I get in (and I been trying to figure out how to retrofit some into my old Mustang).

BMWs in general are expensive to maintain due to parts cost and increased hourly rates since the cars are priced higher than average to begin with. If you want a diesel car you either get an MB, BMW, Jaguar, or Chevy Cobalt. Only the Chevy Cobalt will be cheap to maintain, but finding a quality mechanic to maintain the diesel in the Chevy may prove difficult.

I enjoyed my Infiniti, but after four years of operating a rear wheel drive car in snowy New England, I decided that my next car had to be either front wheel drive or all wheel drive. So, I was very excited to learn that Audi now had a super powerful, 3.2 liter, all wheel drive version of the TT.

This sub is non partisan. It is not pro Leave nor pro Remain. It has regular contributors from the whole spectrum of politics. This sub is to provide a polite, fact based space for discussion. Remainers and Leavers are both welcome here, as long as everyone is respectful towards everyone else. Disagreement is fine as long as all parties remain civil.

Is coming from an guy who owned 6 BMWs, including 3 M3s and an 750i. BMWs do drive great and look good. My hunch is if no issues have arose in a year and a half, it was done by the book. Finance companies won fund a deal if some thing is slightly off line. I guessing somebody would have caught on to a missing lease and some elaborate plot to commit fraud, all to lease one vehicle to a customer who even offered their own solution.

A worse case scenario is a head gasket leak or cracked cylinder head. To check those properly is to do a combustion leak check. That is done with another tester. It is basically is a litmus test. A chemical is placed in the checker, inserted at the radiator opening, and if it changes to a color while the engine is running. That is a result of combustion gasses present in the cooling system. Then there usually is a bad head gasket or possibly a cracked cylinder head.

Would you let a 12 year old drive your car?Jump to Last Post 1 15 of 15 discussions (32 posts)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.

In many ways, it feels like a prototype. If you more like a pioneer, you love this. However that being said, I would recommend buying used with a decent amount of original warranty miles remaining. I don believe my trusty independent BMW shop is able to service so you going to be stuck with the dealer rates and attitudes. In that light, I be careful with the extent of coding on your own just so that you don void a warranty.

I mainly like open wheelers, that what I really want to drive. With the risk of sounding like someone coming straight from Need to Speed, driving the Z4 almost feels like driving on ice. Not really, but I really don get the car. Even just a hint of trail braking and the rear comes around.

John Murphy, an analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, is bullish on Ferrari stock with a buy rating and a $150 price target. He said the Icona series cars (the Monza SP1 and SP2), as well as the other 15 all new or redesigned models that Ferrari announced as part of its 2018 2022 business plan, will help broaden the product lineup and boost revenue.

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, 바카라사이트 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.

Also picked a pretty convenient year to stop your chart, since it immediately fell back off starting in 89, down to a low of 17,000 in the early 90 look at that, the Mets were good and their attendance was higher. Now then fast fwd to the 90s and the Yankees dynasty starts. And obviously attended and fandom switches back.

If money wasn’t stopping you from purchasing your dream car, what would it be anby Christy G 7 years agoIf money wasn’t stopping you from purchasing your dream car, what would it be and why?I know that most people are unable to afford the car of their dreams.1What would be your dream car?by LeonJane 8 years agoWhat would be your dream car?If money wasn’t an option what car would you pick? Would it be and Italian sports car? Would it be a classic car or big block V8? would it be an antique car?

Answer:If it worked before, it should still work now. Make sure the remote has been learned by the car. Then push and release the learn button on the machine. Go back to the car and push the car’s remote you programmed. If the light bulb on the machine flashes once, it has learned it. Is it possible to program the newer vehicle to a garage door opener without the remote?

A better drive than most.I also like early 5 series BMW’s but you need to know about their design faults. You can buy a well sorted one if you know what you are doing.I have listed the design faults for each series on my BMW hubs.I had an early Benz that was very well built, but am not a fan of the Mercedes Benz drive.

NEVER. Is that worth something to you? Certainly is to me, and to my wife too who hates gas stations. So now, we already not comparing apples to apples since in the ICE you HAVE to always stop at a gas station, unless you produce your own gas at home (har, har).

Nobody really knows how Lexus did it, but the fast revving 4.8 Litre V10 in the LFA was so fast that they had to replace a traditional rev counter with dials with an electronic one. An extremely futuristic exhaust and cockpit ensured that the LFA was literally a car that was one of a kind and anyone lucky enough to be able to afford and buy it was indeed buying and preserving a piece of unique art and history.

Do not get me wrong, on two occasions as a youth I was whooped upon and jailed and then released without charges as a youth. I was known, due to sports, but I also wrote and distributed an underground newspaper with forbidden information back then clean needles, contraceptives, petitions for all kinds of things, family planning, locations for anti war demonstrations. And I wore my hair pretty wild for a backwater town.

Obviously they woud say that it was a big setback so they can “blame” most things for it if the development would have gone wrong. As would do any other manufacturer. About the factory mindset, what the point in using MTEK for developing the car when BMW have Team Schnitzer that is a much more experienced, proven team in both car developing and endurance racing? What the point in leaving the WEC after just one season, when the road car isn even ready.

From easiest and less is the following. A consideration many overlook is the radiator cap itself. If it does not maintain a specified pressure the system will run hotter. When water is under pressure the boiling point is raised. Many parts stores will test the cap for you for free. Caution is strongly advised to only remove the cap when the engine is cold. Best have a professional do this.

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.

You have to learn respect for others first. it helps you to become a better person and a person that respects rules.i bought a video that will certainly help him with this but he refuses to watch it at all. his dad and i stopped taking him out for driving lessons until he proves to us he is capable of respect for others and the responsiblity he should be capable of.

I really feel they have a ton more grip than I do. Do I just suck even worse than I think I do?With about 70 hours in AC I would think I be able to at least get 3rd position in that damn race.The thing is, I hate driving street cars with no grip, like that damn BMW Z4.

My i3 has the 20″ tires without winter tires, you will need to use Traction Control, drive carefully and slower than you probably used to. I don feel like the car is going to lose control on straights; its mostly in turning in snow/ice and definitely resistant braking gives the whole car a shimmy slide move which is disconcerting. My rear wheel drive M3 with blizzaks was almost like driving with an SUV in snow much more control.

I was spending on average about $400 a month in gas, and Jan I spent $5.46.I would recommend getting an optioned out car. The bigger screen is beautiful, the HK audio sounds great, and although the adaptive cruise isn perfect, I still wouldn get an i3 without it. It made my mundane commute so much more enjoyable.Def go for a test drive.

To the best of my knowledge, I am no more of a jerk or sheep now that I have my dream car than I was when I was rocking cassette tapes in my beater. It’d be sort of stupid to assume any different about someone else just because of their car. Why not? Everyone does. It can be fun.

My financial situation is not that different from yours, although I have a lot more rental property, much more savings (more than half a decade of frugal living expenses), and a slightly lower income in most years (single, no kids).Was it a financially good decision? Resoundingly no. But it was an investment in the future, not just my personal one, but also ours and a personal statement.

It was common with those cars, particularly the coupe models and if your in an accident your insurance won pay out if the car is re specced. Plus, if there high mileage I strongly reccomend you get a mechanic you trust to check out the car. Even the best petrol engines will tend to calve after 120k miles, particularly in a BMW because the youngfellas who tend to be the third owner drive the arse out of them.My advice? If your going to by any car more than 10 years old buy a diesel for reliability.

The following morning is spent perfecting each driver’s seating position (a vital detail which, if incorrect, can dramatically hamper progress) and learning the various steering techniques that might need to be employed in order to tackle the Nordschleife’s many and varied technicalities. After that, it’s time to undertake your first laps. These happen behind a pace car, which enables fledglings to follow the correct lines at the correct speed and therefore remain, literally, “on track”.

You have a shiny new car and want to program your garage door opener to it sounds easy enough. So you get out your garage door remote control and your new car’s owner’s manual for the instructions from the manufacturer to be able to program the remote control to the car.

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.

Wood quality Most often, the cabinet face frames and doors are made of solid wood, but it is generally Russian Birch, even if they advertise it as Cherry. Some manufacturers offer real Hard maple, Oak and even Cherry, but the quality of the lumber is below our domestic select grade. They are basically using the least desirable cuts of lumber that the domestic cabinetry and furniture markets can’t or won’t use. There is nothing wrong with this approach. Just be sure that if it’s Cherry cabinets you are after, it’s real Cherry cabinets you are getting.

Last week, BMW unveiled plans to increase the production capacity at its Pretoria based Rosslyn plant, the company’s first production facility outside Germany, built in 1973. The move is expected to enable BMW to double its exports from the country Donauer says that 80% of the cars produced at the plant are exported to countries across the world.

I highly recommend searching around on the web for lease calculators (leasehackr has a great one) and getting the selling price, residual, and money factor for the car that you really want (dealers should give this to you, or you can check the forums on edmunds). Run those numbers through the calculator and see what your lease price should be.
