I have a Marathon 70 a roundabout 50 and I had a classic MA (its now expired it got lots of loving) I love my britax seats. The new seats should fit great in the smaller car, the new ones sit slightly different and the shell is slightly shorter, so it takes up a little less room when rear facing then the older seats. Just note the seat has two down sides it more then likely will not be your last seat before a traditional booster and if you want to ERF for a long time its not the best choice. However if you keep that in mind its not a bad choice.

Spitballin here.$250K gross $60K taxes (guess) $37K 401Ks $60K expenses $36K to savings leaves $57K. Sure. Pay it off in a year.Word of caution. I went down this road. Was always frugal. Got to where I could afford it. Got a real nice 5 series just out of its 4 year warranty (new would have been affordable but this seemed like what I wanted at a better value).

It then took us several days to get a slot at our dealer to get the problem addressed, where the dealer found that there was a gasket in the hood area that had become displaced. (Since being repaired, we have no more leakage issues.)(We did, however, have fogging issues all winter long, as moisture coming from the saturated carpet was a problem!!) (now that we’re into the warmer spring weather, the fogging issue seems to have resolved itself.))

And then you be stuck in a mode of buying new luxury cars, which will be a major expense over your lifetime and it matter less and less.Another alternative is to save up to buy the car you want with cash. It easy to overspend when you thinking about a car in terms of payments, but the tradeoffs are more stark when you pay with cash.That said, I won be the pf stereotype of saying “no new cars or luxury cars ever”.

Throughout this whole process I kept thinking: I could walk into any BMW, Porsche, Toyota, whatever dealership with this pre approved loan and leave with a new car in less than 60 minutes most likely. If it took longer, it only be because they getting me a bigger discount or getting it delivered from another store.

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.

/ Matthew SheahanEmailTwitterPinterestFacebookAs BMW Oracle Racing’s USA 17 crossed the finishing line for the second and final time on February 14 2010, winning the world’s oldest international sporting trophy had cost the team roughly $720,000 per minute. At least, that was the best guess by experts who have suggested that BMW Oracle Racing’s campaign for the 33rd America’s Cup cost as much as $200m. But even this extraordinary sum spent during three years of preparation for two races that lasted a total of 4 hours and 39 minutes didn’t really reveal the true expense. Software billionaire Larry Ellison’s crusade for the America’s Cup started with the formation of his team in 2000, yet despite being among the best funded, his 2002 2003 and 2007 campaigns both failed to get the team into the position of eventual challenger. If the costs of these endeavours were taken into account, the final tally for Ellison’s success could be as much as $500m.

His residual is 6k as per KBB private party. That fine and dandy, but unless he takes the effort to sell the vehicle on his own (which most people sadly don he might get $3500 for trade in value on an exceptionally good day, of course heavily depending in the condition of the car.

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 bfakn.club CarPlay screen depending on your location.

The Verdict: The Mazda Miata provides the handling capability of much more expensive sports cars in an affordable package. While it isn’t practical and won’t carry more than one passenger, this is the best performing sports car in its price range. If you need something practical, this isn’t the car for you. But if you are looking for a car that you can use as a daily driver and also take to the Autocross course and have success, you’ll want to take a serious look at a Miata!

The first Mitsubishi Eclipse was sold in 1990, but, like the Celica, the most appealing Eclipse models will be the second through fourth generations (1995 2012). Obvious benefits of these later generations are that they will be newer and carry fewer miles, but another factor to consider is the major styling upgrades that separated the later generations from the first.

I had someone slam on their breaks the other day on a fast road, fully stopped, no cars coming, waiting for 2 or 3 minutes until they put their indicator on, then turned. I’m glad I plan ahead when driving and have good reactions to idiots. I could go on forever

We went through a million options, but basically I have a negative equity of $15000 that would have to be rolled into a new lease, making my payment on even a base model BMW higher than what I am paying now and for a 36mo term instead of my remaining 15mo lease. We looked at doing a buy back of my car instead of a lease trade in, but it was originally so overvalued in our deal that I am still negative the 15000. I listed it on lease trader but doubt that anyone will be interested in this car for that monthly price. They also mentioned financing my car to purchase, but three days after I got the car I was hit and it effected the alignment of the car so I am not interested in this option. We went to another BMW dealer different than the one that originally did the deal and they were shocked at what they had done to us. The only option seems to be for me to keep my car for a few more months and hope that BMW offers a pull ahead program again where they pay 3 4 of the remaining payments to get you into a new car. My boyfriend ended up leasing a new 530e and we plan on using his rebates for the electric car to pay down some of my car, but I would obviously ideally like to find a different way out of this.

But there was still more to this Cup of extremes. When the teams’ two boats appeared on the water the sailing public drew breath. Two of the biggest, most advanced multihulls that the sailing world had ever seen suddenly changed the mood among Cup followers. At last, the conversation switched from the frustration of complex court hearings, to that of the prospect of a spectacular battle of two behemoths on the water.

There is, of course, an argument to be had about how automatics outperform manuals nowadays. This is usually true! But the real issue for manuals falling out of favor on many supercars is that the demand just wasn’t there. And, truth be told, plenty of Lambos and Ferrari’s get sold to people who simply like them as status symbols. These people typically do not care to drive stick either.

This morning my MIL (mother in law) got into a small accident with DS (dear son) in the car. He’s fine, but now we need to get new car seats (might as well get the convertibles now). DS (dear son) is four months old and about 16 pounds and I’m not sure about how long he is, but he has short legs like we do. We want something that will keep him rear facing for a long time, so at least 40 pounds rf. DH (dear husband) has a 2002 BMW X5, I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant and MIL (mother in law) has a small sedan. She and I would share the our convertible as our cars would be used the least amount of time. What are your recommendations?

I still need to finish leveling it a bit, and order some top soil and spread it, and then plant grass. But is there anything I should make sure and do before that? I really do want this to be a very beautifully landscaped backyard, and I plan on doing all the work myself. I work full time though and only do this on weekends, so for now it just going to be grass and I design and install hardscape things later.

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.

Honestly I more nostalgic for the cars I wanted if I just had a bit more money when I was in high school. That was around 2010ish, and I dreamed of 90 WRXs, Legacy GTs, Evos, Integra and Civic Type Rs, basically sporty 90 Japanese cars that were just a bit out of my reach but some of the other kids in school had. I actually especially nostalgic for Starlet GTs and Glanza turbos because I came very close to buying one for my first car, before I came across a deal on an Accord Euro R.

Put the Defender outboard on passenger side for the teacher to help your son in/out of the car. It’s easy to buckle/unbuckle; by the time school starts, your son may be able to even do it himself! (And if the teacher or any other school parents complain to you about the extra 30 seconds it takes to buckle a child into a 5 point harness, tell them that at his young age and size, those 30 seconds make ALL the difference to his safety in a car crash. Isn’t a child’s life and future worth 30 seconds???)

It’s the same story with the MK4 Roadster as with the hot rod above: All you need is an engine (Ford 289/302, 351, or 4.6l 4V V8), transmission, rear end, paint, wheels, tyres, batter, and fuel pump. All in all, this is a great little bit of kit for the money, and it’s backed up by professional service, outstanding quality, and a great price! As with the ’33 Hot Rod, expect to pay upwards of $25,000 for a completed car.

OK, it might not use a Lamborghini V12, but it does let you fit a BMW V12! The early 5.0l from the late ’80s can be picked up cheaply and tuned up nicely to 400bhp+, and that will be enough for most! You’ll still need to source your gearbox, but most of the other components to complete this car are available from Parallel Designs, including at 6.0 VT and GT bodies. For a basic car using the Rover V8, expect to pay 25,000 and up and probably another 2000 for the V12 (with better gearbox, brakes and some engine mods.)

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.

I wish you luck in overcoming your suicidal thoughts and/or desires. I hope you understand that it not normal to want to die, and that while you may feel like you rationally considering things, the most likely possibility is that you are not, and you owe it to yourself to explore every opportunity to get better. There is hope. Even for me.

I’ve been driving for almost 20 years accident free. That translates to about 7,300 days of driving genius, with a substantial dose of switching to different sides of the road as I changed continents. So I take a measure of pride in my safe driving record, especially considering some of the places I have driven in. Not surprisingly, the German registration rules required me to obtain my own third party insurance from a German based insurer before my car registration would be processed. But imagine my surprise when I learned that no German insurer would recognise my driving record. Despite going to every major insurer in Germany, the answer was always the same: We do not accept insurance records outside of the European economic area. With no way to verify my insurance history, the quotes I received were sky high almost 30% of the vehicle’s value annually and all of that money for just third party insurance coverage. I was beyond words. The bureaucratic machine had busted me down to an 18 year old, albeit without the youth to match.

If the consensus view around the car from the

If the consensus view around the car from the company to owners who hold the company accountable is “hey, you’re contributing to the future of self driving” as it’s seemed to be, then I can’t be in. But if the pitch is “this is a great car that’s great to drive and brings the future to today” I’m interested in learning more. Hope that makes sense.

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.

One of the best ways to let people know about photo editing talent is to print or save samples and show them to friends and family in person or through social networks. You could help friends and family with their profile photos, too. This skill could be extremely popular and lucrative around the holidays, when people are preparing their annual holiday cards with photos.

Will others have better than chance odds of being correct in saying that the person is a pretentious sheep? LOL, no. I assume they drive the car because they want to. There is nothing pretentious about driving a car you want and can afford. Its not my place to judge and decide how someone else should spend their hard earned money. To me this is silly. You wouldn’t drive a BMW because you are worried that others will view you as pretentious. I think you are puting way too much stock in what others think about you. Do you make any assumptions about the drivers of these cars? No.

Using the same chassis and suspension as the MK4 Roadster, this one not only adds a roof but probably the sweetest rear on any car ever made! It was the result of some serious aero work done to beat Ferrari. Sadly the car never went anywhere, because the year after, Ford not only moved Shelby across to the GT40 program but sunk their race budget into beating Ferrari on European soil.

She found out during the filming of Evita that she was pregnant with her daughter Lourdes, with Carlos Leon, her personal trainer. Madonna is not a terrific singer, or the most beautiful woman around, but she knows how to market herself, and how to handle her money. When she wrote her 1998 album Ray of Light, she was interested in Eastern Mysticism and the Kabbalah, and claims that her perception of life changed quite a bit.

Then get an EVSE. They not expensive. A good one with WiFi for remote monitoring is $500. The electrician work should be another $500 or less. (I paid $200 for a used EVSE that doesn have WiFi, and because I was installing my EVSE immediately outside and below my breaker box, the electrician fee to install the outlet was only $250.) Yes, you can use the included 120V cable, but it isn meant for every day use.

Vise gripsRemoving the Old Oxygen SensorThe very first thing that needs to be done is spray all around that sensor with your WD 40, Liquid Wrench, or whatever. If you’re not sure where the primary sensor is, look at the first picture below, go to your car and look between the firewall and intake manifold, and you will see it; the wires stick up like a cute little puppy tail on the back of the heat shield.

Oh, and of course, the best bit, you get to build it yourself! If that’s not something you’ve done before, fear not, most of these cars can be built relatively easily, and there is plenty of help out there on forums. The Factory five forums are very very impressive, so are the GT40 ones.

Focus STs are WAAAAY more fun than a 328i, and they sold brand new for less than 24k. Find a lightly used one for 15k and get way more practicality from it due to it being a hatch. Will also come with significantly lower insurance payments and exponentially less in maintenance costs. You can go less practical with a Mazda MX 5, those are fun as hell. I could go on, but I have a feeling that recommending other cars isn going to convince you.

The marque in question is Alpina, the officially recognised tuning house that has been enhancing BMWs since the early 1960s, yet which remains largelyunder the radar. Alpina’s story is remarkable. Itsroots go back to 1962, when German engineering andbusiness student Burkard Bovensiepen took theinitiative to develop a twin carburettor unit for theBMW 1500 while seeking a reliable sporting model to indulge his passion for making cars go faster. His idea proved so successful that, by 1965, Bovensiepen was able to register Alpina Burkard Bovensiepen KG asan official business offering a portfolio of accessories to enhance the latest BMW models.

Yes, I know the warning that cars like Mercedes and BMW can cost a lot to maintain, but we’re not talking regular maintenance here. I was rear ended on the 285 a few weeks ago, and the guy at the shop asked me how I liked the car. I subconsciously hesitated in my response, and he called me on it. He then told me his boss had the same car and had multiple complaints, including the sunroof and electronic glitches that required him to enter from the passenger side. I’ve heard a few other tales as well.

That said, my wife forgot to charge my i3 one night and I was almost stranded. luckily I limped into a BMW dealership that had one and 10 minutes later I had enough to get home. not particularly a big deal, if it had been AC I would have left 30 minutes later.

Then, cash assistance is now called work first. You get like 200 bucks a MONTH for a family of 3 but you have are required to look for a job atleast 25 hours a week. And to top it off, if you pos SD (sperm donor) does pay child support the state takes it as rembursement till what they gave you is paid back.

Operation of the mp3 player is very much like using your phone. You can either use the dash to browse your mp3 files or use the voice commands. You can, however, use the dash to browse your mp3 files while the vehicle is in motion. I try to avoid this because of the obvious driving distraction hazard. Voice commands for the mp3 player include “play artist”, “play album”, “play playlist”, “next track”, and “previous track”. When you connect your mp3 player to your vehicle the computer may tell you it cannot index all the files on your device. Do not despair if you get this message. The computer won’t download your pictures or videos to the vehicle, only audio files. When your mp3 player is playing through the Sync system, the artist’s name and current song title will be displayed on the dash screen.

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.

Downhill All the WayIn the second year around 120,000 Pacers were sold but the cracks were beginning to show. The engine was slow and unresponsive, the car taking over 14 seconds to get to 60mph, and it only clocked around 16mpg, less if you used the air conditioning, which you did because of all that glass. It was hard to park because of the width and weight, and mechanical faults were beginning to show through. The electrics were proving unreliable and there were reports of the steering seizing and failing due to the extra weight and strain imposed on the steering rack by the heavy engine.

As we had owned a Honda Civic that we got 210,000 mi. out of, and drove for free for 11 yrs., and after just purchasing another one for my wife, which she loves, I felt that I had to investigate the Fit, and compare it to other, similar types of vehicles.

7) Jay Inslee. He pretty much the typical Governor type. It refreshing hearing from someone in the executive branch instead of a Senator since they tend to be more pragmatic, jack of all trades, and experienced in getting results; tradeoff if they tend to be weaker on policy and don have focused strong issue points. That being said, he only really stood out for environmental concerns and he otherwise pretty cookie cutter. He make a fine VP pick if he didn come from a safe (D) state.

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.

In short, promoting hybrids at the price ranges of BMW cars is pretty insulting. It might have made a lot of sense 10 years ago but now it too late to claim the batteries are too expensive for them. Their customers could very well be against EVs but they also failed to promote their offerings to outside buyers that didn care for BMW to begin with. They made no good EV thus the demand is low, they blame the demand being low to justify why EVs aren practical right now. That just insane logic, it only natural for buyers to not be interested in products that are not currently relevant, let alone future proof. Who among i3 buyers feel ready for 350 kW chargers and long distance traveling or highway cruising around the country? Come on now, it just too convenient to blame it on the market being unwilling to adopt, maybe they just don 바카라사이트 want to be sold obsolete cars that will quickly lose value.

Using your mp3 playerYou can use the Sync system to voice or dash operate your mp3 player if you have the mp3 player plugged into the vehicle’s USB port. I use an iPod Touch in my car but I’m sure nearly all of Apple’s iPod products will work. There is a list of compatible mp3 players on the Sync website.

Saving R$. Watch for the special deals when vehicles become available for purchase. A car you just unlocked would usually go for 20% off, and RR3 often run sales on a particular high end vehicle for 40% off or more, but you need to be a pretty impressive driver to buy those.

Once the box is down, as you can see in the pictures, there is a little plastic wall that holds the harnesses in place. The brown harness is for the post (back) 02 sensor and the black is for the primary (front) 02 sensor. Pull the black harness out of the wall and unclip it. Once it is unclipped release the wires from the clips along the bottom.

Failing individual aspects of scrutineering is common in motorsports, as a engineer you always go into scrutineering knowing that if theres any detail you missed it will be picked up on so that you can correct it. As long as the scrutineers point it out and its fixed before the race starts everything good, no harm no foul. The Keating engineers would gone into scruinteering knowing that if they missed anything it be pointed out, would finished it confident that their car is legal, again with possible minor modifications, only to have the organisers turn around and say “actually we weren really paying attention last time so your disqualified, sorry better luck next year.” Its really soul crushing for the team.

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.

We are doing something similar, where we have a 4 door Ford Fusion and a 2 door Honda Civic, and because of twins, both cars are tight for rear facing (because there isn’t any middle LATCH in the 4 door and I have long legs!) but we FINALLY found an infant car seat that will work in both cars: the Nuna Pipa. It’s a high end carseat, but only a little bit more overall than the 200 dollar seats we were looking at. Certainly, less than a car payment

When he was a boy he made a mannequin and kept it inside a special case. Then he found a stone, and painted each half a different color, and added that to his case. He would write messages in his own secret language, and add those as well. He later said this felt like a ceremonial act, but at the time of his boyhood, it gave him a feeling of peace and serenity. When he got older, he realized that people in some civilizations kept totems, or soul stones, and celebrated these unconscious rituals in the same way he did with his items as a boy. His studies on psychological archetypes and the collective unconscious were inspired by these boyhood experiences.

I kept waiting for a great trade in to come in that some other person didn like and that what happened. I got a BMW 3 series out the door for 26k.I feel like I got a great deal from my research so maybe you can find a deal that great but it is definitely doable I make about 75k a year now and plan on driving it for a long time.

I lusted for BMWs for years. I was this kid, albeit with BMWs (and also Porsches, but also mainly BMWs). And I still remember exactly where I was the moment I first knew I wanted one: July Long Beach Island, NJ, playing mini golf just off Long Beach Boulevard, when a Estoril Blue E36 M3 tore past. I was hooked. Or rather, “truly afflicted.”.
