Utilising the Chevy platform (Corvette C5 1997 2004), this car needs a few more parts to complete than the other Factory Five kits. If you’re on a budget, you can buy a donor car. If you have a large pile of cash under your bed, how about completely new and upgraded parts and a stock Chevy LS or even the beast that is the Corvette ZR 1 638bhp LS9 engine?
I made the point that BMW cars are by and large not cheap therefore they can make EVs today since they don play in the same price points like Dacia for example which has a legitimate reason why they can mass produce compelling EVs in 2019 due to the price of batteries and other components. Sure they could make some shitty 20 kWh, takes 2 days to charge, can go over 80 kph golf carts but nobody wants those shitty things on the market since they are not mainstream machines. A well engineered electric BMW today can be mainstream and the costs to make it happen are already cheap enough. It not cheap enough to enable 70 kWh, >100 kW charging, 3s from 0 to 100 kph Dacia Sandero EV, but cheap enough for a $60000 BMW with those exact specifications.
Most apprehension is a combination of real range limitations and great if unknown. The range is what it is, the unknown (Bev v ice) is a case of”the devil you know”. Bev (and the i3 in particular) has exceeded my expectations in that regard. My only wish is that the car has a range of 300+ miles.
How much time do you average researching your topic for HubPages?I find that I spend at least 3 to 4 hours reading and researching a topic before I even start to write my hub. Maybe that’s why I average one hub a week. Do you have any hints or tips for speeding up the process?What did we learn from this on going recessionby Om Prakash Singh 10 years ago
The third generation MR 2 (1999 2007) was called the MR 2 Spyder, or MR S in some markets. It was only sold as a true convertible and had only one engine option a 1.8 L inline 4 with 138 hp. While the engine was less powerful than that of the previous generation (especially the turbo), the car’s lightness allowed it to perform equally well as cars with more power. A third generation MR 2 is going to run you about 8 18k.
I had my F30 328d for 1.5 years and 20k miles. No problems related to the engine, but it only just touching 50k miles now, I would hope it could last that long. 🙂 I wasn interested in the E90 335d because I didn need the power and the fuel economy wasn all that great. I been crazy happy with the fuel economy I gotten so far, my best tank was 52mpg, it was pure highway miles. Around town with mixed driving I get 38 40mpg. I do have alot of sprinter diesel customers with the 3.0 V6 diesel, most of their issues are emissions related and can be very expensive (if they don travel any to Cali, its pretty much mandatory to delete) other then that, the classic throttle petal issues, about $600 to $900 depending on the year, oil issues with over heating (The 3.0 V6 is like the old Jeep 4.0 when it comes to the oil issues, fantastic engine, runs forever, but if it ever goes over 15 20 degrees over its normal operating temperature, there is no forgiveness, that motors done, $9,000 to $14,000 for a new engine) and the timing chain stretching problems.
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.
/ Simon de BurtonEmailTwitterPinterestFacebookThe word “exclusive” might have become devalued in recent years, but exclusivity is most definitely what luxury is all about theexperience of not simply owning things that are special, but owning things that are sospecial that not many (and preferably not any) otherpeople have them. And when it comes to high end cars, meeting that requirement off the shelf isbecoming increasingly difficult.
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.))
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.
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.
This is true of all cars, even Hondas of that era (specifically the Accord Traction Control pump). Things like that are NCT fails too.Do you know a good independent mechanic? If not, find one.For 2k, an E90 will have interstellar mileage at this point too.Ask about the Swirl flaps and if they have been replaced.
After hours on the World Wide Web, the cheapest option I could find was a universal 02 sensor for 67.99 at AutoZone. I also came across some posts for VW’s, BMW’s, and Mercs all stating that they were using cheap Ford oxygen sensors, and replacing the harness plug, like you would have to do with the universal 02 sensor anyway. I could not find any documentation on someone using this sensor on an MKIV, but others stated it works great on their MKIII, so for the greater good of mankind I gave it a go.
I trying to play the career, but I find myself having shitloads of not fun. Which is kind of bad, since fun is the whole point of playing, right?Right now I wrestling the BMW Z4, supposed to do the first race (sprint) of the N2 stage. I put about 6, maybe 7 8, hours on practice with that car (none of them particularly fun.) on Nrburgring GP (short/sprint whatever it called) without managing to achieve better times than 1.50.3.Any time I try to run the sprint against the AI opponents, I have no problem getting up to third position on the start straight, but then there no chance in hell to keep up with the first two cars.
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.
A result with a bad cap is water heats more quickly and its counterpart steam occurs at a lower temperature. Usually it will spill over into the coolant reservoir tank. When it is steam it simply dissipates making detection more difficult. At times the coolant reservoir will be a dingy dirty look like there was muddy water present if the radiator is afoul from lack of maintenance.
The 110v LVL1 charger is really only intended for occasional use (referred to as the OUC often.) If you have the means it highly recommended you get a LVL2 charger. It will allow you to precondition the battery as well as the cabin. Which is very helpful with range especially in extreme weather.
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.
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?
I been researching about the F30 328D in North America and I curious what the ownership costs are. So far I read there are a couple issues such as: NOx sensor going bad (Been trying to find DIY guides, but there doesn seem to be any) Transfer case going bad (Replacing with an used unit a bad idea?)
You can expect to spend anywhere from $4,000 to $13,000 on a Toyota Celica, depending on year, miles, and condition. Clearly, the 7th generation GT S is the best, but unfortunately “best” also means “more expensive.” Even if you can’t find a GT S in your price range, a regular Celica will provide lots of fun in an economical and practical package.
While I have done this, a lot of the time it not fun even solo, and with my family (inc. 2 kids) it no way Jose, we need to stop for bathroom breaks and stuff. So your 5 minutes at a gas station? Those are stops that should be compared to non roadtrip use of the cars, in which case you comparing to 0 minutes on the Tesla since you don stop at all, as you charge at home and never see a SuperCharger.
Usually there is a weep hole on the bottom of the water pump when the bearing starts wearing out, it breaks a seal and anti freeze will drip from directly from the front of an engine. you do not mention year make or model or mileage of your vehicle, loosen the radiator cap just enough to keep pressure from building up, and keep the overflow topped off and check the radiator when it is cold to be sure there is enough coolant, this may buy you some time, but you need to get under the truck and find out where it is coming from.

Fun to drive. The main reason I wanted a Mini was because they looked so fun to drive. Once I got behind the wheel, I knew it was a good choice. They can quickly go fast, make turns without a problem, and can practically park anywhere. A don’t really care to drive, but when I do, I want it to be in a fun car. Of all of the vehicles I have owned, the Mini has been the most fun.
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.
If you live in a single family house and have a driveway or garage that you can park next to a wall, get a 240V “EVSE” (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment, colloquially but incorrectly called a “level 2 charger.”) Unless you have a 240V, 30A electric dryer style outlet available right next to where you want to park, you need an electrician to install one.
Is that an extra Rainier or the one in YOUR SUV? If it’s in your SUV and you are happy with it there, just leave it be. My DS (dear son) was 46″/46 on his 5th birthday, and I harnessed him in a Frontier till 6.7 yo (49″, 55). Then I moved him into a Diono Monterey.
Used” front luxury cars depreciate way more steeply than most. You might want to investigate that a little before buying new. If you like me you could never have enough money to be happy wasting it.Can I ask why you considering the car if you can wrap your mind around it? I love cars too so no typical /r/pf judgment, but if you coming from something like a Corolla why not something in the middle? A $30K Mustang V 8 or even the Ecoboost, a recent $15K used Miata, hell, even a used BMW 340i or the prior gen 335i? Plenty of fun to be had without needing to buy an M3 rocketship that will empty your wallet every time you need a repair.Personally I think you can afford it but if you feeling hesitance already, why not save yourself ten grand, thirty grand, etc.
Also, compare offers for the same car across various dealerships near you. Is one dealer offering the car for $22k OTD? But another one closer to you is only offering $23k OTD? Then throw a counteroffer at the second dealer for $22k OTD, knowing full well that $22k OTD is an achievable price (since first dealer already offered it).
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).
