It seems that more and more BMWs and Mercedes are appearing around here. I’m not sure if they have a great leasing deal or what, but they are becoming so common! I would prefer a Mercedes, they have a MUCH smoother drive than BMWs. Plus, I think they are a lot more beautiful, too.
When the baby is older though I would definately do two convertibles, so you will not have to be moving the seat constantly. Also, if you are interested in the Radians they are going really cheap right now, so it may be worth it to buy now and save them. BUT then you run the risk of losing potentially two years of use depending on the manufature date.
[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 your 18th birthday. Everyone is staring at you. You finally decide to check the database.
For the sliding it to another point thing. In my mom’s accord, the place on the vehicle seat track where I could fit the D ring was a few inches toward the front of the vehicle. Once I got the strap threaded through, I was able to slide it further back towards the end of the seat track. There wasn’t enough space to thread the D ring at that point, but there was enough room for the strap portion to slide in between the track and the vehicle there.
Cool. Then, I sure you would be able to make the payment. But I take a little time to read up on “hedonic adaptation” and think about your long term financial priorities. If you start with a new BMW right out of school you be inured to it soon enough.

Well, he took my information and let me go. People in the area say that the cops often do a stealth swoop, and pull over the first person they see, to see if they can catch a drunk. Well, unknown to that jackass. I didn’t have a drop of alcohol, I don’t smoke, or do drugs. So he was out of luck.
In order to connect to the OBD II port and read the ECU information, you need an adapter and a reader (or a single unit that does both, see below). There are a lot of options out there, but here I am reviewing a very inexpensive Bluetooth adapter that you can then connect to with an Android powered smartphone and use an app called Torque Pro to read the information. I’ve also included below a link to an all in one unit for those who don’t have or don’t want to use a smartphone.
And to declare that only you (or other citizen) has a right to determine the validity of police suspicion is just as wrong. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen any police brutality where the police had no reason to suspect that either a crime had been or soon might be committed.
So the best advice I can give you is to just keep going, even if you think you reached your limit you do it a tiny bit better each lap.First, get comfortable with the car, do some fast laps followed by some laps, where you try to drift the car a bit and take corners completely different like you used to.
I would tend to disagree while they don set lap times that are that much quicker than a GT3, they much harder to drive faster/better than a GT3. The GT3s are much more forgiving. I was in an IMSA race a week or two ago driving a GT3 and had to contend with GTE drivers who were slower than me in the corners, but (a little) faster on the straights, meaning they try and bfakn.club pass me in the corners, wouldn succeed, get bad exits from the corners then try again on the straight, get alongside me, try and pass, etc etc.
In the short time we’ve been together, however, I’ve had numerous complications with my little car and am now terribly disenchanted with what I always thought was stellar “German engineering.” In my own defense, I am NOT rough on my cars, I take care of my stuff, and I have a 12 year old custom Harley that’s in pristine condition.
I think your bigger issue is going to be liability insurance. Obviously I don know for sure what that will cost, but motorsports are very dangerous and death or debilitating injury are both possible and occur with some frequency. It not insurmountable, but could be expensive for the school to hold insurance like that (as in they may want, like, $5M liability insurance in the event a student is killed during a race).
Break ins happen, and I willing to bet your Ranger was hit instead of those BMW or MB because they knew the truck likely didn have an alarm and because of the aftermarket radio (I sure the BMW will have a pricey radio module, but people aren buying stolen 2016 BMW parts on craigslist unlike generic headunits).
I am glad I don have monthly payments now but looking back, buying a BMW was a great decision because I was 24 and I could afford it. Now, after marriage I don see myself buying a German car. I want peace of mind and that something that a German car does not give you. When I look at my wife Camry and her maintenance costs, I wonder is it worth it?
The Ford commercials that feature SyncWe’ve all seen the commercials from Ford Motor Company that feature the Microsoft Sync system on some of their vehicles. As an owner of one of those vehicles equipped with the Sync system, I can tell you how it actually works for those of you who do not know.
Bloomberg had some car engineers tear down a model 3. What they found was that it was over engineered in a way that didn’t benefit the overall product, but made production more complicated and expensive. They found that had Tesla used more traditional manufacturing methods like those of Toyota or Ford, they could have increased profit margins significantly without sacrificing any of the model 3′s safety or structural integrity.
To me, life is science. We are created from the most common atoms throughout existence and to think that we are somewhat special is fucking comical. Earth has been around for about 4.5 BILLION years and multi cell life only being around 600 MILLION years. I just some organism that will exist and die in a mere pinpoint on that timeline and my atoms will continue one just like they did the billions of years before I came into existence.
And buy something fun but not so insane? If you want to buy an M3 later, you can always sell your car and upgrade. Congrats on that first off.$50k for a vehicle at your income is within a reasonable purchase price for a vehicle. Put a decent chunk (20%+) down on it and keep the financing short.
Roughly 1/2 of your annual income. Also, if you take a loan out on the car, it could mean that the car will cost you 10 25% more than the sticker price. Yikes!Yes, saving up could take up to a year but you will save yourself from looking like a douchebag (to some) for buying a brand new bmw your first month of work at your first job.
The first part is a quote from BMWBLOG referring to the fact that BMW did a proof of concept last year with the VerifyCar app. The original post is here. I suspect whoever made the mash up image was using this to establish that yes, BMW and VerifyCar are connected, although the flaw in that is that BMWBLOG is not connected with BMW in its own words it “an independent private enthusiast site dedicated to BMW fans around the world and is in no way affiliated or owned by BMW AG”. However, it IS generally a reputable source on BMW, even if it not official.
You put off running an errand just so you can run it in the i3 instead of the old gas car. I got a supercharged jag in my garage that gathers dust, because frankly, I rather be driving the i3. And I say that not just because it cheaper although it STAGGERINGLY cheaper to drive the little electric car.
The “Announcement Package 1″, of tinted window and power steering was $139 and “Announcement Package 2″ of a front sway bar, steel belted radial tires and power front disc brakes was $203.45. So in order to get your Pacer up to scratch you had to part with the best part of $1,300, taking the price up to about $4,600.
Since 2003, Alpinas have been put together on specialproduction lines at BMW’s Munich, Dingolfing and Regensburg plants in Germany and its Spartanburg factory in the US, with every model being sent to Alpina’s headquarters in Buchloe for the finishing touches to be applied. Around 250 employees work at the Buchloe HQ where Alpina has been based since 1970 and it is from there that the Alpina components are shipped to the BMW assembly lines. It is at Buchloe, too,that modelling and prototyping are carried out, engine and gearbox upgrades are designed, specialised parts are made and the in house saddlery workshop produces the cars’ superb hand stitched interiors usingflawless Lavalina leathers.
Less Room to Swing a CatThe power unit was to have been a cutting edge rotary Wankel engine purchased from General Motors. The car was designed around that engine. Unfortunately GM withdrew, as the Wankel was proving neither reliable nor fuel efficient, and in the wake of the 1974 Arab oil embargo this was now an issue. The engine also produced high amounts of N0x gasses that would not comply with the new emissions regulations. straight six under the hood. It was a tight fit but they squeezed it in. This change compromised the interior space and effectively rendered it a four seater as it necessitated the use of a drive tunnel to get the power to the rear wheels which took up space in the rear seating area. The Wankel which would have been front wheel drive would have needed no such tunnel. The car was still roomy but not as roomy as it might have been.
Later if you must get an prestigious badged car (It arguable in SoCal if any of the big 3 german brands can be viewed as prestigious short of the $150k+ semi exotics), go buy an 3 year old CPO BMW for 50% of MSRP while still having 2 3 more years of CPO warranty coverage.
I would test the car seats out in the BMW before buying. Install the forward facing radian in the third row and see how it fits. Also climb back there yourself and your husband and see if you fit and would want to sit back there, or if it will be a useful third row for anyone.
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.
Starting in 1981 there’s the DeLorean DMC 12, which was pretty much a classic the moment it came off the line. Then in the mid 1980′s there’s the Buick Grand National (and even better the Grand National GNX). A black muscle car from Buick that is sure to be desirable well into the future.
7. Caterham Super 7 R400Caterham is known around the world for their Lotus 7 replica. In fact, it’s not really a replica. It’s more of a continuation of the original design. It has, of course, been upgraded and developed over the years, and this, the R400 Superlight is the best of the build it yourself kits.
Last week the weather was nice so I tried to send the departure times to the car using the Connected app on my iPhone, and it failed. I did manage to get the climatize feature to work once, from the old i Remote app, but it also has failed every time I tried to send the departure times to the car.

Madonna married actor Sean Penn in 1985 on her birthday, while filming the video for Material Girl. She dedicated her album True Blue to him, but they divorced in 1987, because he drank and became abusive, and she admits to being obsessed with her career. Madonna also played the part of Eva Peron very well on the stage, a role she really wanted, which won her both a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award for the title song, “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.” Madonna studied with a vocal coach and has a serious work ethic. She was one of the first artists seen wearing a headset while performing on stage. She often had to lip synch because the dance numbers which accompanied her songs were so intense.
I merely comment on a bunch of unsupported half finished stories being called “shocking” while insinuating that a mother’s claims her son did nothing wrong while being abused from police are evidence of police brutality. There’s nothing shocking at all that a mother will defend her child against those nasty police; we see such stories every day. And while there are exceptions it almost always ends up that the child was doing something wrong; that the cops had both a reason and obligation to act as they did.
Warhol collaborated with a variety of people in his projects, and liked to surround himself with bohemian eccentrics. Andy Warhol was openly gay at a time when few admitted to being gay. David Bowie admits to being influenced by Warhol, and during the 1970′s, Warhol concentrated on portrait paintings of celebrities. Warhol was the founder of Interview Magazine, and his studio in New York, called The Factory, was a great meeting place for intellectuals, play rights, drag queens, wealthy patrons, and his much loved celebrities. dollars in 1963. He loved to party at Studio 54 and other spots where the elite loved to play. A lot of people called him a “business artist,” but Andy Warhol had a deep love affair with glamour, and sometimes even glamorous people use the same products regular people do.
“People who have a feel for a car get into an Alpina and instantly appreciate the steering reaction, the special suspension, the improved engine and so on but equally, people who don’t have that ‘feel’ tend to getin, drive for five miles and recognise that they are behind the wheel of something different,” says Andreas Bovensiepen, son of the founder and Alpina’s co owner and chief executive. “They feel that harmony.”
IntroductionBuying your first car can be an exhilarating experience, but it can also be a bit frustrating. Young driving enthusiasts often have a great deal of difficulty finding cars that are both affordable and fun to drive. On top of your budget and the car’s cool factor, its practicality and reliability have to be considered. For example, you can buy a Porsche 944 for less than ten grand, but insuring and keeping the car running will more often than not push the cost of ownership out of range for the average student.
Another comment you mention a cheap series define cheap. You may find some local ish oval tracks that offer an inexpensive 4 cylinder or V8 class, which is some of the only racing aside from karting I can think of where you can run a whole season for under $10k. Knowing what kind of budget you dealing with will be helpful. There is a huge difference between what you can run with a budget of $1k or $10k or $100k.

I purchased a new X5 It was great for the first year then the oil leaks started ruined my garage floor. Local dealer was not able to fix the leak. I had to add like a quart every two weeks. They told me and I quote BMWs leak. Heater blower died in middle of winter on ski trip. I purchased the X5 thinking it would be more dependable then the Range Rover I traded in for the BMW. I now own a JEEP Grand Cherokee and I am very happy with it. Very comfortable and reliable. Now when I see a Bimmer or RR I think back to all the tow and garage bills and the big oil stain and I appreciate my JEEP even more.6 months ago
Despite having installed an L2 charger. I never actually needed that charging speed. Most of my driving happens close to my house (about 35 miles per day, if I average it out), and the car is pretty much always topped up when I jump into it in the morning.So. should you get an L2 charger? I still say yes, because fast charging is nice.
Recently, I picked up a 1999 MKIV Jetta 2. It was slow, and as good as the thing looked, it ran like sht. After replacing the downpipe and cat (this car failed emissions hard), I was getting error code 16518, “No Activity Bank 1 Sensor 1″ on my VAG COM. As well as 16521, “Bank 1 Sensor 2 Signal Intermittent,” which I wasn’t too concerned about.
If you have read my other DIY’s you know I’m all about saving money, and 02 sensors are not cheap. For a “narrowband” oxygen sensor I have no idea what that means, so don’t ask the price ranges from $70 $200 depending what you buy and where you buy it from. Add on another $150 if you’re having the dealership change it for you. Sorry, but even $70 is too much for me, for a sensor.
Rule violators will be warned. Repeat offenders will be temporarily banned from one to seven days. An unheeded final warning will result in a permanent ban. Just in the past year Toyota and Honda now offer standard almost all the safety systems such as blind spot, land departure, emergency braking etc. As these become standard on most cars, they can no longer charge a premium for them. Case in point, on certain Lexus models, if you wanted blind spot, it a 4k trim level package, but it come standard on a Corolla. Car companies are running out of options to charge you for. I had people opt for non lux cars because they come with more safety gear thus they are charging for the apps, nav or ACP.(I dont have Apple CarPlay dunno what its benefits are)
What I saw from my numbers was that the Tesla does cost less to operate. But when I consider the additional up front costs and added insurance, it not quite competitive with Civics (or Accords) yet. Especially compared to the hybrids and/or if one doesn drive a lot. Of course, with different energy prices, different driving rates, etc, things change.
Water Pump and Thermostat Housing Leak: The water pump leaking on the first two generations of Minis was a fairly common occurrence. They often had to be replaced at over 50,000 miles. The thermostat housing in the second generation models were made of plastic. This would naturally break down over time.
On these lines, I was driving my son’s roadworthy, licenced and MOT’d but very scruffy car near my home and got pulled over by a rude aggressive arrogant wanker who strutted round and round the car trying to find fault, examined all my documents to try and find fault and eventually gave up and ‘let me off with a warning’ for nothing!
I paid off my student loan earlier this year so i have zero debt. My housing and other monthly costs are low. I have a 2007 Chevy Tahoe that is paid off with 106k miles. Its worth about 10 12k. I want to trade my truck in and finance the difference, which means i will ideally finance 10k.
I’ve never played Artifact, but just that simple animation pacing was done poorly in Eternal, Gwent, Shadowverse, and Elder Scrolls: Legends. I tried getting into those but those differences just make it harder for a new player to understand what their opponent is doing, and therefore understand the game. You can dig up play history but it’s just not as approachable, and that doesn’t work on twitch. And indeed, while watching Artifact, cards would fly around during the game quickly and I would have no clue what they were.
There also Nikon 70 200/2.8 AF S lenses of course, but, of course, they more money too. The 80 200/4 AF S VR is also very good I have that one at work and if you know you never need/want f/2.8, it is worth looking at. The old 80 200/2.8 AF S was very good but they all had motor issues and there were no parts to fix them anymore so unless something changed, I avoid them. There also the 80 200 AF D but that a manual focus lens on your D3500. If you need even more reach, there the 200 500/5.6 VR. I let someone else give you the rundown on the other 3rd party lenses and there all sorts of options if you want to spend a lot of money on lenses.
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).
I think that it also a bargain on the used market, because if you to to subreddits like /r/frugal everyone just blindly parrots “buy a Honda or Toyota.” Which means that on the used market, you artificially paying more because of the fierce competition. I happily buy a Fusion or a Mazda6. In fact, 3 years ago, I almost listened to the advice. I went and test drove the 1 size smaller vehicles. The Civic was bleh. The Corolla was double bleh. I strongly considered the Focus, but would have had to step back to a 2005 2010 to avoid the Focus PowerShift transmission. So I decided on a Mazda3 instead.
That puts my payment around $200 bucks a month. i currently pay 130 a month for insurance and this would go up to about 200 a month if i got the BMW. So i would go from $350 monthly vehicle expense to about 500. To me it is worth the extra 150 a month.
Jack kept talking, tilting her face to leave her mouth unobscured by the fur. “Your tail isn a cosmetic item actually. Along with your ears, it part of your racial features! That why you can move it around and also why you feel me touching it. One of the greatest draws of GBN for many people is that don have to look anything like your real life body! You could be an elf, have horns, a tail, animal ears, or even be a full on bipedal animal! There a high ranking leader that looks like a white stoat, he only like three feet tall!”
The Verdict: The Mitsubishi Eclipse is a great Japanese sports car with a variety of solid engines, and a number of different body styles to suit different tastes. You can get a coupe or convertible, FWD or AWD. The Eclipse isn’t a hardcore “driver’s car” like some of the cars that follow in this list, but it’ll be a hoot to drive and is not completely impractical.
I see this problem like the housing problem. People without houses want cheaper places to live. Everyone wants more housing but no one wants them to build it near them. Point is unchecked immigration would lead to a lot of issues that the people pushing for it won have to deal with so they are ok with it.
Someone eventually pays for it.It was, as the experts here knew, the 12V battery. Replaced on warranty, and all is well.Lingering issue is the battery died in 30 months and 8500 miles. If that an expected life, I hope there a source for non OEM batteries at some point. Near as I can tell, no one else sells a battery that fits/works in the i3.Otherwise, this is a great car.
I settled on an SE and I really like it so far. I wanted fun to drive and after test driving the Mazda 3, while I really enjoyed it, at the end of the day it was just okay. It wasn anything special to me, wasn fun to drive, but it really a great car.
That includes the price of tires and other consumables, which I have said several times I did not include because those are common. But if you want to do a mile per mile comparison of cost of a model 3 TCO go for it. If you take into account EVERYTHING I have done to the car, I am around $2500. That with Tires, coolant replacement, cabin air filters, brake fluid change, and I sure some other things I forgotten. No major “omg this maintenance is so expensive!” items. Hell the tires on our 3 will likely cost 2x what we paid to re tire our Prius, and will probably need to be done twice as often.
Into a sea of large, square and wallowy cars they floated a design so cutting edge it took the breath away. A small car that was wider than it was tall; 2 feet wider in fact, with a huge wrap around 3 piece rear window that gave it the appearance of a spaceship. The car had 70% more glass area than the average car in its class. And along with the futuristic styling came the promise of technology to match.
Thank you for your reply Nightstorm_NoS, my budget was 1/2 off that, and I know people are going to say that if you have a low budget you should steer clear from a BMW, electric or not. Every one in my neighborhood it seems has now taken delivery of their model 3 has they are all over the place. It a cool car but it is by no mean a city car, which is what I need. We have a ICE Suv for long range, for now. I have taken delivery of the i3 REX and I can say for sure, I would have been frustrated but the Bev version. Consider it cheating but the Rex extender has proven so far to be worth the extra $$. I coded the car and I have driven with 174 miles of range, light foot and taking advantage of steep downhills with battery Soc hold. I can charge or I can pump, having flexibility is sure sweet.
Favorite older car under $20,000Jump to Last Post 1 12 of 12 discussions (16 posts)I’m looking into buying myself another car, as my current car is starting to show its age. I’d like to buy an older car, at least 15 years old, but I still want something interesting and in good condition, not just some old beater.
I gotten lenses from eBay, KEH and local pawnshops and have had good luck. KEH is probably the most painless everything I gotten from them has been better than expected. eBay is a bit of a crapshoot since it more or less impossible to evaluate a lens based on a few pics you gotta dig through a ton of feedback and at some point, just hope for the best. At least at the pawnshop you can put your hands on the lens and test it out but selection is limited.
So, unless you are an exception, most of us don take road trips on the regular, on the rare(ish) occasion when we do, it not really much of a thing to stop for a bit to charge. And here another little secret. Remember when I said I would get 550+ miles on a tank in my Honda Accord on roadtrips? Well, how many hours of driving is that? If I were to average 70 MPH, that almost 7 hours of driving without stopping.
Madonna, the Material Girl Madonna 8/16/58 or Madonna Louise Ciccone, the real name of this controversial artist, is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the top 카지노사이트 selling female performer of all time. She lost her mother at the age of 5, and suffers the unresolved emotions of this tragedy. Madonna was a lonely young girl who got good grades in school, but always felt rebellious, like she was searching for something.
I searched old posts and came across a bunch with the BMW X3 and Diono seats in 3 across, but I need RF (rear facing) seat outboard for YDS. DH (dear husband) is looking at the X3 for his next vehicle, and I’m fairly certain there is nothing I can do to dissuade him. He needs to get a new car within the next month, realistically.
Jack got up from her bench and turned away from the railing and the view of the city below. She began scanning the crowd, throwing the ever present interface panel behind her like an over the shoulder camera. She immediately spotted a player not even 100 feet away on another bench, basking in the sun.
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.
Sorry I rambled on there a bit. I really just confused about how we got to where we are now. How did we get to the point where no one is having these discussions? The damn boat is sinking and instead of plugging the hole and working on boat version 3.4, we arguing about the color of the fucking wood.
