Less frequent maintenance. A Mini doesn’t need an oil change or regular maintenance done every few months like other cars. Instead, you can go two years before having the car checked out. With the standard three year warranty, you can take it to a Mini dealership for it’s first maintenance. However, I like to get my oil changed sooner somewhere else just so it can have clean oil.
Overall, I am happy with my purchase. I love the stylish bfakn.club exterior and it is incredibly fast and fun to drive. It is so compact, the car fits in any size parking space. I also love the incredible amount of storage it has in the trunk more than you would imagine.
Are people savage or primitive if they survive and thrive without electronics, cars, grocery stores?People have been considered and called less than if they survive and thrive without electronics, stores, cars, clothes, basically all of the things that are so called progress.

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.
According to news, Fed hiring freeze with new Trump admin is temporary so hopefully in a couple years when you ready and qualified to advance to a higher GS role, the hiring freeze would be over now. Plus I understand teacher income ramp up with seniority and increase in education. So your $90k gross is just starting point and will go even higher in future.
On board the station, a bored man in his mid thirties wearing a dress shirt with coffee stains on the hem sat drumming his fingers while watching a sports broadcast. He went to take a sip of coffee without looking. The panel in front of him flashed, chirping to indicate an incoming communication request. He choked on his coffee, spilling some more onto his shirt. “Who the hell?!”
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.
Most of the initial draft was is sourced from an editor written in the distinctive initials “MLC”. At the time, Motorsport Magazine enforced a policy to use initials in the fear that rival publishers poach their staff. We later learnt (and now confirmed) that “MLC” stands for “Michael Cotton” thanks to this archival list here.
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.
Oxygen (O2) Sensor DIY for VW 2.0 L EnginesHere is a way to take the cheap Bosch oxygen sensor 15718, made for Ford cars, and use it in your 2.0 Volkswagen engine. This is an old trick on the MKIII engine but has not been tried on MK4 Jetta, Golf, and GTI models. These sensors have been proven to work on BMW, VW, Saab, and a list of other cars: why not save money and use them on yours?
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.
November 23 2017EmailTwitterPinterestFacebookMartina Starke is happy. She has created beauty. “A great car has to look beautiful on the road,” she says. BMW’s head of brand vision and brand design has led the team behind the concept car for the new BMW Concept 8 Series a car that displays its lineage, and is at the same time boldly new. What it evinces most spectacularly is how to make a machine that has dynamism, while achieving a sumptuous degree of luxury and style. “The dynamic look comes from the form language,” she says. “You want a car that speaks to you directly when you see it for the first time.”
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 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.
The LVL2 charger also allows for more time in equalization or absorption charge mode once the battery is near full. This is better for the HV battery long term.If you not in the BMW i3 worldwide group on FB its worth your time. There is a ton of information there and it linked to in the sidebar.I hope this explanation was helpful, there are a few generally accepted theories included, but BMW hasn provided a better explanation so most folks agree on them.TLDR: It definitely your 12v battery.
Have you ever seen a Parking, Tow Away Zone sign? What do you think would happen if you parked your BMW there? Do you really think the property owner would bother to call BMW roadside assistance to tow your car away? Or would he just have Cletus drag it away like it does with every other car on the planet that he tows with the car in park and brakes on? Same thought experiment applies if somebody gets there BMW repo Same thought experiment applies if the police drag away an abandoned BMW. Same thought experiment applies if a BMW gets in an accident and is disabled/locked up. IOW, towing cars in park is a solved problem, and it happens all over the country hundreds, if not thousands, of times a day.
Mazda currently cannot meet the 2021 emission regulation in its home country of Japan. I am under the impression that they were hoping that this engine would allow them to do it, but so far only the base sedan with a stick manages to get under the mandated 96g co2 per km. they need their whole fleet to average that.
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. I find it really dangerous, and normally I tend to break and start driving really slow whenever I have one of those “stickers” behind me. does anyone know how much it would cost to paint a Peugeot 205 GTI?What car did you learn to drive in?by Renee S 6 years ago
OP, I am confused you think people are pretentious for driving a Lexus, BMW, or Mercedes. Basically they have a character flaw. I get that. Fine your opinion. But what I DONT get is how you are judging people by their material things but think that people that had those things are a snob. Why are YOU focusing on the material. THAT is so confusing to me.
BMW Transfer Case Actuator Motor Gear Problem in DetailSo what’s going on inside the transfer case actuator motor? In short, there is a nylon (ie: plasticky) gear inside the motor that is turned by a metal worm gear (a screw). Over time the nylon part gets worn down and stripped and does not turn any more. See the photos.
We thought about a crossover too but when you need as much room as I do, the size of crossovers becomes deceptive and you don get the cabin passenger space of a large sedan in a CUV until you start looking at the really big ones and my wife didn want something that big. The big sedans are also a bargain right now because no one wants them there more than a few pretty nice models to choose from and you can get killer deals on 1 3 year old models with hardly any miles on them.
14) Joe Biden. He riding on Obama coattails. His policy positions haven changed form 2008, and they weren even good in 2008. He slower and even more tone death now, and he wasn particularly fast before. He came off as absolutely condescending and sleazy with all the negative traits of a Boomer. He doesn even have the gravitas expected of a senior statesman anymore, everyone was easily able to force him onto the defensive and his whole platform seemed to be “I going to take credit for Obama things and double down on all the Obama things that didn work out”.
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.
“Now, where the hell am I?” The Pardinus main cameras showed a slowing shifting view of space. Apparently, she was resting against some large piece of debris. As it spun, it showed her a view of the debris field which now included many more objects than it previously had. Apparently the battle has ended without me.
The Verdict: The MR 2 is a surprisingly fuel efficient sports car with a mid engined layout and rear wheel drive performance. With a huge aftermarket following, it won’t be difficult to find parts and modifications to spec the car up to wherever you want it. It’s going to be hard to find a better handling car at this price point!
Gas Trips The money spent at gas stations. This includes gas expenses, air freshners, filling air. Now, these expenses are hard to track and I used mint to pull the information. The money spent at gas station might have been spent on chips and gum as well, and there is no way for me to know now. And so while the gas trip number may not be exact, but it is pretty close. I always use Premium 93 grade.
Time to crimp it all together! With the Ford plug all the wire colors match correctly, and the heating wires have no polarity so it does not matter how you connect those. White to white, black to black, and gray to gray. I used vise grips to crimp them and standard butt connectors like I listed above, but if you’re baller status and care about the car you’re working on, use the heat shrink connectors and a wire crimp tool.11 months ago
I would like to thank Michael Cotton for his reporting in motorsport for decades since the Ford GT first won Le Mans (that far!). Without his reporting, the huge bulk of the inital Group C research in this post will most likely be lost or hidden in magazines that we still can find. I remember the difficulties of tracking down a certain issue of Autosport magazine for accounts on what happened/announced durring the meeting in 1989. Only to find out that I got Autocar magazine instead. Yeah.
Make sure you aren on the gas and have the engine bouncing against the rev limiter when you clutch in to shift. But you also don have to wait for the revs to fall. Letting the clutch out while not on gas would match revs for you. When you are slotting the stick into the next gear, your right foot should be completely off the gas pedal, and clutch completely it. Let the clutch out swiftly but not dump it. Then as you let off the clutch, at the last 80% of of the way out start adding gas again. When done right and quickly, shift is smooth and doesn hurt the car.
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?)
Reitman, who has a neutral rating on Ferrari stock and a 12 month price target of $141, said he’s confident in the company’s new CEO Louis Camilleri. Previous management pushed volume of lower priced series cars at any cost while Camilleri has put an emphasis on higher end models like the upcoming mid engined SF90 Stradale plug in hybrid supercar, which is expected to be priced around 400,000 euros ($456,000).
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.
But it not 100% necessary if you a short distance commuter.Anything else you should worry about?Tires. They a little expensive (more than $150 per tire). Make sure the car you buy has a relatively fresh set.Range. This thing is going to get between 60 and 80 miles of range, but you won hit that 80 mark outside of perfect conditions (45mph, good weather, no AC/heat usage, eco++ mode).Realistic “safe” range under real world heavy AC/heat use is going to be closer to 60 miles.
