That is how I feel when it comes to historical figures. People want to rationalize that someone like Lincoln could do something good yet still not be a good person just so they can keep him high up on the pedestal. It never occurred to people that the pedestal shouldn’t be there and that we should look at people for the good and bad they’ve done and let individuals come to their own conclusion about their character.7 years ago
I chime in here because I have extensive experience with both. The M235/240 has a superior powertrain. It smoother, less peaky, and revs more freely. Body control is also superior on the BMW through the corners, but it does ride harsher than the Benz due to the short wheelbase. The Benz has a hugely superior EPS system and turns in sharper, making it feel like a more aggressive car. The BMW is a lot more playful in the corner, though, where the Benz can be overly neutral.
The first system is the emissions standard. Germany, like most of the EU countries, is signatory to environmental treaties which compel them to reduce pollution in urban settings. Germany, unlike most of the EU countries, actually takes every treaty it signs seriously and has implemented a system to achieve this that it strictly follows. The ins and outs of this system are complex, but what you need to know is that the vehicle you are intending to purchase must be rated a ‘4’ if you intend to drive it within city limits. You will need to either have a certificate called an ‘Abgasuntersuchung’ (abbreviated to ‘AU’) delivered 온라인카지노 with the vehicle to establish compliance with this standard or have a qualified mechanic issue a new certificate for the vehicle. It is safe to assume that if the seller is hesitant to supply this certificate, he needs an emissions check of his own!
My wife’s cousin, she was spoiled as a child with wealthy parents and was never told no. She was raised believing she was a princess and now she is out of high school and weight has caught up with her in a big way. She is pushing 285 lbs but still thinks she is a princess and wears such revealing clothes. She won’t take hints, my wife has tried to invite her to work out with her but she thinks they are equal and she weighs considerably more than double.
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.
Honorable MentionVolkswagen GTI: The ultimate hot hatchback, this sporty version of the Golf barely missed the top five. The main thing holding it back is the higher maintenance cost of German vehicles. With solid turbocharged I4 and V6 engines, the GTI is truly a fantastic combination of hatchback practicality and light your hair on fire performance.
I don think they expect to sell a lot more BMWs to teens and 20 somethings, this is about creating an attachment to a brand for the future. In 5, 10, 15 years some of today esports audience will have the income to afford a BMW. The auto industry tends to have more brand loyalty and switching is less common, so someone that has the means to get their first “dream” car and picks a BMW is highly likely to buy a BMW again in the future.Another way of looking at it advertising towards a 25 year old potentially creates a customer for the next 50+ years. Advertising towards a 55 year old (that might already have strong brand loyalty elsewhere) only gets you a customer for the next 20+ years.In any case we don know the value of the sponsorship deal or what financial projections this was based on, so it impossible to conclude whether it a good investment.
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.
The 458 is also the first Ferrari to completely get rid of all stalks behind the steering wheel of the car and replace daily driver functions like indicating, turning the headlights on and off and the wiper blades into buttons on the steering wheel of the car a first for almost any mainstream manufacturer.
If anything I say get an E90 or E92 if you really want one but know that a lot of them probably will have been hooned in and not as reliable. Also don count your chickens before they hatch. Save up an emergency fund and all that and then work on getting a car.
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.

I try to avoid being in anyone blind spot as much as possible: never merge into a lane in a way that would put you in their blind spot, if the road isn crowded then switch lanes so you won be in their blind spot, speed up to be in their blind spot for as little time as possible, never count on anyone using their turn signals. I mean, how would I feel if somebody come runnin in the gym and bust me in my ass while I on the treadmill? Then I saw this snarling beast guy, and I noticed he had a tissue in his hand, and I realizing, y he not snarling, he sneezing. Y ain no real threat there. Then I saw little Tiffany. I thinking, y eight year old white girl, middle of the ghetto, bunch of monsters, this time of night with quantum physics books? She about to start some shit, Zed. She about eight years old, those books are WAY too advanced for her. If you ask me, I say she up to something.
They don have ABS or TC and they much faster, plus they harder to set up. If you only have a little experience in the Ferrari GT3, I would recommend buying the Merc or the Audi and racing those in IMSA GT3, then progress up the ranks into GTE. The experience you gain will be worth it.Real racing drivers don jump the gun on what they race, so we sim drivers shouldn either, right?Hmm.
The price for this stunning kit? How about $21,000! Only $1,000 more than the MK4 Roadster, which you’ll find is a bargain. Again, you’ll need a Ford engine, transmission, rear end, paint, wheels, tyres, battery, and fuel pump, so expect to pay $26,000 and up. Although if you are going to buy one, why not spend a little extra and build a 302 Boss Mustang engine? It would work so well in this!
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.
2 weeks ago I figure out it just a bad earth causing the slow crank and low voltage, so I fix that and it starts and runs mint. After about 15 minutes of driving the accessory pulley that been intermittently noisy completely shits the bed and starts screeching like a banshee. I don have time to fix it so I give up until next weekend.
There is an very audible rapid clicking noise that comes from the transfer case (approximately under the driver’s seat underneath the car) just after the engine is turned off. The best way to hear this is to open the driver’s side door when parked, turn off the engine and listen for the clicking noise (it may not happen EVERY time so try it a few times). The noise should only last about 1 2 seconds, see the video included here for an example of the sound.
What Is a Mini?So what is a Mini? It’s basically a small economy car that is known for its speed, extreme drifting, and unique look. There have been various types of Mini cars over the last several decades, but their popularity has surged because of their availability almost all over the world, their unique look, and their race car like quality.
I really am not a vain person. I’m not into status symbols just for the sake of looking like something I’m not. I don’t know fashion and I don’t go to all the hip clubs. But I do appreciate quality, and when I am blessed to be able to buy nice things for myself, then I feel I should have them. My Beemer has been one of those things.
The gents’ watches and a couple of women’s models in the Cellini line are hand wound. Since the Cellini collection is the simplest in terms of design and function of all the Rolex watches, the hand winding befits this classical image. I admit that I see an obvious paradox and somewhat of an incoherence in having a classically simple timepiece with a quartz movement, which is usually associated with cheaper watches or fakes. Still, we can be quite certain that Rolex does not manufacture lesser quality watches, so if for some reason you fancy having a quartz powered timepiece, you can be sure it will keep on ticking with accuracy and precision for many years to come.7 years ago
He said it happens all the time.Obviously, I be taking it to the shop on Thursday, so I get a definitive answer then (I suppose), but if it is the 12V battery (which makes some sense) I unclear on a few points.Would the battery be covered by the warranty? This was a CPO buy with a year and a half or so to run on the original warranty and an additional year on the Certified extension of that warranty.All the computers run on 12v DC and the DC to DC converter steps down the traction batteries high voltage to charge the 12v battery and run the computers while driving.
I meant that it won be a BMW. It would basically just be another generic electric vehicle and there are plenty of them out there already. There are plenty of things to make them a BMW, from the style of the exterior, to the quality of the materials for the interior, the fit and finish, the performance, the software for the infotainment etc. It pretty wild to say they can make distinctively BMW ICE cars but EVs would somehow be bland and generic. WTF
Alinghi had chosen to build a 101ft super lightweight catamaran, while BMW Oracle Racing opted for a 114ft trimaran with a giant solid wing mast in place of a more conventional sail. Both boats were impressive in their own rights and could sail at three times the wind speed, but BMW Oracle’s USA 17 particularly so, its wing taller than the total wingspan of a Boeing 747 at 223ft, the largest rigid wing ever built. Indeed, the technology on display propelled the event into completely new territory.
That still better than using a L1 charger though.With a proper L2 charger and wiring, you can expect to add about 25 miles for every hour you charge, making a full charge happen pretty damn quickly. It pretty much eliminates any charge related anxiety, since you can always plug it in for an hour or two and you got most of your range back for another drive.That said.
Recently, as my boyfriend’s lease term ended this month, we went in to talk to the finance manager about our trade in process (salesperson no longer works there). He said he would try and work on it and to come back. He set us up with a salesperson and we got nowhere. Basically, they screwed us. Even though we negotiated the price of my car before figuring we needed to combine lease payments, I am now stuck with a remaining payment of $825/mo for my car alone as my boyfriend had to trade in his car. Somewhere in the mix of paperwork it was calculated to have my boyfriends value over the 36mo instead of 15. Instead, we should have had a much lower required monthly payment and paid over that amount for the difference of my boyfriends car during the 15mo so when he turned his in my payment would have been $400.
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.
The battered British Prime Minister Theresa May, on the other hand, is working towards a postponement of the Brexit and wants to rule out an EU withdrawal without an agreement a so called hard Brexit in any case, British media report. In this way she wants to keep the reins of action in the face of resistance in parliament and in her own government in her hands.
