I picked up an older Sigma 70 200/2.8 HSM (non OS/VR) for actual shooting. I always at 1/500 or higher so I don really need OS/VR and the 2.8 glass is heavy enough that the image in the viewfinder doesn jump around too much so I went older and cheaper on the lens when I realized the 70 300VR wasn going to cut it. If you can spend a bit more, you can get a newer version with OS and the newer ones should also get better wide open with each generation (there four or five versions of the Sigma 70 200/2.8). One weird quirk of my version is the AF locks up and doesn work in video mode but I never shoot video anyway with it because it too jumpy without VR.

With regard to the charging and range situations, it not a phenomenon unique to the Bolt, it applies to all other pure EVs. Charging and range limitations are really big negatives for a large number of car owners in this country. The USA is a huge place with a petroleum based car culture going back since almost the beginning of the automobile. While I would bet long road trips are infrequent for most car owners, their place in our psyche is larger than in real life. family vacations, emergency last minute dashes across hundreds (or even thousands) of miles, college travel (prospective college visits, move in day, spring break, et al), distant special events (concerts, sports, etc) are all disproportionately enshrined in our collective conscious compared to our daily commutes. pure EVs just can fill this need yet. they will get there with time, but until then, it is unreasonable to pretend it not a significant drawback. There is really no point in trying to convince someone to buy an EV by downplaying this fact. they are great second cars, and they are great cars for people who are fed up with big oil/climate change/high gas prices, and hence willing to adjust their lifestyle as necessary. for most everyone else, hybrids and ICE vehicles are a much safer bet, and a much easier sell.

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.

Maybe get an older Mazda Miata if you want a sports car. Those are seriously a ton of fun to drive. Take the difference and put it in a mutual fund of some kind and maybe go on a vacation before you enter the workforce. Experiences trump things anyway..

About a week ago I lost my card for food stamps. Got a new one. Cleaned my car, found my old one. Sooo today I went to the grocery store. I went to pay and realized I had my old card. The guy was so rude to me when I came back. I hate how much people change from when you walk up, to when you swipe your card. When I was married it was hard to see such a high percentage of our checks bfakn.club being devoured by insurance and taxes. I hear people talk about the same thing with the young women, how do they do that? In NC, I really don’t think it is possible but that women you were talking about is the stereotype everyone imagens when GA is diccused.

4 years ago I discovered Bogleheads and since then, I’ve followed the 3 fund passive index funds approach and turned all my attention to improving in my professional space. It turns my stomach thinking back how much more savings I would have today if had cashed out at the top or even if I just stuck to 3 fund index investing from the beginning. Today I still have over $100k in carried over cap losses I been writing off in my tax returns $3k at a time for many more years to come and I consider that tuition from the school of hard knocks and reminders of my hubris.

I’ve often thought there should be a minimum age requirement for police. At least 35 years old before they can carry a gun along with very strict, psychological high standards. I have scars older than 20 years. A 20 year old cannot make life and death decisions coupled with the wisdom that is only acquired through length of life. Citizen’s lives are in the balance: elderly, bystanders, children, people that are emotionally distraught, etc, and the person that holds their lives in the balance could have been watching cartoons and drinking Nestle Quick, 5 years prior. That to me is concerning,

Driving drunk is still illegal. I advocating for the same protections I would expect for any other crime. If the police suspect you have done something illegal they need to obtain a warrant to perform a search. You cannot be compelled to comply otherwise. It that simple. This is criminal law 101.

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.

Then I would get an awd suv/van that seats six as your second car, and trade out cars with him for the season. I just really don’t think it will add up to be worth having a special rwd bmw for summer, that you can’t even fit the whole family in if needed as a back up car.

Has the EGR valve been modified. Has the DPF been removed or bypassed.If it lowered, walk away. Has the Timing Belt been replaced and when.TBF, if you lasted this long in a 05 Megane and haven despaired at the faults with that car, an E90 is a nice car. Go simple though.

Non Mini dealerships won’t do a good job servicing your vehicle. I took my car in to a local repair shop to deal with a couple small issues, as well as get an oil change. They couldn’t fix the issues I had with my car, and missed a very critical issue that my dealership found months later. So don’t rely on a non Mini dealership/repair shop to take good car of your vehicle.

If this kind of expense is what you really want and it and doesn impact your retirement goals, then treat yourself.There always an in between option, too. Last year I bought a new Tesla. Quite a bit more expensive that the M3, but I would not have wanted a gas car in 2018 for that level of money.

Idea 3: Kids and Teens Can Edit Photos to Earn MoneyKids these days have the advantage of knowing how to use certain tools on the computer that adults don’t have the time or knowhow to use. For example, there are many different photo editing programs available, and many teens, preteens, and even younger children are widely using them. Kids can edit photos for friends and family members to earn quick cash.

The Audi TT coupe does not have enough driver leg support. I am 5′ 7″ and had gotten used to very comfortable bucket seats in the Infiniti G35. The TT seats are shorter and do not extend far enough forward to provide the appropriate level of thigh support. I’ve tried adjusting the seat in every possible position to no avail. I also spent hours Googling to see if I could find seat extenders that would work with the TT and could not find any.

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.

6. LimousineLimousines, or ‘limos’, are very luxurious sedans with long, enclosed bodies. Previously, this term was used for cars with an enclosed passenger area and an open topped driver’s seat, where the front of the roof elongated to provide shade for the driver. But things have changed a lot since then; now limos are fully covered from the outside, and they have highly luxurious compartments inside. Still, the compartment for the driver remains separate.

So, given that, I think ours is an excellent seat and great for ERF. It’s easy to install in every vehicle I’ve e ER tried. The no re thread harness is worth every penny. I love how padded and plush the cover is. I like that it has the good LATCH connectors and not the flimsy seeming ones like on many other seats. No, it isn’t the ideal ERF seat for some kids, but it’s a great seat for many others!

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

Which car do you have which car is your dream car?I own a bmw 3 series, e46 model. And i just love it. And my dream car is lamborghini murcielagoNow its your turn to tell me which car you own, and which car you would like to have, if you had money for it.

Thank you for pointing this out, had it fail on my last BMW right after warranty expired. The cost to fix was so bad it became the down payment on my model S at the time. Convinced my wife to dump her Jeep and we now left ICE behind never going back. Everyone says I’m crazy and instantly defends BMW when I mention this to them. It’s like they make their stuff designed to fail. I get so sick of hearing how their motor will last forever when it’s all the little things that’s around it that will cause you to go broke sans warranty.

“We clearly see that there is a growing middle class coming through in Africa and that there is a lot of interest in development and we assume that the middle class as we have seen it in South Africa is growing and there is purchasing power and there is a demand for our cars as well,” he told CNN’s Robyn Curnow.

I mainly like open wheelers, that what I really want to drive. With the risk of sounding like someone coming straight from Need to Speed, driving the Z4 almost feels like driving on ice. Not really, but I really don get the car. Even just a hint of trail braking and the rear comes around.

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.

They told me that I can install it with the seatbelt method and I just wouldn’t use the base. Apparently it’s just as safe but I’m not sure how comfortable I feel with that. I’m just disappointed because we did a lot of research before deciding on this seat and now I don’t know whether to just send it back.

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.
