This will not protect the whole body of your car though, and it cannot stop corrosion if it has already started, which means it is best applied to brand new vehicles. The major risk to tar-based solutions is that if not applied properly, cracks may develop in the hardened coating over time and trap moisture within itself, leading to rust. Ziebart is one of the largest providers of this method of rust protection and charges approximately $150 per vehicle.
They’re far from alone in their neck of the woods. Rust Belt cities including Detroit (4.2% below average), Buffalo (2.7%), Pittsburgh (2.27% below), Rochester, Mich. (2.3%), Cincinnati (0.8%) and Syracuse (0.4%) all sell vehicles far below what the rest of the country pays. That’s not so much a function of economy as it is of density. Consider that Boston, D.C., Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Austin and San Antonio can all make the same claims. Used cars tend to be where the people are, and there are a whole lot of used vehicles in Ohio.
BMW Motorrad offers plenty of customization options for people planning to purchase the R nine T. The rear subframe can be replaced with a hump, while for solo driving experience, one can remove the rear frame. The upside-down telefork, alternative electrical components, rear axle with three mounting points for license plate, rear swing and optional akrapovic exhaust are other options. The new BMW R nine T will be brought in the country via the CBU route, and deliveries are likely to commence next month.
I’ve had a few compliments on the looks of my car, but opinions of the 5GT’s design have been mixed from the day it premiered . So during the time I’ve owned the 550i GT I’ve been trying to think of a way to better describe its crossover design. When it premiered it was instantly compared by some to the Mercedes-Benz CLS, but it was never meant to compete with the CLS. In fact the 5GT really has no direct competition, there really isn’t anything like it. So in my opinion, it’s a hatchback based on a long wheelbase 5 Series. Forget the word coupe, its coupe like roofline was only ever meant to contribute to the overall look. BMW didn’t design the 5GT to be a sleek four-door coupe.

Around two and a half hours away in the car is the stunning town of Montepulciano. Its name is synonymous with the wine which has been produced there since the 8th century, and its easy to see exactly why this spot has been inhabited for so long. A postcard worthy spot, Montepulciano’s medieval buildings are surrounded by idyllic vineyard-coated valleys and undulating hills. So gorgeous are its streets that it features in Twilight’s sequel, New Moon.

The suspension is completely bespoke, ditto much of the engine bar the capacity itself – M division has a lot of autonomy in the design and development of its cars. The driving ethos this time, besides how to enable the car to cope with an extra 110lb ft of torque, was to lower the weight. It comes in 80kg lighter than the old one. I bet you’re thinking the lion’s share of that comes from the smaller motor, but once you add in all the ancillaries (intercooler, turbos, pipework, etc), straight-six betters V8 by only 10kg. Instead, the weight savings are across the board: carbon propshaft saves 5kg, front seats are 7kg lighter (and, in a second snaky analogy, the seatback shape reminds me of a hooded cobra), rear bootlid saves about another 5kg, etc. And both are identical, don’t forget. Well, the saloon’s rear entrances mean it’s that bit heavier and has a fractionally more rear-biased weight distribution.
Along with these upgrades, and a black-engine spoiler and tinted windscreen, everything else is standard K1300S equipment, including the 1293cc, 16-valve inline four that produces 175 horsepower at 9,250 rpm and 103 ft/lb of torque at 8,250 rpm. This engine allows the sport tourer, which should weight around 500 lbs., to reach a top speed of 165 mph.
On affected vehicles, the headlamps could fill up with water or gather heavy condensation on the inside of the headlamp assembly. This could be due to excessive stress from the production process on the headlight assemblies from the bumper, as well as torsional force from installation.
