The cargo space with all seats up is adequate in length, generous in height, but when you fold those back seats down, the xB becomes a tiny but useful van. I’ve crammed a full-size washing machine in there with room to spare. The interior volume can become an almost unobstructed cube of space in no time, and you can cram a genuine metric shitload of stuff in there. The interior trim, while never luxurious, is rugged and able to take the abuse of stuff-cramming without getting much worse looking, too.
4. E65 BMW 7 Series (LCI 2005-2008) – Probably the most unloved BMW of all time is the E65 7 Series. The E65 is Chris Bangle’s most criticized work, as it’s constantly mocked for its Bangle Butt . While the E65 was never a pretty car by any means, the LCI treatment that came along in 2005 certainly helped improve things. The LCI changed the entire front and rear ends, making them far more attractive than before. The headlights changed from a sort-of double bubble style to a much sleeker design. The grilles also grew a bit and became more curved than before. The bumper also changed a bit as well. At the rear, the 7 Series got a new bumper and far improved taillights. Gone was the center light bar than ran across the trunk lid and the taillights grew into the trunk. The interior changed only minutely, as the materials got an upgrade, the steering wheel changed and the climate controls got a bit of a refresh. Overall, the E65 7 Series went from something almost ugly to a car that could actually be called attractive with its LCI.
It’s important to use ELB health checks, not just Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) health checks. I’ve had issues where servers were still running, but the service on them had died and wouldn’t restart. The ELB would disconnect from that server because it was no longer serving up requests, but the AWS Auto Scaling group didn’t replace it because the server was still running. Eventually, all of the servers had the same issue and the service stopped working. Then I got an alert from Pingdom notifying me that the Web service was not working. The AWS Auto Scaling group continued to think all of the servers were fine — they didn’t detect that the actual Web service had died and failed to restart.
I wear two hats in my world: I am both an investigative attorney and physical security/communications expert. For the past forty years, I have worked investigations, both criminal and civil, first for government agencies and then private corporate clients. These cases have mainly involved major insurance fraud, heists, technology related crimes, exploits of communications systems, and other offenses, some terrible and others more mundane. I also work for many of the major lock manufacturers in the world and run a team that figures out how to compromise these locks in seconds, then fix them. My story was pretty much summed up by Wired Magazine in a feature article in 2009, when I was dubbed the “Keymaster.” I have always believed that full disclosure of security vulnerabilities in locks and related systems should be the rule, unless it involves national security, in order that the consumer, business sector and government understand potential risks. I solicit your input at firstname.lastname@example.org and your comments on my blog. My security website is www.security.org and my security blog is in.security.org

There are some nice touches. The Cross gets integrated indicators on the OVRMs, a rear spoiler and fancy diamond cut alloy wheels. As far as proportions are concerned, it’s marginally bigger. Compared to the Liva, the cross is 120 mm longer, 40mm taller and 45 mm wider. Step inside and you see piano black theme on the dashboard livening things up a bit. The good news is, it’s not dull or drab like the Liva cabin. Top end trim gets a 2-din audio system with USB, AUX-IN and Bluetooth. The steering is wrapped in leather and the top end Cross gets steering mounted audio controls.

The FJ Cruiser is one of the more recent models to be cut from Toyota’s lineup in the US. The retro SUV was based on the Land Cruiser FJ40—a rugged off-road machine that was first produced back in 1960. The FJ Cruiser debuted at the Detroit Auto Show in 2003 in its signature color, Voodoo Blue. It was equipped with a wipe-clean interior, three windshield wipers for maximum coverage, and rear-opening access doors.
The easiest explanation is the two petrol variants both have timing chains and have no scheduled replacement time, while the two diesel variants have timing belts and require changing every 150,000kms.
