A lot of people don’t realize what an in-depth process design can be… It’s important to have all components of the bike work together in the big picture. The length of the forks combined with the size of the wheel set makes for the perfect stance. The kick- up tail section flows with the angle of the gas tank. The single-sided exhaust ranges back as far as the bodywork—which is exactly to the center of the rear hub. There are tons of details to be found, many only on a second, third or tenth look.
Under-bonnet modifications are modest for now. Jake’s running an A’PEXi air filter to feed the stock turbo, a Driftworks Supercool intercooler is employed to keep intake temperatures down, and boost has been upped by a HKS EVC controller. On the exhaust side, a HPI turbo elbow, de-cat and A’PEXi N1 system expel the spent gases. This little lot has boosted the JZX100’s power output up to circa 350bhp, but Jake’s after more in the near future. For now, the upgrades that have been done improve the Chaser’s handling, power and looks substantially over standard.
This looks like an intro price by BMW to capture the market from those undecided between Merc and BMW. They’ll probably recover the profits by not reducing the future CKD price too much. The E300 CBU already commands a RM60k premium over the 530i but can’t see Merc lowering the price much more than that when CKD kicks in. So probably the CKD 530i will be just RM20-30k cheaper only but they’ll up the specs a bit, and E300 RM60-70k cheaper. In any case BMW seems to come out the winner in the eyes of potential buyers.
I feel that his article is published straight from my heart. I love the way this article is well written. Perfectly said. I’ll never buy a local manufactured car, they are just cheating/ripping their consumers off to a level which is injustifiable. Suzuki Wagon r is arlund 11.7lakh (roughly $11, 700 USD)in the market today (including own) Thats alot of money!!. A car which doesnt come in automatic transmission and has rolldown windows… its 2017 for gods sake.you can get a Daihatsu Move in the same category for that price and the options given are in comparison to a Honda Civoc full option. I truly hope everybody boycotts local manufactured cars and opt for imported mainly so the local manufacter can feel the pinch and stop cheating their customers. They are only doing this because the pakistani people have no alternative option. But i guess their days are limited now.
Around 11.15 pm on 20 March, Jackson spotted the unsuspecting Caughman. Silently withdrawing his sword, he plunged his large knife into the innocent man, the blade slicing right through Caughman’s body. A witness to the murder stated that Caughman asked Jackson “What are you doing?” Jackson then stood up and walked off, his chest covered in Caughman’s blood. Caughman dragged his own dying body to a nearby police precinct and was later pronounced dead at Bellevue hospital.
We don’t see owners upgrading the brake system on their vehicles as much as we might like – specially as one of the first aftermarket additions. This gorgeous Black Sapphire Metallic 435i Gran Coupe was on the receiving end of a BMW M Performance brake system, further improving it’s overall performance. While not a track beast, the BMW 435i doesn’t lack power and it comes with impressive handling prowess – alongside the comfort levels that are cherished by their owners. In turn, this makes the 435i a great track-day vehicle that easily turns into a business four-door coupe on Monday mornings without problems.
The BMW 335d GT is always combined with all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmission. This combination contributes to the fact that the Gran Turismo with a double-loaded in-line cylinder, according to the factory, weighs 1,820 kilograms – making it the heaviest of all F34 LCI models. The performance promised by the factory shows that it still does not belong to the slow type: from 0 to 100 the power diesel accelerates in 4.9 seconds. And thus leaves the nominally still somewhat stronger 340i xDrive just behind.
A favourite for commercial use and popular as a fleet vehicle, the 16-seater Toyota Hiace microbus has been a Bangladeshi favourite since the late 80’s. With that kind of heritage and ever-present popularity, nothing else needs to be said of the Hiace’s abilities as a useful vehicle for transporting people, luggage and whatever else is needed across any distance. At the Motor Show, the Hiace received discounts of up to 1 lakh taka, price after discount standing at 37.50 lakh taka.

Introduced worldwide last year in October, the 2017 K 1600 GT now comes standard with BMW Motorrad’s Dynamic ESA, standing for electronic suspension adjustment. This semi-active suspension borrows technology from BMW’s M-series cars – the internal valves are shared with the M3 and M4 – and provides optimum suspension damping in all riding states and regardless of load.
