I have chosen a ‘Flex Fuel’ option, meaning I can return the car without having to fill up the tank. This is the best choice, Enrique assures me. All he needs is a €53 deposit – the cost of the full tank. If there is fuel left when I return the car Goldcar will refund the difference. ‘The emptier the better in fact,’ he adds.
You might want to visit a professional printer to get these made correctly. Basically, two of the files are the front (“Cards Against Muggles”) sides of the cards in black and white. The other file is all of the various question/answer cards. If you print at home you’ll need to print out the title sides first, flip those pieces of paper over, then print out the answer cards. It’d also be wise to use paper that is thicker than your average printer paper so that they feel like regular CAH cards.
BMW plans to launch Connected+ in 19 countries, starting with the United States, but Canadian drivers will have to wait till the middle of next year to get it. The car maker says this is because Canada was one of the first markets in which it added wireless connectivity via its ConnectedDrive system back in the early 2000s. The backend software is therefore an older version that needs to updated.

With the influx of Japanese automobiles especially of 660cc engine capacity, the availability (or lack thereof) of their auto parts in the local market has become a real issue. The owners of these cars face three familiar problems when looking for auto parts – the parts are either not available and if available, they are not genuine. And in case, if you happen to find a genuine part, it is likely that is being sold at an exorbitant price. In short, while these cars provide a smooth and safe drive to their owners, they also give them heartache when in need of auto parts.
Ok, it might not be as beautiful as the 507 roadster from the late 1950s, but then again the series is not called the “Most Beautiful Concepts We Forgot.” Billed as being a “masterpiece in mechatronic design,” the Z22 had just about the same footprint as a 3 Series (E46), but with the wheelbase of a 7 Series (E38). How was that possible? Just look at those tiny front and rear overhangs. Since the distance between the two axles was similar to BMW’s fullsize sedan, it goes without saying the amount of available room inside the cabin was comparable to the flagship. At the same time, the concept was about one third lighter than a 528i Touring (E39).
Special ordered black 20” multi spoke ALPINA wheels were also fitted to the stylish and sporty touring model which has recently been updated by the Buchloe-based automaker. The revised straight-six 3.0 litre engine now delivers even more power and ensures thrilling performance. If requested, impressive 324 kW (440 PS) and a maximum torque of 660 Nm at 3.000 U/min are available – In fact 600 Nm of torque is available across a wide range between 2000 rpm and 5000 rpm. Coupled to the excellent ZF 8-Speed Sport-Automatic Transmission it propels the BMW ALPINA B3 S Bi-Turbo in just 4.3 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and on to a top speed of 306 km/h for the Saloon respectively 303 km/h for the Touring. BMW Efficient Dynamics technologies such as Auto Start Stop and Sailing contribute to an exemplary fuel consumption of only 7.9 – 8.1 l/100 km and 180 – 185 g/km CO2 combined measured to ECE norm.
Detractors will point to its original lack of Porsches (thanks, Electronic Arts), slightly less expansive lineup of tracks, and overall novice-friendly setup, but compare it to its contemporaries— Gran Turismo 5 and 6 may have featured more cars, but a perfunctory damage system plus the obnoxious recycling of ugly car models from the PS2 days with no cockpit view made for a less polished experience compared to Forza 4. That in turn makes Forza’s obsession with rendering even the smallest details on its cars all the more impressive. It was also the last game in the series to try and offer an all-encompassing simulation experience, with zany cars like the Pontiac Aztec and GMC Vandura sharing the screen with glorious hypercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari. Subsequent entries have focused more on professional racing, leaving Forza Motorsport 4 as the ultimate all-around car game.
If you’ve ever found yourself running past scores of unfamiliar vans, jeeps, and SUVs while searching frantically for the parking spot you were sure you’d remember, you’re definitely not alone. Unless you’re one of the lucky souls blessed with a photographic memory, finding your parked car in a crowded, homogeneous lot isn’t easy. Thankfully, technology has the answer. The best “find my car” apps for iOS and Android devices combine GPS , Wi-Fi, and cellular triangulation to pinpoint the location of your ride. They’re not always the most accurate — and some require more fiddling than others — but they can be a godsend in the right situation.
