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.

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.
Instead of buying collision damage waiver insurance in an airport, motorists can take out an annual policy at home that offers full cover with an Irish insurance company. The AA has recently entered the market in the Republic and people taking out travel insurance with the company can add cover on to their policy at a fraction of the cost it could charge overseas.
“Thirty days from now you might not recognize the place,” VanGorder said. “We’re going to invest some money making it more something you might see in a dealership in the 2000s. There’s some appeal to the look of the place but GM is holding all their dealers to a higher standard and we want this to be a comfortable experience for everybody that comes into the dealership.”
Dean Lewis, the son of the original owners, saw an opportunity there, and converted it into the showplace it is today, where professional and Instagram photographers alike go to wander around click pictures of the mossy and metallic wonderland. It has more than 4,000 cars and trucks, making it one of the world’s largest automobile junk yards, if not the largest.
The bike appears to be completely new from the ground up, with a new engine, and the final drive swapped to the left side of the bike from the right side drive of the F800GS. The chassis is new, as is the swingarm, both made from aluminium now. Overall, the styling hasn’t strayed too far from the existing BMW adventure models , but the new bike gets beefier lines, yet manages to look slimmer than the outgoing model. Spy shots show two different variants – one with cast wheels and the other with spoked wheels. So, it’s quite possible that BMW will be offering the new F-series in two versions – a more road-oriented version with 19-inch front wheel and cast alloy wheels, and an adventure version with wire-spoke wheels and a 21-inch front wheel size.

The fourth generation of the BMW 7-Series , known as the E65, was launched for the 2002 model year and was stuffed full of Bavarian-style luxury and cutting-edge electronics. The long-wheelbase version, known as the Li, was for the serious high-rollers who wanted to make a big impression as they rolled up to the board meeting or casino, and the list price started at $73,300 (close to 100 grand in 2017 bucks). As so often happens with high-end European sedans, sadly, this one wasn't coddled once the new-car smell wore off, and today it parks among the Daewoo Leganzas and Mitsubishi Galants of the IMPORTS section at a Denver self-service wrecking yard.
“The first arriving units encountered heavy fire in the scrap yard area. There were multiple motor vehicles stacked on top of one another which is normal operating procedure here, and one of them caught fire which spread through multiple vehicles,” said Battalion Chief Anthony Fabrizi of the Milford Fire Department.
The engine management light is one of the number of warning lights that’s set within the instrument cluster on your car’s dashboard. You’re most likely to see it when you turn your ignition on, as all the dashboard lights come on and quickly go off again as your car starts up. The light is connected to your car’s engine control unit (ECU), and is the first indicator of issues with the engine’s electronic ‘brain’. This controls things such as the fuel and air mixture and the ignition timing to help your car’s engine run smoothly.
