While you can have this quad-turbo behemoth in Europe, BMW hasn’t made up its mind whether it will sell a diesel-fueled X5 in the United States. Earlier this month, Alexander Schmuck, BMW Product & Technology Communications Manager, told us a final decision has not been taken yet. For the time being, the U.S.-spec 2019 X5 will be offered in xDrive 40i and xDrive 50i gasoline flavors, with a plug-in hybrid to arrive at some point in 2020 for the 2021 model year. The PHEV in question will likely be the recently revealed xDrive45e .

But Shelby was also a shrewd businessman, says Tracey Smith, executive vice president of Caroll Shelby International, who tells the story of how Shelby got his start building muscle cars for Ford and AC Motors. “He always wanted to build his own car, so he talked Ford into giving him some engines and AC Motors into selling him a chassis on credit. They also threw in some cash. As someone once said, ‘He could sell white blackbirds.’ And then, in a borrowed garage in Southern California, he put together the very first Shelby Cobra CSX 2000.”
In 2007 and 2008, the Toyota Land Cruiser was being sold in two different variants AX and AXG. However, ZX was not introduced at that time. Land Cruiser didn’t have Airmatic suspension until ZX was launched in 2009, and company equipped the car with an Airmatic suspension and also changed the engine of the car from 4.7L engine to 4.6L. The company trimmed down the engine, but the newly introduced was high compression one, its output was, and BHP was increased. The difference between the bhp of the old and new engine was around 70 bhp, which according to me is quite good.

Perhaps the trickiest part of making an engine-swapped MR2 run well is the coolant system. Scott put in a new Mishimoto radiator, but it still was going to be mounted in the front of the car, as is stock. That’s where cool air can flow into it. The problem is that the engine sits back behind the driver in the middle of the car, so there is some 17 feet of coolant lines in the teeny tiny MR2. Making sure all 17 feet of coolant lines are free of bubbles or leaks was quite a challenge. Scott installed a coolant overflow system from a Honda Civic just in case.
Apple’s iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have been out for a full week now, and the overwhelming majority of feedback we’ve seen out there has been positive. Yes, there are obviously complaints over some issues floating around out there, some more serious than others. The big one this time around seems to be issues users are having with reception and data speeds over both Wi-Fi and cellular connections. In some cases, the problems are very easy to fix and we explained how to do it in an earlier post . In other cases, that fix doesn’t work at all and your best bet is to contact Apple’s customer support. Beyond that, the bulk of the rest of the complaints we’ve seen focus on the fact that there are no new marquee features to be found on this year’s iPhones. We agree that this is Apple’s smallest “S” pgrade since the iPhone 3GS back in 2009, but we also explained why you’re being silly if you think it’s a huge problem for Apple or for the overwhelming majority of iPhone users.
