Sigh, bought an extra set of rims, brabus, for my 08 clk, 245/18 and 255/18. Either they fucked up the balancing or they sold me bent rims, as there is now a vibration between 90 and 120 km/h. Will get it sorted on Thursday at the earliest, and give them a call tomorrow as its too far away to stop by. It's just such a hassle, seems that honest good car shops are soooooo rare these days...
I used to work for a major importer here in Europe and am still friends with the owner and his father.To answer most of those questions:The supply is already stretched as it is. Its a public secret that the cubans doubled production between 98 and 01. Which is boxes from this period can contain up to a 1/3 of plugged cigars. Currently they have caught up in the quality department (to my mind the nicaraguans still do it better) but they simply do not have the capacity to...
Basically fasting every day. It refers to 16 hour fast, 8 hours to get the calories you need. In my case it sort of happened naturally, I only eat lunch and dinner, no snacks. It allows me to relatively go at it with the meals, so my love for t-bones and fatty foods goes unpunished so far.But, I still have some years to go before I hit forty, so I will only know whether this holds true when I become older..Fwiw, came back this morning from a week in Israel and will be...
Love it.
willing to vote for the devil unknown to avoid having the devil you know in office. This will surely end well with the eo being in vogue and all..
As long as hezbollah is busy supporting Assad and getting killed I don't think the Israeli's will do anything. Once Syria gets quiet again, and Hezbollah starts posturing again, yes.. Any bets on whether once the dust settles a Kurdish state exists?
I'm a week abroad every month, all over the world. This month Japan, the next Israel. Anyway, I have been struggling with the same, as do most regular travelers I found. What works for me is portion control and 16/8 when I'm back home, and fitting in working out every other day when possible. Oh, that and alcohol control, THAT is the big weight gainer in my book. With as many business dinners as we are having the above is hard enough as it is, diets would be impossible to...
Never seen you write anything about doing stuff yourself, so would start with changing the filters and oil, then brake pads etc.NOT with a repair, especially one that isn't diagnosed first.
If I could, I would. No warranty and no returns, and selling price would be symbolic.
The main reason is that gas is heavily taxed all over Europe. Small hatch = light = better mileage. A lot of us would be driving v8 and v12 sport sedans and suv's if gas wasn't around 8 usd a gallon around here. That's without road tax, which is usually weight based. For reference, my 1640 kg diesel coupe costs me 1700 euros a year in tax, can you imagine what a 2k plus truck will cost? Again favors the small hatch. Lastly, and Finn has railed against this many a time, we...
