As long as one side is legally allowed to lie and obfuscate...in search of the truth...FFS. And the other side isn’t legally allowed to lie to the officer and can be criminally charged for doing so, every (utterly useless) traffic stop should HAVE to be livestreamed. This doesn’t even get into the cops totally… Read more
While I generally agree with your sentiment, my steamdeck sleeps and wakes nearly instantly. The only thing that takes a second is the reconnection to the wifi. Push power button and select sleep. Off. Push power button again and it is instantly running and reconnecting to the network. Maybe you are letting the timer… Read more
Yup, heaters are brutal on range. My I3 claims about 25% loss in range but it is more. The defroster, which needs to stay on depending on the temp and how many people are in the car breathing, robs the car of at least 30% range. Seat heater plus cracked window works fine if it is just me but you’ll never convince… Read more
But will it run smoothly on a Steamdeck with an emulator?
It didn’t work with the I3. And the I3 is significantly quicker, likely more fun to drive, and probably better built because FCA/Stellantis. Granted the fiat will likely start at 60-70% of the little bmw’s price but still...there are better electrics on the market unless you really need a tiny city car, which rarely… Read more
Fair point, but it’s been 20 years since literally no one decided the TSA was a good idea. Gotta change with the times.
Orrr...and hear me out here, put all that garbage outside the screening area. Maybe even build a mall like setup. Given that malls are all dying as a standalone destination anyway, having one built into an area with a ton of foot traffic seems like a no-brainer. Could even make a much simpler screening system at the… Read more
Not sure how that applies. I don’t want a maverick hybrid, although there is nothing wrong with them. As for Elon, of course freedom of speech is a thing. I don’t want him censored or silenced, but the dude is a huge douche with no concept of how normal people live. He has the freedom of speech to be an assclown, and… Read more
You definitely are not alone. I have been shopping for an EV for a while now and picked up an I3 with the range extender as kind of happy middle-of-the-road solution until prices return to normal and I can convince the wife to let me buy a rivian. It is a small car but with the little generator and some software… Read more
And the great irony is none of the police departments ever had any money defunded. All of them had budget increases. But hey, their widdle feelings got hurt as we shoveled more money at them so they certainly shouldn’t have to do their jobs.
I’m doing pretty well with my BMW I3. It is tiny, but with a number of software hacks, pretty versatile. Not a lot of space but the rear seats fold flat and I can do a moderate costco run when i need to. Also, suicide rear doors are pretty handy.
One of them went bad at 17k miles. Granted that was at 7.5 years.
My 2013 Diavel had 6 less horsepower but more torque then the V4... And the Urban riding mode dropped horsepower to 100 and dialed up the traction control specifically for poor conditions including rain. Read more
So is this like the hybrid sienna in that there is a 2 year wait to get one and even then it’s a maybe?
So...he invented my BMW with the Rex? Because it has been done and done better since 2014. I get well over 40mpg gas, the motor adjusts for load and auto stops/starts. Also, I don’t have to leave it running overnight and the computer will simply maintain whatever battery level I set between 5% and 75%. Am I missing… Read more
I’m all for new technology and toys but why would anyone want to pay a monthly subscription after $700 up front for what is essentially a kindle glued to the front and rear bumper? Hell the kindles would be cheaper. Also, tell me these wont be stolen like crazy. The issue here is this is not a solution to a… Read more
