Anyone know where I could get my sweaty little paws on a BMW N63B40A? It’s the 4.0L version of the N63 twin turbo V8 used in the 550/650/750/X5/X6 that I think was specific to the chinese market. Does anyone know if it’s even possible to bring one of these into the US? What about just the short stroke crankshaft?
I really need to vent about work right now but I can’t because reasons. So instead, I hope you all have a wonderful day!
What does Oppo know about Thailand? Mrs. Snuze and I are going and meeting up with my Sister and Brother-In-Law over Thanksgiving. Were going to be in Phuket and Chiang Mai. The BIL and I are going to do some scuba diving. Other than that we're wide open for ideas.
One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn't belong...
I think I’m going to be in the market for a new, or new-ish, car here sooner or later. I took the Cruze to the mechanic today. I know it needs a turbo ($500) and brakes (have pads, $50-100 for rotors) and the associated labor. There’s also a new mystery clunk that it exhibits when accelerating from a stop. A common…
Cruze is about to shit a turbo. Now with more CLUNK when starting from a dead stop. Wth?
Ugh. I just need to vent about car related stuff.
I e-mailed 2 dealers about Camaros I was interested in. Both e-mailed me back; one wanted me to come in for a test drive that night, the other wanted me to call to discuss after I already said in my opening e-mail that e-mail is my preferred method of contact.
After getting Mrs. Snuze a new Terrain I find myself longing for a new car.
My new baby!
So the wife and I parked a deal on a new GMC Terrain. With current incentives, GM will knock an extra 2% off the purchase price if you finance through GM Financial. Their rate is 4.54%, but my credit union is offering 3.29% on new, and 3.59% on a current or previous model year vehicle with less than 7,500 miles. We…
Test Drive Review - Mid-Size SUV Edition!
Mrs. Snuze crashed her Lexus RX330 a couple weeks ago. Thankfully no one was hurt, but the Lexus was totaled. We got a pretty good chunk of change back from insurance, despite it being 14 years old. So we’re looking for a new vehicle, and as everyone knows, I’m a big GM guy. I fell in love with the new GMC Terrain. I…
I am thinking of buying this to replace the Cruze. It would be super handy around my house and a better fit for my life style these days. It’s a 4 cylinder, 6 speed manual, 2wd. Mileage is fair at 20/26, but I don’t drive as much as I used to (commute is about 28 miles a day, and I drive 60 to 100 on weekends) so I…
This is in my garage. I’m gonna do stuff with It!
Thanks all for the input on the Prius.
What’s Oppos take on a 2013 Prius with 43k miles? My friend found this to replace his ‘01 Camry, so I went and looked at it with him and it seemed like it was clean and in good shape. Its being sold by a large, reputable GM dealer near my place.
Been up to a whole lot of stuff since my last post. Here’s a photo album of highlights in case you are interested in my happenings.
This is now mine!!! And by that I mean it’s the bank’s, but they graciously lets me live in it, in exchange for a not insignificant portion of my income.
Well, I tried to not wait like 2 years between posts like I did the last time I semi-quit Oppo. Actually, quit isn’t the right word, I just went MIA because life got in the way. Anyways, the same thing has kind of happened but to a lesser extent. So I’m just trying to keep up appearances.
