    N1DAS - the end of weapons grade torque

    Did anyone else get a message from Linkedin to wish Dave a Happy Birthday? Shouldn't there be a way to memorialize his account or something?

    Where are folks hanging out these days?

    Well for their car tech itch. I've found that a lot of the Mercedes forums have had slowed activity. The groups on Facebook have picked up in activity. But I know that not everyone is on Facebook. So where have folks gone to hang out?

    N1DAS - the end of weapons grade torque

    I think I saw on Facebook that Mr. Chill had mentioned he had one of David's cars and I made a mental note to ask how that happened. Now I know. It is indeed very sad. David and I both graduated from VWs to other diesels. He to BMW and me to Mercedes. We had some great conversations...

    Yep, sweet ride and Sheryl gets 35 mpg. I’m going to take the S since it’s the only car that is comfortable for me. I do want to check out the Model3 without a salesman yapping at me if possible.

    Stories when filling up at "gasoline station"

    Had my first "story" in a very long time. A Fedex driver asked if I knew that I was putting diesel in my car at the Cumberland Farms station in Framingham, MA. I was shocked. No one ever said anything to me when I would fill up my MB E320. My wife says she gets questioned almost every time...

    Mercedes E250 Bluetec

    Point 1, 99% of dealers are filled with A$$holes. Dealers make most of their money through the service department and need to fix as much as they can to keep their income stream flowing. Point 2, what region of the country do you live in and what are the conditions when you get the not working...

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    Clarity Went to a Honda Clarity drive event at the local mall. I was actually impressed with the thing. At 6'4" I could fit, probably because they don't have sunroofs. It drove decently and is now on my list for when I get my next car. I've been looking into plug in Hybrids for quite...

    Know Anyone Who might like a BMW 740Ld?

    Come on IBW, you know you want it... with the comfort seats :) Actually when I was shopping the S350, I really wanted one with the rear power seats and rear climate... until I sat my kids (aged 5 and 1) in the back and asked them what they thought. 5 minutes later everything was moving in...

    Know Anyone Who might like a BMW 740Ld?

    I was debating if I should post this in the forsale section, but I'm not selling anything. What I *have* been doing is following a Certified Pre-Owned 2015 BMW 740Ld on and the price has been dropping a lot. Its physically located at BMW of Peabody, MA...
