bmw m4 key case Q&A Review

What's the deal with sports cars?

Never has the choice of sports cars at the affordable end of the spectrum been greater, each offering thrills to match, and in some cases exceed, more expensive peers. It's not all about brake horsepower at this end of the market: most of the cars in our top 10 list put driving bliss ahead of raw, straight-out performance. But we guarantee each will put a huge smile on your face. 1. Alpine A110 Every significant component part of the Alpine A110 driving experience – from the rasping turbocharged torque of its engine to the hilariously immersive poise and panache of its handling – is all about the F word: fun. It brings to life journeys and roads that rivals wouldn’t, and has handling for which your affection can only grow as you explore it more closely. Anatomise the car and you won’t find too many mechanical ingredients or areas you could genuinely call exceptional; but put them all together and you can’t help but conclude that the A110 is a much greater car – and achievement - than the sum of its parts would suggest. Rarely does a car come along so devoted to driver involvement, and so singularly effective at it, even among affordable sports cars; the last time was probably the Toyota GT86 in 2012, a car to which we also gave a five-star recommendation for its supreme fitness to the purpose of sucking the marrow out of every mile. The A110 is quicker, more agile, more effusive and ultimately even more fun. It deserves no less of an ovation. 2. Porsche 718 Cayman Even with its new downsized four-cylinder turbo petrol engine, the 718 Cayman is by some distance the most complete sports coupé on sale – and easily talented enough in the handling department to overcome slight misgivings about the way the crank is now turned. In the long-term, memory of its past power source will eventually fade. The manifest and numerous qualities of the 718 will not. 3. BMW M2 Competition The new BMW M2 Competition is now the only M2 model you can buy here in Britain, and that’s certainly no bad thing. The previous model’s single-turbo six-cylinder unit has been swapped out for the twin-turbocharged straight-six (albeit in slightly detuned form) from the larger M3 and M4 models, while a handful of tweaks to the chassis and suspension mean it’s now even sharper and more controlled on battered UK roads than ever before. Weighty steering allows you to point the car’s nose into a corner with confidence, and it’s supremely adjustably on the throttle, too.The new M2 Competition is so good, in fact, that we think it’s one of the best driver’s cars BMW currently makes. You won’t be disappointed. 4. Mazda MX-5 There isn’t a single area in which this new Mazda MX-5 fails to surpass its predecessor. It’s shorter, lighter, more spacious and better laid out. It’s sharper-looking but still disarming and distinctive. It’s faster, more frugal and even more vibrant and engaging to drive. In 2018, Mazda facelifted its iconic roadster, with the headline change being a 23bhp power hike for its fiesty 2.0-litre engine. A steering column that also now adjusts for reach was also introduced. All that and yet the MX-5 is still every inch the same zesty and inimitable car that it was. Its character hasn’t altered at all. Nothing on this list offers a better pounds-per-smile rating. 5. Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ It is necessary not only to accept a few compromises with the co-developed Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ but, as with a Caterham Seven, positively embrace them. They make the car what it is. They’re visible, audible, tangible characteristics that serve to remind you that you’re driving the keenest, sharpest, most enjoyable and loveable small sports car for a generation. Importantly, it's an accessible sports car - one which won't break the bank to run either - and it's a refreshing alternative to the likes of the Mazda MX-5 for those seeking lightweight rear-drive fun. 6. BMW Z4 M40i We’re yet to drive the new Z4 on UK roads, but our first taste of it in Portugal suggested that the Z4 is still more of a fast, open-top cruiser than an out-an-out sports car. That said, there’s still a reasonably exciting driver’s car on offer here. The 3.0-litre six-cylinder motor lends the drop-top BMW some serious pace - it’ll hit 60mph from a standstill in less than five seconds - and its body control and rear-drive balance are equally as appealing. 7. Lotus Elise Sport The Lotus Elise is utterly brilliant to drive if you’re in the mood. It has one of the world’s best-handling chassis and exquisite steering. But this Lotus is old and could be seen as expensive if you like to judge your cars objectively. Yet many of the Elise’s drawbacks can be overlooked when you’re in the middle of a red-mist moment. At its core, the Elise is still magnificent, and it gets better the sportier the Elise is. 8. Audi TT RS This second-generation TT RS feels like the response of a company that’s defended a popular car for decades against claims that the TT has all the style and none of the substance to be taken seriously by really keen drivers. It feels that way because you simply have to take any sports car with an engine this strong, capable of genuine supercar-baiting pace, very seriously indeed. Ultimately, the TT RS doesn’t set the vivid excitement of its powertrain off against enough handling balance or driver involvement to make it feel fully formed as a sports car, which is why it lags behind rivals. 9. Ford Mustang The sensible thing to do would be to buy an Audi TT or a BMW 2 Series Coupé, wouldn’t it? And if you did, that would be a huge shame. Yes, this car does have significant drawbacks in the UK. Yes, you have to think twice about where you’re going to park it in town, plus factor in the far greater number of visits to fuel pumps than your peers, but no other car at this price – or several price points higher – can do what the Mustang does. Its powertrain brings with it an appeal that engines with fewer cylinders simply cannot, and its inherent chassis balance is absolutely peachy. Sensible be damned. 10. Abarth 124 Spider The Abarth 124 Spider is what you might call ‘a bit of a giggle’. Most Mazda MX-5 owners would have a lot of fun in one for an afternoon, we suspect, but then would probably be quite happy to swap their car keys back. Compared with the Japanese sporting icon from which it is sprung, it is a little noisy, harsh, gauche and trying. But the Abarth 124 Spider is far from a failure. Abarth’s mission with this car must rightly have been to claim territory that the Mazda has never managed to secure: to convince petrolheads that a cloth-topped two-seater could feel as focused and hardcore as a really specialised £30,000 hot hatchback. In that mission, the Abarth does remarkably well.

How do people afford to live in Dubai?

They key to surviving in and making most out of Dubai is ,SETTING YOUR EXPECTATIONS RIGHT! Now what does that mean? Let me explain. Dubai indeed is like no other city in the world. I have lived there for 3 years and I am now living in Montreal. My colleagues are now spread out all over the globe in Australia, Switzerland, Cyprus and S’pore. On our group chats, each one of us talks about the life in Dubai at least once every week. Whilst at the same time, internet posts are flooded with people talking ill of the country, people who are facing legal actions against them or are behind bars, people without passports etc. etc. etc. So why is that people have such extreme views about Dubai? I will try to explain them. 1.Law: ,UAE follows very strict laws and are mostly based on Sharia. What does that mean for you is that if you break these laws, you’ll be tried and most often than not, you will be charged guilty. Now you must be thinking ,I am no criminal so I have nothing to be scared about,. Hold on my friend. There are activities which we cant even consider crime in developed countries, but they are criminal offences in Dubai. For e.g. criticizing the Government, rulers or their families or complaining about Emirates/KSA in general, watching porn, living-in without getting married, bouncing of a cheque (even when it might be because of a wrong signature etc.), abusing an Emirati local etc. etc.. The most absurd is when a women who’s unfortunately been raped, is accused and punished for adultery. Even for business cases, trials are usually held in Sharia courts. So how to survive? Simply abide by the laws. There are work around for most of the laws. UAE Police are not raiding homes to see who is watching porn or for unmarried couples living in. But you need to be careful. Try not to attract attention towards yourself. If you’re living in then don’t brag about it, watch porn but you really do not need to share it (good to be selfish at times). Keeping alcohol at home with no license or you happen to be a muslim (in which case you cannot legally buy alcohol), then try and live in western neighborhoods, dont annoy your neighbors etc etc. Simply ensure no one reports about you to the cops, in which case the poor souls will need to visit you and if find you with any of the above, they will be forced to take an action and you’re screwed. Try and ask why you’re in Dubai and the answer is mostly to earn money. Dubai is not giving you a PR or citizenship and nor are they asking you to pay tax. they are letting you earn more in an year than you can in your own country over say 2–3 years. In return, t,hey simply want you to enjoy the good times, turn a blind eye to human rights violations or other first world problems. ,Personally, I have done quite a few of the above and know many others who are doing it too. But as i mentioned respect the law and be smart,. 2. Stay away from Debt:, Dubai is like a wonderland. The economy is a consumption driven economy and as such it tries every possible trick in the book to induce consumer spending. From big sales to offers to the latest products (electronics, home goods, apparel, cars etc.). But the biggest evil of all is CREDIT CARD. Dubai banks are more than liberal when it come to offering credit and can allow credit limits of 2–3 times your pay. And mind you Dubai’s wealth is first generation wealth. Most of the Emiratis have seen money/opulence for the first time in their lives. From living as bedouins in the desert to living in villas on man-made islands and world’s tallest building. And if you have read articles comparing new rich from inherited wealth rich, you know the new rich love to show-off. They want to tell the world that ,we have arrived. Now add to this many of the western expats, who trust me have quite an unfair advantage in the job market because of their skin color/passport and generally get better jobs with higher pay when compared to any Asian/ South Asian who might be more qualified or experienced than him/her. And i am totally cool with that. But where things getting ugly is when many of those western expats who might actually be minimum wage earners or maybe doing routine jobs in cafes, grocery, security etc. in their home countries are given managerial and director roles and yes a lot of tax-free money (this however is changing slowly). And among this group there are some who appreciate this opportunity and strive to save as much as possible to be able to have their own home in their home countries, pay-off their debt etc. putting this to good use. However, there is another lot who knowing this is a short sweet ride, like the new rich go out and spend it all. So why the long above background? Thing is you will find a lot of youngsters in Dubai in fancy cars (special edition mercs, convertibles, mustangs , Porsche), wearing expensive brands, chilling at the best bars/cafes, carrying the latest phones/gadgets etc. Now, this might lead to peer pressure to match it all. Esp. when you see other young expats living the high life. But in reality they are mostly living paychek-paycheck. Their credit cards are usually maxxed out and oh yes they have multiple cards. usually have no savings and are riding till the tide lasts. the Emiratis are usually better off as they are all citizens and the govt usually takes care of them - housing, schooling, utilities, foreing education, healthcare everything is free. Plus anyone doing business in the mainland need to be a 51%-49% partnership with a local (in their favour). So its very important you know why you came to Dubai. If you came to just have the best few years of your life then by all means spend as much you can but take ,no DEBT,. However, if its to secure a good future, then live in your means. No need to live in Marina or Downtown. Check out other areas. You dont have to drive the latest BMW/Merc but a honda or toyota is more than apt and has great resale value. So being debt-free in Dubai is essential for surviving, Mind you, Dubai hires and fires and is an employer friendly country where you can be fired any fine day without a reason (unless you’re an Emirati). Also you get to stay only for one month in Dubai to get a job. So having a debt can be a risky proposition. ,AVOID CREDIT CARD DEBT AT ALL COSTS. 3. Common sense:, Yes common sense is not that common. As mentioned earlier, Dubai’s rise has been meteoric and their policies are still evolving. They are still to a large extent racist ( mind you this racism is usually more corporate than in daily life situations). Also, as pointed earlier, there is a white supremacy here esp Brits. Now, Dubai is also fairly easy to immigrate to and hence a lot of people from SE Asia and the subcontinent flock to Dubai in hopes of touching gold. But that is far from the truth. Dubai surely has first-world infrastructure and amenities but it lacks in the key quality which makes Europe, Canada etc. countries ‘first world’ - Human rights, equality, freedom of speech and social security. Snd upo many a times these poor souls believe the recruitment agents and take up a job and e having to give their passports, salaries are not paid etc etc. And if someone is strong enough to got to labor courts, in 10/10 of cases the employer would win. So before you take up a job, ensure its for a MNCs as they usually have global HR policies etc. or with reputed companies. Do a background search and see if they are genuine. If anyone asks you to pay for your visa fees, wishes to keep your passports then just run away. And also please remember, Dubai is no fool. Its not they are going to offer you free stupid money unless you happen to be British. it surely would be more than your home country, but anything too good be true is not really possible. Esp for corporate jobs like Big4s, MNC banks etc. They do a premium to be in Dubai but the advantage is mostly saving in tax and a higher designation. There are a lot of scams in Dubai from recruitment, to ponzi schemes to housing etc. ,PLEASE APPLY YOUR COMMON SENSE A bad job, not controlling spending and taking on severe debt and breaking laws are key pitfalls for UAE residents. I have personally seen many people get entangled in these vicious circles - my friends and family and mind you they were all smart educated people. But again FIRST GENERATION WEALTH can be blinding. And personally I am also to fault. I had all the opportunity to save a lot of money as well, but i ended up blowing most of it on fancy cars, five star dinners and stay-cations, big ass TVs and crazy crazy parties. But then again that was my plan from the start. I didn't go to Dubai to save but just to live life large and i did that. However, I have now matured and especially living in Montreal has shown that happiness and being content is more than how many gadgets/cars you own. I am no more attracted to latest phones and i balk at buying a $1000 phone now while in Dubai i wouldn't hink twice about it. Do I miss Duabi and intend on going back? Yes of course. The life (materialistic) that a good white collar employee can live in Dubai cannot be dreamt of in western countries (comparing same position in the same company in the same role). But for me this time around, things are gonna be different. I might be content with a Honda Accord or a 5 year old 5-series than leasing out a convertible M4. Expensive dinners and brunches will be reserved for special occasions. And most importantly, I will try and spend as much as I can towards travelling than towards useless goods. Thats my only regret from my previous visit. I did not travel much. And trust me with the money white collars make in Dubai, the world’s your oyster. Europe feels super cheap to travel and live in. Note: I have mentioned mostly from an employee point of view as thats what people usually go there for. Business have their own challenges and its for a different post altogether.

What's a better choice between Audi, BMW and Mercedes? I currently drive a 2002 BMW 3 Series and am looking to upgrade. My budget is around $30k.

I agree with the general sentiment here, which seems to put Audi a distant 3rd in this race. The key reason is that the company that makes them mainly sells cheap cars - Audis are truly very expensive Volkswagens. I’ve driven several, and in every case they seem to be an odd combination of plush and sort-of-sporty. Meaning that they offer a powerful A6 if you pay for the bigger engine, and the interior is superb, but it drives like a big car and has lots of body roll like American tuna boats used to. The A4 is a Jetta at its core, and there’s just no way to polish that turd enough to make it worth the 40% premium. Between the Mercedes line and BMW, I think the BMW is better. Firstly, in the $30k range, a 2–3 year-old 3-series 4 door with a mid-range engine is going to comfortably hold 4 adults and be fun to drive. The direct competitor from Mercedes, the C-class, is a smaller car, isn’t as fun to drive, and offers less power for the money. To get into the next class of car, the 5-series or an E Class, you are looking at older cars and the reliability is more important. Many would expect me to say that Mercedes pulls ahead of BMW in this category, but that just isn’t true today. Mercedes’ reputation for reliability is from 1970’s cars like the 240D, many of which drove a million Km before they needed any major work. But modern models are no better than their competition, which by the way is excellent. So I still recommend the BMW as the sportier, more comfortable car in this class. In general, Mercedes vehicles run 10–15% higher in price than their BMW equivalents, including used cars. But if you’re willing to pay that to say “I own a Mercedes,” more power to you. When I test drove Mercs (and drove a couple of friends’ cars) the main impression I got was that they were great straight ahead cars, but weren’t as poised in corners as BMWs. This really separates BMWs from Mercs. The BMW is much more at home going around a track, or driving hard on a curvy road. I don’t recommend Porsches (for various reasons) but I have to admit that they are better still than the BMWs in this regard. The 911, for instance, will beat the M4 on a track even though it has less power. Happy hunting! Let us know what you end up with.

Are Ford Mustangs reliable cars?

YES, ford mustang reliable car Strong in other disciplines, too How did the Mustang do around a tight autocross? I took it to one, and again walked away high thanks to its tight turn-in ability, not to mention how easily the rear swung around just by goosing the throttle. Eventually, the autocross turned into a drift course, where the Mustang's power and balanced handling character were an absolute riot to play with. It was so, so easy to get things sideways with total control. Sadly, I didn't get to a drag strip to run the car through the complete gamut of motorsports disciplines. That's a shame because the Mustang's standard line-lock feature could have helped me turn in marginally more respectable quarter-mile times with warm rear rubber. However, and only in the name of thorough testing, I did activate line lock once or twice and can report that the Michelin produce a killer smoke show and are indeed sticky after. High street cred Away from the race track, the was up for any task. With its suspension in Normal, damping for regular commutes around town were plenty compliant, and a roundtrip jog from Detroit to Chicago ferrying two adults and two four-legged friends was handled without complaint. ford’s familiar sync 3 system took care of infotainment functions with a responsive 8-inch touchscreen to control navigation, a respectable 12-speaker Shaker Pro audio system, 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth and both apple CarPlay and menus aren't the most visually compelling but were intuitive to work through. Visually, some Roadshow staffers couldn't get behind the 2018 model year facelift and called the new nose droopy in comparison to the previously sleek and sporty front end. Inside, however, we all loved the vibrant red seats, especially against the grey exterior. Even one McDonald's drive-thru worker had a number of nice things to say as she passed two Happy Meals through the window. Performance value champ After handing over the keys to the Mustang following a couple of action-packed months, I mostly look back on our time together with fond memories. They romp around GingerMan, using line lock to light up the tires and drifting around the autocross -- all of these things make me smile. But for all of those cases, I wish our car had the manual transmission. The automatic, well, sucked. That aside, the Mustang continues to be one of the best bang-for-your-buck performance values on the market today, especially considering its $35,000 starting price. Stepping up to the Premium trim for more features and tacking on the Performance Package along with a few more options turns it into a $50,000 car, which doesn't actually seem that crazy. In fact, it's still a pretty good deal for a car that's this rewarding to drive. Line it up against A BMW M4, and I'll take the Mustang every time.

What should you do if someone puts a gun to your head?

On a 12pm Tuesday, I got robbed by 3 people in my bedroom. This incident helped me see life in a completely different way. TLDR:, I have no idea what to do when a gun is pointed at your head, but this is what I did. A year ago, I was living with my cousin near Hunter's Point. I was still sleeping at 12pm. Amazon called while I was half awake, and said something about my servers. Then I settled that, and I hang up, like nothing was wrong. 10 minutes later, I heard a huge, loud bang. At first, I thought, "What was going on?" My cousin must be having a fight with her boyfriend. Then I looked up, and I saw that 3 African American men were pointing handguns at me. My bedroom door was completely knocked down. One of the men (the leader) told me to lay face down on my bed, hands spread apart. He said that if I do exactly as he says, nobody will get hurt. He then walked over towards me and pointed the gun to my head (3 feet away). My reaction was, "OK, so I'm getting robbed. This is how it is. I'm not a kid anymore. Play it cool, just like the movies. It's OK." Awkwardly, I was not scared, afraid, or anything. My heart was pounding fast, but I was still very clear and in control. After the leader told me to lay down, the 2 other guys came in my bedroom and started throwing stuff around, looking for things. The leader asked me, "Where is your wallet?" I told him my wallet was on my coffee table. He went to find my wallet, but he couldn't find it. Then he said (in a very strong, stable voice), "Where is the wallet? I do not see it." It wasn't loud or anything. It was just very stable. I told him the wallet was near my computer desk, and the 2 guys finally found it. Then, they asked me if I had any other cash on me. At that time, my net worth was $2500 dollars (I came to San Francisco all alone to bootstrap my startup, and my family was in Missouri). I had $1500 in the bank, and another $1000 at home because of contractor work (I was paid under-the-table). "Should I tell him where the $1000 is?" That thought was racing through my head, but I knew I only had 1 second to answer. I didn't have much time. $1000 meant a lot to me at that time. But then again, these people are probably poor and aren't expecting so much money. It was a hard decision to make. My reflexes kicked in, and within 500 milliseconds, I made my decision carefully, "Yes, my cash is behind my computer case, in an envelope." I figured that I could give half my net worth over in exchange for my life. I didn't want to risk it. So they found the money. They counted it, and they told the leader, "Holy fuck, there's a thousand dollars in here!" And they continued searching for things. The leader asked if I had any jewelry or expensive items. I told them I don't. While the leader was still pointing the gun at me, the other 2 guys went out of my room and started searching my cousin's room. The other guys started debating whether they should take the Wii and flat screen TV. I heard one of them say, "dude my girlfriend wants to play video games take the Wii." After they were done packing a lot of stuff, I figured they were pretty happy. Then this is what hit me: I had stuff on my computer that I didn't back up last night. This was crucial to my work and my startup. So I negotiated with them. I said, quote, "Hey, please, don't take my computer. Please, I'm just a student, and I have a lot of homework in there." (Yea, I'm not a student, but whatever, I'm Asian and I look like a nerd.) The leader then thought about it, and said, "Alright, we won't take your computer. Don't worry. Just stay down and don't move." I think this was the riskiest thing I've ever done with my life: ,negotiating with robbers when a gun was pointed at my head,. In the end, they all got their stuff and left. 5 minutes later, I walked out of my bedroom, took a sip of tea, and called the police. 5 minutes later, 4 police cars came. I was looking out the window. 10 cops popped out and pointed guns at me. I said, "It's ok, I live here. The robbers are gone." Then the cops did fingerprints, forensics, etc., and took my statement, etc. After a few hours, the police left. That same night, the (or some) robbers came back because they took my house key. But we changed the lock that evening, so they couldn't come in. My cousin (30 year old, female), who was with me at that time, was so scared. She yelled and was crying so loud the whole house could hear. We heard the robbers outside our house banging on the door and got really pissed. I told my cousin to shut up, otherwise they would know we're in here. She was crying everywhere and was hiding in the closet. We called the cops again, and this time, a SWAT team came. 20 cops, all dressed in bullet-proof vests with M4 rifles and those SWAT cars...drove up to our house, and examined our property. They didn't find anything, and they told us they would be on watch if anything happened later at night. So that's the story. Here's what I learned: I was amazed how calm I was able to be during the entire situation., I seriously never thought I could control myself like that. I thought I would be scared and lose control, but I didn't!! Survival instincts kicked in. These people probably just wanted money. They don't want to hurt anyone. The officers said that the gun was probably real. If the robbers were calm (which they were), the gun is fucking real and/or they've done this before. The officers said these people were professionals. They've robbed like this before and the police have been on their trail for a long time. The robbers didn't have a mask, so I recognized their faces. The police told me to move out as soon as possible because there is a slight chance (10%) they'll come back to kill me. After all, I did see all their faces very clearly. ,Do not look at their faces,. I was lucky my cousin was at work during this time. If she was here, things would have been bad. She would be so scared, I don't think she would have been able to control herself. Don't live in Hunter's Point. Don't live in Hunter's Point with windows open and no bars around your windows. Don't be the only Asian living in Hunter's Point. Don't live in Hunter's Point when your cousin drives a brand new 2010 silver BMW 328i. I was an idiot even considering whether to give them the $1000. Dude, give it to them and make them happy. It's a thousand dollars. Don't be an idiot. After this incident, nothing can scare me (I don't know if that's a good or bad thing). If someone pointed a gun to my head in the future, I would be 100% just as calm as I was during this incident, if not more. I think this incident made me less cautious and gave me more confidence in dangerous situations (this might be bad, I know).
