BMW 1 Series Coupe

Personally I admired the new design of  1-series coupe by BMW. I have test driven a 3-series myself and I was flattered because it does not deserve a thumbs up. However there is just something about the 1-series coupe that can’t be found on other BMW models out there. Actually just last week BMW officially announced the 2012 BMW 1-series, which has became the talk of mouth in the auto industry. The main features is actually the 135i which showcases the newest N55 engine which is also a 3.0-liter inline-6 engine. Personally I can say it’s eco-friendly since it uses diesel gasoline and has low mileage. Besides,The 135i can be equipped with the 7-speed double clutch transmission (DCT) which we’ve seen before on the new Z4 roadster and other BMW models.
To date there are only two versions available in the market with this update, the 128i Coupe and the 135i Coupe. The 128i is powered by a 3.0-liter engine producing 230 bhp and and could run on its standard speed limit. It features the BMW Valvetronic throttle-less intake technology and an aluminium/magnesium construction which are some of the core elements of the BMW EfficientDynamics program. Apart from the excellent features, no one can deny that the maintenance of this model is quite easier compared to other car brands. These days, there are a lot of parts store online that offer quality BMW parts and accessories, which can be accessed using the wide coverage of the internet.

Chevy Spark – A Sparkling Piece

Spark has stolen the attention of many with its smart and stylish compact body. The rivalry for this new baby is not a cup of tea with more established brands like Hyundai, Tata and Maruti already breaking the barriers of success with their efficient cars..Yet, Chevrolet is slowly nudging in with its wide range of cars which have now proved that they can go head on with any of its competitors. The hatchback is bestowed with quotation style head lamps and unique round tail lamps which speak about its class. The hatchback is available with the traditional steel wheel and alloy wheel option. The placement of instrumentation pod in the center of the dashboard can create problems for drivers. The air conditioner of Chevrolet Spark takes a bit longer than usual to cool the cabin. Also, the trunk space is very less and in LPG variant it is completely taken off. The hatchback cannot take on heighted drivers due to its less spacious cabin.
The all new Chevrolet Spark is a charming hatchback with elegant and sturdy body style that gives it an edge over its rivals. Spark is somewhat similar to the forgotten Daewoo Matiz with redefined exteriors, interiors and powerful engine. Given the fact that Chevrolet is relatively new in the Indian auto market, the trust factor could avoid buyers of the thinking ‘There is always risk in going for new brands’ The presence of satin silver roof railing with shoulder line and converging line rising at the front exhilarates its exteriors with sporty looks. The beautiful, almost disappearing, upper front grille and the large lower grille guarded by fog lamps on either side exhibit the power of simplicity.

Jeep Comanche – Old Yet Gold!

We can’t deny it Jeeps are about the right size to fit on off-road trails, but nothing in Jeep’s (domestic) lineup offers a pickup bed.
However before you mention the recently announced Mopar kit to convert a JK Unlimited into a half-cab pickup, that just don’t cut the mustard. MJ Comanche in fact shared just about everything with the four-door XJ from the doors forward, including the UniFrame chassis and the XJ’s choice of fuel-injected 2.5L four-cylinder engine, GM-sourced carbureted 2.8L V-6 engine, or Renault-sourced turbodiesel 2.1L four-cylinder.
Under its skin, the 1986 Comanche became a sort of one-year-only design, with the substructure forward of the firewall changing in 1987 to permit the longer 4.0L engine in both the XJ and MJ.
Though Jeep continued to produce the MJ through 1992 – including the rare and desirable Eliminator versions – its fate was effectively sealed in 1987 when AMC came under the control of Chrysler, which already had its own compact pickup in the Dakota. Jeep built a total of 45,219 Comanches in 1986, the second-highest total for the MJ over its lifespan. From the cab back, however, the MJ used a specially-designed subframe that connected to the forward UniFrame chassis and used a leaf-spring suspension similar to the XJ’s, but fitted with longer springs to handle heavier loads as well as a height-sensing proportioning valve that changed the brake bias when the bed had a load in it.

Bringing Back The Legacy Of Daewoo Parts

“Great House” is the meaning of the word Daewoo and a couple of years ago it was dismantled by the Korean government and became a name of a car although the production was stopped because of some issues with regards to the engineering. However then, there are still drivers who are using their Daewoo cars nowadays. With regards to this concern, manufacturers are continuously distributing Daewoo truck parts from all over the world up to now. They could be seen sorted from model, year and brand. There are also the ones that are cheaper and often known as aftermarket parts. Some drivers actually prepared to have them rather than to get an OEM since their purpose is just for tuning and for temporary use only.

Basically, Daewoo parts are of good quality and durability. No question about it. In the past, these parts could only be seen on local junkyard. But with the advancement in the technology today, there are also online stores that offer such parts. Using this advantage, they encouraged customers to shop online by means of their websites. Upon the order, they would just accept the payment thru master card and the specific product would be delivered on to them by means of FREE shipping. There is also the so-called return policy to assure that the parts are in good condition. Else, the dealer would give back the payment the customer had on the day of the order.

From the word, grill, grille assembly is one of the features attached on your car. It can be found at the end of the front body, where the emblem is being placed and seen. However, this isn’t just a simple accessory. Instead, it has a main function and that is to protect the inner parts from several factors such as road objects, rain and other objects that can cause interior issue. It also controls too much heat from entering the engine. As time passes, grilles got damaged by several factors mentioned above and definitely, you should replace this part if that thing happens. Or else, it would result to a huge issue. 

In today’s advanced world, there are a lot of designs that you could choose from and I highly recommend getting a Westin Grille Assembly. What are the qualities this brand possessed that you can’t see with others? Well, first of all this is fantastic since it adds attraction to your car. Add to that, Westin grilles are made from the finest materials like light metals, plastic and other quality stuff that are capable of protecting the inner parts of your car.  Besides, they are much cheaper compare to other brands that are out in the market. You can choose the color that best fit for your auto. 

There are a lot of designs as well plus you can customize the grille as you wish. Always remember to check the manufacturer part before getting one. If you may not know, there are a lot of scams on the net today and as much as possible you need to avoid this and prevent from too much waste of money.

Starter Solenoid: Do You Often Hear Starter Clicks On Your Car?

I just check discussion sites and I observed that there are a lot of folks complaining about the starter of their car. It’s true that almost forty percent of experience drivers are experiencing such issue and thus I’m here to explain to you why this heck thing keeps on happening. First of all, I would like you to know that there are several factors causing car starter problems and these stuff could be found on or near the transmission are such as the battery, the alternator, the sealed beam and the starter solenoid.
The battery is the main source of electricity and this plays a vital role to a car. If you would use the electrical scheme you will notice that after the charge was released by the batter it would be passed to the distributor and to other portion of your car. But before that, there is an area that electricity would pass first and that is the starter solenoid. The starter solenoid on vehicles is on the inner fender well mounted near the transmission area. If you heard a beat of clicking, that might be the starter solenoid.
However then, low-charge battery could also cause such problem. To avoid this issue, you should always check the starter solenoid and must be replaced at least thrice a year. Starter solenoid issue could lead to bigger troubles and as much as possible you should address this issue. I recommend getting a Standard Starter Solenoid as it is universally used by drivers. Not just quality is basis but the durability also. They could be found on many stores on the internet and you could let it delivered to you in just a few clicks of your mouse.

Carburetor Gasket Kit: A Big Trouble

Recently, I encountered a problem on the carburetor gasket kit and that was such a big charge to experience. I have a 99 m900 and this is my first motorcycle since I was high school. I already did some replacement with the carb. The last time I remembered was that I took it to the dealer for another replacement. They have charged me $300. Weeks later, the dealer returned it to me assuring that is ok but actually not. As I ran my baby, it once stall into a gear on the neutral mode. However then, there is a white smoke that came up on the transmission and stopped while on the neutral mode. I decided not to return to the dealer but to fix it on my own. 

Not so knowledgeable about it, I search for manual and finally found one. I’ve purchased a new Standard carburetor gasket kit plus additional front pipe and have done the replacement. The total amount I’ve shelled out was $300, the amount I paid in the labor years ago.  I've looked though a bunch of the parts diagrams using the internet and classify which one will best fit on my baby. I’d found a universal gasket kit at around $60. I was amazed with the result and was glad of it. If I were to asked, I would recommend the Standard for it has the quality and the durability, which you could found from other brands. Not that bias, im giving my thumbs up to it. :)
