  1. Is M7 on the way to reality ?

    6litre, V-12 is way too big engine. Even the biggest of the SUVs have less than 4litres engine. RR phantom stands in comparison
  2. Buying New BMW.

    @jain.harsh1089 you already owned a BMW car so you know better. New BMW X1 looks great unlike its yesteryear sibling. I would only like to ask if any of the new BMW has any hybrid feature?
  3. I agree! The ultimate goal is to have zero emission that could only be possible if the outcome is water. There is no point removing sulphur from fuel to an extent where cost to achieve benefit is more than the benefit itself. Moreover little sulphur is required to aid the formation of sulphuric acid so that engine sleeve can corrode to retain the lubricating oil.
  4. Current Vehicle Recalls

    These flanges may be developing some sort of cracks due to undue hardness.
  5. X3 Owner - Hello, folks!

  6. Hi From Car Camera India

    I myself, few days back, purchased Garmin T55, dashcam.
  7. First Tesla has to launch their cars in India, don’t know when will that happen ! Tesla or VW won’t be able to sell so many cars as people will have their own doubts with regard to charging stations etc as EVs aren’t hybrids. Quality car maker’s batteries would be reliable. Over and above cost of the car would be crucial for their success.
  8. Yesterday in Homedepot(Martinez), California, where I was buying a cordless impact wrench and cordless hammer drill, happen to meet a Tesla sale executive and he was briefing me on Tesla model S. He told me that the battery pack for the car costs 6000${4 lakhs} but comes with a conditional warranty of 25years. Actually it’s fair deal.
  9. @Bhuvan Anejawelcome back after a gap of one year. The Amsoil May not be serious of 40,000km guarantee on its oil. No matter what one does the oil needs to be renewed after a year as it becomes breeding ground for microbes. The additives gets neutralised after 10,000km. 40,000km is a unrealistic figure
  10. @librankurThere was a great and realistic article in autocar magazine by its sub editor Mr Shapur Kotwal stating that 70% of the electricity, in India, is generated by burning coal. So EV vehicles aren’t ecofriendly. Though you aren’t polluting cities but surely pollution will increase in the outskirts. Now m! is there a plan to recycle Li-ion batteries which would require replacement every three years. Charging stations every 50kms. Just going with the EU would be stupidity. Hybrid vehicles is the immediate answer.
  11. Hi Everybody

    @Sahaya Auto Serviceswelcome! aboard this forum. Where are you based? What’s your expertise?
  12. @mayanktanwar don’t get me wrong. Battery voltage is 12V, true. Cranking power, pertaining to car, would be nos. of starts it can give to a car in a single charge
  13. @mayanktanwar I wanted to know CCA but I missed the post by @Herry Das as he wrote my name incorrectly. 65AH battery means the battery capable of supplying 65A line current to load continuously for 1Hour
