So in this video I will tell you 5 things which you shouldn't be doing. 1. Rest your arm on the shift knob It's not a great idea to rest your hand on the gear shifter. You basically add pressure to it, and over time, wear signs will appear. I know it's comfy, sometimes, when I don't realise, I also rest my hand on the gear shifter. Anyways, bad habit, so avoid it. 2. Shift slower when it's cold When the engine is cold, the engine oil is also cold. The same thing applies for the transmission fluid within the manual transmission. I'm pretty sure you've seen for yourself that it's harder to shift, and sometimes, the gearbox makes a spur sound when you shift from 1st to 2nd gear when it's extremely cold outside and you just started the engine. And guess what, it takes longer for the transmission fluid to warm up, as there is no combustion within it. It heats up just by friction. When the transmission fluid is at the optimum temperature, shifts are fast and smooth. So, for around 15 minutes after you start the engine, don't be brutal, shift gears slower. 3. You don't have a synchroniser for the reverse gear, so you need to be completely stopped unless you don't want to experience a spur noise. You can actually damage the transmission by repeatedly doing this. For the sake of this video, I do it to show you. So the wheels should not move. Also, if the car is stopped, and you're in neutral. After several seconds, if you try to put in reverse quickly, the same spur sound will come again. So, to avoid this, put it in first and then in neutral. In 1st gear, you have a synchroniser, so everything is smooth. This tip is available for any manual transmission, even if it's brand new. 4. Engine Start - the best way to start a car with a manual transmission is to press the clutch pedal and the brake and then start the engine. If you have a newer car, you won't be able to start the car if you don't press the clutch. That's because it's easier for the engine to start without having to spin the transmission in neutral, especially when it's extremely cold outside. 5. Do not keep the car steady up a hill through the clutch. Like I'm doing right now. It's one of the worst things you could do to damage the clutch disc or to wear it out prematurely. Simply pull the handbrake, and when you need to go, release it. Lots of drivers do this, and it's an extremely bad habit. Stop doing it.

Are Manual Transmissions Going Extinct?
 
03:01
Are we going to have manual transmissions over 30 years? 100 years? Watch this video to find out. Video Gear Main Camera - Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Lens - Lumix 25mm ASPH f1.7 - https://amzn.to/2jjdEyr Second Camera - GoPro 5 Session - https://amzn.to/2HFWPs4 Audio Recorder - Zoom H4n Pro - https://amzn.to/2Fvyfs0 Condenser Microphone - Audio Technica AT2020 - https://amzn.to/2rbTryZ Headphones - Audio Technica M50x - https://amzn.to/2HJFfU6 Microphone Arm - Neewer - https://amzn.to/2HZRUFN Music - Epidemic Sound Credits - Dragtimesinfo Have you have ever wondered if manual transmissions will ever go completely extinct? Watch this video till the end to find out! For car enthusiasts, for stick shift enthusiasts, things are getting worse. Manual transmissions are getting more and more difficult to find on brand new cars, especially on sports cars with a lot of power. Say goodbye to the manual Audi R8, say goodbye to manual Lambos, say goodbye to manual Audi RS models, say goodbye to lots of awesome care which not long ago, used to have manual transmissions. If you want a manual Audi RS model right now, you can get the Audi RS4 from 2007 or the Audi TT RS from 2012. It's true that if you want a car to be faster than 3.0 seconds from 0 to 60, the best option would be an automatic. No matter how fast you try to shift, it's almost impossible to go below 3 seconds. But where's the joy of driving a manual? We are heading towards hybrid and electric vehicles, which again - they run better on automatics. I don't really think that they will go completely extinct, even in 100 years from now, but it will get more and more expensive to drive one as time goes by. Could we have a manual electric car? We can, but it's not efficient, and I don't know which car manufacturer will do that? BMW? Maybe? Will they make a manual M electric car with RWD? That's a possibility, but it will be really, really expensive. For the moment, the only hybrid electric vehicle that I know which has a manual transmission is the Honda CR-Z. It has a 1.5 gasoline engine, naturally aspirated, attached to an electric motor. It's pretty efficient, but it's more sport oriented, for fun. It was an interesting experiment done by Honda, and as you can probably see, it didn't get too much attention. Maybe it will in the future. So, basically, it's possible, but it's not worth it for most manufacturers. Most cars produced today with manual transmissions are budget cars, and that's because a manual gearbox is way cheaper to manufacture compared to a torque converted automatic, a CVT, or a Dual Clutch Transmission. As long as we have gasoline and diesel, we will see cheap cars, below $15,000 with manual transmissions. But, what about in the next 30 years or so? A manual transmission attached to a car having RWD or AWD, with ESP switched off, gives you 100% control of the vehicle. That's not possible in autonomous cars or in cars with lots of safety systems and with an automatic transmission. So let's hope that we will still have manuals in the future.

I don't have that much power, just 102 horses, but I think it's enough for a small demonstration. So, how do we do a manual launch control??? (sound) Floor the acceleration, mine gets to 6,000 rpm and you're off... WROOONG NO, don't ever do this in a car with front wheel drive, you're ruining the transmission. What you really need to do is to rev the engine where it has the maximum torque - in my case, in my 1.6 NA engine, I have my maximum torque between 3000 and 4000 rpm, so that should be the sweet spot. So, ESP off, press the clutch, engage 1st gear, rev the engine at 3000 rpm, and release the clutch faster than you normally would - not instantly, but not too slowly. While you release the clutch fast, floor the acceleration. And there you go, a beautiful launch using a manual transmission.

💲How Much Can You Earn as an Automotive Engineer (Mechanical Engineering)

*Support 99Vehicles TV - https://www.paypal.me/99VehiclesTV ***Gear Used (Affiliate)*** Rode VideoMicro - http://amzn.to/2vPBYyY Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Chuki Beats - Music - https://www.youtube.com/user/CHUKImusic How Much Can You Earn as an Automotive Engineer? Hmmm... Though question to answer. It's not that easy to get an Engineering degree, you need to put a lot of effort, and you need to study a lot. First of all, if you're not into math and logical thinking, engineering isn't the right place for you. As an Automotive Engineer, you have plenty of job opportunities, but just like in any industry, it's really tough at the beginning when you don't have any working experience. To gain experience at first, it would be highly recommended to attend internships or even work as a volunteer. Now let's get a bit into numbers. On average, a junior automotive engineer should expect anywhere from 1200 to 1700 euros per month in Europe, but it really depends on the country that you live in. Unfortunately, Romania has a low GDP, and as a junior Automotive Engineer here you are paid between 300 and 600 euros per month. I believe in the United States you could also expect around $1,500 at the beginning. When you gain at least 3 years experience, things start to change. In Europe you should see over 2,000 euros. Senior Automotive Engineers should expect around 3 to 4 thousand euros per month in Europe and around 3 to 5 thousand dollars in the United States. I think the average salary for an Automotive Engineer around the world is around $2,500, which isn't that much in my opinion. You can make a decent living, but it won't make you a millionaire. I would say that the maximum salary that you could earn as an Automotive Engineer is around $15,000 per month, but this happens only if you are in Elite positions. Something like a Chief Designer at BMW, or a Chief Project Manager at Lamborghini. These kind of jobs are rare, so if you're planning to get into Engineering and get rich quickly, study something else. The most common jobs that I've seen for Automotive Engineers are: - designers in Computer Aided Design for car parts - quality checkers - logistics - work at Car Dealers or Car Shops In Romania, if you have an Automotive Engineering degree, you have the rights to work as a MOT tester like I do. I don't know how things work in other countries, but I believe you have other opportunities as well. Engineering isn't as paid as IT, programming or web development. Engineering is strictly for those who love science, and the automotive specialty is for those who love cars. I absolutely denied working in a factory, I feel imprisoned there, honestly. I have studied Automotive Engineering, because I really have a passion for cars and I wanted to get a better understanding of them. If you have the right mindset, you can make money in many other ways, a degree should just open your mind a little bit, but it shouldn't limit you. Before I got into this Engineering thing, I had lots of plans, I thought I could work abroad for different companies, but trust me, elite jobs will never be available for regular people so easily. The jobs that you will always find available are the hardest ones and the least paid. I met people who had great jobs as Engineers, but those kinds of people are rare. So, who is Automotive Engineering for? If you love science, math, physics and cars If you want to learn Computer Aided Design If you want to start your own business and you need a Degree to learn more about how things work If you love cars and you have knowledge about cars If you are all about the money, this degree isn't for you, trust me. If you're all about the money, you should study marketing, web development, IT, programming, app development, things like that. I face a lot of struggles before I graduated, I changed 2 jobs in this area, and I currently work as a MOT tester and I also diagnose and test cars. It's not the best job in the world, but it's fine at the moment. Music Credit - Chuki Beats

Audi Q7 2010 3.0 TDI Quattro Review & Acceleration
 
04:11
Video Gear Rode VideoMicro - http://amzn.to/2vPBYyY Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Lumix 25mm ASPH f1.7 - https://amzn.to/2jjdEyr GoPro 5 Session - https://amzn.to/2HFWPs4 Music Credit - Chuki Beats https://www.youtube.com/user/CHUKImusic In this video I'm reviewing an Audi Q7 from 2010 with an Automatic Tiptronic transmission. This car features a 3.0L V6 Turbocharged Diesel engine which produces 245 horse power and 550Nm of torque. It also features Quattro permanent All Wheel Drive. It accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 8.2 seconds and top speed is around 220km/h. It's an Audi, so we should expect lots of luxurious features over here. The interior is cozy, you have plenty of room whether you're the driver or the rear passenger. Everything in this car feels premium. The Q7 also comes with air suspension which is outstanding in my opinion. In dynamic mode, it's rigid, tough and sporty. In increases the vehicle's stability and you can go really fast. The last setting of the suspension or the lowest point of the suspension is at 180km/h. Fuel consumption is pretty decent for a 2.5 tone car - around 11L/100km on average. This unit that I'm currently driving was bought brand new in 2010 and right now it has 252,000km onboard and it runs as new. Maintenance has been always done on time, and the car still feels great. No technical problems at all until now. Steering is excellent, handling is excellent, especially for this size, the viewing position is great, and the overall driving experience gives you a premium feel. Should I tell you about features? Well, probably not... it has anything that comes into your mind - 13 speakers, subwoofers, sat navigation, xenon, leather, wood, power, and the list goes on. Now, what I don't like about this car: - it's really heavy - in fact this car is twice as heavy as my Audi A3, so this 3.0L engine carries 2 cars and consumes pretty decently. - the tiptronic transmission isn't the best one in the world, they should have used S-Tronic in my opinion. I know they used tiptronic for comfort, the S-Tronic is a bit brutal sometimes, especially on bigger engines. - rust ? seriously? My Audi from 2004 barely has any rust, and this Audi from 2010 started to have rust in a few spots. Harsh Audi... - having 2.5tones weight seriously wears out tires. You would probably need a new set of tires every 2 years on this car, and one tire is pretty expensive for this model - around $300 each. So, should you buy a preowned Audi Q7 in 2017? Well, it could be a great deal if you like to go Off Road. Audi's Quattro AWD system is excellent for any conditions, so you could buy a Q7 in excellent condition at around 20,000 euros in Europe.

Audi A6 C5 2003 2.5 TDI Manual Review & Acceleration 0-100

It was designed for business people or for those who have a large family. The 2.5 V6 diesel engine was a monster at its time. Great fuel economy, great sound, great performance, stunning reliability. This car has over 250,000km onboard and it still works just fine. It accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in a little over 9 seconds and top speed is around 240km/h. You can feel the 6 cylinders even from 1000 rpm. Even if this car has only 163hp and 310Nm of torque, in the low rev range it feels as if it's a lot more powerful. This usually happens when the car has more cylinders. At the other side, a car with the same power output, but having only 4 cylinders feels a lot slower. The A6 comes with tons of features, even if it's 14 years old right now. You have a foldable electric curtain in the rear, ESP and ABS as standard, this car has Bosse sound system with 13 speakers and dedicated subwoofers, navigation, electric mirrors, heated seats, front and side airbags, and many other optionals which this car doesn't have, unfortunately. As you would expect from a limo, it's super comfortable. As a matter a fact, in my opinion, it gets annoying. If a car is too comfortable, it means that you need to sacrifice handling. It's not as close as good in terms of handling compared to my A3, but they were designed for different types of drivers. Here's the list with all the engine configurations for this model: 1.8T - 150 2.0 - 131hp 2.4 - 170hp V6 2.7 bi-turbo 3.0 1.9 TDI 2.5 TDI 2.5 TDI Quattro In my opinion, the best versions that you can get are the 3.0 V6 N.A. engine with a manual transmission and Quattro AWD or the 2.5 TDI Quattro which has more horses and permanent AWD. As I was saying, the suspension is pretty soft, the transmission is a bit heavy, It requires a bit of effort to shift, especially if you want to drive aggressively, handling is OK, steering is hydraulic and it's a bit heavy, but it gives a great feel, especially at greater speeds. You have plenty of space in the rear - you have lots of headroom and lots of kneeroom. You can easily fit 3 adults in the back. The boot is huge - you could go on a 2 week road trip no problem with this car, you could carry half of your wardrobe in this car, and I mean it. The interior is spacious, the dashboard is wide. It's a great place to spend your time. The Audi A6 with the 2.5 Turbodiesel engine sounds amazing. It's a pleasure to drive this car. This car comes with 16" or 17" wheels as standard. Now what I really don't like about this car - body role and body yaw. When you accelerate and brake, this car feels like a boat. Sports capabilities are the last thing you should expect in this car. It has power, you can go fast on the highway, but don't force it through corners, you will get disappointed. I love the fact that you have an oil temperature gauge as standard in the instrument cluster. Very few cars have this feature. It's more realistic and accurate to watch the temperature of the oil rather than the temperature of the coolant. I am really thinking if I should buy a 3.0L V6 gasoline engine with a manual transmission on this car. It's cheap and reliable. So you should definitely check out this car if you want a premium used car on a budget. A person who buys an Audi A6 is a serious person. It's for someone who cares about his image, it's for someone who loves refinement. And believe it or not, this car isn't too expensive to buy and maintain. You can acquire an A6 at only $5000 in excellent condition which is identical to this one.

5 Things You Should Check on Your Car Regularly
 
03:08
*Support 99Vehicles TV - https://www.paypal.me/99VehiclesTV ***Gear Used (Affiliate)*** Rode VideoMicro - http://amzn.to/2vPBYyY Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Panasonic 25mm f1.7 ASPH M4/3 Lens http://amzn.to/2vUBRjU 5 Things You Should Check on Your Car Regularly - Oil Level - 0:12 - Coolant Level - 1:14 - Tire Inflation - 1:32 - Lights - 2:12 - Washer Fluid - 2:38 Hey, in this video we'll talk about why you should check a few core things regularly on your car. Most drivers tend to neglect simple things which are extremely important for their cars. 1. As you would expect, and the most important is the oil level. Most engines consume oil, especially if they have high mileage, if they're driven aggressively or at high rpm on the highway. Some cars have oil level sensors which will tell you if you're oil level is below minimum, but some cars don't. Only a week ago, a lady came in our car workshop to tell us that her engine sounds more metallic, that the coolant overheats fast, and it's not working properly. It was a Ford Focus from 2001 with a 1.6 gasoline engine, and guess what, no oil sensor. When I checked the level with the dipstick, it was completely dry. I poured a Litre of fresh oil, and checked again. The dipstick was dry. I poured another Litre, and the dipstick was still dry. I poured the 3rd Litre and the level was between minimum and maximum. The poor engine was running on 0.5 Litres of oil instead of 3.8L. There were metal fragments on the dipstick, and the engine was completely damaged, so we had to replace it. If you want to avoid an expensive mess like this one, make sure to check your oil level each month, especially if you're car is older and it doesn't come with an oil level sensor. 2. Coolant level - generally speaking, if you don't have any leaks somewhere, the coolant level shouldn't change. However, you should still keep an eye on it from time to time. I would recommend changing it every 3 years or at least when you change the timing belts together with the water pump. If you have a timing chain, change the coolant every 3 years. If you don't, it will become corrosive and it will cause damage. 3. Tire pressure - air pressure varies together with temperature. Also, micro cracks exist in the rubber, so air could escape at any time. Make sure to check your tire pressure at least once every 2 months, even sooner. Driving with under inflated tires may have catastrophic consequences - loss of grip, the tires may fall off the rims, handling is affected, braking performance is affected. Even if the pressure is below 0.2 bars below the recommended value you will add extra wear to the tires. At the same time, driving with over inflated tires is still bad. The ride will be tough and rigid and you will still add extra wear to the tires. 4. Lights - I have a smart car which tells me exactly what lights went out, but not all cars have this feature. You should always check your lights regularly - fog lights, plate lights, rear lights, front lights, low beam, high beam. If you drive your car without lights, you might be unlucky enough to get a ticket. Plus you don't have visibility. 5. Washer Fluid - what would you do if outside there are -17C, you're driving on a salty and sandy highway at 110km/h, your windshield need to be clean, and you suddenly ran out of washer fluid? OOPS In some situations, having your windshield clean is critical, so be sure to fill your washer fluid level each time you go for a longer drive.

Number 1 - Don't rush when launching. There's no need to floor it, especially if you have FWD like I do. Simply rev the engine to around 3 to 4 thousand rpm and go. It's much better for the clutch, plus you won't have any wheel spin. Number 2 - Do not overrev the engine from standstill. Most of the times, I start with 1 thousand rpm. I barely touch the acceleration pedal. And that's the best way to start. In this way you will add minimum wear to the clutch. So, avoid starts like this. If you just started driving a manual and you don't have too much experience, you will overrev it at the beginning, but over time, you'll get better, trust me. Number 3 - When switching from reverse to first gear and you're in a rush, make sure to STOP first. Don't do it like this. You're basically forcing it to spin the other way around way too fast. The best way to avoid any damage is to completely stop the car and then switch from reverse to first gear. Number 4 - Do not rest your foot on the clutch - Even if you barely touch the clutch, you might add enough pressure to slightly engage the clutch. In this way you will add excessive wear on the clutch disc and on the bearing. Simply rest your foot on the left. Number 5 - Do not wait at a stop light with the clutch pressed. It's the worst thing you could do to your manual car. People who are afraid to stall the car or who are driving a manual for the first time have this habit. Simply put it in neutral and take your foot off the clutch. It's that simple.

Adding a Stage 1 Chip to a Volkswagen Golf 6 2.0 TDI DSG!

Watch this video to find out the results. I’ve done a Stage 1 chip to a Volkswagen Golf 6 with a 2.0L Diesel engine with 140hp and a Dual Clutch Transmission. I used my car to constantly have above 13V while rewriting the ECU. The Stage 1 from Dimmsport promises 170HP and 380Nm of torque, but you know what? It feels more powerful than that. Throttle response improved, everything feels faster. I’m not a huge fan of adding 500HP to a 2.0L engine by changing internals, but I can assure you that a Stage one with a whopping 15% increase won’t do any harm to your engine as long as you do maintenance on time. And I also love this little Golf. It’s agile, practical, it looks good, it’s relatively new, I think this particular model in this video is from 2011 or so. Steering is sharp, you have plenty of options, and you can find one in excellent condition at around 10,000 euros. Well, you can go below that price if you get a gas engine with a manual, or you can pay a few thousands more for the GTI.

What is Engine Braking?

This is a common question which I get from most of my followers. The short answer is yes, but in this video I will explain you why it's so crucial. Stay tuned. Engine braking can be used in both manual and automatic cars, but it's more fun to use it in a manual transmission vehicle. When you're driving and you don't need to accelerate - you have 3 options: 1. To leave the car in neutral, which I don't recommend. 2. To brake 3. You use engine braking By using engine braking and regular braking, you will achieve the best braking performance of the car. So this is the most crucial point, you increase braking performance. The second reason why you should use engine braking - fuel consumption is 0.0L/100km. Basically, the injectors shut down, no fuel is injected into the cylinders, and you're slowing down because the wheels will power the engine. Basically, if you use engine braking all the time, you will save fuel. If you would leave the car in neutral, you would have 1-2L/100km fuel consumption, but when you're in-gear, you will have 0.0L/100km. There are 3 factors which influence engine braking: One - number of cylinders Two - compression ratio Three - high rpm Generally speaking, a Diesel engine has better engine braking performance, and the main reason, you've guessed it - compression ratio. An average Diesel engine with common rail technology has around 16 compression ratio, whereas a gasoline engine has around 11. The third reason why you should use engine breaking - less wear to the engine and the brake system. You won't need to hit the brakes that much, so less wear. The engine will run without having to use fuel, so it will cool down for a moment. In any way you use engine braking, it's great. Less wear, better fuel economy, better braking performance. It does require a bit of driver involvement, and most people don't use it because they're lazy. I personally love to use engine braking all the time.

Which Are The Most Reliable Cars?

Music - Chuki beats The perfect car doesn't exist, but... How about... reliability? What Are The Most Reliable Cars? Video Gear Main Camera - Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Lens - Lumix 25mm ASPH f1.7 - https://amzn.to/2jjdEyr Second Camera - GoPro 5 Session - https://amzn.to/2HFWPs4 Audio Recorder - Zoom H4n Pro - https://amzn.to/2Fvyfs0 Condenser Microphone - Audio Technica AT2020 - https://amzn.to/2rbTryZ Headphones - Audio Technica M50x - https://amzn.to/2HJFfU6 Microphone Arm - Neewer - https://amzn.to/2HZRUFN Gasoline Naturally aspirated engines tend to be the most reliable at the moment, even if they're almost extinct. Having a Low power output (less than 100hp/Litre) also keeps the engine reliable, and that's because it's less subjected to pressure and stress. For now, Inline 6 and V8 engines are amongst the most reliable, and that's because they're well balanced. Inline 4 engines are also good and are the most frequently used. Turbocharging is fuel efficient, but kills reliability, especially if you use a larger turbocharger or the manufacturer is using a boost of over 1 bar. Having one turbocharger and a low power output still makes the car reliable enough. Adding more than one turbocharger adds complexity and the overall reliability of the engine decreases. Traditional engines have one or two camshafts, and the most reliable generally have one camshaft. The reason, again, less complexity. Simple things tend to be the most reliable, aren't they? Timing chains are more reliable than timing belts, so if you have a car with a timing chain, you can be sure that it will last for long. Low revving engines tend to perform better in terms of reliability. An engine which has the redline at 6500 rpm will be more reliable than an engine which hits redline at 9000 rpm. The inertia of the pistons is adding a tone of wear to the engine, so even if it's sounds great, it may not be the most reliable option. The compression ratio is also important. Older generation cars petrol cars had between 8.5 and 10. Current engines have up to 12.5, except Mazda's engine which has 14. Turbocharged engines have a lower compression ratio to increase the volume of the combustion chamber. Summary - what engines can you get with the specs above? Lexus, Toyota, Honda, Suzuki, BMW and more. A specific example - Suzuki Vitara 2015 - 2017 - 1.6- 120HP - I4 - Low power output, naturally aspirated, compression ratio of 12, timing chain. Made in Japan. An absolute beast in terms of reliability. This engine will last for long. Diesel Most Diesel engines are turbocharged nowadays. Most of the rules mentioned earlier are also available for Diesel engines. Common Rail Injection is currently the most reliable option. Inline 4, Inline 6, V6 Diesel engines are great and the most reliable. If it was up to me, I would pick a 3.0L Inline 6 Diesel engine. Specific Example - BMW 316D with a 2.0L turbo diesel engine and just 115HP. Great fuel economy, great reliability. Built like a tank. Now, Diesel vs. Gasoline - short summary Diesel engines in terms of mileage are almost twice as reliable. Basically, a good Diesel engine with maintenance done on time can easily reach 800,000km, while most gasoline engines barely reach 500,000km. With extreme downsizing nowadays, I would say that a 1.4 turbo gasoline engine barely reaches 300,000km. On the other hand, Diesel has expensive parts, expensive maintenance, a DPF filter which lasts for 200-300,000km, and as a whole, Diesel engines are more complex. So, in other words, you might drive a Diesel for longer, but a Gasoline will be easier to run, especially if it's naturally aspirated. Quick Summary - choose an engine with a decent power output, at least 4 cylinders, maximum 1 turbocharger, and preferably, with a timing chain. Transmission As a whole, manual transmissions are more reliable than automatics, but the world is heading towards automatic transmissions, so what are the best options? The most reliable are the CVTs and the 1 gear transmissions found in electric cars. When it comes to torque converted automatics, in my opinion, BMW is the king. Reliable, fast, efficient, they're great. The most unreliable, in my opinion, are the Dual Clutch Transmissions. Yeah, I know, throw rocks at me. I've driven most of them, the DCT is a pleasure to drive, but after 100,000km, problems start to occur. Sequential Gearboxes are complex and they require special attention, so don't bother with them. Such a transmission can be found on the BMW M3 E46 SMG. I'm sad to even say this, but the most reliable cars that money can buy today are from Lexus and Toyota. Honda is a great option, BMW is more luxurious, Audi is great for Quattro, Mercedes is awesome for luxury and elegance, and I don't want to go even further to supercars, that's a completely different league. We're talking about regular cars.

Upgrading Your Wheels
 
02:03

Maybe they're too big, maybe they're too small or maybe you hink they aren't goodlooking. So before you jump to biggher wheels, here's what you need to consider: 1. Pay attention to the width of the tires. On a standard rim you can fit 3 tire dimensions. So basically, for a rim with 7J you can fit 215 / 225 and 235 mm tires. And generally speaking, the ones that are the most frequently used will also be the most affordable. 2. If you buy aftermarket rims ... pay attention to the layout of the bolts, and also make sure that the wheels are big enough to fit the brake calipers. What I mean by this - let's say you have 18" wheels and you want other 18" wheels. Make sure that the new wheels don't touch the brake calipers. This happens if you use smaller wheels than the manufacturer intended to. 3. You will add extra wear to thr suspension. If you upgrade from 16 inch to 19 inch wheels, you will wear out bushings, links, arms, coil springs and dampers. That's because a part of the road shocks are generally absorbed by the tires. 4. Acceleration will suffer, top speed will increase in each gear (slightly). Fuel consumption will also increase. 5. If you downgrade your wheels let's say from 18" inch wheels to 16" wheels, you will improve acceleration, maje the ride mor comfortable, but handling will suffer. This is great if you have a car which you only use to go daily from A to B and you want to cut down expenses a little bit. I personally like using the wheels given directly by the manufacurer, but I wouldn't mind owning some Vossen Wheels. I currently have 205/55R16 on my Audi A3 and they're fine on this car.

Every BMW Needs This!!

So you want a BMW, but you can't drive it like an M. Watch this video till the end to find out how you can do it. Video Gear Main Camera - Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Lens - Lumix 25mm ASPH f1.7 - https://amzn.to/2jjdEyr Second Camera - GoPro 5 Session - https://amzn.to/2HFWPs4 Audio Recorder - Zoom H4n Pro - https://amzn.to/2Fvyfs0 Condenser Microphone - Audio Technica AT2020 - https://amzn.to/2rbTryZ Headphones - Audio Technica M50x - https://amzn.to/2HJFfU6 Microphone Arm - Neewer - https://amzn.to/2HZRUFN A BMW can make you have a lot of fun, especially if you have enough power. However, most BMWs come with an open differential and you have just seen what happens. After one of the wheels start to slip, the open differential will send all the power to the slipping wheel. And there you go, you have a 1 Wheel Drift. Have you ever wondered why M models can drift so damn good? Well, it's not because they're powerful, it's because they come equipped with a limited slip differential. I could say that I'm mad on BMW because they didn't fit an LSD even on their M Packages or at least... on their M Performance models such as the M140i or M135i or M240i. Basically, if you want a full BMW M experience, you need to buy an M. There are no other options. At least... that's what BMW wants you to think. There are a few options which I will discuss right now. There's a company called Quaife, and they're basically making Limited Slip Differentials for lots of brands, especially for BMW and Mercedes. You can basically fit an LSD on FWD as well. A Quaife LSD costs anywhere from 7 hundred to 20 hundred bucks. So basically you're paying a lot less for the heart of an M. LSDs are standard on some cars, this includes the Subaru BRZ, the Renault Megane RS, and of course our BMW M models. The LSD used in Subaru is made by Torsen, and Torsen in also used in Audi, and yes, Audi uses a limited slip differential based AWD. Not only that an LSD is fun, but it's also great during winter seasons. You basically have more traction and it will make your life easier. So in other words, you can have a 1 series, a 3 series, a 5 series and any other BMW with RWD and you can fit a limited slip differential and you can have a tone of fun. All you need is over 200hp and the Quaife LSD and you're off. You have a budget M for a fraction of the cost plus you have cheaper maintenance as a whole. As a quick example, you can have a 325i e90 which has 218HP and 250Nm of torque out of a 2.5 NA Inline 6 engine and trust me, it's more than enough to throw it around corners if you fit a Quaife limited slip differential. The car will cost you anywhere from 8 to 10k and the differential around 1.5k. So, for less than 12k you have the BMW M experience. I couldn't say that it's the full M experience, but trust me, 80% of it, it's there. Music - Chuki Beats BMW M Drift clip - Car Throttle

Watch this video to find out more about engine oils and what oil you should use. Most people use 5W30 and 10W40 in their vehicles without evening knowing what it means. I have other videos about engine oils in which I explain clearly everything you need to know about viscosities, so before watching this video, I encourage you to watch those first. There are hundreds and hundreds of oils, so it's really tricky to choose the right one and also the one with the highest quality. Cheap oils can be those you get from a market which I call them "no name" oils. It's true that it's important to use the oil which is approved for your engine. Approvals such as BMW LL01 or LL04. I was wondering one day why there are oils on the market which cost $6 / Litre and why there are oils which cost $30 / Litre. There has to be something wrong over here, right? If we take BMW for example... You can use a cheap oil such as the Castrol Magnatec 5W40, which is approved by BMW, but it's not... a high quality or a high performance oil. The best oil, for high performance, low temperatures, fuel economy, and day to day driving is the 0W40 oil which you can get from Castrol, Mobil1, BMW or Liqui Molly. One Litre of BMW 0W40 costs around 22 Euros per Litre, so you make the difference. If you use a cheap oil over a high performance, high quality oil you will save around... $50 to $80. If you have an expensive BMW with a lot of horses, you don't really need a cheap oil. I personally used lots of oil types and brands. I'm currently using Castrol 0W40 with the VW502 / 505 approval and it's excellent. I previously used 10W60 which again, it was approved for my engine, but I found it harsh when there were below -10 degrees Celsius. So, a quick summary - the best oils - for gasoline 0w40, for modern Diesel engines, 5W30 or 0W30 and the oil needs to respect the manufacturer approval for your engine. Oh, and a quick note for those who may have a misconceptions about oils - the 0W40 is not thinner than 5W30. And also, a 0W oil will decrease fuel consumption.

What's Inside a DPF Filter? (Diesel Particulate Filter)
 
02:21
*Support 99Vehicles TV - https://www.paypal.me/99VehiclesTV ***Gear Used (Affiliate)*** Rode VideoMicro - http://amzn.to/2vPBYyY iPhone 6S - http://amzn.to/2x2VxlT *I didn't have the camera with me, it was shot on my iPhone. If you want to learn how a DPF works, I have another video on this topic, so you can check it out right now. Diesel Particulate Filters have an average lifetime of around 200,000km, but it strictly depends on driving conditions and driving behaviour. If you drive only in town for short distances, the DPF will get damaged pretty quickly. If you drive only on the highway, you might see 300,000km on one DPF. This BMW 5-Series from 2009 has 240,000km onboard and the DPF is completely clogged. The DPF is located at the beginning of the exhaust and it shares the same room with the catalytic converter. DPFs have cores ore cells made out of ceramic materials which filter soot, carbon and particulate matter pretty well. Most DPFs have an efficiency of over 85%, but modern ones can have up to 95%. As you can see, this DPF is completely clogged. Exhaust could not escape anymore through the DPF and engine faults appeared together with loss of power. Some folks prefer to delete the DPF from ECU by removing the DPF physically, and then remapping the engine as if it never had a DPF. By doing this, fuel consumption will decrease, and performance will increase. Driving a car after a DPF removal feels as if the car has another 10 extra horse power. However, it's illegal to drive a car equipped with a DPF without its DPF. Basically, instead of Euro 6 emissions standard, you have Euro 3 or 4 and you won't pass the MOT emissions test anymore.

When You REALLY Need to Change The Oil!?
 
03:37
CarThrottle - Engine Running W/O Oil - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfipRXooCTM FifthGear - 1/4 mile Before & After Oil Change - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7VxOlUVjoA When Do You REALLY Need to Change The Oil!? Hey, in this video I will tell you a few secrets about changing the oil. So if you want to learn how to maximise your engine's lifespan, then you should be watching this video. Some manufacturers recommend changing it at 15,000km, some at 30,000km. These ones are the so-called longlife oils. Honestly, don't change the oil at 30,000km, I will tell you why. If you're currently changing the oil every 15,000km or 1 year, it's fine, buy you could do better than that. The best time to change the oil is between 5,000 and 10,000km. Well, maybe 5,000km is too early, but if you go on Nurburgring a few laps, you should change it in 1,000km. Let me explain why this is so important, so critical. When you start the engine for the first time after several hours... the engine doesn't have any oil at all, so no lubrication. It takes around 1s in average until the engine gets oil... but what actually happens in that 1 second is the most critical. Tiny metal fragments will detach from the engine's components and they will circulate through the entire engine. That's the main reason why we have oil filters - they need to retain metal fragments from damaging the engine... but it can't filter everything, you know? Constantly driving with those metal fragments in the oil will add extra wear to the engine, so the sooner you change the oil, the better. As you may probably know, the oil has 3 main roles, but you may know only the first 2: Cooling Lubricating And the 3rd one is to wash out fine particles within the engine and retain them in the oil filter. Simple math - if you start the engine at least 3 times a day... this will result to approximately 1100 seconds in which the engine is running without any oil. 1100 seconds is equivalent to a little over 18 minutes. AAAnd did you know that in about 20 minutes of running continuously without oil will result in Engine Failure? The Guys from Carthrottle just did that, so feel free to watch their video. Within 15,000km the oil accumulates from 100 to 300 mg of fine particles and guess what? It makes the car even slower. Fifthgear has done a great experiment on this subject and after they did 3 runs before and after the oil change, they came up to the conclusion that the car was slower with around 1 second before the oil change. A good friend of mine owns an Audi A4 B5 from 1998 which has 1.9 Turbodiesel Engine with 110hp. He replaced the oil every 10,000km or even sooner and he drove the car continuously around 200km per day for the last 8 years. The car now has almost 1.3M kilometers onboard and still works just fine. I will show you his car and even drive it in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned for that. So literally, the oil is the life of the engine. How could Dealers tell us to change the oil at 30,000km. The last time I change the oil was at 9,000km, so knowing all this, when will you change your next oil? Let me know in the comment section below, subscribe now if you haven't already for more car videos, and I'll talk to you guys, in the next one.

Should You Buy an Inline 3 Engine?

Learn more about Inline 3 Engines in this video - pros, cons, reliability & more! Right now, in 2018, there are more and more car manufacturers which produce inline 3 engines, and the reason is a simple one - they were forced to downsize engines, and if the engine is too small, an Inline 4 would make the cylinders way too small. Inline 3 cylinders are more popular in Europe than other parts of the world, but anyways, here are the pros and cons of owning an Inline 3 engine. Now, let’s talk about the pros - the engine is lightweight - it’s cheap to manufacture, so basically, the car as a whole is cheaper - the coolant and the oil heat up quicker, so a gas engine with an inline 3 configuration is excellent around town, especially during winter - less cylinders, less moving parts, less friction, which means, less power loss - less oil, less coolant which means maintenance is also cheaper for the owner. If you had a V10, you would need 10L of oil on one change, if you had a V8 around 7 to 8L, for an Inline 6 around 6.5L and for a common Inline 4 you would need anywhere between 3.8 to 5L. For an Inline 3 you would need anywhere between 2.5 and 3.5 L of oil. - good fuel economy for normal driving conditions And now, the cons… - More vibrations than an Inline 4 - Power delivery is NOT smooth at all - Having an odd number will make the engine shake and vibrate and it’s not well balanced at all - You can get too much power out of an Inline 3. However, BMW managed to get 231 horses out of the 1.5 turbo inline 3 engines used on the i3. And I think… that’s the most powerful Inline 3 actually. From a classic Inline 4 you could get even 400HP on a production car, like you do in the Mercedes A45 AMG. These engines are not designed for performance, they’re designed for low emissions, low fuel economy, low costs, high volume sales, and normal driving conditions. Don’t expect to go with your Inline 3 on Nurburgring. An important mention would be on reliability - I can’t say that they’re less reliable than an Inline 4, because it really depends, but I can say that if you do maintenance on time and you drive it normally, as it was designed to, you could expect to have a reliable vehicle over here, so it really depends on the driver and driving style.

Volvo S60 D3 2012 Review POV Acceleration (2017)

All I knew about Volvo is that they make good trucks, they care about passenger safety, they're reliable, they have a simple design, and they're as expensive as a BMW! Well, after I drove this car, everything changed. This Volvo has a 2.0L Inline 5 Turbocharged Diesel engine. And not only that it has 163hp and 400Nm of torque, but they're delivered at 3000 rpm. That's right, this car reaches its full potential between 2000 and 3000 rpm. It almost feels like a truck. The sound is slightly different to an inline 4, it feels fast on this chassis, and everything is pretty smooth. This car was recently purchased by a friend of mine, and it was 11 thousand euros. At only 140,000km, this car feels as new. The transmission is great, the 6 speed manual on this car is excellent and the ratios are well balanced. Steering is perfect - you have great feedback, it's sharp, it's perfectly designed for any kind of driver. In terms of features, this car comes with anything that comes into your mind. I won't encounter all the features, but remember this - this car comes with dead angle sensors, part leather interior, LED headlamps, radar brake support, adaptive cruise control, ornaments, sat navigation, a great sound system, electric foldable mirrors, and many more. I think this car looks professional. It's not mean, it's not ugly, it's not brilliant. It looks clean and professional. I would probably see myself owning this car at around 30 years old or more. I haven't heard anyone complaining about Volvo, but I haven't seen too many sports cars from Volvo as well. They have a few, but not too many. My favourite feature in this car is Bliss. Those foldable electric mirrors with those sensors look so wicked. It makes this car come straight out of star wars. And it's so useful. I was so close to hit many cars because it was dark outside and they we're standing exactly in the blind spot. Every car should have Bliss. From what I've seen in the car workshop that I work, Volvos are pretty damn expensive to maintain. In some cases, they're even more expensive than BMWs, so I think I would still prefer a BMW. If you want a car which looks professional, it gives you a low profile, it promises you safety, and it won't let you down easily, then Volvo is the right car for you. I believe that this car isn't for young people like me, but I wouldn't bother owning one later. As you would expect from a 2012 car with a Diesel engine, it has a DPF, so be careful how and where you drive it. It's not suitable for frequent short drives around town.

Audi A5 Coupe 3.2 FSI Quattro Tiptronic Review & POV Drive
 
02:45
The unit that I'm driving today comes with a 3.2 V6 naturally aspirated gasoline engine with direct injection. 265HP, 330Nm of torque - 0 to 100km/h in a little over 6 seconds. Yeah, I know, not that much torque, but trust me, it sounds awesome! 18" inch wheels, 3 spoke Audi S-Line steering wheel, and Quattro AWD as standard. The car itself is extremely agile, extremely precise, the steering is absolutely perfect. Stability and handling in this car is annoyingly good, Quattro simply makes this car feel as if it's glued to the road. The A5 Coupe has a lower centre of gravity and a lower driving position compared to other Audi models that I've driven. Well, not as low as the TT, but lower than I expected at first. Full leather interior, multimedia interface, paddle shifters, a tiptronic automatic transmission, dual climate control, and the list of features goes on. The price for the model that I'm driving today, used, from 2010, with the same mileage - is anywhere around 10 to 11 thousand euros. Personally, this 3.2 engine is my favourite one from Audi, not too big, not too thirsty, reliable, sounds good, and it can be economical if you drive ... without breaking the speed limit. In 30 km, I managed to get 17L/100km, but if you're cruising in 6th gear, you can get as low as 7L/100km. So, the average fuel consumption for this car is anywhere around 13L/100km. Not that good, but not that bad, either. Now, the downsides of this car. I have found only 2. First of all, the car is extremely rigid and bumpy. If you're planning to drive this car for over 1000 km, it will be really tiring at some point. And the second one... the car looks pretty big, but the space in the interior is not enough. This car can perfectly fit 2 adults plus some luggage, but that's it. It has 4 seats, but they're ... tiny.

Start driving right away after you start the car - there's no need to warm up the engine stationary, you can start it, allow 30 seconds for the engine to suck oil, and then you can drive. 2. Keep the engine at its maximum torque - if you have a turbocharged vehicle, keep the engine between 2000 and 2500 rpm for the best fuel economy, just don't under rev it. If it's a naturally aspirated gasoline engine, keep it between 2500 and 3500 rpm. If you will under rev the car, you won't get a better fuel economy, the engine needs to run at a optimum rev range, where it has enough power and enough torque. 3. Don't accelerate aggressively - aggressive accelerations lead to huge instant fuel consumptions. Accelerate normally, don't rush, and you'll get a decent fuel consumption. That's how manufacturers get that low official consumption, they drive normally, not aggressively. 4. Use engine braking - during engine braking, you will have 0.0L/100km and that's because the wheels are powering the engine. Use it as much as you can. The worst thing you can do in a car is to accelerate brutally and then to brake brutally. Accelerate exactly how much you need, and when you decelerate, use engine braking. 5. Drive at constant speed - When you drive at constant speeds, you will have the best fuel consumption. You don't need to brake, you need to accelerate, so you won't waste any fuel. 6. Drive between 60 and 100km/h for the best fuel consumption - fuel consumption increases exponentially after 100km/h and that's because friction forces increase exponentially - aerodynamic forces increase, wheel-ground forces increase, and grip decreases. Here's an example for my own car - I have 1.6L naturally aspirated gasoline engine and I have just 102hp. When I drive at 70km/h in 5th gear at 2000 rpm on cruise control, I have a fuel consumption of 5.2L/100km. At 100 km/h, I have 6L/100km. At 120km/h I have 6.7L/100km, at 140km/h, I have 7.5L/100km, at 160km/h I have 8.3L/100km. At 200km/h which is the top speed of my car, I have 14L/100km. My point here is that fuel consumption increases exponentially with speed because friction forces increase. So, to sum up, if you want a great fuel consumption, drive at constant speed, at the engine's maximum torque, but don't under rev it, don't accelerate aggressively, and always use engine braking. Don't forget to subscribe, thank you for watching, and I'll talk to you guys in the next one.

Seat Leon FR 1.4 TSI DSG 2017 Review POV Driving

This Seat Leon from 2017 has an FR package, which is awesome, you have FR branding all over the car, the 1.4 turbo engine is quite snappy I would say, 150hp combined with a Dual Clutch Transmission makes this car accelerate in 8.2 seconds. Not bad. In terms of features, the unit that I’m driving has everything that you need, except navigation. Heated seats, climate control, a sport FR package, a flat bottom steering wheel, paddle shifters, an excellent sound system, Bluetooth, sport seats, and pretty much anything you need. At 22,000 euros, I would say that it’s a little bit pricy. If you want a little bit more out of this car, you would probably need the 1.8 turbo with 180hp. But, if you just want a brand new car, with features, a sporty look, and you care about fuel economy, then the 1.4 turbo is just fine. I absolutely love the cylinder on demand feature from Volkswagen Group. When you’re cruising, if you don’t need that much power, the engine deactivates 2 cylinders, and fuel economy goes down. In terms of space, it’s not spectacular, but for a small family, a couple, or a single person, it’s more than enough. Overall, the car is agile, steering is responsive, and the entire car is pretty much sport oriented. Not extremely sport like the Cupra model, but quite sporty. What I love the most about this car… these mirrors… look A-W-E-S-O-M-E. What I don’t like about this car… It has a tone of plastic, and for the price that you pay, I was expecting to see a few premium details. But they’re missing entirely. Plastic, plastic, plastic. The DCT is also annoying. It’s fast, it’s brand new, but sometimes it feels like… it doesn’t know what to do, it has… lag. Especially in 1st and 2nd gears. Except that, I really enjoyed driving this car. Special thanks to the owner for letting me drive this car.

It's currently my daily driver and I'm pretty happy with it, and I will tell you exactly why. This model was so good, that Audi kept making it from 2003 from 2011. They just made 2 facelifts - one in 2005 and one in 2009. The 1.6 engine that I have is the least powerful version of the model, you could have lots of other engine and transmission versions as well, Diesel, Gasoline, Front Wheel Drive, All Wheel Drive, Manual or Automatic. Let's talk a bit about performance. This car has 102hp and 148Nm of torque, and just 1280kg. Zero to 60mph takes 11.8s to accelerate. I gave it a shot and managed to get 13s, but I didn't push it to its limit - maybe if disable ESP and I go to redline at 6500rpm I may get 11.8 seconds. Top speed is 195 kmh- tested by myself on the highway. The automatic version is a bit faster - around 210kmh and that's because it has 6 gears.

Thinking About Buying an Audi?

Johnna Jameson laugh) Allrightythen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uX2wZPnQdPA Music - Chuki Beats Don’t throw rocks at me, I’m not a BMW hater, but let’s face it - Audi’s Quattro is far superior compared to any other AWD system except Subaru’s one. So you’re planning to purchase an Audi and you don’t know if you really should or you simply don’t know which model to choose. Watch this video till the end to find out, and by the way, if it’s your first time here and you would like to learn more about cars and how they work, then you should consider subscribing. I’m posting videos regularly each week. OK, if you’re planning to purchase an Audi, congratulations, especially if it’s equipped with Quattro. You’ll get yourself a luxurious vehicle with one of the best AWD systems in the world, so you could go almost anywhere, especially if it’s an SUV or a Crossover. Now, what you need to keep in mind is that Quattro is split in 2 - small, entry level models are equipped with Haldex, while larger, premium models, starting with the A4 are equipped with torsen. To make it easy and clear, they’re 2 different AWD systems, and torsen is the real Quattro, so if you want an Audi with the best AWD, you need to look after the A4 and above. Transmissions in Audis are decent, you can have manual transmissions, multitronic which stands for their CVT, tiptronic which is a standard torque converted automatic and for the high performance S-Tronic which is a dual clutch transmission. Diesel engines aren’t bad either, you can have a 2.0 diesel engine with 140 or even 190hp which is reliable and fuel efficient. In terms of Diesel engines, I love the 3.0L V6 which has Quattro as standard and it’s fast, torquey, it sounds nice, and it has a great fuel consumption. Another great reason to buy an Audi… it’s FUN. Now, let’s see some options. If you want a compact car, fast enough, tons of features with Quattro, you can get an A3 with the 1.8 TFSI engine. You can get one in excellent condition from 12 to 15k euros. I believe you have similar prices for the United States, Australia and other regions of the world. If you want a faster sports car, you can aim for the TTS which has a small height, it’s compact, and you have 272hp out of a 2.0 turbocharged petrol engine. Need more power? No problem, you can get the original Audi R8 with the naturally aspirated V8 at a decent price. The R8 starts from 160k, so at this price, you’re making a great deal. I personally like small and medium sized vehicles, so another great option would be the Audi A6 with the 2.8 FSI Quattro. Luxurious, spacious, decent, and it’s just 15k. If you want a brand new luxurious Audi, I would buy a brand new S3 which is 45k euros. You have tons of options to choose from, so choose wisely. If you want the most out of your Audi, you should choose an S or an RS model. They deliver great performance, fuel economy, and they’re meant to be driven on any road in any weather conditions.

Motor Oil Viscosity - Engine Oil Comparison - Every Driver Must Know This!
 
09:58
Music - Epidemic Sound Video Gear Main Camera - Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Lens - Lumix 25mm ASPH f1.7 - https://amzn.to/2jjdEyr Second Camera - GoPro 5 Session - https://amzn.to/2HFWPs4 Audio Recorder - Zoom H4n Pro - https://amzn.to/2Fvyfs0 Condenser Microphone - Audio Technica AT2020 - https://amzn.to/2rbTryZ Headphones - Audio Technica M50x - https://amzn.to/2HJFfU6 Microphone Arm - Neewer - https://amzn.to/2HZRUFN 90% of drivers are confused nowadays about using the right motor oil or the right engine oil, and the truth is... that it's confusing. We have mineral oils, part synthetic oils, full synthetic oils, 0w20, 0W30, 0W40, 5W30, 5W40, 5W50, 10W60, 20W50 oils. We have approvals from different brands for different oils for different engines. So, let's break all these down and make everything simple for everybody. Oils have 2 viscosities - one at cold - 0W, 5W, 10W and one viscosity at 100 degrees Celsius. The principle behind all this is pretty simple - the oil is pretty thick, and as it runs through the engine, it heats up, and its viscosity decreases. As viscosity decreases, oil pressure decreases. At some point, if the oil is too thin, or too thick, you don't have enough lubrication. And here is a real world example - Subaru recommends 0W20 for the BRZ. It's a thin oil which will save you fuel, it will start at any temperature because it's thin, it's a 0W oil, and if you drive it in normal conditions, it's just fine it's great. Keep in mind, the BRZ has a 2.0 NA engine which produces 200hp or 100hp per litre. The BMW M3 e92 has a 4.0L V8 NA engine which has 420hp or 105hp per litre, which is pretty close to the BRZ in terms of power per litre. BMW recommends 10W60 oil which is a thick oil. Why? Because they know that this car will frequently hit redline at 8,000 rpm, and it will be driven in severe conditions, on a race track, drifts, etc. 0W20 Mobil 1 at 40 degrees C the oil has 44.8 cSt at 100 degrees C the oil has 8.7 cSt 0W40 Mobil 1 at 40 degrees C the oil has 75 cSt at 100 degrees C the oil has 13.5 cSt 10W60 Castrol Edge at 40 degrees C the oil has 160 cSt at 100 degrees C the oil has 22.7 cSt The 10W60 would probably have around 10 to 13 cSt at 130 degrees C in racing conditions, and that's the main reason why it's recommended for the M3 e92. If you take the M3 to Nurburgring with its 10W60 oil, no problem. If you take the BRZ to Nurburgring with 0W20, you are pretty likely to destroy the engine. Engine oil temperatures will get as high as 135 degrees C. The 10W60 will be fine, but the 0W20 won't. It will be like water - no oil pressure, boom, no lubrication. Engine oil temperatures, on average, vary from 90 to 105 degrees C. On a racetrack, they get as high as 140 degrees C, so we need a stronger oil. On the other hand, if you try to cold start the M3 at -30 degrees C with the 10W60, you won't have lubrication. The oil is way too thick. M3 owners who live in extremely cold areas should be using 0W40 during winter and 10W60 during winter. The BRZ with 0W20 will start at -30 C without a problem without damaging the engine. Now, let's make a quick summary. No matter what car you have, you don't need just one oil. Manufacturers recommend the one that saves fuel and helps the car run properly under normal conditions. Now, normal, has many meanings. Racetrack - thick oil - like a 5W50 or a 10W60 Cold areas - thin oil - 0W30 or 0W40 Fuel saving - thin oil - 0W20 or 0W30 Average driving, average temperatures, not too extreme - an average oil - 5W30 The most frequently recommended oil is 5W30, and that's because it fits most needs, but not the extreme ones. So basically, each specific oil satisfies something. It depends on how you drive, what you drive, where you drive, and what you do with your car. So, let me know in the comment section below if you have any other questions about oil viscosities, I also have 2 videos on using the right oil for BMW and Audi, so if you own a car from Volkswagen Group or a BMW, go ahead and watch those as well. Subscribe if you haven't already for more car videos, thank you for watching, and I'll to you guys, in the next one!

Smart Roadster 2006 Review (I got hit while reviewing this car...)

This funny looking thing is an interesting piece of engineering. First of all, it's a small car completely designed to drive around town. It's easy to park, it's lightweight, it has a 0.7L 3-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine, but it's pretty fast. It has 82hp and 110Nm of torque, but it has 790kg, which brings us a power to weight ratio of 1hp/9.6kg. It feels a lot faster than it actually is. It accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 10.9 seconds and top speed is 175km/h. Well, I wouldn't drive this car with more than 140km/h, but the specs are pretty impressive for a 0.7L engine. It has rear wheel drive, a semi-automatic transmission with 6 gears, and it comes with padel shifters, which are pretty great. The Smart Roadster is a short car, it's almost identical in terms of height with a Lamborghini, so if you're wondering how does it feel like to hop in a Lamborghini, well, try a Smart Roadster! In terms of features, it has air conditioning, full leather interior, 4 airbags, abs and esp, xenon headlamps, it's a cabriolet, fog lights, electric windows, electric mirrors, and heated seats. What I don't like about this car - it's annoying to get in and out of the car. I am pretty tall, so it's painful to hop in. Space for luggage is compromised - you have two small trunks - one in the front and one in the rear, but keep in mind, you can't go on a road trip with this car, you simply don't have enough space. What I really like about this car is the fuel consumption. You simply can't complain about it. As I drove it, I averaged around 5L/100km, and most of the time I was in the city, and I floored it several times. It consumes around 3.5 to 4L/100km outside town and around 5 to 6L/100km in the city. Handling is pretty decent in this car, I don't like the steering at all, it doesn't give enough feedback, and it's pretty heavy. The suspension is stiff, you can literally feel every single road bump, and turning radius isn't excellent. You can fit 15" and 16" wheels on this car, right now it's equipped with 185/55R15, but these are winter tires, so they're excellent. The interior is simple, but everything is ergonomic. The seats are also comfortable enough. Nothing to complain at the interior. Maintenance costs aren't too high, insurance and taxes should be low in any country knowing the engine size and power output. If the gearbox doesn't have any technical problems, you don't need to change the oil or anything like that. The price for this car, as tested, is around $5,000, so if you're planning to get one in excellent condition, you should be seeing this price quite often. This car is excellent for young people, so if you just got your driver's license, this car could be a great start. Smart is made by Mercedes, so you can opt for a Brabus option. If you want something exclusive and more powerful, you could get the Brabus edition, but it's way more expensive to purchase and maintain. Credits: Chuki Beats (Music)

This is because a turbocharger uses the exhaust gases to power a compressor which would eventually add more power and more torque to the engine. Turbochargers are inferior to superchargers in terms of performance, but they're much more efficient. As you would expect, turbocharging has its advantages and disadvantages. Naturally aspirated engines are getting close to extinction, so if you have the possibility to buy an excellent car (in excellent condition), you should definitely by picking one. BIG naturally aspirated engines are more violent than turbocharged ones as there is no turbo lag. Famous car manufacturers such as Lamborghini or Ferrari still use naturally aspirated engines even in 2017! The Lamborghini Huracan has a 5.2L N.A. V10 engine, the Lamborghini Aventador has a 6.5L N.A. V12. These cars are beasts. Not only that N.A. engines feel better, but they're more reliable, easier to maintain, and cheaper to purchase.

I've seen lots of people getting fooled by all kinds of sellers, so if you are planning to purchase a second hand car sooner or later, you should be watching this video. Buying a second hand car is a great way to save money and also get an awesome car, but sometimes, it can be tricky. Before we get started, you should first check my tutorial on how to pick a car. 1. Number of owners - how many owners did the car have? I honestly wouldn't buy a car with more than 2 owners. A car with with 5-6 owners should make you question yourself - why is everyone selling it? 2. Exterior - look for important external flaws - if the paint looks like this (video paint) it means that there are high chances that it was repainted or even crashed. Look for space gaps - this also proves that the car has been crashed. My own car suffered from a small crash, but it was repaired at the Dealer before I purchased it. If it was a light crash, it isn't a big deal, but try to figure out if the seller is trying to fool you. Also, wash the car before purchasing the car - look for scratches and flaws. You're not getting a brand new car, so these are normal, but you should be aware of what you're buying. If it has too many swirls and scratches, it may need a professional polish which isn't cheaper than $200. A full repaint can cost from $700 to $1200. 3. Keys - make sure that the seller will give you both original keys. An original key replacement costs start from $200 up to $400, so make sure to get them both. 4. Interior - I hate waves, swirls, stains, and other flaws in the interior. I like to have everything clean. Take a close look at the interior before buying it. Stains can be removed with steam cleaning technologies without even removing the seats, so that's not a huge issue. 5. Technical - Here you should really pay attention and I will tell you exactly where to look. - Oil Leaks - drive the car for at least 20km and floor it if possible. After that, take a look at the engine and check if there are any leaks. If there are oil leaks, there may be huge problems. If I would see any sign of oil leaks, I wouldn't EVER buy that car. My car is from 2004, it has 201,000km and it doesn't have ANY oil leaks at all. - Emissions - I work as a MOT tester, so I can easily tell if a car is in good condition or not. If it's a gasoline car, you should go and run a MOT test. If emissions are close to 0.02 (check photo), it means that the car is in excellent condition. If it fails the emissions test, it means that the engine may have a lot of wear or lack of compression, the catalyst may be damaged, lambda probes may be damaged, the exhaust pipes may have cracks, etc. - Keep in mind, a catalyst is over $500 and lambda probes are over $200. In case of Diesel engines, things are different, but keep this in mind - if it has a DPF, it has to have 0 smoke opacity (you shouldn't see any smoke at all). - Take a look at the brake discs/pads - if they're completely worn out, a set of discs and brake pads are over $300. 6. Avoid tuned vehicles - owners tend to increase power, to modify the engine, the transmission and even to modify the exterior or interior. I absolutely don't agree with anything except OEM tuning packages (S-Line, AMG, M Pack, etc.). 7. Make sure that the vehicle has a full service history - I wouldn't bother buying a car without having this. You never know when the previous owner changed the oil, the filters, the timing belt, etc. 8. Take a look at the VIN number - there are lots of faked (copy) cars in Europe, so pay attention to the serial number. It should look clean, without any weld signs, and it should be straight. Like this (Photo). If you have found a car which matches everything that I said here, then you should definitely purchase it. I hope this video has been helpful, thank you for watching, don't forget to subscribe, and I'll took to you soon. Music Credit http://www.youtube.com/user/CHUKImusic Instrumental produced by Chuki.

Gas vs Diesel - The Real Differences
 
04:08
Video Gear Main Camera - Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Lens - Lumix 25mm ASPH f1.7 - https://amzn.to/2jjdEyr Second Camera - GoPro 5 Session - https://amzn.to/2HFWPs4 Audio Recorder - Zoom H4n Pro - https://amzn.to/2Fvyfs0 Condenser Microphone - Audio Technica AT2020 - https://amzn.to/2rbTryZ Headphones - Audio Technica M50x - https://amzn.to/2HJFfU6 Microphone Arm - Neewer - https://amzn.to/2HZRUFN Music Credit - Epidemic Sound Number 0: Combustion type - The Diesel engine uses high compression to autoignite the fuel, while gasoline uses a spark plug to ignite the air-fuel mixture. Number 1: Efficiency - Modern Diesel engines have up to 45% efficiency, which make them excellent for transporting goods. Most of you think that Gasoline engines are inefficient, but you’re right and wrong at the same time. Older generation gas engines were inefficient - around 25% efficiency compared to a Diesel’s 40-45%. However, engine technology has advanced a lot, and now you can see gas engines with direct injection and a high compression ratio that consume… much like a Diesel. Engines like the 2.0L from Mazda with a 14 compression ratio, engines like the BMW 523i with a 12 compression ratio, engines like the 1.2 used on the Suzuki Baleno, which has an average fuel consumption of just 4.2L per 100km. If you really want a gasoline engine, but you’re afraid that it’s inefficient, wait a second. You are misinformed. Number 2: Weight - a Diesel engine is much heavier compared to a gasoline one. Number 3: A Gasoline engine can reach higher rpms compared to a Diesel engine. Modern gasoline engines which are naturally aspirated, can reach up to 9000 rpm. If they’re turbocharged, around 7500 rpm. Well, you can make it go higher than that, but it’s risky. Diesel engines can now reach up to 5500 rpm, but they work best between 2000 and 4000 rpm. Unless we’re talking about trucks which work best between 800 and 1500 rpm, but that’s a different type of Diesel engine. Number 4: Particulate Filters - ALL Diesel engines manufactured today have particulate or particle filters. The reason why gasoline engines don’t have this is because they emit 44 times less particulates compared to a Diesel engine. So… there’s no need for one. If you don’t know what a particle filter is, check out my videos on this topic. The main problem with the DPF is that it’s over $2000 to replace, it has a lifetime of around 200,000km and change it on time, you might kill the turbo. Number 5: Emissions - a Diesel engine, unfortunately is more pollutant than a gasoline engine. Lots of harmful gases, especially Nitrous Oxides (N0x), particles, carbon black smoke, and ash. That’s why Euro6 Diesel engines must be equipped with a DPF and a AdBlue system. Number 6: Cold start - 20 years ago, having a Diesel engine was a pain when it came to extreme temperatures. Right now, this isn’t an issue anymore, we have common rail technology with high injection pressures, up to 2500 atmospheres, and cold starting a Diesel at -30C is effortless if you have all your glow plugs functional. Number 7 - Reliability - Modern Diesel engines can last anywhere between 500 to 1M km on one engine. We can’t say the same for gasoline engines where we can expect anywhere from 200 to 500k. Number 8 - Maintenance is much more expensive with a Diesel engine compared to a gasoline one. It’s more than double in some cases. So, what you save from fuel with your 45% efficiency, you will spend on expensive parts, DPFs, turbochargers, injectors and other components. Number 9 - Vibrations & Noise - without a doubt, if you’re looking for a silent drive, gasoline is the answer. Even if modern diesel engines are now better than ever, it still can’t be as smooth and silent as a gasoline engine. Number 10 - When you purchase a brand new car with a Diesel engine, you will need to pay 5 to 20% more. So, Diesel engines are more expensive than gas ones, so take this into consideration as well. Number 11: A Diesel engine is dead without a turbo, a gasoline engine is not. Gas engines have a lot more potential when it comes to high power outputs. That’s why the fastest cars in the world don’t have Diesel engines. Among the powerful Diesel engines used on a production car which is not a truck, we have the 6.0L Twin Turbo Diesel engine used on the Audi Q7 - 500HP and 1000Nm of torque. That’s a lot.

Do We Really Need AWD?

Video Gear Main Camera - Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Lens - Lumix 25mm ASPH f1.7 - https://amzn.to/2jjdEyr Second Camera - GoPro 5 Session - https://amzn.to/2HFWPs4 Audio Recorder - Zoom H4n Pro - https://amzn.to/2Fvyfs0 Condenser Microphone - Audio Technica AT2020 - https://amzn.to/2rbTryZ Headphones - Audio Technica M50x - https://amzn.to/2HJFfU6 Microphone Arm - Neewer - https://amzn.to/2HZRUFN Credits: Intro - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tglqbIWY8DY Music - Epidemic Sound Having AWD on your car is awesome. It makes everything easier. But is it worth it? Watch this video till the end to find out, and by the way, if it's your first time here and you would like to learn more about cars, then you should consider subscribing. FWD cars tend to understeer. RWD cars tend to oversteer and AWD theoretically speaking has a neutral behaviour. Just in theory. In reality it oversteers or understeers a bit, depending how the AWD system is designed. For example, in an Audi A3 with Quattro Haldex, the car uses the front axle for most of the traction. When needed, the rear axle comes to help, so the A3 will have an understeering behaviour. On FWD cars, you can't have more than 300hp and you can't make a car accelerate faster than 5 seconds. It's just... physics and a lot of wheel spin. In RWD cars we can have up to 600hp and acceleration is a little better. There are some exceptions though, like the Dodge Challenger Demon with 840HP which accelerates in 2 seconds, but that car is specifically designed for drag racing. AWD is the fastest. That's why Bugatti has put 1500HP on the Chiron. So, as a quick summary, having AWD will help you accelerate faster, especially in extreme weather conditions, lateral acceleration is improved, and the overall handling of the car is better. There are a few downsides though - the AWD system is more complex, it needs proper maintenance, fuel consumption increases, and it makes the car heavier. So, as a whole, to own an AWD car will cost you... another 3L for every 100km. So around 400 euros if you live in Europe and slightly less if you live in another region where gas is cheaper.

12 Things To Check Before Buying a Used Car
 
08:39
You should definitely watch this video if you are planning to buy a used car. Learn exactly what you need to check. Video Gear Main Camera - Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Lens - Lumix 25mm ASPH f1.7 - https://amzn.to/2jjdEyr Second Camera - GoPro 5 Session - https://amzn.to/2HFWPs4 Audio Recorder - Zoom H4n Pro - https://amzn.to/2Fvyfs0 Condenser Microphone - Audio Technica AT2020 - https://amzn.to/2rbTryZ Headphones - Audio Technica M50x - https://amzn.to/2HJFfU6 Microphone Arm - Neewer - https://amzn.to/2HZRUFN Music - Epidemic Sound - Jack Elphick Pop Nr 20 12 Things To Check Before You Buy a Used Car Breakdown 1. Paint & Scratches - Do not look at the car at night. You won't see a thing. If there are minor scratches, no problem, it's not brand new, but, look for repainted elements. That indicates rust or worse, the car was involved in an accident. 2. Check the serial numbers. I don't know about you guys in the United States, but for me, as a MOT tester in Europe, the first thing that I do as an Inspector I check the serial numbers - VIN, engine code, and documents. This is important to see if the car has been stolen. You can cut the VIN and you can weld a different VIN. That means that you have a different car, or, it's stolen. Put it simple. Believe it or not, I have actually seen a few cases. 3. Do some research! - before you decide what car you want, do some research. Ask someone who has the car that you want, google, look on YouTube, and the best place to learn more about frequent problems is to go on a car forum. Kindly ask someone there to help you out with some answers. 4. Leaks - make sure that there are no oil leaks, antifreeze leaks, AC leaks, brake fluid leaks. If there are, it means that the car has serious mileage and serious problems. Well... not everytime, but most of the times. 5. Keys - make sure that the seller gives you both keys. I worked at Suzuki for a few months, and every brand new car, comes with 2 keys. If the owner has only 1 and you want to make another copy, it will cost you around $200 to make one. And this price is pretty much the same whether you have a cheap Suzuki or a BMW. Pretty expensive. 6. Check vehicle history - make sure that the owner has a complete service history of the car. Was the engine oil changed on time? Was the timing belt changed on time? Brake pads? Brake fluids? Other parts? Everything needs to be written there. If the car doesn't have this, buy it only if it's super cheap and you shouldn't care. If the car that you want to buy is worth $1500, you don't really need a service history, just make sure that it still works fine and you're good. 7. Number of owners - I don't know how other people judge a car, but if I want to buy a BMW from 2012 for example and I see that the car has like 7 owners in 5 years... something has to be wrong there. A hidden flaw, a hidden problem. Why is everyone selling it? 8. Here's a professional power tip - run a MOT test - It's just $20 in Romania and probably less than $50 in any place around the globe. By running a complete MOT test, you will know if the car has any mechanical problem, how the emissions are and this is really important nowadays. Plus, if the car fails the emissions test, it can suggest that the engine has problems, the catalyst has problems, the DPF has problems or it was deleted, and you don't want that, and the list goes on. If the car that you want to buy, fails the MOT test, that's really, really BAD. You will also know how the brakes are, if there's any imbalance between the wheels, if the brake calipers work properly, etc. 9. Run a full OBD diagnosis. Run a complete scan. The most important parts are: Engine Faults, Brake Faults and Airbag Faults, but you should run a complete scan, especially if you want a newer car. The car should have zero faults or at least, to have minor ones. 10. Make sure that everything works - lights, buttons, mirrors, music, handbrake, everything. 11. Take a look at the fluids - engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, check the battery if it's in good condition, and also the alternator if it puts out between 13.8 and 14.6V. 12. Testdrive the car - listen to any sound or noise. Make sure that the steering wheel is straight, the alignment of the wheels is good, the tires are good, no bearing sounds, no bushing sounds, no nothing. If you love how the car handles and it's in good condition, it means that you should buy it.

BMW 530D F10 Automatic Review | POV | Acceleration 0-100km/h

This car is the perfect combination between sport, features, luxury, performance, and reliability. It's super comfortable, but it can be aggressive and fast at the same time. The suspension is adaptive, the transmission is super quick, and the car looks wicked. It's one of my favourite BMW models. I'm not a big fan of Diesel engines, but this 3.0L Inline 6 is awesome. It packs 258HP and 560Nm. 0 to 100km/h in 6 seconds flat. It sounds good, it feels good, and it's fuel efficient. Steering is sharp, everything is smooth, and most of the controls are oriented towards the driver. This car is equipped with 18" wheels with winter tires, but you can also have 19" or 20" wheels. The interior is spacious, it's luxurious, you can go on a long journey without a problem. I love the seats, they're sporty and comfortable at the same time. Lots of ornaments, lots of places to deposit stuff, it's nice and practical. If you want to go fast and drive aggressive, you can, if you want to sit chill and go on a long journey, you can without getting too tired, that's what I love about this car. You can drive it how you want. Fuel economy is excellent, throttle response is excellent, especially in sport plus, vehicle stability and handling is also excellent, especially for the size of this car. What I love at BMW is that you have a detailed vehicle status which tells you exactly what to change and when to change - engine oil, brake pads, brake fluid, vehicle inspection, exhaust, tire pressure. Basically, you have your mechanic with you. Now, what I don't like about this car - maintenance is pretty expensive, and it's not a flagship BMW, it's in the mid range. It's quite heavy, and if you're planning to purchase a BMW 5 Series F10, do not get it with a 2.0L engine. It sucks. Most BMW owners are saying the same thing. A 2.0L engine is way to small for the size of this car. You can get one like the one I'm driving to day at around 17,000 euros. Would I buy one? I would probably buy a 523i or a 530i. If you travel a lot, and you want a reliable, luxurious, fast limousine, this car is for you. You can even get it with AWD and it's even more practical. The 3.0L Diesel engine is super reliable, so get one without worrying too much.

The Purpose of a Turbocharger
 
06:13
*Support 99Vehicles TV - https://www.paypal.me/99VehiclesTV ***Gear Used (Affiliate)*** Panasonic DMC G7 - http://amzn.to/2vQ28li Rode SmartLav+ - http://amzn.to/2fWK5o0 iPhone 6S - http://amzn.to/2x2VxlT Music Credit - Chuki Beats - Music - https://www.youtube.com/user/CHUKImusic The Purpose Of a Turbocharger The purpose of a turbocharger is to reuse the hot pressurised exhaust gases to move a compressor (or a turbine) to increase the engine's overall performance. Before we get to a breakdown of the process, we need to initially understand how things work: We want to increase power and torque. OK. To do that, we need to burn more fuel. What are the options: 1. We increase engine size. 2. We increase the compression ratio, but this is limited pretty limited, especially in gasoline engines. If we increase it too much, we experience engine knocking or auto-ignition. 3. We turbocharge or supercharge the engine. In this way, we force air into the cylinder. As you would imagine, doing all of these at the same time will give us the best possible performance. Not let's get into the turbo stuff. So here's the breakdown of the process: #1: The exhaust gases go through the turbine and the other side of the turbo forces more air into the cylinder. Before we actually get more exhaust gases to move the turbine and to increase the pressure of the air inside the cylinder, we will experience turbo lag. It's normal to be that way. #2: More air means more oxygen. More oxygen means that you can burn more fuel. More fuel burnt per cycle means that power and torque increase dramatically. The optimum air-fuel ratio is around 14:1 which means - out of 15 parts, 14 are air and 1 is fuel. In engineering, the exact amount of air required to burn a specific quantity of fuel is called stoichiometric combustion or lambda = 1,00 In the real world, we use more air than we actually need. Lambda is around 1.05 to 1.1 #3: By turbocharging the engine, we obtain more power and more torque, so we significantly increase performance without sacrificing reliability too much. I mean, it does, but it's manageable. #4: Temperature and pressure inside the cylinder increase, so we need better materials for the engine parts - crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods, bolts, cylinder blocks, valves. #5: Air is denser (space between molecules is smaller) when it's cooler, so to introduce even more air into the cylinder, we need to provide fresh cool air. How we do that? We add an intercooler. 90% of turbocharged vehicles have this. Some older models didn't, but newer ones are all equipped with this feature. #6: Boost comes after at least 1500rpm and the maximum boost comes at full throttle. When we release the acceleration pedal, we cut off the fuel, so the pressure from the turbo is eliminated through a wastegate. That's what causes those awesome turbo sounds. #7: Turbocharged engines can be tuned to insane amounts of power. There are custom race cars with 2.0L turbocharged engines which have more than 1000hp. Well, reliability is compromised, but you will never obtain that performance in a naturally aspirated engine. #8: Not only that turbochargers increase performance, but they also reduce fuel consumption. They're more efficient than naturally aspirated ones, they're also more efficient than superchargers as well. And that's it. That's why turbochargers are used. And here are some cool facts: we can now obtain over 150hp per litre while also having a pretty reliable engine. While I don't agree with small turbocharged inline3 engines, they're pretty cheap to manufacture, they're efficient, and it serves us well. For the average driver who just needs to go from A to B, from home to work and back home, they're perfect. For us, car fanatics, we like big engines, with 1 or more turbochargers, with hundreds of horse powers. CREDITS: NEVER DRIVE ALONE - YouTube Channel 40 PERFORM - YouTube Channel CHUKI Beats

What may get damaged after 8 to 12 years are the batteries which are expensive, but they have a large lifespan, so you shouldn't be worrying about that at the moment. Now let's talk about money. I will compare the maintenance costs for a Tesla and for a conventional car over a 5 year timeframe. Every conventional car needs what I'm writing here and these are just average prices, if you have an expensive limousine or a supercar, prices will significantly increase. If you don't have a brand new car, expect to replace some of the following components - clutch, injectors, turbocharger, fuel pump, water pump, gaskets, a battery or a starter motor. So, the results are as they follow: To drive a brand new Tesla for 10,000km you need: $720 / year of which only $250 are required for fuel or electricity. Now here's a thing - if you would install solar panels with a power output of 1.3 kW, you would save those $250 for fuel each year. The solar panel system would cost you around $2,500, and guess what? Even Tesla themselves are selling solar tiles for your home, so if you buy the car and the solar panels, you might get a great offer. Also, in most countries the tax for pollution, emissions or whatever you may call it is zero. In Romania it's zero and in other European countries it's zero as well. Insurance is pretty much the same as for any regular car with the same power - 258 HP. Now let's move to conventional cars which have different costs of running. If we take the average fuel consumption around the world, we need $4,800 or $960/year, but only if the car is new. If anything else breaks, you will need to pay extra. If your car is a second hand one and you have over 200,000km onboard, expect to pay double the price or even more, especially if it's a Diesel. The DPF alone costs $2,000. This price is available for the United States, where gasoline is cheaper than in Europe. In the US, the cost per litre is around $0.65, whereas in Europe the average price is around $1.30, so exactly double the price. In Europe, the conventional car would cost you around $1,560/ year or $7,800 in 5 years. If you have an engine with 258 horsepower or even more and we take an average fuel consumption of 15L/100km you would need $1,290 per year in the United States or $2,180 per year in Europe. Now, to be honest, in Europe, the average fuel consumption is around 7L/100km or even lower, so you need around $1,180 per year, but keep in mind this: It won't be as fast as a Tesla and luxurious as a Tesla. You also need to pay a tax for pollution, at least in the UK or in Romania. The average cost is around $300 / year and in more expensive European countries, it's much more expensive. In a Tesla that cost is zero. Now let's make a more realistic comparison. The Tesla Model S has 700HP and it's AWD. It's faster than the Lamborghini Huracan from 0 to 60mph, so let's compare these two. It's not fair to compare a powerful electric car to a standard inline 4 conventional car with 100hp. So here we go: The Huracan needs around $25,000 / year - which includes maintenance, fuel, taxes, and insurance, whereas the Model S needs just... $2,250. It's just... 11 times cheaper to drive a Model S than a Huracan, and guess - zero emissions. Now I have to admit... you can't reach 340km/h in the Tesla like you can in a Huracan, and after 150km/h the Lambo takes the lead. But... you can't summon your Huracan to pick you up, so...

Fiat Tipo 2017 1.3D Review & POV

An overall clean look, I would say that it looks a little aggressive, just a little bit, it's spacious, packed with everything that the average driver needs. At only 14,000 euros, this car offers a lot - it has an excellent fuel consumption - I averaged around 5.8L/100km while I test drove it, and you could even achieve a fuel consumption of 3.5L/100km at around 80km/h, which is almost as good as a Toyota Prius. The transmission has 5 gears, it shifts really well. I have driven other similar new cars, and the Fiat Tipo exceeded my expectations for the transmission, and it's not a sports car. Steering is a little bit chubby, no feedback, it's not sharp, but it's fine. You'll get used to it sooner or later. I've driven budget cars with much better steering. In terms of features, this car has bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, ABS and ESP, 4 airbags, commands on the steering wheel, aux-in and usb connectivity for music, adjustable seats and steering wheel, electric mirrors, and you can add a lot more to it, but the overall price for the car will significantly increase. This car can easily carry 4 adults and some luggage, even if the engine is pretty small. The worst thing in this car is the turbo lag. Having a tiny turbocharged diesel engine on this kind of car results in a lot of lag. Most turbocharged engines have lag, but this car has around 1.5s delay before the turbo kicks in. So don't count too much on it when it comes to short sprints. The trunk is friendly and you can travel pretty much everywhere with this car. In the rear, passengers have plenty of knee and headroom, nothing to complain here. The quality of the materials aren't the best ones in the world - there's a tone of hard plastic everywhere in the interior, but hey, it's a budget family car. I talked to people who actually bought this car, and after 100,000 km in less than 2 years, they didn't experience any sort of technical issues, so this engine is reliable. Do the regular service checks on time, and you'll be just fine. The key feels premium, sturdy, it looks a lot better than I expected. The Fiat Tipo features ventilated discs on the front axle, and drums on the rear axle. It also comes with 15" alloy wheels which look nice. It would have looked better with 16", but you can live with 15" in wheels no problem. What I really, really like at this car is the auto revmatch feature - if you release the clutch at standstill without accelerating, the engine will rev itself at 1100rpm. You probably didn't know that it isn't recommended to start from standstill without accelerating, you will damage the flywheel overtime, but don't worry, Fiat took care of that for you. I didn't expect to see this feature on a budget car, honestly, so well done Fiat. Suspension is not too soft, and not too sturdy. It's just perfect. It isn't adjustable, so in my opinion, the manufacturer chose the perfect balance between toughness and softness. It has a MacPherson suspension on the front, and a semi-independent beam on the rear. If I had to buy a car like this, I would save more cash to get the 1.6 Diesel or the 1.4 turbocharged gasoline engine. Pay close attention how you drive this car, because it has a DPF and it requires long drives on the highway. Fiat could have made some small improvements on this model, but overall, it's not bad at all. So this is my review of the Fiat Tipo - if you have any questions or anything else to add, please feel free to write in the comment section below, thank you for watching, don't forget to subscribe if you haven't already, and I'll talk to you guys, in the next one.
