I’ll survive. If I start feeling anxious, I’ll just jump in my E53! That always cures any tension I may have.

Well, I used to own one. It caught fire and went up in massive flames on the side of the highway. Sad too, I had just put in fresh control arms and a couple thousand in other odds and ends. The 3.0 gas was nice, and it towed my trailer very well, an absolute beast in the snow. I'm here gathering info so I can build my dream project: a 2005 or 2006 X5 with euro spec diesel, mated to manual tranny. An X5 with three pedals is the dream. I wouldn't own one of these if I DIDN'T live in a snowy state.

I agree! And that’s one of the major reasons I converted mine to a Flex-Fuel vehicle. I refuse to get my dreams smashed by Biden.

I'm always baffled when lawmakers seek change by destroying jobs, in the hopes people will scramble into a better future outcome. Teslas are expensive and electricity is expensive, so you know what guys like me will do? Switch to diesels and use waste vegetable oil as fuel. I can run an old Mercedes 300D or VW 1.9L tdi indefinitely rather than shell out $40K for a subcompact laptop on wheels. My old '96 Passat tdi had an 18 gal tank and averaged 820 miles PER TANK. I easily drove from Michigan to Birmingham AL on a single tank. A few more particulates in the air, but going three times the normal distance is the story missing from the "climate change" lecture (disguised as a "discussion"). Average temperature went up on all the other planets that have magnetic fields. Is that the fault of dinosaur oil too? The newer diesels are even cleaner, running massive break pressures at the injector nozzles for amazing atomization of pre-combustion fuel. Enough rambling for today.
