BMW Manual Transmission – Around For Another Decade

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 03, 2018

It appears the brand’s M4 will be the only model to take the manual transmission torch into its final days. BMW says the manual transmission will be around for another decade. Being one of the favorite driver-focused cars in the market, BMW is committed to making a car that suits a businessperson. We buy cars of any brand, so if you want to sell your car quick, you can get an instant car offer from us, giving cars a befitting gearbox has always been the tradition of the automaker. BMW exhibited their upcoming G20 platform placing less priority on a manual transmission for their upcoming cars. But Road and Track engineers said people purchasing M cars for at minimum the next decade shouldn’t worry about this development. BMW's development chief, Klaus Fröhlich – BMW-veteran, discussed the future of BMW M cars manual transmission at the Los Angeles Auto Show. He announced the continuation of BMW's current six-speed manual transmission into the next generation M4, Fröhlich considers the M4 to be the "fortress" of BMW’s manual transmission.

"Honestly, the pure engineering answer is, you're much faster with paddles and an automatic transmission," Fröhlich told Road and Track at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. "They're very precise and sporty. Especially on the Nurburgring, you are much better in control when you're not taking one hand away [to shift]. I think, in the overall portfolio, manuals will disappear. But I think M4 should be the fortress of manual. So the last manual transmission which will die, it should die in an M4, as late as possible. That's my view."

Fröhlich accepts the flappy-paddle automatic gearbox is faster around the track, and admits the BMW’s niche market that has been and is built focused on very specific platform defining the M3 and M4 legacy – putting the power down to the rear wheels is the inline-six with a manual gearbox and a front-engine. Fröhlich says, the next generation M4 with a front-engine, which will be in production through 2027 or 2028, will have the same featured drivetrain as its predecessors. We hope this is the case as BMW tagged the M4 “Drift Machine”

Sadly, with the limitation in demand of three pedal M-cars that lashes out lots of torque, BMW isn't spending more in a new manual transmission at the moment. It’s very costly for the dependable and desired power output of a manual transmission Considering the cost of conducting a research and a new transmission design BMW feels she won't make a profit. "Honestly, you have a problem with manuals," Fröhlich continued later in the conversation. "Because we have these turbocharged engines with 600 N-m of torque, to develop such a high-torque manual transmission for such a small volume isn't profitable at all. So I tried to prolong the lifetime of the manuals, but we can't invest in developing a new manual transmission. No transmission partner will do that with us. So we are evolving our existing manuals as long as possible."

Fröhlich is a strict principled man, In the previous month, he lashed out on journalists proclaiming the E46 was the last "real" BMW the automaker produced. Fröhlich also supports keeping both rear-wheel-drive platforms and manual transmission alive for so long in favor of all-wheel-drive and automatic; but after the next generation M4, both coveted features may disappear and simply represent Fröhlich’s legacy at BMW.

BMW has gone on record we can look for the manual transmission to be around for at least another decade. Are you looking to upgrade to another 6-speed manual shift?

Do You Know Why Tires Are Black?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Just so you know, we buy cars even if the tires are purple… well, maybe we’re just lucky tires are black. Regardless, if your tires are purple, green, yellow, or blue ask us if you can sell your car to us. No matter the color, we’ll still give you a high instant cash offer. The question up top though, is do you know why tires are black? Here’s a tidbit of info you may not know or never really noticed on classics, tires were white up until around WWI.

CarBuyerUSA - Sell Your Car

According to Michelin Tire, “Original tires had a lighter shade because of the natural color of rubber.” Somewhere in 1917, fine manufactured soot called carbon black began being added to the rubber compound resulting in large increase in wear resistance, and Michelin launched its first black tires. They called them “Universal Tread Covers” and used “all roads and all weather” as their advertisement slogan. Obviously, an increase in wear resistance increase tire longevity. Per Jack Koenig, award-winning chemical engineer, a tire without carbon black in the mix would get under 5,000 miles. I don’t think anyone would buy tires with that expectation. Another tidbit of information about carbon black is it’s about twenty-five to thirty percent of used tires composition today, and to boot in addition to added wear resistance, it also improves general road handling and grip, and aids in protecting a tire from harmful UV rays that cause cracking.

Though it’s not clear how much WWI influenced black tires, the fact remains it’s the time when zinc oxide was out carbon black was in.

Ok, now that you know why tires are black, let’s talk how we can get you to sell your car quick to us. It’s fast. It’s safe. It’s easy. Just fill out our short form, wait as little as 20-seconds get a HIGH INSTANT CASH OFFER, and when you like it… we buy cars and we put cash in your bank.

How to Fix 6 Mistakes Every Driver Makes

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 20, 2018

We hate to say it, but for years you may have been making these common mistakes, every driver is guilty of them. Being in this business where we buy cars inherently comes with sharing important information to drivers. We’re not here just so we can entice you to get an instant cash offer and sell your car to us. We buy cars for a business but definitely want you to be safe too so we’ve pulled together a check list of sorts for you on how to fix mistakes you may be making.


Incorrect Use - Ventilation Recirculation Button Slows Down De-Fogging Windows

In the colder months, don’t use this button. It will take longer to de-fog the windows. (For hotter months, using this button will allow your car air conditioner to cool faster.)


Not Engaging the Parking Brake On with Automatics

You may think the parking brake is just for a standard transmission, but think again. Vehicles are heavy and should always be used when parking on a hill to lessen the stress on an automatic transmission. Regardless of the transmission type in your car, it’s a good habit to always engage the parking brake.


When In Traffic Not Allowing 3-4 Feet of Space Between You and The Car In Front Of You

You never know when the car in front of you will breakdown and you’ll need room to maneuver around. There’s also the possibility a driver coming up from behind you may not stop short of your rear bumper. Leaving space may help keep the car in front of you out of the fender bender.


Not Using the Shortcut Buttons Mounted On the Steering-Wheel

These were not invented for convenience, though they really are convenient, but for safety reasons. Just make a conscious effort to make these buttons a go-to habit and an accident is much more unlikely.


Not Checking the Tires

Does this sound like a simple and silly one to list? Think again. It’s one of the things people ignore. The law in most states requires tires to have at minimum 2/23 of an inch of tread.

You can check this by placing a penny inside the groove of the treads. Make sure Abraham Lincoln’s head is facing you and upside down. If you can see his entire head, you need a new tire(s).


Accepting the Fact and Ignoring You Have a Blind Spot OR Are In A blind Spot!

Drivers OFTEN do not pay attention to this enough or at all. When did so many people stop paying attention to this? I can’t tell you how many times a driver has started to ease on over into my lane. There’s just one problem with this; my car is in the exact spot he’s easing into!

This situation can be a perilous leading to an accident, injury, or worse. Since you really can’t put your faith in the other driver, it’s up to you to be on the defense and ease back a little or move forward ahead of a driver if you think you may be in their blind spot.

And remember this, you must do MORE than glance at your side view mirrors to insure there is no one in YOUR blind spots.

Final Words

Even if you may have been committing these driving no-no’s, it’s never too late to make new habits, and healthy ones at that. Being proactively on guard when driving out on the roads is definitely, how to fix mistakes every driver makes. Even if not all of these in our list feel familiar to you, think about them the next time you hit the road. If any of these are happening, it’s time for a new habit. And remember, you can get an instant cash offer now by simply filling out our short form and sell your car quick. We buy cars the FAST, SAFE, and EASY way and put FAST CASH in your bank!

Tomorrow's Trucks – Faster, Safer, and More Efficient 5G Will Change Their Future

Joseph Coupal - Monday, November 19, 2018

There’s a lot of hype about 5G wireless networks centering on faster speeds for data on laptops and phones, but there’s a slew of devices that stand to benefit from a more quick and robust connection. The cars of tomorrow are set to get in on the action too. We may not be able to purchase cars with 5G yet, but we’re looking forward to it. We buy cars in any condition and give you an instant cash offer that can’t be beat. Don’t believe us? Get your quote now and we’re betting you’ll sell your car quick! How will the faster, safer, and more efficient 5G change tomorrow’s cars? Let’s take a look.

In 2019, major U.S. carriers will be activating their 5G wireless networks… for devices already in existence, and those that will be the next generation for those devices too. What about cars? From the hype online, that’s still a few years away but when it does hit the road, vehicle owners will see benefits similar to a smartphone. Cool, right?

Taking the Web on the Road with You

We’re seeing modern cars of today equipped with some kind of local area Wi-Fi hotspot feature allowing passengers to use their cell phones to share an onboard 4G LTE connection. Let’s face it, LTE is fast, but when the 5G comes along, 4G is old news.

5G’s bandwidth and speed will increase so even all seats in a 7-passenger vehicle will be able to stream different Netflix shows without a glitch. That’s impressive stuff right there.

Cabins featuring the K-Byte and M-Bytes will sport a massive display screen that connects to the Internet in 5G mode! Don’t think automakers won’t be able to give you more with that extra bandwidth. How does more info in that dashboard and rich media sound?

Connecting the car to 5G benefits both the manufacturer and the consumer. They get more data from/about you and you get more things you never knew you needed in a car. What about that connection lag when you attempt to unlock your car with a smartwatch or cell phone? With 5G, it will be ridiculously fast, like instantaneous.

An electric car is a connected car with more cars moving toward electrification in the future. If it’s a plug-in hybrid or a full-battery electric car, Internet capabilities are coming for them. No more smartphone needed to search for those charging stations. Honestly, they’re already connect to the web in some way. By the way, we buy cars operated with gasoline or those running on electric. If you own an electric car, don’t hesitate to get a quote and sell your car to us. We’ll jump on it too!

Autonomy vehicles are already being tested and it won’t be long before we’re all sharing the road with them. You guessed it, these will have 5G available to them too, but can we all say safer?

From Now to the Future

From more commuting entertainment to smarter self-driving vehicles, to more efficiency, we’re coming into what you’ll find as just the tip of an iceberg. The possibilities are limited only to one’s imagination and as we all know, those are endless. cannot wait to purchase our first 5G car, but for now, we buy cars with 4G LTE and those without it. Fill out our short form and in as little as 20-seconds you’ll get an instant cash offer that will be the highest quote you can find. Once you do, and you like it, sell your car quick to us and get cash in your bank FAST, SAFE, and EASY!

History Channel’s ‘American Pickers®’ Find Aerosmith's Original Tour Van

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 12, 2018

© Image: American Pickers (History Channel)

The History Channel’s resent episode of American Pickers’ ®, two hosts – Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz – drive around the U.S. searching barns, land, junkyards, and you name it, buying antiques and “recycling America”. On a recent episode while in western Massachusetts, they came up on Aerosmith’s original tour van, a 1964 International Harvester Metro Van. What a find the 1964 International Harvester Metro Van is! I’m sure the guys in the band dreamed of making it big rolling down the highway, but to actually become an American Icon? Who says dreams don’t come true? Even though we buy cars 2006 and up, I can guarantee you, without hesitation, we would have jumped on this buy! Which btw, you can sell your car quick. Really, we’ll even come get this Metro! Go ahead, check out the instant cash offer we’ll give you.

It all started, when Joe Perry and Tom Hamilton were in the Jam Band, met up with and joined Steven Tyler, Joe Kramer, and Ray Tabano to form Aerosmith. Tabano’s time with the group ended in 1971, when Brad Whitford replaced him. Becoming a Boston favorite put them on the road to hardcore fans and becoming the American Icon they are now. Fast forward to August 2018, and the American Pickers, well, picking.

The find of rock ‘n roll history used to by the band to get from one gig to the next, was found near Chesterfield, a small town 100 miles west of Boston. It’s still filled with awesomeness even though it’s been sitting partially buried in the woods rotting for years. When the land owner purchased the property he’d heard a previous owner had a connection to Aerosmith.

To make a long story short, Wolfe reached out to a The Black Keys band member who sent pictures to Joe Perry who then reached out to Ray Tabano who showed up at the property where the founding member of Aerosmith’s van that started it all sat.

Let’s hope the $25,000 purchase price for the Metro encourages the History Channels’ American Pickers to thoroughly document the restoration and air it for us all. On the chance Aerosmith’s original tour van that kicked off music history in the making is going to just sit for a while, we buy cars and AP… you can sell your car quick to us! As is. We strongly and emphatically encourage you to get an instant cash offer so we can bring this machine back to life!

Toyota to Recall Over 1 Million Automobiles for Fire Risk

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 11, 2018
CarBuyerUSA - Sell Your Car

Toyota has plans to recall over 1 million automobiles worldwide to fix a possible fire risk related to a wiring harness issue. Their recall involves some 192,000 vehicles in the United States; but why go through all the recall hassles when we buy cars? We’ll give you the highest instant cash offer you’ll find anywhere else and then you can sell your car quick to us and skip right past the headaches.

The harness insulation is been worn off at the connection point due to a faulty wiring harness, which is linked to the hybrid power unit of the vehicle as well as the vibrations and accumulation of dirt. As reported by Toyota, an incident was recorded in Japan where the vehicle harness began to smoke due to the short-circuiting. Meaning there's a possibility of an electric short circuit causing the fire. To that effect, vehicles produced in Japan between June 2015 and May 2018 will be called back to fix the problem.

The plug-in hybrid variant of the Prius and the C-HR Crossover are the affected cars, but only the Prius will be recalled in the US market. Reuters reported that about 1.03 million vehicles were recalled and about half of them have been sold in Japan. Toyota has also recalled the Prius on issues related to fuel tank and airbag on different occasions.

Toyota has offered to inspect vehicles in the US free of charge and also replace or apply a protective tape on the harness as the case might be. Toyota will when the recall starts.

Honestly, you seriously don’t need this headache. Contact us and get an instant cash offer in as little as 20-seconds for your vehicle. Yes, we buy cars and we will provide you the highest quote you’ll find anywhere else; then, you can sell your car quick to us and avoid all the trouble encountered in the recall.
