      I wouldn't worry about that one bit. Someone would have to get pretty creative to do harm there, and the car was probably monitored around the clock--during the show they're not going to want to miss...

      +1 for consider other cars. It's not as much as some other brands, but for open roof Jeeps there's definitely a Jeep tax due to how popular they are. If you really want a Jeep it might be better to...

      I mean you're right, but it's a 10y/o car in the north east with bent stuff on it so I suspect a torch will be involved. :laugh:

      I doubt that it's totaled.

      I'll guess it needs two wheels, steering rack, inner/outer tie rods on one side, one spindle (you sheared the tie rod mount clean off--impressive), 1+ control arm and...

      Very cool. I've replaced headliners before and never thought to do this. Not gonna lie, I may have to steal your idea next time. :laugh::thumbup:

      I was hoping the answer was Jimny until we got to the crates. This is even better. :thumbup:

      Some big ones have their own space, but I think most employers lease. I did the negotiating with our commercial landlord on a recent build out and tried to get L2 chargers installed, but they really...

      I'll go with '57 Chevy. That looks like an aftermarket taillight where the chrome would go on the fin.
    9. Poll: Yup.

      Yup.

      No problem. In theory, yes, it's kind of like a microwave, but, uh, my stomach isn't as robust as Schrodinger's when it comes to thought experiments on furry friends. As far as a 'hot' end, there...

      Yes, that's a recipe for trouble.



      Wait, Nissan to Toyota? I'm not even a Toyota fan but that's sounding a lot less crazy. :laugh:

      As others have said, you could definitely end up making...

      QFT. L2 has the chance to be for cars what USB/MiniUSB/Lighting/USB-C all rolled into one would be for phones, we just need to make it happen.

      Generally, there's a lot of myths associated with EMF. The word radiation is used, and although dangerous at high power levels, it's not at all like nuclear waste or anything; the radiation is...

      Ultimately it's the same set of equations that the sun uses to transmit solar energy or that we use to transmit TV, Radio, phone data, etc with. In the case of TV they might transmit at 10kW; don't...

      If you don't mind a coupe you should absolutely be looking at M240i's.

      Much cheaper used than M2, more usable with AWD and adjustable suspension, nearly as fun.

      Best time was on a test drive at a BMW dealership. Salesguy was sitting in the back and saw it go down; he didn't miss a beat. "Yeah, we don't really sell those any more." :laugh:

      And grid considerations as well. There's something called Power Factor, which deals with--I kid you not--loss from the [mathematically] imaginary component of power. It requires the power company to...

      Right, but it's charging at, say, ~10x the rate plugged in. :beer:
    19. Poll: Yes, and yes, respectively. It may happen, but it...

      Yes, and yes, respectively. It may happen, but it really shouldn't. Physics mandates that wireless power = loss, period. It's why your phone gets warm sitting on that charging pad. Peak power is also...

      Eh, maybe, but we're talking about window switches and clutch pedals and not how much of a terrible pain it is to sort out which Ferrari key goes to which Ferrari. I'm sure that's a problem some $$...
