I own two pairs of sneakers but I only ever wear them but once or twice a month. I prefer high heels all day.

Thanks in advance !
It was about someone using liquimoly 10w-60 for their S65.
Although Liquimoly is a great oil, it's viscosity is thicker than Castro/Pennzoil 10w-60 approved by BMW.

About the Belgian taxes in some numbers.
For example...And to give you an idea .

Your salary is $100 USD.
They take instantly $52 USD of it , the other $48 USD is for you (for the moment) this happens before it is on your bank account .
In other words they take 52 % taxes of your salary before you get it in your hands !
But there is more ..
At the end of the year you need to pay taxes on your remaining 48 % of your salary incomes !
Imagine....
On water and electricity consumption it's 6 % of taxes , but like fuel for the cars it's about 64 % .
About car taxes ...
On my car the first time in traffic tax , over here it's called "BIV" .
BIV was 5000 Euro's but now increased to 10000 Euro's , just to put the 4 wheels on the road . ( Permission and registration )
But.... there is also something like the yearly driver tax...
Yes I pay every single year 2000 Euro's yearly driver tax on top of the BIV and is increasing every single year , only to drive on our roads !
When I drive my car for about 10 years...the taxes that I payed are the new price of an ///M3 in the US .
BTW....I payed my car 108000 Euro's , DCT, EDC ect.. , BIV taxes and driver taxes NOT included .
That's why I said ...and more than once on here...

"GOD BLESS AMERICA" !

There are so many G20 size countries which has less taxes than US.
Sadly US has highest corporate taxes. Although this Laffy Daffy curve is 11 yrs old, US corp tax hasn't changed as I know of.

Thank you my friend .
Yes I saw that , and I had also comment in that thread .
It's about that I listen to our S65 engines by video...PM and Email and for people from all over the world .
And it's all about our bearing ticking noises of the S65 because BMW has seriously f@cked up with the bearings of our engines .
In other words...Design flaw born in the previous gen. 10 cyl. engine of the ///M5-6 .
I'm not really happy about that...Think most of us could read that on here and more than once..

I never liked boots until I slipped my dogs into some Ariats. Now they are my dress/dancing shoes. (Dancing is a relative term, but I'm a step up from the home-boy shuffle)

Not sure but think you are talking from "Gerard Depardieu" ?
Gerard Depardieu is an French actor with lots of $$$$$ .
First he wanted to move to Belgium to avoid the French taxes, but he saw quickly that the Belgian taxes are insane too !
That's why he moved to Russia ...And guess what my friend ?
He's best friend right now is Poetin...
And of cours we know why ...

They last forever! I have about 6 pairs of pull up and lace up Ariats. I've been riding 17 years. They are amazing long lasting boots.

Although s85 and s65 bearing problems arelated over hyped, it is always good to be cautious. Keep up the good work! And thanks.

Sure, but then your loved one gets sick, and gets treatment, your kids go to school and have an excellent education with real math taught to them, languages, history of others but your country, you don't see people starving in the streets and fuck it, you go and take a walk for free in any park you can find.

Then you know where all that money went and be like
