It has proven so strong that despite increased competition from American, Japanese, and Korean quarters, the Fortuner has remained a top-of-mind choice in its class. Although the basic shape is carried over from when it first launched, it has remained fairly modern. The conservative design helps it to age gracefully while imbuing it with remarkable road presence. For the most part, it passes for a North American market design, helping it build a good street cred among would-be owners. And although Toyota could have afforded not to change anything, they modernized it with not just one but three refreshes over the decade. The latest one builds up on the last major redesign in by darkening elements such as the alloy wheels and tail lamp cluster. The front fog lamp housing has also been revamped with a new chrome strip adding just the right touch of bright work to the car. Inside is where the biggest change happens to the Fortuner.

Why The 2015 Chevrolet SS Is The Greatest Car No One Is Buying: Opinion Desk

Rightfully so, they wanted to know who their daughter was dating and were pleasantly surprised that she brought home a car guy. Her family was all loyal Ford fans, especially Mustangs, so he passed that part of the test. But he almost failed when they discovered he was a Chevy guy. With a fastback already in his stable, George began scanning the classifieds for the next project.

While thumbing through Hemmings Motor News, he stumbled upon a convertible.

George and Kathy have been married for 32 wonderful Mustang years!

However, this is largely down to its smaller models; in recent years the Mondeo has been squeezed by a shift in the company car market towards premium brands. Is it a viable alternative to these desirable saloons? Six-footers can stretch right out in both the front and the rear. Plus the boot is vast and well shaped, and there are lots of handy storage cubbies between the front seats.

True, the hybrid is available only as a saloon, which means it has a comparatively small boot opening that limits what you can carry. But the other models in the range all have a hatchback-style opening that gives easy access. Some tyre noise enters the car over poorly surfaced roads and the engine in the hybrid gets noisy when you put your foot down. However, the diesels are impressively smooth and few rivals are as good at shutting out wind noise. As an alternative you can issue verbal commands using the standard voice control system, but this is rather limited.

The diesel engine is strong enough to make the feel redundant. And most versions of the car are available with the option of an automatic gearbox. In fact, the only thing that’s tricky with the Mondeo is parking. The optional parking sensors are a must. Charlie Magee Photography If there’s one car that disproves the notion that big family hatchbacks have to be dull to drive, the Ford Mondeo is it.

Paul Berry After building the product for Huffington Post, and owning the product and engineering groups at AOL after we were acquired, it was clear to me there was a huge gap between what the current CMS offering gave the world and what the world needed. Five years later we are at scale, moving the needle and doing to WordPress what Airbnb did to Craigslist. Social and Centralized WordPress, Drupal, and the custom CMS solutions of the world are all independent, non-connected instances that each need to be updated individually.

There are over 87 million instances of WordPress alone in the world, and each security upgrade, feature update, and every other single thing has to be updated for each site individually. By contrast, RebelMouse is a social, centralized platform built to keep up with the speed of the tech giants. Our updates are pushed out to all of our sites at once and sometimes even multiple times a day with content creation tools integrated directly into social APIs.

We can get clients off of clunky CMSs and into the future in a matter of days. We iterate with the times and tell you what’s changing in the world, how we’ve reacted to it, and how it’s built into the updates you get from the platform. Our creative agency team trains your teams or takes on special projects. And it doesn’t take months, it takes hours or days.

We can suck up a WordPress site, optimize its page speed, the user experience, the balance of ads, and how you monetize.


Want to contribute to Orsm? Just click here and do eeeet!! It was Christmas time and the Postman’s favourite time of the year. When he arrived at the first house on his route he was greeted by the whole family, who wished him a ‘Merry Christmas’ and sent him on his way with a tidy gift envelope. At the second house they presented him with a box of fine cigars.

The folks at the third house handed him a selection of terrific fishing hooks, and the folks at the fourth and fifth houses had clubbed together to present him a fishing rod.

In addition, their romance during working hours could not be condoned.

Who else remembers the days when we knew TRA Kyoto for S13s with dish mags and window nets, Kei vans and one hell of a quirky website? Of course, when anything reaches the level of popularity that Rocket Bunny has, there are bound to be those who label it as played out or too mainstream. You are looking at one right now. Rather than building a car designed for sliding, he ended up with a car made for ripping it up at traditional track days. Well, for Quinton it was a simple matter of opportunities.

Under the hood sits a 5. Also adding to the aesthetic factor is the fact the engine bay has been fully tucked by The Speed Syndicate — a Vancouver-based shop which handled the custom fabrication on the car. The V8 exhales through a set of Hooker S13 conversion headers out to a custom-built TSS stainless side-exit exhaust with titanium heat shields. The setup looks pretty gnarly dumping out before the rear tires. As for the drivetrain, the transmission is a stout T56 6-speed and a custom driveshaft feeds to a rear differential with an OS Giken 1.

Gotta make sure all that V8 power gets put down properly! Because Quinton knew the car was going to see serious punishment on track, the year-old Nissan was treated to some heavy upgrades in the safety and rigidity department. TSS stitch-welded critical points on the chassis and fitted a 6-point rollcage, a front crash bar and custom front wheel tubs.

Style Meets Function As mentioned a moment ago, the S13 is indeed sporting Rocket Bunny aero parts — a full V1 wide body conversion to be exact.

2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4×4 Passenger Van Road Trip Review

Rivals in terms of size include the Audi A5 Cabriolet and Mercedes E-class Convertible, while the engine options are limited to two petrol units: Sure enough, it will just about accommodate four adults, provided those in the back are prepared to squish their heads into the soft roof lining, and those in the front slide their seats forwards to yield some knee room. Isofix mounting points in the two rear seats mean it is also possible to clip in a couple of child seats, although be aware that when travelling with the roof down those in the back get blasted by the wind.

Customization marketing is an important and crucial aspect of marketing that many of us forget to take into consideration. Marketers… Published 1 week ago in January 14, By Think Marketing Customization marketing is an important and crucial aspect of marketing that many of us forget to take into consideration.

Cadbury is a British multinational confectionery company wholly owned by American company Mondelez International originally Kraft Foods since Unfortunately, it seems that Dairy Milk may lose some of its strong footing in Egypt after its newest campaign. Dairy Milk jumps out of the box in , so far out that they have flung themselves into space! The chocolate bars have found their way into alien hands.

And we know what happens when aliens visit our planet! The alien symbol aims to send out a message of universal love of the chocolate. One thing is for sure, the custom-made aliens are definitely making a splash on social media, and everyone has their own opinion on the invasion. Cadbury Egypt catches up to global campaign, 2 years later…. With only a few small details changed, and an entire scene cut from the end, the ads are basically identical.

It seems like Cadbury did not invest enough in customization or marketing localization, instead opting to not customize the ad for local consumption. The new key marketing messages are designed to focus genuine acts of kindness and generosity. Watch the new TV campaign first aired on 12 January which marks the same date of launching the aliens campaign in Egypt.

Grip Bunny: A Different Breed Of S13

But over the past few years it has progressively renewed its model range, adding design flair and a measure of sophistication. The latest i20 hatchback has undergone just such a transformation. The fact that even the cheapest model comes with five doors adds to the practicality, making it easy to get kids in and out of the back. Boot space is far more impressive; you should be able to fit most folded baby buggies without having to remove a wheel first.

And it rides with the same sort of aplomb as the VW Polo. This is noticeable from the first speed bump, which it negotiates with quiet pliancy.

It will be replaced by a hanging plant, providing considerable savings in maintenance.

Sure, during your restoration or rebuild you might have stuck some handling springs in or a larger antisway bar; maybe even some urethane bushings in key locations. While these parts certainly do what they claim, they are, more-or-less, Band-Aids on an antiquated suspension that was designed to save Ford money building a large volume of vehicles.

This is one reason why once Carroll Shelby got ahold of the Mustang to build his G. So here we are today, with computer-aided design CAD capabilities, modern shock tuning, high-strength tubular control arms, and more now available to suspension companies looking to improve on a decades-old design—sometimes even completely cutting that old design out of the front structure and replacing it with a better solution.

The front system consists of a bolt-in front crossmember with motor-mount brackets that becomes the pickup points for the tubular lower control arms. AJE can optionally supply spindles, brakes, rack-and-pinion, and more in upgraded kits. Engine mounts are available for small- and big-block V-8, 2. The AJE rear kit includes a bolt-in sub-frame, your choice of fixed or adjustable upper and lower tubular control arms, and a bolt-in tubular antisway bar.

This Mini Sub-Frame utilizes new tubular lower A-arms that replace the stock lower control arm and strut rod assemblies. Best of all, CPP parts are guaranteed for life. The upper crossmember stiffens the rear framerail structure and the included Panhard bar keeps lateral axle loads in check during hard cornering. The QuadraLink systems include an antisway bar, coilover shocks, and will clear up to 3-inch exhaust systems. The subframe bolts into the chassis and features tubular lower control arms, bolt-on steering arms, coilover conversion parts for stock Mustang struts, and upper strut mounts.
