BMW M5 – Bullet

No scantily clad women, no overtly gratuitous tire smoke – just a 560-horsepower super sedan doing its best impression of a bullet.

I just love the sound of the new BMW M5, they seriously built a scary machine and they brought it nicely together in this video. I think is my favorite color for the BMW M5.

Movie List For The Weekend

It was sort of a movie marathon during Eid, a lot of choices for a nice break during this vacation. Some people are still going with this vacation and very few went back to work the last two days. But below is a nice selection of movies to choose for this weekend, I have been looking forward to seeing 30 Minutes Or Less, looks like a hilarious comedy, can’t wait to see it. Bunraku looks very very interesting, something different, I’m surprised I didn’t hear about it earlier, I’m going to watch Conan even though it didn’t get great reviews.

  • 30 Minutes Or Less
  • Bunraku
  • Conan The Barbarian
  • Carjacked
  • Friends With Benefits
  • Michael Jackson – Life Of An Icon
  • Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes
  • Three Musketeers

2012 BMW M5

Ladies and Gentlemen the beast has been unveiled, so much talk about this machine and at last it has been shown to the masses. The next iteration of a very mean four door sedan. There is something that I find to be very attractive about the M5 from the original version until now and I love that BMW keeps making these aggressive machines, and I especially like it in this color, this blue is probably my favorite color.

The 2012 M5 is about more than mere surface beauty, after all. The sonorous V10 of the last M5 has been traded out for a twin-turbocharged V8 fist. Power is up, with 552 horsepower (the V10 produced 507 hp) coming on at 6,000 rpm – 1,750 rpm lower than the V10. Torque is hugely boosted from 383 pound-feet to 501 lb-ft, which will be great for shoving this car to 60 miles per hour in a reported 4.4 seconds. That’ll route to the rear wheels via a standard dual-clutch transmission, though a proper six-speed stick. The cost of entry is rumored to be around €100,000 in Germany, which is around 39,000 KWD which I’m assuming it will be close to in Kuwait.

Mass Download

DLTV1110S

The last few weeks I haven’t had a chance to sit at the computer and catch up with my tv shows and I was falling back on a few, so late at night before my flight I decided that I’m not going to be sleeping much so might as well go through all my shows and download all that I haven’t downloaded yet. So I took about 30 minutes checking which shows I had and which episodes that I didn’t and proceeded to download them. Luckily for me on Tuesday night at 1 am it didn’t seem like there were a lot of people online and I was downloading between 1100 KB/s to 1230 KB/s which is fantastic, thats on my Qnet connection. Clicked to download all my shows and left it to download before I went to sleep to wake up for my flight the next morning, but before leaving I proceeded to load up my external HD with the shows.

The Real Mach 5

Speed Racer is one those shows that everyone used to love, and every kid wanted to have the Mach 5 and ChimChim the Chimp. With Gotham Garage’s scale replica of the Mach 5, built on a classic Corvette C-4 chassis, and even offers rotating, retractable sawblades and push-button chrome steering wheel you can have that toy. With 345 horsepower this car is no joke and a lot of fun, I honestly wish they built it on the C6 Corvette which is the current generation corvette. But not sure what the price tag of the machine is, but who ever has it is one lucky guy.

Corvette ZR1 Pricing

There is a lot to be said about the Corvette, and now that they are introducing the ZR1 its nothing short of a monster. 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds and pumps out about 638 bhp, I was afraid of the Z06 but this is just on another level. I decided to inquire into the pricing of the machine. It seems there are two packages, the 3ZR and 1ZR, the 3ZR being the more expensive. It is guesstimated that the 3ZR would be at $117’000, the only options available are the color, the rims, and the navigation/sound system. The rest of the car is fully loaded.

I passed by the dealership in Kuwait and this is the information I received.

There is a waiting list of 9 people who are putting money down and it is priced between 31’000 to 37’000 KWD. They aren’t sure yet, but what they do know is that they had an allotment of 8 but it has been reduced to 2 cars, and they pretty much sold.

So I called up Courtesy Chevrolet in California, I know that they are the biggest Corvette Seller on the West Coast. They are receiving an allotment of 10 and they have 7 people on the waiting list. After asking a few questions, he shocked me with a huge mark up, for th 3ZR it is list of a $117’00 and a mark up of $50’00, and you will receive the car by spring of next year, if you want the car this summer then the mark up is $60’000. For a grand total of $177’000 which is roughly 47’790 KWD.

I called up a few other dealership until finding Putnam Chevrolet close to San Francisco and he didn’t mention a mark up on the ZR1. He is expecting the 3ZR to be around $120’000 which is equivalent of 32’400 KWD. They seemed a lot more reasonable then the first one.

I made use of my Skype Phone while making my phone calls, this is a limited production machine and only a few dealerships will be getting it. I called a few that weren’t even getting it, and they sounded depressed when they answered. Whoever is going to be driving this machine will really enjoy it.

XSMG XSR48 Speedboat

I’m not much of a boat person, but I do like being in the water. This boat can be considered a speed demon on the water, the XSR48 Speedboat from XSMG, its a 48-foot boat packing a 2000 bhp two bi-turbo diesel engines, making it a very fast machine with a stablization and propulsion system meant to handle this insane amount of power. No price has been specified but I know this has to be pricy when its out. And the interior is just as mondern and nice as the exterior with all the bells and whistles of modern technology.

Breakfast Drive

Early friday morning, I woke up to my phone ringing and I knew that I had to get up. K, Monichum, and a few others called me to get up, so I called a few other people trying to make sure they wake up as well for a good breakfast. We didn’t know exactly where we were heading, but it was a beautiful day and we had to get up. We decided to meet in the city since we had to pick up a few people and ended up with 7 people, a few wouldn’t wake up to their phones ringing. Met up with K, and we took off to the City to meet up with Monichum and a few other people, then we went to Qurtoba and kidnapped one guy from his home.

As soon as we got going we were flying to Al Koot Mall for a change, we were enjoying our drive and the empty highways. A little street racing was taking place after we filled up the gas tanks down Malik Fahad Highway, it is fun to drive in Kuwait as long as the streets are empty. Our main plan revolved around seeing Ironman that day, we were all looking forward to it. There was also the boat show, but I just wasn’t sure of the dates or when it was opening since it was delayed due to the dust storms.

We go to Al Koot Mall in record time, there were some corners that you couldn’t help but drift through them. The streets of Kuwait are fun as long as its empty, it was pretty cool that day as well so it wasn’t too hot outside. We got to Al Koot and had breakfast at Paul’s cafe since their weren’t too many breakfast places there that we knew off. At that point we were planning our day and what time we were meeting up for the movie and other plans for the night.

2008 Mansory Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Stallone

I am a huge fan of the Ferrari 599, I’m usually not the sports car nut but this machine is something else. Mansory have taken a work of art and turned it into a Master piece. I never thought this machine could be made any better, but I was wrong. They turned it into a supercharged 720 bhp monster with the a unique styling of white, carbon fiber, and red interior. They dropped the weight of this machine, used Ostrich skin for the interior and gave it the most unique look I have ever seen. I would take this supercar over any other supercar any day of the week.

192 GB and counting

I’m on a ridiculous downloading spree, I have spent weeks reorganizing my files and moving things around. Now that I do have some I plan to take full advantage of it. Very soon I shall have one combined network with a load balancer and link aggregator, so I just have to set the policies of the network device and I am good to go.

I am downloading a total of 192 GB right now, and its a combination of 720 p Movies and full anime series that I am missing or looking for. The list can grow a lot faster, but I just want to see how long this will take for my connection to digest, my top speed is 480 Kbps that I have seen but we shall see what happens when I combine the networks. The more space, the more downloads, and the cycle continues.
