    Well it's just too much for what I'm used to. We usually get 100KM on 5L. But again, that's a V8, not a 1.6 Diesel Volkswagen. Lol.

    How much does a car like that costs? Does it count as an old-timer?
    Depends on what condition it's in, and what the seller is asking for it. Yes, here in Florida, anything over 30 years old qualifies for an "antique" plate/tag.
    Checked what car this Chrysler is. 5,3m long? That's a boat Are you doing any tuning on the engine, 120-130 doesn't seem like a lot. Also how is RX-8 doing?
    the rx8 is gone.. needed an engine, plus paint job, new tires, brakes, etc so I sold it and decided to buy this classic American made car with an engine that I know how to work on.. yes, this is a luxury car, but the 318 can be built to put out much more horsepower with tons of performance parts available on the market.

    Another way of putting the whole horsepower thing into perspective; the same model year Ford Mustang (1980) with the 302 V8 (5.0 liter) put out exactly the same amount = 120 horsepower.

    Ed that thing is huge! I haven't seen a car that big for a long time. I knew a few people with cars like that.

    You can fit a large family in there and still have room for a hot tub...

    Enjoy! Not my kind of car but as long as you're happy. :)

    With car that big you would be toast over here. Anything over 4,5m is pain around town. Looks kind of cool though :D

    With Australia as well as Canada and USA you need to contact the university you wish to attend to see if you meet the requirements for the course you plan to study.
    Yeah, I got that one, it's all a bit weird to me, requirements aren't specified on the site.

    Could you give me those links about studying in Australia you once posted here? Can't remember any of them.

    Man it looks great. I always liked those old American cars. Maybe I've already said this, but the car I wish to own is definitely Plymouth Baracuda. It's just pure perfection.

    Yesterday was worth it but I feel outside of myself today. Woke up with legs that felt like cement along with feeling light headed.

    Feeling a little better now but after the fact, it had me thinking about the silly stuff that I choose to put energy into.

    Here's a thread I started over at Android Central in response to a request for a writeup on analogue gear, not specifically related to use with Android devices: My adventures in analogue gear (turntables, vinyl LPs, valve amps, and more) - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    Please check it out if you're more interested in how I listen to music or why I'm buying all those vinyl LPs.

    I'll give you more than links. :P

    First thing to know about Australia is that it's a very expensive place to live. The cost of living is very high.

    The school year is completely different than in Europe. It runs from Feb to Dec (with several breaks). Hottest months are typically Dec, Jan and Feb.

    Next is that universities are similar to US in pricing in that you pay more for 'prestige' universities of which there are several. You'll also pay the full cost of the course being an international student and you won't get any breaks whatsoever. They will treat you a bit nicer simply because you're paying more. Local students get subsidies.

    There are universities in smaller towns but you may find it a bit boring or possibly have difficulties with the locals. Just stating the truth. In small towns you may need a car more than in a city. Public transportation in small towns is not that great.

    So the thing you need to do is find a university. Majority of universities (all?) have an 'International students' section on their website. It explains the process of applying for a a course and getting the visa.

    Here's an example - Queensland University of Technology or QUT (yeah I have tendency to put an I after the U as well)...

    https://www.qut.edu.au/ - you'll notice the International Students tab at the top. Use that as a starting point.

    You might find that your country isn't listed to get the requirement details so you'll have to contact the university directly. Your country probably isn't the only one not listed so don't fret about it. These universities are going by their typical student intake.

    You should keep in mind the name of the course you want to apply for in the EU will probably be different or might not exist at all.

    The way the system works is that you apply for a course through the university. Discussing everything with them so that you meet requirements and so on. They'll send you a letter of offer and then you apply for your visa. You cannot apply for a visa until you get your letter of offer from the university.

    Here's the link to the visa infromation - Studying in Australia | australia.gov.au

    Also you have the ability to work 20 hours a week (if you wish) - https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Stud/...t-visa-holders

    What I would suggest is that you sort out where you want to live first (I can offer suggestions based on your desires). Find a university, find the course, contact the university get the offer and then get a visa.

    I didn't go through the whole visa information but I noticed the cost is $550 AUD. Also, I believe you'll need medical insurance and you'll need to have a medical check of some sort. Also an IELTS English language score. All at your expense of course. :)

    One last thing.

    There are two levels of further education in Australia. To avoid confusion, there is TAFE - Technical And Further Education (basically technical college) and then University. I assume you're after universities and that's what you should be looking for.

    Less than a day battery life. Very poor compared to what my P9 achieves in the same usage pattern.

    Basemark OS II figures were surprisingly low. I'm now trying to use this for my light business work, basically office work, no development which we all know it's not capable of.

    That's interesting that you are having issues with the battery life. I have heard that x3 has great battery life from multiple people. I hope that things will improve for you.

    And he needs to remember not to skull classes, especially if he goes abroad to study. Don't want to mess up your living arrangements because of that as people have less sympathy abroad than in your home country.
