Weissbier by broettonavarro
Weissbier
BMW M5, made by Uni Fortune.
1:64 scale model.

I've been drinking some different types of beer lately.
So far, I've noticed a preference of mine towards stout and dark lager.

I've been looking for some accessories and new items for my car, the 2015 Nissan March 1.6 S.
First thing that I'd like to get is a set of 16" tires/alloy wheels.
I thought it would be simple: go to a wheel store and ask them "Can I have some 16" wheels?"

At the first store I visited, I was told that 16" wheels are expensive, and that they didn't have a single set of 16" wheels to sell.
I was surprised to hear that. I left the store and went to a different store.

I looked at the wheels they had displayed. Most of them didn't attract my attention. Also, no one came to me, asking what I was looking for. And I did find weird the fact that most wheels there were 15" or 17". Only one set of 16" there.
I left the place, and tried a third different store.

At the third store, a salesman told me "16" wheels are, not only hard to find, but also more expensive than 17" or 15" wheels. Sorry, but we don't have what you're looking for."

Why?

I then decided to check on the internet. Maybe I could find a great deal on some nice wheels.
...surprise, surprise, it's almost impossible to find a set of 16" wheels.
The -few- ones I found don't attract me.
Annnnd 16" wheels really tend to cost more than 17" wheels.

What's the point?

BTW this is the kind of wheel I'm thinking about for the March: www.guaporepneus.com.br/rodas/…

2015 Nissan March 1.6 S

We had our first big road trip, took place last week.
Approx. a thousand miles. From Uberlândia to Apucarana, and Apucarana back to Uberlândia.
www.google.com.br/maps/dir/Ube…

Day and night. Sun and rain. Winding roads and endless straights. Uphill now, downhill then. Dense traffic and desert roads.
It's a good way to to know your car better, this kind of trip. 

And yes, the March 1.6 is quite fun on the road.

Riders on the Storm

Said endurance consists on approx. 8 hours driving ~780kms to Apucarana, and driving another ~780kms back to Uberlândia.

Haha obrigado atrasado então! =D

Dirigir num evento de hillclimb (ou qualquer espécie de track day) é uma vontade que tenho faz anos....

Uma diferença que percebi entre o March e o Gol:  o VW tinha um comportamento mais substerçante do que o March. Dava pra sentir o Golzinho puxar de frente em algumas curvas, enquanto que nas mesma situações o Nissan não dá sinais de que vai sair de frente. Ainda estou para descobrir se o March realmente tem bem mais aderência do que o Volks.... ou se o March simplesmente se torna substerçante de forma súbita, sem avisar o motorista.

Sempre bom ter uma serra por perto...:lol:


Possivelmente o March tem mais aderência...pneus mais modernos, motor transversal, que tem distribuição de peso melhor no eixo dianteiro, o próprio motor pode ser mais leve (não lembro se é bloco em alumínio ou ferro)...de qq forma, acredito que o March possa impressionar/assustar os mais desavisados numa estrada sinuosa, devido ao seu acerto...:P

Não esqueça de escrever as impressões quando vc tiver a resposta =P :thumbsup:

Quando vou para o Paraná, dentro de todos os 780kms de estrada do caminho, a parte que mais gosto é o finalzinho da jornada, o trecho entre Sertanópolis e Londrina. Especificamente nesse sentido, indo de Sertanópolis para Londrina. 
A estrada é sinuosa, tem trechos de subidas e descidas, tem curvas ligeiramente inclinadas, tem espaço para ultrapassagens (terceira faixa), a sinalização é impecável e o asfalto é muito bem cuidado. É um tesãozinho de estrada.
Sempre que me vejo nesse trecho do caminho, faço questão de pisar mais fundo no acelerador e aproveitar as oportunidades de fazer as tangentes das curvas =D


Por falar em comparar Gol e March, meu pai trocou a (belíssima) Jetta Variant dele.
