Wax Review: In Seeking Solace

Book Review

A mixture of the profane and the sacred. A fusion of the Divine and the devious. One’s desire for true agape, true eros, true storge’, and true philia love…leads Peni-El RaphaKumwah to create her own space where love can run free and unabandoned. She can communicate fluently from the plantation to the palace. Ms. Raphakumwah is ill-struck. She is stricken with the passions of loving too deeply, loving to strong, loving too intense. Love is her compassion, her discourse, and her thesis. One should hope that the ‘Heavens’ are listening so that “those who have never been loved well”…will…soon!!

“I am a woman of explosive passions…”

Car Review: Mercedez-Benz E Class 320 CDI

Car Review:
2006 Mercedez-Benz E320 CDI
by black wax

Mercedez-Benz boasts a new V6 engine in the E320. The 3.5 liter V6 that produces 20 percent more power than the previous 3.2 liter V6 with no decrease in fuel mileage. The E320 is fast and luxurious. It can get up and go real quick, fast, and in a hurry. The big diesel engine feels like a V8.

The E320 is equipped with the latest innovative diesel technology, the E320 CDI asserts 201 horsepower and 369 lb-ft. of torque, enough to propel the car to 60 mph in just 6.6 seconds. In late 1997, Mercedes-Benz debuted the world’s first diesel engine with CDI, which stands for common-rail direct injection. The first truly electronic fuel injection system for diesels, the CDI system instantly created a new paradigm for the diesel industry. Relying purely on the heat of highly compressed intake air to ignite the fuel, diesel engines operate without spark plugs or other ignition parts.

The E-class model standard model is the E350. The E320 CDI is identical to the E350. The distinction between the two is the common-rail direct injection turbodiesel engine.

Never fearful of innovated ideas, the E-Class is the first large-scale Mercedes-Benz model to make extensive use of aluminum. Aluminum, which accounts for 10 percent of the car by weight, is lighter than steel. Aluminum parts include the hood, front fenders, trunk lid, as well as the front subframe and bumper crossmembers.

All that one could think to and want to program is programmable with HomeLink buttons. HomeLink buttons are located on the bottom of the rearview mirror and can be programmed to control the owner’s property amenities: garage doors, gates, house lights, etc.

Standard safety features in the E-class include eight airbags, dual front airbags, side-impact airbags for front and rear passengers, and head protection curtains that run the length of the cabin on both sides.

The E320 runs on unleaded premium fuel or diesel. Fuel economy is 27 city/ 37 highway. Estimated annual fuel cost $1025. MSRP is $51,050. The E-class is the Mercedez-Benz’s best selling line worldwide and one of the best-selling models in the United States.
