2 Black Mega Braid Docklines 7/8' on 2040-parts.com
Reno, Nevada, United States
These dock lines are professionally spliced. The bitter end is whipped, and they have a 14" soft eye. I ordered them as 50', but as I measure them now, they come out to just over 48', including the eye material. I believe the rope used is New England Ropes, but I have no proof of that. They are very high quality dock lines, and appear perfect. I have never used these lines, but carried them in a locker on my boat "just in case". They appear as new. I periodically washed, and used Downey fabric softener on my lines, and included these lines in that maintenance schedule.
Mega Braid is a unique 12-strand nylon single braid, that absorbs kinks and is easily coiled or flaked. Developed specially for anchor and dock lines for larger yachts, it offers a combination of superb handling characteristics, excellent strength and controlled elongation in a torque free design.

The BMW Gran Lusso Coupe by Pininfarina revealed ahead of Villa d’Este
Or at least it still does if you expect the new 8 Series to look like a two-door version of the next generation 7 Series, rather than a completely individual model like the old 8 Series. Underpinning the Gran Lusso Coupe is the same platform the 7 Series uses and the same V12 from the 760i, which makes it both easier to bolt the Gran Lusso together and imagine it as future production model. The exterior of the Gran Lusso looks a bit like a coachbuilt version of a big BMW coupe, with most of the BMW design cues intact – if sharpened somewhat – with short overhangs and a long wheelbase.

The Hyundai ix-Metro Concept at Frankfurt
The new ix35 – despite looking very similar to most offerings in the same sector – is enormously competent – at least in its conception – and well built. Most importantly for buyers it will undercut the current offerings, whilst offering a package the equivalent of the best. But is Hyundai getting a bit too wrapped-up in its Euro-design?
