It's like Buckleys.

Lets see...

The trailer is too small and the wheels can act like a fulcrum if the load is not balanced. The Suburban - at 2640kg - is likely heaviest at the nose. The E39 estate's towing capacity is a mere 750kg unbraked and 1800kg braked.

When decelerating hard - the trailers load could potentially shift forwards and put undue strain on the ball hitch. The hitch - now loaded more than what it would experience than by simply towing - could either physically break it's mount to the E39 - or cause the E39 to pitch upward using the rear axel as a fulcrum - thereby reducing its steering ability.

Strangely - music has built an idea of 1985 for the last 10 years.

I think the hydro-gas system is supposed to do that normally when the car is parked and off for a while. The system isn't being pressurized when it's off and the weight of the car pushes the fluid back into the reservoir from the suspension.

I always put it down to image stitching. You have a not quite spherical array of cameras affixed to the roof a base model Impreza taking photos through parabolic lens that produce a set high res images that all share a percentage of overlap with the other phots in the set.

Bots will stitch the photos in the set together looking for commonalities of colour - and of any of the known identifiable objects that Alphabets' reCaptcha database - and the completed image is set over a inverted spherical canvas as opposed to a planar one like a conventual photo. The rounding errors are expected - but are tolerable to the human eye when you're just looking for where something is rather than how faithfully it's been represented in a photo.

From maritime polymers for boats to the fuel in this helicopter. 3M. Building the future.

Which means it probably hasn't been canceled yet.
