  1. Yup. I still have it. It runs great. No detectable degradation of the battery yet. I haven’t had any service done in Halifax, so I can’t comment on their quality of work or pricing. All I can say is that after over 90,000kms this little car keeps on going trouble free.
  2. If you send me the old intercooler, I’ll solder up the leaks and then you’ll have a spare. Don’t forget that the alternator can likely be repaired for about a hundred dollars.
  3. I just contacted MB in Halifax, they quoted me 30-some-odd dollars. V-Star in Kitchener charged me $78 last time.
  4. Blaine, where did you buy your cartridges?
  5. I agree with Tolsen. I have a tube of Permatex dielectric grease that I bought about 10 years ago. I apply it to everything electrical to prevent corrosion and arcing. It's also high-temp so you can use it on spark plug boots also.
  6. A strong economy also results in people buying bigger gas guzzlers. I read a report from the insurance bureau that indicated that your chances of surviving a crash in a large pickup or SUV is indeed greater, however, for every 1 life saved in an big vehicle 3 others are claimed in a crash which would otherwise not have been fatal. In the end big vehicles are safer for the occupants but orders of magnitude more dangerous for everyone else. The end result, because some people have to have giant vehicles, everyone else does too in order to equalize safety. It's a negative feedback loop. Shall we discuss the impact on economic cycles?
  7. I was coming from the airport. I'm back home now. Finally.
  8. Turns out I'm going to be close to there tomorrow for a conference.
  9. Whereabouts is Tantalon?
  10. I would go ahead and put it through insurance, and if they try to raise your rates, shop around for a new insurance company. If you have a clean history up until now, most insurance companies would jump at the opportunity to sign you on because statistically you are unlikely to have another incident. I would recommend TD insurance for both car and motorcycle. No other insurance company so far has been able to touch their rates for me.
  11. Definitely a lot different from Southern Ontario. Not nearly as many angry or rude people.
  12. Sorry I missed you. I should've posted a week earlier.
  13. Hi all, Most of you know me, I've even met a few of you, so not new to the group, but I am new to Nova Scotia. I moved to Pictou County a couple months ago. So, do we have any members on the board here from NS?
  14. For the sake of interest, today i got in and checked the range. It indicated 86km with a full charge. I drove 70kms (mostly highway), and had more than 40% SOC left, and it said I had 47km range left.
  15. Nice. It's like a fire sale.
