  1. Ya! Ha ha ha! When does 88 +111=200? ...and the earth is Flat...
  2. If 111 are coupes and 88 are cabriolet What are the other 2?
  3. I too would like to purchase this software but the seller, you have linked to, does not offer international shipping to Canada. Do you offer international postage? This seller doesn't offer international postage. Although I was able to find this .... Would this work? http://www.ebay.ca/itm/WOW-snooper-BT-OBD2-diagnostic-scanner-DS150E-EQUIVALENT-with4-FREE-SOFTWARE2016-/192266238994?hash=item2cc3f5fc12:g:VdUAAOSwopRYfhhx Interestingly when searching the ebay UK site https://www.ebay.co.uk for Delphie DS150e I didn't get the results you got Tolsen. I wonder why? https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_odkw=delphi+ds150e&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l2632.R2.TR2.TRC1.A0.H0.Xdelphi+ds150e.TRS0&_nkw=delphi+ds150e&_sacat=180124
  4. Recently had the belt snap in my 06 CDi. I didn't see that coming! Alternator is in good shape and I have no idea why it happened. Went to Parts Source for the belt and they offered 2 types for this car. A 4 rib, that they had in stock, for $15 and the 5 rib which had to be ordered in at $27. So I went with the 4 rib and it is working fine for now. I suspect the 5 rib should last longer because of the extra material but then when I noticed the design of the 4 rib they were not continuous grooves. They have short diagonal grooves intersecting the rib design. It looks like an improved design with a better wear factor. Made by Continental called the 'Elite Poly V Belt' with quiet technology
  5. I had the same problem last year. It is definitely the alternator. Especially if you'v driven the car in the winter to get a good dose of street salt water and then parked it like I did.. The right recipe for 'rust me' soup mix!. Now I have my hose hooked up to the laundry faucet to get hot water to rinse under the car where possible
  6. Requires a gentle touch,not easily acqured by back yard mechanics. I have a set of the large mouth grips with leather glued onto the jaws.Very handy
  7. These vice grips are very persuasive. I've yet to have an oil filter give me any problems on any vehicle with these babies!
  8. How do these single wheel trailers respone when turning, if the wheel doesn't turn? Either the load is so light that it drags the tire into a turn or this is how you wear out a tire.
  9. If the ones I posted above appear to have the wheel that is unacceptable for highway I would assume the same for this VW setup. Unless the whitewall gives it the illusion of approval. So which one is your favourite so far?
  10. One more design feature to add to this concept. The ability to flip it up and drive with it until required! Now all I have to do is to devise a strap system to secure it to the Smart to keep it in place.
  11. I watched another video on this amazing swivel design! This is perhaps the best trailer design in the world to carry an electric scooter, motorcycle,or any size cargo that will fit on the platform! (weight constraints obviously apply) Apparently there is no one here in Ontario that I've been able to locate. Its a good think I'm a certified welder.
  12. The Blue Ox baseplates, that looks like it would be able to work, appears to come through the front grill and not under the spoiler as I was hoping it would. I suspect it is a modification to the Smart lower swing arms and not to the chassis
  13. Saw this years ago at a members photobucket page and was curious how exacty it was connected to the front of the Smart He sold his Smart and I do not believe he has been back to visit us since? I messaged him and perhaps he will reply. It looks like a clever way to tow a Smart. Just needs a safety chain to make it legal.
  14. Good morning

     

    Some time ago you had made (I think it was you) a tow bar for the smart car attaching to the undercarriage.

    If it was you or if you know how it is connected to the underside of the car I would be very grateful to know

     

    thank you
