  1. Why you might ask? Well I won tickets to the tournament of hearts being played in Sydney. You might remember that 2 years ago Liz and I drove out to see the men play in St. John Newfoundland. In fact we left on Wed and are now in Nova Scotia and will see the opening ceremony tomorrow. Of course we drove an 06 diesel smart and spent $122 in fuel to get here! We were lucky and had dry roads except for a short stint of very light snow today. The little smart has served us well!!!
  2. Hey, we were spotted already and didn't have to do anything outrageous haha!!!!
  3. Yes the return ferry ride from Newfoundland was ONE too many haha!!!! This time we pushed right through - 2 10 hr days behind the wheel! Relatively easy!
  4. My fault. Peep posted a couple of days ago and is looking for a used ED. We haven't heard from him in ages but I always enjoyed his humour so I linked one of his old posts and then members chose to respond to it.
  5. WOW!!!! long time, is the peep back??? Did you sell your diesel? I always enjoyed your posts! Here's an example.....
  6. Do you know a good mechanic? If you are set on buying the smart it would be wise to have it checked out by the mechanic before buying.
  7. FYI - the last time we were at Tiger Jacks was 9 years ago in 2010 when Mike T and Sandi visited. SIGN UP 1. Bill 2. Ron & Dot 3. Liz & Glenn 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
  8. It's been a while so its been decided to revisit a favourite - Hong Ping Restaurant The normal start of 6pm. I am also posting a sign up list for those that would like to go slot car racing. We will need a minimum of 8 people willing to pay $15 to open up the track. We have done this in the past and had a lot of fun. Hope to see everyone in February. Not enough interest so racing is CANCELLED. Hong Ping sign up: 1. Liz & Glenn. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Racing sign up: 1. Glenn 2. Liz 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  9. I like the scangauge when I do test drives. The MAP is a good indicator of turbo function and you can check the charging system and the water temp - very handy!
  10. Silver, black, or brabus? I have them in London. Send me a pm

  13. When you hear the click of the computer shutting down wait an additional 5 seconds.
  14. Yes, check your reluctor rings.....
  15. I saw them do this repair at the dealer. They didn't remove the whole panel. What they did first was remove the handle assembly, then the panel was popped offed the top edge - slid down a foot and then a 6'' piece of 2x4 was used to push it out so the lock assembly could be removed. This was back in the day when they were replacing the locks under warranty and they found this method saved them time.
  16. Right you are Bill!! Everyone I talked to enjoyed the food and I especially liked the big 16oz draft beer for only $5!! The consensus at our end of the table was to head to the Hong Ping restaurant in Feb. Because of its proximity to the ONO raceway I would like to see if there is enough interest to go ''racing'' after dinner. I will post details and sign ups shortly. Cheers all

  21. There is an ABS control unit under the front belly pan, drivers side.
  22. Check to see if its getting fuel. When the key is turned on do you hear a small motor running from passenger footwell? That's the fuel pump running.
  23. Visually inspect the rear reluctor rings.
