  1. This is just bizarre... Tesla related, well, Elon Musk related, same difference!
  2. I put insurance on the canada1 yesterday, and today I did an oil and oil filter/o-ring change. I will need to do a decent wash and detail soon. I keep hearing a rumour that someone wants to drive the car home to Ontario, but that has not happened yet. Just over 107,000 kms
  3. I wonder if any smart dealers in Canada even have 453 leftovers... I still never have driven one.
  4. I am absolutely not a fan of Elon Musk. He stinks of self-congratulatory hyperbole. How fitting! But Tesla is popular as a money making racket for stock pumpers, oh, and they occasionally deliver some cars.
  5. Excerpt below link... read more online.
  6. Tolsen will have an answer once he awakes (he's in the UK). Sorry, I have always kept my smarts no more than 120,000 kms and have yet to experience such issues. But the answer will be here for you!
  7. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.... No Repairs and Maintenance topics should be in General Discussions They should either go to the newly created One-off Questions and Other Things Asked Often! forum, or for best results..... into the applicable Repairs and Maintenance forum which is sorted by the models and years specific to the Canadian market. Thank you!
  8. Yes - this is a suitable car:
  9. Eclectrix wants one that would be hers IMO! Road trip! Someone drive that to AB for her and take a canada1 from BC home.
  10. I've created this new forum which is an attempt to capture the significant quantity of quick one-off questions that are getting posted in the General Discussions forum, by new and old members alike. Not everyone gets the result they are looking for when using the advanced search features, so here's a forum for those who just need to get their question(s) answered.... The idea is that if you are wanting to ask a quick question, and get some help with a specific issue, you can post that here. Hopefully someone will post with the answer you need, or a link to the answer you need in an already existing topic. This forum is NOT intended to be a repository for full length discussions on maintenance items. Moderators will lock topics once they appear to be sufficiently answered, especially if the answers are linked to other forum topics.
  11. If I look at 2017, there were an additional 700 members who last visited that year (in addition to the one's from 2018, for the most part) And 314 of those also posted at least once And, just to be clear, visiting would mean signing in, not just viewing the site as a guest.
  12. In case you are curious, 243 have 'visited' in 2018, but only 104 have 'posted'
  13. Here's a list of 104 members with at least one post in 2018, from the oldest date joined (registered) to the very latest: MikeT SmartieParts smart142 smartzuum smart65 Duck smartnhappy darren Eclectrix ianjay hot4smart leejor carole-anne minifreak Danny 1983JZR3W Lil Jett lebikerboy zrwon brd DrZaius David_18 smartdriver jwight booneylander Huronlad VRsyncro Henry TrishM smart fortimo tolsen Leadwing Freedom95 Wild! stickman007 jbcollier Michelle21 dmoonen dguy rustyvolvo SmartElectric jakesmart Dali555 dalplex Blaine LooseLugNuts TheHandyHobbit YUGreen Jocko Nigel GMoney GRP151 smartethel Ritchie Paul SMARTWRENCH GetSmart caldense Gnomeish NFB RobCDI Hercarmyproblem CBXstan ChickenGeorge Noel SBD BONACARS kelaog ronjan carlc1979 JohnOneVerseOneThroughFour Will LifeinSerenity seanw mvdp luwie mlab miscent stroom rsmartc SmartloverCROCOP ACSTECH PeterOttawa Nigelhobbs Wadhamite missmick Peanutz lordpaige Useless Alfredo smartrosie21 PjSmart451 bigdreaminsmart cesardela Brackenshiel CharliesTheMan nbman francis LoriChamberland Timmy plagiarize bradfordborn37 ahmetgns sponge2
  14. They are saying they won't, they are only planning to bring the current model in.... The ROW has already for the most part switched to the new model, Europe anyway. There's always somewhere in South America getting an old model of something. So.... all of this to denote I have been thinking about some new sportier/faster wheels, but has to be 'inexpensive'.... as my CX-5 is nice, but dead slow. They really ought to have given the 6 speed the 2.5 litre engine.
  15. Here's some stats - I have save them as screenshots so everyone should be able to view them now! (Thanks Nigel and Darren) Monthly post total, since site inception A breakdown of weekly post totals, over the previous two years only: The registrations still reflect a lot of spammers and accounts that get bounced.... We're still seeing up to 50 a month, and certainly that is higher than 2007/2008 which were peak in terms of actual posts. And for those still using 'private messaging' (PM), here's how things look:
