  1. I agree completely! This is why (when using metric measurements) I use the kilometers per liter. (Metric version of MPG the way I use it.) Much easier to figure the distance available to travel with the amount of fuel supplied.
  2. I have a complete set of 450 panels, but they are for a coupe. Not to be sold separately.

  4. According to Evilution, there are multiple possibilities for the 3 bars Evilution says: The smart gearbox relies on a lot of electronics to keep it working properly, it only takes one part to misbehave to call up an error code. Causes can be one or more of the following: Fuse Blown Secondary Fuse/Relay Box Corrosion (600cc) Faulty SE Drive Stuck Gears Weak Battery Poor Earth Lead Faulty Brake Lights Incorrect Brake Light Bulb LED Brake Light Bulbs Faulty Gearbox RPM Sensor Faulty Rear Light Loom (Roadster) Faulty Gear Motor Faulty Gear Position Sensor Faulty Clutch Actuator Chaffed Wires Damage Wires Stuck Clutch Seized Gearbox Faulty Relay Split Reluctor Rings Worn Clutch Fork Solder Joint Failure Faulty gearbox RPM sensor Gearbox Reteach Canadian E-Box Failure ECU Component Failure
  5. There's no specific time in which you "must" add an introduction. It's not even a requirement, but it IS nice to meet newer members and get a little background. A bit belated, but to the club.
  6. Lubricate the heck out of it when you get a chance. This should remove the "creaking". As for the alignment, IF it needs to be re-aligned, ask on this site for help. There are several people in the south-western Ontario area that could help
  7. Welcome to the club. If you have questions, we have many knowledgeable people here who can and will help. Again, Ron
  8. I have been a member since 2009 and have NEVER had any issues with the site. BTW, to the club.
  9. My 450 Cabrio has never leaked and has even had its share of trips through a car wash when I am too lazy to do it by hand.
  10. If you ask Mrs. Leadwing, a LOT of chocolate is much better.
  11. Welcome to the site! I can only echo the comments of Willys and Smart142. It is, indeed, a beautiful ride.
  12. It is possible that the raise / lower function could be rusted. If you can give it a wiggle to see if it moves freely, that might work. The adjuster motor obviously works, but perhaps it is not shutting off because the headlights were moved (a heavy bump or jar from a pothole maybe) slightly and the adjuster is trying to put things back to where they were originally set. Just thinking outside the box ....
  13. I have no answer for the original question, but there is no "park" on a 450.

  15. Perhaps the picture size is too big. Can you tell me the size (height and width in pixels) of the file photo that you were trying to post?
