  1. Check it out:
  2. yep, moving in a couple of weeks! Will be a sad day as we loved this place and community... bit it will for sure be nice to have a backyard and more space :-)
  3. My old cdi was around 4l/100km... mostly city traffic. The Vw should be around 7-8l/100km (still on my first tank after two weeks...). Turns out that we finally found a house we like and bought it :-) Glad I have a bigger car now to drive crap around. Cheers
  4. Hey, I thought some of you may get a kick out of this: One of our neighbors ( Adam Kreek) is currently rowing from Senegal to Miami! Here is a cool radio interview with him from today on CBC Cheers, Andreas
  5. Hi folks,It's about a week ago since I sold my 06 Smart car. Main reason was the limited storage and passenger capacity. Other then that, I couldn't complain at all. I'm now driving a 2004 2.0 VW Jetta. Here are my observations in how different those two cars are: - I have to drive less then a km till I have HOT air blowing and heating up the car. No heated seats needed! - Stereo system. WOW! I didn't notice how bad the Smart sound system was..... - Noise level. I can now have a conversation without raising the voice! No rumbling from the wheels either, just gliding along :-)- Available power: I know the Smart isn't a race car and was always fast enough for me, but what always bugged me was the delay in downshifting.... sometimes it was just plain dangerous how slow the smart shifted! Now I push the throttle and that thing just flys...- Trunk space.... well, don't have say much about it, other then I like it!- Parking: This is the hard part! I got so used to pull into small parking spots... Now I'm circling the block several times till I find something and usually also have to park further away... - Fuel economy: The Smart spoiled me, no question and I will certainly miss that.- Repairshop: I can now get oil changes for cheap! No super expensive oil required. And if I'm short on money, I can even get it fixed at Canadian Tire. But will try and avoid that... Overall, I love my new car but certainly miss the Smart..... btw, haven't had anyone tailgating me !!! Cheers and all the best ,you guys have been awesome and I hope we cross paths again :-)Andreas
  6. Right after I bought mine, I had some issues with the water in fuel filter light also... My interior light worked at it's own will also. After driving it for several weeks with the A/C blowing on the E-box it stopped and has never give me any errors again.
  7. Haven't bought anything yet... but working on a 2004 Jetta.... I will miss the Smart!
  8. I sold mine.... sad day... but life goes on--I guess...
