@  Mike T : (29 May 2015 - 08:34 PM) Maybe they will send you a roadster BRABUS engine as compensation
@  dmoonen : (29 May 2015 - 12:28 PM) I just made a claim. . lets see how it goes
@  marchanna : (29 May 2015 - 11:19 AM) Check your policy. They might cover it for a new engine or perfectly good used engine. If you haven't made any claims in the last seven years it probably won't affect your premium. And hey, why shouldn't you get a little money back from your insurance now and then - that is it's purpose to compensate you for extraordinary and unforeseeable losses.
@  Mike T : (29 May 2015 - 10:19 AM) lol
@  Francesco : (29 May 2015 - 10:15 AM) I doubt that cdi will work too well in a 451. ;)
@  Mike T : (29 May 2015 - 08:42 AM) But, you could get a new crate engine! It's troubling that the thief stole a smart engine. Not all smart owners are honest, eh?
@  dmoonen : (29 May 2015 - 08:20 AM) Meh not even going to bother with it, changed the key code on the door. They got in due to worn out digits on the pad.
@  marchanna : (29 May 2015 - 07:53 AM) And insurance will probably replace it for you :)
@  Mike T : (29 May 2015 - 07:51 AM) Haha, that's great!
@  dmoonen : (29 May 2015 - 07:32 AM) Free scrap removal :P
@  dmoonen : (29 May 2015 - 07:29 AM) Had an break in at the shop, only thing that stolen was a smart engine. . . best thing is the engine was blown with 240K on it.
@  Mike T : (25 May 2015 - 09:43 PM) ouch. We stayed at the Fairmont Monte Carlo and every other Fairmont I have stayed at was better! Still it was fun having the RCZ pulled up outside the main entrance.

@  Francesco : (25 May 2015 - 09:39 PM) Anchored off Monaco for the weekend, tenders to Fontvieille, three different grandstands, "Formula 1 Paddock Club®”, Ferrari paddocks, Pirelli hospitality area, top of Yacht Club... This shore excursion was a bucket-lister for sure. US$15k pp
@  Francesco : (25 May 2015 - 09:31 PM) A friend who works at Google went this weekend. Hopped a Monaco GP cruise aboard Crystal from Lisbon-Barcelona-Monaco (Fontvieille)-Rome
@  Mike T : (25 May 2015 - 08:03 PM) Driving that course is fun in a street car, like the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve. In an F-1 car I can imagine the frustration.
@  Francesco : (25 May 2015 - 07:40 PM) Rascasse is the only real passing area, after Piscine.
@  marchanna : (25 May 2015 - 08:47 AM) I'm usually good for watching a few laps, but then I get bored. I would prefer to be in the race.
@  Leadwing : (25 May 2015 - 07:33 AM) Monaco is a horrible place to try and pass. For most of the track, only the extremely brave (or stupid) try it on the track. Most will try to 'undercut' during a pitstop. That said, Lewis Hamilton's crew really screwed things up for him.
@  Mike T : (24 May 2015 - 08:46 PM) But it was cool to see JPM win the 500 again, it was a great drive
@  Mike T : (24 May 2015 - 06:31 PM) Monaco sucks at the best of times - this year it hit a new low
@  jwight : (24 May 2015 - 05:41 PM) Somehow the parade left Lewis Hamilton out...
@  Mike T : (24 May 2015 - 12:16 PM) Great Indy 500 today, in contrast with the dismal F1 Monaco parade.
@  smart65 : (21 May 2015 - 11:57 AM) Thanks
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 May 2015 - 06:48 AM) You can now also click on the number of comments and it will take you to the shop page with the comments on it
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 May 2015 - 06:36 AM) If you click on the shop name, it will take you to a page just for that shop, with the full details. I'll make the comment count a link to the page as well.
@  smart65 : (21 May 2015 - 06:28 AM) How can comments be accessed in Service Options?
@  Mike T : (20 May 2015 - 11:39 AM) PM sent of manual excerpt
@  Mike T : (20 May 2015 - 11:37 AM) It's in the owners manual all right
@  Huronlad : (20 May 2015 - 08:47 AM) There are numerous threads about the "three bars of death", make use of the forum search feature and do some reading.
@  1EGRBVR : (20 May 2015 - 06:39 AM) Thanks. I see nothing in the owners manual.
@  Mike T : (20 May 2015 - 06:31 AM) *Check
@  Mike T : (20 May 2015 - 06:31 AM) Gheck your owners manual, it is a gearbox fault.
@  1EGRBVR : (20 May 2015 - 06:07 AM) On the instrument cluster where the LED shows the gear you are in or A for Automatic, I am showing 3 vertical lines instead going across.  Has anyone else encountered this?   This happened after I changed the rear signal light.
@  Mike T : (19 May 2015 - 08:13 PM) Le Club 404 and some private sector guys in Europe are picking up on this big-time.
@  marchanna : (19 May 2015 - 04:38 PM) That makes good sense. Do you hope to get service parts made or custom built?
@  Mike T : (19 May 2015 - 03:07 PM) Strength in numbers....parts reproductions are more likely if we know there are 2000 or more coupes and cabriolets left...plus I have wanted to know this (how many are left) since 1977 when I first wanted to buy one.
@  marchanna : (19 May 2015 - 08:27 AM) Good stuff! Just out of curiosity, is there a practical purpose for the registry or is it just for fun?
@  Mike T : (18 May 2015 - 07:57 PM) Got some new 404s for the Registry, boo yeah!
@  marchanna : (18 May 2015 - 04:04 PM) Sup?

I was just wondering what kind of cost would be associated with recharging these little beauties. My hydro at this point is around $300 a month and I live about an hour and a half from the larger cities. Hydro keeps saying that we have to conserve and every time we get our hydro bill down a bit they raise the cost of hydro for one BS excuse or another.

If you are asking about the ED about $2 for a full charge for about 135 km of range. A/C uses up about 5% of the available charge, heat much more.

I've tried to find out the kWh required to bring a battery from 80% drain to full recharge - no luck thus far. I think $2.00 is a bit light - that would mean (in BC at 9 cents kWh) about 22 kWh, or an old 100 watt bulb running for 220 hours...What we really need is the kWh, then you can figure out the cost. May depend on time of day in some regions.Like all driving, you can make this number smaller by driving conservatively. All the same principles apply - your ability to anticipate traffic flow, your speed, losing weight in the city, tire pressure..... it will all make a difference.

17.6 kWh? Wow.... Well, then I guess the car will cost well under $2.00 to recharge in BC. Especially if you can get this within your cheaper rate of under 7 cents/kWh (limited to 1450 kWh per two month period per account - if you use more than this, it becomes closer to 9 cents). Rates outside of BC can be much higher, so perhaps that is where the $3.50 came from that the guys on the smart electric drive tour are quoting. Have a look at the US EPA rating sheet here: http://en.wikipedia...._electric_drive I like how kWh/100 km (or kWh per 100 miles) is used in the ratings. I would think this is the standard, but I've never been up on electric vehicle geekery... The EPA lists the smart EV as 87 mpg (US) equivalent. And the car is way heavier. Here's a bit of a primer I found on decoding the ratings for electrics: http://www.edmunds.c...ic-car-mpg.html
