@  kdubya : (31 October 2014 - 01:53 PM) Checked the registries, super cool! Didn't realize both my cars had been previously auctioned. Thanks fellas!
@  Mike T : (31 October 2014 - 11:59 AM) Hello members, we are pleased to have gone "live" with our Car Registries dropdown, for the moment containing only the Canadian 450 cdi list. Please read the information concerning the use of the Registry on our homepage. Thanks!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 October 2014 - 05:39 PM) You should look at the "Service Options" link at the top of the page though, for independent smart mechanics
@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 October 2014 - 05:39 PM) Could be the cold start issue that SkyDiverChris has been fighting with too. Temperature's about right
@  Mike T : (30 October 2014 - 05:38 PM) I am thinking it's the fuel pump connection on the SAM but a dealer should look at that first due to the Service Bulletin on the topic.
@  SINIVU : (30 October 2014 - 05:32 PM) Probably Kitchener dealer!
@  Mike T : (30 October 2014 - 05:19 PM) Which dealer?

@  marchanna : (23 October 2014 - 06:26 PM) You should report that, it makes you an accessory after the fact. Oh crap! Now we're all accessories! Speaking of which, I should buy some accessories for my car.

Yeah, and a real coincidence as I was driving to Montreal tomorrow to buy one for $225 plus tax, the box would fit in the 450 with the passenger seat down so at least it wouldn't have cost $60 in gas! :lol:

Yeah, I saw that one too but this $319 model from PA is the one similar to the one from CTC http://www.princessa...Lift-Shop-Crane, the rear wheels are the weak point in the $155 model, they are mounted on flat stock welded to the tube....instead of mounted directly to longer/wider tubes at the rear. As well the rams are different one is 5 ton the other is 8 ton.

If that is so I'll betcha a whole nickle the $319 model was tagged by the staff at the cheaper($155) price by accident, I've seen some "deals" at PA due to that, both PA models are rated at 2 ton it's just one weighs 30 lbs less than the other not to mention the lower power ram, :D
