@  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?
@  marchanna : (15 May 2015 - 04:06 AM) Haha. I just watched that skit last night.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (14 May 2015 - 05:59 AM) It's merely pining for the fjords right now
@  jwight : (14 May 2015 - 01:01 AM) That's too bad - hate to see the Mystery Run die out.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (13 May 2015 - 09:48 AM) I hadn't planned on organizing it this year. Noah had been planning on doing something I think, but he's no longer involved
@  marchanna : (12 May 2015 - 12:50 PM) Nope. It's a mystery.
@  stickman007 : (12 May 2015 - 09:41 AM) Any news on Mystery Run this year?
@  marchanna : (11 May 2015 - 02:07 PM) Nope. I had to tell the dealer I was having problems with it.
@  Francesco : (11 May 2015 - 06:03 AM) With a Star machine? Really? I find even just plugging/unplugging my ScanGauge stores CAN faults that the Star picks up.
@  marchanna : (11 May 2015 - 05:52 AM) On my ML320 I had a bad sensor and it didn't store any codes.
@  Francesco : (10 May 2015 - 03:00 PM) i will investigate the lateral G sensor showing positive lateral acceleration while the car is at rest.
@  Francesco : (10 May 2015 - 02:59 PM) Lights are working, alignment is correct. I'm still cycling through a variety of tire pressure combinations but the effect should still not be this aggressive considering it was flawless on bald rear tires last year. Faulty speed sensor should store a code, none stored.
@  marchanna : (10 May 2015 - 01:50 PM) Check for never tire wear with a depth gage, and tire pressure. Also if you have a bad speed sensor, it can cause an error intermittently. A slight misalignment in the front end can cause this too - i.e. improper toe-in. Other things that can affect it is a short or a ground fault in the brake and turn signal lights.
@  Francesco : (10 May 2015 - 01:18 PM) Wheel speeds are reporting fine, the problem is around bends with specific lateral forces. On one ramp the ESP reacts aggressively on initial turn in, then after the apex I'm able to power out with full pedal.
@  Francesco : (10 May 2015 - 01:16 PM) New last June, and painted with POR-15.
@  David_18 : (10 May 2015 - 11:46 AM) How are your ABS Ring ?
@  Francesco : (10 May 2015 - 07:44 AM) And the same tires last summer with zero problems, only difference this year is new ones in the rear
@  Francesco : (10 May 2015 - 07:43 AM) Yes
@  David_18 : (10 May 2015 - 07:43 AM) have*
@  David_18 : (10 May 2015 - 07:42 AM) You 4 tire with the same size ?
@  Francesco : (10 May 2015 - 07:38 AM) Yokohama S.drive 195/40-16
@  David_18 : (10 May 2015 - 07:13 AM) Brand/model ?
@  David_18 : (10 May 2015 - 07:08 AM) What tire you have ?
@  cadillacman : (10 May 2015 - 04:16 AM) try measuring the 'actual' circumference of all 4 tires, to see how much variance there is
@  Francesco : (09 May 2015 - 10:50 PM) Well I'm scratching my head. Think it might be the G sensor?
@  marchanna : (09 May 2015 - 06:44 PM) like in a PLC
@  marchanna : (09 May 2015 - 06:43 PM) I would say neither. It should have a fixed ladder logic.
@  Francesco : (09 May 2015 - 08:18 AM) Is the ESP system self-teaching or self-adapting?
@  marchanna : (08 May 2015 - 08:02 AM) Aren't they a division of Monarch Oil?
@  Mike T : (07 May 2015 - 09:11 PM) fuchs

Hi, maybe you hit the CAP LOCK button, eh? ;)So if that 451 in the photo is yours, it looks like a passion model, because the BRABUS does not come with a red interior or the skinny alloy wheels.That car reminds me of the John Player Special Lotus from the 1970s, and BRABUS Tailor Made has a version like that.
