  2. Club Logo Sticky Thread Sticky: Photo issues on our Forum (and across the internet)

    For years Photobucket has been a great place to host photos to then embed into forums like ours. However, this has changed, and to be able to do this from Photobucket you now need to pay a $399 yearly fee. So, we're afraid you'll be seeing plenty of this 4265 from now on :angry::angry::angry:

  6. Buy oarts from Smart

    Once again I have been surprised that Smart prices from Dealerships are cheaper than the internet. To give two examples the Tach/Clock cluster from the internet around 240 from Smart 109. Universal phone holder, internet around 90+ from dealership 50. So top marks for their pricing policy

  12. Question Running with auto climate always on?

    How many of you who have auto climate control have it constantly on? I've always wondered if having it always on reduces your mpg but on the other hand isn't it best to have it running constantly as it keeps all the pipe seals lubricated? :icon_smil
