Put gas in it, again. Feels like it was just yesterday that I was at the pump. :p

Installed the Mediabridge last night, seems to work pretty well. Only gripe is the navigation through functions and menus. Little slow, but does what is advertised. Ipod navigation sucks but the sirius function and bluetooth work great. Install was fairly straightforward, longest time was spent routing cables and wires and having a clean look.

Set up an appointment with a great local indy shop to get INSP2 - the shady stealership I bought it from gave me forged paperwork that said it had been done at a local dealer, who has no record of the vehicle being in their shop :(

Bigger problem is said stealership is no longer in business, liquidated assets of the LLC, nobody left to sue...

Live and learn, I guess

Replaced passenger-side fog light bulb for the 4th time in 2 weeks. I purchased 4 bulbs on eBay, $1.98 per pair plus $6 shipping from Hong Kong. Well, the bulbs were a close match to my HID Xenons, but sadly, they don't work after a day or two!!! LOL! If it seems like a good deal, it's not! ;)

o.l.t., umm quick question. isn't that wayyyyyy too much coolant in the system?
Or was that before you cycled it through the engine/system and bled it?

Took her. through loads of snow covered highways, through some snow drifts and exposed to -30 for a day. Was not happy with me when she started up but no engine failsafe message (like i always get when its any colder). This vehicle is not meant for this weather but it has been coping pretty well with an average around town of 18/L per 100km. But i wouldnt have antything else right now.
