    Welcome to the board!
    If you will e-mail me with your phone # and e-mail addrerss I will keep you informed of the schedule.
    Also, is there a restaurant in the Dearborn area that would take a reservation for 30-50 people on a Sat. nite?

    Took my 00 M out for a drive last night. Had the headlight switch in the auto position, headlights on, sunroof open.

    About 5 minutes into the trip, the displays for odometer, transmission gear selection, radio, and overhead computer started switching back and forth from dim to bright all on their own.

    Thinking this might be caused by the fact that the streetlights were throwing light through the sunroof and confusing the sensor, I closed the sunroof. No help. Switched the headlight switch to ON from Auto. Still no help. Switched back to Auto. Problem disappeared.

    Familiar to anyone? Any thoughts?

    Hey Otto! I was on the Bramton site last night playing mini golf (computer) I think your dig about "I AM" may have gone over the heads of the group unless they have seen the commercials. I wonder who owns that trick beaver????. By the way real men drink "Diet Coke" here in the west. LOL.

    Just returned from the hospital for a pre-admission/flight checkup-blood leting and EKG--what fun! am busier than a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest--only a few days to my surgery.
    sdmike2==sorry about the ball-drop on your update site. Maybe I'll see y'all in the chatroom tonight--10:00pm EST/EDT

    Yes, this is a phenomenum that has intermittently appeared in several of the poster's M's. (mine included). Usually it is so infrequent that the dealer can not reproduce the problem. I believe I recall that one of our group had the light switch replaced, and a couple had the Body Control Module (BCM) replaced. My 5* ordered a replacement for me last Monday. It came in today, and will be installed tomorrow AM. Mine developed a more annoying set of problems: Headlights sometime don't turn off in "off" position.
    False "door ajar" indication which causes the interior lights to stay on. Annoying at night.
    Doors lock at odd moments, not at 10 mph.

    Good luck,

    Someone posted that there were 12 rooms reserved for the Hampton Inn Dearborn for Dream Cruise.
    The hotel has 6 reservations to date.
    Everyone needs to make their own reservations fot Dearborn and Brampton. Mention the "Chrysler 300M Club" to get our special rate.Hotel phone numbers are on the club web site:
    I would appreciate an e-mail when you have reserved so I can keep you informed of the weekend schedule.

    Well, I'll be there in spirit, if not in body. Wish I could attend- it looks great :D
  • Trying to find the pic of hte 300M with teh 69 Mustang scoop installed on it - I know I saw a link to a pic somewhere.. Can anyone help??
  • splattsplatt Posts: 328
    Someone was making them themselves a while back. Selling for about $550 or so. I looked at it, and liked it, but too much $$ for me ;) I forget who built them though...

    Just a heads-up to members and non-members alike. We're going to be moving the 300M Enthusiasts Club web site ( to a different server over the next few days. When this happens, there may be temporary outages as the new addresses are registered and propagated.

    If you can't get to the web site, just keep trying and we'll be there eventually. This is PROGRESS!

    Thanks for the info. Mine is going to the no-star on Friday. Will add it to the list just to get it on record.

    Thanks again,

    videoman - great review on the Pharos GPS and the benefits for you. Did you get the compactflash slot version or the cable assembly version of the system? I like the idea of the comapctflash module as you can then carry it around outside the vehicle without cables dangling!

    andy300m - the review link you posted earlier seems to highlight the four major players in the Pocket PC GPS arena...too bad it is a little outdated (July 2001) any review over 6 months old in this area is quite old as it is evolving quickly. I will try and find a newer review that hopefully compares the four. The destinator interface does appear to be a little slicker, but wonder if they are one of the market leaders.
  • mikeyjohnmikeyjohn Posts: 365
    The guy that was making them was Avalanche, but that goes back a year or so. He decided to go away from the M and started modifying another type vehicle. He also lost his licence, probably due to age and his mods.Unless someone bookmarked his address you will probably have to go through 17,000 post. I believe he went by Avalanche165

    I guess your choice would depend on what you prefer UI-wise. For example, when I tested TravRoute Co-Pilot, I found the interface very weird. However, the nice part about CoPilot is the iPaq sleeve for NavMan edition (sadly, very poor hardware quality) - no wires! Its hard to say who the market leader is, since all of these guys have made great improvements to their products. But I can tell you, it will not be TeleType GPS!
    Bottom line - try each unit (30 day return policy) and get the one you like. Many people I know decided to go with Destinator after trying the rest of the products.

    I cant wait for one of these companies to introduce voice recognition for PPC versions (most PPCs have mics anyway) so you can ask it "WHERE AM I?!" without taking your eyes off the road.
    just my $.02

    Was av's a mustang scoop? He might be talking about 300michael's scoop. sosborne - was the car silver or light green?
  • lonestarsledlonestarsled Posts: 226
    300michael has the mustang hood scoop, Av's looked like a late '70/early '80 Z/28 hood scoop.
  • smittydsmittyd Posts: 23
    300michael is the M with the Mustang scoop. Actually, Av's hood scoop was shaped like the one on the 1970 Barracuda AAR. That car (Barracuda AAR) was produced in sufficient quantities in order to be legal for the Trans Am series. It came with a 340 small block with three 2-bbl. carbs and side exhausts exiting in front of the rear wheels.

    Hmmm...I wonder how the 340 6-pack would work in an M?

    MOPAR or no car!

    is mine. I have seen Avalanches hood scoop on everything from Neon's, to Camero's. To be sure check our eather or for pictures. Or you could find it on the web site.
