    Are you going to have a sign up board. May be we could use the shop bays. Hope, hope.
  • went to get my speakers replaced today.

    Results--buzzing is even worse on heavy bass beats---I think its probably the mounting of the speakers or door panel-grill vibrating---

    I also mentioned AGAIN that my right window switch is black and all other switches on the car are chrome--I mentioned that others on this board and a plant worker stated that it should be chrome ---they finally agreed and ordered the switch---on my last visit they stated that they ALL are like that

    I just dropped them another notch and they are now a negative 3* dealer--

    the only good thing I have to say is that I got to abuse another Cheep Cherokee that they supply as a courtesy---

    I almost tipped it over on a sharp curve that was very sandy---almost lost control of the Cheep--the M never would have had trouble on that curve--

    At least they washed the M for me--it had major salt accumulation and was way overdue---

    I'm sure they again will forget to send me a rating card as they know how I would respond.

    Love the car--hate the service

  • I am currently watching the Olympics live on CBC, and you people are in for a treat, it is fantastic, so get your popcorn out and ENJOY! I can't understand why you have to watch a tape delay in the US. Yes I love my M, to keep the watching eyes happy, I also saw my twin this afternoon a 01 Inferno Red with a beautiful blonde driving it. I pulled up along side and gave her that look, not sure her boyfriend or husband was impressed, but what the heck!!!!!!

    No on the shop. The service and parts departments are closed, and I can guarantee you they wouldn't let you or I muck around in there. In fact, they probably lock the sales manager out too! lol.

    US TV is 100% about ad revenue. I've seen sports scores on the Internet before the game aired because they want to put in on at a "better time". Well, IMO, the right time is LIVE time. I guess since NBC paid a quadrillion dollars for the right to broadcast the olympics they need to broadcast it when the most eyes are awake and glued to the TV.

    I tell you though, I really loved it when the "major" station showed the taped highlights of the Norway olympics at prime time, but another cable TV showed them live in the middle of the night. Being a night owl I was in heaven.
  • I know what you mean, they just finished the parade of nations and it was terrific and now the half time show, with people like Sting etc. I will not spoil your view by posting who is the official torch bearer, some things are sacred. Please watch it everyone, it is teriffic. It was great here in Calgary in 88, lots of good memories. ENJOY everyone.By the way, our broadcast is commercial free, you can't beat that.
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    The thing that really chaps my hide about how the "major" stations here handle the olympics is that out of every hour there is about 15 minutes of sport, 15 minutes of commercials, 15 minutes of interviews and studio "talking heads", and 15 minutes of deep and compelling (yawn) special interest stories. My G*D, if I wanted to watch the biography channel I'd subscribe to it!

    My Riv definitely had GS-A tires. Mine was '96 Supercharged. Yours was '96 too, right?
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    Sounds like a scene out of American Grafitti when Richard Dryfuss spies Susanne Sommers in that white T-bird. You sure you weren't in San Diego? I have your twin M, my wife is blonde, and I would have given your a dirty look if YOU would have given my wife "the look" driving my car. lol

    Oh..interesting here. It's 10pm and they just started the "halftime ceremony" as you called it at the olympic opening ceremony. The whole indian tribe thing. We're obviously hours behind when you saw it, but on the screen it says (prominently, I might add) "LIVE". Sheesh.

  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    How'd the tint turn out for ya? Was the owner's wife working the counter? You'll know it if the answer was yes. :)

    3 sounds good for the show. I'm sure I'll see you before then, but if by chance I don't, I'll leave my house around 3 and meet you at your place. You're actually on the way for me. :)

    Just another joy of living on the Left Coast, I guess. The ability to suspend credulity is a survival skill.
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    You coming down for the meet and to visit your kin at college?
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    Found this after someone on the Yahoo board mentioned it. AEM makes cold air intake systems for various cars (only chrysler is the '01 sebring V6)...mostly ricers...but they have in interesting valve that prevents large amounts of water getting into the intake. There was a recall in the item but that was back in the summer of '01 so they must have redesigned the Air Bypass Valve. Anyone know if this would fit the Aircharger, Franken-intake or other systems? Seems that if I was to cut the intake tube and installed this in-line it might have the same effect in the Aircharger. I'm also not sure if it prevents small amounts of water from entering the system, or just does the pressure-sensitive shut-down in the event your filter is submerged.

    Oh..fastdriver..they make a system for the CL-S. :)

    I'd like to, but I have a hearing I haven't figured out how to get out of. If I can justify abusing one of my subordinates by giving them some more work, I'll come down. I could use some WARM; sick of cold and dark!
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    We, the members of the Edmunds 300M Board and/or the 300M Enthusiasts Club, hereby authorize you to abuse your subordinates. There...that help? lol

    The tint looks great! I don't think the cops should get upset. I chose dark (20% light trans) on the rear 3 windows and medium (30% light trans) on the front side windows. Then I did 10% on the windhield. Just kidding; wanted to see if you were paying attention! LOL No, there wasn't a female in sight at Tint Devil, but from your "tongue-in-cheek" comment, I'm sorry I missed her. I did see the silver Mercedes though. Someone has got a lot of $ in that! The autoshow at 3 is a no-no. Something else has come up that day. Would you consider Saturday or Sunday? Let me know.
  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    Put a small can attached to the bottom of the intake pipe. Put a hole in the bottom of the tube so that any water will flow down into the can. You can put a flapper valve or some filter medium in the bottom of the can so that water can escape. Or purchase one of those little breather filters.
  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    Live simply means that the taping was done using live people. LOL.
  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    The Autotint that did mine 3 years ago was a husban and wife team. They did excellent work. They have been doing it for the last 12 years.
  • fastdriverfastdriver Posts: 2,273

    Wish I was closer because I'd come to the meet just to see a group of Z'd 300M's! Maybe someone will have one in CT some day.

    "Oh..fastdriver..they make a system for the CL-S. :)" intake tubes are fine! My CL-S is fast enough for me with a nice "roar" from those duals when I step on it. Thanks anyway. ;-))


    PS How's the "one-armed bandit" doing?
  • So that was your wife I saw was it? Please tell her the M will move if you step on it, and also you did not look too pleased slumped down in the passengers seat, and please put on your seatbelt, it is the law and does save lives. LOL I did watch part of the Olympics on NBC and also noted that it said "live". Does not say much about the credibiity of NBC. We are having live broadcasts of the 15 KM womans cross country and an Italian woman won and were they fast The womans moguls are on now, we are lucky because CBC is very good about doing it live rather than tape delay, especially things like hockey and speed skating.
  • ajpiii, did you get the engine/trans spacers installed that you got from H&R?
  • sdmike2sdmike2 Posts: 2,909
    300michael - why a can with a hole? Why not just a small hole in the intake tube for drainage? I must be mssing something.

    fastdriver - he's doing great. Hasn't killed anyone or anything with it yet. We were lucky that he didn't have to imombilize his elbow (normally it's one joint above too). The pain is bathing..can't get it wet. Thanks for asking!

    glenn - Not sure about Saturday or Sunday. I'll have to check with my dear wife and get back to you. Hey, you play golf?

    mikeyjohn - Don't wife knows how to drive my M fast. She has actually stolen it for the weekend. She's taking an accelerated cellular biology class (completing her massage therapist training) and she's gone from 8am until 5pm Friday through Monday. I'm Mr. Mom. If me and the kids survive the 4 days it will be a miracle. :)

    All in CA - The lotto is up to 90 million. Don't bother's mine. :)
  • glennbpglennbp Posts: 327
    I used to love golf. Gave it up about 8 years ago after blowing a disc in my back. Figured there wasn't any sense in tempting fate. Fortunately, there isn't a lot of back strain pushing hard on the accelerator pedal!
  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    A hole would suck in dirty air. a small can filter would let water flow out (at low idel speeds(I know your M doesn't do much of that)) and would allow for a fiter medium to filter incomeing air.
  • scotianscotian Posts: 1,064
    can only occur if the air intake path begins at the bottom of the car just above the street. Usually it is an air filter hanging off the bottom of the car. In deep enough water, the entire air intake can get saturated with water (and the cone filter might fall off), which then gets sucked into the engine.

    With Aircharger, Franken-Intake, stock airbox, etc., the filter is far too high for this to be a concern; you'd have to drive your M into a lake for it to matter, and then you'd have other things to worry about.
  • My original post on the Intrepid board "there has been quite a lot of talk on the 300M board about plaques that go over the airbag information labels on the sun visors. Some company makes "Chrysler" plaques that cover these bright orange labels over. Has anyone seen them for either "Dodge" or "Intrepid"? It is not that big a deal, although to read the 300M board, you would think this has become a cause celeb.

    From Uxca- This guy wants them then gives us doo-doo talk for us wanting them! Duuuh!

    My post about the plaques for the sun visor was totally misunderstood by you. Cause celeb (cause celebre) means something that has widespread interest. PT owners have had these plaques available for quite a while, and my original interest was generated over on the discussion board.

    Truth of the matter is that I have always been a contributor to questions and solutions for Intrepid and 300M owners since purchasing my '98 ES almost immediately upon its debut. I was active on the AOL Auto Boards until they deteriorated into petty comments and infighting.

    So before you go quoting someone and adding insulting commentary, it would be helpful if you understood the jist of the topic to begin with.
  • Does anyone know if the 300M Special will be made beyond the 2002 model year? I sent a request for information on Chrysler's website and they told me they have no information and to keep in touch with my dealer, LOL. I have 6 more months to go on a 1999 300M lease and really like the look of the Special, but I'm afraid there won't be any around when I'm ready to buy later this year.
