    You guys see this news story? LOL

    Me agree. I got my M in November and wash it once or twice a week but I've really got the itch to clay bar it and add the zillion coats of Zaino. Guess I'll have to wait another eight weeks or so
    before I can start.I purchase a lot of 3M products through my company so I just left a voice mail with my sale rep. to see if we can get a deal on the Head light film. Will let you know when I get an answer.
  • Thanks uxca it might save us a bunch and would appreciate it, I'll wait for your reply. I hope at the end of the day that all countries with members on this site will be satisfied and we can all learn to get along. Our common denominators is our M's. I also read about the Brits and Spain and got a chuckle out of it. Someones in a lot of poop on this one. When I was in the military in Ontario a million years ago, we had one of our guys cross over the border to Watertown NY with a loaded sub-machine gun in his trunk, it almost caused an International incident, I think the guy is still in the detention barrracks LOL
  • I've used it myself and agree that it's about the best window cleaner I've tried.

    I've used most of the Stoner products to detail my cars for about 2 years now and have had great success. Their tire treatment works great and is reasonably priced.

    The Xenit cleaner really works but be careful around plastic or rubberized trim, it will eat into it if you aren't careful. It does a great job of taking stubborn stains off the door sill trim.
  • Hi all, it's me again. Well my car is still in the shop, today is the 8th day, and they say the Michelin tires that were installed 3 weeks ago are bad. Also again a bent wheel on the front.
    This is 2nd bent wheel now since purchased.
    Well hopefully this will take care of vibration problem. HaHa found TSB to cover the wind noise in driver door, you know the one the tech rep says is normal. Well waiting to see if they fix that. The crazy seat is still moving.
    Hey you guys with the seat movement!!!!! Is your seat moving because it's not bolted down or is it the power pushing it forward??? The dreaded body control module, of course the tech rep still denying it's happening.
    Got a letter from Chrysler the other day, wanting to know if my arbit problem (vibration) resolved and how was the treatment I received. After I picked myself off the floor from laughing so hard, I sat down and wrote a 4 page letter to let them know exactly what I thought. Well I did go ahead and pay the $25.00 to Alldata, so at least I have ALL the info on these TSB's the dealers claim don't exist.

    I had my passenger side and driver side cut out today and it looks great. Now just waiting on my mufflers to come in.

    Why is everyone using the dual outlets as exhaust tips? Has anyone tried just one big oval tip instead? Is there a performance gain with the dual tips?

    I am torn between the two tips. HELP!!!!!!!!
  • beach15beach15 Posts: 1,305
    There's no performance difference between 1 or 2 tips, there exactly what the name says--just decorative tips. It's basically just a personal style thing. If you noticed, the 300M Special comes from the factory with just 1 chrome circular tip on each side, and it looks pretty good. Whatever you like is what's best!

    (IMHO, 2 chrome ovals on each side just looks great though!!)
  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    The drivers side had two pipes so to balance it most put two on the passanger side as well. If the cutout was more rounded (like the Special) then singles on each side would do nicely. Have four pipes is no better then two, as long as the minimum diameter of the pipe is at least 2" I have seen a few oval ones that would be ok looking on the rear too. If the cutouts were not orginaly done I probably would have had them come out the sides in fron the the rear tires. I wish the spare tire well wasn't so close to the rear, so that you could have the pipes exit out the center like the Hemi C and Vette.
  • Mikeyjohn - That was me wondering about the headlight film. Does 3M carry it? Thanks for any info.
  • How about some polished billet aluminum door sills with the chrysler that would be nice! I am looking for a source.

    One of the Yahoo users has a totally chromed out trunk, and personally I think it looks like crap. But opinions are like ... uh... noses.. ;)
  • I asked this once before but got no response--so I'll try again---has anyone had the dealer replace the sticky weatherstrip for the window sticking problem---is there a tsb for this---mine still tend to stick in warmer weather even after 2 years and silicone etc
  • uxca300M is the one looking at the 3M stuff, I was just asking the question whether it was possible to make our own thus saving lots. Keep watching this site for uxca to get back to us, he deals with a 3M rep here in Canada, and hopfully we can work something out.

    Copy/paste URL into new window:

    Found on one of the Yahoo groups.
  • Received my black on silver visor plaques today in the mail from PT Warehouse. They look very classy and I can't wait to install them tomorrow to cover up those annoying air bag stickers.

    They are quite flexible, which is probably a good thing. No complaints, the best $16 US I have spent in a while. Hmmm...Well just one small complaint, they charged me an extra $3 for overseas shipping and handling to Canada! Must have missed that new OCEAN they built!

    Thanks uxca300m (Mike) for finding and communicating with the supplier. I owe you a Bud....err a Canadian I mean :)
  • I'd rate that right up there with putting a fake convertible top on a car (especially something like a Concorde - don't laugh, I saw one once and it was sobering, not to mention bloody ugly).

    I did think that monitor adapter was a nice idea, but what the heck is that wire(?) arrangement hanging off the head rest for???
  • What's wrong with them? Which ones are they?? I had some MXV4 Plus installed and had the car alligned and I now get a slight drift to the left.. Going back to the dealer to get the allignment re-checked.

    I like chrome on a car if done right. The Vmaxx is not too bad. The Yahoo photo is terrable. The fender chrome looks totally out of place. I would like to have a Sebring Convertable rear trunk chrome assembly (the one that surrounds the Plate) because it looks like the Hemi C rear trunk. Remember the chrome door trim on the front grill.
  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    The wire is a coat rack, to put your suit on. Actually is is a good design, although could be impractical if you have rear passengers.
  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    They have some neat stuff. I like the idea of the wood trim made for different types of radios. The center monitor is nice but I think it could have been excuted better. I wish I didn't have to move to AZ after starting a German language class, it sure would have come in handy.

    That's an instant ugly mod!
  • Thanks for the link.
    The Spanish response was pretty mild. I guess after a couple of hundred years of occupation by the Moors, a brief landing seemed small potatoes.

    My son is about to order his next car. Have any of ya'll ever heard of a Caterham Super Seven?

    That's what he's about to oder. In my opinion, it would be a fun car to keep in the garage for a toy to drive on pretty weekend days, but he plans on it being his daily driver. Oh well, 30 years ago it was my dream car too, so I guess I can't say much about it. At 40 years old, I guess he's old enough to decide things like that for himself. I do have to agree that 0-60 in 5.8 seconds would be fun! Here's a link to the Caterham website:

    What do you guys think of a one piece oval tip, much like the one on the GTP Grand Prix. I think this would fill the large 8" x 3.5" cut out nicely. I think they are 6" X 3".

    Do larger tips produce a deeper sound?

    I will have to order them they are Ractive #T820 or #T815.

    It's interesting that the Startech modified M at the SD Autoshow had large oval squarish tips. (1 per side). Each was separated by a thin vertical metal piece primarily for looks, but I suppose also for a little support against accidental "crushing". I did like the looks of them and will consider getting some when my present tips wear out. As far as sound, there may be a little difference with different tips, but it's really the muffler/resonator/pipe combo that changes the sound, so I wouldn't worry about that. Go with what looks best to you.
