    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link you posted earlier seems to highlight the four major players in the Pocket PC GPS arena...too bad it is a little outdated (July 2001) any review over 6 months old in this area is quite old as it is evolving quickly.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.

    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!

  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    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.

    be there or turn in your keys.

    Avalanche (Osman)?? He used to post here all the time? He was always doing some radical mods to his M .... His hood scoop was way cool ....

    anyone else having trouble posting on the club boards? It won't recognize my ID/PW.
  • fuzzywuzzyfuzzywuzzy Posts: 958
    Last I heard was he was tring to sell the M. He bought an NSX to mod out even more then the M. A better suited car to mod then the M. I don't know if he sold it though. He was listing it on Ebay, but it never appeared.
  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    Now that you are a board member, you can not go to the club site............. just kidding, Doc said it would be off line a lot for the next few days, because it is being moved. See what happens when you miss the chat sessions.
  • 300michael300michael Posts: 1,815
    I believe he sold it already.

    The rotors on my 01 non-php M are warped. I plan to get them turned, but with 21k on them, I've also thought about changing the rotors out to cross-drilled or slotted rotors with higher integrity than the OEM rotors?

    I saw an earlier post talking about surestop cross-drilled rotors. Any thoughts on this brand or preference between cross-drilled and slotted?
  • silverbullet4silverbullet4 Posts: 449
    I showed up at the 5* bright and early. They estimated 2 hours to replace the Body Control Module, and sure enough, I was out of there by 10:30 AM. I was so happy to have the problems fixed that I went to the auto parts place and picked up a California Waterblade. (Kinda pricey for a piece of rubber!-$23.40 including tax.)

    Last day of school in our district-with the kids home next week I will have no chance to post! LOL

    I wish everyone a safe and fun Memorial Day.

    If you are unable to get to the Club web site using the "" address as we change over, you can get there using the IP address:

    That address is

    You can get there now, but all the member directory files may not be present yet.
  • detroit01mdetroit01m Posts: 7
    Thanks Scotian.

    I take it your slotted rotors are working better than the previous cross-drilled rotors.

    How are the KVR pads in relation to the Porterfields you had prior?

    Here's beach15's AV and AV's NSX! ;-))

    Not sure if he sold it.

    I picked up a 2001 factory Infinity head unit and the In-dash 4-CD player on ebay for my 1999 which had the single-play CD/head unit only. Working on putting it in tonight. Everything went together extremely easy -- plug and play, basically. However, the CD player doesn't seem to want to work. It loaded one CD, but wouldn't play it -- the light on the CD player button continued to flash, and an "error" message shows on the head unit. I disconnected the power a few times, but same result. Now, all four of the CD player button lights and the Ready button light flash continuously. Since my manual doesn't describe this stereo, I'm hoping someone out there with a 2000+ model might check their owner's manual and help me out. What do the flashing lights mean? Am I doing something wrong? I bought the unit from a wrecking yard, so I can return it if necessary. I just want to make sure I'm not doing something wrong.

    Thanks in advance!

  • denvermdenverm Posts: 358
    I checked my 2000 owner's manual and couldn't find anything on the CD changer problem you describe (nor any other CD changer troubleshooting info, other than to try another CD before considering service). Good luck!
  • glennbpglennbp Posts: 327
    Disconnect power from the receiver, but leave the CD changer connected. Wait a few minutes, then re-connect the receiver. This resets the receiver-changer interface. If that doesn't work, my guess is the changer is defective. Hope it works!
  • easyrider300measyrider300m Posts: 1,116
    you could just remove the fuse that goes to the radio/changer. If that doesnt work, double check that you put in the cd's the proper direction---printed side up--or try a few other cd's--are you using self recorded discs or commercial recorded discs? Some members have complained that some self recorded discs wont work right. You may even try a laser pickup cleaner disc just in case their is dust on the pickup. Just trying to cover all bases. Good luck!

    Has anyone tried lowering their 300M. I have a 2001, decided to make this a project this weekend. Purchased a H & R spring set that lowers the car about 1.4". Done other cars before so I didn't think this was a big deal however the kit came with transmission and engine spacers to keep the driveshaft aligned. Does anyone have any experience or advise? this seems more than I bargained for. .....

    sdmike2- if you drive out for the tour I will buff your car myself!!;-)
  • achanceachance Posts: 106
    Damn, I love this car! Sun's out, roads are dry, leaves are turning green - bare-belly-buttoned babe in the crosswalk says, "Cool Car." If it weren't for fast cars, young women, and old whiskey, we could all work at the video store!
  • glennbpglennbp Posts: 327
    A lot has been discussed on this subject both here and on the 300M enthusiasts club board.

    Basically here is the info in a nutshell:

    1. If you have PHP, then you may not need the spacer kit to avoid vibration.

    2. If you don't have PHP, then you probably will need the spacer kit installed (although a couple folks that have lowered their M's say they don't have vibration even without PHP and no spacer kit.

    3. A few folks with the spacer kit installed AND PHP still report a little vibration.

    I'm not sure what this all means, but my suggestion is to change out the springs first and then see if you experience the dreaded vibration. If not, fine. If you do, then add the spacer kit.
