      I canít do that. I donít have it in me. Iím stealthy and persistent. Iíll get there over time. Iím lucky i got the spot i parked in today. Thereís a new crv a lady in my office drives and itís a new novelty so she is parking carefully. I give it a week or two max and Iíll be in the original spot i took when we came to this bldg (the spot i was in today).

      That is a much better idea. Someone gave me one of those and I put it up in our driveway and everyone loves it.

      Is this actually something you can purchase? Because I know someone that needs one

      EDIT: Nevermind, it's easily found in 20 places with a Google search. Like IPD. *facepalm*

      Last weekend (wow, a whole week went by??), my wife and I were headed to the store to pick out some paint. It's cold now, so projects are indoors.
      She used her remote to unlock the s60 and then got in to start her car. It said in the message center - "start disabled". Tried my key (valet, since I don't want two massive keys on my ring), and it started fine.
      I swapped with her, giving her the nicer remote and everything seems fine. I read this morning about an antenna in the steering column that may be going bad, but I can't find much information on it and don't want to throw parts at it and obviously don't want her to be stranded somewhere.
      Remote seems to work fine otherwise, so it's not the battery on the remote.

      "engine immobilizer antenna" is what someone mentioned online somewhere (not here). Will VIDA detail this for me/notice if there's a problem, give me a part number to look up and get at FCP/Tasca?

      The immobilizer antenna is in the steering column. Is your battery okay? I’ve gotten immobilizer and other weird messages when my battery gets low. I recently had this happen because my car has been sitting in the garage for over a week to do the radiator and a few other things. When I started it to move the car, I got the same message. Started right up in the second try, oddly.

      Shouldn't be, but I'll check. I recall it died and AAA replaced it at the house not long ago (maybe last year? the year before at most).
      Looking for a part number and some instructions on replacement so I know what I may be contending with.

      I believe VIDA will tell you if something is wrong with it. It told me the light was burned out on the ignition antenna assembly.

      OK then - I'll sit ensconced in heated leather tomorrow and see what I can find out.

      Might be age.
      Might be the beer.
      As associates and above we get to enjoy this perk after hours. Itís been a stressful week.

      A Hefeweizen and an ipa. Take your pick!

      I love my Volvoís. All of them. And I love the collaboration and camaraderie of SwedeSpeed. Have a good weekend all! Long live the R.

      So, if you're worried about her getting stranded, does that mean she gets to drive the R until it's sorted?

      Iím used to seeing people in my rear view taking a pic of my tag for the last 33 years but today it was unreal. It happened every single time I was stopped. In the span of a three mile trip it happened four times. Lol. My s60 is out there on the inter webs and so is the tropic blue-green but not the passion... yet. Iíve been looking and other than the ones I post I havenít seen it.

In the span of a three mile trip it happened four times. Lol. My s60 is out there on the inter webs and so is the tropic blue-green but not the passion... yet. Iíve been looking and other than the ones I post I havenít seen it.
      I put a craigslist ad up asking for photos of your car and offering money.

      What is is about the costco that makes people lose their minds??
      Getting gas last night *almost* everybody had jammed their car up to the first pump they could get to, without worrying about the side the filler is on...
      I know the hoses come from the top and can reach, but if you're driving something tall or something really nice, what the hell are you doing??
      I should have come back around and taken a picture. It was insane.

      Most staff encourages both sides. I mock ppl in bimmers who think their cars are worth waiting in gas line for. I also laugh when I see Maseratis pull up in a Costco gas... poor manís Ferrari indeed.

      Also, the Costco, not just the gas, by my house is know as the hell hole Costco due to the extremely riotous Chinese population. Itís really shameful...

      LOL. That reminds me of this thing that someone sent me.

      When it comes to moderately priced chain grocers, Atlanta is loaded with sweeping generalizations and lighthearted stereotypes. Sure, even non-Atlantans have heard of the legends like Murder Kroger (R.I.P.) and Disco Kroger, but the fun hardly stops there. (For example: Stinky Kroger!)

      I do that all the time at Costco, like the guy with the Bimmer above. Hold hose with one hand, hold nozzle with the other hand, hose never touches paint - pretty easy. Their hoses are really long, lol.

      I love Costco, we go maybe once every three weeks or so, and try to pick low traffic times for store nearest us (still 20 minutes away) or go to the newer store 30 minutes away if we're in that part of town.

      High traffic times at our nearest Costco is sort of like full contact shopping - aggressive drivers in the parking lot and even more aggressive in the store, lol. I try to stay away from free sample hours as that just heightens the traffic. I've seen folks literally getting in verbal altercations waiting in the rotisserie chicken line at the back of the store - pretty funny.
