  1. That could be the case. I really can't recall now but that was what I was thinking when I typed the response.
  2. It will be interesting to see what they say. I wrote them several years ago when the Dodge set up came out, but can't remember now why they said it wouldn't work on the Ford 3.7
  3. I don't think that it is Ford trying to "control our mods" at all. Ford knows that the Mustang fan base does more to customize our car than anyone. What they are trying to control is their warranty liability. How many times does the discussion come up, "if I have a problem I'll just set it back to stock and take it in"? Ford warranties the car that Ford built. Change a component or change the tuning - that is no longer the car Ford built. If you swap the radio no one expects Ford to warranty the audio system afterwards. But for some reason they expect Ford to honor the power train warranty when they modify the ECU or add a supercharger. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  5. *** SITE UPGRADE ***

    Tap a talk finally loaded the forum. I think it was a problem with the tap a talk app. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. *** SITE UPGRADE ***

    The new look takes some getting used to - not the same as the old new posts link. I'm also having trouble getting it to load on Tap a talk. Could be the app though, or that I didn't have a wifi connection. I've found that tap a talk will act up without a wifi connection sometimes.
  7. Driving record counts, but even with a clean record like my wife and I have, the rates are extremely high in Michigan. I couldn't believe the quote when I called to get her BMW insured down there. Can't put the SHO on that policy yet because it is still registered in Michigan and the cost to transfer it to North Carolina I decided to wait until the Michigan registration ends (have to pay sales tax all over again to register it down there)
  8. I mean the insurance for the SHO is almost triple what the coverage in NC costs me for the BMW Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. Michigan is probably the most expensive state for car insurance. My SHO is still licensed in Michigan. It is almost triple the cost for the BMW in North Carolina. When I move the insurance for both cars will be less than half of what it costs in Michigan. When compared to Ohio, just 15 miles south of me, the average cost for insurance is $1,800 less for the same car in Ohio compared to Michigan. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. My wife said that she thought I'd like to see some of the inside of the house. She has had to do all the unpacking. Last time I was down I had to put the beds together and other big items. Still need to mount the TV on the wall above the fireplace, but she hasn't found my drills yet, maybe this weekend when I go down. Last time I was down there were still a lot of boxes. Let's see if these end up sideways once uploaded.
  11. I called our insurance to see what the deductible is on that car (we licensed it in NC and got new insurance). We have a $500 deductible for collision - which is what we had on our Michigan insurance because it greatly reduced our rate. Since the insurance wouldn't cover much of it we are just going to pay out of pocket. Avoids any charged collision in the future. I asked him what it would be if I changed to a $100 deductible, only $70 a year. Called him back a few minutes later and said "change it", it would cost me around $500 a year to do it here in Michigan. He said, "she isn't planning to do a match on the passenger side now is she?"
  12. A little update. My wife has been working on our place in Winston Salem - we spent our anniversary in different states unfortunately. So she took care of some landscaping, new mulch and a small retaining wall Then she decided to pull her new BMW "in" to the garage Estimate is $678 to repair. Probably $500 of that is the marker light LOL. Man these BMW parts are expensive.

    I noticed this week that the forum is no longer on my tap-a-talk feed. Couldn't find it with a search either. So is it no longer available?
