Hi Ernie,

Is the first word "Big?" I have no clue about the second word.

Thanks for getting me the info on the wind-up key. So funny!

Ernie,

I love the wind-up key attached to the back of your smart car. Where did you get it? I couldn't decipher your license plate...

OBD port lives behind it's own little door just to the right of your right knee up under the dash, left of the 12 volt port back a bit. The door flips down and there it is. I am planning on mounting my scangauge right below my line of sight just above the steering wheel on top of the speedo- pod. The trick will be making blend in and not look so freakin ugly.

Hey Ernie,
I recieved an email from my dealer june 1 sayin my car had been built and was about to be shipped. Then this morning I got another email sayin the car was in port somewhere in southern cal. and it would be delivered to my dealer in seattle in about a week. As for the rest I'll let you know when it gets here.
