Had a Z3 and got tired of dragging the hard top around. A black/grey SLK 280 came on the market nearby and loved the styling, feel, drive and....no more hardtop in the bedroom lol. He knew zip about it, gift for the wife, so your site has helped tremendously in understanding the car.
I'm planning on the usual stuff like smarttop, the holy grail cup holder and A20 changeout with, fingers crossed, speakers somehow switched into those unusual cutouts. I'm sure when faced with wires, enthusiasm and limited knowledge I'll be needing help. I see beers in the future of local, finger-pointing-to-correct-wires help. :) And if too many beers and not enough enthusiasm, directions to reliable local shops lol. Thanks again for a great site and the regular posters that make it great.

ZAP & Tesla - electric cars -2007-09-20 20:30:54 by mental-vacation
ZAP vehicles are ugly as sin, but are in Santa Rosa (near San Jose CA). I have seen a couple in Portland and one in Salem. And look for the Tesla's coming soon (not ugly at all) and are in San Carlos, CA.
Also check out "Who Killed the Electric Car" on DVD. Lots of information on hybrids as well.
Like it was said before, there have been decades of "energy" spent developing the gas engine. Of course any New product will take comparatively more effort and resource to make. But once any new product is standard equipment the point is moot, like Air Bags. Hell, it takes less effort to make a horse carriage, but that doesn't mean we should go back to buggies - or does it?
