hmmm so you didn't say this then?

Sounds like your implying we don't know mph to me, and that makes your second statement completely false....

Because you never said that up did the "tune up". If you did, then you should have said something. Did you change the antenna? Once you did the "tune up", did you test for the range as indicated in your manual specifications? Again, you should have said something.......

So how far can you control your car now?

Here, in the US, there are two units of measurements in our speedometer, MPH and KPH. The MPH is in large letters and the KPH is in small letters. What does your large letters read? If you only have one then it will be in KPH. That is how the BMWs here in Germany are. Unless it is US specs, then it will have two, MPH and KPH.

Yeah - over all it is a good car, but I really miss having a truck.

simply put, all uk cars have mph in big letters, thats how we measure stuff (generally) over here, ie the imperial system. We have the KPH on the car, cause thats what the rest of the european community use, so helps when we (the brits) want to go across to the continent.

Alright, I think it's time to close this thread. Nothing productive is happening here, and this shouldn't be in the Electric Forum to begin with.

To ajg: making claims without some sort of absolute proof is never a good idea. When you have a video of a car with a radar gun showing how fast it is going, then people will stop ripping on you. Plus, your signature is way, way, way too big.

To many of you: there is NO excuse for personal attacks and foul language on here. Keep that in mind in the future.
