Re: Brand New Dunlop Graspic Winter Tires and SE Rims for Sa

Thank you waterdog. I won that auction, and the tires will be be very useful when slogging through Seattle Slush and the Cascades Concrete that we call snow. Sorry to see such low interest in the auction. If those of us in the ownership community don't actively trade parts, it'll be very difficult/...

Re: Any I Witnesses?

Oh have faith, there are more everyday!! Remember, there are a lot less Mitsubishi dealers than Nissan/Chevrolet/BMW. i-MiEVs are in pockets around great dealers -- in Bloomington/Normal, IL you see them everywhere!! My first live sighting was in Seattle Washington -- it was the President of the Sea...

Re: How to fix under steer

If you think i-MiEV understeers -- the ICE i-car pushes worse than a dump truck. It makes i-MiEV seem like a sports car!! But they race ICE i-cars in Japan so aftermarket products are available for EUR and J-spec i-MiEVs..... Does anyone know about larger sway bars for NA i-MiEV? The EUR and J-spec ...

Re: Acoustic vehicle alerting system (AVAS)

The "safety police" do not allow it to be turned off or changed. In fact, the US Government is preparing exacting specifications for volume, frequency and tone.....another waste of my tax dollars!!

Re: Acoustic vehicle alerting system (AVAS)

iDriver -- Nice!! I too think the stereo is more effective.

The AVAS is the electric hum you hear at low speeds. Its very noticeable if you have driven other i-MiEVs without the system -- they are nearly silent.

Re: Our Gas Free Miles Travelled

17135 miles as on today . I was spending $450/month on gas. Now, because I have an i-MiEV, the utility put me on a EV rate. My electric cost (with i-MiEV) has gone DOWN $50/month. So, monthly net fuel savings -- $500. And, I used to use a tollway to avoid traffic -- now, HOV lane baby!! That's anot...
