ill b staying in a sublet nears rodgers stadium. Now be forewarned:my car has no modifications other that the skull and crossbones decal i put on the back. I'd love to modify the car and i'd like advice on tires and other stuff i read about here. My car "go to guy" died last year so i really feel lost being in charge of the car on my own.Am I going to be in over my head?
found a 2005 coupe with 4000 miles for $15900~ Deal or No deal~what to you thin?

I was driving around Niagara Falls (Lundy's Lane area) today makeing a few stops (new front wheel lugs) and I stopped at Tim Hortons to meet up with an old friend for a coffee. I was standing in the parking lot waiting and a SSB coupe pulls in and parks beside me. I forget his name but he lives in St. Cathrines and he bought the car new. Chatted for a few minuets and he has heard of me somewhere. I was stunned, didnt know what to say...

Anyways, he loves the car and does not go on the forums.

Funny, I was in your neck of the woods, staying on Lundy Lane around the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th of this month, while there I only saw 3 xfires a white roadster that was headed toward the Casino, looked real nice. I saw a red coupe that went flying by us while we were eating the best Pizza I have had in a long time. The place was right on a corner but I don't recall the name of it.
When we were returning home on Sunday Morning, I spotted 2 more, a nice yellow roadster with the top up and a graphite coupe, both on the highway headed to Buffalo?
We had a great time and met some wonderful people, Je parle francais un ?
I speak a little french, used to speak fluently but have forgotten a lot.
I also know a guy called fiberboats in Moncton who has a red coupe. Steven Donelle. I'm Rick

Thank you for the sighting!

I picked it up for my wife today, it drove nice we managed to get it for 16 plus taxes.

I feel it was a fair deal. 32000km right on, I put on 39km test driving it!

later this week ill be making a fuel stop in the niagra area. The manual talks about avoiding some canadian fuels due to the type of additives,
Beaner do you or any other of the canadian contingency have advice for filling my 2005 limited coup while i'm up there?
in the unlikely event that i would need mechanicial assistance with the car when i'm in the toronto/niagra region does anyone have a recomemndation??
My biggest fear is that a bycycler is gonna end up in my left back blind spot on Spadina or Queen St and there's gonna be a crunch

thanks.i see a peameal sandwich in my future

Sunoco 94 octane, if you can still find a Sunoco station. I understand the Sunoco stations that have been converted to Petro Canada will carry the 94 octane also. Shell V-power is another option.

You have to set your mirrors so you do not have a blind spot, it can be done.

I'm not even sure I posted it. I tried before to have a bunch of folks come with us but there were no takers, had I looked into the possability of finding someone up there I certainly would have mentioned it. I figured if I spotted someone, we could get to talking but, like I said, there were just two, the whole trip, in Canada. They were both headed away from me. My car was parked in plain sight. I know if I see a crossfire parked somewhere, I stop and try to see if we can make friends. The wife and I liked it so much, we will definately come back, perhaps we can hook up next summer. In the mean time, I now am hooked up to this thread and get notifications when something new is posted. Just look me up and take a gander at my car, It's real nice with the new wheels and tires. Hoping to talk with you soon.
Rick (Crossfire Trail) Please look at my albums. and let me know what you think.

I figured out that issue when I had my coupe, I now have done the same with the Aero Blue Roadster. There are these little stick on mirrors that fit perfectly in the corners of the OEM mirrors. No more blind spots and they only cost $1.00 USD each, problem solved.
