Re: Stock Shocks Replacement Options

How many miles on your car? You should be fine until at least 75K or so on suspension parts. No chance that your dealer is suggesting a change just because he knows he'll be making a mint on a hard to find part, is there? :lol: 44k or so, I did look at the shocks this morning with another mechanic ...

Saw this iMiev pic today in a Cleantechnica article on Ecotricity charging and wondered if it belonged to a forum member? https://www.google.com/search?q=ecotricity+charging&prmd=nisv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjLz76Bg_ThAhXrhFQKHf34BFsQ_AUoAnoECA4QAg#imgrc=_3wP7jX2s913uM

Did you hear the contactor in the EVSE drop out as well? Was there a short but discernible (less than a second) delay between pressing the...
