Oh yeah, this law came in affect I believe two or three years ago and let me tell you...don't get into an accident with 4 season or summer tires 'cause this will not only buy you a hefty fine but will also give your insurance company reasons not to pay. They are now taking this business quite serious. I'm actually waiting on some new snow tires and Rims I order at Discount Tire Direct for my little Bimmer X1. UPS tells me they are held back at customs for clearance as of this morning. They better get here before the 15th!


These laws are crazy. The next thing you know they will pass a law in the US saying we can't use incandescent bulbs, oh wait, the idiots already did it! The states are supposed to be automonous and regulate themselves and the Federal Government is supposed to be here to form a national defence of the combined states. They should not be involved in their toilets and light bulbs and the old "National Speed Limit' of 55 MPH. Sorry about going off topic, I hate stupid laws! :offtopic: :soapbox:

Do you think the Canadian health care system may have had anything to do with this new law?

Could be linked to health care. Less serious winter car injuries, less money the province has to pour out of the health care system and maybe more in the polititians pockets!

Time for some pics... Last night I finished it up. Approx 20 hrs of labor went into this detail.

Dave and I smoked a celebratory cigar!

Washing it inside Dave's fantastic garage! Please pardon the quality of the first few pics. They were taken with my iPhone.

Race Red... :finger:

Yes you do... My pics are horrible! :doh:

I can't wait for a nice sunny day to take it outside. Maybe they will look nicer. The pics I posted didn't do the car justice. Dave is thrilled and it is like night and day. Even his wife agreed.

Geeze Peter, I think you have outdone yourself once again! ...at a loss for the correct words: Outstanding! Prystine! Exceptional! ...all of the these?

Adimittedly, I was horrified at the surface scratches on this spanking new car! How the F*ck does this happen? Like it was polished with a dirt rag!

Top Honors, my friend! I don't think Mr. Adams himself can out-detail your craft! :worship:

Thanks Rob... It was absolutely mystifying to see the amount of imperfections on a car with only 20 miles on it and not a day at the dealer.

And I didn't for get your question on the leather. My answer is use Griot's Leather Care. It was much better than Adams Leather Conditioner. Nicer leather smell and better properties.

to those who dont know, 250 assembly line photo's, all build sheets, and we know exactly where this car was at all times. watched it come off the transporter, and took it home un-prepped. the paint was scratched like it had sat in a yard for months, and ran through a automated car wash. we both said, if the dealer had prepped it, we would have assumed they scratched it up. now it looks like wet red paint. breath taking

My dealer prepped my car and delivered it to my house. This is the car in the driveway moments after it was delivered. There are no swirls or scratches in the paint according to my wife. She said it has a mirror finish and as you can see there is the reflection of my truck in the car along with the reflections of trees in my yard. It looks immaculate. No complaints about my paint job at all.

I'm with you there! My Dad, son, and I spent a week in Sitka last summer, fishing for king salmon and halibut. We had a GREAT time, and are still working our way through the ~150lbs of fish we brought home...
