looks like a very nice color!
My car rules doesn't it :D It's Ice Blue.

It appears lighter normally. I assumed you also saw my other pictures at http://www.xs4all.nl/~armitage/

Unfortunately it's now pretty scratches at the drivers side just below the door (about 20 cm's or 7.8 inches for the metric challenged ;) ).

Mechanic tells me the problem was that the relayhousing came loose and hit the drive axle. Damaged the rubbers on the axle and caused grease to splutter around in the engine compartement. The relay housing was burned out and had to be replaced.

This was the second time. The first time was easter when I picked the car up and it wouldn't start. This latter instance I was cornering when the engine died on me.

I had smelled some burned plastic odor before on some occasions but couldn't locate the source (non technie).

Apparantly I'm the only one, so don't worry that this is common or anything. Let's hope it doesn't happen a third time!

Oh and regarding camera's: I'm no expert. I went for a cheap FinePix A204 (I think). 2 megapixels but no real good in unlit setting. Flasher works but display becomes useless.

Makes good pictures in daylight though...

I love that Ice Blue. Add that to the Artic Silver and Titanium as my picks. Too bad it might not make it to the States.
