Your are definitely correct - CA is non-rechargeable; non-CA I believe is, though I don't know for certain. I actually had my fob battery replaced about 4 months ago because it was virtually dead...

My guess is a weak or dead battery in your fob. I have CA and I get that error when the fob is out of range or hasn't been charged in the ignition for a while.

Yeah, one could make the argument that this COULD be an economy car, if you wanted it to be (at least behave like one). The thing that gets me is that it would have likely been higher if I would have...

31 mpg & 600 miles per tank

I normally drive this puppy like it's meant to, which means I typically average around 15 mpg or less. I've had as high as 27 mpg in calm highway driving in the past, but a couple nights ago I set a...

Hear, hear; you gotta stay young at heart. Aging, "acting old" and deterioration go hand in hand, imo.

Gran Turismo 5 - M5 vs GT-R

The highly anticipated Gran Turismo 5 just came out on Nov 24, and it looks amazing. I think I'll pick up a copy sometime this week. Great list of cars and tracks, though I don't know if the M6 is...
