Has anyone done this?

Just curious, but what happens if you plug in the Eupean Nav in the USB port when you are back in the States?

I have plugged it into a computer and couldn't open anything.

I notice in the first picture of your car there is no front license plate holder. By the time you drive it out of the building it is on. Do they always apply it just like that

I hope they don't...

How did you learn that? When you take redelivery are all damages/repairs disclosed? I ask because some cars are damaged in transit and I'm curious as to whether they divulge that.

We stayed at Albergo Milano in Varenna on Lake Como. We loved it. Great views of the lake and easy access to the ferry to go to Bellagio or the other side of the lake.

I wouldn't think so. FWIW, I put in a new battery because mine died. The odometer issue was the same before and after.

I question whether it is a matter of a sending unit. I think there is...

My speedo works fine.

This bugs me but it certainly doesn't make me want to get rid of the car.

I always keep some euros from my previous trip. Usually about 50-100, whatever I don't spend. It's easier that way and avoids the game of chicken at the end of your trip to have "just enough" cash. ...

It left Baltimore last night. It's current destination is SSI. What is that? Saint Simmons Island?
