"Just doing my part to be part of the solution, instead of the problem" Okay, It's time to go smell my own farts! Ahhhhh

Later I am giving out pollution citations to SUV and diesel owners.
Good For Me!......................Thanks!

Rebuilt battery pack 2 months ago. ...Out of 38 batteries in the pack, only one was low.
This is going to be an adventure, 2002 first generation...Wish me luck. (The learning curve is quite steep.) Bought it as a local commuter car.
Some of these have gone over 500,000 miles; many way over 300,000 on the first batteries.

Congrats, tell us how you like it. I know someone with a 1st gen with mechanical issues I was debating picking it up.

I am surprised - my lap top batteries don't last that well.

I do wish you luck =>

If you learn any good battery related tips (such as where iwrock gets $150 battery packs from) please let us know. I'm seriously considering making my W123 into a hybrid!
