#8157 of 26385 Sunroof wind deflector by BeneVento
Aug 13, 2001 (8:51 am)
Someone posted on this subject recently. Here is a product I can personally vouch for, having just installed one on my M. http://www.wooddash.com/item/CHRYSLER_Wind_Deflectors_300M_99_2001
I "won" one on an EBay auction for a pretty good price, compared to the asking price.
The visor is very substantial, not flimsy like some of these things that stick on with adhesive. The mounting consists of 2 simple clips, but the visor is very sturdy once installed and cinched down. It has a heavy duty rubber gasket that prevents scratching and finishes off the installation very nicely. It really fits the shape of the sunroof too.
I think it's a resonable value, even at the retail asking price.
I'm posting this in the Aftermarket Accessories/Modifications too.

Hello from the doctor! I think I read in a previous post that you/your Mom got the dell 8100 series PC: Sha-weeeet! Thats what I got, and boy am I loving it: 80 GB hard drive, 17 inch monitor, cd/dvd, cd-rw, 1024 voice SoundBlaster card, 56K (okay, so its not broadband....but its MINE!..) and the other standard stuff that it comes with. Also comes with MusicMatch JukeBox. You CAN jack into the web for internet radio stations, but when you set this up, it INSISTS on connecting to the web, even if all you want to do is play a cd! Try as I might to stop it, I've found no place to tell it NOT to.
Given the fact that it took Dell three trys to get my pc configured correctly, it was worth the wait. for my troubles, the sent me: 1. an inexpensive digital camera (read here as NO preview screen), an HP scanner, upgraded my speakers to the THX-Dolby -certified ones AND threw in an additional 256 KB of RD-RAM, AND a UPS power system (7-17 minutes after a power failure to shut down properly).
Additioanlly, I just LOVE the dark agate (black?..) appearance of the system. Good luck with your Mom's PC....is it your turn next?

sdmike2 and 300mlover - Happy Birthday from the staff and management of the Chrysler 300M Enthusiasts Club.
If you had put your birthdays on your membership application, you would have received Birthday cards from the 300M Enthusiasts Club. I just checked the records and the birthday space was left blank for both of you. Just a little extra service we provide. We mail out quite a few each month.

Hit the 5* this am for a service before the trip to Michigan for the Woodward Dream Cruise meeting of 300Mers. Had them check the rotors for warping just to be sure its the Badyears on the low speed wobble. Rotors found to be fine. Looks like I'll be dumping these badboys at 32K when I get back from Detroit. And with the spouse's blessing!! Sometimes you just luck out. I think I will be going to 245/45-17's on the stock 17 x 7 Razorstars if the tire guys agree with Av that that will work. I may try the Goodrich "Scorpions" I think is the name. You can get up to 3 color lines in the tread. They are cheaper than the Pilots or Potenzas. Dealer had no 2002 Ms in yet,
his last two 01s are gone now and they had no idea when they would get any. On the Special they just shrugged and said we never know when or if it will be built or show up. What a system.

My tire dealer just called. my Pilot XGT Z4's are in. I'll get them put on Wed. !
Then straight to the alignment shop to have my bro hook it up RIGHT!
tuscongil, thanks for the feedback, I can't wait!!
jedi_knight, man I love those rims!
I've always been a fan of the 5 spoke design since the days me and my buddys had Cragar S/S and Keystone Raiders on our Mustangs back in the 70's. That's probably why I'm a big fan of the CHROME Razorstar wheels on our 300M's.
Who'm I kidding, probably nuthin. After test driving the car and seeing the streetlights reflect of those rims. I was sold, I had to have that Deep Slate Pearlcoat car with THOSE rims.
So does anyone know who the original manufacturer of the RazorStar rims are? are they available in a 18" size or 8" or better width? Where can i get them?
Those KMC Tramps are really SWEET. I love that 5 spoke look!

Happy Birthday Guys.
Hope you got lots of cool stuff (specially for your M's
Having a great family and friends is the best part bout birthdays.
having cool stuff like your 300M to give you solace as you age is pretty cool too!
I know, as one who got his office completely redecorated in black balloons, streamers and silly string last year on the big 40.
My advice is get in your 300M, crank the tunes way up (try some red hot chili peppers or black crowes) and wave and laugh mainiacly as you pass them on the way home.
They'll think it's some mid life crisis. just smile and enjoy not having to act your age!
#8166 of 26385 stainless steel air filter?? back to the future?
Aug 13, 2001 (12:14 pm)
saw the stainless steel air filter advertised on Ebay.
Geez, are they going back to the 40's for auto technology???
I remember as a kid my uncles old early 50's chevy pickup having an steel wire mesh, oil bath air filter.
The oil splashed and sprayed up from the tray of the air filter housing onto the mesh to trap dirt particles from the airflow thru the wire mesh filter. When I saw that thing on ebay thats what it reminded me of.
Maybe it works fine. I dunno. I'll stick to my K&N, Thanks.
