I took tke long way coz I wanted to run it in a little 150 miles later I get pulled by the police. I was going a little fast (oops) but I had a good chat with them and they told me that it was my lucky day, and I was on my way....

We know the person as she stoped, the question is weather she is insured or not. But I do have her home address, and a good 9iron, if the worst comes to the worst.

Welcome and sorry to hear about that. Its just no fun to have a new toy and not be able to enjoy it. I had an issue with mine when we first got it and had to put it in the shop for about 5 days total. Well I hope its fixed better than before, go for the aftermarket.
