    This does not mean the p5 is going anywhere though!! Still staying with me, just won't be a daily any longer. Bought it July 2009 and retiring July 2019 with 247k (173k done by me). Two drives across the country and countless memories behind the wheel of it.

    Sorry to hear, they were great cars. I still see a yellow one from time to time in my travels around Ottawa. Brings a smile to my face.

    Seeing as how I am always full of crap, I'm totally going to try and fix the p5 once more before I give up on it. Could be as simple as the corrosion on the battery terminal to which I cannot get the negative off. Out comes the dremel to cut the bolt!

    Actually looking at ms3's for the replacement. 1st gen.
