      I retrofitted cruise into my car. I made the decision to add it after a long drive into Canada. The switches you are referring to are threaded. I bought the sheetmetal clips, but I would recommend...

      Haha, I replaced prop valve earlier this year. You can get them from the dealer, but they won't be stainless. They are M8x60mm flat head cap screws. They are part number 92125A302 at McMaster Carr.

      Get a dremel and carefully cut it off with abrasive wheels (preferably the reinforced kind). Use them to grind the thing down to nothing until you can snap it off with a screwdriver.

      Root beer, it is not purely a 100% a cosmetic upgrade. Your braking is limited by lack of grip from the tires. The tires stop the car. These cars have no problem locking up the wheels. It is a...

      The front end design of this car is brilliant. The car is designed to be serviced without depressurizing the system. If it is anything like the 2.0, you should be able to drop the radiator down to...

      2) move window up or down so you can access the clamps holding the glass
      3) loosen nuts on clamps
      4) in the clamp, peel the rubber away from the glass (stuck together...

      An LSD would still do wonders for a stock engine.

      If they are going to cut the rusty area out, weld in some sheetmetal and then refinish, I think that price is worth it.

      If possible, have them grind away the underbody coating in the wheel well...

      I would say half the base of that strut tower is rust. You could tell by the bubbling of the red paint that things are bad. If you poke/scrape at it with a screwdriver, you'll get a good idea of how...

      Forget about that brake combo. It is all marketing. Ceramic has huge shortcomings. Believe me, been there and done it. They may have gotten better but still lags far behind from semi-metalics. Cross...

      Go for Enkei RPF1's, lightest budget wheel available. Get Dunlop Starspecs too if available. The lighter the wheel the better.

      Consider a rear sway bar, but get one you can adjust. The car can get...

      Hopefully that race gas wasn't leaded fuel. Bye bye cats if so.
