Itís funny going back and reading this thread; over the years Iíve replaced the steering wheel with a sport model, added first an RF modulator and then a Dension, added clear markers, and repacked the sticky knobs (that turned out to be a $150 set of parts, fwiw). Also added the sport exhaust and a GT3 shift knob, and 20,000 miles.

Relatively light interventions, considering how long you've had it.

20,000 miles in 10 years? What...do you drive it backwards to keep the miles down?

I was thinking the same thing. That's a good 9 months for us.

I drive it once every few weeks in the winter and probably once or twice a week in the summer. Iíd probably drive it more if it werenít such a pain to uncover and unplug, but the upside is that means I rarely drive it in the rain.

It was funny driving it todayóitís the slowest of my three cars by a pretty substantial margin, and more than that itís power delivery is languid compared to the other two. But itís so precise and easy to placeósuch a pleasure to drive, especially with the top down.

Oh, no, I don't think so--I went looking for their website 5 or so years ago and it seemed to be gone.
