I daily mine in the nice months. It's an interesting change from our other two cars. Daily duty isn't where it's best suited, though, as it only really comes alive when driven hard.

That's a beauty--I love the red interior. Curious, what's the ownership history on that car?

I think I turned 73,850mi on my '02S this morning.

I wonder if...

Thanks for the suggestion. The car sits a bit higher in the rear at rest, so I'm not sure that's my issue here...that seemed to change after the suspension install, actually.
