I'd be surprised if a new seat made any difference. These seats are so firm and the car isn't that old. Which seats do you have, anyway? I wonder if there's any difference in max height between...

Squeaks and rattles will be luck of the draw, mostly. My car is pretty tight except for the folding rear seat which has come to squeak obnoxiously. One of these days I'll take some time and try to...

Ironic that it came out of the ground, but you can't put the stuff back there when you're done with it. :D (I know, I get it. No need for an ecology lesson in case anyone's tempted.)

To be clear, I wasn't trying to convey a horror story. Aside from the tranny issues, the rest is annoying but it was spread out over the years I've owned the car. It's still much more than I ever...

I assume wrapped = warped.

Unless the brakes are brand new, which it doesn't sound like they are, I don't think it's regarded as a failure of the parts, and definitely not normal wear. Good info...

Depends on the model. Could be true for the OP, but if he just has the base N52 car like mine it's 17" wheels for the sport package and 16's w/o.

17" refers to the diameter which is always the same at all four corners on these cars. I assume you really meant 8" vs. 8.5" width all around. I run a square setup for winter. It works just fine. ...
