$600, really? I think I paid around $175 back in 2003 only a few months after I bought the car. Very well made pieces and apparently no longer available. I came from an Alfa GTV6 Coupé with manual...

Check to make sure all six blinkers, including the two on the side, work properly. You have at least one faulty blinker.

Braking is solid and no issues. I put the front up on ramps and the bushings look fine visually but I'm going to replace them as they seem relatively simple to access. I'll still have my local shop...

The only thing I can think of is the front rubber lip on the under belly cover. I'll see if I could take a picture. Nothing in the trunk.
