Greetings from 150K!

I just passed the 150,000 mile mark this past weekend, so I thought I'd check in with a progress report.

While I'm still annoyed by the radio taking so long to actually change stations once you push the button (Seriously! It's like 10-15 seconds sometimes!) and the occasional unresponsiveness of the comfort access not unlocking the doors as I repeatedly grab the handle, I have had zero maintenance or service issues.

I do still have the problem where, when I put gas in it (doesn't matter if it's a full or half tank or what brand), it won't stay on idle until I drive a few miles. If I stop at a light or something it runs rough and dies unless I keep the RPMs up manually.

I replaced the plugs, brake pads/rotors at 100K (not a difficult job on either) and will do the hoses and belts this weekend probably. Doing my own oil and filter changes (about time to replace the ridiculously expensive cabin air filters again...) as well as the plug/brake/hose/belt stuff.

Car still looks good, runs great and I still really enjoy driving it!
