After about 8 months of a wide variety of driving I have to say I love them. Great grip in all conditions, smooth riding and quiet on all but the most rough roads. New tires are a joy!

I am quite enjoying my 07 3.0i with 6 speed manual. You lose a few horses but still a great roadster.

Check out Pelican parts, but you will probably want to replace both. You will get some weird handling with two different aged struts.

I drove my 07 3.0i on a 450 mile trek and it was a joy for the trip on I-75 and i-10. The truck has quite a bit of room as long as you aren't taking too much stuff. A good sized suitcase will fit...

Goofy video series

One of the reasons I did pick the BMW Z4 over others was actually the trunk space. All things considered I liked the Z4 more than the Miata, Honda 2000, or Solstise, but the trunk space was a great...

Is that a fair price? If so I am really happy to pay just under $15k for my 07 with only 23,350 miles.
