I'm the original owner; 'car will be 9 years old in May, and has total 95K+ miles. You can review my prior threads about S2 build in Jan. '05, and S3 upgrade in Dec. '06.
Bottom line: except for 2 front JRZ shocks replaced last year under warranty, 'car has been absolutely "bullet proof". 'Hasn't even "coughed", let alone anything breaking. Yes, I'm a fanantic about pro-active maintenance. 'Often get asked: "Is that car new??" and "What the hell are you running in that thing??"
'Car is still a quiet, smooth, luxury cruiser; but sound and fury when "balls to the wall" driving is always intoxicating. 'Never tire of this car.
Anyway, 'will update again in another year. Yes indeed!!
