lol in lebanon there is nothing called warranty on mechanical parts just body work... so you pay everything concerning maintenance unless you buy the car new from the company then they'll give you warranty for 3 years
but if you buy it used then its all on you
but then again labor isnt as neck breaking as it is in the united states
the guy will change your oil for free if you buy it from him
swapping my rod bearings with new ones and including everything a to z labor was 400$ :P so it has its good moments

The vehicle has been meticulously maintained throughout the life of the car. I must say, the warranty has come in handy since my ownership as I've gotten about 9-10K worth of work done on it. The thing is I am a real estate broker and I do a lot of driving and I'm wondering if I should keep it. What would you do?:

a) Roll the dice and keep it

b) See if I can extend the warranty at a cost that makes sense

c) Garage this rare beaut and get a daily driver

d) Sell it and let someone else enjoy her with 5K left on the warranty

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Wowza, that's about 25% of what it runs in the US (~$140/hr). Where did you find a 6 speed manual by the way - USDM import?

I let my warranty expire at 50,000 miles. Today, I'm at 133,000 miles. I have been without a warranty and riding bareback for the last 83,000 miles.

In fact, when my warranty expired at 50,000 miles, the warranty went unused.
