I am seriously considering buying a complete set of sensors and such just to have as spares for when more things fail.
Man...with all of that stuff going out, I'd look into a new alternator!

Creaky calipers. I have just come to except it that they creak whenever I touch the brakes.

Close second is being broke. Almost always seems to happen.

False no/low oil pressure readings

Exhaust leaks

Random suspension pops, and having to replace all inner/outer tie rod ends now.

1) My hardtop whistles when driving. Nothing I can do and have done stops it from whistling. I can lower the window to fix it, but then I have to deal with louder wind noise.

2) Various interior creaks and squeaks. I'm ready to just rip out the whole dash.

3) Hoorkers.

Mine too.

I've had the car for 5 months now and it still hasn't seen the track. Been fixing an overheating issue with the supercharger FMIC.

Been having issues with heel-toe downshifting. Sometimes it works great and others times it feels like the brakes stutter or something. It doesn't help when the throttle isn't as responsive as naturally aspirated.

Have you thought about using a tube-and-fin intercooler rather than the bar-and-plate that seems to be "the thing"? Tube/fin allows for much more airflow...slightly less efficent though, oh and they're lighter weight. I've thought about doing this myself.

Nah, haven't tried that yet. Going to try a v-mount setup this weekend.

You ditched the cassette for an AuxMod? I did that and have no problems...love it. My little MP3 player has an adjustable EQ and it makes the Bose actually sound decent.

I have a after market HU that does ipod and aux. I use the ipod all the time BUT if I rock my iphone for GPS I use the aux and last time I used it it was nothing but feedback. It sounds like I have a supercharger haha

Ahhh ok. I know when I've plugged an iphone into my aux cable, it like to make noise unless you really push the jack into the phone with force.
