Man, the Speeds are awesome cars but they seem to have a German car-level of nitpickiness. It seems like they always have something popping up to nickel and dime you! Good luck man.

Manual transmissions, wagons, and heavy metal are awesome. Zoom-Zoom \m/

It doesn't help that is a car that has been driven in Minnesota winters and I only paid about $3,000 for it.

I just bought an '04 6s from New Jersey and am a little nervous about its first Maine winter, haha. New England winters eat 1st-gen 6's alive. I plan to do a ceramic coating and Fluid Film the absolute f@#k out of the underbody.

Ensure you place FF or suitable other creeping, wax-oil like material along the entire running length of where the rear inner wheel-house meets the (rear) quarter panel (i.e. on the inside) and if you cannot gain access to the entire length due to bulkheads, fuel filler bulkheads, etc. then consider drilling access holes (only a few) to be finished with nylon flush-plugs when done - so as to be able to introduce said protective material. Also, it seems to me that scrupulous attention to rockchips is of paramount importance. Also, OILING subframes? Spent engine oil (or heavier consistency hydrocarbon?)...

That's what I want. The timing chain issue makes me a little nervous, so I want to go through the motor to make sure it doesn't have any more issues.
