    How much more "abrupt" or noisy is the convertible versus the coupe? This 1998 only has a tick over 7,000 miles but it seems to "thud and thump" much more than my 2002 coupe did. It also gives the...

    I'm asking myself why the original owner didn't take care of the issues as they arose? Is that roof panel bent in the corner? That will also be a nasty leak in any sort of rain. I don't know what...

    DiabloSport tuning?

    Has anyone ever tried this brand to enhance performance. I think for me it would be quite academic since they list 1999 and up. For some reason they exclude the 1998. Is that because of a lack of...
