Aftermarket iPod/iPhone audio hookup professionally installed in 2004 by Dashworks in Portage, MI. Lets you play music from your iPod and charge it at the same time.
Car has been serviced regularly at dealership and at mechanics that specialize in european cars. Never a missed oil change or other regular service.
Front brakes replaced in July 2011 and rear brakes serviced at same time.
At last service I was told a control arm needs replacing as well as front brakes. I opted to do the brake work and leave the control arms. Probably needs about $400-500 in suspension work. No noticeable problems when driving and might go a few thousand miles before anything needs to be done. Engine runs beautifully.
Exterior is starting to get some small rust spots, particularly in the wheel well areas and door jams.
Leather on rear seats is creased due to seats being folded down for extended periods. The leather does not look nearly as bad as the pictures make it seem, though.
Other then that this is a fantastic car. I do not put many miles on it because I live within walking distance to work. I typically only put 10-20 miles per week on it. Has been kept in a garage during entire period of ownership.
