Looks like I have a weekend project. I'm almost sure that strip is just garnish. The top from what I understand is glued on. I can see this being an insurance nightmare if the top gets vandalized or...

The carriage top on both those cars look just fine or should I say indifferent to the overall car. It blends in well and its not loud. I don't think anyone could call it tacky.

It's not a question so much if I like it, more like if 'm willing to live with it and it doesn't come off as ugly to the majority of people who see it. At the bare minimum if most people are...

Very true. I consider the top as a modern throwback without the white wall tires. It grows on you but more then that it makes the car look a little more regal then plane. Maybe a little more...

I don't like carriage tops however It really depends on how it's implemented with the right color, matching interior and wheels. The top is also not vinyl, it's high quality fabric and there are no...

I didn't mean it that way to say boring is a bad thing. For a car like this boring ownership removes you from making your life revolve around the drama of your car. In my opinion that is real luxury.

I haven't checked but I am almost certain they call for A3 rated oil that meets Mercedes spec which the 0w-40 euro provides for that extended interval. Using regular Mobil 1 5W-30 would be a...

I get some major consumption when I hit lift a lot on my other Toyota. When the engine revs up to 8300 rpms it starts consuming oil. I use 0W-40 in that car not because of the oil consumption,...

I don't know if the pressure of the fuel is enough during the intake stroke to get passed the rings considering the compression of the motor is much higher. I can see fuel dilution only occurring if...
