I'm a big believer in developing a relationship with people at the dealership. If they know who you are, know your preferences, and if you treat them with respect, I don't know how you could have a...

I had the dealer put one on our Starfire Pearl RX, and I wouldn't do it again. After a little more than a year, I can see a just a touch of yellowing. Really, it's almost none, and I'm not sure...

Is that on the back or front door? Not that it matters. If it were my car, I would take it to a paint shop for several reasons. Mostly because a paint shop will do a better job than I would, and it...

I'll start off with the standard disclaimer that neither the 350 nor the 450 are intended to be race cars. They simply have a different purpose, but we ALL know that.
