I need to replace my upper radiator hose next time I drain the coolant... Temporarily fixed with a better clamp. Got any pics of the hoses? Are they for the SC300, SC400, or both?

what is this connector for, optional car phone?

I'd never seen this little connector until pulling out the power antenna to replace the broken mast. The wire was tucked under the plastic drain/vent box in the wheel well. It looks like it was...

I've waffled a bit, but my gut feeling is, I'll be happiest with this car long term if I keep it stock. There's plenty of power on tap, it just needs to be made more responsive. The A/T solenoid...

That's exactly why I assumed it was the same 5-spd auto. Everyone says the A/T SC3 is much slower than its SC4 counterpart, but the '00 SC3 I drove was surprisingly lively. Maybe the newer engines...
