    FYI - Maybe good discussion point

    I originally posted some of this in my trophy owners section, but thought it may be a good general Trophy cost of ownership discussion for newby's and long termers alike. This information has been compiled since I bought the car, way back in 2005. It's important to note that I had poly mounts...

    question about sensors.....
