    New to me - 2006 QC. 115k on it. Just had trans replaced before I bought it. Been enjoying it. Plan to do the routine maintenance items on it to start with.

    No, I leave the dust since it hurts nothing and she has never been clay barred or molested - Battery is kept on maintenance, oil and fluids get changed and we run her up now and then to keep the 15 year old stock tires round :eek:

    If I decide to driver her, I will take her to Dan at whatever Dan's Performance is now called and have him massage her from head to toe and get her all up to date for me. I want to do brake lines and power steering lines and a few misc. things. BUT that's a minute or two down the road for now :D

    I won't I know they are only good for about 6 years - BUT until I'm ready to really use her, no reason to buy a second set to ROT, right? :cool:

    Yep, stock Pirellis - a little square but after a hundred miles - well, they are still square LOL LOL . My advice is to not go over 55 on them - hahaha.

    I let Yetti take her in, he is like you, lives on fear!!!
