This thread is the only reason i haven't sold my '08 yet. i'm just about to hit 150k miles. OE stock everything motor and clutch wise but the 08 was soft so i had to get coils and sways. That said the little things are starting to hit the wallet. had a wheel baring go, radiator, one of air pump valve went (this was a kick to the pants at $700), ocv went, valve covers and the ac pump went in the last 2 years. but otherwise she purrs and pulls like she always has.
I'm with you though keep the motor stock , regular maintenance, drive it like a car and any time you notice any thing new going on take it to the dealer and have them take a look at it.
love this thread!
