Had mine replaced a few months ago, 2002 C4S with a Tip.
Engine and trans had to come out.

I usually like to do the work myself but this was one time I happily wrote the check. :cheers:

So what are you guys using to clean your rims?

I'm getting ready to tackle a pad and rotor change on my stock 2002 C4S.
Thought I would do a good cleaning of my rims inside and out.

Thanks, Pete

Not sure if that applies to every model year with a Tip.
They found a leaking coolant hose, minor dollars $.

Nothing else really.
Less then 12,000 miles ago, spark plugs, coils, water pump, belt, coolant tank and Tip trans service was all done at the same time.

Thank you for the quick replies.

I don't think I will tackle this job myself.

Ballpark figure as to how much this repair will cost?

My car has a Tip if that makes a difference.

Lots of white smoke on startup AOS?

This happens every time I start the car, crop duster amount, very bad.
It clears up pretty fast.
I tried to unscrew the oil filler cap when idling, no way, it's not budging.
My car is a 2002 C4S....

Very nice.
My 02 is silver, polish it, don't polish it, pretty much the same.
Lately I have switched from Zaino to the Chemical Guys products.
I'm trying to talk myself into seeing a difference:)
