    First time Eclipse owner. bought an 07 Spyder GT with only 16,000 km (10,000) miles. Even though it's 12 years old it looks like new. First time convertible owner as well. So far so good. Tons of fun to drive. Parked now for the winter (Manitoba, Canada) but I'm working on a few things for...

    Since my last 2 track days were hampered by brake juddering, and Sabertooth talked me off the ledge of Big Brake Kit purchase, I doubled down on EBC and got new rotors. I went with EBC GD7290 GD series Sport Rotors, as they promise significanly more venting and air flow than my current USR...

    Winter is coming! Be ready to put on a set of snow tires and prepare to brave the elements each time you leave your home or workplace. But one thing you don’t have to put up with anymore is your dim headlights equipped with factory-installed yellowish halogen bulbs. Today, you can drastically...

    So I'm a little after the fact, :eek3: but looking to find some preferences for tires. I just ordered some 235/45-18 BF GOODRICH G-FORCE SPORT COMP 2's online and was wondering if anyone has any experience with these for strictly summer driving. I bought some 235/45R18 Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2...

    It has been a fun ride, but my 4G has been declared a total loss. I parked it for the winter, and when it got nice and sunny out, I went to go for a joy ride, but instead found 4 inches of water and mold all over my interior. Under seats rusted out, all of my airbag lights on (passenger...

    Hey guys... I have a 4G eclipse and the trunk latch is not closing. I know why.. because it was sitting all winter and water got in on it and now it is rusted. Rather then spending $150 for a new one, I want to try removing mine, sand and clean it up and try to get it operational again. Is it...
