Welcome to 2GStratus! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wavey.gif)
Curious, how much did you pay for your new car?
Clear coat is unfortunately something that can't be fixed and must be repainted.

i pay $2000, i got it in december and that same day change the belts, whater pump, seals, valve cover gaskets, sparks plugs, wires, brakes, oil and flush the radiator coolant. i spend like another $300 extra in parts, so lets say that i pay $2300.

i prefer to tune up the car, that way i know how is going to perform, and at the begining o this month i did the 2nd oil change. i only took the car to the mechanic to change the time belt, seals and water pump, but everithyng else i didit in my home the next day.

and until now no problems

I have an eclipse spoiler for sale, since your repainting some of your car, might as well get a good spoiler to add on to it! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) Let me know if you interested.
