Best - The Style of the car

Worst - Cost to replace the clutch

Agree.

And what the style brings to the table. The exclusivity. Attention, possibly leading to "encounters".

How about putting in a bypass oil filter so you don't need to change your oil so often. If you have the CAI, then with stock air box out of the way there should be plenty of room.. Heck, you could even relocate the oil filter

Not practical for driving 750 miles roundtrip to Maine and up side of mountain in winter. These cars may be great on winter roads but not in 3-6 inches of slush and drifts! I'd love to do what you're doing though!!!

Depends on what you compare them with. Better than the odd BMW or Merc, weight distribution gives you more traction. Of course SUV or any other 4WD will be better.
