I can't think of a fault code that would be produced simply because your car sat awhile. Sounds strange to me.

How long has it been since you put down the deposit? Don't expect them to wait forever for you to make a decision - they need to sell cars.

It'll be a cold day in hell before I go through all that on my car. I love it, but not THAT much. Hell, I lease anyway :)

I hear the same thing. I believe it's some kind of emissions pump. You'll notice that it runs longer when the gas tank is near empty. My guess is it's sucking fuel vapor from the tank and into the...

Looks like 1/2 - 3/4 quart over. Probably caused no damage, but I'd drain the excess.

1. I would wait a couple months to wax (as stated).
2. Use only car wash soap and a CLEAN wash mitt.
3. Wash and dry ONLY in the shade.
4. Dry only with microfiber towels.

I was going to guess throw-out bearing, but you stated that it happens at "30-40 MPH". Can you reproduce the noise while parked? If not, I'm thinking clutch/transmission problem.

I wouldn't either. What's good for your hair is probably bad for your finish. If you won't go buy some $2.99 car wash soap, then at least use mild dishwashing liquid.

All accessories are disabled automatically when key is turned to "start" (during actual starter cranking) to ensure enough power is reaching the starter. Leave A/C on if you want.

I would think it would still result in at least one drip on the floor. However, you're right - it could be leaking only while the driveshaft is spinning. The best idea is to get under the car and...

You definitely have an electrical problem on the left side. Keep taking it back. Tell them to check the ENTIRE electrical path.

I would wait until I actually SAW fluid on my garage floor before I paid for this. If the seal is leaking, you would surely see it.

The good news:

1) Entire new front-end and hood - say, "Bye-Bye" to those paint chips!

2) From the pics, it looks like no major mechanical damage = easier to repair.

3) You lived.

1. Sway bars actually amplify forces to the suspension. A stiffer (thicker) bar "gives" less. That force has to go somewhere. Also, the addition of one of these leads to even more spirited driving,...

I doubt camber is the culprit. It's more likely that its either:
1) Your driving habits, or
2) Mis-alignment (toe-out)
