    so sorry, Bro. For those of us still uncracked... is there a good trick to keep dash uncracked? Any ArmorAll or other stuff better than others... is this from lots of flexing with no subframe connector, or bushings drying out and hardening where dash connects (guessing?), etc.?

    It royally pisses me off because I just got the interior looking the way I wanted and that happens.

    I would say it's just that my car is 19 yrs old. Plastic is not forever as the Greenies would make you believe. Hell even Ferrari's and Lambo's suffer from plastic aging as well. You look at any 80's to 90's car and you see they have issues with dash, etc.

    I have the top-dash with a crack, small cracks on the doors (caught, and fixed them in time before they went nuts), one of the vent vanes (replaced with a used on, and fixed the broken one for use later). I do have to reconnect the center console just below the cup holder (barely would notice). I think that's about it, unless the letters on the cruise control being smudges and partially missing counts.

    Pretty sure when I get back to the states I am going to put Coil overs on my car and give that a shot, I have a whole laundry list of parts I want to get over the next year or so but I figure I will start with suspension.
