    Thumbs up Newbie

    Hey guys I'm a newbie . Been browsing around and seems like there's a lot of you that really know your cars. Anyways, my first question is what do i need to do to my car if I'm about to hit 50,000 miles to keep it well maintained and get the most life out of it? It's an automatic 2001 WS6 daily driver. Not many mods besides headers, borla, k&n filter and torque converter. Again, just wanna get the most out of it so any help/advice is greatly appreciate it.
