Don Lorenzo, if I'm right, you could at least use some Grigio Touring nail polish.
Yea when i take these pictures and put the toe and flip flops out I laugh because of Vincenzo,s comment. To refresh everyones memory he made the comment that i was wearing flip flops, rubbing it in cause im in florida in january. Next January ill take the pics by the pool> Don Lorenzo

Don Lorenzo.....as Crocodile Dundee says....THIS is a flip-flop! (well almost...it's the flip without the flop).

Diy

Grazie Vincenzo. I spent about an hour downloading all these on to my computer for future reference.

Any idea where I might find a DIY for the replacement of the thermostat??

Torque Specifications

Does anyone have a list of fastener torque specifications for 2006 GranSport Spyder (I assume 4200's may be same) for various fluid change drain and filler plugs and other relevant fasteners that may need to be removed. - thanks

Could someone kindly re-post the engine intake air filter change DIY guide for the 4200 Coupe/Spyder?

It looks like the link to the Adobe website died. I'll be happy to host the document on my dropbox or something for all to enjoy.

-The engine on my 2004 Coupe spit up some excess oil (probably my fault for slightly overfilling it) and I cleaned out the MAF and throttle body. The check light is off now, but I think it might be worth replacing the air filter just for good measure.

Gran Sport air filter change - repost

The link for the 4200 air filter change is a nightmare - I spent over two hours joining adobe, downloading, creating passwords, reformatting, converting --- all for nothing.

This is my first post to the forum - looking forward to a better introduction in my next couple of posts. Currently frustrated

Thanks in advance to whomever reposts the air filter change process for this newbie
