Hi guys,
Just entered the world of gt ownership. Its a 08 4.2. This is my first Italian sports car, so far its been a real head Turner. Few small issues I'll need to work through over the winter. I think the suspension bushes are worn as the steering is a bit wayward plus slight vibration at 1500-2000 rpm and a very slight chase at idle. All of which from what I have read are standard issues.

Congratulations and welcome to the forum. I just bought my 08 GT in October so this is my first Italian as well.
Unfortunately, it has been a little too cold to drive on the summer tires, so it is in my garage and probably won't get much use for the next 3 months. During that time, I am doing small projects on the interior and some maintenance such as the first oil change.

Thanks.
What are you going to be doing inside? I noticed a couple with upgraded head units when I was looking, is that your plan?

I'm not looking to do any upgrades in the interior, but I have fixed I few issues with leather on the center console (in another discussion thread). I have worked on some of the "sticky button" issues.
This was mostly on the radio as other buttons look good. I also have the Drive-by-Wire (DBW) enhancement installed but I don't like the way the original owner left the buttons and wires hanging beside the glovebox. I am going to attach them to a better location.
