^Foreshadowing. "So My Car Needed New Tires, Part II"...

Still, sucks to have to store your car for half a year.

That's not too bad...I may have to do research before I decide on a car... b/c I'd only do the front end anyway.

I believe you have to do the sides as well, since the '02+ have lower side skirts.. The rear is recommended, but I suppose you can just do side spats to match the height of the front and sides.

^ Thanks for the replies guys! I change my mind on cars like I change underwear. Plus, winter is our very slow period, so not much spending happening between Thanksgiving and President's Day for me .

Bad thing is it just gives me time to do more research and change my mind 5 more times

Parking on plywood helps, supporting it on jackstands makes it harder for mice as well.

(if you want to get real anal about it) you should get a fan to move air under the car to keep moisture from building up

Wheels will be getting either refinished or replaced during winter. So im sure the car will end up on jack stands soon.

F1 champ Button's old Honda NSX has racked up crazy mileage

https://news.yahoo.com/f1-champ-butt...192147772.html

This probably isn't the highest mileage Honda NSX around, as the host of the video below suggests ó it is, however, impressive that this NSX has its original clutch, flywheel, suspension, and even bushings, with 170,000 miles already on the clock.
This particular example is an exceptionally well-taken care of budget exotic, which might be due to the fact that the owner runs a detailing shop, but itís also never needed major mechanical work.

The 2002 year model NSX where the owner of both shop and car explains how he got his hands on the NSX.
Current owner Mike bought the car from the second owner, and the first owner was world-famous racing driver Jenson Button, winner of the 2009 Formula 1 world title. Button drove the NSX as a company car when he raced for Honda.

When Mike found the car for sale and clocked who its famous original owner was, he jumped on the deal. Since buying it, heís put it to good use as a daily driver, and states that heís never had any issues out of the car. This Honda NSX is not only a daily driven car, Mike also takes it out to the track for events on a regular basis.While there are certainly some more popular heavy-hitters in the supercar niche, Mike unsurprisingly admires the NSX's engineering that was far beyond its time, and most NSX enthusiasts would tend to agree with him.
The perception by some was that Honda was trying to put up a fight against the aforementioned supercar makers, but in reality, the NSX has the bragging rights as the first production car with an all-aluminum semi-monocoque, with extruded aluminum alloy, frame and suspension components.Along the ride, the pair talks about other cool features, like how Honda based the cockpit design around a fighter jet so the driver could have a 360-degree view. The clutch and shifter are also made to be extremely driver friendly, and the lightweight frame make very good use out of the (lower) horsepower output for a lot of responsive power.Even the noise inside the cockpit is very pleasing for the driver. The mid-engine car does put off quite the growl, but itís not just assaulting exhaust noise thumping into the cabin, but more of a high-end induction growl.
