    The first one went a month after I bought it, and the second one went after a ton of cooling problems. I definitely know way more now than I did then so I definitely won't be making the same mistakes.

    Blown head gasket on the second? <-- usually that's caused by use of DexCool

    Yes, blown radiator led to a headgasket failure, which in turn led to a spun rod bearing. I never used dexcool so idk about that.

    The bronze wheels are awesome. I love how they look nearly black from far away but still look really good up close.

    I like it. It isn't too loud and gives it a more aggressive sound.
