No I have not spent anything on it, except chaining the oil. I doubt I will do any of that stuff ever, as I never plan on any mileage increases beyond a thousand per year.

Default 2002 ALMS TT - 8700 miles

My ALMS has about 8700 miles. I know this is crazy. It's also garage kept and never been driven in the rain.

Wow, you need to drive your car!

I am also in Ottawa. I do all my maintenance at Advanced Autowerks if you're looking for an independent garage. Though I have never had a problem with Mark Motors, I just prefer working with a smaller shop.

I think even with low mileage, your timing belt, already brittle, can snap sooner than you think. You'll end up having to rebuild the engine at sub 20K miles.

Thanks Everyone for input.
I am changing timing belt, all fluids, and tires which are rock solid hard! Never realized it before either.

Default Tire Suggestion

My tires are in PERFECT condition - (car not driven much since new) but rock hard rubber. Any suggestions for replacement rubber??

Default Took out of storage

Want to see what 15 year old perfect tires look like? I just took it out of storage. Check out my TT profile here as I've started tracking everything I own with it including my boats and stuff.
