Your prices sound like the 'exchange' cost to the warranty company after discount rather than the list prices of the engine/gearbox.

If I knew what ‘drops the mic’ meant Question

56 year old struggles with young persons language Floor

Mic Drop = "Used to emphasize that a discussion is at an end after a definitive or particularly impressive point has been made."
GTS model has most of the bells you'd want and the Targa is stunning.

Teaching the codgers a thing or two....yeah boy

There was no warranty company. I paid the OPC myself. As it happens, I paid less than this as I negotiated goodwill.

Ive seen a few gen 1 with high lift solinoid failure .. i saw many at the beginning with vacum failure on the electric valves that control a lot of things on the engine ( one fails and the whole system fails ) also there was a few campaigns on that fault .. you get a coolant waring message for that if it does happen .

Overall ive not seen many problems at all .

Cant say about the gen 2 .. not had any in for faults so far .. but most would delt with by OPC .. can say my old buddys havent informed me of problems with then so far .
