Why an Esprit: Had a Porsche 993 C4S which I sold for more than I paid for it and wanted something a little more exotic, quicker, prettier and cheaper. I got it all, now will it be as dependable?'

Updated the Alpine radio with Bluetooth and hands free phone

Problems: Does every Esprit have exhaust tips that crack?? I have one radiator hose weeping
Info: see below


bought this '99 with just over 9,000 miles on it in Las Vegas. I drove it 2,000 miles thru the Rockies, back to St. Louis where it will hibernate thru the cold weather inside. It was bullet proof but I am worried about all the hype over liner issues..
