Nice soft top 4C!

I love the 4C as well but it's quirky even for me. Front compartment that doesn't open. Tricky soft folding top. A special windshield washer fluid fill cover.

The front hood caught me. I didn't even know it wasn't a trunk until like 2 weeks after I bought the car, lol.

AWESOME!!! Welcome to the club!!
Now ditch those eco tires, put some proper tires on it and enjoy that chassis as it was meant to be driven. I recommend Pilot Super Sports!!

It's a mostly year round car so the SS's don't do well here in the mountains. Probably gonna see if the pilot a/s tire has that size. She doesn't drive very hard so really though, the OEM tires are probably fine for a while.

The A/S will increase the performance quite a bit. The OEM eco tires are so easily overwhelmed by the stiffness of the body and the ///M suspension. Yes...it has ///M suspension. The arms are beautiful...take a look when you are under the car.

Glad you and the wife are enjoying it, thus far.

Cheers-Milton

Subtle it is not! Very eye catching, can we get some interior photos?

Nice looking car.... wasn't aware they were down in the 30K range.


I considered one a while back but ultimately decided it was too much getting in and out of for a daily driver.
