go on a lotus forum or soemthing, and the atmosphere and attitude of everyone is completely diff.
yup, they all talk about how their new shift ****, boot and handbrake handle was about $1000 and that they think they own the fastest thing in their state.

it burns when i run the car in high RPM ranges frequently, which happens everytime i drive it since i only get a chance to take it out once or twice a week. there's been a lot of discussion on burning mobil 1 on k20a.org. just hit 3k miles on the amsoil change and still full and clean, if it would have been mobil 1 i'd be adding oil.

Which one would you choose with my current setup?

thanks
