      If the car is at stock height and not sagging or low in one corner or something, the stock springs are fine. Usually if a spring "wears out" it cracks and breaks.

      I think there should be a retaining clip, a little wire ring. You can see it in his video. If the ring is there, you have to either push really hard to snap it in, or release the ring a little to...

      Be sure the reservoir is 100% full because there's a little wall in there that isolates the clutch port. Basically if your clutch dumps the fluid your reservoir doesn't go empty. But if you don't...

      There's an updated reservoir cap that is used on newer models, I think from 2013 and up. I recommend that. It's backward compatible. Instead of a hole on the bottom it has a little spoked design. ...

      It's one of the reasons the belt change interval went from 70k to 110k in 1999. It's a good thing.

      p80 is plug and play. P2 is also, but there are codes for audio module missing if you go aftermarket. P1 and others are much harder to upgrade.
