Just after I bought my 2002 Coupe I was driving on a country road and though I would play around a bit. Turned off traction & stability hit the throttle and had the car drifting on a corner and then I lost it and it spun around. Did not hit anything but the next day when I was washing it I found both rear rims had cracks in them that where not there before.
So I learned two things ............... do not turn off the stability control (put in race mode) and I am not the ace driver I thought I was and it only cost me just over $1000.00 for that little lesson.

Could of just replaced the rear two but read there was a issue with cracked rims on the late 2001 and early 2002.
Went with after market rims too that are close to orginal and have a lifetime warranty as long as they are not beat-up.
