May I first apologize to those who responded to my last post. I had to change 
my e-mail account.

Well, I've about a week now to get to know my new toy, and, as can be 
expected, there are a couple gremlins.

Most of you know by now about the turbo not hitting full boost, and the 
intermittent stalling for no apparent reason. I discovered my car did not 
receive the airbag sensor recall, and I am taking to the local dealer, and I 
will have him address the problem.

Last weekend I rid the car of the awdul snow tires, went to Sears, where they 
put on Pirelli P8000's. I am absolutely amazed at how much noise they 
generate. Is this because they are new tires? Will it go away? I called Sears 
back and complained, and they told me to give it a couple of weeks. They said 
if I was still not satisfied, I could exchange them for a set of Michelin's 
(albeit more expensive than the Pirelli's). I checked to make sure the tires, 
which are uni-directional, were put on right, and they were. But the road 
noise is really getting to me.

Next, a member asked me of this before, and it wasn't happening at the time, 
but now my speakers "pop" intermittently. I plan on telling my dealer about 
this, is there a TSB about this problem?
