Hello everyone, I have watched and read postings for sometime and have thought I'd let everyone know also what I have noticed with my 04 SSR. I purchased it in Nov.04 and currently have 2300 miles. I too have the white powder underneath the engine hood, the transmission tinging is there also. The number 2 setting on the fan has a wobbling noise. Sometimes alittle rough idling after a 20/30 miles ride when coming to a stop but then disappears. I've read from others about too much Bass in the sound ssytem, for me I just tuned down the bass and I'm ok with it. I have had an issue with returning the factory SSR cover twice. Although its advertised as an "all weather" cover mine twice has split at the front seems to the right of the SSR emblem. I also have alittle water to enter at the top of both door windows ( not enough to matter) nvertheless its there. Other than that I love it and couldn't imagine me being without it, I am 55 yrs old and it brings back so many memories.
