Look at truecar.com.

I'm fairly young and don't dress fancy so dealerships weren't taking me seriously. I'd print a quote out on there then wait for a discount from GM. Try taking them down to...

I'd take $45k for my '13 and use it to buy a house lol. The house is a wise financial decision, unfortunately it isn't very fun or fast.

I change mine before I put it away. Then I run it for a little while in the spring before changing it. Might not be necessary, but it's good piece of mind and not too expensive if you do it yourself.

DOT 3 or 4 is fine, but I would recommend high temperature DOT 4 if you drive it hard. It seems to get hot. Even with the separate reservoir that isn't a lot of fluid and it doesn't circulate really...

Did you put it away with dirty oil? You should change it before putting it away because used oil can be acidic which isn't good for the metal. My opinion would be to change it without starting, but...

ATE Type 200 is the yellow version and you can still get it. The blue is outlawed because it isn't yellow/clear. You can get a liter for $20. I think the Motul has a higher boiling point by about 60...

No iOS because I'm not paying $100 per year to be a developer. Plus I don't have a real device to test iOS apps on. I just do apps as a hobby.

I just took an 8 or 9 year old walmart battery out of my caprice this winter. Only problem is that it isn't a sealed battery, so spillage could be possible.

The gears in the trans are different to compensate. 6th is .50 I believe. I will get 24-25 depending on speed. I think 68mph gets me 25.
