Well, I have to confess I was referring to the blades on my 1st gen Trep--haven't had the 2nd gen long enough to know if it's a problem on it. Soft arm rest: I had an '86 LeBaron GTS, and the console lid armrest had a little padding under the vinyl, as did the door armrest, and it was MUCH more comfortable. I'll disagree with you about tires. On my '96 a change from Goodyear to Goodrich made a tremendous difference in road noise. Take a look at the buyer surveys on TireRack.com and you'll see that buyers rate some brands much better than others for noise.
My resonator went early, I'm sure, because I bought the car used from a person who did a lot of short trip driving. That aside, I'm sure you must agree this is a way of cutting costs, and sooner or later the customer will have to pay for a new exhaust system they wouldn't have had to on the 1st gen cars.
P.S. I've heard the term "He's a gay blade", but you put a new meaning to that!! Guess I'm showing my age. Nice lookin' car ya got there, sonny.
