dec 2016 bought my 2005 touring coupe with around 101,000 or 110,000 miles
(yeah-i am bad with numbers)

actual repairs needed-
radiator cap
radiator fans
A/C compressor
drivers side door handle (the dreaded won't open from outside thing)

stuff i upgraded from due to needing to replace anyway-
engine under tray from plastic to the aluminum one.
brakes from standard to Willwoods (calipers, rotors, brake lines)
wheels from the 7 spoke standard - to the Rays 5 spokes ones
tires from worn out to... hmm..something i think that MicVelo recommended.
nose piece -due to serious pitting and stuff.
floor mats- i am 2nd owner- and i am pretty damn sure previous owner was a red headed professional woman who loved her high heels.
(the wear on the mats- plus finding long red hairs under the seats every time i vacuumed the car out)

upgraded just for fun-
kept factory stereo/tape deck- added a MTX Thunder Amp that i took out of my 95 grand am sometime back in 2005.... added a sub box w/2 10 inch speakers and a capacitor... and tossed in the cassette adapter that i also took from the 95 grand am so i could play my music via cell phone via the cassette player

now up to 130,000+ miles.

on the list to be taken care of-
that damned differential bushing that gives such grief.
the damned front lower ball joint that requires you to either buy everything attached to it or take your chances with what you can find as a replacement.

and then since i rather do things in one fell swoop rather than repeat the same actions over and over- i am reading up on what other things i could just go ahead and take care of when i have the differential dropped and the front end tore up to replace the ball joints.

Owned my 2006 MT Roadster Touring since April 2017 when it had 19k miles. Now has just under 23k miles. No repairs needed.

I'm at 185,000 on my '05 Touring coupe.
Excluding tires and fluids I've done the following.

Lower control arm bushings and balljoints (what a b*#^!)
Trunk struts
Drivers side window motor.
Lower center console
Used stock muffler
Crankshaft position sensor

What it needs:
New midpipe and muffler due to rotting at the collar
New differential bushings
New cam chain tensioner
New upstream o2 sensor

All oem components that failed...SMH...
was your door stripping on the outside or was it the upper weather seals in the inside?
