    Hey, does anybody know where I can find an OEM front license plate holder for a 2004 Turbo S? A part number would be great help too. PS. I just bought this car, but I am finding it next to impossible to find part numbers for the parts I need. Any ideas? Thanks, :cool:

    My trunk door doesn't want to stay open any more and I don't know if only the dealer can fix this. I've been able to replace light bulbs but this seems massive. Any suggestions?
