    Engine/coolant thermostat position. What a pita to try and change. Had to do it on my '95, and putting off doing it again on my newly acquired '99 model.

    Yup, would have been nice if the boxes could handle a bit more power before letting go.

    Aus-specs not having power windows annoys me at times.

    Oh man where to start...
    GTiR motor in general... Everything from the rockers/shims to the idle system. Never building one again.

    Also discontinuing important parts. Don't make engine internals but still make an ancient ABS system in its entirety.

    It's a tie between:

    The N15 air con's moaning sound at idle that everyone thinks is a failing bearing in the compressor.

    The hyper-sensitive self cancelling indicator switch that you have to fight with on roundabouts.
