It is a pretty great DD though, fwiw. Never thought I'd have a car more than 3-4 years but here I am

[Edited on April 5, 2017 at 8:28 PM. Reason : I'd probably try something else if buying now tho...The fuel delivery system on these things sucks.]

Is HPFP still a thing, or have all the bad ones failed by now (and been replaced by an eleventeenth redesign that works?)

I had to replace a LPFP years back, but the HPFP in mine was replaced via recall before I got it and has been fine since so from my vantage point it's no longer a thing
