Update - possible engine block crack?

Apparently not. All a false alarm. Mine's Nakayama-san found a turbo water line that was leaking coolant. It was underneath the rear turbocharger. He's replaced it with a new part, hopefully no further issues... and hopefully, he was right about no crack in the block!!!

Ok, so what needs replacing next? Brakes, transmission, tires/wheels, all in the foreseeable future...

There was also a minor incident while the car was parked at Mine's - a delivery van backed into the car, causing damage to the rear bumper. Luckily, his insurance company paid for a new rear bumper, and a paint job. And the paint shop went ahead and repainted the front bumper too, so the car looks pretty good... except that they forgot to repair the top of the rear wing, which is still scratched from the impact... will post pictures soon.
