Interesting note by Lee on 850 wagon.
>>>HP of Wags<<< Lee, you are right, 240 stock is a good
number. However, for the other side of $35k, I [maybe just me] will take
my '89 200tqw for >$6k, with Eric's suspension upgrade and some turbo
mods, have 275+hp, AWD, and what? $25k in the bank. Personal
preference, that's all.
>>>Torque steer<<< I felt it. Then again, I feel it in any FWD
car w/ decent hp. Saab 900 Turbo: [new ones] same story at about
185hp. Nice car though, if you like Saab's.
>>>Jittery ride<<< On the R drop from 17" to 15"? Maybe that
would work. Dunno, car had 17's.
>>>maint. work<<< I can't [and didn't] argue with the
reliability [and especially crashworthiness] of the Volvo. However, I
consider the gremlins of the Audi w/ the price I paid for the car. For
me, I will heat up the soldering tool ever once and again, ain't that
bigga deal---unless you paid 35k for the car.
>>>Attributes of 850<<< REMEMBER, I said the 850 was a nice
car--if you like Volvo's. Yeah, they are big inside, and quite safe. So
is the Saab 9000, the LandCruiser, etc. It just depends what you like to
drive. I've never felt cramped in the 200tqw. If however, I need to
haul plywood, I'll start up the truck.
>>>Dorkness<<< Easy Lee. Said it with a smile on my face!!!
Didn't mean to send the ole bloodpressure up. Maybe I should have
inserted "over-sensitive" where I used the word "dork".
HEY, kids, if you like a ybbehc, buy a ybbehc! I ain't the taste
police here. Life is too short. Drive whatever the hell makes you feel
good. I'll take mine in Audi turbo AWD, thank you. Oh, just throw that
bag full of money in the back, o.k.? Thanks.
