It has several minor nicks and scratches from rocks, etc. as well as evidence that she wasn't too careful in those mall parking lots. Anyway, they wanted 27.9K and I got it for 22.5 plus my 88 Civic LX in trade... I figure I paid $25.5-26K.

It would seem you did well, especially in getting an extended
warrantee.  You need to have your dealer deal with the sluggishness
problem while you're getting that clear coat patched.  My '92 100CSQW is
approaching 150K and is not and never has been sluggish.  The 2.8V6
remains the 100/A6's only shortcoming.  It does not have a whole lot of
honk.  But it does respond briskly if that's the way you drive, and
while it lacks neck-snapping turbo-like response, it is in no way
sluggish when it and the tranny are performing up to spec.
