Advice on 91 90Q purchase
I am interested in buying a 91 90Q sedan. The car is in great shape,
but has high miles, 127K. I commute through two lane hwys to work. I
have put 30k in a year on my 874kcsq and now the suspension bushings
are in a need to be replaced. Obviously, 90q is a superior car in
looks and performance, but I have a few questions that the Audi sage
might be able to answer.
1) My 874kq has 137k, and I am buying a 90q with 127k for a lot more
money. It seems to be in great shape, but the suspension components,
(especially bushings and CV joints) must be approaching a critical
state. I heard some someone that suspension bushings and tranny mounts
go out around 135k, which is true for my 874kq, is that true for all
90q's? In addition, I noticed a slight shudder (tremble) when I
pressed the brake pedal at around 60 mph, with the foot off the pedal
and the transmission in neutral. Just a warped rotor or suspension
bushings aging up?
2) My 874kq drives like a smaller car and seems (?) to sit lower. When
I drove the 90q, it rode like a bigger car. Am I hallucinating, any
comparisons of the two would be helpful. I may be bordering on heresy,
but the driving position of the 90q reminded me a little of the Saab
3) I was noting that the 90q 20valve has more hp then a BMW 325 flat
six and weighs less, but still has a slower 0-60. Is that due to gear
4) Lastly, any advice, experiences, maintenance especially on a 90q
would be much appreciated.
Thanks a bunch
