breaking in my 88 90
It is with great pride and excitement that I share this news with the
I've officially finished the recommended break-in period on my 88 90
as I've crossed the 200,000 mile mark. It's nice to feel the engine
start to loosen up and really feel comfortable. If I get another
200-300 thousand miles out of this german beauty, I'll feel that I've
gotten my money's worth. :)
Joking aside, I can't believe the pleasure I get every day out of
driving this car. It still looks modern, has all the creature comforts
I could ask for and, above all, it's just plain fun to drive.
Four years ago, I paid 7k for a young, silver 90 with 75k on the clock.
At the time, other options would have been your typical
accord-camry-626. You make the call. Since then, I've endured the
"costs a lot to fix, don't it?" jeers of my peers, but all told, with
what I've spent on this car, I could have bought a four year old accura
legend back then. I can tell you which I would prefer to DRIVE.
Here's to a well developed 5 cylinder engine!
