I bought a 91 TQ 20V on 10/10/02 with 94K miles
(verified by carfax) and in very good condition. It's
bone stock with new tires, brakes, rad, BOMB, bla bla.
I paid 5K for it I had to put a MFTS and a WGFV to get
full boost. I've got a total of well under 6K
including tax and reg. I wouldn't want to have paid
any more.
