I agree with Peter.  Try to fix it.  Just depends how smitten you most likely are by these damn things!  There are still replacements out there.  Just today saw a possible "parts car" (Silver) parked near Santa Monica Blvd today.  I also consider my Avant irrreplaceable, and two bros that have had same and moved-up " " to Allroads miss the performance of the '91 (Colorado, Minnesota).  Insurance companies work on "comps" and this one is very difficult  - especially the Avant.  I had to fight tooth-and-nail three years ago to get justice from a frontal accident.  OK, now that we have consoled you, have encouraged you to continue your "curator"  tendencies, how much for the chip?  Keith.  San Diego
