We call her "Pearl" for obvious reasons. She has 194k miles.

I'll tell you what I know. I'm the second owner, bought it from the first at 124,000 miles. Since than I've done, or had done: The front brakes (pads and rotors at 190k) and rear brakes (pads, rotors, and calipers at 170k); clutch (130k); timing belt (seals, idler, etc.); front struts (Boge TurboGas at 180k); turbo to intercooler hose; engine temp sensors;  alternator brushes; hydraulic hoses from pump to rack and pump to accumulator (bomb); coolant hoses; radiator. More information available on request (I can dig up the slips).

Know issues: AC compressor shot but system still pressurized, steering rack has slow leak, climate control blower squeaks, clutch has always been stiff.

The cars runs well, starts a bit slow (but always starts, even at -20 last winter). Boost is to spec (1.4 bar), burns normal amount of oil for a turbo. Doesn't smoke.

The interior is grey and in average condition for 194k miles. The leather is worn smooth on edge of driver's seat. Some marks, but no holes or tears. Electric seats both work. Passenger and rear seat heaters work. Wood trim has 2 cracks as is often seen in these. Dash instruments and lights all work.

The body is in average condition. There is surface rust at the usual places for a car this age. Lower rocker panels have some rust. There are several rust patches on the paint of the hatch and the rear fenders. These haven't yet perforated the metal though. In blue book terms I would call the body "fair."

I'm going to be buying a newer car and thought I'd let the list know about this. Dealer trade-in will be about $1000 so it's not worth my while to sell for too close to that price.

Thanks for looking, feel free to contact me with questions or to see the car
