For Sale: Pearl White ’90 CQ.  For all intents and purposes, I am the only owner the car has ever known.  I bought it in Nov. ’90 with only 8K miles on it.  It now has 211K miles but runs like the day it was new. It burns the exact same amount of oil since new.  I have religiously changed the oil with Castrol Syntec every 3-7K miles.  I have 90% of the service receipts.  Just last year I did some major work with all new suspension bushings all around, H&R springs and Koni adjustables (less than a year old) along with O2 sensor and some other items.  The car has 17” OZ Superleggeras (the price also includes the original Speedlines, too – in really good shape).  The car has stainless steel brake lines, PIAA fog/driving lights in the place of the factory fogs (flip the switch one way and you get fogs, flip the switch the other way and you get driving lights.)  The car is very solid, nothing rattling or falling off.  It has a Magnaflow muffler that was installed just about 7 months ago
and gives it a nice raspy sound that is not obnoxious on the freeway.  It has K&N replacement filter (not the cone style).  I also have a car cover for it (has some rips in it, along with a bra.  The car is located in San Jose, CA and has been a CA car its entire life – no rust anywhere.  I also have two catalytic converts – one hollowed out, one with the guts.

Some known issues that need to be looked at some day – but not necessarily in a hurry:
•	The AC Freon has leaked out.  The source of the leak has never been fixed, but the AC pump works fine. 
•	There is a crack in the wind shield.  It goes across the top corner on the passenger side – and is about 6” – 8” long.  Since it goes from one side to the top, it has never spread.  It’s been there about three years and has never changed, so I suspect it never will. 
•	The clear coat on the hood is starting to show some minor wear.  The paint on the rest of the car is in really good shape.  It is all the original paint except that the right rear quarter panel was re-painted after a parking lot incident in ’94.  
•	The passenger side window makes a yucky creaking/crackling noise when the window is going up and down.  I think the cable is messed up. 
•	There is a worn spot in the leather on the driver side bolster – just from wear, not a cut.  
•	The “antilock” brake light comes on very infrequently – ever since doing the suspension upgrade last year.  I suspect that one of the sensors is either out of adjustment but it happens so infrequently that I have never fixed it.
