I really loved my 91 20V TC 200. Bought in 5-01, it was the nicest one I could find at the time, with 59,000 miles. I drove it to 130,000, when the turbo disintegrated, and somehow it ingested some of the pieces & the engine is toast. Car to be sold without engine (which is going in a project car), but I spent so much $ on mods and maintenance that I will now proceed to offer to give away many thousands of $ by offering the car as is.
First of all, understand this is a nice car, both body & interior. Pics attached, taken yesterday, as well as a few taken in happier times.
MODS: ASA 17 wheels with Pilot Sport A/S 245x17. These have about 6,000 miles on them. The last set of PS A/S lasted me 30,0000 mi & were still drivable. The set was over $1,200 at the Tire Rack & will price out at that today. Porsche Monobloc front calipers & A8 rotors. The conversion kit was from http://www.karquattro.com/ . I believe there are only a handful of 200s that have had this conversion (Kar or Bira) given the cost (about $2,200 incl labor). Koni shocks & H&R springs. Euro Headlights. Real HID (Sylvania Xenarc) driving lights (I do have to verify they are intact); New CD/tuner in-dash. Bose rear speakers replaced under that recent recall (!);
Pillar-mounted boost gauge; coco mats, Personal knob. There are a bunch of other maintenance items, which I would have to dig to enumerate. Take this Dear Cup from my Lips: $2,800.
