Can't tell you how relieved I am to know that there are a couple of 90 V8's in B'more and that there are honest mechanics/folks around here. Did you get a chance to check out the photographs I posted? I think I got a great deal but you know if it's too good to be true...... Just waiting for the guy to pull it out from under the snow in Portland ME and then I plan on flying up there and driving it down. Thanks for the pointers

Welcome to the fold... there are already at least 5 90V8 cars in Baltimore (including mine in NW Baltimore). I can point you to a general mechanic, and also to a guy in Ellicott City who has the ultimate Audi garage... at his house.
Mine came from a Providence, RI wholesaler(originally from Boston area) and the drive down was wonderful... put the car in "S" Sport mode and it flys!
PS - you're also lucky because Impex is located in Cockeysville and has good prices and quick turnaround time for parts - avoid the dealer!!!!!!!!!

>I just bought a 1990V8 on eBay. I am a little nervous about maintenence after going through all the threads in the group. The listing says that there is a slight leak in the power steering system - could that be a sign of a much bigger problem? how expensive would it be to fix it? I hope it's just a hose that needs to be changed. I am planning on driving the car from Boston to Baltimore in a couple of weeks. The car seems to be in fantastic shape (in pictures) and I have attached a few for you guys. Any ideas suggestions good mechanics in the Baltimore/DC area? Any information would be helpful. I was told that the car runs fine and it only has 87528 miles on it although the true mileage may be 90,000 but no more than that. Is this too good to be true? I am excited to get it but a tad intimidated also. Looking forward to hearing from you folks. Thanks.
