I bought my 1990 90Q20V (Pearl) last December for $15K with 44k miles.
The previous owner started at about $18k and finally sold it to me 2 months

Haven't had any problems with the car and we've put on 16k miles
since we aquired it.  It does burn oil at about 1 quart per 5k miles
when run hard.

Overall it's been a very good and fun car.

Does anyone know if there's a performance chip available for the
90 Q 20V ?  Larger front/rear sway bars?
