My 1988 90Q (I know it is different than yours) has 140K in 7 years.  The
following items have been replaced:

--  Computers (Both FI and Ignition) (30K)
--  Idle Stabilizer (Chasing running problems 30K)
--  O2 Sensor (50K)
-- Catalytic Converter (40K) (Hard running tends to melt them down)
--  Radiatior (135K)
--  Coil (50K)
-- Brakes (105K)
-- Clutch (new) and tranny rebuilt (135K)
-- Door lock lever (125K)
-- AC pieces and parts (110K)
--  Hoses and belts (twice I think)
--  Hydraulic tappets-2 of them - they still rattle when cold (130K)

Actually not to bad considering the exercise the car has gotten.
