RE: '90 Coupe Q advice needed...

It's a great car! Enjoy it if you get it. Beware of it's affinity for speed,
I found myself cruising at around 110MPH ;-) shortly after I got mine.

1) After trade I paid $10K for mine with same mileage, same year, last
August, in Vermont.

2) Heated seats, heated locks, heated headlight washers (I think).

3) *Mail* problem is postage.

*Main* problem for me is lack of availability of aftermarket suspension
toys. The engine is the same as the other NA 20v, i.e.. 90Q20v.

Minor problems I've been tracking on the list include an appetite for
brakes, both pads and rotors, the usual Audi electrical gremlins, access to
stuff behind the instrument panel, and crummy stock radio.

Complaints include less than turbo performance (mostly acceleration,
handling is beyond superb), lack of headroom (Audi apparently sells a
replacement thinner seat cushion that gives an additional 10mm headroom),
teeny trunk (barely can get my golf clubs in).
