A Great German Sedan With All You Buy A German Luxury Car For. — Though a high performance car in 1990, it would be considered average today. Like other German cars, it really comes alive above 4,500 RPM, It is extremely well made and one of the most comfortable highway cars ever made. At 17-24 MPG, it's not bad on gas, But extremely expensive to work on. It's a car that you buy a great one because restoration is way too expensive. A sleeper, it looks like every other 90's German sedan on the road. I enjoy going everywhere without attracting official attention, but it's handsome, not beautiful. It's a hard car to update because they are so rare. I had to replace the stereo because it could not be updated. However, not much needs updated. I would not call the car fun to drive, but it is very satisfying. It goes, stops and corners extremely well and feels like a quality car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent, high performance luxury car

Cons: Extremely high maintenance/restoration costs.

Happy Memories — We had 100,000 miles of happy motoring in this old beast, but now, it's time has passed. Next stop for this 13mpg monster is the shredder. It was a great cruiser, but fun to drive fast in too. Scariest day was when I decided to see how fast it would go - I was on a deserted desert road, straight for about 5 miles, with new tires on the car. With the transmission in Sport mode it would not shift into 4th gear until about 124mph. Just as I hit 135, the belly pan/bottom engine cover came detached and was shattered to pieces, making a huge bang like a tire blowing out. It took me about a mile to slow down to a stop, and when I went back to look for the parts, there was nothing salvagable left. Haven't driven that fast in anything else since.

Pros: Miles of comfort, great sounding V8, and pretty reliable.

Cons: Too heavy, scary in the snow, fuel consumption finally got too bad to make it worth keeping.

Great To Drive But Fearful To Repair By Audiacher

I own both a 1990 and 1992 V8. Both have just over 100K. The 92 is much superior for the following reasons: the servomatic steering is easier and smoother, the 4.2 engine shows up how underpowered t... Read More
