Thanks! I bought a '96 3.3. I really wanted a 3.5, but the color was good (deep red) and had a spoiler on the back, which was a plus. Buckets. Most everything I wanted, but not the 3.5. What cinched it was the price, plus the mileage (86,500) was better than I hoped for. I've always been partial to the first series, but they are hitting 6 years + in age now. There were some other's around with the 3.5's, but the price was almost double from what I had to pay. Spent the weekend getting the beast in shape. Tune up, upgrading the sound, etc, etc. Having condensation issues in one headlight but after reading the forums may look for some back ups before tearing into these, in case I break them. Pretty scary to mess with from what I've been reading in the forums. Noticed some surface rust on the inside bottom of the doors when I bought it that I'll have to get fixed before winter, but it wasn't that bad. Was showing off the car to my brother and opened a back door and noticed more than just surface rust in the middle bottom of that door. Can't see it from the outside, but will definately push up the date with the body shop. Any advice on anything else to look for? Common preventative/ normal repair tips?
