Hi all, I'm new here and I'm soon to be the owner of a mint condition 1996 Eagle Vision TSi with under 40k miles here within a few months and I just have a few questions here. It states in the manual that the 3.5L is recommended a minimum of 89 octane, but runs 87 octane "satisfactorily", and gets a boost from 91 octane. I live in Alaska and the mid grade up here is 88. Will the engine run ok on 88 if for whatever reason I have to cheap out and can't use 90(our premium)? Also, while the passenger airbag cover hasn't really begun to peel yet, is there any preventative measures I can take against it peeling any further? And finally, what's up with the multifunction stalks and why do they all look so white and crusty? All information is much appreciated, and I can't wait to own this beauty and get to enjoy autostick.
