While I'm looking for an R wagon for me, I came across a '97 in Richmond, VA. Black with 51k miles.<P>Are there any know problems with these cars? What kind of bolt-on performance can be had with the Rs.<P>Thanks,<BR>Chris<BR>

Chris, I just got that that car. Same mileage too. I love the car and have had no problems yet, and I'm running it hard too. The only thing that has gone wrong is my oil dipstick broke off behind the rubber O-ring. It's a cheap fix though, $15 for a new one. As far as performance that is something I going to be looking into alot, to say the least. I'm shooting for 14sec flat quarter mile times and one way or another I'm gonna get there. I just don't know how yet. I post my progress as it happens.<BR>MIKE

You may want to keep an eye on motor mounts. I had one that was replaced under warranty at sub 30K miles. I believe IPD makes a heavy duty equivalent, but mine was replaced under warranty.
