      It's a little hard to read but $20,555 for a loaded 1990 g60. It was a demo model with about 895 miles selling for $17,500. Paid $895 for an extended service contract for 10 years/100K miles. As said...

      Thank you Eric for the info on nixing the system flush. Well played! The design of the condenser in the clip above is actually more expensive to make than the traditional condenser.

      If the filter was in there, it would of kept...

      The Reg Sales Mgr from Valeo called back. He verified that the g60 condenser is truly Buh Bye. He gave me the # to 1-800-RADIATOR (1-800-420-2693). Same thing, no NOS there.

      They do have a vendor...

      What'll happen if you get the car running before you buy it? Pay the man, tow it home and have some fun. Oh, and ask him if he's pulled the dizzy out to ckeck it yet. Is it 180* out?
