Welcome! I lived over there for 6 years, never that far north though, always in Bavaria. How does she handle on the Autobahn?

Thank y'all for the welcomes

She handles quite well. I actually bought her in Bavaria and drove 700km home without a single problem. But until now I went easy on her b/c she need a new t-stat and front wheel bearings (those are expensive!).

When all that is fixed I will try out just how fast she can go

Yeah, those bearings are a bit stiff on the wallet. Make sure you do both at the same time.
I had troubles with my right front bearings(and on the '95 the hub/bearing/speed sensor are one assembly, $$$), and replaced hub without doing the left side. In sptie of several alignments, the car pulled to the left under acceleration. Finally gave up, replaced left hub, problem solved.
Let us know how she rolls when you get her out on the 'bahn, and
WELCOME

Yeah, it has a nice touch to it, doesn't it?

Actually, those were only the temporary plates for tranferring her. But soon I'll post a few pics with the new plates. They even gave me a rear plate that is smaller than US-plates

Thanks again to y'all for the welcome. I think finding parts will be no problem with such a nice community!
