94 CE on eBay

Looks to be in nice shape, low miles and good price.

I would buy this if I wanted a Spider.

Always felt the wood in the CE was extremely classy.

Thanks

Doesn't appear that interiors have changed much between the S3 and the S4, except for that god awful airbag steering wheel. But 22K? Really?

Yes, that's big money but look at the mileage (if the %#@*& speedo/odo still works)

How much do you think it is worth?

nla.

judging by the condition of original seats (the alcantara is still very good, not replaced either because of visible age cracks in the leather) and the clean engine bay, I'd hazard a guess the mileage is genuine.

For a CE, price is OK-ish if really tippy toppy, imo.
People pay premiums for this last series limited ed., and it has all the correct badges etc, in place, including good wheel emblems which are nearly always in poor order (the cloisonée enamel cracks off, leaving just gold coloured centres)

this is one odd thing I noticed....anyone else got this large inspection hole on their VVT, as opposed to the normal little round inspection hole?

I agree. For the asking price, it has to be in top shape. I don't think its too far off.

As for the VVT, I have the small round inspection hole, but that modification, doesn't look to be a bad idea. Makes seeing and adjusting the pin easy.

Think I will leave mine as is for now.

Don't overlook those super-size knee bolsters, either. That's a BIG difference when you sit in an S4.

Just one reason I love my '84 . . . . .

Aha!
I found out why the VVT housing is different....

It's the modified housing from centerline, that does away with the rubber bushing:

Now, this makes me think. why would that rubber bushing have deteriorated, to warrant replacement, on a low 34k mile car?
Mine is still original and good on a 100k mile car.....
