Like you, I'm glad I found this forum...Even more glad that by pure serendipity, I found a pre-owned Diamond White 98 Concours (purchased new w/ 1 owner on 12/22/97-making it 6 yrs old yesterday) with ONLY 48K miles. Exceptionally clean in/out and smooth as silk. Found a GMPP Major Guard plan for up to 45K miles at a decent price. Gave up a 99 silver loaded Passat for something more suitable for me (6'5" 225lbs) and my brood. I thought my 91 Park Ave was nice...but there is absolutely nothing like this Pearl Hog!!! Good luck to you Lake Dweller, enjoy it...and like you, I will stay tuned to this group's helpful insight on maintaining my Concours for the time I plan to keep it...forever!!!--It will be a classic like the 62 Eldo convertible I'm looking for, for my weekend crusin'
