    Prime looking interior! Post some pics of the exterior if you can.
    I like the back and hood fiber optics too,on my '78 Deville.You`re right,the '94 concours did`nt have the fiber optics on the hood----they`re not on my '95 Deville either-----seems the hoods on those models were not long enough and too sloped down for them.The '93-'96 Fleetwoods had the hood fiber optics though.

    Nice looking Brougham! Enjoy it.

    I have the same color interior in my 90 & 85!

    In my 90 I average about 14mpg, w/ about 90% city driving. Mine has the 5.7 liter.

    Get some exterior pics up soon.

    17, must be nice. On a good day I will see 16. I usually see around 13-15 mpg. I have 177,000 miles on the clock and I drive in the city 90%of the time.

    Re: Buying 1990 Brougham tomorrow

    Took it on a drive to Burlington VT got pretty bad gas mileage but ah well it was a real nice ride. I noticed a shimmy around 65-80MPH. Also lots of smoke upon startup, how much do these valve seals cost to fix anyway? Also does this climate control supports diagnostic mode ? I can get it to show numbers 0-26 or something but cant figure out how to select anything such as the coolant temp or RPMS.

    Re: Buying 1990 Brougham tomorrow

    diagnostic is pulled through the ALDL connector under the dash. on my '86 it is to the right of the ash tray.
    although on some other cars I've had it is on the left of the ash tray. its a smallish 12 pin connector.
    heres a linkthat should be of use to you:
