    thanks for the compliments.

    all the previous owner had to do was throw a cover on the car and so much could have been prevented. i bought the car, got it running, amoung a few other things. its not show quality, but its in good enough condition for myself and who ever might buy the car from me to enjoy the car. that's what matters most to me.

    on a sidenote, headlight motor is fixed, on to the window motor...

    1998 Black TA WS6

    Not much different than other 4th gen ws6

    I have a mint 98 TA WS6, all stock 30K miles.

    It is really hard to say if these cars are going to go up in value or not. I own one, it would be great. You need to decide if you are going to keep it forever or may want to turn a profit in the future. The bone stock ones with lowest mileage will be worth most every time. If you want to keep it and mod it cool, you just wont get your money back. A weak link in the 4th gen TA's is the 10 bolt rear. If you want to add more power you need to beef up the drive train first.

    The cheap plastic stuff always breaks like the ashtray lid and the traction control plate. Sometimes the tape on the WS6 badge on the back can fall off, if yours gets loose get it adhered well before it flies off and you have to get a replacement. Window motors commonly wear out. Nothing hugely different about the 98.

    Good luck with it.

    since i got laid off, i have no choice but to sell. im compiling everything i have done to the car since i got it. i might throw in some extra stuff if my asking price is met. plan to push this on Craigslist versus posting over the car forums to start. looking over the car once i get a few more things done, i'll post the car at a price that will reflect what i feel the car is worth.

    plan was to keep the car, but with no funds coming in, and bills that need to be paid, it's easier to part ways with it. there will always be something better down the road, both job wise and car wise.

    I bought a T/A that sat outside for about 3 months and it accumulated a lot of dirt and grime in the rear hatch where the water flows out and that went down into the tail lights and everytime I washed her i'd get some dirt on the rear bumper...this went on for a few months not too big but still a pain in the ass.
