    1998 T/A

    127K on my 98. The only problems I've had are a caliper braket bolt came off and locked my brake up, and a couple wheel studs broke. Both were kinda scary when they happened, but were really easy fixes. I still pound on it every day and go to the track on a regular basis, so I feel lucky.

    1999 Trans Am

    99 with 120k. Runs like a champ. Great thing is the wife knows when doing routine things that only performance parts will replace the OEM parts so I do not have to take so much grief. If it was a low milage car with no problems then I would hear why are you changing that if it does not need it. I tried telling her my super charger was going to need to be replaced. Someone let her on to the fact I did not have one. Gotta try however.

    1999 T/A WS.6

    How strong is the stock A4 transmission? Mine's at 139k.. same with the rearend. Still no problems. And I gun it as much as I can. :P.

    I have an old V6 firebird I use as a mostly daily driver. It's also the car I take better working parts from when something goes wrong :v.

    So far I've leeched a:
    -Drivers side tail light housing
    -Drivers side window motor with <1k miles on it
    -Both uncracked door panels


    Win!

    Well mine did not last long but I put on a stall and it ate it in about one week and a half. I did do a lot more racing back then tho.

    98 TA with 49k miles mostly in storage

    Issues:
    Fuel pump
    Water pump
    Pop up headlight motor
    Window motor
    o2 sensor
    Lots of tires

    I'm sure you can put that combo together for how it's being driven

    Any suggestions on what I should plan on failing next? Power Steering pump?
