We own a 93 400e (my wife bought new) & a recently purchased 90 300TE which I will modify slightly to my taste as a daily driver.

The 400e is about finished, stock, but cleaned up with a new engine and trim pieces that wear out with age. The car drives well and is happiest @ 80mph while being unseen as it were in traffic. Beautiful road car for the 2 of us. It is getting new 16x7 factory (stock type ASA) replacement wheels with yet another set of Michelins while the older 15" set I am refinishing, re-shodding & installing on the 90-TE as soon as I have time to get into the garage and do so.

I bought the 90 300TE intending to build a 400TE out of the car but have since decided the 6 has plenty of power and rides quite nicely as is. I intend to lower it a small amount to remove some of the air gap between the tire & fender lip, repaint the body the original color as well as the cladding and upgrade the interior to that of the 400e with Burl, leather seats, door panels and new carpet throughout. I had the windows tinted with ceramic film (legal light admission) and am again collecting parts to upgrade the car if I can make the time to do so.

I have scanned the site and found useful info already. I appreciate joining.
