Not seeing many in the SF Bay Area these days. Even less so C900.
There are some 9-3SS still around. Never see any on I5 up and down to LA. Los Angeles there are some around still. Probably due to people like Anders and the other sponsors.
My 2005 93-SS/190K is easy as there are still lots of parts. I have a tech2/security access, which is have not really needed much for anything that has failed. Very reliable car still.
1993 C900T Conv is getting really hard, due to parts. Anything plastic is just risky to touch. Failed CA smog for EVAP and may need a fuel tank. Very hard to find one. Only 130K and a stick/turbo, so hate to give up! Very quiet on the C900 forum these days so think most are gone.
Audi A5 is an interesting comparison. Very sophisticated car - especially the dual clutch transmission and just how small the 2.0L engine is. Still miss 1984 hatchback C900 though, my first new car but the Audi is not bad at all.
