Quote from: David #19063Hi George,Actually, the Continental has the 260 hp Intech 32V V8. Runs and looks beautiful and uses no oil compared to usual oil consumption of my 300 hp Northstar in my 129k mile 96 Concours. My NS uses the same 2-3 quarts ever 3000 miles, just like it did when we bought it with 27k miles over 8 years ago.More than likely, I will be selling my 96 Concours soon for $2,000-2,500 as I am waiting for an friend to be getting their new car and selling me his very nice 01 Buick Ultra.The dealer wants around $1200 for the air ride repair for the front, I assume the same for the back, so $2400. They prety much just replace everything. I have heard that sometimes it is just O-rings leaking air. Strutmasters.com has a complete 4 wheel kit with passive struts for $549 or without the struts for $469. But I have to find someone to install the kit though.In 97, the Continentals dropped the air ride from the front axle. (Smart move for us consumers.) If someone like the COntinentals, I would suggest getting the 97-02 only.David
