    I picked up a like new 1997 MK VIII. Has 48K on it. I already did the Strutmasters complete kit with front and rear shocks springs and such. Major difference even though my stock suspension still worked although intermittently. I had an intermittent problem with a warning on the panel which I troubleshot to be a ride height sensor. I decided to just do the non air ride system for reliability sake. I am now (of course!) having the low beam headlight problem so am upgrading to LED today. My trans speed sensor is also starting to be intermittent to I am also installing a new one today as well. So, after today we shall see what else goes wrong in the future! Funny how when ever you bbuy a used car you figure out real quick all the "Yeah, they all do that" things LOL! The car rides and runs great now after a quick tune and swapping a couple stock coil pics for new ones.

    I've never heard of anyone having trouble with the transmission speed sensor.

      Welcome! Be careful with aftermarket coils, many, including myself, have found Motorcraft to be the most reliable.
