I own a 1991 Coupe Quattro (15K miles, getting stronger
and improving mpg) in Bedford MA.
I have a few questions I hope people can help with:
1. The owners manual recommends a max RPM of 6300, yet the
redline on the tach starts at 7000. The engine seems
very willing to spin past 6300, so what do people really
use as max RPM? What with the engine being a little
peaky, it would be nice to have a few hundred extra
revs to play with :-)
2. This car has the nice 7" alloy wheels, and I'm looking
for something to clean them with. I have a bottle of a
product called P21S Wheel Cleaner (it's German and claims
to be approved for all alloy wheels on the 4 major
German manufacturers' cars). Also claims to be nonacidic
and nonalkaline. Does anybody have any experience with
this? Any other recommended wheel cleaners?
3. Although the leather seats are verrry nice, I tend to
sweat a lot (in summer, or after a game of rugby) and
they are not so good then. Also I don't want to stain
them. So, does anybody know of a source of fabric seat
covers for the front seats?
4. I am thinking of getting some narrower wheels and M+S
tyres for the upcoming winter. I'm not looking to plough
through heavy snow, just to better handle a couple of
inches of snow and slush (the 205s felt a bit floaty last
winter). Any recommendations on wheel and tyre sizes and
