My understanding has always been that the 80 and 90 (4000/4000 5-cyl.) were
generally excellent cars. My own 1984 4000 is nearing the 285 000 km 
(180 000 mile) mark, with only 20 000 of those miles on the second engine,
which I transplanted about a year ago. My relationship with a 1987 5000 CD
(American CS) Quattro was absolutely wonderful, and the latter's replacement,
an S4, has been no different.

I just can't relate to these horror stories about Audi.
