I bought my 84 4000S Q from the original owner, who saved all the
maintenance records,etc :-) including the original window sticker.
>From the "Standard Equipment at no Extra Cost" portion, abbreviated
to save some typing effort:
power steering, brakes, windows, mirrors, locks, antenna
velour cloth upholstery
rear window defrost
front air dam, rear trunk lid spoiler
3-point belts front/rear
and a raft of other miscellaneous stuff that doesn't weigh very much.
Mine shows a power sunroof on the options list, along with "no charge"
for dark brown cloth upholst. and alpine white paint (big deal, eh?)
The list does say "Illuminated glove box, trunk, lighter, and ashtray"
but doesn't mention the damn interior light; apparently they figured
(correctly) that it wasn't worth mentioning. Maybe they were afraid
of lawsuits for "implied suitability for intended purpose" :-)
The next question, of course, is: That's for the 4000 *S*. Were there
any "non-S" 4000 quattros in the U.S.?
