re: Odd Quattro Sighted.

The wife has an 87 5000SQ, it is lacking in acceleration but
she doesn't think so.  Big advantages to the non-turbo Q is
its simplicity and space in the engine bay.  Less heat too, steering
rack hasen't failed for example.  With 135K miles on ours, very
little has gone wrong.  Best car we've ever had.(next to the 911 that is)
