I drive a "stealth" 1989 100Q. The rear deck is completely badgeless,
and the light bar has been upgraded to the big turbo-style one. It
confuses even die-hard Audi enthusiasts, trying to decide what the car is.

I've been thinking of sticking the Audi rings on the center of the
trunk, to imitate a V8. If only the engine would believe that....
