Re: 1990 Model 80 Quattro Trivia

Actually, according to Consumer Reports Used Car Guide (thanks to 
ScottB), the '91 Audi 80 weighs in at 2850 lbs, about the same as a 
4000CSQ.  The model 90 is heavier at 3000.  So now the question is -- 
why did the US model gain 200 pounds over the Euro 4000CSQ and 90Q  but 
only 50 pounds on the Euro 80Q?  Why so much weight gain anyway? 
Bumpers and air bag?
