	Thems fightin' words!!  Wow.  "Questionable comparisons"?  I think
that some Wankel(a German design, I might add) history might be
interesting reading for any Audi owner.  Seems to me NSU, who was one of
the first users of rotary engines, is a cousin of Audi.  As a matter of
fact, I think that a 4-rotor Wankel engine would go very nicely in a
5KCSTQ.  700-800 hp would do wonders for that car. 

	I know you're just jokin' right?  ;)
