BOGE Turbo-Gas for ur-quattro???
Yes, they are available. I bought a set of four just two weeks ago for my 
April'85 ur-quattro. I have also replaced the top mounts just in case.
All four corners are the same part numbers.
BOGE Turbo-Gas inserts......BOGE part no. 32920F
 (They are listed on page 12 of the BOGE catalogue)
I purchased them from my local aftermarket shop for 51 Irish pounds each.
I believe they were supplied to him by German and Sweedish in the UK (who
advertise them in Volkswagen Audi Car magazine every month at 46 pounds Stg.
I went for original fitment as I want to keep the car as close to original
spec. as possible. (The condition of most Irish roads had some bearing on
this as well!)
