Here we go...

My 1990 CQ has no badges either - Just the 4 rings in chrome and
"Quattro" spelled out by the rear window defrost element.  Was this the
standard setup?

BTW, from a distance my girlfriend still can't tell the difference between my
CQ and a red Sentra, red Jetta, etc.!  (She doesn't share my enthusiasm) 
Kind of ruins one of my favorite aspects of the car - it's the only one of its
kind in the city! :-)
