I will also try progressively smaller fuses in my ur-quattro over the next few 
days, and report on how low I have to go to get it to blow.  I'll also inspect 
the loom and see if this 25 amp fuse is hooked up to 1.0 mm wiring!

(My fuse box cover states that fuse 18 also covers the sliding roof fitted to
 Audi 100/80 models.  Do you have a power sunroof, perhaps controlled by 
 the same fuse? 15 amps seems more reasonable for that.)
