5KTQ, 200TQ or V8...what do I do?

I've been lurking on the list for the last few weeks, and mostly because
of what I've learned here, I'm in the market for a quattro.  I live
outside Seattle and want the snow and ice capabilities the quattro
system provides.  I've also been know to drive, ahem, a little
enthusiastically, but I'm not going racing.

I've found good examples of late '80s 5KTQs, 200TQs and a couple of
really nice V8Qs in the Seattle area.  Here's the deal: it's my money,
but your choice.  What do I buy?  The 5Ks are in the $5-7K range, and
the 200s and V8s are more in $13-16K land.  Mileage varies
appropriately.  What guidance can the assembled wisdom on the List offer
me?  All reasonable intelligent replies will earn my undying gratitude,
and a latte upon reaching Seattle!
