Did you do anything at the back end? Your newsletter article didn't actually
say what sort of ur-quattro you finally bought after your long search - the WR
and MB both have non-ventilated rear disks and the MB has a superior ABS system
to the WR, plus wider (8" vs 7") tyres as standard. Have you fitted the 20v's
ventilated rears, or is it already a 20v?
Our US friends won't have to pay VAT, of course, so GBP1200 works out at
around $1550. Plus, as you say, the wheels and tyres.
