     Will it be better? Yes.  Will it be more expensive? Yes, especially if 
     Audi's sales figures continue their current trend.  Will the USA get 
     it in '98?  We'll see.

     As far as I know, the 92-94 100 CSQW is the same beast as the 95-97 
     A6QW.  Minor styling changes (body colored bumpers and trim) were made 
     with the change to the A6 designation.  The quatttro system was also 
     changed with the addition of EDL (that was for '96 I think).  It's a 
     fine vehicle and there's nothing wrong with it that a 5-speed and 
     another 50 horsepower wouldn't fix.  But that option (S6) was taken 
     away from us in the States.
     My feeling is that if you can get a very good deal on one, then go for 
     it.  I've had the thought of trading our 92 100CSQW for a 97 A6QW, 
     mainly for the security of warranty coverage.  But it only has 55K 
     miles on it, is running great and most people who see it, think it's a 
     new vehicle.  Now, if the A4 wagon is made available here, I would be 
     seriously tempted.
