Congratulations on making the switch to Audi. You *will* be impressed with
the handling, durability, and tautness of an Audi platform. I believe that
some 4000CS models came with the I-5 and some didn't. If I weren't getting a
quattro, but wanted the sedan body, I would hunt for one of these. I have
never seen a 4000S, 4000CS, or any quattro without a sunroof, so one without
would probably be the exception. If you are looking for an older model, a
'5+5' would be a fun drive as well, sticking to the sedan.
I must also commend you on writing 'My Peugeots have spoiled me...' You may
be the first person to *ever* pen these words ;*). My Audi mechanic won't
even *touch* a Peugeot or Alfa - claims they are inherently 'unfixable'. You
are in for a real treat making the several-step jump to Audi.
