As a long time EE I love analog meters as much as anyone, but they do have
their place. Given that you want to use it to work on your Audi IMHO there
is a much better option ... and it is a digital meter. If you do your own
tune-ups one thing that is a necessity is the ability to measure duty cycle.
A few years back I found a digital meter made by SunPRO which works quite
well on Audis. I believe that the model number is CP7678. The thing that
is really nice about it is that it does have the 5-cyl setting for tach and
dwell (although dwell is not too useful any more). I happened to get mine
on sale at Grand Auto for ~$60 a few years back, and I have seen them for
sale at Sears as well.
But then as Scott M can tell you Tektronix makes some pretty good digital
multimeters as well! If they could only make a $500 LCD scope for autos ...
