RE: '86 4000 quattro purchase

Depends on what you want.  If going really fast is your thing than the 5000s 
have much more go fast potential for relatively cheap.  But they are big cars 
and have big car handling compared to the 4ks.  You can put a 5000 turbo motor 
in a 4000 and that evens things out quite a bit but thats quite a bit of work. 
 As you can see by the SIG I am a very happy 4k owner who will eventually put 
a turbo motor in when I get the cash.

I just signed up to the digest today as I am looking at the purchase of an
1986 4000 Quattro.  I would appreciate any advice, especially things to
watch out for, on this model.  Is there a better choice for a Quattro in
this vintage/price range?
