I had the "drive from hell" today in the ur-quattro.
I met three polite and considerate ovloV drivers who used their mirrors.

I met two polite and pleasant Saab 9000 drivers and we snaked through a few 
trucks together.

I met one polite and pleasant 911 Targa driver.
And three absolute ******** in Saab 900 turbos.  Worse than _anything_ ovloV 
used to produce.
A (non-Audi) question - chasing the Porsche I noticed his rear grill would 
swing up and down - sometimes at picnic table level, sometimes flush with the 
body and never stationary in between.  What is this - is it a feature?
