And it's part # 444 907 388. The ABS controller changed in the ur-quattro at
VIN 85-H-900252 and the part # 857 907 379 acquired a "B" suffix. I can't see
that the wiring loom changed, though, and a _lateral_ accelerometer was always
fitted to Sport quattros. Perhaps this connector is present on more cars.
