Great cars.

ABS came in in 1986; airbags in 1989.5 200's.  These wagons are hard to
find.  I bought a 5kw (non-quattro) and drove it for a year before I found
the '87 5ktqw on sale locally.  I will probably keep this until I can find a
'91 200 tqw.  That was the one and only year for the 20v turbo motored (not
s4/s6) 200 wagons.  And only about 149 of those were imported to the US, so
they're pretty rare.  Good luck in you search.  I'll keep you in mind if I
sell ours.  Probably be about $6k -$7k though.
