Audi being users of supply parts to the end, some cars got the dual filter
setup long after it should have gone away. The dual filter setup was
originally for the non watercooled turbos. After changing to the watercooled
model in 86, there was some carryover. The aftermarket oil filter books show
dual filter setups through 87, and don't show the single for t and tq...!
