I had a chat with Brian Ricketts down at BR Motorsport about low-mileage ur-
quattros, some while ago now.
He has observed that low-mileage WR engines in 1982 to 1986 cars have a
tendency to require rebuilds _very_ early in life (before 50k miles) if the car
is only used periodically.
One car belonged to someone working in the Gulf, and was used as a daily driver
for two months of each year - then mothballed (properly) for ten months. The
engine failed at 46k miles.
