RE: '83 5000s turned Q


I think here in the US, the VW Quantum Synchro is pretty much the same
car as a 4000 Quattro, minus a lot of the little extras the quattro had.
 And, of course, the 4000Q was an 80 Quattro in the UK.  

I am pretty sure of this because I have seen them side by side and they
are identical dimensions and the engine is a 5 cyl (as well as the GL5)
the same as the 4000 Quattro, while the standard Audi 4000's and the VW
Quantum's had the same 4 cylinder motor.
