We have a '87 5000CS TQ which just had its 10th birthday party!
Yes, quattros are quite confidence inspiring.  When we bought our '93
we were living in Houston TX.  I nearly bought this car with Q,
but  opted not to because:

1. Bev has back problems and prefers auto tranny.  This was especially
in Houston's stop and go traffic.

2. An auto tranny in Quattro lowers 0-60 times by about 1 sec.  and I
wanted to
  keep acceleration as acceptable as possible (its now at about 10 sec,
while our
'87 TQ was at 7.7 sec.)

3. No winter driving in TX
