The sidemarker lights can be purchased from any number of places but also
from the local salvage yard since they came on all the early '80s 4ks ...
buck-a-piece around here.

As for the wood, my '89 200q HAS "wood" trim around the climate control
faceplate and on the ashtray ... am I to understand from your query that
they all don't?

Most 200qs came with a K24 turbo, which is supposed to improve spool up and
low-end torque ... sounds to me like something's wrong with your car
somewhere.  My 200q will definitely pull my '85 Ur-Q off the line...
