Mark i have a 93 90csq and i have the exact same problem (except i only
have four holes) if anyone replys to your concern (and i miss it) would you
please email me directly so i can fix this carnage, Thank you. by the way i
love my audi too. I have driven it at excessive speeds and it "feels"
better than being put to sleep at 110km/h (it is limited to 200km/h)  :( ,
but what can you do? I also drove a VW (1986 scirrocco) very nice car, but
way to loud and way to small. You HAVE to appreciate the total lack of
engine and road noise, its wonderful......anyway enjoy your car and welcome
to the family.
