Gaaaaack, no no no no. Not a Taurus! Bad Rob!!! If you like the way the
Quattro drives, but have the fears you mentioned, why not get an older
version of a quattro? I know exactly what you are talking about. We (my
wife and I) just got a '91 200 tq (sort of a poor man's S4) and I feel a
lot easier parking my wife's old 1984 4000 with 250k on it in tight
parking lots. Wouldn't want to see the 200 tq's pearl white get a door
ding. I also have a 1986 4000 quattro that is super clean. I have often
considered getting another one _with_ dings for my daily driver. Best
compromise I have come up with is to ride my bicycle to work a few times
a week. Good luck!
