Automatic Quattros

     What is the general consensus on the performance and reliability of 
     the first(?) generation of automatic quattros? I had a look at a '93 
     100 V6 quattro this afternoon, it would make a lovely family car if I 
     could find the coin (very unlikely!). Could probably get it for ~19K 
     Can (they were asking 23K and have already reduced it by 2K), the car 
     looks fully loaded, leather seats etc, 100,000kms.
     Personally I don't have very positive views towards auto Audi's, I've 
     seen too many (newer models) at the local dealership having new 
     trannys fitted. And the thought of it being the first(?) time they 
     mated an auto box to the quattro drive train doesn't inspire 
     confidence. But then again there are a lot of very happy V8 owners on 
     the list, is this basically the same setup as the V8?
