In Europe and other markets excluding the US (we never get the fun stuff) the 
S2 was available from '88 to ??.  I think you could get the Ur-Quattro with 
the 20v motor starting in '85 or '86.

Not entirely true.  The 20v turbo motor was stuffed in a 4 door 90Q and
called the S2 as well.  See EC Jan. 1994 pg 108.

The only difference I know of between the S4 and S6 are cosmetics.  The
black door trim became body colored for instance.  All very minor.

The S6 has electronic differential lock and the way cool 3 spoke wheel with 
airbag.  S4's had the stock 4 spoke wheel because Audi couldn't figure out a 
way to stuff an airbag (required by NHTSA) into the S-series steering wheel.  
The S4 had better looking stock wheels, too (IMHO).
