Re: Syncro Quantum / Audi Quattro commonality

Hi Mark:

I am interested in this as well.  From a theoretical point-of-view, I read
that the powertrain is the same.  I don't know if this is so in practice,
and which parts will fit.

Since I will need a rear diff sometime (mine has "play"), I have also asked
this Quattro list.  Hopefully we will get an answer.
