Re: Syncro Quantum / Audi Quattro commonality
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.
