 Jim, thanks for the compliment!  The Quantum Syncro Wagon was from LATE
'85 to '88.  Anyways, the parts are very hard to get and expensive
because a lot of the parts are VW yet almost the same as Audi.  There
are a lot of interchangable Audi/VW parts though.  The system is pretty
much the same.  I'm not a mechanic, just a hobbiest, but am learning as
i go with this one!  I've heard that the 4000Q suspension is very close
to the QSW's.  You'd have to put them up against each other and see what
fits.  I would love to know if anyone knows about any suspension or
engine mods available myself.
