There was an account in the UK Club Newsletter (I posted it here) of someone's
serach for an ur-quattro. One of the cars he was blithely offered had zero
compression in #1.
Another thing to check is that all the warning lights have bulbs in them. I've
met two people recently who've bought cars that were showing permanent warnings
- one brakes and one engine warning - but the sellers had removed the bulbs to
disguise the fact.
