     The '90 V8Q's are sans-badges in the US. The rear window
     defogger spells out "Quattro", the V8 has the rear window
     shade, lightbar/reflector on trunk, red turn signal
     lights that blink yellow, flared fenders, wipers on
     the headlights, and a list of "minor" differences that
     would probably rival a "which tires" or "best oil" post
     for bandwidth.  The differences may seem minor, but a
     V8Q owner can spot another V8Q a mile away.

     I'm know the archives are chocked full of V8Q info, so
     an afternoon checking them may be worthwhile. They are
     a pain (no offense Phil) and time consuming to scan.
