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.
'90 V8Q - Don't need no stinking badges.
