        Checking out the European Bilstein web site (choose "UK English" or
"Deutsch", not "US English") gives you a full application chart.  If you
choose US you get much less info!  The exciting thing is this chart also
gives "Sprint" applications for those cars Henry mentions above

        Front:  P36-0369        Rear:   B46-2066

        Again, like Henry says, this is the same for almost all big
quattros!  Very exciting to know this from my perspective.  Has anybody put
these sprint applications on a 200tq 20v or V8?  My concern would be any
resultant reverse-raking with stock springs, which I have been sternly
warned against on these cars.
