So far, there's nothing too common that hasn't been well documented. 
The early V6 engines (good chance you have one) leaked oil from every
seal--check the oil periodically.  There was also some difficulty with a
power steering hose--watch the fluid, I guess.

Many of the vendors on the vendor list
(http://coimbra.ans.net/quattro/tech/parts_vendors.html) will carry
parts for this car.  As for performance parts, well, good luck because
there really aren't all that many.  Try TAP
(http://www.tap1.com)--they're not the only ones out there but they seem
to have most of what's available.

Hasn't given me any trouble yet, anyone with more than 50,000 miles care
to comment?
