re: Bentley references to rear torsen diff
Phil Rose posted about the bentley manual for the 88 to 91 100/200 series type
44 having some limited references to a rear torsen diff:
Well, no one venturing to comment (or speculate) on ol' Bobby Bentley
managing to misidentify (in two different places) the '89-'91 200q rear
differential as "torsen"?? Yes, I realize the facts appear to be otherwise,
so this is a pretty major error-although I guess it's not likely to lead to
any grief. I know the Bentleys are infamous for lack of "how-to" detail,
but are they typically so "off the mark"?
Trying to place a more positive spin on it (groan...no pun intended), might
this be a clue that Audi actually had some (limited) production of rear
Torsens during the '89-'91 period--or that they had _intended_ to do so? I
gather from a recent post that this (Torsen rear) was present in some years
of S4/S. Or was that some other form of LSD?

My thoughts on this is that it is likely from the audi service details for the
V8, which did have a torsen rear. Likely they picked out the wrong figure for
the manual; or the wrong legend, anyways.
