The last point is worrying me a little. I'v driven a couple of dozen early
1980s Audi 80s, a few Passats, and we owned an Audi 80CD for ten years. It has
now been replaced by a (not much younger) Passat. The ur-quattro is obviously
in a quite different league, but all of the foregoing have had a certain
combination of power, handling and feedback that is rare in other brands.
What specifically worries me is that I feel this combination is missing from
Audi's newer models. A nicely run in and cared for 4kq, IMO, is a better
driver than an A4.
