There are lots of people more qualified than me to answer that one :)
....basically it means 'original quattro' and refers to the first Audi
Quattro coupe sold in the US 1983-1985 or so (but introduced in 1981 ? in

Depends on the car you are working on.....there are always the q-list
archives, 20v-specific pages, etc.

Uh, well, there are some of us w/newer ones (I will occasionally admit to
my 1.8tq), but it's more fun to work, sweat, discuss, etc. our older ones
than something still under warranty, for gosh sakes <grin>.
