Never saw this get to the list. So I'm resending...

That's me. Is there a FAQ for this list? I'm considering buying an
AWD vehicle as my daily driver/ski car to put the M3 in semi
retirement and I'm trying to decide between an early 80's Impreza or
Legacy or a mid-80's Audi quattro of some variation.
Would anyone be willing to answer questions for me on or off line
regarding the differences between 100/200/4000/5000 and what makes a
car an S, or CS? What about turbo longevity and insurance costs of a
turbo? How about maintenance costs and typical problem areas? I often
see 5KTQs for around $4-7K and 4000CSQ's for around $4K whaich is about
what I want to spend(91 Subaru Legacy L AWD run around $6K here). I'm
always thinking that a 5K is too big- I live in SF and want a little
car that I can point and shoot and most importantly, park. How about
engine output and acceleration information? and ABS availability? I'm
not looking for an Audi version of my M3 but I want to be able to merge
with freeway traffic...
anyone own both an Impreza/Legacy and a quattro that has tips about
why the Audi was better? (I'm guessing that this list will be a bit
biased to Audis)
