Re: '88 Urquattro in my garage...



what with the various recent threads on ur-q values, brakes, tor$ens, and
trading in ur-q's for more modern 's' cars, one thing tends to get lost...

if you can get an ur-quattro, preferably a mb/rr torsen one, then, every week,
take it to your favourite 'b' road, and it will still reward you with a
wonderful drive, and make anything audi has done since (in the sheer driving
pleasure department), look pretty thin.  wonderful cars...
