>From a cursory glance at the info I have about urq VINs, it would
appear to me that Audi began production of U.S. urquattros in February
of 1982, but started the VINs at D-900001.  They then continued to
number sequentiall until August of 1982, at which time they switched
to the 1983 production changes and continued numbering at D-9000543
(give or take a few).

Or perhaps they just randomly assigned numbers depending on how the
VIN guy on the production guy felt.  It certainly would make as much
sense as all the other possibilities...
