Re: 1988 A-100 Quattro

Thank you very much. I'm very happy to find your answer because I had a erroneus information about the car.
I  bought my 100Q four months ago in a OPEL dealer and they told me that the 4WD start with the differencial lock button. Posibly there are other wrong informations like this:
- The buzzing fuel pump is normal (sometimes the noise increase when de fuel tank came be empty, I think)
- The oil consumption is in Highway 10 Litr/100Kms (24mil/gal) and City 13 Litr/100 Km (18 mil/gal).
>From your experience, do you think that this behaviour is normal?.
- They told me that this car was registered in 1998. I look in the Audi list and the first 100Q was in 1989. Are there some place (p.e.internet) to find the 'car origin' by the identification number (chasis)?

Very kind of you.
