The decal you mention, above the heater control panel, is a 83/84
80/4000 quattro specific item.  Non-quattros don't have such a plate.
It says "80 quattro" or "4000S quattro" depending on the country the
car is marketed for.  The later (85 and later) models with the new style
dashboard has a different plate above the glove box, and is found on
all variants (FWD and quattro, as well as Coupe).
