TTq apparently now on sale in US
I thought the q version wasn't to be around until later in the year (maybe
later is now?) but riding around in the golf cart at Peterson Audi/VW (and
Lexus/Toyota/BMW/Kia/Jeep/Eagle) here in Boise while looking for the '95 A6
avant I'm supposed to be checking on for a friend (and still haven't got
any hints on things to look at, by the way) there were a gray and blue TT,
still partially cocooned. Complementing the seemingly-display-only black
fwd one parked up on the showroom patio, I thought, but then saw the little
"quattro" badges. The salesman/golf-cart-pilot said he didn't even know
they were back there, just laughed when I asked about test drives.
The avant was nowhere to be found, having been sent out for detailing after
undergoing the inspections necessary for Audi Assured status. I will
definitely call ahead to ensure that it is there, not just "should be
around" before the next time, possibly Thursday.
Took the opportunity to attempt to order a headliner for my GTI, having
heard elsewhere that they were NLA - but using some odd computer system
called ETKA (no really, that's what it said on the function-key overlay
temaplate :) the dealer parts person checked for a good part number and
placed the order, we'll see what happens in a week.
1991 200 quattro, 105k, door wires all fixed, new windshield scheduled for
tomorrow but no tint before the Vail trip so maybe not at all this summer
1988 GTI 16v, 198k, possibly to have a non-saggy headliner soon, next would
be rear shock(s)
