By default, Audi dealers will fill with hydraulic fluid, not ATF.
IMO this is a _good_ idea, since it prevents the minkey boys from
missing the fact that a 1987 ur-quattro _NEEDS_ Pentosin. I know you
guys don't have any ur-quattros like this in the States, but we sure as
hell do and I've seen too many systems ruined by the wrong fluid.
