Re: Ur-Q ... buyer's market or seller's market?

Yes, there are other machines out there that may provide the same
experience, but they are not Urquattros.  Even if the experience is less
than other cars for same or less money, I want to keep the Urquattro in my
garage for it has great emotional value to me as a part of Audi's heritage.

I spent $20K for the car 1.5yrs ago and have since then spent an equal
amount in its restoration  including complete leather RR interior, new 8"
Ronals/P-Zeros.  The car is a stock '88 MB save for the interior, Konis, and
an MTM modified ECU and associated bits for an extra 20-30 hp.  The power is
on par with an RR now, and the unmistakeable sound of the 10-valve engine
will keep me from trading for an RR.  The odometer now reads 390K km, but
she feels like new at 220km/h plus...
