Well not to nit pick, but your single volume Bentley is probably a
different edition than mine.  Mine only covers 1984-86 5KS/CST/TQ.
It does not include 87 and 88 models.  The Audi part number is
LPV 8000 444 and the Bentley stock number is A586, ISBN # 0-8376-0357-9.
The inside of the book shows that the printing date was 10/86, so
it can't possibly include models in the future.

Thus, when one speaks of single-volume Bentley v. the 2-volume sets
for the 5K series, there are variations within each.

96 A4 2.8 quattro
84 5000S 2.1 turbo
80 4000 2.0
