I also have a stock 91 200q20v avant and echo everything Dwight said about his.  I
have 144k on it with absolutely no mods and minimal problems.  On open road trips,
my wife (whose daily transportation is an Isuzu space cab pickup) refuses to drive
it because she seems to settle at around 90-95 as her favorite cruising speed.  My
previous car was an 89 200tqa, which I sold at 350k last year.  I have also driven
the odd A6 and A8, but couldn't imagine parting with the 91 for anything else I
have driven recently.  Regards, Tom
