It is the type 44. We had it from 1989 to 1991 here in Europe, so they
are not that rare in Germany. My car does not have power seats or
sunroof, but all the other equipment. It has got the factory fog
lights in the front bumper - looks neat! :-)

I will check. I found the big breather hose to be completely rotten,
maybe that can cause problems too? I've had problem with the MM hose
on my last turbo Audi (200TQ), I know it usually goes bad on the 10v
cars, but I'll check all hoses on this car too. BTW, even this 20vt
pulls a lot better than my chipped 10vt.. :-)
