Hmm, all this quattro IV mumbo jumbo has got me thinking...I was planning on 
buying my buddy's '98 a4 1.8tq when his lease is up in Nov. But in Tahoe 
during the worst bliz' I'd ever seen, let alone driven in, my ol' '87 5kcstq 
kicked ass. Crankin' that knob got through some deep pack chopra.  Me no 
want to slip...

Maybe, just maybe, I'll keep the old gal for ski trips...
