100/200 (which was the 5K in Europe) maintained Audi traditions to the 
bitter end (1991, after which it was S-Car and V8):  Same/similar 
hydraulics, newer but still weak-pointed door handles and some of the same 
types of electrical anomalies, all in cars that age so gracefully 
physically and go so well when they go.
