Audi 5000 non-turbo Quattro ?

My '87 5kcstq has 5-bolt Ronals... but they came off a Canadian car,
where those wheels were the norm instead of the 6-slot aero wheels.

If his car was a 5000 CS quattro, it's a turbo. I guess Audi thought
5000 CS turbo quattro was too long, so the turbo is implicit. These cars
have 5-bolt lugs. 

The 5000 S quattro also had 5-bolt wheels, I believe. The 5000 CS (no
turbo, no quattro) had 4-bolt wheels--Ronals, in fact, like the 4k.
