Burl, you're absolutely right.  I neglected to make it clear to everyone that
I'm in Canada, and this is almost certainly a "Canadian" import.  Sorry to
take up people's time on this but I hadn't seen anything indicating the
difference between U.S. models and Canadian ones, so I didn't think of the

One other difference I noted in the past was in the 5000 series, where the
Turbo (non-Quattro) model in the U.S. is noted as a 5000CS, but in Canada it's
the 5000CD.  Anyone know of a list of other differences between Audi models in
the U.S. and Canada?

Thanks to all who replied...
