It would appear that your factory radio is not the same as most others'
on this list.  For the US market the factory radio that came with 87 models
(all 4K and 5K variations) is the "Audi design" Rothenberg, which has a
rotary on/off/volume control knob, not pushbuttons.  Nor does it have a
remote control.  Perhaps your radio is one of the factory "upgrades" sold
through the dealer?  It'd be pretty hard to find another one.
