The first thought that comes to mind is "60 Minutes".  I still hear people
make comments like "Ohh, an Audi....don't those things accelerate by
themselves..."  But I also do believe they were overpriced and underpowered
vs the competition.  But on the good side, great build quality (not matched
by their current cars, IMO) and driving characteristics + QUATTRO.

And speaking of sticker prices, as some have posted for '91 CQs--how about
this--1984 Urquattro (Turbo Quattro Coupe) sticker price of $37,000---and
those are 1984 $$$$$!  Big ouch.

'84 urquattro
'98 A4
