I strongly encourage you to get into a "S" car!  After 200,000 miles
of loving my '85 5kCSTQ, I had a '93 V8 Quattro for a bit and then
couldn't resist the '95 S6 that now sits in the garage.  It's everything
I ever wanted to do to the 5kCSTQ, and more!

I see you are in Ohio ... if you are near Columbus email or phone
me and I'll continue the S-car sales pitch.
