Hello all...

I was in Barnes and Noble this past weekend lurking among the car mags and =
lo and behold I found a very interesting English magazine I'd never noticed=
 before.  It's called Audi Driver and had a white 20v UrQ on the cover.  Th=
e magazine features many articles mainly featuring the UrQ and Sport Q.  An=
yone seen it?

There are articles about a Dialynx track car, a comparison between a Sport =
Q and a modern Mitsu Evo and a ton of good pictures.  I snapped it up and h=
ave enjoyed reading it so far...

It's a bit steep at around $10 (imported), but would make a nice little sto=
cking stuffer idea... (no affiliations or connections with the mag or its p=
ublishers, of course).  It struck me as kind of strange (but cool) that suc=
h a large chain would offer a magazine with such a seemingly obscure subjec=
t matter to the general, they had about 6 copies of it.

Anyway, on some of the UrQ's in the magazine (the later cars and 20v's) it =
looks like there's a different front bumper / valence than the US 4kq's and=
 CGT's had.  Seems to have more of a boxy shape with molded vents going the=
 width of the front and incorporates a kind of little lower spoiler...

Does anyone know if the last UrQ's in the US had these as well or is that a=
 special European-spec item?  I'm assuming they'd fit a 4kq since they're a=
ll type 85's...  Any sources stateside?

Thanks for the info... Hope some of you can run out and find the magazine...
