In my country (Lithuania) the type44 Audi 100 avant quattro is widely
used by cigarette smugglers. They remove everything from the interior
except driver's seat, do some welding on critical points, and off they
go :) The smugglers claim that "it's fast, reliable, spacious, and
very good on offroad". Recently they started using Subaru Legacy wagon
versions too, probably for the same reasons. Sometimes they even try
to ram border patrol's Land rovers and L200's with those beasts :)
