I am newly registered here in the hopes of learning
more about my car.
I am the proud owner of a 1983 Audi 4000S Turbo Diesel
and I would like to learn more about it. I am in the
process of restoring this fine automobile and through
this process I am discovering that it is a rare model
these days. I am writing you to learn more about this
car as there is no information available from the
original dealer or other sources I have tried.
I have posted queries on a number of Audi and VW
diesel enthusist websites and chat rooms, but I have
yet to get a response from anybody in the
international community that has had any experience
with this model configuration. I have not heard from
any other similar model owners or even VW owners that
have Jettas or Passats configured with this
1983 Audi 4000S Turbo Diesel

Trans: FWD Automatic 089 E mode

To this end, I hope that you might be able to let me
know the following:
How many of this model were built?
How many were imported to Canada / North America?

Any other data that you may provide.
