[V8] I learn something every day about the V8 Quattro....

Gee, I never knew about it either.  

Maybe its just something that happens to V8s that live in Wisconsin and have
suffered hail damage.

I wonder what effect the piston re-sequencing has on fuel mileage.  Do you
suppose it is better?

I also wonder which four cylinders stop firing and at what rpm.  Does this
feature require some sort of rerouting of the timing belt automatically?
