Audi 5000. That's an Audi 200, right? Here in the UK they offered it from
the factory with the 20 valve normally aspirated 5 cylinder, didn't they?
I'm sure they did, because the 200 turbo quattro 20 V never made it here,
and I've seen cars with the 20 valve legend strapped to the back of them.
Anyway, if they can put it in a coupe in place of the 10 valver, surely
it'll fit in a saloon? Have got the brochures back at home, but I won't
be there for yonks (about six weeks).
