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).
