I can't remember which models they were, but when I went to the Portland
Auto Show back in February, I know that at least two of the cars there
claimed to be automatic Quattros.  I wouldn't own one myself, just sitting
in it reminded me too much of my '80 4KS with the slushbox.  It was a great
car but I had to ditch it because I could come up with the cash out of
pocket to replace the tranny.  (However, my bank would loan me $3500 to go
buy an '85 GT and fix it's problems.....go figure!)

If you want, I could call out to Sunset Porsche/Audi and find out which
models are avail in autos.
