Re: Euro Quattro's??


I have not followed this discussion thread in full, but a few things come to
mind as a reaction to your message:
  - my dealer told me last November that the European Delivery Program
    was no longer available for Audi (it is still done for Porsche, though)
  - cars in Europe are very expensive compared to the US, especially 
    if you equip the european car at the same level as the US model
  - cars in Germany are more expensive than just about anywhere else in
    Europe (for the same car, that is.) Italy and Spain are usually a lot
    less (I have some figures, but not with me. Let me know if you want
    the data I have)
  - as pointed before, importing a euro-spec car in the US is complex and
    difficult, if not impossible
