That's interesting.  My first thought would be "was the Ur-Q called 
simply a "Quattro" in this country?"  IF so, then they are referring to 
the Ur-Q in CSP, and you would be still limited to 5-cyl 4000s in DSP.  
However, if they will clarify that they are saying "Any Audi with the 
Quattro system" then indeed, you can run CSP, and update with any other 
drivetrain.  If you were going to do that, I would definitely get a 
written clarification, because this is contrary to their normal way of 
classifying cars.

I don't know, but I suspect that with some machining of the diff, you 
could make it fit.
