Hi there George!

My resurfaced EM on my '83 QTC has served me well for about 8 years now, 
and I'm contemplating the same work on the '88 5kTQW.  Personally I would
be surprised to hear that you experienced anything different.  

I'm sure that you will thoroughly enjoy the trek to the continent.  I am
so envious of you quattro fans in the isles, one since they were imported
there more years and two since you are a quick hop from such landmarks as
the Nurburgring, Stelvio Pass and Ingolstadt.  Make sure that you enjoy 
the trip enough to satisfy those of us who can be there only in spirit!
