Well summarized, Nick.

I own two quattros: an '89 100Q and a '90 90Q20V. Everything on the
20V is twice as expensive and half as easy to get at.

I think it's worth it, though. The car is quite fun, even if it's
a little small for me. There is plenty of power, and the suspension
is balanced pretty well.

Besides, it could be worse; it could be an Ur-Quattro :-)
