Re: Pros and cons of v8 Quattro (200 vs V8)

As current V8 owner and last toy a 5KTQ I can tell you they are very
different.  Love them both. Completely different experiences.  The V8 is
a real highway cruiser and the 5K much sportier, esp the manual trans. 
I still look at the 5ks with interest, but also other V8s. I'd say the
V8 is sporty though more of what we used to call a "sleeper" back in the
muscle car days.  Most people are surprised to see them go as they are
usually kind of non-descript from the outside.
