    Too much work as the floorpan between quattro and FWD is totally different and will require major work in welding alone ! Easier to buy a quattro sport and just swap your fancy bits to it ! I have 2 quattro sports if you're interested...

    are they totally different floorpans? b4 fwd and quattro share the same floor, and b4 quattro share the same suspension setup and everything as a b5?? worth looking into if you can find a quattro in a scrapyard and get the bits cheap
