    Ah. It may not come here, they do give different options to different markets so just because it is available in Germany doesn't mean it will ever be here.

    I doubt it tbh. There's not much demand for four wheel drive here as we don't get the harsh winters they do in many European countries so, whilst they'll offer it on some models, it'll be far more restricted.

    I'm not getting mine for harsh winters. More for wet weather, of which the UK has plenty. But I agree we'll never see a 150 Quattro here.

    I'm not getting into the Quattro vs non-Quattro argument at all - if you want it then by all means get it - just saying that the UK market as a whole is nowhere near as big on four wheel drive as on the continent, so it doesn't make sense for Audi to build loads of RHD Quattro models really :)

    yeah thanks guys, i didnt think we would but may need to go to the 184.

    im just after quattro due to sunny scotland weather and house location makes quattro and winter tyres a much more usable and safer tool

    I've always wanted to be able to say "fire up the quattro" but living in the temperate and relatively flat and protected from the elements south it was hard to justify Ca. £2K to live that part of the dream....I might just go for one of those £7 grill badges from ebay and pretend!!!!!!!!
