Just got back from playing in the snow with my Q. The college I graduated from has a HUGE parking lot that was calling my name. I had my 90q pegged at 6k and just tooled around the lot sideways for a good half hour. Just didn't seem to get old :lol:

A lot of aspects of winter I can do without, but I love driftin' and general sideways action :woowoo:

Big parking lots are fun for sure. My wife begs me to take her out when we get a big dump of snow. I think she has more fun riding than I do driving......
nah! Lets hear some more winter driving stories.

you must not own many type 85s then? :)

I agree with the no-rust claim on my type89 90q... 300k miles on the clock and not a speck of rust on the underbody. Galvanization rules!

I have never understood why everyone refers to Audi's with the type#.
Whats wrong with 4kq?90q?5000tq? I'm just curious? to be honest I'm not sure what a type 89 is.

and my car is known as the b2, audi 4000 and 80-90 of years 85-87. and I believe, the type 81 is just the predicessor (81-84 model years). and now kids, that's how we all got confused :bashtard:

The reason I refer to the different body styles by type is just for convienience...

I could have said:

80, 90, coupe quattro

but "type 89" encompases all of them.

same as type85 == 4k, coupe gt, UrQ.

Man, my fiance from Southern California hasn't figured it out how fun it can be yet. My fishtailing and sliding around corners usually results in her swearing she'll never ride with me again. They've been out spraying de-icer on the roads so hopefully we'll get some snow tonight here in CO.

You're lucky...

Here in Michigan it's been 40+ degrees and rainy all weekend.

No snow anywhere anymore :(

I'm glad I didn't blow a carpload of money this year on winter tires.

here's a couple of pics. the one with the upside down car shows how stupid people can be,the snow was only about 5-6 inches of mostly slush. and about 50ft before it there was a bread van and three cars all try to occupy the same space at the same time :p
