Default Difference in A4 and A4 Quattro ?????

Yes I do get the all wheel drive difference but what else? is the body shape different??

I ask as Im looking for a front pass side window regulator for my A4 QUATTRO and I see one for a A4 for 40 bucks but says it does not fit quattro?? All Quattro models are like over 100 bucks. I mean really? really even a slight difference warrants that much of a price difference?

I didnt think body/doors were different? Can anyone shed some light on this?? THANKS

The rear body under floor is different as is the rear suspension and brakes etc.

The doors are exactly the same.

IMHO don't buy a used regulator, they are high failure items . Either buy the repair clips (from ECS I think) or a new one.

Clips were already replace and I do plan on a new one as Ive had alot of issues with them as alot of others here.

After researching even more Im seeing that the original part number
Part Number: 8D0 837 462
is listed for both so...as I thought....there should be no difference in the window regulator between these two models....base and quattro so.... its just the way this retailer I think has them listed. others I see say in their application fitment that it will fit both so....

man the windows in these things are finicky!! prone to damage.

Biggest difference between the 2 is going to be the rear suspension and the exhaust. Other then that everything else works on both FWD and Quattro.
