What a moron. You can contact the publishers of the manuals at:
www.bentleypublishers.com and they'll either sell you a manual or send you
to someone who can. The 5000 manuals (no listing for the South African 500,
but they're probably not listed as they're not in demand as much) are
available back to the 70's. You might also talk to the folks in the Parts
department at an Audi dealer. Sales guys are most conversant with the new
models, and unless they're a grizzled old veteran who was with the company
in the 60-Minutes Uncontrolled Acceleration Fiasco Era, or a keener who
wants to leap up the corporate ladder, you're not going to find too many
that know anything about the old 5 cylinder models. The Parts guys, though,
deal with the 5 cylinder cars every day. All Audi manuals and publications
should have a part number - they may be able to find it for you - and maybe
even order it in for you.

Some one else also told me that and he turned out to be right.
Regarding the manual, I bought the car about three months ago obviously
without a manual. I did contact Audi South Africa for a replacement
manual,but (unlike BMW who gave me a manual for my '90 model car), the
salesman bursted out laughing and told me there was no way I would get
a manual for a car that's ten years old!
So without an owners manual, you guys were the next obvious choice. I
don't know about your country but here in SA there's no way that an
agent will help you with even the simplest thing if you aren't willing
to spend a fortune on services and repair.
Thank very much for all your help
