Not that I'm looking to do this tomorrow but it's possible if I kept the car for an extended period and decided to turn it into a project car.

Guy here in Houston had it done on his Beetle, was upwards of $17k.

I'm assuming that the chassis will accommodate quattro without having to weld in mounting points, and cut out pieces. Makes sense to me that they wouldn't have designed two different chassis.
Since Beetles didn't have quattro(4motion) I bet it would be pretty extensive work - cutting, welding, head scratching, etc.

And have an OEM car that you can at least resell down the road.

to retrofit since a 2.0TQ TT is already available!

the front track cars had a completely different rear section that has to be cut out and replaced by that with one from a quattro car. Not sure if the MKII cars are different... but just saying that even though it makes sense to have them all the same.... this is Audi you're talking about!

Drop the MK2 FWD rear sub frame, then bolt up the AWD rear. You'll also need to swap in the AWD trans/transfer case at the front, and the drive shaft.
The gas tank is different between the two, so you'd need to install the AWD version (wraps over the drive shaft).
Recode the car, now you have an AWD 2.0T
Of course, it would be terribly expensive unless you could pick up the pieces from a salvaged 3.2Q.
In the end, probably better to sell the 2.0T and get a TTS. :)

sell the A4 & buy an S4.
