Default Wheel alignment data, Audi Factory Specifications?

Someone please help me out here. I had a long day sitting at the dealership service department today since 7:30am-3pm. I have the bentleypublishers service manual for the C5 and it has lists of wheel alignment data for all the suspension models. I went to the dealership to get my alignment done (since none of my local mechanics (within a 30 mile radius) could get it done right) and I wanted it to be correct for once, which was the main reason I went to an audi dealer to get it done. They did the alignment and according to the bentleypublishers book, they used the specifications for a front wheel drive model, meanwhile I have a Quattro...

Does anyone have an official Audi service manual with the correct specifications for a 2001 Audi A6 2.7T Quattro with a 1BE (sports) suspension? A picture of the page with page number and book isbn would be awesome, please? Or help me out with finding the correct specs somewhere officially, other than what their Hunter alignment machine had...

I called AoA and another dealership and they couldn't give me the correct specs. =(
Do I need to call Germany?

I can sort of feel that the rear camber is wrong, on hard turns the rear end lifts up higher...

Or if someone works with Hunter wheel alignment machines, can you check if there are 2 choices for the A6. Under Audi is there A6 and A6 Quattro, or only A6?

I too may be in the same situation. Did you find the correct specs. I have an 04 quattro 2.7t S Line and just had the front end replaced and wondering if we are aligning to the correct specs.

What makes you think there are 2 sets of specs for the same car? The quattro only references the AWD option. I would make the assumption that the front end/steering is the same for both versons and so are the caster, camber, toe, and toe out on turns specifications.
