Discovered my Audi A5 quattro is front-wheel drive - what are my rights?

I bought a Audi A5 TDI quattro two years ago. A few weeks ago - while getting some new tyres fitted - I was told that my car is front-wheel drive and not a quattro.

I have since been back to the dealer where I bought it from and they were surprised. However, they said they don't check all of the cars to ensure they're two-wheel or four-wheel drive. What should I do?

The passage of time is no defence. He sold you a front-wheel drive Audi as a quattro when it was not in fact a quattro and if he does not buy it back from you for a sensible price based on the price you paid for it (given the passage of time and the miles you put on it) or give you the deal you ask for (a reasonable £1200) you can sue him.
