I would like to hear more about the 5+5 symptoms that caused the you guys to
split up. I own an 81 5+5 with about 150k on it now and seems like it will
live a long life. It is burning some oil, but I drive it about 1000(close to
that) miles a week, mostly city driving. I deliver pizza in it and drive it
to school and even autoxed this summer, so you can imagine the hell I put it
through. I love driving this car as much or more than my GTi with its mods.
This summer I am going to make the big decision as to which car will get to
stay with me. If I choose the Audi, I'm going to get serious with it. Later.
