Thanks to computers it is possible for the dealer to look up *ALL* of the
service done by *ANY* Audi dealer based on the VIN of the car. The infor-
mation is coded, so you need the secret decoder ring, but the dealer should
be able to tell you what it all means. I recently saw a notice at a nearby
dealer that stated that they would check any car to see if there were any
outstanding recalls (for free). I wouldn't be surprised to hear that this
was actually stipulated by law. Perhaps you can use the request for recall
info to get the overall service history ...
