Exactly, I think the cut-off (according to the service rep at my dealer was
May 3.  If you took delivery after this, you didn't get a 1000 check under
the Audi Advantage program.

Actually, the current sales cycle ends August 30; they run in 4 month cycles
Jan-Apr; May-Aug; Sep-Dec.  If he wanted you to pick it up by the end of
Aril, he was squeezing everything into the last cycle.  BTW, did you get a
portion of the $1000 holdback they got for your sale?
