In the first place, Dan - your list has been used by UK quattro Club
members for quite some time.  I've been here, on and off, for a couple
of years (check your archives) as have around a dozen others.  I think
we represent as valid a subgroup of Audi enthusiasts as any local US

In the second place, "interested in joining" is long out of date - the
UK club now has seventeen members resident in North America.

Roger Galvin and I have this evening determined that we make a profit
of around GBP0.04 on a surface mail shipment, and around GBP0.20 on
an airmail shipment.  Given the phone calls, faxes, trips to the Post
Office and miscellaneous transcription going on, I doubt _VERY_ much
whether the UK club - well over two dozen of whom are list members -
will receive much in the way of "support".

I believed that what I was posting served a significant subset of the
list.  I've also posted factory oil pressure specifications today, and
other things.  I was also, with the jacket issue, trying to address a
group that exists nowhere else.   How much "Audi content" do you need?

I'm sorry if I caused offence.  I have received an offer to host a
"UK-only" group in email in the last hour - but I find it very, very
sad, in view of the paucity of enthusiasm for Audis around the world,
that we have to be divided.
