Same here.  Mine has 10k miles on it.  I've got the manual,
so I can't comment on the automatic, but I agree with Dave, there's
not a lot of power below 3k.  Be patient with the break-in.  The
engine is very sweet at 5k!

Well, I'm a bit confused, since I didn't install my own changer.
I had Audi toss it in (for free... long story).  I did do a couple
of big writeups, one on taking various interior pieces apart,
for when I installed my radar detector, cell phone, and nicer
front component speakers; and another for the throttle body mod.
If there's stuff in there about the CD changer, it's probably
pretty thin (maybe when I was looking into doing my own and
talking to PIE about the adapter)?  In any case, check the archives
off of the list's web page, you'll find info from a number of A4
