	Pound for pound, it's a pretty good deal as it stands -- the local
	dealer charged me $6.80 or so for it ! And yes, I had to go to
	the Porsche parts counter, because the Audi folks had run out.

	My plug was mangled by some quick oil-change gorilla as well (not
	that you're one, Joe :-)), but I think the problem is that the head
	is too small for the area of the mating surface.  Now that I've
	had it replaced, I hope I'll be able to get it off myself next
	time ...
