Hmmm... swamped by orders for an Audi video? Is this list _that_ active, or
is Audi just enjoying an upsurge in interest in the US?

I've got a video called 'quattro-Die neue Dimension', also an Audi AG
production, in which Walter Roehrl is interviewed inbetween footage of the
'84 and '85 rallye seasons. It's only 24 minutes long, but entertaining, if
not as entertaining as 'Triumph of an idea'. (The problem for me being that
it's in German, and Walter Roehrl's accent is slightly hard to follow for
someone not used to it.) Dunno if there's an English or subtitled version
Another nice video is 'The greatest years of rallying-the 80's' by BHP from
the UK (1990). A 90-min unbiased, enthusiastic overview of what, in my
view, is the best period in rallying ever. Nice footage, good commentary,
conveys the atmosphere very well indeed. Recommended.



PS Just read somewhere that the Audi A4 comfortably outsells the BMW
3-series and Mercedes C-class _combined_ here in Holland. Wow!
