When I get a post on the "QUATTRO" list like this I've got to wonder WHY 
I'm here:

Just WTH does this have to do with this list... What does that stupid 
"UAO Braking" thread have to do with why we are here, What does the Age 
thread have to do with Q's?????

This place is tended by Dan to talk about AUDI's....  Hence the name 
"Quattro List".... 

Could we try to remember that?

Grumpy because one of my best friends just had his Calloway Twin Turbo 
Alfa Rammed by a Drof..  It's gonna be EXPENSIVE to fix..
