Top Ten Reasons Why You Should Keep Your Audi

10. You painted your house to match the color of your Audi (Titian Red!)
9. You have formed a passionate attachment to the voice of the parts clerk
at ****** (substitute name of Audi parts supplier).
8. Your Audi dealer needs to put braces on his daughter's teeth. (He also
needs to pay alimony, mortgage on his condo in Boca Raton, Yacht payments, etc.)
7. If in the military, you want to qualify for a section-8.
6. You need an element of uncertainty in your life (will the door handle
work this time?)
5. You love the smell of fresh pentosin on hot pavement (oops, there goes
the steering rack!). 
4. You are watching this q-list with breathless anticipation to see if Phil
is ever stumped. (long wait likely)
3. You love watching the rain hit the window switches when the windows stick
in the down position during a tropical downpour. 
2. The four rings remind you of the four digit total in a typical repair bill. 

And finally...the number one reason to own an Audi: 
1. You are a toy in the hands of the Audi Gods. It's an existential statement.
