RE: Audi Gods Strike!

Sounds like normal maintenance to me.  Thermoswitch most of the time just gets 
wet or corroded.  Did you check that before you replaced it?  Mine did the 
same thing and I cleaned the plug and it worked fine.  Why does the clutch 
need to be replaced all the sudden?  Is it slipping or did a mechanic tell you 
you needed it.  Hoses fall under normal maintanance and any car with your 
presumed miles 100-135k will need hoses.  Also the clutch has probably lasted 
longer than just about any cars clutch will.  Granted this all may be bad 
timing but you bought a car with high miles.  If it does not have high miles 
you got a lemon.  And please don't tell me you put pentosin into the 4kq.

sorry for the BW, but I must ask-

How does one appease the Audi Gods?  I've been trying since I bought my
'864KCSQ in April, but with little success.  Last Sunday I made the mistake of
saying "the car's running great" out loud.  Next morning, _BOOM_, dead battery
(fan thermoswitch)...today the car got new clutch hydraulics, but now needs a
new clutch (~ $700).  Last week it was new hoses.  I won't go into the 
list of everything I've replaced since I've had the car, but trust me, it's
substantial (especially on a graduate student budget).

Is there some sort of a Pentosin Peace Pipe with which I can satisfy the Audi

sorry for venting...
