I feel obligated to clarify the confusion: fellow listers, who steered me in the right 
direction, were Mark Hilbush and Greg Spark. Thank you vey much, gentlemen!
If it were not for you, I would've gotten the '97 A4 w/o a Sport Package, 3-spoke 
steering wheel and with the crappy H-rated Eagles LS. Instead of that I am getting a 
one year younger car, with the Sport and it comes on SP8000! I'd say that I owe each 
of you a Martini (along with something from a boutique microbrew for Mark;-).

Thanks again,
