Hmmm....but the CarComp tool only works on '92-up Audi's; not much good for
me or many others on the list.  See note below......it was a response I got
from John Grable at CarComp when I asked about using his stuff on Audi's.
If Ned or CarComp has something new that works with the pre-'92 Audi's then
that would be interesting.......SLM
