Re: Requiem for a quattro (long)

Phil:  I am absolutely sick to hear about your accident, and I'm sure I
speak for all of us on the list.  The important thing is that you are OK.  I
will hope for a positive outcome from all of this (maybe an S4 or S6 next?).
Anyway, your story is the best advertisement I have heard for winter tires.
I drive plenty fast on my Hakka 1s (mit studs) and the car absolutely
positively never misbehaves.

BTW, I live right smack in the middle of Quattro Central (Denver, Boulder)
so let me know if you want me to look for you.
