Re: Catering to used car buyers-parts

In the spirit of fun, allow me to point out that Audi has a history of low
sales due to overpricing.  Several recent reviews have pointed this out.
My '87 Ford Escort, which I personally bought new in '87, was just under
$4K.  A similar '97 Ford Escort, with the addition of airbag (because you
can't get them without) is now close to $12K.  The -real- cost of cars has
indeed gone up substantially.

However, maintaining the spirit of fun, I'll leave it at that, wink, and
wish you a happy new year.
