Congratulations, and welcome to the Audi Experience!

Yes, other Audi owners go totally ballistic and utterly postal when this
subject is brought up. Other than finding the actual part, the car doesn't
seem to mind.

>Are there any cup holders that are made for this car?

Mention of "Cup Holders" can get you excommunicated from this list. You
didn't know, so you're excused - this time! (g)

>Lastly, anybody interested in a well maintained SHO?

Whatever for? (g again)

Seriously, you've got a fine car, and the info on this list will help you
keep it that way. Welcome to the clan!
