Re: another one bites the dust

I'm glad to hear that your wife is OK. I have been through an accident in
which an Audi was totalled (I knew as soon as I saw the car from the
outside, the insurance agent didn't even bother getting quotes from a body
shop). I didn't have any serious injuries in that accident and I believe
the only reason I am alive today is because of the safety features built
into that car. I strongly recommend another Audi if for no reason other
than its safety.

My search for a replacement began on the web. I suggest searching for the
model you are looking for with Altavista. You will end up with a ton of
pages to sort through (I spent about 6 hours at the computer) but you
should find something. There are also sites devoted to automotive
classifieds. Here are some links to get you started (some of them are
bookmarks from about 18 months ago, so they might not work):
