I was wondering if you could explain to an utter novice how it is that
the tranny could be shot. I have to say that your story is very alarming
to me personally, as I have a quattro that makes noises from time to
time, and the prospect of having to search for a second hand unit, at
the sort of prices I've seen quoted on the list, fills me with utter
horror, having already spent a small fortune on my car.
