RE: Is Audi listening...yeah right (Bucksnort comments)

... I think there's a bit more to that than just list members' purchases
of Audis.  Audi is a marque that many people are looking at again ...
some may have been prior owners others not, but where do they look to
for information?  I'll bet a good percentage of the people on this list
are known to friends and colleagues as Audi nuts.  I know for a fact
that my opinion contributed to the purchase of at least 2 A4s in the
past 1.5 years, and I can easily remember at least a half dozen others
that have sought my opinion.  I guess that still doesn't mean that Audi
has to listen ...
