How about the (my) Audi question?

This is the quattro list, last I checked.

I should have bashed a Bimmer, maligned a MBZ, or even (gasp) abused an
Audi, if I wanted to get one measly answer to my question, "Does a bad bomb
set off the Brake light on the dash?"

I don't know about you kids, but I consider myself an Automotive Enthusiast
first and foremost. I have drank more than my share of the automotive
Kool-Aid. The blatt, blatt of a Cobra sidepipe, the almost jet like whine of
a 911's cooling fan, the in your face performance of a Hennesy Venom, the
sheer largess of a Diablo engine, the brakes and handling of a M3, the hand
crafted nature of a M5, the 6 on the 540's shift knob, the great view of a
Testarossa rear fender in the side view mirror, the aggressively flared
front fenders on the 500E as well as the S4, the big fat brakes on the
911tt, the lines of the new Jag and the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage, etc,

I just happen to choose an Audi S4  as my sports sedan. Why? Because the
tuning potential is huge (not that a BMWs isn't, seen a Dinan catalog
lately?), I live at 5,500 feet (turbo!!), and it snows on a moments notice.

My weekend warrior sports car  would be a 911 turbo cabrio.

My track car would be a 914-6. (2000 lbs, open top, no A/C, now that is a
sports car)

My SUV (and I do offroad here in CO) is a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Have fun arguing your M's & Type 44's, but for the love of the gods (Audi
that is) Does a bad bomb set off the Brake light on the dash?
