I can only think of three or four listers in the Atlanta area--it's
pretty thin around here.

I agree on both counts here--as much as I gripe about the automatic
transmission, it's much nicer than having to work with a manual when
you're stuck for 1-2 hours on the same stretch of 285.  And when my
mother was looking for a quattro, the salesperson at Jim Ellis tried to
talk her out of it--she finally got one at Audi of North Atlanta (highly
recommended, BTW).  
I usually get funny looks when I flash the lights or wave at other Audi
owners.  I think the only reaction I've ever gotten was from someone in
a fluorescent yellow A4--I flashed and waved out the window and he gave
an embarrased little wave back.  Oh well!
