	I agree.  My old Jeep Cherokee, our old Van, my 65' Buick, even
our old Fuego Turbo stayed the same.  Yet every older Audi I know of does
this flucuation thing.  That is a good question why they do this.  I know
my friends VW Jetta does this too.  I wonder if the way the thermostat
works just seems to be all or nothing than other cars.  I really have no
idea though.  L8R
